Who is looking forward to the big race?

I followed the touring cars as a kid and was a Dick Johnson tragic, but I lost interest when he retired and all the cars started looking the same. Drivers were swapping teams between Holden and Ford and I didn’t

"Ball control has always been a theme for us. But I see the rules, given they're supposed to support more open play and a faster ruck, as assisting us more than teams like Cronulla and even Melbourne given how structured their systems are.
Now just b…"

"Super, Superbly written as usual. Journalist quality,  following in Phil's footsteps.
I agree the battle of the ruck is now on steroids: even more critical to win, quicker. You can gain ascendancy and momentum quicker. 
But, as good as we've played…"

"Parra having all the ball was deliberate. Ball control is a real theme this year and in both Titans and Broncos games the Eels strangled the opposition and ran over them in the final 30 minutes. Good to see"

"So the new rules suit Parra based on one game against a team that had  zero ball ? Against a team where Parra had 50 sets ?
 
Lets all hope Super has not gone off prematurely and is actually right about something for a change because being wrong is…"

"Agreed. The way Parra came out last Thursday it was almost as if BA had anticipated the fast game way back during the offseason. He likes to keep his players fit and forwards able to play long minutes. Paulo could easily play 80 min, which is insane…"

Sir SuperEel 22 Hail King Arthur replied to the eggman's discussion Manly v Parra
"Brisbane made the eight last year. They beat the Cowboys and Bunnies in round one and two. Their 7 is good. Melbourne let go the wrong player in Croft. Turpin is a good hooker. What they have is a lack of experience in the forwards. Aside from Alex…"

"It was a great win, but I don't think they'll make the 8. Not enough experience nor leadership. Weak at 7 and 9.

Parra fan on The Hill replied to the eggman's discussion Manly v Parra
"The Broncos have talent to burn. They lack halves, experience and leadership desperately though. They looked rudderless against us. They are hit 'n miss for 8th spot. I personally don't think they'll make the top 8.

Six on the bench?

While there is no reserve grade would it make sense to have six on the bench. Still the same number of interchanges but coaches can use all six if they choose too. This would mean that if teams have injuries the replacements would have had some game…
