Re: 2022 Rd 23 V Knights: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

I pretty much never bet on Canberra.

Re: Ryan Sutton signs three year deal with Bulldogs from 2023

He's been a good servant. I hope he goes well in the future. No nonsense and always put in. Not irreplaceable but his attitude and durability will be missed.

Re: 2022 Rd 23 V Knights: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

My memory might be failing me. But wasn't that Easts without essentially their entire starting pack? And severe season ending injuries having occurred elsewhere and in that game as well? And Souths without Reynolds just aren't the same, despite a few wool pulls recently. Roosters are just about full...

Re: 2022 Rd 23 V Knights: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

With Souths losing tonight, there is the possibility they will lose their remaining matches, against Cowboys and Roosters, meaning we will make the 8 if we win all our matches. A big if. Careful Hong Kong Raider, i made that mere suggestion last week and the usual suspects all crawled out from unde...

Re: 2022 Rd 22 V Dragons: Game Day

The suggestion of picking Hopoate over Cotric is absolutely insane. Hopoate has stepped up and had a dig but let's be serious here. Cotric seems to have plateaued and isn’t anywhere near a top tear winger in the NRL. Hoppa and Schiller both may have more improvements in their games. You can not tel...

Cotric certainly needs to work on his game this offseason and develop some secondary skills. Sorry to say, but he’s in declin...

Re: 2022 Rd 22 V Dragons: Game Day

There were countless stupid plays. But the set down their end when up by 6 with about 7 to go is possibly the worst halfback play I have ever seen. There were 5 gimme opportunities to kick a field goal. Nope, order 5 hit ups and then bomb to the in goal to give them a 20 tap.

That's arguable. The Roosters are no chance of missing the 8 imo.

It's mainly Souths, and now Brisbane, who Canberra are likely to dislodge, if anyone, for mine.
