Re: Canberra Raiders forward Ryan Sutton should be called up to Great Britain squad

Sutton shouldn't be anywhere near the squad at this point. I appreciate he's playing in a better competition, but he wouldn't be in the top ten for English props at the moment. Geez mate, he's been in pretty good form for us. It's hard to fathom 10 better props keeping him out. Burgess x 2, but are...

I think people are writing off Sia Soliola a bit too soon. That mistake has been made before. He was supposedly too old three years ago.
I don't really know, because I'm thousands of miles away, but I reckon Sia's worth whatever he's paid in leadership alone.

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

Do have to say I reckon that’s the weakest list of 34 players I’ve seen in Origin for a loooong time. It’s hard to disagree. Origin last year was a club standard game. Not a lot different this year. There are some very good players in there, but as an England fan, it's only Tedesco that scares me. ...

Tapine on the edge, for me. I get the point about him defending next to Williams, but that's less of an issue with Cotric there, I think.

Bateman in the middle might take a bit of pressure of Papalii in defence - allowing him extra minutes on the field, which is crucial to the team's success.

Re: John Bateman out six to eight weeks with fractured eye socket

A great move by the club.

Having his daughter and family go home for the first time was going to be tough for him and you can imagine the plan was to really throw himself into his rugby - which he then can't do.

Looking out for the players' mental health is a really good thing.

I'd really like to see Williams and Wighton play first and second receiver, rather than left and right.
