They didn't give the Broncs a chance.
It didn't help that some of the Broncs started to believe their own hype and paid the penalty.

So... should Billy be banned?
Rules are rules and legends are legends, what will win out?

I'd say Cronk is no chance. They should at least level the playing field.

Not a Billy fan, but I don't see an issue with his tackle, especially the front on shot.

I agree that Cronk won't make it.
I think with Billy they've made a mountain out of a mole hill.
Have a good close look at the first point of contact.

I am not a Melbourne supporter, Nothing in the Billy tackle. Be a shame if he is out next weekend after everything he has done for the game!

And there you have it.
I think either way, if Cronk plays or doesn't, Melbourne will win.

Billy Slater gets cleared of a shoulder charge, and it's the leading news item in every bulletin I've heard this morning.
It was probably worth mentioning in the sports news, but really...

Apparently, people thinks it is exciting to watch men playing with their balls! TV announcers seem obsessed anyway.

Judging purely on the myriad of views and reviews in the News, it didn't look dangerous to me.

The secret of life is honesty and fair dealing. If you can fake that, you've got it made.

And the Storm leave their worst game until last. I've never seen a Melbourne team drop more balls in the past 10-12 years?
Having said that, the Roosters were clinical. Their defense let nothing through and they played the big moments perfectly.

Seems a shift of power in a few positions too. Teddy well-outplayed Slater (even in the Origin series), Latrell is now 4-0 in big games against Chambers.
Whilst Munster had enthusiasm, it seems we all know his weak spot now - and was seriously outplayed by Keary.

Despite the final blowout score, I found myself constantly on the edge of my seat waiting... but Melbourne never turned up.

I really had no idea as to which team would win, and didn't really care either.
But I was really surprised at the margin and the dominance of the Roosters.
I thought it would be a really close game, whoever won.

The NRL have a new logo. And like numerous liveries, it will be a "bold new look", and "designed to attract new audiences".
