Re: Cotric, Wighton, Papalii selected for Origin

I think Finucane will start in the middle with the Newcastle prop on the bench come game night.

Re: Are we premiership contenders?

I think we can 100% win the comp if we keep improving over the last half of the season. If full strength (minus BJ) we can beat any of the sides. Our Achilles heal is our discipline - teams are gonna try and play like the Sharks did on Thursday against us so we get frustrated. If we keep that in che...

Re: 2019 Rd 14 V Sharks: Game Day

That was a dead set disgraceful performance by the refs tonight. The Bateman penalty and CNK penalty were 100% wrong.

Lucky we started so strong. The Sharks had 15 on the field tonight after the 30th minute.

The Walker one is definitely the lesser of the two McGuire incidents. The Munster one was deplorable and the equal of Young.

Agreed. I wouldn't trade Bateman for any forward. He does so much for our team.

No way we keep the Tigers to zero if Williams is in the side. Keeping the Tigers to nil had little to do with who our halfback was and everything to do with our attitude as a team. Whitehead and Bateman absolutely control their inside and outside men when defending on each edge. If any one factor i...

While it sucks Young will miss 5 weeks compared to the soft decision to fine McGuire I have to say I think it is a positive for our club that he has taken the early guilty plea.

Re: 2019 Rd 12 V Bulldogs: Game Day

If the NRL decide an act like Young's deserves 5 weeks I will support that. But it was nowhere near as bad as the McGuire one on Munster earlier this year and all he got was a fine. What is the explaination for that inconsistency?

This moment described the game for me as a spectacle;

54th minute, Warren Smith in commentary "Sutton tackled on the 5th (it was Young). Williams kicks, he and Sezer are doing a great job controlling the game". Haha. Our halves were a solid 5/10 at best.

He was also killing it at #13. You put the players in the spots that best suit the team overall.

I'm not sure he is the best halfback for Queensland though. He hasn't exactly shone at that level.
He struggled when the superstars had ownership of the team for sure. But he was outstanding in Game 3 last year.
