Re: Who would you prefer to play in the Preliminary Final?

I expect Souths to beat Manly in a close one with both sides bashing the crap out of each other.

I also tip Burgess to do something that sees him suspended again. Souths aren't the same side without him there.

Re: Rapana eyes Japan rugby union switch

He's been a great plater for us and at 30, with all the injuries he's sustained, he might have two more years in him if he stays in the NRL. If he goes to Japanese Rugby, his career could extend into his late 30s. Wingers in Union are more likely to catch a cold than a pass from a team mate (TIC). P...

Re: On the move? This is why your club is in danger of relocation

Works well in the U.S. We ain’t ‘specIal’ And, of course, the Sydney centric views that Gould holds were the very reason for Super League's emergence. It was Sydneycentric views which sparked superleague? The year where four non-nsw teams were admitted to the comp, and the comp was rebranded from n...

So I've now digested and calmed down a bit. Yes, the refs were not great but I'm not blaming them. The amount of times we've gotten away with Hodgo being miles offside, can't dwell on the offside intercept. It was also a pretty ridiculous pass to go for. BJ had a shocking game. It got to a point wh...

Assuming Tapine (ribs) and Rapana (burst blood vessel) are out injured, I'd pick: 1. Nicoll-Klokstad 2. Cotric. I know he had three weeks off, but he needs to find form real fast. 3. Croker 4. Leilua 5. Simonsson 6. Wighton 7. Sezer 8. Papalii 9. Hodgson 10. Soliola 11. Bateman 12. Whitehead 13. Sut...

Re: 2019 Rd 22 V Storm: Game Day

I've had it with Tapine. Release him to ESL or a low order NRL side. Enough.

Wigthon needs a huge kick up the **** and I doubt that Ricky is the man to deliver it.

Considering how much the boys have shot themselves in the foot, I still think we have a chance to reel the Storm back in.

I hope Whitehead contests the charge because the 75 carry-over points could be an issue in the finals.

People can forget about playing Tapine on th...
