    He was probably the difference between the two teams to be fair. Thought Canberra were a bit more composed than Melbourne when they got some good ball and he was a big part of that. Think the commentator said at one point that they’d had 3 tackles on Melbourne’s line but scored 2 tries.

    The pass he threw for the winger was world class though and as you say he say he belted the full back.

    Listening to the Australian commentators cream over Victor Radleigh makes me wonder why a ball playing loose forward has never been thought of previously

    F*cking disgraceful. I don't ask for a win or even a good performance but if that's the level of effort they think is acceptable, a clear out is needed.

    Need to give it a few more weeks, once teams are closer to full fitness, to judge this new six again rule. It’s lead to one-sided blowouts thus far but may level itself out in 4-5 weeks.

    I don't see the point of it especially in the middle of the season. What about getting an option to kick a goal or kick a long penalty to make 30-40 yards down field?

    It's to keep the game speeded up and faster. Kicking for goal or touch gives the defending team valuable seconds of rest and recovery.

    Souths looked fairly ordinary today, another fairly woeful performance.

    Good job they have the Titans next up, gives them a chance to get back on the horse.

    So you prefer the game being slowed down and teams messing about at the PTB? I think you might watching the wrong code.

    If it stops the cynical slowing down of the ruck then i'm all for giving it a go.

    No not at all but you've taken away the option of a penalty that could win a game. And the cynical I agree we can do without but will this do it? Penalties don't stop the cynical stuff which is generally ' in the moment'.

    If the six to go comes over here I'm not sure our refs would be doing as good a job as the aussie refs ,but Its a good rule that's stopped some of the wrestling and favours the sides that want to play attacking rugby

    I don't know how many NRL games you get these days but the ones refereed by the poorer refs Cummins and Klein were no different from last year

    Think Manly have been hard done to there! That wasn't forward and would have given them the win, 20-19!

    We've all seen them borderline passes go both ways but you're right, it was unlucky. I'm really enjoying watching both of those teams at the moment.

    They have come out and said that it should have been a try - and that's the Head of Footy at the NRL!

    Wonder if they will do that with the one thats just been overturned in the Cowboys game, looked like guess work to overturn it.

    Watched both games. Paramatta v Manly being the pick obviously.

    Bad decision re the forward pass but a great game. Brutal game physicality wise but played in good spirit.

    Paramatta's left edge with Jennings & that tank of a winger is very impressive

    The second game wasn't great to be fair but it's generally been good so far.

    Is it you that plays footie for the Cricks? PM me if you want, I just seen the teams are playing from the Gerrard when it starts again.
