Re: RL World Cup 2017 Thread...* SPOILERS

Can't have it both ways. If the players of yester-year played in today's conditions they too would have access to modern sports science techniques, strength and conditions and would be full-time professionals, not chain-smoking, bear-guzzling bricklayers working full time and playing footy in the ev...

Re: Mugabe overthrown in Zimbabwe?

I've been there many times, including recently. There are still lots of tourists there, mainly in the Vic falls area near the Botswana border. I never had any reason to feel unsafe there. I'd definitely recommend you go if you get a chance, especially if you like elephants, hippos and birds. Lots of...

Re: Tyson Gamble

When Brooks came to grade his short kicking game was pretty good. Under Potter, he was building a lethal combo with Tedesco with his short kicking game. It's strange it just deserted him so badly. I maintain it's a technical issue where he gets into a bad position where he's too square in relation t...

Re: Official - Josh Reynolds Signs Megathread

Like several others I'm far from convinced about the Reynolds signing on his skills alone. But it's also clear he wasn't recruited just for his skills set. If he can get an extra 5%-10% out of those around him through his 'passion plays' and never-give-up attitude he will have served his purpose. We...

Re: L Brooks

His last 2 months was a big improvement on the first half of the season. He played several very good games. Defense has improved but he will always have some issues there. If he can work hard and improve his short kicking game and game management he will be very valuable to the team. Re his short ki...

Re: Lovett Gone

It doesn't show much class to kick a bloke up he arse on the way out. I had no time for him as a player, but the fact that he played so many games over the last few years was a manifestation of other symptoms like poor recruitment, development and salary cap planning by the club. Thankfully we are m...

Re: We Need A Centre

If people think that lolohea is overweight, wait until you get a look at Fonua. I'd be surprised if he isn't pushing 115kg after his return from injury. I think Fonua could develop a bit of a cult following, but like some others I have reservations that we have too many of the same type of players i...

Does anyone know the official crowd figure?

Looked like another poor turnout at Campbelltown, especially since this is the last chance to watch a game there for 6 or 7 months.

For some reason he reminds me of Aussie Jum Tamou (at 20% of the price). It might just be the beard though.
