    Tom Wright

    Referring back to Tom Wright's first grade games, though its recorded he played 5 games, I could only find four games where his name was listed. In his first game he played for 6 minutes against the Bronks in Brisbane, then flew back to play for Blacktown 2 days later and helped them to a win...

    Innocent until proven guilty. Fortunately we have that principle in our law system, though it didn't seem to apply with the De Bellin and Walker case and the no fault concept, which despite what the Supreme Court judge said, is in fact contrary to the principle by which our legal system operates

    NON Manly games [Round 9, 2020]

    The Roosters look sure of another tilt at the Title. They and the Storm (again) look like grand finalists. The Eels, Panthers, maybe the Knights look the only teams I can see challenging. Unfortunately I cant see the Sea Eagles up there unless, we get Tom and Walker back in time, fix up the...

    Tom Wright

    Woodsie, the kid has a gift very few players have. Now your comment is probably valid but I recall Canterbury saying the same sort of thing about a weedy little character called Thurston. You can always train a player to work on aspects of his game and that may include toughness. Phil Blake was...

    Aw Mark. That's a bit tough. True but tough. Careful you may have to apologise for besmirching their character.

    If Des had let him go it would be because he was financially under the pump with players he had. But did he? I look at the pedestrian group in our backline. Yeh good defenders,, try hard, but they aren't going to open up a game. Like Gutherson, I think Wright had decided he wasn't wanted and...

    Tom Wright

    Bit tough on him C & C. He was a star junior and highly regarded and one Bob Fulton had great hopes for when he invited him to Manly. I understand there were other clubs after him, but he left before his contract had expired because of the offer to the Brumbies. This kid was a RU school boy...

    Hasler

    Far be it from me to criticise too much someone who I consider one of the best coaches in the game. Hasler is a shrewd operator, one who cares very much for his players, expects their fitness to be top drawer, backs his players and most importantly knows where they are to be on the field...

    Tom Wright

    Point taken Smokin' and I know you are quite knowledgeable and astute about these sports. But as I recall the times I saw this kid play, he did have some very clever moves linking with other players. I think he has the skill set, but may take some time before it matures.

    And for that type of offence, its a question of years.

    Tom Wright

    Actually he plays in several positions with the Brumbies including stand off, centre, wing and full back, but yes he's been recently on the wing. He generally plays outside centre or wing for the Canberra Vikings. He is seen as a sensation for the Brumby fans as reported and in consideration...

    Fifita BACKFLIPS on Titans deal! (release the hounds)

    Fair enough Eagle. My aim was to demonstrate individual bias always raises the spectre of self righteous indignation. Its being plainly shown in the AFB matter, where many RL supporters and news people are calling for AFBs head beyond the 2 weeks he got. Yet Klemmer back in 2015 almost caused a...

    Fifita BACKFLIPS on Titans deal! (release the hounds)

    Where's 'The Mouth' Tallis. Oh I forgot. This is about the Bronks not the Sea Eagles. Tallis always was the best hypocrite in the game wasn't he

    Tom Wright

    Simple. he was offered a deal he couldn't refuse by the Brumbies. It seemed the Sea Eagles weren't interested and he had already given up a Rugby Union career and promise of Union 7s stardom to try out at Manly. But you're right, he chose to leave because Barrett didn't seem interested in giving...

    You are agreeing with me aren't you. Wasn't sure because there was a mixed message there

    You're quite right. Why make a positive judgment call. I mean this is Manly

    Hadley wants AFB gone for 8 weeks

    Those pushing this aren't looking for apologies. They are looking for blood, because it suits their bias against a team they oppose. There is no way they would take this stance if it was their own team. This is a witch hunt, initiated by journalists, who quite frankly know no more about the...

    PRE-GAME DISCUSSION: Dragons v Manly [Round 9, 2020]

    Sorry Des. I respect you for what you've done in the past. But for the life of me I cannot understand your persistence with a backline that is failing consistently. Maybe I'm missing the point, but I think you've made a judgement flaw.
