Re: 2020 Rd 20 V Sharks: Teams and Previews

There's no doubt that finishing in the top 4 is better than 5th (including the possibility of home ground advantage), but if we do finish 5th I reckon this is the season to do it. If we can't beat the Sharks in week 1 we don't deserve to win the comp. Worst case scenario for us is finishing 5th and...

Not sure what you are on about. A top 4 finish means we need 3 straight wins only, and have a shot at a home prelim final. I'd take it every day of the week over finishing 5-8th. If you think we can beat Penrith in 2 weeks time then you are correct. As I said, I believe majority of league enthusias...

I genuinely can't see any other interpretation to Sticky's comments other than what Pigbot is saying here.

I can only assume BJ is just winding him up here. In which case, Botman should definitely say it.

Re: NRL considering fine for Raiders coach Ricky Stuart over press conference

The 10 in the bin for the fake offside call was rubbish. What was worse was when Papalii copped an elbow in face and had blood gushing out and got penalised. Or when the Raiders player was deliberately taken out, obvious professional foul, and no sin binning was awarded. That being said, I’m sick o...

I like that idea, provided we can transition him to an 80 minute dummy half.

Then we don't need Havili or Starling in the 17 and we can stack the bench with outside backs in case Valamei drops the ball.
