Just watched aussie classic.
Puberty Blues.

LOL

80s.
Aussie films.
Aha… atrocious.

Man From Snowy River
Gallipoli

They weren’t all crap

Yeah Gallipoli was good.

Some others off the top of my head:

  • The Castle
  • The Dish
  • The Bank
  • Crackerjack
  • Gettin’ Square
  • Dirty Deeds
  • Crackers
  • Takeaway
  • Chopper
  • Burke & Wills
  • Bad Boy Bubby
  • Babe

Others I still would like to see:

  • Balibo
  • Breaker Morant
  • Romper Stomper
  • Picnic at Hanging Rock
  • Beneath Hill 60

Romper Stomper was great. I believe the bloke who played Davey committed suicide at Newtown station just after the movie came out, and never got to see it do well.
Picnic at Hanging Rock is also great.
Another really good Aussie (I think?) movie from that period is The Bounty, it’s on Stan. Some big name actors in there before they made it big.

Good call on The Bounty!!! Great movie!!! Very young Liam Neeson in it…

Yeah loved it , but I don’t think it is classed as an Australian movie though

Its definitely not listed as an Australian film

Rabbit Proof Fence was very good as well

So where were they training in Brisbane

Valleys traditional home ground was called Neumann Oval but know it is the Allan Border Oval

I highly doubt they trained their

Grange

Neumann Oval (Allan Border Field is at the Grange ) did you see any signs 77

We were tossing up heading down Friday arvo until we got stuck in traffic for a hour

I had 2 kids all over me like a rash so didn’t notice any signs. It was on Bega St at the Grange. My kids play Soccer around the corner but can’t say that I even knew the field was there prior to the day we went.

Of course I should have thought of that , that’s Valley’s JRL fields

Thanks 77

If you play Talau you play him in his position

The minute you start debuting players out of their main position’s you start creating problems for them , kids need to feel comfortable coming into the NRL or they will get eaten alive at this level

I can still remember being put into a A Grade QRL trial against Central Highlands up at Barcaldine and hadn’t played centre since I was 11 in a one off game …no warning …nothing

I even had to ask my centre partner where I had to stand for receiving a kick off lol

It stuffs with your head trust me

5/8 then. Poor Benji

In attack a running 6 and centre aren’t that different

Problem is defensively as you know , at 6 you get protection as long as your edge defence isn’t exposed and your not stretched to the eyeballs

Centre you need to be able to read the attack and what they are about to throw at you and at what angle it’s coming at and pick the decoy

Bloody hard , and then you have the idiot outside of you who at times might as well be picking flowers
