It was great to have rugby league back in action over the weekend but what a nightmare it was for all us tipsters out there. I wont admit to how many I got correct but I can confirm that I got more wrong than right.

The Bulldogs started off the season against the Cowboys and although we didnt get the win I think it was a pretty close game. We had our opportunities but Im going to give the Cowboys a wrap, their defensive line constantly came up very quick on us and that applied a lot of pressure to our play. We struggled with that a little bit and it forced us into panic mode. Johnathan Thurston again showed that he is all class and I think he is definitely the best player in the world at the moment.

Id like to congratulate David Klemmer on making his NRL debut and also Tony Williams and Drury Low who made their Bulldogs NRL debut. Hopefully it is the first of many for all three of them.

For me Josh Morris looked very dangerous with the ball in hand and it was great to see Steve Turner back out on the field as well.

Im really looking forward to the match against the Eels on Thursday. Ricky Stuart has got them off to an ideal start and theyll be hoping that form can continue. Im sure the guys will be up for this one and it should be a fantastic clash which will continue the great rivalry that the Bulldogs and Eels have. It would be great if we could get as many Members and fans there as we can in their blue and white so we can show our support for the side. Members should remember that this match is part of their package and will be able to get you into ANZ Stadium on Thursday night.

From the other matches I thought the Sharks showed good passion and that got them the result on the weekend after what was a tough week for the Club. I mentioned the Eels but whilst people were talking about the Hayne Plane I think Chris Sandow deserves plenty of credit, he took on the line and set up three of their tries. The Storm were too classy for the Dragons at home, I like the look of the Panthers and especially Lachlan Coote in the number six jersey and in the season opener. All I can say is WOW in relation to Greg Inglis, he is the front runner for player of the year in my book.

Until next time,

Terry Lamb
