First half was dire. One man driveathon. 2nd half picked up. Trent Robinsons teams are always worth watching tho. Best coach going.

If you thought that was dire God knows what you must think about the average Super League game.

If you read my post i said he is slightly ahead of Graham at 25 imo, Graham was a very good prop at saints at 25 but I don't recall him making the breaks and meters Thompson is now only thing Graham has an advantage over Thompson at 25 is his passing game probably Graham only turned into one of worlds best forwards when he went to Bulldogs and was quality for them in 2013 & 2014 seasons Thompson could easily reach Grahams level if he continues to grow as a player like he has over past 2 or 3 seasons.

I like Thompson hes a good forward and if he gets a decent opportunity in NRL he will go well. I first saw James Graham at 14 and watched him all the way thru the juniors and academy. He was the best kid ive ever seen. Unbelievable player.

Thompson is nowhere near him in my opinion but thats no knock on Thompson.

Well I for one am really enjoying the NRL. It might not have the hair 'em scare 'em factor of SL but it is clear to see why the Aussies beat us consistently.

No nonsense hard rugby up the field and then some really good skills on show in the last 20.

Also, more of their games are closer which adds a different type of excitement to SL. I love seeing the Rhinos put 40+ on someone but as a neutral that gets dull quite quick. A game that is in the balance to the last few minutes is much more exciting.

Trent Robinson is a fantastic coach and he certainly knows the game plan required to beat sides, as was shown this week against the Eels

I still think that the Roosters will win the GF again this year
