Re: 2019 Rd 1 V Titans: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

Stoked Horsburgh has been named. Let's hope he gets more than 5 mins game time! Only change id have made is to put Guler ahead of Sutton. Appreciate sentiments that Gulers trial form wasnt that great but neither was suttons imo. I just hope it doesnt adversely affect his confidence.. hold on, peris...

Re: 2019 Rd 1 V Titans: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

Yeah Guler is the only big surprise, strange he could've fallen that far out of favour to not even be on the list. The rest of it is as expected and looks about as good as it can be. No Oldfield is a big blow but let's hope BS is not BS. I wonder if this is Sticky making a statement early. Guler lo...

Canterbury Bulldogs poach Canberra Raiders wrestling coach on eve of NRL season

Wrestling is part of the game. Glad we got rid of Babic, he did nothing for our defense over the last 3 years. What I don’t get though, why he wasn’t sacked after our in-depth season review? All defensive coaches and staff should have been the focus to shuffle around or remove Sent from my iPhone us...

Re: 2019 Rd 1 V Titans: Teams and Previews

He’s never had a chance GE. I feel like he’s been a bit hard done by so far in his time at the club. He’s played some good NRL games for the warriors in the past, some great international games for Tonga, and he’s got youth on his side... what’s not to like?? It's a real shame somebody selected him...

Our issue is the same as it has been for the past two seasons.

We need players capable of dominant tackles and winning the ruck in the midd...

Innocent or guilty, I just don’t understand why they arn’t immediately stood down with full pay due to putting the game in disrepute.

Players should not be putting themselves in situations where things like this can happen.

That’s a joke. There is just so many things wrong with that, basically it tells clubs you have no responsibility to the fans, the game or the community when you sign and manage players on your roster.

This first game against the Titans is going to be harder than we all think. Titans are on the up, they have a good middle that can match us no worries and our edge defence is still struggling which the will target.

I think it's a decent trial so far. I don't see anything to panic about, the only issue I definitely see is our outside back depth.
