Love Cleary on the sideline. Not sure if he has said why - but I like it. Its great to see his interactions with the players.
They asked him last week, he said he wanted to get a better feel for the mood and energy of the players, which is something you can't really do from the box.

Re: Garner

So pleased to see a promotion take that step up and not look out of placd. Certainly one who earned his stripes.

Re: HOW RIGGED IS THE NRL

The best thing you can do is to follow another sport... plenty of options available. For me, I choose to start following the NFL (not everyone’s cup of tea)... I loosely followed it from 2012-2014, and then started really getting it in 2015. Now I absolutely love it. I still follow league, but not ...

Re: Farah's Last Hurrah

Doesn't matter how good their form is this year, just look at Thurston. Players fall off cliffs in their mid 30's. Well that's good because Benji is currently 33 - 2 or so years to go. As Geo noted, Cam Smith is 35. Also Cronk is 34, Gallen is 36. Slater just turned 35. Flash Gordon is 34. Farah's ...

Re: New chapter in book of feuds

I don't mind Rusty, we need more rich high-profile people pouring their money, resource and pulling power into the game. He loves his Rabbits, he loves them at home, he loves them overseas, he loves them on the Jay Leno Show. That can only be a good thing. The rest of it, the arrogance etc., well t...

Re: Round 19 spoilers

How good was Slimey Fart's interview at HT, when Ruan Sims caught him before he jogged off? Something like: "We aren't getting any calls, the 50/50s are going against us, so we'll have to just step up and take the game ourselves." This is whilst B Moz is in the sin bin for 10 mins - hard to complain...

Re: RHYSE MARTIN

Looked up this bloke and actually thought “this could be a great signing.” No surprise when I read The Pom’s post. I’m so over our recruitment at present. Sorry for being so negative but I’m just fed up with seeing signings all over the place and we sign nobody of value - MBye being the exception t...

Re: Rugby League is dying in the bush

One of the major problems that nobody can fix is that league is a continuous contact sport. Soccer is barely contact and AFL is partial contact, i.e. you don't have to run and get tackled every play. Parents are gradually shifting their kids away from contact sports. Myself, I played league until I ...

Aloiai - gets out wrestled put on his back 99% of the time for a slow play-the-ball.
? Aloiai for one often punches through the line and lands on his front??

Hooth is the master of being put on his back. Hooth and ET.

1-13 are all class. 14-17 aren't. Still a fantastic side on paper. We need to be on. Doueihi and Clark are class and Tatola has been really good this year Clark is class? Cmon, nice bloke, respectable, but very average. Souths always have at least one, like Dave Tyrrell before him. Cameron Murray i...

Re: Souffs FB page sledging

You know what, being genuine for a minute, but if there was any set of club's supporters that I honestly feel can sympathise / understand Tigers, it's Rabbitohs fans. Forget social media banter, they are cut from the same cloth as many of us, and South Sydney has always had a lot in common with the ...

Re: **Live game thread**

What the hell is a 60 minute game anyway? Blows my mind why Foxtel bother. They have a dedicated Footy channel that needs content, and they then have to pay someone to cut down the games by 25% to fit into some stupid 1-hour timeslot. Reminds me of the old Channel 10 games that were highly edited to...
