Why are John Cartwright’s Titans so inept?

Why are John Cartwright's Titans so inept?

26 Aug 2013

This headline isn’t just because I tipped the Titans and therefore fell further behind in my tipping comp. The Warriors deserved their win. They looked more likely throughout – which brings me to the main point of all this. There’s less than two minutes left on the clock, the Warriors leading 24-22 and New Zealand […]

Goodbye Wests Tigers, hello West Coast Tigers?

Goodbye Wests Tigers, hello West Coast Tigers?

22 Aug 2013

2013 has seen a gigantic influx of resources flooding rugby league, which demand proactivity and clarity from our new administrators. We need no more than seven teams in Sydney to begin with, allowing for Perth and another Brisbane team to enter in 2018. The easy way to solve this is by asking which teams have […]

Wrestle in the tackle is NRL's biggest issue

26 Jul 2013

I’ve been upset the past few weeks. I really thought Dave Smith and the ARL Commission’s goal of 20,000 average attendance within five years was achievable. That was at the start of the season.

Forgivable due to the reputation of the player involved. 2. Questionable at the time, poor in hindsight and 3. Wrong at the time and continuing to […]

Goodbye Benji, hello Sonny

Goodbye Benji, hello Sonny

5 Jul 2013

Wests Tigers must do the right thing and let Benji Marshall leave, especially given the optimism surrounding the club’s halfback-in-waiting, Luke Brooks. Ian Schubert’s absurd intransigence with regard to the second-tier cap is the only thing keeping Brooks from the NRL right now. Yes, I’d love to keep a marquee player like Marshall in the […]

Telling the truth about State of Origin game 2

Telling the truth about State of Origin game 2

27 Jun 2013

I’ve often stated here that the only difference between NSW and Queensland over the last seven series has been class. Forget motivation, “spirit” or “will to win”. The team with the most talent – not desire – usually wins the premiership (the existence of a salary cap proves this point) and it is no different […]
