Re: The good, the decent and the bad

Gelling so many new faces together was always going to be the biggest stumbling block for us in 2018, but what makes it even harder is we have no individual brilliant players to create something or any pace to carry us over to the combinations are formed. No doubt they will get better but they will ...

Re: Realistic team list round 1 2018

Ok, that's all we'll get to see so based on everything I think we will get: 1. Thompson 2. Nofo 3. Marsters 4. Kev 5 MWZ 6. Reynolds 7. Brooks 8. Packer 9. McIllwrick 10. Matulino 11. Taylor 12. Lawrence 13. Eisenhuth 14. Benji 15. Twal 16. Aloiai 17. Rochow/grant/sue not what I would necessarily w...

Re: Trial Match v Cronulla Sharks *LIVE Thread

Just back from the game, hard to be upbeat about this season. Lack of pace and lack of skill are two things that come to mind. They actually defended pretty well, but line breaks will be few and far in between. Early in the second half we had two sets and in those two sets the no7 touched the ball o...

Re: Dropped Lolohea faces fullback challenge

Tui will play a lot of games this year. Not sure what the kid has done that has so many against him. Every year there is a forum target, poor Fitzy copped it for 1/2 a decade, this year Brooks and Tui and maybe Lawrence will be the targets. On what I saw at the back end of 2016, Tui was the only on...

Re: Dropped Lolohea faces fullback challenge

Looking at our draw Tui might b e better off long term playing reserve grade for the first month or so. I still say he is our best option for the no1 job by some distant, but once again it is very hard to fault Cleary

Re: Team Announcement – Trial Match v Cronulla Sharks

Tui missing out has to be a discipline thing, he is the only one that comes close to having the X factor. I would also have Milne with Masters in the centre. As for only being a trial, except for a few injured players to come back, this will be our starting side come round 1...Scary

Re: NRL 2018 predictions: Fox Sports experts give their tips for the season

I think if you asked 99% of NRL followers the same questions, but told them they had to excluded there own team they would come up with much the same answers as the fox panel did. Anything outside a Storm.Cowboy, Chooks or at a pinch the Sharks Grand final win will be a massive boil over. As for us ...

Re: Mitchell Pearce

Going to be a few years before we have a marquee player signing on the dotted line, said it a million times, the so called top players are lured to a club for more than money. So how did Newcastle manage to land his signature? Sure they've recruited well, but so have we. Our coach is more competent...

Re: Tyson Gamble

Ok I saw a bit of him QLD cup and he went pretty good, but since last Saturday night I have posters say they remind him of a young Fittler, a young Lockyer and now Tom Humble. Another said they would not be surprised if he played SOO in a few years. I love optimism, but its a massive step up from QL...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

The problem with both the comparisons of TPA's is it only factors in the NRL approved ones. The RLPA is zero chance of agreeing to access to players financials. The only way to develop system is a points system... While money is involved, there will ALWAYS be corruption! 100% agreed.....There are a...

Re: Tyson Gamble

He will get the odd game in the top grade covering injuries, but the way I see it Benji will be the first called up to cover Brooks and Reynolds and Nagamia will cove Tui. So unless the wheels fall off big time, I cant see him getting to much NRL game time. We have seen the damage done before by rus...

It’s been mentioned many times that this is a forum and everyone has an opinion. No argument here. However, it appears some opinions are more important than others.
