Re: Your side to take on the Bulldogs

I think we need to accept that at the moment none of our hookers can get 80 If Liddle can get 60 and ET 20 we need to live with that for the moment at least We don't have the absolute quality in the forwards to carry both Killa and Liddle and lose a bench forward replacement If you do you have to d...

Re: Second half interchange

Anyone here think it might be good to go with Mcillrick and Liddke off the bench? He's a very good dummy half and now we have a decent pack and Brooks is playing good footy we might just need the quick service. Apart from the poor passes there are slow passes high passes all stifling our attack. It ...

Re: Grit vs Class

Actually in our losses to NZ and Penrith nobody would have beaten them imo. And even Newcastle probably played their best for the year as well as Parramatta when they beat us. Still think they will make finals. But expected more second phase by now so we need to get some support players in there. Re...

Re: Grit vs Class

I don’t want to single players out but I think Corey Thompson epitomises our team at the moment, so much heart and tenacity but does not have real attacking flair. He can finish off a set play and defend like a demon but adds minimal to our attack. Would love to see him on a wing with a quality att...

Took plus 6.6 at 1.75 and yes it was a tough close game but not close enough. After 5 big previous wins took a loss here.

Re: Good luck Chris

He looks past it but is a good edge runner and didn't get much chance last night. If as an edge runner he makes a couple of breaks his confidence may return. People look slow and cumbersome when their mojo is off and confidence is down. I think he needs a few weeks in 1st grade so let's hope it come...

Think Ivan should seriously consider masters in the 2nd row
This is the way forward. We can then play Fanoua and Kev in the centre's.
We have options and we are not that far off really..Penrith had 50 plus tackles in our twenty and came up with 2 tries.

Re: It Takes Longer then a year to Rebuild a Club

Played a team that will be one of the main chances away with little SH ball and conceded 2 tries. Wasn't good enough but good signs in defence. I just thought we were simply too 1 out In attack with no support and when a few offloads came someone dropped it and even the passes that stuck were not fl...

Re: Bets

Might put a grand on with 4.5 or 6.5 pts start. Just have one concern. Truth is teams that have been winning with players out don't automatically get stronger when players return as the Cowboys found out this year. Penrith should be a top 4 team and one of the main chances but they were winning late...

Re: North Korea's Kim Jong-un meets South Korea's Moon Jae-in in DMZ for historic peace talks

Well Russia sure do have a big back yard they neighbour Europe Asia China and the US. They are all within range of their conventional weapons. Only Australia Africa and Latin America are out of range of their conventional weapons but they are not important global areas and still within nuclear reach...

Anyone warming to this game? I actually think the return of Cleary will weaken them for a week or two as he gets up to speed again. At the end of the day they have been a winning side and they need to make key positional changes. Their pack has been their trump. And we are pretty much at full streng...

Re: North Korea's Kim Jong-un meets South Korea's Moon Jae-in in DMZ for historic peace talks

Russia is not a superpower, they're regional, as is China. None of them match the military industrial complex that is the US. They're important in their locality, that's about it. Russia is not a superpower. You must be dreaming. Last month when that facade was going on in Syria the US Ambassador t...
