Papp looked a little tentative in his first game back.

I reckon Penrith will target him all night with the high ball. Won't be much fun having Kikau storm through.

Luai is an incredible player, but Jahrome Hughes is in great form as well.

Would love to watch these two teams at full strength, but maybe that's for finals time.

Looks like our annual capitulation is under way. Absolute trash served up tonight

Why were the Roosters allowed to take a quick tap but 2 minutes earlier Parra weren’t?

The Referee has made it very obvious which team he supports.
I thought the pivotal moment was a disallowed try that would've made it 12-6 gets whisked up the other end to make it 18-0 instead. Was game over from there.

Parra hugely disappointing though against an undermanned Roosters.

The game was lost at the selection table, Arthur is not a halfback, not yet anyway, and Brown is still rather inexperienced at five-eighth so we were always going to struggle in the halves. I would have tried something a little left of centre perhaps, Mahoney to halfback, he has a better passing and kicking game than Arthur and has more experience at top level, then the #9 could be shared between Will Smith and Stone. It couldn't have been worse than what I saw last night.

Wests v Warriors tonight.

NZ have massive changes to their lineup, but the Tigers are far from reliable. I reckon I'm leaning Tigers as I rate Brooks and Douhi over Hiku and OSullivan

As a neutral, that that was very entertaining for all the wrong reasons. But that doesn't give credit to the NZ team for showing some sheer guts and determination. Well done Warriors.
