EYE-BALL’s Snoop-Poop on – NRL – The Friday Night Fight …

Title: The NRL – The Friday Night Fight …
Everybody has their opinion about the events during the Manly v Storm game last Friday. The brawl between Manly’s Glen Stewart and Storm’s Blair was emotionally charged and in the heat of battle – a brain explosion – in fact before it erupted they seemed to be setting the whole thing up – it was vicious and the ugly part was watching four Manly scum rush in to make it a five in one contest. This is the issue.The NRL’s Gallop will fly his true colours this week – the Manly verses NRL over the Brett Steward rape allegations leave no sweetness between either side – the NRL’s response to the Storm’s salary breaches also holds grudges.The Judiciary is having another controversial year – the Taylor suspension before State of Origin three – the Uate exoneration for a similar offence before SOO 1 – the handling of this matter a week before the finals start has the potential to blow many well structures betting sheets. As many as 4-5 manly players could find themselves doing some time – Stewart is gone for the season and so is Storm’s Blair. Anything less makes a mockery of the system.

Reports are that Gallop had security guards protecting him all night – there is no doubt the game was charged – but then this is footy and why it draws the crowds. Would it have been the same if Gallop was not there?

What’s important is what did Blair say to Stewart for him to react the way he did? These are senior players and i such a big game that Manly were winning in all areas of the game – why would Stewart risk the suspension?

This will captivate the media cycle this week and beyond if suspensions play a part in each teams demise. Storms performance on Friday night means they cannot win the flag – and without Blair – lay the odds for as much as you can get. Manly have also dealt themselves a big blow – watch them drift as well depending on the suspensions.

The Final 8 has been decided bar a Rabbits win over the Knights by more than 34 points.

In early July and after Round 17 – Snoop-Poop made some finals predictions – they’re again posted below:

  1. Storm – 42
  2. Dragons – 41
  3. Broncos – 40
  4. SeaEagles – 38
  5. Cowboys – 32
  6. Panthers – 30
  7. Warriors – 30
  8. Knights – 28
  9. Sharks –
  10. Bulldogs
  11. Raiders –
  12. Tigers –
  13. Rabbitohs
  14. Roosters
  15. Eels
  16. Titans –

The top eight with a round to play are:

  1. Storm – 42 – play Titans at home
  2. Sea Eagles – 40 – play Broncos away
  3. Broncos – 38 – plays Manly at home
  4. Tigers – 32 – including their victory over the Titans on Monday night – play Sharks away
  5. Cowboys – 32 play Warriors away
  6. Dragons – 31 – play Penrith at home
  7. Warriors – 30 – play Cowboys at home
  8. Knights – 26 – play Souths at home

Positions 1,2 and 3 cannot change – 4th through to 8th are all up for grabs.  Souths and Knights play eachother to decide who makes the eight.  Bulldogs have to win by 73 points and then add whatever margin Souths beat Newcastle on top of that. If Dragons win and the Cowboys lose – then they finish 4th and there are some other permutations as well.

The betting market I would frame is as follows:

  • 2/1 – Sea Eagles –
  • 3/1 – Broncos – Tigers
  • 4/1 – Storm – Dragons
  • 10/1 – Warriors
  • 12/1 – Souths if they make the eight –
  • 20/1 – Cowboys
  • 50/1 – for the Knights if they make the 8

The matchups in week one of Finals should be:

  • Storm (home) v Knights or Souths …. Storm to advance if Knights – Storm and Souths to advance if Souths …
  • Manly (home) v Cowboys … Manly to advance
  • Broncos (home) v Warriors … Broncos to advance
  • Tigers (home) v Dragons … both to advance

Eliminated – Knights or Cowboys – and Warriors …

Remaining Teams in order –

Storm – Manly – Broncos – Dragons – Souths – Tigers – if Souths make 8 and beat Storm then Storm get relegated below Souths …

Matchups for Week 2 of FInals –

  • Broncos v Tigers …
  • Dragons v Souths …

From there – too hard to call.
