Re: Coaching circus

Greg Alexander just said Barrett and Bennett wiil definitely not be coaching at Penrith, and at this point they are looking at no one except Ciraldo at least till the end of the year. That could mean many things and no doubt there will be lots of opinions. I thought Brandy was very careful about ho...

Re: Chee Kam enjoying good form and finals chance

In my mind, MCK seems to build on some fairly consistent performances until I'm becoming a fan, then knocks that all down with a dumb one... maybe the hallmarks of a young fella learning his trade?

Just hope he can put a few more decent ones together. He's proved me wrong before.

Re: Cleary vs Paul Crawley

I think Crawley is usually on 360 tonight as a regular panellist so would be interesting if they show the bits cut out by the NRL on the after match press conference. He no doubt will be chucking in his 2 cents worth on the show, i dont think this drama is going away until like others have said som...

Re: Farah's Last Hurrah

There's no doubt he's been great since coming back, and if it had happened earlier we could well be in a better position. Play on? Sure, but I do have one or two concerns which are mainly around the contract amount and taking a spot in the 30 squad if he is never going to be played in ISP. But if he...

Re: Will the Wests Tigers make the 2018 finals?

My mates who support other clubs are far more confident about WT making finals than I am... personally think the Broncos will get there.

Re: Cleary vs Paul Crawley

So the exchange was just on NRL360 now. Not a huge amount in it. Lots of chat as about it now. According to Buzz Gould went to Wayne Beavis last Monday and said Griffin is out and is to be replaced by Cleary. So do we believe Gus? If so, then it would only be due diligence to sound out the potentia...

Re: Ivan Cleary

I'm going to be an optimist. The meeting he had was informal and out of respect to a former colleague who was driving a move at Penrith to get Ivan back. Ivan not interested. It comes out that Gus has sacked Hook, and to be open and honest, Ivan pays the WT board the courtesy of letting them know he...

Re: Bunker ruling on forward passes

We had a big conversation about this earlier in the year - they don't have the technology to rule on forward passes. You can't just draw a line on the field, you need 3-dimensional data, which isn't set up in league. Something like Hawkeye maybe be able to do it, like it does for LBWs in cricket, b...

Re: Live game thread v Knights, *spoilers*

A good win in the end. Some poor refereeing, especially missing forward passes and the usual ‘nothing’ penalties. We were better than the final score indicated ... and a long way off the refs looking at us favourably. Geez I'm sick of the whinging about the ref bias last night! If anything Newcastl...
