Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2019

Flanagan to Chooks. Could have been useful It’s on a development promise that he can learn from Cronk before taking over his position. So I don’t think other clubs were really in with a shot. Mind you, Roosters will dump Flanagan the second a better half comes on the market who considers the Rooste...

Re: Viking Clap - Mark II - Viking Row

I like the idea. Not sure how you pull it off through. Ive always wanted to try the NBA/ NFL 'defense' chant. Somehow incorporating the Shield wall. No clue how though.

Re: 2019 State of Origin II: Queensland V New South Wales

Strange selections with all the backrowers for NSW, you would think Trbojevic and or Frizzell will likely play quite a bit of prop to make use of the likes of Graham, Sims and Murray etc, But having said that the QLD bench isn't exactly that threatening, Mbye, Glasby and Wallace wouldn't scare to m...

Re: Jarrod Croker

Sterling put Croker and Funicane in the same basket over the weekend, as 2 of the most unlucky non Blues in recent years. You can tick 1 more off that list. I think Croker regularly comes up in discussions, however, he is a left sided player, and that has always been the stronger side talent wise. I...

I just realised that there is only 1 centre playing Origin in game 2. A fullback and 2 x 5/8s have got the nod over every other eligible/healthy centre in the game.
...and the best centre in the game just got dropped.
That speaks more about the game itself more than the position IMO.

Re: The Cricket Thread

MM vs Stoinis: As a bat, I have more faith in Stoinis, and he has produced at this level. Both can clear the pickets though. As a bowler, I think Marsh is more accomplished. Stoinis is more a 'very capable parttimer' as opposed to a genuine allrounder IMO. They are both good catchers, and good in th...

Re: Croker's kicking

His GKing was the difference last night. 5 from 5 vs SJs 2 from 4. Yep. His kicking won us the game. If he misses even one - like that one from the sideline where he's struggled a bit this year - we lose. I didn't fancy our chances in Golden Point!

Imagine if he was kicking well though... probably would've kicked 10 from 5 last year.

The only reason I can think he's got Sutton on the bench is to try and balance the side out (I don't agree with it). Braden Hamlin-Uele will be hard to stop.

1. Really tough, but Bateman. Try, 120m odd plus 30 odd tackles.
