Re: NYC FW1 - Team List v Parramatta* Live Game Thread

I reckon Roberts and Sharpe a bit unsung at NYC level, both look good to me most times I see them.

Be the player your team mates want to play with... Not the guy they think is a flog
Also has reputation for not being very coachable. Will be surprised if he plays much first grade.

Every team has it's what ifs

If we had of got the win over the Gold Coast we would now be confirmed in the semies. All it would have taken is field goal to have gone over. If Brooks had of knocked over the field goal instead of hitting the post against Melbourne we'd be almost certainly in. The line between success and failure ...

Re: Souths sign 4 young guns, all very good

Kevvie at centre is problematic, has ability, not a great decision maker.

R Jennings at right centre pushing Kevvie to the wing would have been great.

All good signings, but the pick of the bunch for me is Fuimaono.
Lol definitely Burns, Braiden Bailey is a completely different kid :)

I love R Jennings, but Tyrell is also a gun.

Cant believe they got all of them!

Souths sign 4 young guns, all very good

I reckon Souths have struck gold signing 4 outstanding players in one hit. I reckon all will play some first grade next year and all have the potential to very good. Quite a coup really. If you havent heard they got Robert Jennings (who I reckon is amazing) Tyrell Fuimono (Aus schoolsx2, Junior roos...

Re: That was painful!!!!!

I ve watched a hell of a lot more painful games than that! As for the Robbie situation. Robbie has been one of my all time favorite Tigers (probably number 1 since the merge), however I think it is time to move on. I don't think Robbie's skills suits our style, said so after round 2 before the drama...

Re: Next Generation Scholarship Camp 2016

Yes a good effort by Mikaele. Though we've perhaps got too many front row prospects coming through at the same time. Hope to see him in NYC next season and see how he develops SInce the very beginning of NYC we have always had quality props. Lots of kicked on at different levels, some faded away. W...

The irresistible force meets the immovable object!

This should be interesting, we cant defend, they cant attack...

Wonder how that will turn out!

The dragons are diabolical to watch as a neutral fan, hope they don't come good against us

Re: Dene Halatau Announces His Retirement

Congrats on a good career. His performances in the back half of 2005 were underrated, he played an important role getting us going from DH and allowing robbie to attack from first receiver at times. Was MOM against the dragons?? 250ish games (by the end of the year), 15 tests, 1 premiership and a Gr...

Re: Player Managers

The whole cap thing needs to be dismantled. It had two purposes to protect the clubs from themselves over spending on players and equalization. It does neither. Clubs are broke and the same teams always win. The NRL should take control of player income (at least distribution) and new methods of equa...

Flogging a dead horse, but Right side defence again

Not giving away any secrets, but the right side defense again copped a bath. We seemed committed to playing a big up and in defense, but copped it again out wide. Normally it seems mostly Kevvie and Noffa that struggle with the structure, I think that Moses seemed to be the main culprit I probably c...

Re: Player Managers

It is sometimes hard to prove that the players (and managers) know that things are not right. But if the alleged money in the car park is true, the player must know that is not normal. I know in the storm 2 books fiasco that the players have been declared non complicit in the cheating, but if they d...

Re: Why Rugby League Is No Longer Number 1 For Me

I see your point. I love the game and watch alot of it. I have issues with the way the game is played at the highest level, everyone plays the percentages and plays not to lose. Alot of the football is coached out of the kids. Everyone plays the same style. The tribal nature exists for fans, but not...

Re: 3, 2, 1

3. Grant 2. Taylor 1. Lawrence Thought the halves were good as well. As for the Simona/ Rankin kick, it was definitely on, they had 3 tigers leading the race across about a 20 m cross section of the field, gave Simona a high margin for error with the kick that would still see a tiger lead the chase....

Re: Modern Game means Big Injuries!!!

Yeah, the modern style definitely sees more twisting injuries.

The other one that is new is the pectoral tears that come from "catching" players that is the new style.

Re: Mitch Brown

He has always been a whole hearted fringe player, who at times has been a little bit better than that.

But he is virtually at the end now, he has no upside and is not the sort of player we need to chase.
