Re: Reynolds: "Nobody thinks they're better than anyone here"

Still not sold on Reynolds as our 5/8.....we could've gotten Watson, a younger, ball running player for half the price had we waited...but I sincerely hope Reynolds proves to be a great foil for Brooks and turns out to be our buy of the year.. I disagree we needed an older more experienced player i...

Re: Pre Season Casualty Report

If you play ET as a fill in at hooker you remove one of his strengths as a player(offloads). I am not sure that his service from DH is worth it to lose one of his strengths even if it is just in rotation.

Re: The Contenders: Lock

All this talk of locks playing like an extra prop in the middle makes me yearn for the attacking and cover defending locks like the great Johnny Raper and Kevin Smythe at the Magpies. Well, I've never denied being a dinosaur! Yeah watching the old style locks was one of the joys of rugby league :su...

Re: Politics Super Thread - keep it all in here

Rabid leftist is not a compatible term in the US. The Democrats sit farther to the right than the Libs. Agreed. If you look at Bernie Sanders, you see a fairly reasonable old man use logic to argue against his opponents. ted cruz was both Rabid and awful in his language and demeanor. If NRL was in ...

Re: Cleary's - "back to the future" prediction ?!

I think the difference is we have the personnel more suited to play that type of footy But you are correct if things go pear shaped some will blame Cleary Yes. Definitely a more rounded side than we've had previously. I look forward to the tough style. And the coach being in control. Cleary structu...

Re: Cleary's - "back to the future" prediction ?!

Cleary was referring to the tough as guts Wests sides of the 70's early 80's and the Balmain sides early 90's...most of those sides didn't have the greatest talents but you knew you were in a game when you played them...they played for each other.. Mental toughnes to play the game to the death for ...

Re: Cleary's - "back to the future" prediction ?!

I hope it means that the uncompromising style of both Balmain and the magpies will be on show.If we lose a game make the other mob limp of the field sick and sore and never give up.That attitude will win us more matches than we lose,if you look at the make up of the team that style should suit the p...

Re: Oldies But Goodies

I think there were three (or maybe two) first grade games at the SCG that day. If my memory is correct it was part of a promotion put on by John Singleton called Leagueathon. Another Corowa try that day was put on by your 5/8 (can't recall who it was). He put a shallow kick across field behind our ...
