Re: 2019 Rd 10 V Rabbitohs: Game Day

I absolutely loved the way we played our footy tonight. Key players out and everyone ripped in 100%. We’ve made it through the hard part of the draw and need to make it count over the next 4-5 weeks and if we can reproduce that effort we will win most of them. I am hoping that this experience at th...

Re: 2019 Rd 9 V Roosters: Game Day

Taking the two was the wrong thing to do. I thought it a very strange call. Then the mistake to compound it. Making the error (and in the Manly game) is the bigger issue. You can't play dumb football against the better teams. I think Sezer needs to come back in to tighten up our defence. We can't k...

No way he made 145 meters that game. He played ok but that will get corrected in the review. Aren't these the 'official' stats? (bizarre given they are not the NRL website or app stats). They indicate 101m, which seems about right https://mc.championdata.com/nrl/?fbclid=IwAR1oZ34T3xF4MOIeTRde9SH6es...

NRL Physio is saying 4-10 weeks, depending on if he needs surgery or not.
Can’t we just use the other Bateman for spare parts and swap out his eye socket?

Re: 2019 Rd 6 V Broncos: Game Day

I think the only thing stopping us being premiership contenders at present is there are still a lot of dumb decisions. Even if we eliminated all of that, we're still very limited in the red zone, we have Hodgson who's decision making can be shakey, and then 2 (3) halves and a fullback who arent cre...

Re: 2019 Rd 4 V Cowboys: Game Day

Re: Matt's Match-ups 2019

I actually agree with Matt. Cotric hasn't been himself this year. Usually makes no errors, strong in defence, countless strong runs and tackle breaks. He's been a bit like Whitehead and Tapine. Very flat. He was ok week 1, setting up 1 of the 3 tries in the monsoon. He looked like he lacked energy ...

that was fun. CNK seemed to grow in confidence under the high ball as the game wore on. If he turns out to be the real deal we are a legit side. Sutton perhaps the only one that didn't impress me greatly, but he wasn't bad either.
