Not a bad game. Millie Boyle has quite the motor on her. I can understand a few clubs chasing her.

Re: A new Canberra Stadium?

I suspect it's a subscriber article so I'm not reading it. The answer is he doesn't care at all about any sport except AFL.

Interesting decision to appoint John Barrilaro to a plum gig in NY. Didn't he resign because of some dodgy stuff?

If my comprehension of that is correct I am really perturbed. If Burton wants to move on my bet it is to a big/successful club. That is all fair enough but I'd be willing to punt that the umpteen Penrith selections and dumping of Addo-Carr as soon as he went to a small club played a part. Suali and...

Haha, poor Nicholls for the kiwis. Hits a nice drive which ricochets off his batting partner's bat and somehow chips it perfectly to mid-on.

I thought Tumeth had a pretty solid game too. Really locked up that right edge and some good, tough carries. Congratulations to the Raiders players. Mooney and Asamoa played really strong. Morkos also with some good carries but got beaten a few times in defence, maybe getting caught on his heels/ pl...

Blues half is playing well, as are the Raiders boys - Morkos got beaten on the outside at least twice though. Don't mind the look of the Maroons hooker too.

Re: Coaching issues

It's usually always a multitude of factors when things aren't going well but we don't look as fit as some other teams and it's been a fairly consistent theme in the past 25 - 30 years, aside from a few random seasons. While other teams are powering through the second half we're crumbling, or the mor...

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2022

He's struggled to get game time at the Titans, who were very ordinary. But then in contract year his form improved. Now he can't crack a very ordinary Tigers team. Is he a lazy trainer, poor attitude? He is certainly gifted enough when he gives a ****.

Re: 2022 State of Origin II: Blues V Maroons

Very odd for anyone to have a crack at the Trbojevic pick. He's the best middle defender in the game and that's why he's there. Not having good defenders there is why they lost game 1. Who is taking those tough carries though? One prop on the bench and one on the starting line up. I think NSW was j...

With two minutes to go to half time, a short drop out was a ridiculous decision. Absolutely ridiculous. I'd like to know who it actually was who decided that was a good idea.
Agreed, it was a dumb play.

Re: A new Canberra Stadium?

Why would investors base their business model on revenue from 11 home games a year? While takings from those 11 days would be pretty damn good it's hardly something to bankroll your business. Mind you I'm not a business owner though.
