Re: Are we premiership contenders?

If you look back over the past 10 years there has always been at least two teams who are considered a cut above the rest and this year is no different. I’m more talking about the fact that anyone in the top 7 right now could go deep into the finals. Eighth place could be fought out by teams like the...

Re: Are we premiership contenders?

The competition is so close this year that the Storm are a Cameron Smith injury away from being a bottom 8 team. We are a Jack Wighton ‘Jarryd Hayne’ purple patch of form from being a top 2 team. It’s impossible to pick who will win it this year, so far out from the finals. Regardless where we finis...

Re: Blake Austin signs with Warrington Wolves

Campo single-handedly ripped teams apart for weeks on end, taking us on a huge run to the semi finals. You can’t compare a half-a-season 5/8 in Wighton to what Campese did. If Campo was playing for a Sydney club during that run, his purple patch would be spoken about in the same breath as Jarryd Hay...

Re: 2019 Rd 14 V Sharks: Game Day

Interesting that Stick pretty much put a line through Rapana and Tapine playing for NZ because they are wounded and club comes first. Good move too I say.

Re: 2019 State of Origin I: Queensland V New South Wales

I’ll have to watch it more closely again but I can’t recall the Oates try being scored due to Cotric coming in. Wasn’t Morris about 15 metres in field leaving Cotric to defend a 3 on 1 on his own which he very nearly did?

We’ve had worse full-strength teams than this in the past 15 years that’s for sure.

Hard not to be proud of the boys after that. Every single player can walk off the field and know they gave it everything. They matched it with the benchmark of the comp.

Don’t think this is the type of game that Stuart brings an outside back on for. We are missing Papa. When he comes back on we need to start going to the right on the back of his runs.

I'm not sure bringing Kris onto a wing so Simonssen can float is such a great idea. It's a lot of change to an already disrupted edge. If it happens, Ricky must see a pure weapon in Simonnsen, It's probably the Rugby 7s background. He's used to running the ball in broken play and just trying to exp...
