Mason makes a good run. red almost goes through them. Manly make ground too easily. Foran kicks. Awful kick. Then a penalty to the Titans.
Gina Riley: Oh, come on, John. That’s a bit old hat, the corrupt IOC delegate.
John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.

Tap on half way. Titans hit it up. Douglas doesn't try anything fancy. Then Mead does the work of Taylor. Mortimer holds up a pass and it's defused easily. Last tackle. Goal line drop out because Frilled Neck Lizard takes it dead.

Drop out and then a penalty. Mortimer passes back inside and fools no one. Peddyborne then tackled. Mortimer confuses his own players. Then a forward pass from Mortimer. What a joker!

I see Reptar as more of a Saturday and Sunday specialist.

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

Here's a tip for Neil Henry. Play one short instead of Mortimer at halfback. He's as useless as a bottle of water at Nickman's table in the Velocity Lounge.

Mateo steps but doesn't off load, Matai runs a million miles a hour at the defence. DCE kicks, Mead picks it up and the Titans work it away.

Titans up to the 40, they kick, and Stewart takes it. Manly now on the attack. Mateo with a crazy pass to Matai, and then passes it out, and Trbjrovikjavikovic is over. Video ref coming up.

Titans look frustrated. So at least they look something! Last tackle, Stewart grubbers but gets too much purchase and it goes dead.

Taylor does something too late to make a difference. And then he has a lovely offload to Roberts, who gets taken but gets up again, but Mortimer knocks it on to **** up possibly their last chance to get off a duck.

Mortimer actually with a decent play! Puts Taylor in a gap, who offloads to the debutant. Titans start their come back, 4-38. Are they in with a chance?!?! Conversion goes over. It's now 6-38. Grandstand finish coming!

How bad was Mortimer , how can this guy be playing FG even with their injuries. Id rather play the lazy ass Taylor at halfback.

Titans havent recruited yet for next year other than Shillo. They will be fighting for the spoon.

Some of the calls in the game defy logic. Are the refs in a parallel universe and are watching something completely different? Surely this weekends game will hurt the 97% correct calls
