Re: **Live Game Thread**

Post Match Presser Was Ivan about to storm out and stopped himself ?? Yeah I’d say so ! He’s gone .... looks to me likes his hearts not in it anymore. Rubbish. Did you hear the ridiculous question he got asked? "Where has your joy gone Ivan?". i'd be close to walking out at such a contrived questio...

Re: **Live Game Thread**

The whole team was off. Easy to pick out the player you like to blame the most today and find fault. They were pretty much all below average. Throw Ivan in with that too. Spot on. The whole team was pathetic in a do-or-die game, that was the most disappointing thing. People blaming MCK for the miss...

Re: **Live Game Thread**

Must be the first game this year where there hasn’t been any whinging about the refs. I guess when you lead the penalty count 6-0, it’s a little hard to do. The Garner PTB penalty was a bad one, 99 times out of 100 that would be a penalty against the marker for "crowding" or whatever BS name they c...

Re: Round 23 *Spoilers

I hate how Smith was injured last night, completely unnecessary and predictable and it is all about slowing the game down. Only allow one defender at a time so a player's body cannot get twisted and abused. As well as hurrying the game up this will allow champs to look more like champs as will have...

Re: Round 23 *Spoilers

Well done Parra, mission accomplished. Served it up to the Swine's physicality-wise and laid a few out, nice job! I do hope Cammy is alright though. Karma at it's most poetic, the dogshotting worm getting blasted in the back. Brilliant. At least other teams will have a nice juicy soft spot to focus ...

Greenberg The Ostrich

Saw the show 'The Fan' on Foxtel last night, the segment where viewers send their questions in. The questions were answered by Greenberg this week. Q: Are the NRL going to implement transparency when it comes to making public total 3rd-party payments within each NRL club so that us fans can be aware...

Re: Craig Bellamy comments

Perhaps something along the lines of "teams are best assembled outside the laws of the game......grubby tactics are the way forward in our game and if blokes get left in wheelchairs because of it then so be it"......blah blah blah. Agree with his comment that leadership at the top of the NRL is utte...

Kev Walters was an absolute embarrassment in the commentary tonight, it was like he thought he was sitting on his couch cheering the Broncos home. Pretty pathetic really.

Re: Balmain v Raiders ‘89 grand final

I was at the game and must have been pretty naïve but I couldn't work out how quickly the Raiders had all those Championship T-Shirts made! It seemed they had them printed within minutes!! Harrigan told the Raiders management at halftime to get them printed up ASAP and he would ensure the rest. Che...

Was it called Pinto before it was called Solo or was that a different drink altogether? From memory it was the same.

Re: New coach.. Who should we target?

BBQ at Wayne's World....minus the BBQ sadly.
I just pray that Darius was tucked in at a reasonable hour :pray: and burped adequately before nighny-nighs. He gets irratable otherwise and a real handful.

Re: New coach.. Who should we target?

I don't know if Griffin would be good for us or not, but I do know he is making it crystal clear what sort of bloke Gould is, for anyone who doubted. Seibold is going to the Broncos so don't even bother. Bennett, no thanks. Not sure what's left. What's wrong with Bennett??? Proven winner/legend, at...

Cleary to Penrith. Barrett to Tigers.
Discuss
If Cleary goes to Penrith, so be it. As long as we get some sort of compensation if he leaves early.
As for Barrett, hopefully he never sets foot at Concord- he is hopeless. Maguire or Toovey will do.

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

Farah has been excellent for our team. Without him we would be out of contention by now. More than happy to have Robbie playing on here next year. By all means give Liddle every chance to make the 9 his own next season but there are no guarantees with him body-wise and Robbie is the best option we ...
