@watersider Good on you.
But sadly with only a few exceptions this whole forum is an embarrassment particularly after a loss.
I’m sticking with what I posted in the off season.
Jacob Liddle and Tom Mikaele are future Rep players.
And when is this nonsense about Liddle being injury prone going to stop. He had a double shoulder reconstruction at the age of 20, of course with his slight build it was going to take time to regain strength.
And as for this year he hurt his ankle in ROUND ONE.
How’s he injury-prone ?
@willow Not Exactly……… My understanding of the Tedesco balls up at the Dogs had very little to do with McDonnell.
My understanding is and was Tedesco, Moses and Woods were offered to the Dogs as a package, Hasler said no to Moses. Deal off.
Meanwhile put over at Bondi Junction Minichiello who was in charge of recruitment for that week was promising Tedesco rivers of gold.
End of story.
Once again as I read some of the comments re this thread it just verifies how stupid and ill-informed many of the posters are.
I think McDonnell might have been quite happy to part company with the Bulldogs as they set out to self-implode AGAIN, with Dean Pay resigned only a few months back and now to be replaced at season’s end with Justin Holbrook. By the way I think you all might find that when McDonnell left last time he had already lined up the job at the Dogs.
Also I was always of the belief that McDonnell was our leg into Keebra Park.
@krayola Waqa Blake is a gifted footballer, but he is bone idle, the majority of his games you wouldn’t even know he was on the field.
And if Eels fans think that Brad Arthur with his spitting and screaming is going to get Blake to be more involved well, Good Luck.
@weststigerman Bro he lost the weight at the Dragons and decided to get an education.
I’m convinced he has something still to offer, If Maguire is such a great coach which I personally doubt, he has got to get the best out of Packer.
Russ has a contract, I’ll bet he has already planned his post NRL career,
His days with the Warriors were his best, he was mean and his opposition were genuinely scared of him.
@OzLuke Do you honestly think that Packer cares?
This is the contract that he’s waited for all his NRL career.
At the Warriors and Dragons very ordinary money, Cleary offers him 4 years at 650k he has a signed contract and couldn’t give a stuff. And I don’t totally blame him.
I posted the other day I think Maguire behaviour the last few rounds has been erratic. Maguire had Packer playing off the bench at the start of the season and he was adding something to the teams performance each week, puts him back in the starting side and he becomes RS.
Am I the only one the world who can see what’s happened to Packer’s NRL career, since he lost a ton of weight and became educated he has never been the same player, I want the, “Old Russ”, back when he was a fat thug came off the bench for 20 to 30 minutes and put the fear of God in the opposition.
