Around The Tweets: NRL Round 6

From the opening of the brand-spanking new Stadium in Western Sydney, the fall of the Bronco empire and the epic Grand Final rematch – NRL Round six had it all!

There was plenty to talk about as Around The Tweets takes in the best of Twitter from a big Easter weekend of Rugby League.

Eels 51 def. Tigers 6

Parramatta opened Bankwest Stadium in style thrashing by their “co-tenant” the Wests Tigers.

There was a lot of love for their shiny new digs.

She was a rough day for Anthony the Blue Wiggle. (Why is he still a Wiggle when all the other originals have left?)

But you get the feeling Bankwest Stadium is going to be a hit with everyone concerned.

Even the media can’t get enough of the coconut water in the press box. 

SUNDAY ARVO:
Raiders 26 def. Broncos 22

The Broncos had their chance to come back but the Raiders got the job done.

To commemorate, we present to you another edition of Brisbane Broncos fans getting furious on Twitter.

SUNDAY ARVO:
Titans 38 def. Knights 14

HOW ABOUT THOSE MIGHTY NEDS GOLD COAST TITANS!?! TWO IN A ROW AND ONWARDS TO THE PROMISED LAND THAT’S WHAT.

Playing on Easter Sunday is always a tough task…just ask Vossy. 

I’d happily chip in to make it happen.

Book your September holidays now Knights fans.

But seriously, how ’bout those Neds Gold Coast Titans? She’s good times at Robina right now.

SATURDAY NIGHT
Dragons 12 def. Manly 10 

Questionable use of the Bunker, questionable referring – a perfect Twitter storm for Rugby League fans during the Red V’s thrilling win over the Sea Eagles on Saturday night. 

Ahh, how as that Brad Parker trip allowed to even be looked at by the Bunker?

Bunker Banter ruled Twitter during this match. It wasn’t the first time and I get the feeling, it won’t be the last.

If only you could listen to big Des having a little chat to the refs.

But prior to the game, this was still the standout moment of the night.

But at the end of the day, it’s all about the fans. 

SATURDAY ARVO
Warriors 10 def by. Cowboys 17 

In his 200th game, Josh McGuire and Micheal Morgan got a much-needed win for the Cowboys on the road in New Zealand. 

The Cowboys needed this win. Really needed it.

Not the best night for the NZ Warriors, a tipsters nightmare.

Thoughts with Veronica’s boyfriend in this testing time of their relationship.

FRIDAY NIGHT:
Storm 20 def.by Roosters 21 

What a game this turned out to be! The Roosters looked like they were going to hand out a serious thrashing to the Storm at half-time but Cameron Smith and friends-led an epic comeback, resulting in Golden Point. 

A field goal from Latrell Mitchell got the job done in a memorable game of Rugby League and there was plenty for Twitter to tweet about.

What an ordinary bloke Cooper Cronk is. Am I right?

Conspiracy theories are in full flight from this INXS fan account. This could tear Rugby League apart if true!

On a positive note, it was a pretty bloody good win for the Easts boys.

This idea could prove a hit.

GOOD FRIDAY ARVO
Bulldogs 6 def by. Souths 14 

The Bunnies grinded out a solid win over the Doggies at ANZ on Good Friday.

Old mate clearly not a fan of Braith’s work.

Not much love for referee Henry Perenara either

As someone who also likes AFL, I can tell you, you’re in for a surprise when it comes to umpiring.

 

THURSDAY NIGHT
Sharks 24 def. Panthers 20 

It was an epic comeback for Cronulla as they came back from 20-6 down to win 24-20.

Full respect to this Panthers fan’s hair-do

And this is a mullet you can set your watch to.

We all know where the PM went after the game to celebrate the Sharkies win!

Hello, darkness, my old friend.
