Re: 2022 New halfback?

Ok few will agree with me but the much maligned Chris Sandow wants to return to NRL? I would take him, unfairly blamed for any Parra loss, he was one of my favourite attacking players, magic on his day... And an out and out 7. Shouldn't cost too much either... Between him, Sammy and Schneider there...

Re: 2021 Rd 10 V Bulldogs: Game Day

I really hope we use the upcoming bye to work on our attacking and defensive structures. Jack will be our only SOO rep with Papa suspended (likely we won't roll the dice and fight).

Re: This is not rugby league

Just something else for Rick to bleat about rather than face hard questions about his tenure and the direction of the team. No one in the media has the guts to throw him anything but a softball on that front. However, it is comical the NRL makes such radical changes in the middle of a competiton (no...

Re: 2021 Rd 10 V Bulldogs: Game Day

Despite playing in their traditional blue and white, I’ve no doubt Rick will give credit to the Bulldogs in the presser for just being able to bleed that bit more green than us.

That and the bounce of the ball are likely the only reasons they can beat us today.

I don’t think that tackle should be legal. But by the rules isn’t it? As long as he doesn’t go below the knee? Who cares about the rule book?

There is zero ticker being shown by the playing group, and the coach is finally exposed as the fraud he is (it’s only taken 2 decades).

Re: 2021 Rd 10 V Bulldogs: Game Day

Given how amateur our structured play looks, and how unathletic and non-threatening our outside backs and edges look - we really should be trying for the offload on nearly every play.

Re: 2022 New halfback?

Haven’t seen Fogarty play too many bad games... he’s one of those late bloomer types that will probably never get him the recognition or wraps he deserves. I’d be ok with offering slight overs on a nice 3 year deal, to give some stability to our halves pairing over that period.
