    I’d love to see them focus on local talent, however, Pacifica players are dominating the junior ranks, and most are located out west. How many junior comps did Penrith ‘not’ win last year? And how many of their players were Pacifica? I have no issue with it at all, and the number of Pacifica...

    Pre-Game Souths v Manly [Round 4, 2023]

    The human brain is an amazing thing. Typos, mirror image, and yet everyone can see the team and read the team. No changes were expected, except for maybe υtolυpiυT nɒitƨiɿʜƆ.

    Pre-Game Souths v Manly [Round 4, 2023]

    South’s are absolutely going to be ‘up’ for this game, with Sattler’s sad passing. They will be playing on a lot of emotion and will play the full 80. I think we’ll dominate the early stages, however, if we drop off like last week, they’ll roll over the top of us. It’s going to be a great...

    Gordon Chan Kum Tong

    I think Gordon is going to be a wonderful asset, and a bit in the Toovey mould. I think Croker is doing okay. His defence is beyond question, and right out of the Ballin mould. Unfortunately he has lapses in his passing, where a runner almost has to stop to catch the pass, and his choices of...

    I am so surprised at Harold Matt’s and SG Ball. They have been really underwhelming, which is a worry for future talent coming through, as opposed to a couple of years ago.

    2023 ... players in trouble ..breaking

    Does Ferguson deserve to be paid by the NRL for a nose reconstruction, yeah probably, as his ugly snoz was definitely due to playing NRL. Do Stevie Mortimer and Ray Price et al, deserve to have their medical expenses covered by the NRL for injuries that have caused long term health problems as...

    Pre-Game Manly v Eels [Round 3, 2023]

    Two days to go and it's going to be topical. If we can control the middle, we'll win.

    NRL to expand to a 20 team comp ?

    It’s all about money! AFL is played widely in each state throughout Australia, maybe not so much in NSW and QLD. The AFL has: Two teams in WA Two teams in SA Two teams in QLD Two teams in NSW A bucketload in Victoria A new team in Tasmania They will have one in NT, in the not so distant future...

    Parker puts his heart and soul into every game, and, unfortunately his head as well. I happened to be sitting at the table next to him last year when he was celebrating his birthday with friends, and he has a really, really big and strong body. Parker may not be the fastest centre in the...

    Roosters’ cap crisis could send star to rugby, and force half to rival

    What I don’t understand is Parra wanted a swap with Manly for Morgan Harper and yet Parra ‘gift’ him to the Roosters. I reckon there’s another arrangement we may not see until year’s end.

    Does Burbo cement a Top 17 spot in 2023 ?

    Burbo had a 'blinder' against the Tigpies at Brooky last year and even received 3 Dally M points for the game. The question is can he hold his spot on the bench ahead of the others, in terms of a need for a back or forward? Burbo's statistics strunned me for 2022, and while most of his attack...

    Does anyone else think this was a bad look on Sat post game?

    I can only assume you are not a parent, and as a parent, it’s the first thing I would have done, ‘win, lose or draw. You do realise they live together!

    Riddle me this

    Flanagan is a very good attack coach and I am sure he will fix that. Tom is known to sprint from the left side to the right side and vice versa or through the middle, and you hear the calls from opposition sides, they always call out Turbo, right side, middle or left side and that can 'suck in'...

    Olakau’atu upgraded

    I will not be surprised if Freddie selects Olakau'atu to play SOO this year, he just owned Kikau, however, I think Jake was stiff in mising out on Dally M points, as he owned the middle and some of his hits were absolute 'bone crackers' and knocked 'the stuffing' out of the Bulldogs middle attack.

    Riddle me this

    I reckon Seibs just told him to go out and enjoy it. He's one of the best players in the game, if not the best, and he plays on instict, and you can't coach that. He turns up anywhere and just reads the play so well. After a game like that, the calls that he's a 'bit rusty' is a fabulous sign...

    NRL's 17th Team - The (Redcliffe) dolphins

    The Chooks were atrocious, with so much lost ball, however, all credit to the Dolphins and I was ‘rooting for them.’ It just added to a great weekend!

    My 2 things from last night ..

    If they want Fifita to stay, as much as I like Burbo’s ability to play backs or forwards, from the trials, I think Bullemore and Fifita would add more through the middle. Weekes has to be on the bench, albeit he was pretty ordinary yesterday, however, he spent a long time at 9, which is...

    My 2 things from last night ..

    It will be interesting to see the Dally M points, now there’s two judges per game. DCE will get 6 as he completely dominated the game. I think Jake will likely get 3 due to his defence and game time. Mahoney and Turbo could get 1 or 2 each. To be honest, I think Mahoney was probably the...
