I’d love to see Gamble in firsts but Cleary has shown he pretty much prefers to swap like for like. I reckon if Godinet was out, MM would come in before Gamble.
He can't, he's not in the named 19 man squad.

Re: Round 7 spoilers

Unbelievable from the bunker.... Knock ons are ok if your attempting a kick He was clearly intending to kick so if you're allowed to drop kick in general play (and not only when attempting a field goal) then I don't see the problem with it.

Brilliant try from Melbourne - awesome kick Addo-Carr.
Isaako is as slow as a wet week. Lost ground on the Storm left hand side during the try.
You're comparing him to Addo-Carr who is probably the fastest player in the game...

Re: Teddy lost his pace

Man of the match - obviously had a shocker. Yeah - I missed the game but turned the radio on as it finished - think the ABC commentators gave him 3 points? Couple of hundred metres ran and 15 tackles. It was just one of those games where nobody really stood out as an obvious man of the match. Faita...

Re: Teddy lost his pace

I quite enjoyed the game (& I backed the Dogs) despite it not being an attacking spectacle...there was very little stoppages, ball in play was high and even though the dogs really didnt have much with the ball, the Roosters Defence was impressive Yeah I enjoyed it too. While there wasn't a lot of t...

Re: Nofoaluma

Maybe he can switch to left wing in ISP to improve his chances of first grade? Just a thought. 400k+ is a lof of money for a reserve grade winger. Tui's kicking keeps him in first grade. Thompson is a more c complete winger than Nof. So he waits for now. And $800k is a lot for our marquee 5/8 to pl...

Re: Official Team to take on the Newcastle Knights

Just a note to Huth and Rochow - please, please use your foot when playing the ball. They both are getting away with it at the moment - but a really important shot at goal is coming, I can just see it. Rochow is the worst he rarely plays the ball properly. Yeah, I've noticed how How doesn't like us...

Re: Jackson Hastings

One of the guys at work who is really thick with the players at Manly told me that it all started with DCE grabbing and tickling Hasting on the top back of his leg. To which Hastings swang around and abused him, and accusing DCE of unwanted sexy harassment. The altercation in the motel room was whe...

What about Aaron Grey? Played wing mainly at souths but also played Centre often. Hes doing nothing at the sharks.
That's because when they gave him a run in first grade he stank it up badly.

Re: WT Player Retention/Recruitment/Loss List

Here's a question. We are said to have 28 or 29 players in our top 30 squad... yet the squad picture released in the last few days has 31 players??? That's really more of a statement with a bunch of question marks on the end... Whatever the squad picture released was likely included 2nd tier player...

Re: Struggling Parramatta Eels ready to clean out underperforming players at end of 2018, says The Mole

Not for the first time they're paying the price for signing individual players with no semblance of an overall plan. Moses, Hayne and now Paulo. As if one fresh new apple will make the fruit bowl attractive again. I think most things probably look more attractive by contrast when placed next to Jun...

Re: Struggling Parramatta Eels ready to clean out underperforming players at end of 2018, says The Mole

The lack of organisation in attack and lack of resolve in general does not speak well for the coaching. And the tryless games do not say much for Moses. Believe he had two of those for us. He would benefit so much from having a decent, mature halves partner like Benji next to him. Wouldn't matter, ...
