Both sides were grubs and it was to bad they both couldn't lose on the night. Holding down in the tackle, running players off the ball and tackling without the ball along with the use of the head and a few shoulder charges tossed in for good measure
The Ref kept threatening the Broncs over goal line penalties BUT never took any action other than the penalty

Glad someone else agrees with me! Despite all the 'close, compelling match' stuff, I thought the game was overall actually quite low on quality, with Ben Hunt an honorary exception. Cronk kept getting the ball on the right in attack, but lacked support runners, and all too often, Storm attacks just petered out. And Hunt just owned him in the kicking contest. Cheap shots aplenty from both sides too, with the Storm probably the guiltier of the two parties.. Niggle, niggle, niggle.

And only Thaiday charged with contrary conduct. Must have missed the Milford shoulder charge.

Some bad injuries for the Storm.

Loved the Kaufusi vs Thaiday battle.
