Re: 2020 Rd 12 V Cowboys: Game Day

Jarrod has had a few balls lost/stripped stepping back to the inside in a try scoring situation. I know he is trying to make himself “small”. But his ball carrying arm lifts and comes away from his body. He doesn’t have good control in that position, something he needs to work on.

Re: Raiders confident of flu jab exemptions for Papalii and Tapine

I really want Papa to play. But if he can't I don't think it would be all that bad for him to rest up. He has done a huge amount of work over the last 6 weeks a rest might be good. It will be tough travel routine this weekend. With around 8 hours of flying on game day.

Re: 2020 Rd 12 V Cowboys: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

I have got to say I like that team. I have been critical of Scott, but if he can somehow become a solution rather than a problem with CNK back that will be a stacked side.

Panthers, Sea Eagles are 2 points behind, Panthers are 5 ahead.

If we win and the Panthers win it buys some breathing space

That is what I think. But the Sea Eagles win and then we beat them next week we are only 1 point away.

Really keen to see how the rookie backs perform. Hopefully 1 or both can look really comfortable so we can lock down the right hand side combination. If Bateman is fit he plays from the bench this week. In the next couple of weeks, with Bateman and CHN it should mean there is cover if a back goes do...

I think it is only fair we pay the Dogs some gate takings. I think 100% of the gate from our round 4 and 6 home games should be adequate.

Just so happens Roosters have Crichton / Radley injured.. There you go. Guaranteed to be at the roosters, wont be going anywhere else. Uncle Nick always gets his man. Uncle Nick will need to get a bigger sombrero then. Better get started on some car dealers providing some "Whole of game" sponsorship.

Does any one know his reported Dogs contract value. I have tried searching but can find anything. If on around $400kish we should be able to pick up most of his contract this year for nothing on the cap.

Re: 'We're turning into soccer': Stuart fumes at players milking penalties

I really think that the Morris decision was probably one of the worst cases of unconscious bias I have ever seen. This is likely what went through the refs head "I didn't see it clearly, but no way Morris could fall over, he is such a good player, he must have been taken out" - penalty Roosters.
