Yeah, can't see Storm not winning but hoping Raiders win next week

I can't see my Rabbits even coming close to beating the Storm in a potential GF

Of course when it is us it comes out on game day. Results in less than 3 weeks too. Xerri took 6 months. Never change NRL. Not defending Jenko but the timing is an amazing coincidence.

Well they had to wait until they’d gotten Cronulla to release Morris before they could release Xerri finding and doing it in the off season doesn’t have the same impact...

With a few hours to go to kick off Michael Jennings tests positive to banned substances. Unbelievable, it has to disrupt the Eels preparation.

First Segayaro then Xerri and now Jennings these guys do not seem to learn. You have to wonder how many more are pushing the envelope.

Back to the game- Bunnies are red hot atm and will take some stopping the Eels have to get on top early because the way the Bunnies are going if they get the bit between their teeth they are unstoppable.

Tip- South.

Every year a team who wins the elimination final suddenly becomes favourite to beat a side who made top 4 and was clearly better all season long. Yet Fox Sports are running the story as biggest upset when 3rd beats 6th...

Not a great start to the second half. Reckon we will need at least 2 tries

Funny hearing Vossy talk about the potential of golden point.

Who hear doesn't see this being a manufactured contest right to the 80th minute (at least) to try and make sure the game is good enough to knock Jennings and Sailor off the front and back pages tomorrow.

I could be wrong - but in 2020 I don't believe any professional athlete is stupid enough to try and gain a competitive advantage by doping. And I think we know from cycling, athletics - and yes, NRL and AFL - that when doping happens it's usually part of a program, not one individual going rogue.

It's almost certainly a tainted supplement, or something that was "tainted", but had the ingredient in it, and Jennings didn't check it with the club.

Our form in the last month or so has been terrible
