Re: Podcast with Matt Elliott

If your goal is to win the premiership, you need to at least make the finals occasionally, m8.

It doesn’t matter a pinch of **** how talented your squad is if they never make the top 8.

A large part of me thinks the nrl should stick to footy and leave the criminal charges to the experts- courts deal with it and that's it.

Matt Elliott was easily the best coach we've had for getting the best out of players week in, week out since Tim Sheens.

NRL ban Jack Wighton for 10 matches, impose $30,000 fine

10 weeks was fair enough. He got hammered and behaved like a twat. Pearce was hard done by IMO but it occurred as part of a team function and was witnessed by teammates. But it was much more lenient than the trial by media handed to Joel Monaghan. Monaghan’s was MUCH worse than Pearce’s though. Peo...

I think it's impossible to measure a negative or positive effect from a captaincy change in Rugby League. I can't think of any examples where there is a correlation to a change in results but narrowing it down to captaincy would be very tough. Exactly my point. Which makes me wonder why you’d switc...

RD, Our team and individual defensive efforts are what's most needed as finishing 10th worst defensively means a poor season.
