Re: Lote Tuqiri says he would take pay cut to play rugby league

Well just maybe...his damages claim against ARU revolves around lost income as a result of breach of contract. So if Tuquiri can show his market value in Sydney NRL is only say $200k pa,then if he proves his case he wld be entitled to the "gap" between that & what he was on. If so, he's possibly loo...

Re: Broncos looking to offload fowards

Now that Te'o will be shopping himself around again, I bet he gets a smack in the mouth by a team mate on the field. Something Heighno should have done last year. Im not sure how Teo has stayed in first grade at Broncos..maybe injuries to others has helped him. Not sure where he goes from here,but ...

Re: Ashton Simms (Somebody had to start it!)

Big unit,but has bad hands, doesnt play smart,& doesnt hit hard in attack or defence.
Weve got a couple of these types already..dont need to buy any more

Re: Michael Monaghan

Was a huge fan of MM,& still am...he brings leadership,creativity,a kicking game & commitment,& wld be a perfect foil for Benji's flair.Or at least he did when last in NRL But MM comes with a hefty price tag($250-$300)...& Moltzen looks too promising to discard. Id certainly be chatting with MM over...

Re: Laurie - What't the Fuss?

Big impact,but high error rate(dropped ball,penalties conceeded,positioning in defence & missed tackles)make him a liability.Takes pressure off oppostion too often. Clearly coach Sheens is unable to rectify,& unless something changes Laurie may disappear without trace as early as end September. Wld ...

Re: New man, Stephen Humphreys, in Wests Tigers hot seat

I actually think its all good news...he's setting clear expectations for the club(& Sheens) as a "contender"for top 4/5 every year(something we havent done for 4 yrs),& a vision for playing more home games at LO & CO.This is what we all want. All he needs now is a plan to get there,although easier s...

Gallant

Another really good game from mighty mouse. Two observations..Ray Hadley suggested he was the fastest fullback in the game(Slater/Bowen??),which is quite a compliment. Secondly,I was disappointed in Sheens post match comments where the interviewer focussed on contributions of both Moltzen & gallant,...

Re: Payten

Patten was outstanding today,mainly because his effort & workrate was up there with...Ellis,who happens to do it week in week out.
Not bad for a bloke(Ellis) renowned as a "wide running second rower"(which usually means lazy ,but a try scorer against small backs(see under" Ben Teo")

Re: Rubbish

A win IS a win,& a comprehensive one at that,based around a considerably improved defense that made canberra(like Cowboys,like Souths)look very ordinary. Having said that,we have a lot of awful habits in attack which take the pressure off the oppostion,& which are ingrained. These will tell against ...

Re: Do a Greenburg and get Pearce

He should never have played SOO...Kimmorley showed just how far off the pace Pearce,& Wallace are at top level. Pearce is at best a solid club player,& maybe Brian Smith will develop his skills further,but at this stage overhyped , overrated & overpaid. Not even in the top 10 half backs in the comp....

Re: "Gallant faces career choice"

Gallant has been very impressive in recent weeks(albeit against average opposition),& totally outplayed Bowen yesterday. Seems to have all the attributes of a quality 1st grade full back to me,& importantly can sniff out a try & has the speed to finish it. Cant understand whats missing(apart from a ...

Re: The clean out

Cleanout was overdue,but at this stage weve only signed a winger with a dodgy knee who hasnt played in some time & has probably lost his speed & struggle to play that position again(reflected by $500 sign on fee),an unproven five-eigth with an ongoing alcohol behaviour problem,& a centre/winger who ...
