So I've woken up in an alternative universe where Paul Martin is discussed in a conversation about our best ever wingers.

Re: This is not rugby league

I absolutely agree with rugby league administration on the crack down. It is ridiculous to cry poor over tackles that hit people in the head as a first contact. Players should be sin binned or sent from the field. Players can tackle without hitting the head. The NRL needs to find a way to reward leg...

Re: 2021 Rd 9 V Knights: Teams and Previews

Is there any issue with playing Bailey at fullback in attack so he can roam AKA Ryan Sonic the Hedgehog Pappyuenhaouseian and let Caleb or Charnze run defence? It's unconventional but it's worth trying. He has speed to burn, and needs to be active. It may also open up the halves who for the love of...

Re: 2021 Rd 9 V Knights: Teams and Previews

Problem I'm seeing with Starling is that you're taking away so much of his effectiveness by not having a someone with speed trail through the ruck with him. It's a massive waste playing him without one. Honestly could've had 2-3 tries last night from the runs he made last night that amounted to not...

Great news.

Was very worried about the amount of cash and time being offered where I'm very certain he hasn't improved since he entered first grade.

A bit one dimensional and too big a contract for what he was bringing to the team..
