The ref is basically giving decisions both ways to get himself out of a jam created by his own indecision.

That last try was as soft as butter. Sharkies out in straight sets here unless something pretty remarkeable happens

Souths playing better, but they are letting them hold them down and slowing the sharks play the ball every time. Different sets of rules.

I do notice from the 2 7 tackle sets the Souths defenders are allowed to move up when the Sharks player with the ball is at the 15 well before tapping the ball at the 20.

Lucky the video ref is more competent than the muppet on the field.

Panthers v Souths next week should be lit. This will be their 4th finals meeting in the last 3 years, all games by a converted try or under:

2020 PF: Panthers 20-16

2021 QF: Souths 16-10

2021: GF Panthers 14-12

2022 PF: ?

If we get past North Queensland on Friday night, who do we want to play in the Grand Final?

Penrith who've gone 65 and 10 in the last three seasons and going for back-to-back premierships or,

Souths who have the last six against us by an average of around 30 points.

As strange as it may sound I'm going to say Penrith, at least we know we can beat them.

53 missed tackles by Cronulla according to channel 9. That really is unacceptable particularly for a team that finished 2nd at the end of the regular season.

Yeah.... Roosters, Penrith, Storm, Parra, Souths and Cows all better than the Sharks. Bizarre how they finished 2nd.

Souths v Penrith prelim is the real GF

Is it just me or did the Panthers cop a raw deal and should be playing on the Friday night instead?

Speaking of that, Souths arguably look the 2nd best team in it from 7th right now.

agree... it was always them and roosters behind penrith yet they both finished outside top 4.

I swear the origin period *s teams and helps other teams during the regular season.

It might be my Penrith bias shining through but i think it would be crazy to want to vs Penrith over anyone left in the comp.

The gap between Penrith and the rest when fit this year has been crazy, they have lost 1 game all year with anything remotely close to a full roster.

Now that is not to say they can't be upset, but i would not want to face them.

Did say that I was topping Souths the other semi I wasn’t shocked it was a
Flogging Canberra only beat Melbourne
Penrith vs Souths is probably the GF IMO. If Panthers win, don't see them losing the week after.

Rabbitohs-Panthers is a marquee matchup, a "grand final" caliber game....but why wouldn't/couldn't Eels vs Panthers also be a "grand final" either?

Regional rivals, a physical war, and Eels have beaten Panthers this year. Plus the controversial finals game last year.

I wouldn't even rule out a Cowboys-Panthers or Cowboys-Rabbitohs as potentially close and exciting grand finals.

Not as confident an Eels-Rabbitohs would be.

As stated we can beat Penrith, even when we aren't at full strength, we have no chance against the Bunnies.:)
