TELSTRA PREMIERSHIP

KNOCK ON EFFECT NSW CUP

JERSEY FLEGG CUP

Perhaps it’s a sign of me not looking at enough NSW Cup teamlists, but I thought Falls was usually #7 and O’Sullivan #6 ? Looking back through a few now they look to switch every week. Any idea why that is?

Looks a strong side, can’t wait for the game.

Would have thought Hopgood would have stepped up as Lock, but clearly I’m not the coach.

Steve you may want to double check your spelling: ‘KNOCK ON EFEECT NSW CUP’

Despite SOO, I agree with Gogatee, that’s still a good looking side. :sunglasses:

Looking at both the cup and firsts squads, I think a late change is likely;

hop’good to lock
Sorensen to centre
Eisenhuth to Bench
Jennings to 18th man

All in all should be good to see the new boys go round.

Personally although probably not quite ready, I would of given Jenkins a go at Centre and Mav on the bench - what better game to blood them than vs the Bulldogs.

Api named?

I guess, barring a training injury to Cook, he will be available

Just watched the jersey presentation by Spud Elford to Kurt Falls. It’s a clear example of why our club is our club.

His story shows how just so many paths exist to an NRL debut.

Good luck tonight Kurt

Falls Jersey presentation

They should be named the underdogs rather than the bulldogs :rofl:

Burto giving his all, but aside from him the dogs offer nothing.

We just have to stay interested and it will be 30+

Our halves are dominating.

Can someone start warming up some humble pie for me :confused:

It wasn’t impressive, but we got the job done. Burton was the only reason we didn’t win by 30+ regardless.

The underdogs would have been scoreless against the St Clair comets / Doonside Roos combination side had it not been for Burton.

I thought we were in trouble the first 20 of the second half, but thankfully when Fish and Leota came back on our defense straightened.

I thought Edwards, Kikau and both halves our best. Congrats Falls on your debut.

JERSEY FLEGG REPORT

Congratulations Kurt Falls on an excellent debut and for taking on the kicking duties in your first NRL game. Well done.

The game wasn’t a classic but we got the points and i hope no injuries…is Smith ok?

The standout players were Edwards, JFH and Kikau who has gone to another level in his last few games and one couldn’t be blamed for thinking he is playing for a contract?

We were very solid but Dogs who are terrible showed up some glaring weakness on Staines side and i am sorry he is not a first grader, at least not to Panthers standard.

Burton must be kicking himself going to the Dogs who are where they deserved to be.

Panthers on the other hand look focussed and determined.

The score actually flattered them with a few disallowed tries by us.

Enjoy the win and prepare for the Knights.

Sadly I have to agree.

Again, sadly this seems par for the course. Perhaps instead of finding excuses to disallow our tries the opposition should be given a 12 point start. At least we would know where we stand then.

Addo Carr was offside for both his tries. The first try was about a metre and the second two - three metres. Unfortunately the video ref left his guide dog at home again, but, miracle of miracles, he regained his site for any possible Penrith infringements…
