Coronavirus

Cannon-Brookes calling for NSW lockdown and to go for elimination this time. Hard to argue against that line, disappointing we didn’t do it earlier. It’s time politicians started nipping this stuff in the bud. Keeping on letting things run until it gets out of hand enough that everyone can see the p...

Re: Canberra Raiders coach Ricky Stuart calls for NRL to take axe to error-prone bunker

I think this is baby out with the bath water. The bunker should stay, I think it means a hell of a lot more correct decisions than without it. What I would like to see is fewer ex-players in the box. I wonder what would happen if they let ol’ gangers in the box? Phil Gould would be ranting “no no no...

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2020

Agree with all you’ve said except for the optimism for the season. An injury toll like this one, on top of the travel, just has to tell.

If half the team + the support can make a fist of things like they did last night I’ll be stoked. But also very very surprised.

Through green eyes 2020

Assuming the bunker were vaguely consistent with the rule book and season interpretations (a stretch, but allow me my pretence). Then I think Young’s would have been a successful challenge, and I think Lui’s probably is rejected. Mind you Lui’s doesn’t actually happen if you challenge Young’s... Any...

Re: Through green eyes 2020

It’s a bit much to call Croker’s pass great when it was clearly forward isn’t it? Without Hodgson we need Croker to step up his discussion with the referees. He absolutely needed to be in the refs face highlighting that Storm were slowing the ruck continuously and asking when they would be binned. S...

Re: Zimply the best

I think given Smith’s knock ons and Hodgo’s knee Galea romps in at hooker.

Papenhuyzen played really well so maybe we switch him in at Centre for Croker?

Re: 2020 Rd 9 V Storm: Game Day

The officials were even worse than CNK tonight. I was dumbfounded by calls they did make and more so calls they didn’t make. Storm came out to disrupt the ruck and got away with it. Absolutely. There was one team that should have been sin binned on many occasions, and it wasn’t the one who actually...
