I have been a Greg Bird fan for much of his career, but no more. He has lost me as an admirer, most probably forever.
It has been another gloomy week for rugby league headlines ranging from Adam Reynolds’ non-concussion, the late and cheap shots on Johnathan Thurston, some long-term injuries to star players, and Martin Kennedy’s infraction notice for alleged use of a banned substance.
The Dragons are at sixes and sevens. By that, I mean their 2015 prospects hinge squarely on how their halves pairing of Benji Marshall and Gareth Widdop combine in the next few weeks.
My brother-in-law is a keen Manly fan. I have told him constantly he is an ordinary judge when it comes to football, but he did marry my sister, so he’s not a a totally bad judge.
Oh, come on David. As head honcho, you were perfectly at liberty to ride into the Gold Coast and ‘save’ the teetering Titans.
Let’s just say I am a young Manly Sea Eagles fan getting seriously excited about my team as it fine-tunes preparations for season 2015.
