Huge game tomorrow for both Cronulla and Penrith. Both probably off the mark as to where both thought they'd be. Very hard to predict, but the Sharks at home look good value.

Friday night's double header has the Bulldogs v Souths in a very interesting game. Souths got the benefit of 50/50 call last week against the Warriors to get them over the line, but should be too good over the bottom of the ladder Dogs.

Massive game Friday night when Melbourne and the Sydney Roosters meet in the GF replay. Both sides have looked really good and this should be a great game. Hopefully 9 do the right thing by the game here.

Huge game for the Warriors on Saturday up against the Cowboys and it's a must win game. Despite nt featuring in the Dally M leader board (amazing what a difference winning makes) RTS has been unbelievable and may well be the difference here. The Dragons and Manly meet in the later game which should be a beauty.

The Titans host fellow strugglers Newcastle on Sunday and they should win. The Raiders should be far too good for the struggling Broncos.

In the final game of the round we get to see the unveiling of the new sports stadium which will be called home to the Eels. It looks so much like AAMI Park which should ensure an awesome atmosphere in the ground.

Parramatta to celebrate the opening with a win.

Good win for the Sharks. Cleary and the Panthers starting to have a bit of pressure building.

Wow that was ugly, but will take the 2 points and run. Can't serve that up against the Panthers next week

Roosters on fire at AAMI. Melbourne score their first try after 38 minutes.

Very disappointing not to see the game on 9.

Should the NRL bring in similar rules to the NFL and give the team that loses the toss at least 1 chance to reply?

Congratulations roosters, but she was all over at the coin toss.

No, it wasn't, not even close. It took a good line break and a ripping kick. Melbourne had their chances in regular time to kick a field goal.

The silence from the Storm supporters after the game was delicious

Definitely needs to be a fairer way of doing it. Should not lose on the 1st possession held.

Great game of footy in the end, but yet another opportunity lost to showcase the home side in their home state.

Was on Gem, for me it was like trying to pick a side in the Iran vs Iraq war...can't they both lose?

Hehe.

I only watch Foxtel, but even their commentary was hard to take. I just don't know if 9 even care about the game.

Well, that was incredibly hard to watch and listen to. Even RTS ****** up enough times to have a the finger pointed at him, although to be fair, he remains our best, just about only, attacking option. Not even sure it's worth going along next week we look so hopeless. Finally, Adam Blair can you just please ******** to wherever anyone will have you.

Refs have lost the plot. Use the video ref up one end when it shouldn't have been, and then they miss a blatant block. A good game ruined.

Great to see Penrith, Melbourne and Manly lose on the same weekend.
Can this Easter get any better ?
Well, Carlton could win, but it's a given that that won't happen.

Was a pretty clear penalty.
Good to hear it wasn't just my slightly biased eyes. My brother is a Saints supporter, so never good to have a loss to them ;). To be honest, I enjoyed the game - was some great defence from both sides.

The lid's starting to come just a little loose...

I thought we were gone this arvo before Wighton pulled that 40/20 out of nowhere. I'm spewing that I have to wait 4 months before the Raiders come to Melbourne :(

Clearly.

The NRL has admitted Manly should have been awarded a last-play penalty in their controversial 12-10 loss to St George Illawarra.
The Sea Eagles were left fuming on Saturday night after winger Reuben Garrick was blocked from contesting a cross-field bomb by his skipper Daly Cherry-Evans in the final seconds.

It happens every. single. time we see drop goal attempts to decide a game. The blatant off the ball blocks are the worst officiated element of the game because refs are too gutless to call it, and cos they apparently think a result (ie. not a draw) is better than a fair result (which may or may not be a draw.)

100% should have been a penalty and who ever kicks for the 2 is good enough takes the game to GP. It's not like Manly win with that penalty.

Massive day out in Parramatta today. Really looking forward to this one. Hopefully everyone enjoys the new stadium.
