Exciting spectacle, and a clinical display by the Roosters, but not a great game to watch, since it was so one-sided; and as others have said, I have a special dislike for some of the grubby tactics of Slater and Smith, so it was nice to see them comprehensively outplayed.

They know how to put on a show don't they?

I can’t read it either, I did find this though

Radley was born in Sydney, New South Wales and raised in Bronte. He is of English descent through his father Nigel. He played junior rugby union for the Clovelly Eagles and junior rugby league for the Clovelly Crocodiles, before being signed by the Sydney Roosters.

Brilliant performance from the 12 man Sydney Roosters, against a star studded Melbourne Storm.

When in the past has a team gone into a Grand Final knowing that one of their players is physically crippled?

Didn't Paul Wood play a Grand Final with a ruptured testicle for Wire?

Yes, the 2012 Grand Final, although the injury occurred during the second half of the match.

That second half performance by Paul Wood would be comparable to Cooper Cronk's performance the previous week against South Sydney, when he was injured for the second half of the game.

I would suspect that there is no equivalent to Cooper Cronk going into and playing an entire game, in particular a Grand Final, knowingly crippled.

It worked didn't it? He was well protected throughout the game and marshalled his side brilliantly. Of course if it happened over here everyone would be crying about it and player welfare...blah,blah,blah. Ask Cooper if it was worth it! It was a gamble and paid off in spades.
