Re: The Boxing Thread

We should be able to get a good form-line on Tszyu from here on in. With PPV money behind him, they will be able to afford higher quality opponents. He needs to start cleaning out the local ranks & to face a few carefully selected international opponents. Fighting the national champ for the Austral...

Re: The Boxing Thread

Has he got a match lined up with Horn also, or are they talking it up in the hopes of getting one? Tszyu isn't ready for Horn yet but that would be the ultimate goal. Horn has international experience & has held a professional world championship so Tszyu needs to bridge the gap in experience that e...

Re: The Boxing Thread

Tim Tszyu fights for the Australian Light Middleweight title on Wednesday night against Joel Camilleri. Decent step-up fight for Tszyu with Camilleri not having previously been stopped inside the distance. Tszyu should win though. It's Main Event PPV which all of Tszyu's fights likely will be from n...

Re: 2019 Rd 6 V Broncos: Fans' Choice Player of the Year

3. Bateman - Astonishing performance from this bloke. Scored a try, set up tries, made tackles. Even that professional foul at the end was a smart play. It denied the Broncos a try scoring opportunity with time running out. By the time they did get one a little later on, we only had to defend one se...

I have to do my points off the condensed Foxtel one hour replay this week. Not ideal, so I'll spread them evenly: 1 each to Papalii, Leipana & the three Pommie backrowers (including Sutton who appeared to play a front-rower's role). We've struck gold with those Pommies.

Good win by Andrew Moloney in a WBA world title eliminator today in Chile. That's two kayo wins against world class opposition from his last two starts. He's our next world champ.

Tszyu is a good talent which is why I've mentioned him here a few times. But let's not go overboard. The bloke he was matched with wasn't up to it.

All quiet on the boxing thread.

I've been following the heavyweight division & local Australian boxing.

Tim Tszyu is progressing nicely. He's 10 and 0 with 8 kayos.

Fights again in Bendigo on 8 Sep.

Have to agree with this.

Folau would add strike to any backline in the comp.

Would also boost the profile of the side (which in turn would bring in revenue).

Re: Croker for the wing

He's obviously a first grader & a high quality one. I've always advocated that he be put on the wing though b/c it more suits his skill set. He would have played higher level rep football by now if he had. Would also be very handy cover as the no.3 centre in the club when a first choice guy is out. ...

I'd go hard to try & sign him. He's got genuine star quality & would boost the profile & credibility of the side.

Re: Bulldogs want Sezer immediately

Sezer is a very good footballer but he isn't the right fit for our side & never has been. If someone else wants him, let him go. And soon, so the other two can settle down & play the football they're capable of. And Warren Smith is wrong. There's plenty of hope for the side. It's not even cold yet.

Fair dinkum, getting them to hand over the sausage & latte to Fui has been like extracting wisdom teeth.
