Don't know how they are in the 8...

Think the Roosters and Manly are both better.
we've been better the last month, some good wins, a close loss, luck (yesterday), but overall more consistent.

early in the year (same last year)....we were winning some and losing some games against lower range teams and copping a flogging from top four teams....currently, still cop a flogging from a top 4 team, most of the time, an occasional win against a top 8 team, but now winning all those games against lower range teams.

roosters and sea eagles both better, and dragons probably end up dropping out of the 8 at the end of the season when there's a run of games against top 4-8 teams. but you never know!

I agree... Roosters, Manly and Souths to come home strong.

Roosters are a lot bette the dragons yet they are 2 games behind them...baffling.

Dragons will get flogged when they play good sides now that orgin is over.

Edrick Lee scoring 5 was awesome but my goodness, the Titans defend wildly too narrow.

5 and 3 to both wingers, so youre right, Titans way too compressed
Never seen anything like it before.

It was alarming how open they were for all of them.

Admittedly, one of Lee's shouldn't have been awarded. Mattered not in the end but a really strange decision.

Bad coaching maybe, thinking the Knights would attack them down the middle -- angle and cut back runs

That shows a lack of thinking on his feet from Holbrook if that's the case.

Understandable, wet wild conditions, like a noob thought the opposition would not spread the ball wide, often thats a good tactic in the wet to turn the ball back in, angled runners, cutting back inside. But these days theyre not afraid to throw it around still, the balls are dimply wet weather proof now, and we saw it during other games, teams scoring a lot of tries still spreading it wide.
