Re: Penrith Panthers 2019

Gould pulled them out of the **** several years ago. Past his use by date now. He was able to turn them around when they lacked leadership. Since then his meddling with the coaching and football matters has become a hindrance. Sacking the coach last year while the team was challenging for a top 4 sp...

Re: NFL Thread

Definitely. As an eagles fan what i dont want the Giants to do is trade some second or third for Rosen, and take Simmons with 17 after taking someone like Sweat @ 6. That would be very problematic for me personally Ideally they take Daniel Jones @ 6, and come back and grab Rashan Gary at 17 I'd so ...

Re: Williams or Sezer

While not disagreeing with RR's assessment I don't see it presenting a great case for Williams long term. If that's his ceiling it confirms he's only a placeholder till Sezer returns. Otherwise he needs to step it up a notch in order to confirm his starting role. I don't think he is at his ceiling ...

Re: 2019 Dally M points

Fair enough. Was a tight game so a Bronco gets a point I can live with. Bateman had a match changing impact with his try & assist plus usual high work rate at quality. CNK was very, very involved & maybe gets some hero points for his knee. Watching the replay he is starting to handle more in backli...

At the moment Sam Williams is having as close to zero to do with our result. Which gets glossed over when your winning, but really its not a good thing. We're generally a composed team out there in attack and defense, and our 6th tackle options are much better than they have been the past couple ye...

Wackos Whispers says CNK is in a brace and racing the clock to be fit. No surprise really, but one to keep an eye on. EDIT: NRL Physio saying 1 week, maybe. Finishing the game was a good sign. Give him a week if needed. Key will be if playing risks making the injury worse or slow recovery. If thats...
