Souths got the rub of the Green again tonight.
They may have looked like convincing winners but early in the game every line ball call went their way compared to the calls the Cowboys had.
Souths are playing really well but they appear to have the Midas touch with luck and decisions for the whole season.
Things go in cycles usually.

George Burgess looks to be the single most destructive runner of the football in the NRL forward community - he was bowling over seasoned internationals in the Cowboys line-up as if they were a bunch of skittles.

He possesses such great acceleration, with a running style that combines high knee-lift with a pair of threshing elbows - where Adrian Morley, in his prime, was probably the NRL's most feared hit man, George Burgess has quickly assumed the mantle of the NRL's most explosive runner.

His footwork is amazing for such a big guy.

George is having a great Season so far.
The Cowboys were quick to try and stop his momentum but because they had him running out wide he still got space to build up.

In saying that, some players have Purple patches and some just keep on performing.

Tony Williams was the most dynamic forward in the NRL last year, not so much now though.

Tony Williams is a lazy player though. He still has the ability to do what he did last year. He just doesn't have the work rate needed to continually be a top player.

Did they?
George was out wide and only played half a game.
Sam did ok but no more than many of the Souths pack did.
You do realise Souths have a team stacked with talent besides the Burgess Boys?
Souths Halves and Fullback are far more the reason they are going well this year than any Forward players.

That is true and that has a lot to do with why he has moved around Clubs.
On his day he can be devastating though, he has done enough to get Rep honours but needs to do more consistently.

George made more meters in the game than any cowboys player and broke nine takles with two line breaks, in only 14 carries. The SMH states the game changed
when he came on. On the souths forum their own fans are rating him in the top three players every game. Give yourself a break. If there was a 'superman' on the pitch in this game he was an english one.

Um, both Burgess boys were great last night. George was bloody brilliant, again. There's really nothing else to discuss.

Awesome game going on here between Warriors and Doggies. Sounds like a great atmosphere at in the big Wellington crowd.

A wonderful attendance in Wellington of over 30000 - well above anything the Super Rugby (union) franchise of the Hurricanes has managed all year - a vibrant atmosphere and thrilling game to boot...

What a game that was! How many tries did we bomb but a well deserved win. I knew even at 16-0 the game wasn't over, mainly due to the wind but also that was typical Warriors.

Thought Pritchard was awesome with the ball and really carried the team forward. With a full pack, we are tough to beat and going down to NZ makes it twice as hard anyway, especially in front of an energetic crowd like that. Good win, onto next week.

On to George, I didn't even think he ran that wide! His two breaks came pretty central and I'd say 90% of his work was in between the "20m marks"
