Was a reasonably fair game for nrl standards 16 young ones against last year's finalist was a top effort i actually enjoyed the game .
2 penalties in 20 minutes was fucking awsome

I love how they try and rip the upper body off of their opponent and nothing happens... We had the right game plan to combat their wrestle though

Refs didn't want all of the NRL's 'Cameron Smith promotion' to go to waste.

fuck the nrl is corrupted... storm players slowing down the ruck no penalty
I absolutely thought the same thing. They were literally sleeping on our players and still no penalty. But, what a bloody fantastic effort from the boys. That was a quality game and we have every right to believe in ourselves going forward

It was actually a very balanced game. Bulldogs got 4 penalties to Storm's 8. That's a ratio of 1:2. Normally Storm get a ratio of at least 1:8 in their favour.

100% I saw so fucking many forward passes by the storm. And not just 50/50 calls, they were blatant forward passes. Yet no penalties.
I was screaming at the TV and even rewinded it ti make sure. Over and over again. It was ridiculous

Not just that, flopping on players after a line break, the usual werestling etc. we hold for a second or so too long and the ref starts yelling "surrender!!".

The bias was obvious. Dogs fan or not it was clear.

It was near ridiculous...

What killed me the most was the dirty wrestling techniques the storm use, countless headlocks, leg twisting and even attacking the head. Either outlaw it all police it properly !

We have had only 12 penalties all year. Funny thing is if you look at the stats we start getting penalised to death once we are in front.
The first 2 games that we got pounded in we were barely penalised
