PRENTICE: Time to ban league’s twits once and for all

PRENTICE: Time to ban league’s twits once and for all

3 days ago

Plenty has happened in rugby league over the past couple of weeks, with the Four Nations tossing up some interesting games and results, a large amount of player movement, and yet another mindless act from a player involving a mobile phone or computer. At the time when rugby union wrestled with the Kurtley Beale issue […]

PRENTICE: Four Nations will prove to be a winner on the field

PRENTICE: Four Nations will prove to be a winner on the field

22 Oct 2014

Someone told me there’s a Four Nations rugby league Test series starting this weekend. Fair dinkum? I know many Roarers think I’m bordering on prehistoric, but last time I looked, I wasn’t dwelling in a cave. Four Nations – Australia, New Zealand, Great Britain and Samoa.

Jarryd Hayne can fly high in the rarefied air of the NFL

Jarryd Hayne can fly high in the rarefied air of the NFL

Emotion aside, this wasn’t the greatest decider we’ll see, but the better team triumphed and richly deserves all the accolades that accompany Souths’ 21st first-grade title. […]

PRENTICE: Souths will douse their title drought with champagne

1 Oct 2014

I’ve got a few grand final tips wrong in my time but not this one – Souths will smash the choker’s tag, end their 43-year drought and trounce Canterbury by 16 points. Sunday night’s title decider will start out tighter than a video ref’s squinty eye and finish with a red-and-green explosion that would put […]

Prowling Panthers to defy the odds yet again

Prowling Panthers to defy the odds yet again

24 Sep 2014

I’m siding with Bulldogs coach Des Hasler – it’s hard to believe the Penrith Panthers are not favourites in the lead-up to Saturday’s preliminary final at ANZ Stadium. Ivan Cleary’s men beat Canterbury in their two meetings this year and returning fresh and confident after a week off from finals action, I think they are […]
