Round 4
Townsville Blackhawks

Tom Opacic (73 mins, 13 runs, 132m, 37 post contact, 9 tackles, 0 missed, 1 error, 1 sin bin)
Justin O'Neill (9 runs, 101m, 31 post contact, 3 tackle breaks, 14 tackles, 3 missed, 1 ineffective, 1 error)
Tom Gilbert (55 mins, 14 runs, 152m, 52 post contact, 2 tackle breaks, 33 tackles, 0 missed, 1 penalty conceded)
Sam Murphy (41 mins, 3 runs, 4m, 1 offload, 19 tackles, 2 missed, 1 ineffective, 1 error)

Gilbert will play first grade this year. Good performance by Opacic, apart from getting binned.
Gilbert was really good, the way our forwards have been playing he would have to be in the mix.

Cant really blame Opacic for his sin bin in some respects. Just saw his team mate hit with a dog shot and retaliated. Did a great tackle late on the Burliegh lock, almost broke him in half!

Opacic has been charged with grade 1 striking. Interestingly MPW copped a charge for 'detrimental conduct', whatever that is

Whatever that is? There's a video of it :) . I think it's officially defined in the NRL Law Book as: "being an antagonistic, weasley wanker". If I were coach, I'd sit him in the stand for a fortnight.

I think we could do worse than have a look at Purcell from Ipswich. He is a bit of a cross between a young Greg Inglis and Addo-Carr.

Did MPW steal your girl? Have noticed a personal vendetta from you towards him.

Then I suggest you lift your evidence threshold, this isn't the sort of conclusion one should draw from the one opinion, about the one incident, expressed consistently, three times.
I say he behaved like an antagonistic, weasley wanker, not because he stole my girl, but because he behaved like an antagonistic, weasley wanker.
He stole my girl because he's younger, fitter, better looking and richer than I am.
Get it right.

That’s a harsh burn but he did walk right into it.

Some nice stats there. Looks like Cotter is doing great after such a long time away.

Does Q Cup track minutes played? Would be interested to see how much game time Cotter is getting

Yeah, they don't have the minutes up for last night's game yet though. Cotter's played 50, 33, 35 and 43 this year, so about 40 mins per game.
