"Why would the North Queensland Cowboys sack a hard-edged, authoritarian, take-no-nonsense coach in Paul Green and replace him with a virtual carbon copy?
The logic of it is so stupid only the most easily-led, naive types would fall for it."
What a hypocrite. This description fits 90% of the content Hooper writes… Apart from this White Knighting effort.
Ivan bent us over, no doubt about it. A third of the cap in 3-4 ordinary players. I think we have the core of a quality group and if we can spend the $2.5-3m wisely once Mbye, Reynolds, Packer etc move on, there will be greener pastures. I hate continually looking forward to lock in the year we will turn it all around, but at this stage I see continued improvement next year and a much better side in 2022.
Worst part is he gonna win Comp this year.!
Imagine an Eels - Panthers GF. I wouldn’t know what to do.
Like most forum members I have never played NRL. Daley won 3 Grand Finals, captained NSW and Australia and with Ricky Stuart formed one of the great halves combinations. Stuart might not be the nicest human but his will to win as player our team could only dream of. Had injections in his groin at half time in front of team mates to get back on the field.
He was also looking for a Job at the Tigers last season but was not allowed with his gambling media interests, the NRL said can’t do both.
Shame we missed out here. Our halves could’ve used some mentoring. Brooks has really lost out in this department at our club over the years, even in the players he’s had around him - no one to really lead the way as he was adapting to first grade.
Hmmm, what great insights, why didn’t any of us and others notice this previously.
Daley has just discovered this forum
It’s 100% like one of those guys logged in here and is publishing our insights. Feeling represented!
If AD is in doubt I would put Benji to FB if AD is playing play him 5/8 Packer and Eiso should be back the new kid from the Rorters should get a run put him in the Centres Tommy T defence is still a bit suss but can stay on the wing Walters to the bench
I think Madge is getting back to his old tricks.
Doueihi played that second half with an hamstring injury.
When Madge was asked if Doueihi is injuried he said what injury? You saw that break he made.
Is Madge back to pushing our players to play injured?
It was convenient with Twal as Eiso was in form and Mikale was replaced by Packer but who do we honestly have to cover Talau and Doueihi who are both playing injured.
Yep I was thinking the exact same thing.
Yeah also thought the same. His response in the presser was a little uncertain and not very convincing. Hopefully not the case.
