    It's sad how it ended with Nofa, but it is worth mentioning that less than 1% of all players to have played the game since 1908 have scored 100 tries or more. Around 9-10,000 players to have laced on a boot in first grade, and Nofa is #71 on the all-time try-scoring list. It's hard not...

    I agree, he should have definitely kept an eye on him

    No not quite. But you're entitled to an opinion on that as well, even if it is wrong. Have a good night 😊

    You raised a point on your way out, I just responded to that point. Agreeing to disagree is not raising further points while critiquing my analysis at the same time. That's just asking to continue the discussion 🙄

    Look at the video again. Faalogo didn't have the space to deliver a "fully loaded" punch to the face, Williams had 10m to load up and deliver to someone looking the other way, and Flower delivered his 2nd blow to someone unable to defend themselves due to being knocked out already. Faalogo...

    Anasta was directly in front of Faalogo, whereas O'Neill retreated from 2nd marker, and was at least 10 away from Williams. Williams went out of his way to get at O'Neill, Faalogo hit someone right in front of him. Like I said previously, none of these incidents should escape punishment, but...

    I'm looking at the individual acts as a whole (Flower went on to hit Hohaia again when on the ground, and WIlliams attacked someone completely unprepared and unaware he was even in sight), and both Williams and Flower knocked out their opponents. The difference in outcome is often due to the...

    Player movement throughout the year is not uncommon. I would be more inclined to keeping the spot open and assess what the area of need is throughout the first part of the season, and who is available to fill that need. Whoever gets the nod in the 2 and 5 to start the year could both have...

    I would rather cop that than either of the other 2. Anasta wasn't exactly known for his toughness, and he didn't even take a knee. Like I said previously, it's not something that should go without punishment, but it is not comparable to the other 2 incidents.

    And you're entitled to. I just don't think the tap put on Anasta can be compared to a hit from someone coming out of the line and clocking someone like Williams did, or hitting someone when they are already on the ground like Flower did. Each to their own :)

    I'm not one that thinks he should have been rewarded, but to say his hit was up there with what Williams and Flower did is ridiculous imo

    No other clubs are written about like this? Or is it that we notice Tigers articles more than those written about other clubs? I'm not really sure myself, maybe a combination of both.

    Very good point. I do like AD, but he needs to show what he is capable of rather than telling us about it. Leaders let their actions do the talking.

    He took no cheap shot, he expressed the opinion that a Catholic school should be able to enforce Catholic teachings. It's pretty simple really. Almost as simple as the person that can't separate sport and religion.

    I understand the point you're making as to his defence, but it's a lazy analogy. I would expect any religious person to be more passionate about their faith than they are about footy.

    AD was of the belief that a Catholic school should be able to follow Catholic teachings. Again, nothing to do with his footy.

    That's a bit of a cheap shot mate. Not sure what his religious beliefs have to do with his footy 🤦‍♂️

    Yep spot on. I guess every player comes with some level of risk (injury history, form slump, the unknown), and some risks are more prudent to take than others. In the case of Olam and Luai, I believe the potential benefits far outweigh the potential risk. As for off-field qualities...
