I am what’s wrong with NRL crowds

I am what’s wrong with NRL crowds

6 days ago

Forgive me footy fans, for I have sinned. I only attended two NRL games this year, and I didn’t enjoy either of them. I have a valid excuse, though. Being a Canberra Raiders fan absolutely blows at the moment. Particularly when you’re watching your team wave Manly past like they’re directing traffic at a rain-sodden […]

JT and the Cowboys are Thursty for glory

JT and the Cowboys are Thursty for glory

10 Sep 2014

At the midway point of the NRL season, the bottom-eight bound North Queensland Cowboys looked as likely to feature come September as I did to be dating Katy Perry. The Cowboys are now three wins away from the grand final, and KP is two months from a tour of Australia. If you believe in miracles […]

If you’re still waiting for the Penrith Panthers to curl up on a couch and sleep through the cold months, you really should lay off the catnip.

Ricky overwhelmed as the Raiders unravel

Ricky overwhelmed as the Raiders unravel

20 Aug 2014

Being the optimistic, understanding type, I’ve been willing to give Ricky Stuart until mid-2015 to reverse the fortunes of the Canberra Raiders. After witnessing last weekend’s post-match presser, I’m no longer certain he’ll make it that far. As an amateur workplace psychologist, I’ve witnessed several senior colleagues slowly crumble under the weight of relentless pressure […]

Seven ways to fix the NRL

Seven ways to fix the NRL

13 Aug 2014

There’s no surer sign that a hard-nosed reporter is buckling under the grind of a long NRL season than writing a listicle – and this isn’t the first time I’ve buckled. But rugby league reporters are fans as well – most of us, anyway – and every year we’re confronted with the same relentless barrage […]
