There were a couple of mentions about Harry Grant in this thread. I am also looking forward to seeing how he goes but what if he is too good? It will be a kick in the guts if he gets us to the semi’s and then he goes back to Melbourne.

Im still not excited about Liddle

First game the 1977 Amco Cup final with dad. Lidcombe Oval tragic till 1987. I remember how giant the players were as you ran onto the field at fulltime. The smell of the grass and liniment as you pattted Dallas, Bruiser on the back.
Games you couldnt get to you listened to on the radio. When Wests werent on you waited for scores around the ground.

Orana Park seeing the helicopter land after the game to pick up the game footage for the news that night.
Great days!!!

The smell of the wet grass and mud in that really wet winter of 89 at Orana is still with me. They used a helicopter to dry the field before the games that year. The soggy steak sandwiches were great.

Hey Gallagher, Remember the drop outs at that time. Rarely went 15 metres 🙂

If you think Harry T will be our saviour think again. He’s only in it for himself. He is a business man and unless he gets something in return he will keep his 1.5 metres away.
He’s no Nick Politis, Russell Crowe etc.

Are we not one of the more financially viable teams In the comp now? 🤨

All a guess for us fans as they don’t release any figures. The did release a graph showing we made a loss last year though.

Oh right, I thought there was mention of us being one of the few teams to turn a profit year on year for the last few seasons. I guess no one knows how this situation will affect clubs individually anyway.

Yeah our profitability was repeated over and over on here but it wasn’t the case. I reckon we’ll need WA to come to the party big time.

Between Harry T and our Chair, hopefully they can sort things out if it comes to that.

Harry T is a myth.

Because of Covid-19 they should finish the season now. We made the top 4!!! That’s an improvement in my eyes. Who would have picked us for that??

@tig_prmz said in Benji backs Brooks:

he needs to take risks, throw the long pass, run across the field a bit, attempt 40/20s and keep his head in the game at all times.

I agree. I’d rather see him chqance his arm and get it wrong at times than to go missing.

We have seen the best of Brooks. Just a halfback. Nothing great.

Shane, just a halfback these days is a player in demand. There is a lack of quality in this position generally across the NRL and Brooks is right up there being one of the best. In fact, if he played for the Roosters that elusive NSW jumper may not be so elusive.

I respectfully disagree. The hype about this guy needs to stop. He isn’t the worst halfback in the comp but isn’t anywhere near as good as people keep saying. For years people have been saying that next year we will see Brooks break out. For years I’ve been saying he already has. This is him at his best. A halfback that will play the odd good game. I’ve stopped saying I hope he proves me wrong because he won’t.

I’m with you.
He’s certainly not terrible but I can’t remember the last time he produced something to win us a game at the death like the really good halves.

There’s no point mate. The Brooks haters will always move the goalposts on you so they don’t have to acknowledge that he’s good. I once had an argument on here with someone who insisted he doesn’t get involved enough. I pointed out that Brooks was at the time leading the NRL “player in support” statistic, by a mile, and he said the stat wasn’t valid. They see what they want to see, unfortunately.

Hate is a strong word. I don’t hate the guy. I just believe that he isn’t what he is made out to be.
