Re: 2020 Rd 4 V Knights: Teams and Previews

This will be a tough game - Knights have a solid pack, Saifiti and Klemmer are a decent front row. They were unlucky not to beat Penrith and go 3-0. I agree regarding rotation, another thing to consider is rotating players if we are lucky enough to be in a situation where a game is won with 20 minu...

Re: 2020 Rd 3 V Storm: Fans' Choice Player of the Year

3 - Williams. He plays very direct and new rules suit him down to the ground. 2 - Hodgo. He runs the team out of dummy half and things ran very well. 1 - Paps. Can't underestimate his efforts in the engine room. Makes everybody else's job easier. Croker was all set for points but was fairly quiet in...

Playing devils advocate for a moment, that Papenhuyzen 'no try' should have been awarded. We would all be filthy if a call like that went against us.

Re: Ricky Stuart appears resigned to losing John Bateman

Proved tonight that JB is not a critical component to our success. Would love to keep him but if not, so be it. Good luck to him. Raiders will be ok.

Re: NRL set for massive payday in historic Foxtel, Nine broadcast deal

It's now blatantly obvious that Ch9 will screw you over at the first available opportunity. When a new deal is negotiated they should give it to 7 or 10 for 5% less than 9's best offer. Less money up front is a small trade off to rid yourself of a business partner that is driven by self interest and...

Re: NRL set for massive payday in historic Foxtel, Nine broadcast deal

Ch9 took advantage of the NRL at a weak moment to screw them out of crucial $$. They've made it abundantly clear they only see the game as a cash cow and showed their true colours when their support was needed.

There’s a reason why Lui won the coaches award last season and is a popular teammate. Granted Lui doesn’t offer much in attack, (which is what most fans notice) but he’s very good defending on the line, he doesn’t unexpectedly rush out of the defensive line, he communicates well with the guys besid...

When they get a "hit" WADA usually target testing to see if they can turn up a pattern or systemic issue at an organisation.

Re: Don Furner says John Bateman has permission to have negotiations with other clubs

We need to keep some wriggle room in our cap right now for upcoming seasons in case Williams turns out to be a gun. Upgrading him longer term would then be a priority. We will have a pretty good idea on that in the next few months.
