    That was unbelievable. No points in the first and last 15 minutes and they still got 64 points.

    Good to see Johns appears to be getting out of his injury worries and the rep footy is now over, so it's all heads down, arses up for the finals from now on.

    All 64 points coming in 50 minutes... shows how mentally weak they are against the Kangaroos. Once the Aussies scored, they scored again and again in quick succession.

    Huge problem, really, with International Rugby League virtually non-existant. Union's most attractive selling point. (besides the money)

    Broncos beat the Panthers. Into 2nd spot, but the Knights can reclaim it if they beat the Raiders, which they should if Johns plays.

    Roosters were killed. Up and down team. Forget the other results.

    The Eagles got the Cowboys in the other one.

    I'm not sure what was more embarassing. The 54 point drubbing of the Poms in our International, or the dismal game in New Zealand tonight that the Kiwi's won 12-6 with not one try scored for either team. Even the Ruggeroids at the pub were groaning at the level of play.

    Wedge wont be too happy with the knights game

    will help make some of the final weeks more interesting

    tough win for the AB in the wet & cold, good forward battle

    and we won the soccer

    what a weekend

    pity the Aussie england game was so one sided

    I'm not too upset about the Knights game. The two teams below us trying to get a fourth spot lost as well. So we didn't let anyone gain ground on us.

    And the rep season is now over for us. So we don't have to wait on players anymore.

    My mate's cousin won a competition to meet Andrew Johns after the test last Firday. The picture of the meet was in the Newcastle Herald this morning, it was very funny as she's about 6'1" and johns would struggle to be 5'10".

    I see Lote has become another one to jump on to the ARU gravy train

    who will he play for then, NSW or ACT?

    ACT, I'd say. Man, that's two Test wingers in two seasons for the Broncos. Ouch.

    No change at the top of the table either. LisaJ comes from no where to take the round!

    Wedge, a distant 5th.

    Yeah I had a shocker. I still haven't bothered to check on the leader board this week. It's my way to sulk online.

    I saw Fatty! At grace brothers in the city, and i was like all smiling and he started smiling and i was too embarrassed to say hello. He was just like on the show like smirking and sorta shaking his head as if to say "heh, this chick so knows who i am".

    Anyway, it was the most exciting thing all day.

    Tough week to tip this weekend. But here's your Tips Reminder!!!

    Bulldogs and Knights is the match of the round. I've already got my ticket and with last Sunday's game in Newcastle being a sellout, it looks like it'll be a good day out.

    It will be bloody cold down there. Should be fine and clear though. NSW isn't exactly swimming around at the moment like you New Zealanders seem to be. We need rain desperately, I can't remember a more dry Winter.

    Eels lose their 6th in a row and the Broncos stay well in the top four with last night's game.

    Also, Outback_dueback, if my girlfriend picks a perfect round she'll pick up the bonus point and will nudge ahead of you.

    More stuff to sweat on! [face_clown]

    Todd Polglase is playing for the Bulldogs tomorrow. He's another guy who's brother I went to school with. Unlike Paul Franze though, I had nothing to do with Todd P and had little contact with Kurt.
