The Penns may well be mightier than the sword they brought down on Geoff Toovey’s head yesterday, but the knee-jerk reaction from the club’s faithful could be even more telling for the 68-year-old Manly-Warringah club.
These days, I am pretty selective about the NRL games I want to attend live and in person. I pay for the privilege, but Fox Sports do a damn good job keeping me at home in my comfy armchair.
We will be farewelling at least three Origin ‘bad guys’ tonight, in what looms as perhaps the best Origin finale ever.
Well, here we are, on the cusp of probably the biggest game of the year, and there is much to anticipate even though it’s in pretty much alien territory, Melbourne.
I’ve got a heavy chest Roarers, with lots of rugby league stuff weighing me down. The heaviest burden comes via the bitterly disappointing NSW team announced by Laurie Daley and Co.
It’s not often here on The Roar that a columnist, Roarer or even a fly-by gibberer gives the NRL a big wrap, but headquarters deserve one today.
