Well, the NRL season has already claimed its first casualty with Australian winger and Queensland Origin player Yow Yeh suffering a horrendous broken ankle in the 4th round clash with the Rabbitohs.Brisbane trailed 12-0 when Yow Yeh contested a kick with Rabbitohs winger Dylan Farrell, falling and landing awkwardly,causing serious damage to his ankle.It is not known yet whether he will be out for the 2012 season.
Although the Rabbitohs were solid in the first 35 minutes of the games, errors and sloppy play led to Brisbane taking the lead in a 20-12 win in front of nearly 16000 fans.
One of the NRL premiership favourites for 2012 are having a very shaky start to their season.The Wests Tigers were trounced 30-16 by an inform Raiders, led by skipper Terry Campese.Campese was on fire in front of a Wests home crowd at Campbelltown Stadium on Monday night outplaying his counterpart five-eighth Benji Marshall in a class display.Tries by Jarrod Croker,Sam Mataora,Campese,and Josh McCrone led to their first win against Wests since the joint venture.Sloppy play and missed tackles ruled the Wests Tigers game.They will need to rethink their game plan this week when they come up against the Rabbitohs, and again they will be without Robbie Farah as he has one week remaining on his suspension.Both teams will be out to prove themselves this week with both having shocking starts to the season and both desperately needing a win under their belts to remain in contention for this season.

Well, the footy season is underway for 2012.There is much excitement in the office and at home with a few devoted Dragons fans.Not my cup of tea with all the bone-crunching tackles and over zealous cuddles that occur on the field.However apparently this is shaping up to be a great season with 7 new coaches and a few of the big name players having switched clubs.Nothing like giving the pot a bit of a stir.
The Dragons were abysmal against the inform Bulldogs on Saturday night at ANZ stadium.There was no fire as Josh Morris destroyed the Dragons, including his brother, in a 30-4 whitewash.The Bulldogs defence far too strong for a illdisciplined St George side.
The Titans were overun in front of 11378 fans in a 24-12 loss against the Raiders.The Raiders surged to a 12-0 lead by the 20th min but the Titans fought back levelling the scores just before half-time.The Raiders had all the possession in the second half with some brilliant defence and stole the lead back in the 52nd minute when McCrone took them to a 18-12 advantage.Although the Raiders were denied 2 tries in the closing minutes of the game, this probably would not have changed the result , although it did cost them any chance to level the scores.

Tonights game Parramatta against the New Zealand warriors should be a great game.Jarroyd Hayne is back but Hindmarsh will miss the game tonight recovering from a nasty virus.
