Throwing punches in the NRL is an automatic 10 minute sin binning, not a straight red.

Congratulations Saints!

I like many others wrote off your chances when Luke Walsh was stretched from the field two thirds of the way through the season.

Whilst the rugby from that point forward may not have been the prettiest, the team spirit and desire to prove everybody wrong was what champion teams are made from.

I really enjoyed the Grand Final experience and whilst the "third minute incident" was deplorable, it ratcheted up the drama of the whole occasion even more.

For a minute I thought he had mistakenly identified Lance as a cockney.

No, I think you will find Lance O'Higher is Irish :D

Am I missing something?

He's referring to LMS dropping an F-Bomb in the post match interview.

I'll add another into the mix, although I'm being semi serious here as I've had this thought a number of times.

Is there a standard measurement for the thickness of pitch markings? Especially in the Championships, some pitches are marked with thick lines, whereas others have really narrow whitewash. This could be the difference between a ball in touch or not or a try allowed or disallowed.

The world needs to know.;)
