I don’t know what it is, but since around 2012 South Sydney have been completely and utterly favored by the referees in nearly every game.
Not for a second do I believe there is some game wide conspiracy to lift them up, however it is bewildering the amount of times they are in trouble and get marched downfield. Take the dragons game. Down 16-0 and then suddenly get a 4-0 penalty count in the space of 8 minutes. 3 of these were for offside, the only offside penalties for the entire game. They then get on a roll, come over the top and win. This happens every time they are in trouble
The Burgess brothers made a living out of dropping the ball and getting a penalty from it
Did you know that Souths 2014 hold the record for the most penalties ever recieved in a season? This is in rugby league history. Very convenient
Beware. It is a roosters scam to sign the bog ordinary elder sibling to get their hands on the younger one.
Have a look at:
Shaquai & Latrell Mitchell
Nat and Egan Butcher
The Morris twins
What do you mean bog average he was in the junior kiwis 2019 play 15 games in lower grades for Rorters had Latrell and Manu in front of him and had a pec injury that has subsequently held him back please wait till he plays before you make stupid statements
Lighten up, I was taking the mickey…
Apart from the Mitchell’s, which of the other sibling sets have one brother significantly better than the other or one that could be described as bog average
About a thousand: Ashton Sims and the other 2. Michael vs George and Robert Jennings. Sam Burgess and the other two. Chris and Ben/Shane Walker, Ben and Marmin Barba. Mitch and James Aubusson, Anthony and Mark Miniciello. Nathan and Jason Cayless. Darrell and Craig Trindall, Dane and Boyd Cordner, Andrew and David Fafita. Liam and Kieran Foran, Turvey Mortimer and his brothers, Mad Dog and Mad Pup McDougall, Luke and Kyle O’Donnell, Junior and Joseph Paulo, Curtis and Bayley Siro (though the latter is coming on).
Lots of bros going around and most who play NRL their bro would have played footy too.
Found out something new today: Isaah Yeo’s father is Justin Yeo who played for Balmain in the 90s. I didn’t know the connection.
If my memory is correct Paul Sironen had a brother that played lower grades at Balmain as well.
Yep older brother, he played first grade for Souths
I thinnkPaul may have actually played against him in his debut game
Interesting comments from the Warrington CEO this morning that they have zero interest in swapping Widdop for ‘that player’
Sounds like they are open to a swap, just not for Norman. Wonder how they’d feel about Josh?
Even Reynolds is better than Norman. It’s a good idea and I hope the club tries it, don’t blame Warrington for not wanting Norman
It would be a decent swap. They are only 2 months apart in age
Honestly Josh would be loved in the ESL, he’d be a cult hero from day 1
The club had ASU listed as 185cm and 89kgs. That’s 2cm shorter and 4kgs lighter then Reece Hoffman, who looked small in his debut
He looks a lot taller and heavier then that in the nsw cup highlights we’ve seen
Pics can be deceiving but those numbers don’t pass the eye test
Yeah from what I’ve read he’s a similar build to Dan Tupou who’s 196cm and 105kgs
He not quiet be those stats but looks closer to that then his listed ones on our website
With rumours Foran may go to Newcastle
Kurt Mann has really turned into a quality 6, I would be trying to acquire his services if that occurs
If he is so great, why the need for Foran? We don’t need more average. Be patient and wait for our next half from the juniors.
After 9 years of no finals Paws I think patience from many fans has run out. I know I’ve just about had enough.
Yeah I’m sorry teddy23, but BE PATIENT or WE NEED TO HAVE PATIENCE are not a phrases that should be used in this forum anymore, ever!
There’s a young kid playing for Leichhardt Wanderers we’ve got our eye on. Good step. Nice pass. Under 9’s I think.
This has been posted before, but as I wrote earlier we need to let the system work . Siza, pace , step, kicking game and kicks goals. The other option is Sezer or Foran. Foran was good prior to him being busted. SeZer doesn’t have that excuse.
Does anyone know who the fullback he sets up in the first few clips is? Moves exactly like Papenhuyzen, it’s not his brother is it?
