In the end our Hayne (Jarryd) was more effective than your Hayne (Shayne).

qld passing was terrible, they couldn't seem to land them in the right spot without fucking up the receivers momentum. also quite a few promising passes down the line with wingers at full speed ended with DCE getting tackled. will be a good game #2.
I'm not quick to praise NSW....but their defence was top notch - G.I. Joe wasn't getting good ball, that's because the D was too good (although i was gobsmacked when he only had Hayne to beat, and passed the ball.....that's not the G.I. i know...) But their goal line defence all the way to the end was great....wrapping up Billy at the end told the story of the game imo. The passing was terrible, but the 'overrated' Cronk was gone....and i don't care what anyone says - he's the best at organizing an attack out of anyone I've ever seen play....and his kicks are almost always perfect (i do stress *almost*)nsw defence was too strong
Deadset, I'd lay it on JT......he could have (should have?) stepped up and taken control when Cooper went off....he didn't, and missed a couple of conversions we're used to seeing him nail (his reaction each time told the story....he was really dirty with himself) but beyond that, he did not take care of the attack - he was as much a passenger as DCE was.....if anyone in the Queensland team is overrated it's JT - future immortal? I don't think so!
That said, if QLD are to win game 2, JT has to turn up - and i reckon he will (honestly i'm more worried about a fired up JT this weekend.....no big 3? Angry JT? Cowboys have to put 50 on the Storm!! )
What do you guys think of the Reynolds tackle? Apparently he'll get two weeks with an early guilty plea.....i honestly thought there was nothing in it.......although i was pretty alone in that thought last night....here i am, defending a Bulldogs and NSW player...and i don't even like either of them.....felt kinda dumb and left said argument swiftly
on a positive note, the text messages i got from bongo and his brother last night were far less abusive than usual for this time of year
intentional or not, that's well said - silly bloke put his head in the wrong spot.....definitely feel for him...but the moment it happened i was all 'Did he just do a Reynolds?' (i think it was Reynolds that went full retard and decided that going head first after being lifted was a good idea) then he didn't get up and i felt like a dick.....but i'll stick by my assessment of him causing it more than the tackle itself.too soon since that guy recently broke his own neck.
I reckon NSW will win the series....they pretty much have to wrap it up in 2 games...but i think they'll do just that (unfortunately) Expect more positive messages
