Apparently there were big queues to get into Canberra stadium and some people simply left. How the fuck can you struggle to get around 13,000 into a large venue? Answer: everybody tried rocking up to the game 10 minutes before kickoff. Stiff shit. get there for the curtainraiser. that's what they are there for. If you aren't interested in your up and coming players then you probably aren't that interested in the premier side.

But I bet they wished they had stuck around. The Raiders piled on 8 tries in a freakin hammering of a Knights side which included Johns. I was thinking during the game that the Raiders are a shadow of the side they used to be which begs the question, what would the Knights have lost by versus a Raiders squad featuring: (before I list it, they talk about each State of Origin team as being "possibly the best ever NSW or Queensland side, well this Raiders side of 1994 would wipe the fucking floor with the weak as piss SOO sides these days and it was just one club team).

There were a few other handy players I omitted from that list and they still would have had to have left two from that list on the reserve bench.

I reckon that Raiders team would have beaten Newcastle 192-0 last night.

The Warriors would have got a bit of a timely reality check. they had played two good halves of football so far (one v the Eels and one v the Broncos) against teams who now have 1 win from 6 games. It doesn't get much easier. they play teams 1 and 2 this weekend in the Sea Eagles and Cowboys. they will want at least one win in order to stay in the top 8. We are a confidence team so the last thing we need is two losses, a suspension and a couple of key injuries heading into the bowels of the season. We are a top 4 side so we need to prove it by taking care of one of them.

Notice all the "we's"?

In other news the Super 14 is a disgrace. Although the last 20 minutes of the Blues v Chiefs game was willing enough.
