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

Would not want any of them except Gutherson... The rest can go to hell in a basket for all i care... Here, Here!!!!!! Seriously? I would take Brad Takairangi, Manu Mau for instance. Bevan French (yea not happening) or George Jennings would be good. But I wouldn't be opening the bank account for the...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Ross has been making some bad errors hes not an upgrade I can’t believe anyone would see Ross as an upgrade.... our wingers aren’t champions, but they’re doing their jobs. Ross is an average player at best. I'm with you. I can't even see why its a discussion point. Do we really need a "depth" back ...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Gildart is very good young center who would improve out of sight in the NRL. He is deceptively strong and very quick....would not take him much on salary to come over as he would only be on about £50k max in the Super League. On field is no problem. I think it's the off seasons, the week to week tr...

Re: Farah Axed

I get some people didn't like the guy but some of the stuff being written about Farah is just hysterical. His biggest "fault" seems to be he gave a crap and had to be dynamited out of a club that others were only too happy to leave. It's a bit much blaming him for the post-2011 malaise and ignoring...

Re: Farah Axed

He actually should try to move to Parra or Manly as they need a good dummy spitting coach ! It must be soul destroying the realisation that your ego and self worth are a figment of your own imagination .... I think Parra could actually use him. Their team has tanked and a boom hooker is a good idea...

Re: Father-son Cleary reunion will have to wait with Brooks firing for Tigers

Brooks played some 5/8 when he was younger there was an article about it before I think Brooks and Cleary will work and in saying that I think it will work better then Cleary and Maloney ...Maloney is the man at Penrith now and he would be great with Tyrone May Bingo. Brooks + Cleary would be aweso...

Re: NRL team stats, where are we?

I think it does say we need some more "talent" or star power if we are to make the finals.

Yes we have a group of players playing well above average. But if we don't put some speed on our outer backs, we won't make the 4.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Doesn't make sense for Newcastle to release Ross given their limited back depth. He is arguably their best outside back (ahead of SKD, Mata'utia and Sio) with Moga out for the season. After that it's Cory Denniss maybe? Grim. If they were to release Ross they'd have to be replacing him with a bette...

NRL team stats, where are we?

I was looking at NRL.com and our stats. essentially we don't rate. https://www.nrl.com/stats/ For individual: We should have players rating higher as a top 4 team. Brooks is in the top 5 for a few categories, Thompson for 1 as well as Marsters. But the only individual category we rate first in is in...

My daughter is tuned in to the twittersphere and says there is chatter about a swap between Tim Grant and Nathan Ross. Make of it what you will. Sorry if this is old news! We keep being tied to Nathan Ross will be interesting if he comes. He isn’t an obvious step up from anything we already have. W...

Re: Auburn Warriors to fold due to failed Mehajer sponsorship

We need a stronger ICAC to investigate matters like what has been reported. Salim is not the only Councillor on Auburn council to act in this way, he just promoted himself which lead to people asking questions. Others do the same but kept their heads down. About 30 years ago I heard about funny goi...

Just out of curiosity, everybody says Luke isn't ready for origin and Maloney should be #7 for the Blues. But what does Brooks have to do to deserve an origin call-up?
Outbeat Maloney! Brooks is doing good but Maloney is killing it.

Dosen't matter anyway, it will be Mitchell Pearce again.

Re: What to do with Grubby?

JR will and should be on the bench. He was lacking match fitness but he will get that back. I wasn't his biggest fan when he was at the dogs but he is certainly a player when fit, that can produce a lot more than Godinet or Killer on the park. If we were 4 down with 10 to go I would rather him comi...

Re: Nathan who?

I love Brooks form and where his playing is going. For some reason we have put our speed in our Halves not our wingers. Move Reynolds to center and Kevie to the wing/backup fullback. We need Center depth and Reynolds would add mongrel to a tough pack. Marshall is 34 and I reckon he only wants a swan...
