If Souths lose it will be because of overconfidence from the Roosters win. They should win. - Springs
merritt is really in orgin form tonight.. - muzby
i thought about playing a new drinking game.. i take a swig every time matt ballin remonstrates for a penalty whilst he's standing at dummy half... but then i realised i only have a six pack of beer here, so i'd be done by halftime.. - muzby
Oh my god champion again this is the worst individual performance I've seen since Talanoa - BranVan3000
As I've said, match it with their (Souths) forwards and their a one trick pony. - God-King Dean

Cows by a bit. With Actual halves instead of potatos controlling the attack the Broncs defence won't look anywhere near as good. - Packy
Why is every high tackle automatically on report? - Jason Maher
FMD - Griffin has one of the best 80 minute back rowers in the game sitting on the bench after 20. - Frank_Grimes
Corey Parker. 76 this year and still carving up - Hutty1986
f**k the Broncos. The biggest nursery in the game and they have to leech of the hard work of other clubs. - skeepe

Saints to continue marching in here even without Witty. - wittyfan (a Witty fan)

Huge game for Storm.. Cameron Smith breaks club record for most games played for Storm..263
Billy plays his 250th game for Storm.
Cameron Smith re-signs with Storm.
Can`t see Storm losing this game.. - STORM.99/07
Hopefully we see the Kev Naiqama the Knights fans talk about and not Wes' brother we've seen so far - umina panther
Really? Pink vs purple? - skeepe
The players are old enough to know to watch the sidelines off kick offs. - thorson1987

Luke Bailey - "This is a game we should win".
If the Titans all go in with that attitude I'm liking the Tigers chances. - KeepingTheFaith
Bloody warm in brissie today, it'll be a couple of degrees cooler down the coast but not enough to make it comfortable footy weather. Reminds me of when we had to play the titans at 1.30pm in the middle of march in Queensland and got absolutely belted. - Paullyboy
70m dropout from Big Pat. We would win a game this year if we just played force 'em backs. - axl rose
Lawrence back to being a tampon - gronkathon
Kelly is doing what Barba did in Reggies. Going for intercepts because he does not trust his defence - gronkathon

Newcastle Knights v Canberra Raiders

How the punters tipped it:

Knights (39.13%) Draw (4.35%) Raiders (56.52%)

Quotable quotes:

I can't wait until skeepe gets here to tell us how much of a druggy/criminal club we are, while compeltely ignoring his own hypocrisy given that Canberra has wheeled out a shitload of drama over the past few years themselves. Where is R69, too? He saw a syringe on a Newcastle beach once, he'll tell you all about it. It's a cool story. - perverse
Where did this rivalry between Newcastle and Canberra come from? Did Johns pop a pill then piss on Meningas statue? - I Bleed Maroon
Wow Milford... - meercat
The penalty square ups are coming... - Paullyboy
Can we get a highlights package of this game to the Benny Hill theme - meercat
knights need to get gidley to fb before its too late! - DOGSvEELS

I've picked the Dogs just because the Sharks are still without half their salary cap. - I Bleed Maroon
Sharks are looking shit. - _snafu_
Why the f**k was a video ref needed for that - Twatface Magee
You could set your watch to Williams dropping it - dogslife
Sharks really looking like a reserve team now, everything going the Dogs way, Sharks don't look able to reverse the momentum. What a depressing start to the year! - wibble
If the Sharks stay on 0 its highly unlikely they will win this - Haynetrain
