ARLC Chair Peter V'Landy made a boo boo this morning when addressing the WT controversial loss.
"I'd like to thank Balmain for taking the heat off the Manly jersey issue....."
Reminds me of
John Grant infamously confused his team names during a Kangaroos team announcement, naming Cronulla, the Hawks, and Manly, the Seagulls or Peter Beatie when asked who the Sharks mascot was and he said,
“To be honest, I wouldn’t have a bloody clue, but I’ll know next week,” Beattie replied with a laugh.

On NRL tonight Fa'amanu Brown made a touching tribute to his mother ahead of this weekends Rd 20 clash against the Broncos.
He said that when he was injured his mother worked to keep all the kids housed and fed and now after an epic recovery period he is back playing NRL and the roles are reversed. He loves his mum and will surely be having her name on his wrist as he runs out onto Suncorp Stadium oval.
He seems a real good lad and a very good footballer.

Did everyone enjoy the shouting match between Benny Elias, Braith Anasta and Geoff Toovey on NRL360 tonight.
OMG 4 alfa males shouting and talking over each other like they all just drank a bucket of red bull, what a disgrace.

Who other then.... James Hooper....

THE Wests Tigers were spotted enjoying a couple of well-earned cold drinks at Townsville nightspot The Mad Cow last Sunday night.

We can’t begrudge the Tigers playing group wanting to let off some steam after the complete stitch-up that unfolded in the final minute of the Cowboys loss.

The Tigers have taken a lot of kicks this year – the majority of them due to the way the basket case club is managed – but in this instance the club was completely done over.

What makes the tough biscuit even harder to swallow is the way they remain anchored to the bottom of the NRL ladder in 16th position trying to avoid the wooden spoon.

If they’d rightfully been awarded the two points for the upset of the season then Wests Tigers would have moved into 15th position on 10 points.

It might sound trivial for the high-flying clubs but if it ultimately proves the difference between the Tigers copping the spoon or not then it’s a monumental stuff up.

Good on the Tigers for trying to get on the front foot with the NRL.

But we had a good laugh at demanding transcripts from the bunker.

This is the same club who wouldn’t release the all-encompassing, no-stone-unturned internal review from the end of last season.

Hellloo? Pot, kettle?

BELLAMY’S BIG BID FOR DOUEIHI

THE phone calls were running hot between Melbourne Storm coach Craig Bellamy and Wests Tigers director of football Tim Sheens this week as the Purple Reign were in hot pursuit of outside backs.

These two go back 34 years to when Bellamy was a player at the Canberra Raiders and Sheens arrived as the coach who steered the club to back-to-back premierships in 1989 and 1990.

Ultimately the pair agreed on Wests Tigers winger David Nofoaluma going down to join the Storm’s run into September to gain some exposure to playing in the finals for the first time in his 175-NRL game career.

But that wasn’t before the Storm made a huge pitch to try and land Adam Doueihi on loan for the remainder of the season for the same reason – to gain some exposure to playing in the big end-of-season games.

Sheens was all for the idea before the Tigers management got wind of it and put the kybosh on it.

Plenty of rival clubs were raising an eyebrow at Melbourne’s ruthless pursuit of replacement players prior to the August 1 deadline.

We like the cutthroat approach but can see the flip side argument of why should the struggling clubs release their best talent to help improve the Storm.
