Re: Nathan Cleary

I am seriously concerned that Roosters are already putting all their ducks in a row for a power play. They sign Cronk for two seasons, then sack Robinson and sign both Cleary's. Is Ivan leaving at the end of 2019..as he is contracted to Wests Tigers until the end of 2020 season... If this is just a...

Re: NRL agrees to review third-party agreements in a bid to end salary cap rorting

The champion data of the salary cap is "no consecutive premiers in the NRL era". What is interesting beyond that is only 7 unique teams have played consecutive GFs (Roosters 02-03, Roosters 03-04, Melb 06-07, Melb 07-08, Manly 07-08, Melb 08-09, Melb 16-17), with only 3 clubs having achieved it at ...

Re: Nathan Cleary

If you read what I said correctly which was... Flanagan ( Mr Peptides) is not as good as Robinson. Nothing else. I don't care if he played 17 back rowers, that is not the point. What you said is that Robinson is as good as Brad Arthur What if we look at it from another angle? Nathan has a quiet sea...

Re: Manly Salary cap issue

Manly Silvertails not so silver since powerbrokers Arko and Co are retired...

Now that the RLPA is calling to overhaul/abolish TPA's we may get somewhere. The fans want some sort of transparency and that would only be good for the game.

Re: What Car do you Drive..?

Pajero 4WD manual diesel. Always need a vehicle that tows well and doesn't mind being off the bitumen. Has been very lean on fuel and a pretty good car.

Would love to see Nofo play an injury-free season at least once... just once!

Re: Is it time to exactly quantify the players value?

The other two questions that have now come to mind are this When do you upgrade/downgrade their ratings ?? What do we do with rookies ?? Obviously some rookies come with big wraps when they come in but aren't tested at NRL level or would they all receive the same rating I'd think that whatever prog...

Re: Is it time to exactly quantify the players value?

Still comes back to supply and demand which will mess with the points system An example would be the current situation with fullbacks and hookers , most clubs have good quality fullbacks and hookers Then rate the backrowers and centres , far different situation One club's diamond might be another c...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I take every player's price tag with a grain of salt. Yeah true , especially hen you have no idea if the figures quoted are with or without TPA's Actually it would be interesting to find out how many players in the NRL actually get TPA's Not as many as you would think....Kenty said on NRL 360 earli...

Is it time to exactly quantify the players value?

The latest fiasco concerning Jarryd Hayne taking a near 60% pay cut and NRL being okay with it has once again highlighted the vagaries with a salary-cap/TPA arrangement as we know it. It is clear that some clubs do this very well while the majority cannot compete. Some others on this forum that know...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I may not be a case of Ivan not wanting to pick Tui. But more Tui wanting to play In the halves and not at fullback. Tell me once where you hav heard Tui mention he wants to play fullback because I haven’t. Five eight is his preference and maybe Ivan has had a tough time trying to convince him of a...

Re: Marshall backs Lolohea move to No.1

While his kicking, fifth-tackle options and game management was sometimes lacking during the World Cup, his explosiveness and game-breaking ability was on show. http://www.nrl.com/marshall-backs-lolohea-move-to-no1/tabid/10874/newsid/116650/default.aspx Sounds like a fullback to me, rather than a #6
