Re: 2019 Rd 2 V Storm: Teams and Previews

On the Guler issue- it’s up to him to force his way in now. In the first month or two Ricky faced the risk of a prop bench rotation with 3 nrl games between them if he picked Guler, Sutton &Horsburg... Too much risk when we have a known quantity of reliable service here in Lui. I agree Guler is a g...

Re: 2019 Rd 2 V Storm: Teams and Previews

To me the issue of splitting the rotation comes down to styles, not names. I saw the value in trying Boyd and Paulo together but it was clear early it didnt work because when they came off, you got rolled up. To me you want the big physical enforcers paired with the foot speed/high energy guys. And...

Re: Worst spine in the competition

Actually what was I thinking the knights have Mason Lino in reserve grade. Just move Ponga back to fullback and play Lino at 5/8. There's some quality off contract and moving into first grade in 2020. Caleb Aekins and Ryan Papenhuyzen would be good fullbacks for any club. Alexander Brimson, Jake Cl...

Re: Something awry with NRL's salary cap compensation

It will be very interesting to watch what happens when 1 of the glamour clubs loses a star player during a test match. Imagine sidemouth if S Burgess does a acl or Gould if Cleary is out for the season in the 1st soo. Pretty sure we will be hearing a very different song.

It's because gould bangs on about how Jack would be a origin player if he was a centre Good lesson is not to listen to commentators when they talk about Raiders players, remember them talking up McCrone for origin :lol: Yes indeed. Andrew johns stated it many times. Put down the glass pipe joey
