Yeah, storm will win the comp this year easily. No one is even close to them anymore... They're just too good.

Although, I'm tipping a Dragons v Storm GF
With the same result as 99?

IMO i see the minor premiership as a curse. Rorters won it in 04..lost to us in the GF. Eels won it last year..didnt even make the GF!!..so therefore im glad Melbourne will be winning it.  B)

Yeah, lots of people like to say that, but it all depends on the team... I think pretty much every time the Broncos won the comp they were invariably also the minor premiers, the Panthers were in 03 as well.

P.S In 04 we would have beat the cantebury pack rapists if Ricky Stuart picked someone other than Chris 'couldn't tackle a toddler' Walker on the wing marking Utai.

Oh yes lets resort to calling them rapists..seriously..please get over it.
Oh yeah, lets resort to calling the Roosters the 'rorters'.. seriously please. get over it.

:p . [/b]
Rorters is a bit different to rapists. But if you insist. ;)

IMO the 7 week suspension for FoiFoi is a joke. He gets the same as morley, but yet clearly one was worse then the other. Well thats my opinnion. I aint gunna get all shitty over it though. Hes only an Eel. :p

Well the Eels are the traditional nemesis of the dogs, so I'm surprised you're not baying for his blood! :p But you're right, it was a bit harsh...

For UK fans of NRL, I have read that Sky are dropping NRL, as they lost the rights to Sentana Sports...

Anyone else heard this...

Lol 54-14. What a hammering. And i'm told Mason, Grimaldi & O'Meley only played around 30minutes each.
Grand Final here we come. (hopefully)

BRILLIANT BULLDOGS MAUL COWBOYS

The Mitsubishi Electric Bulldogs have cemented their place in the top two after winning their fifth match in a row with an impressive 54-14 victory over the Cowboys in Townsville tonight.

The Bulldogs arrived in North Queensland on Friday morning with the intentions of taking their game to the next level. They did just that as they piled on five unanswered first half tries to lead the hosts 30-0 at the break.

It all started in the 5th minute off the back of a good run from Willie Tonga. Asotasi was able to get a ball away in traffic before the 'Dogs spun the ball out wide for Andrew Emelio to score. El Masri made no mistake as the Bulldogs led 6-0.

The Bulldogs continued to apply the pressure and nearly came up with a second try minutes later however El Masri placed a foot into touch as the Cowboys fans breathed a sigh of relief.

Not for long though as the Bulldogs persisted in attack with Luke Patten scooting out of dummy half before linking up with Reni Maitua who burst through three defenders to score next to the uprights. El Masri added the extras and the 'Dogs were looking dominant early on.

The two sides then battled it out with the Cowboys throwing all they had at the Bulldogs line only to be repelled on several occasions. Cowboys captain Travis Norton didn't do his side any favours ten minutes out from the break when he reacted to a Willie Tonga tackle. The experienced Norton got up swinging as the two players exchanged blows before referee Paul Simpkins awarded a Bulldogs penalty.

Just minutes later the 'Dogs dove over for their third try as interchange forward Sonny Bill Williams was allowed too much room as he strolled through the defence to score an uncontested try. Hazem continued his kicking success as the Bulldogs jumped out to an 18-0 lead.

That simply wasn't enough for the Bulldogs though as they added a further two tries before the break with Luke Patten and Willie Tonga both scoring long-range tries to give the visitors a stunning 30-0 lead.

With the Cowboys season on the line tonight a much more committed performance was expected however the Bulldogs support play and defence was simply damaging. With that in mind the Cowboys had to score the opening try of the second half to have any hope of a miracle fight-back.

That miracle became the impossible just five minutes after the break as Sonny Bill showed his skill by putting a grubber through. El Masri gathered it up before slipping the ball to Emelio who dove over in the corner for his second of the match. El Masri slotted the conversion from out wide once again and the Bulldogs led 36-0.

The Bulldogs defence was looking unbreakable during the first 55 minutes of play however it finally cracked as the Cowboys enjoyed back-to-back sets on the 'Dogs line before scoring in the corner through Mark Henry. The conversion from out wide was unsuccessful and the scores remained 36-4 in favour of the Bulldogs.

Moments later the Nort Queenslanders were at it again, this time scoring after being given the benefit of the doubt from the video referee. Ashley Graham was awarded the four-pointer after he got the deflection from a well-weighted bomb to score out wide. The conversion was unsuccessful once again with the Bulldogs leading 36-8 with 20 minutes remaining.

The Bulldogs however were not going to let the Cowboys build a decent tally and with just over 15 minutes remaining Sonny Bill Williams made sure of that as he found himself on the end of a Roy Asotasi offload close to the line as he crossed for his second of the night. El Masri made it 7/7 with another successful conversion.

With just over ten minutes on the clock the Bulldogs were dealt a blow as halfback Brent Sherwin was sin binned after being judged to have stripped the ball on the ground. The 'Dogs paid the price immediately as the Cowboys crossed for their third try in the second half as Matthew Scott barged over the line. Graham converted and the scoreboard read 42-14 in favour of the visitors.

The Sherwin sin-bin was sure to put a hole in the Bulldogs defence however it only seemed to lift the blue-and-whites as they dove over for their eighth try with just five minutes remaining. This time Hazem El Masri got in on the act after the ball was sent accross field. He converted his own try as the Bulldogs eyed the half century, leading 48-14.

From the proceeding kick-off Willie Tona broke the line before unloading to winger Trent Cutler who raced away to put the icing on the cake. El Masri converted as he took the final score out to 54-14 along with grabbing a personal tally of 22 points.

The win puts the 'Dogs six competition points ahead of the Broncos, Sea Eagles and Dragons with just four rounds remaining before the finals.

ak47 - for the 6th time this year has had to dig into the pile of 'not needed clothing until next year'

every second week i chuck my raiders gear at the bottom of the pile
every second week i have to pull them back out

farkin raiders are a nightmare team to support this year

consistency is non existent, you dont know what to expect, you dont know who is turning up

if we beat south 2 weeks ago we'd be in top 4 :eek: :lol:

Still got the bye

not going to boast anything anymore.......until the final 8 is determined

It seems to be the best forumula for success

:cheers:

I never pack my Doggies shizz down to the bottom of the pile. I'm still proud even when we are losing.

The Bulldogs are the only thing keeping me happy at the moment.

Its hard for me not to get excited about the GF. Everyone is saying how its going to be a Storm/Bulldogs grand final. And every week that goes by its closer to being that. I don't wanna get my hopes up too much because anything can happen but everyone in the media are just going on and hyping us up lol.

well dragons in bit of trouble for comments nathan brown made about refree stephen clarke. they have been issued with a 15,000 breach notice

http://tvnz.co.nz/view/page/411749/809613

I think brown is expressing what lots of coaches fans etc think. the refs have been shocking this year. the nrl have no balls at all and instead of accepting their refs are bad they stick up for them at every opportunity.

Raiders!!!! :eek: :bravo:

golden points specialists

In the last 18 games we have kicked a FG - we have WON

7 seconds to go in golden point - Shif takes a dart from dummy and runs from 55m to 40m out - 15m dart - got carney into a position to slot a miracle - and he does the thing didnt go higher than 5m above the ground - line drive right over the black dot - raiders win 19-18, and cement their spot into the final race in september

Remember when we were wooden spoon favourites - hahahahah humble humble pie to all

GO THE MIGHTY GREEN MACHINE!!!!!!!! :cheers: :bana: :bleh!: :bravo: :lol:
