Yeah, great signing. I reckon we will use him in the halves in place of Johnson. Kennedy seems OK at full back and Katoa and Mulitalo are attacking players on the wings. All we need is a halfback to pair with Hynes.I just watched the Storm game. Hynes was great again; he kicks goals, he even had a spell at dummy-half, what can't he do?
Katoa went on report and it was looked at. When you look frame by frame Katoa contacts Sironen with an open hand, it is not a fist or a forearm as some would have you believe. It almost looks like Katoa is not looking at Sironen and is trying to hit the ball. His hand actually contacts the ball then deflects into the falling Sironen's face. The aftermath probably looked worse than the action. I think that is what prompted Braith Anasta's over the top comments. Sironen was not 'split open' as Braith anasta says but there was a lot of blood. He was not hit by a 'swinging arm' but by an hand as the vision shows. In fact Sironen falls face down and his face bounces on the ground.It was Katoa on Sironen. Even the usually biased commentators couldn't believe it. Not even charged. Looks like the NRL have gone soft again.
I honestly thought he'd retired . Obviously don't keep up with the NRL as much as I should ...Sharks sign Dale Finucane on a 4 year deal worth $2.6M. Nice work.
He joins Cameron McInnes (Dragons) and Nicho Hynes (Storm) as big name signings for 2022.
Yes, it was a really poor twenty minutes at the start of the second half. First job for Fitzgibbon is to get these blokes playing 80 minutes of football. They went to the sheds at half time thinking the job was done and the rest was just a formality.Another Sharks game of two halves. Up 30-6 at HT I said that we were in danger of losing, and sure enough we cough up two in two minutes. If it was anyone but the Bulldogs it would have been touch and go after that, but we steadied a little and finished with a good (but not particularly convincing) win.
Johnson's season (and career with the Sharks) looks over after another hammy . I wonder what could have been if we'd been able to keep him on the park with any consistency.
