Re: POLL: Strongest 2020 line up: Props

Hard disagree... losing all three given our "overstacked" situation is built around Papalii who might be gone sooner than we all think, Lui who is already 31, James who will be 30 this year coming off 2 years lay off and back to back ACL's, and Sia who is THIRTY FOUR... mother mary! I know...

Re: NFL Thread

Interesting hires so far... some thoughts the jags is probably the one i like least, but that team probably needs someone like Meyer... we'll see if his culture/programme building skills can translate to the next level. But if it does, Meyer, with Lawrence could be a stunningly great combination and...

I've got three absolute musts in the front row (Tapine is a middle also and is a lock at... well lock): Papalii,Guler, Young Those are IMO the best three middles in our team... Paps is Paps.

Re: POLL: Strongest 2020 line up: Second rowers

Crokes was looked at as a poor defender in a couple of ordinary sides early on in his career. But he was poor and then he improved. There's no ignoring the baths he used to get from Hurrel- that's what kept him out of rep sides. But he put all that away the last few years and the fan base saw that....

Re: Canberra Raiders hooker Tom Starling charged with assaulting police

You really have to wonder about the person leading the PP here, same as the Scott case. Either someone isn't giving them the full brief or they are dreaming rainbows. In both cases the evidence seems to be very thin to continue the charges. If they keep this up we may need to declare them as 3rd pa...
