Re: 2019 Preliminary Final V Rabbitohs: Teams and Previews

I think they’re nailing it. For too long NRL has rewarded the teams that can cheat best with success. Don’t like being sin binned? Play by the rules. It’s not hard. Nailed it. Teams have been rewarded for cynical professional fouls in the past, which has impacted the spectacle. I'm all for the sin ...

Re: Is it time for Canberra Raiders fans to forgive Cronulla Sharks star Josh Dugan?

You have to wonder where Dugan will find himself if indeed he's on the move, maybe back at the Dragons? Parra? The bulldogs would actually make a lot of sense. He could play fullback again, which is his best position... He's still a pretty good player on his day. Someone will take a punt on him. CN...

PS... I can understand that members feel entitled to be looked after. Indeed they should feel entitled to be looked after.

We host our first ever preliminary final and suddenly a sense of entitlement begins to creep into the fan base. I'm not a ticketed member.

Re: 2019 Rd 25 V Warriors: Game Day

We're all wrong occasionally PigRick. You've made several predictions that we wouldn't lose another game this season that I'm sure you'd also be going back and quoting if they were correct.

We should be aiming to compete for a Premiership the next two years. That means you retain the better player, not the younger one.
