Re: 2021 Rd 9 V Knights: Game Day

Really don't get the strategy about taking the two when we already have two. We are looking pretty good in attack. Need to keep the pressure on.

Re: Broncos considering shock play for Raiders star Josh Hodgson

I'm going to say it. Hodgson was a brilliant recruit and arguably the best hooker we have had since Walters. But the game has changed and I feel like now that we have two halves who have shown the ability to control and run the game, Hodgo has not adapted. While he can undoubtedly still produce mome...

Croker was deadset just about crying on the Fox interview. Tough to watch. You can see he is hurting and realises he doesn't have it at the moment.

For those banging about that it's madness we don't have a back on the bench, let's not pretend that what we are doing is groundbreaking. Out of this week's 16 named teams, only 5 are carrying a specialist back on the bench. It's really not that common at all. 11 other teams would have been in the sa...

Re: 2020 Rd 5 V Panthers: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

Nah I like Ricky's tactic of starting with our best pack. The first 20-30 will be key. If they are on with their attack they could easily score 3-4 tries which might be too hard to come back from. Start with Papa, Taps and Sutto. Sia (to a lesser extent), James and Havili can still provide big punch...

Re: 2020 Rd 3 V Warriors: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

Personally I would've kept Lui over Sia, but I am over the moon that Kris gets to keep a spot on the bench. I think if given the opportunity for a short stint in the forwards he could kill it. He has the size and footwork to be a bit of a dangerman.

Re: 2020 Rd 3 V Warriors: Teams and Previews

I'm re-thinking my idea of CHN on the bench. I don't think we need an edge on the bench. We need 3 middles. The 2 props and Tapine always get interchanged after 20-25 minutes. Young and Whitehead play 80 and incase of injury, Kris can play on the edge due to his size. IMO the best bench would be: 14...
