Be very surprised if we are not back to lockdown mode within two weeks. The spread is starting to get some speed up here in NSW and I really don’t know how the can pull it back without a lockdown. Without a vaccine and that is probably a year away at best we are going to be in and out of lockdowns for ages.

Should of moved it to Qld when they had the chance

They may try and move the clubs out of NSW if it gets bad. Same as the Mexicans did with the AFL.

Plans in place if it gets to that point apparently

Wonder how many NRL-level stadia there are in NT.

Or here’s a novel idea - ship the whole thing over to New Zealand, like the opposite of what the Warriors just had.

A very good option IMO

Ye ole Game manager blaaaaaaaaaaah cliche…

How about we just recruit blokes who run harder and tackle harder than the opposition for 80mins week in week out…

I don’t care who they are…

All the best teams win because they have good game managers though. We struggle to gain momentum after we have lost it and we struggle to put teams away. Both goes down to - guess what - game management.

Rubbish

Tell that to Cameron Smith, Cooper Cronk, Mitchell Moses, Josh Hodgson, Nathan Cleary etc etc. all these good teams have guys that kick deep into corners, turn the opposition around, find repeat sets, make the right passes and the right kicks at critical times. That’s game management and that’s something we lack

Of course it’s backed up by those guys who run Hard and tackle hard but you need both, you need your halves taking control of a game.

You only have to look at the recent Storm/Rorters game…it was a mistake-a-thon for most of the game…no one from either team managed that game…what it did have is 2 teams with strike power, speed and desire to turn up for your mate…

Had it been game managed by either team it would never gone to Golden point…

The top teams control a game by the whole TEAM managing the game…not 1 or 2 individuals…

Now look at Manly where I’m told by Coops and the crew that DCE is one of the best ‘game managers’ in the business who haven’t fired a shot since Turbo and Walker went down and just had 30 put on them by the Dragons…

It’s cool tho… Game Management terminology is cute for the younger generation

It’s cute for the younger generation and also all
The elite coaches and players that win premierships but what do I know 🤷🏻♂️ Just gotta run hard like it’d 1970 😂

Your point is right, the whole team needs to hold the ball and do their job and that will take you a long way to winning games. At the same time, guys like smith, Cronk can turn momentum of games by putting in perfect kicks and executing plays right, or they work off the back of their forward doing their job and force repeat sets etc. that’s game management and whether you like
It or not, it’s incredibly important.

There’s been storm games where Cameron Smith pretty much lead their team around all on his own and did all the big plays on his own as well, one example doesn’t mean anything.

Yep, swap Pearce for Cronk and the chooks win 2 titles .

Yeah I’m with Geo here.
Please go back and check the turning points in the last 2 games. Swap our halves around only! And convince me we win our last two games.

Adam Reynolds or Clearly for Brooks? Pure speculation but I’d back us to win both games.

Surely we make a play at CHN makes a lot of sense for us. A lot of other clubs need back rowers too though hopefully the bloke who said CHN wants to come here is right

We could take him this year, some clubs couldn’t

Good point. You’d think we’d be in a position to offer more than Canberra for sure.

They did get cap compensation for Bateman and we’ve only got Thompson’s money so probably about even

I think we have more than Thompsons money, he wasn’t on minimum wage, Blore come in on minimum wage, so there was some fat already there

I was just thinking we are in our second year of a $650,000 cap reduction for the Robbie Farrah sarga
You know, offering Robbie a job after football
So my question is
Has Robbie taken up a role with the wests Tigers
Have we paid him any money
If not why the hell are we being penalised for something that has never eventuated
If this is the case why don’t the Tigers appeal against the penalty and have the penalty over turned
Surely Vlandies would look at this through different eyes

If your caught in the act of an armed robbery you still get thrown in jail. Pascoe put his hand up and admitted fault, its over.

RCG has turned out a great signing

Playing a lot better than he did the last two years at Penrith. Seems to have gotten his confidence back after breaking his jaw a while ago.

Yeah, he looked a bit gun shy after that. A risky signing that paid off
