Just about to put it on, followed by the sequel, havenโ€™t watched them in ages & this jogged my memory. Wonโ€™t watch prequel, it was absolute rubbish.

For manly love
be here March 25th
2.15am sharp

Check out Cbassโ€™s cap when they run out of the diner :rofl:

Check out the Taxi driver when they get out in the rainโ€ฆcanโ€™t believe thereโ€™s not a single job in this town, nothin, nada, zip - yer, unless you wanna work 40 hours a week!


Cleary has given Edwards another week off.

Tago and Smith named on extended bench, maybe a debutante this week?

:mega: Team Lists and officials have been updated here.

Telstra Premiership

Moses Leota returns from injury and Dylan Edwards has been rested for another week from injury.

Kurt Capewell has taken an early guilty plea from a crusher tackle and will miss this weeks match, serving an one match suspension.

:mega: Team List Late Changes had been added.

Lindsay Smith and Mitch Kenny will drop from the first grade squad to the NSW Cup side.

Penrith 1-17, Tago 18th man

Tyrone May bring his own bench or something ?

Hetherington 2 high in 3 mins (on report x1).
FFS โ€ฆ heโ€™ll be off (sent) before full time.

Interchange after 18 minutes - Barrett must have had the same thought Puss.

a dreadful lacklustre first 40 by Panthers. On this performance only Cleary gets a SOO gig, that may not be a bad thing !!! :wink:

Very ordinary first half. We look like we are only going through the motions. Hopefully the try from Leniu will fire us up a bit.

Yknow, Dogs have tried hard and show a spirit that suggests continued improvement. Good luck to them.

Pretty sad when you can say you are underwhelmed by a 30-4 win. Maybe my expectations are getting a bit high?


and that to of Panthers ! I hope it will act as a wake up call, because they were not at their best. But good luck to Bulldogs, they were in the game fist half but couldnโ€™t maintain their effort.

Panthers were not focused at all.


Just got home from the game. It must say something when I feel flat about a 26 point win.

Luai played himself out of a NSW Jersey I think. Worst game I have seen him play in a few years, pushing passes, trying to score of every play etc.

Martin was brilliant, dangerous with every run, why oh why doesnโ€™t support run along inside him?

Staines is playing above his weight and age.

And I will eat my words, Critta had his best game at fullback.

Basically a performance to learn from then forget.

Dogs tried hard, but they should learn from us that Dallin is a liability.
