    Representative honours (& game day thread)

    We improved a lot, to the point the tests were 50/50 encounters long ago, last couple of years have been a debacle but heading in the right direction again now. Poms have been holding the same standard for a very long time, mainly in the 3 spot with Tonga pressing for that now. Went to both...

    Agreed About as sad as being someone who only turns up to sink the boot into the club

    [Resurrected] Dogs 10 year deal for Latrell (and contract dramas)

    What am I missing here ? We have a guy being hung, drawn and quartered because he is testing his worth on the open market, much like Jai Arrow and David Fifita, but no media and public outrage over them. Ryan Matterson was woeful in how he handled his situation but he is all good too

    [Resurrected] Dogs 10 year deal for Latrell (and contract dramas)

    That’s like saying you’d rather have Brendan Elliott at FB over Tom

    Samantha in strife (and medical retirement rorts)

    I’ll leave all the political rubbish out of it for now One of the best forwards I’ve seen in the nrl in the past 20 years, bit of old school stuff still in him, punishing defender and strong runner with all the skills, and not much regard for his own body, and if any stuff was being put on he...

    2020 hooker (and Fainu disc.)

    The Broncos didn’t want Ballin, Canberra didn’t want Robertson or Bryant, Souths didn’t want Galuvao, Dogs didn’t want Hall, Roosters didn’t want Rose, the list could go on and on Not a fan of that line of reasoning for not wanting a player

    2020 hooker (and Fainu disc.)

    Have to be looking at some experience to come in, so Luke or Levi are the best fits in that area

    I hate Adam Blair and don’t know anyone over here that likes him

    Representative honours (& game day thread)

    Went and watched Samoa v Canterbury Bulls tonight, Samoa full time pros against my local amateurs Jorge and Marty playing with Toovey running the water. Samoa came out firing to a 20-0 lead after 15mins then the Bulls had a good 15 mins before conceding 2 late tries and a 32-0 ht scoreline...

    World Cup Nines Draw ....

    Moses was outstanding in the last World Cup for Lebanon under Freddy so they have a history together

    That final was the most corrupt 20mins of refereeing I’ve ever seen

    Grand Final staying in Sydney

    I agree 100% with keeping it in Sydney The competition is built on the Sydney roots, the game is based on tradition, and I’m happy for the Grand Final to stay at its traditional base rather than be whored out to other centres. You wouldn’t see the AFL sending their GF outside of Melbourne

    Mason Lino

    reports the Knights are trying to move him on to clear some salary space After losing Hodkinson and Elgey, he would be a very handy backup player in the squad to cover 6/7 and 9. Has performed well every opportunity he has been given in first grade the past few years, solid experienced backup...

    RWC Refs vs NRL Refs

    Sky TV is our version of Fox and have all the serious sports on their platform, for this tournament they were outbid by a streaming company, similar to what happened in Australia with the Soccer World Cup I believe. $90 for a tournament pass, All Blacks games and a select other few are on free...

    RWC Refs vs NRL Refs

    Haven’t watched any of it because it doesn’t interest me enough to pay for it, but I have always found the Rugby way of using the video extremely tedious tbh. Interesting to read your views on the refs as well because most of the comment I’m hearing is that they have been pretty poor
