Awesome game. Big hits and some good tries. $BW the difference though Roosters got lucky with Sam Burgess failing to put the winger in and Walker failing to ground the ball. Shame Inglis is nowhere near 100% as he showed his class briefly against $BW. 59 700 Crowd is fantastic and the atmosphere came across.

Pretty good game.

Why does Sam Burgess do the niggly stuff though? the ballsack grab and tonight pushing the face into the ground and two sly small kicks to the player on the ground.

Hargraves was always going be put on report for the forearm fend, no need for Burgess to cheap shot him while he is on his back on the ground, it will be noticed and played against by other Coaches, he has a ###### streak in him it seems.

Very entertaining game. SBW clear MoM, what a beast. Apart from that mistackle on the only other player on the field in his class in Inglis, he was brilliant. Did a shitload of clean up work too.

Hope he plays in the World Cup. I hope we can handle him and he loses, of course.

Oh yeah, great crowd. Obviously.

Superb attendance for a round match, I know it was an important one in the grand scheme and as near to play off importance as you can get but that's still an amazing number. I hope plenty of those Aussies journey over here for the world cup.

As annoying as it must be to sit near them, I do like seeing all the banners and flags being waved about. It must be great for the players to see their colours being so proudly paraded aswell as some of them being the subject individually, by mention of by picture.

Some of my friends were there tonight, said it was unreal. Unfortunately the wrong scoreline though.

Thought it was a good game but not earth-shattering. Wasn't massively impressed with Souths to be honest. They failed to build much pressure due to some poor last tackle options.

Also known as an ' winning attitude '. You are quite obviously not a Souths fan I will wager.

Crowd's have been done for the NRL but I think fan's (like SOO) like the big hyped matches and hopefully that what the NRL should be pushing at both ANZ as well as SFS, while Brisbane needs another team to rival the Bronco's.

I heard they were hoping for 50,000.

This is possibly the first time in living memory that a rugby league crowd has exceeded the estimate by a large amount!

A winning attitude is fine, being a Grub is not the same thing is it?

Speaking of the World Cup. That cover tackle by Minicello was as good as I have seen in years. If the rest of the Italian team has that kind of quality they could be a real surprise packet . Wales had better be on their guard at the Millennium.
