Re: NRL Round 17
Fantastic effort from Brisbane .. seriously undermanned (Hodges, Hunt, Tupou all out) and with half a dozen guys backing up from Wednesday night. After getting Manly and Cronulla a little unexpectedly over the past couple of weeks, last night was one they could definitely afford to lose. Say what you like about them but they're perenially such a tough, consistent and competitive club.
67% winning record since inception in 1988, never lost more games than won in a single season, positive for-and-against every season, finals every year since 1991, 50 points scored against them just once in their 18 year history!!
Alright, I'll jump off the soap box now ..
