Re: 2021 Rd 10 V Bulldogs: Teams and Previews

This is pretty accurate, except the part regarding Stuart being able to fix it. He has no clue. 9-13 this year for us.

Re: Jack Wighton

He played well against Souths but I agree- compared to last year he's off. Tried hard yesterday but couldn't deliver the killer blows like Ponga.

Re: 2021 Rd 9 V Knights: Game Day

Papalli and Tapine have been the least of our problems... When motivated, both are a cut above everyone in our pack. The team should feel bad for Papa after the effort he put into this game. In terms of effort, I don't think you need to worry about Papa, Tapine, Sutton, Young, Whitehead, Starling f...

Re: CHN

Don't think his defence is up to standard. I said so during the game. Agree with Green Machine's comments above but not willing to make an early judgment yet as I still remember he won on his own at the Bulldogs (v Souths) and for Penrith (against us).

Re: 2021 Rd 10 V Bulldogs: Teams and Previews

Dogs will beat us. It will be hot in Brisbane. We lack the conditioning. Cotric 2-3 tries.

Dogs gave us a run last year and were leading at half time, and only lost by 2 the year before.

Even the faithful will be calling for Ricky's head next week.

Re: The solution

Great player, one of my favourites with his long pass and kicking game, I actually think underrated and better than the modern halves like Cronk, Cleary, and DCE, but hopeless coach.

Re: 2021 Rd 9 V Knights: Game Day

Storm look scary - put on 50 against Souths without Papenhuyzen (Souths also had a lot of players missing). But they amaze me with their quality to have good seasons without a rebuild. I was waiting for them to fall when Cronk left, Slater retired, and this year, Smith, Suli V and Tino not there. St...

Ricky doesn't know the answer. Instead of blaming the refs, it's luck this time that we didn't win - the ball not bouncing up for GWilliams to score on the Papa and Rapa kicks. And the fact that we don't have anything going for us. Denies there's anything in the camp when asked by a journalist it lo...
