Before Friday I’d have agreed with you. However my drunk 2 year. Oils have told you that was a forward pass if you are getting that wrong what happens in a grand final?
I think we'll see at least one regardless. Still think overall, Atkins has been better.
The major balls ups came from the VR.
I have to say I think the VR got the calls right this weekend. Penrith had a few disallowed but they were clear no tries. The obstruction has been ruled that way all season do I agree with the interpretation no but it’s consistent that’s all you can ask. The only howler was the NFL pass by Moses and did it lose the cowboys the game, not sure but it didn’t help.
Agree,Looking forward to it. I don't think it'll be a blow-out.
Penrith’s bench is just a whole other monster, we have had quite a few games that are close at the 50-60 minute mark and we’ve blown them away. I think Parra have to lead early or it’s game overPenrith have won 54 games in a row when leading at half time apparently so the first half will be crucial if Parra are any hope.
Everyone looks lost against Cleary’s bombs. Blake will be long odds to be defusing them, the real deciding factor will be pressuring his kicking game. Do that and they are some chance, also trying to abuse the Sivo/Staines match up because I think it is just about the only clear advantage they have on the fieldAgree,
If it's tight late, anything can happen. Both Moses or Cleary very capable of giving their side the win with a field goal, and both have forwards that can get them in position to do so.
I think a big factor in this will be if Waka Blake has gotten over his nightmares of the last few weeks and catches some balls. He dropped a few in the QF, and I think he also dropped a couple last week against the Cowboys. Based on that, Cleary will undoubtably target him all game, and he will give him multiple high bombs that anyone would be nervous under, especially under the pressure of a GF. If he drops 2-3 again and that gives Panthers multiple looks at the Eels try line, then Panthers will win fairly straightforwardly.
For the Eels to win, I think they need to be as close to flawless as they can be, and they need everything to go right for them. That includes being on the right end of the bunker, which unfortunately is such a huge factor now in deciding close games. Their team is very good, but I feel like they have to rise to be at 100-110% of their best to win this, whereas Penrith can win it if they just play to the same level they have all year.
