Re: Oldfield

Love Oldy. I didn't think he went too bad, actually. But he is indeed more a winger than a centre, and that's fine.

Croker has put in two very good games the last two weeks. Great to see and long may it last.

Doesn’t convince me the inherent defensive flaw in his game won’t cost us a final but I’m pleased to see his current vein of form.
It didn't cost us the last time we played finals. It won't this time.

How about that hit on the Tigers line by Papali in the second half. Amazing to watch.

Which one? He did a few that were excellent.

I also especially enjoyed Oldy shooting through the line at such speed he made two of the Tigers faceplant each other.

Re: 2019 Rd 18 V Tigers: Game Day

I wanna also throw in a shout-out for Dunamis Lui. The guy has copped a veritable flogging on here for the past few years but he's worked hard and diligently and he's become a very dangerous forward. Watching him and Papa hunt together is enormous fun. He may have been a fill-in once but he's defini...

Surprised to see that Croker's goalkicking has dropped below 75% and we're currently fourth last for conversion percentage in the NRL. Defend him all you want but he's definitely regressed further this season, after a slight drop last year. At the moment there's eight kickers above 80% who are thei...

I honestly can't remember a season quite like this one. I've been wrestling with my excitement since pretty much round one, trying to keep it from spinning out of control...and the closer to finals we get the more I'm losing that fight.

Re: Nick Cotric takes early plea, suspended three weeks

I think it's sensible not to fight it, purely for PR. It's a bad look to fight, it's only three weeks, Cotric will be back in plenty of time for finals.

No need to antagonise the NRL this close to finals. Save our breath for when we really need it - ala Jack and the bogus shoulder charge in 2016.

If people are saying that Jarrod Croker is not a rep quality centre and that Sezer is crap, then yes, they'd be totally right.

Not sure why the truth hurts people so much.
Imagine outing yourself like this after a game where Sezer played very well and Croker broke two separate records. :roflmao

Re: The Cricket Thread

I'm absolutely filthy with England "winning" and it makes the sport look like a joke.

Both teams scored the same amount of runs, but New Zealand took more wickets. In absolutely no way, shape or form did England outplay New Zealand, but somehow England go home with the trophy. Absolute bulldust.
