Ok so I've done the tally of total votes through the year and it works out pretty similar to the 3, 2, 1 method.
There's certainly a lot more votes to count after a win. I've been pretty strict with how I count the votes and think it gets too messy counting multiple or split votes. For what it's worth I only count votes that have a clearly defined 3 2 1, for a total of 6 points towards the final count. For...
Massive apologies all. Family and work commitments have really got in the way of me keeping this updated this year. Although I notice I stopped posting updates after the Broncos game so maybe I lost interest completely 🤣
Anyway, here is a round by round catch up in this thread that will...
That and Seibold is coming into his second year. I would suggest most coaches would take min 3 yrs to assemble the staff / roster they want. I’m not sold on Seibold but we need to judge him on on the results produced by a staff and roster he assembled not one he inherited.
Good thread and will certainly check some of these suggestions out. With Manly out of contention and being an NFL fan I listen to a lot of NFL podcasts from here on but will certainly look at some of these.
He's a solid backup but not quite regular NRL quality and would continue to fall down the pecking order here with the Paulo signing and as players like Myers progress. Despite the infamous game against the Sharks he's actually a pretty good defensive centre. My biggest gripe with him was his...
I've looked at this a few different ways but can't get it. As 40 nil suggested while they may have been named they didn't necessarily play. Also, it says 5 first grade GF teams in 5 straight years...doesn't specifically mention NRL GF's...could have been Super League (Aus or Eng) included there...
I don't see it as a major issue. Pretty much every major transaction anyone does has a cooling off period, which is basically what this is.
I was recently approached by another company to go and work for them. I said I was happy in my job but if they offered x amount I would consider it. They...
I’m going to go against the grain and hold out hope for this bloke. That kind of potential doesn’t come along often. Cliff Lyons is a Manly and Rugby League legend as is Phil Blake and rightfully so. But they were not without their faults, particularly early on in their careers, namely defensive...
Pretty much agree with that mate. Only I'd give Burbo a crack at left edge ahead of Tuilagi as I think he's shown improvement in his limited chances this year and has more potential upside and hopefully he can regain some of the lower grade connection he had with Schu. Backup hooker I think it...
I'd give him a year or two at fullback in NSW Cup and allow him to concentrate on one position. We need a better plan B than Reuben at FB. I love Reuben and he does a solid job when called on at fullback but he's lack of ball playing in that role is starting to show up more and more. Weekes is...
We don’t deserve finals footy, but neither will anyone from about 6 down. Should be top 5. The 8 team finals concept is for tv to have more post season games, and fair enough as they effectively pay the bills. However, teams 6-8 are generally just making up the numbers.
