Courteous Sironen: Curtis proud of Bayley despite little brother beating him

At least someone in the Sironen household was thrilled with the 21-20 cliffhanger won by South Sydney over Manly at ANZ Stadium.

"Well, it wasn't me but I'm glad for my Bayley," Curtis Sironen, the Sea Eagles second-rower, said of his younger brother, who came off the bench to play in the Rabbitohs' forwards.

"But I'm very proud of him. It's the first time I've played him and only his fourth NRL game.

"When he left the Tigers for Souths we had a look when these games were. He didn't make it earlier [when Manly played Souths in round four] as they have such a strong side – it was hard for him to get a crack.

The front-rower, who is off contract at the Titans after next season, has become a priority target for Parramatta, Canterbury and Wests Tigers — even though they can’t make a play for him until he becomes a free agent from November 1 this year.

(I thought those three clubs were all in salary cap hell?)

Manly will also be keeping an eye on his contract developments given he is off contract at the same time as Sea Eagles prop Marty Taupau.

(lol, gotta stick Manly in there somewhere!)

With a new contract and his family joining him in Brisbane, life is going well for Broncos forward Tevita Pangai.

The Tongan international inked a new deal last week committing himself to the Broncos until the end of the 2022 NRL season and the security over his future has allowed him to relocate his parents and brother from Canberra. “Wayne’s not here so they gave me good money,” Pangai joked about his new deal, referring to ex-Broncos coach Wayne Bennett.

Robbie Farah has fired a shot at former coach Jason Taylor on the eve of his 300th game on Friday against the Knights.
Taylor famously ended Farah’s first stint at the Tigers back in 2016 by suggesting he would play in reserve grade, if he elected to stay with the club.

“I wouldn’t want to hear from JT anyway,’’ Farah told the The Sydney Morning Herald.

“At the time I was told by him and ‘Rocket’ Reddy, I’d finish my career in reserve grade. But I’m here now - ‘JT’ is coaching reserve grade [at North Sydney].’’

He was carving up the Sydney competition before Kallum Watkins was born yet Ellery Hanley's heroics 30 years ago are helping to drive the latest English import to prove that outside backs can crack it in the NRL.

Watkins will make his NRL debut at right centre for the Titans against the Broncos on Saturday evening, taking what he hopes will be the first step in dispelling the notion that English backs traditionally struggle in the NRL.

Rocket Reddy fires back at Farrah....

But former St George and Kangaroos legend Reddy has now fired back on social media.

“Well we were right he went to Souths and played reserve grade and that Wests Tigers team at the moment is a reserve grade team with 4/5 NRL players in it and Farah is not 1 of them,” Reddy said.

“Most selfish player I have ever been involved with while either playing the game or coaching bar none.”

Wy are we talking about Parradoesntmatter.
I mean "calculated" on he basis that we weren't considered a side that would be in the mix for the semi's this year
and everybody thought we were contenders for the wooden spoon so us having a tough run home wouldn't really have affected the season outcome for us. Sadly our success to date means that we have been dished up a terrible run home when we are a real chance.

As with anything in life, you dont improve by playing inferior teams, and you cant win and be a champion without playing the top guys and beating them... bring it on I say, good challenge for this crew and they look up to it!

We have won 4 games against 5 of the teams we have to play. If we can at least split the storm games. Maybe it is an easy draw :)

West Wales Raiders made history on the weekend, winning their first ever professional game.

The third tier semi-professional side had lost their previous 43 games and conceding on average 66 points per fixture.

Coached by former Capras boss Kim Williams, the Raiders saw off Coventry 44-16 in the League One clash.

Jackson Hastings will make the switch to Wigan next year to work under Adrian Lam.

But the former Roosters and Manly halfback has revealed he turned down the lure of returning home to sign with the Warriors.

“I just knew the way he [Lam] wanted to play would appeal to me,” Hastings told the Guardian.

“I just hope people know that this decision is because I want to be the best player and person I can be, not because of more money. I had Leeds, Wigan and clubs back home offering deals but clubs in the NRL wanted me to play out of position.”
