@weststigers there’s a whole lot of white privilege going on within Australia. It’s a sad state of affairs. Some see it, most don’t, but then, most of us are white. Ignorance to it is abundant.

RE: The National Anthem
@Kev all those things you mention are valid, but monetary things. Australia day and a national anthem are distinctly different. It’s a shame so many whites can’t get a handle on the fact that the status quo is not all inclusive. Indigenous people are very much of the opposite opinion. Classic case of the vast white majority not willing to listen. I mean really listen. When in actual fact a change to both of these things wouldn’t be an issue at all.
RE: James Roberts released by Broncos, signs with Rabbitohs in an immediate mid-season NRL switch
@Sco77y James Roberts has promised a lot for a long time. Hasn’t really delivered though.
RE: Congrats to Matterson
Really pleased that Matto gets the official recognition of being the next in-line for Origin forwards.
I think we can all agree that Chrichton only got the nod because he was there last year.
It both validates Matto’s 2019 form and his decision to leave Roosters to get more starting minutes and more responsibility.
A rare occasion where a move to the Tigers has paid dividends for a player!
Tongue in cheek? Plenty of dudes went to another level here after moving from another club -
Farah second stint
Elford and Whatuira
Twal and Aloiai; Eisenhuth
And that’s obviously not including the blokes we debuted or scouted ourselves.
Tuqiri is drawing an extremely long bow
When at the Broncos he was arguably athletically the best winger in the game …better than Wendell
Same with Gavet, Richards, MCK, Utai and Red. Well, Gavet was a beast off the bench, but he got the boot for being terribly loose with his commitment to both the club and his team mates didn’t he? Richards, scored that try in 05 and was a great kicker but that’s it. MCK has also really only had 10 seconds worthy of being remembered and one game where I think he scored 4. Utai was much better at the dogs and Keith was average for years.
RE: Kids Footy
Probably the most mixed I’ve been watching my sons side play
They beat a side they haven’t beaten 38-22 absolutely amazing stuff
But arguably the scariest moment I’ve seen in a junior footy game
We got a penalty and should have kicked for touch with about 8 minutes left but the young bloke decided to take a quick tap and copped a really good hit looked legal …and the player was at first laying on the ground and then started writhing clutching his throat
Turns out it was a hit to the larynx and muscle went into spasm which closed up the airway
Fortunately he is fine …extremely scary stuff
Whoa!!! That really is frightening stuff.
My under 10s Ormeau Shearer has just had his first win of the season. Played well - trackled strongly and ran straight. There really are some little super stars on show amongst the Juniors nowadays. Burleigh are leading the way in our comp. Beaten us twice comfortably and Helensvale are pretty good too. Looking forward to next week. Rusty jnr has just returned with his new hair cut after the game. M.O.M prize from a beastly performance a few weeks back. I’m wondering if others receive similar rewards for their efforts.
I have seen it once before in a BRL game between Norths and Valleys and involved Mark Graham and Wally Lewis
If you googled it you’d probably see footage …from memory Lewis came in to tackle Graham …Graham raised forearm hit Lewis in the throat
He got Lewis? Play on…
