Re: Brooks is no good

Is it too late to bring Moses back as half? Channel 7 news just posed the question "Is Moses the Messiah to lead Parra to the promised land?' All I can say is we're doomed to damnation for a long time. You don't reject a Saviour and get off lightly.

Re: Ryan Papenhuyzen

For anyone that missed it, Ryan signed back in May to a three year deal with the storm. http://www.melbournestorm.com.au/news/2017/05/05/storm_sign_exciting_.html He will join them at the end of this season. It will be great to follow his progress over the next few years, but supplying the Melbourne...

Re: 101 Great Rugby League Players

shakey4d, thanks. That is what I was getting at I can't recall Reggie pull of that kind of stunt but I should check out some old videos first. Yet Hayne is not on the list yet and due to sometimes lackadaisical involvement etc. he may not rate in top ten. They should have at least have given him a ...

Re: The Great Grand Final Heist: How Balmain beat the Rabbitohs by laying down

Virtually the whole media had us despised outsiders in 69, and put in the boot big time when we won. Clive Churchill's son wrote that his father came up with a game plan to get Beetson taken out in the Semi-Final that worked to perfection. Each Souths forward goaded him individually until he was sen...

Re: 101 Great Rugby League Players

I consider Benji and Hayne and Slater playing at their best superior to Gasiner, Raper and Langlands. But Hayne goes on holiday on the field some times. My best mate being a mad Dragons supporter would drag me along to many of their games. I consider the list has a bias to Dragon players. I think t...

Re: WT Forget Campbelltown

We've long heard here and on other media of the head butting between the Balmain & Wests camps, but it seems small apples compared to the apparent dysfunctional relationship between Wests Ashfield & Western Suburbs Campbelltown clubs. I have to admit that as a Balmain supporter I am not too familiar...

Re: Gus' idea about concentrating on South West Sydney

The sooner NRL Franchises realise they are the Big Show and stop wasting money on specific junior development areas or non-relevant competitions based on Traditions, the sooner they will flourish. History and Traditions simply cloud the game from growing at the elite level. Those areas are for the ...

Re: Worst refs ever

Not sure if that pass to the touch judge was purely a bad pass, or the player just saw the black/red? orange? figure in his peripheral vision. The officials once wore white or green or red so they were completely dissimilar to the two teams. Common sense seems to have gone out the window in so many ...

Should just stick to tradition. Wests one week, Balmain the next. Bonus is we get rid of the sickly GWS orange.

Re: Getting sick of James Hooper

I really hate to break it to everyone. Go's statement is incorrect. Hooper is right she is delusional. We are not the most supported team in Sydney. Not even the most supported team in Western Sydney. Parramatta is, i stubled across this opinion piece full of FACTs when I was reading up on eels for...

Re: Balmain Tigers Update

There is no doubt that they have a large supporter base so perhaps it is just a lot of shell shocked members returning. I have been meaning to rejoin myself after moving out of the city a few years ago and letting my membership lapse. They could do much more to help themselves but seem pretty inept ...
