More claret - the Catalans players are a bit leaky today.

Thaler has remembered cannonballs aren't allowed this week. Maloney should have said he was falling.

I thought cannonball was just from the side but ok from behind? Even though I'm against this tackling technique

It's headshots that are fine this week.

You'd assume the players would have got the memo.

Great try by Catalan. You just knew Davies was going to get ankle tapped... 😂

Good chase, but in vain.

And head squeezes when the arms are wrapped up!

Tompkins had a very influential 1st 40.  Two assists plus crucial try saver when it looked like JMcG would power through.

6-20 Catalan. HT. 

That scoreline seems pretty one sided to anyone not watching the game, yet there's hardly anything in it, dragons have probably made more metres and possibly had more possession, the big difference is that they've turned their pressure into points and our last tackle options have been pretty poor.

I don't think we've played bad at all, but a couple of defensive lapses and a great try at the end is the difference.

Just hoping our heads don't drop too much and we know what happened to Catalans last week.

He gets a lot of stick, especially from a section of our support who seem to hate his mere presence, but he's class, defensively and offensively.

As Terry would say "quality inte"

If Catalans complete their sets, they will win comfortably, as they are dangerous with the ball. They are an attacking, dynamic team reliant on scoring plenty of points to win. They do tend to need 20+ points lead after 60 minutes though, so this game is far from over.

Maloney is terrible, Catalans are winning in spite of him rather than because of him.

How true.  Wild pass then head high challenge gives Shudds the leg-up they need.

Although it is fine margins. Another couple of inches in height and that was a stroll in. I guess the point you are making is that he is paid to make the pass complete. His discipline is lacking like many of his team mates.

He certainly isnt having a great game here today. His goal kicking is on point however his all round game isn't what You would expect from a Player who was a Top NRL Half Back two seasons ago.
