Re: NRL calls on fans to voice their opinion

I think if they could implement a change it would be reduce interchange to 6. Keep 4 interchange players but allow teams to have a fresh reserve to replace players lost to acts of foul play so they still have 17 fit men and not 16.

Re: Jack Wighton turns down Raiders option to go on open market for 2021

I am happy to upgrade Wighton (and Bateman for that matter) but I want the club to make it clear that it is a two way street. You want an upgrade? Sure - give us a long term commitment and sign until 2024. Both parties get something then. Also, the coverage of this is laughable. I saw a video on Fox...

Re: 2019 Grand Final V Roosters: Game Day

Have the NRL released the 4 camera angles that Annesley referenced when concluding he felt the call to reverse the 6 again was the correct decision? I have no idea whether it hit Tedesco or not, I have only seen the angle shown during the telecast. And as I said, that doesn't show me anything conclu...

If you do, don't watch the 60th minute of the game. Not blaming Leilua, but him not getting a pass off there is the moment that still hurts the most from Sunday night.

I didn’t realise at the game CNK threw the pass to Leilua to give him a 2 on 1. I think he is really going to improve next year, he seems to like the right side, which works well for our balance. That ball from CNK was an absolute pearler. Shame Joey made the wrong call there. Rapana did not look h...

I would be more than happy to commit more money to John Bateman. He deserves every cent. However I believe if we do so it should be on the proviso he commits longer term to us. Both parties win in that scenario.
