    Who didn't love that period with 10 to go with the teams getting stuck into each other? But then we have to be politically correct and stop it. I probably sound like a dinosaur, but the feeling at the end was what rugby league fans (imo) want to see. We don't like Melbourne, they don't like us, matches between us used to enthral the rugby league world because there was feeling.....there was genuine hatred. Nup lets stop that, sterilise everything.

    If I could pinpoint one thing that is wrong with rugby league its that, the powers that be have tried to turn a gladiatorial sport into a pc sport where refs and players listen to each others feelings and points of view,so we can say how enlightened we are as a sport.

      With 10 to go, the team started to lift. The Brown went to hooker and it was game over

                    Biff stopped when Gallen whinged to NRL Smith in '13, about using the rough stuff in Ads to promote Origin.
                    The Galleon should have kept his cake hole shut.

                      I liked seeing a bit of fire from the team, too, but once the smoke had cleared Melbourne ended up going in for another easy try, so we didn't even win the biff.
