League is back but please, spare us the excuses

League is back but please, spare us the excuses

2 days ago

The off-season is a necessary evil away from rugby league but I guess everyone needs time to re-charge their football batteries. This weekend, we will be entertained by the Auckland Nines. Not really my cup of tea but the best aspect is that we should see a number of future NRL stars given an early […]

The day Ricky Stuart extracted Australia from a sticky predicament

The day Ricky Stuart extracted Australia from a sticky predicament

11 Dec 2014

Down through the years, rugby league has produced all manner of grand comebacks. But none was more dramatic than Australia’s stunning back-from-the-dead effort against Great Britain in the Second Test of the 1990 Kangaroo tour. With only seconds remaining, Bob Fulton’s men faced the possibility of a rare Ashes loss to Mal Reilly’s Poms, trailing […]

PRENTICE: Bronco Boyd could prove to be null and void

12 Nov 2014

Wayne Bennett says Darius Boyd is joining the Brisbane Broncos “without any question marks.” I’m not sure I agree with the veteran mentor on that one – there seems to be a clipboard full of questions that will scream out for answers in 2015. Here’s just a few of them, and by no means is […]

Sheens taking a huge gamble with Papalii at prop

Sheens taking a huge gamble with Papalii at prop

6 Nov 2014

I have been a Tim Sheens fan throughout his coaching career but the veteran coach has me scratching my head as you read this. Choosing Josh Papalii as a starting prop for Australia in this weekend’s important Four Nations clash with Samoa beggars belief – his contribution against England last Sunday was negligible. He made […]
