NRL Week 6 Wrap-up 

I went fishing yesterday afternoon thinking the Warriors game was live on Prime at 6 and turned up at my parents at about 5:30 to pick something up only to find the second half was starting and we were getting done 20-6. That's what I thought might happen given the players coming back for the Knights, their first game at Marathon Stadium with the new stand, Johns giving his players a serve during the week and a bumper crowd turing out.

So I head for home wondering what the final score might end up and got a shock which sent me skipping down the hallway to watch the DELAYED broadcast on Prime. Good to see what a difference Monty Betham makes. ie. fuck all. All it means is some decent forward like Villasanti has a chance to step up and play like a man instead of a "fairy puff" as Peter Peters called him recently.

Anyway, here's the stats:
Canterbury 16 Roosters 29 (27,111)
Cowboys 44 Wests Tigers 20 (20,361)
Melbourne 14 Parramatta 26 (9,649)
Rabbitohs 6 Penrith 36 (11,108)
Newcastle 26 Warriors 30 (18,173)
St Geo-Illa 24 Brisbane 34 (17,287)
Sea Eagles 36 Canberra (17,061)

Season Ave: 17,639 (2004:14,836, 2003:14,632, 2002:13,157)

The Warriors went into the last round sitting in 8th spot, won their game and found themselves in 9th spot which is a bit odd but down to points for and against. With the two points this round for the bye they should move up to about 7th but it's 'tighter than a nun's...(how does that line finish up?).

Table with teams I think will make the playoffs bolded...
10 Raiders
10 Sea Eagles
10 Sharks
who would have believed those three?
8 Cowboys
8 Broncos
8 Tigers (what the?!)
6 Storm
6 Panthers
6 Warriors
6 Roosters
6 Eels
4 Rabbitohs
4 Bulldogs
2 Dragons
2 Knights
(Can't believe the bottom 3 sides, well the Knights were no real surprise but the other two?)

This weekends draw:
Eels v Tigers
Panthers v Cowboys
Sharks v Broncos
Raiders v Storm
Knights v Bulldogs
Sea Eagles v Rabbitohs
Roosters v Dragons
