Re: 2022 Rd 22 V Dragons: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

For what its worth I did the ladder predictor and had us come 9th - albeit equal 6th on points with F/A pushing us all the way back to 9th. Given how it stands now though - I am with other posters here - blood some of the young'ens. So what if we drift to 10 or 11th. Give them game time in a season ...

Re: 2022 Rd 20 V Titans: Teams and Previews

responding to an earlier comment re CNK. I watched him play on the weekend, and I have to admit I was very happy he wasn't playing first grade. He did not play well - certainly not up to his usual standards defensively. And in attack, by heaven does he die with the ball a lot. I really do wish him t...

Re: 2022 Rd 18 V Storm: Game Day

great game - but a thought for you on that last play.
Klein said "you can challenge it" like 3 times. Almost like he wanted the raiders to challenge it - maybe he felt he had to call it, but equally thought it was a bad call?

Here is a different take for you. Firstly, we played ****, and well and truly deserved to lose. However we played with our 3rd string halfback, missing both 1st up wingers, which then led to other players out of position. Ricky has said before there are no "easy" games in NRL - and maybe t...

we have nothing to gain by offloading him early. We don't get the money back - its dead $$. If he sits on the sidelines as contingency for injuries etc. all the better for us. That doesn't stop the young blood coming through - just gives us depth a season. If he never gets used, all good, still no d...

Its probably also worth considering that COVID will likely impact our ability to field players for a given match - above and beyond Rep duty or injury.
