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: Knights folk still rising high for their man Alex

26 Nov 2014

There were a number of rugby league topics worthy of comment in the past week. These included Shane Flanagan’s blunt refusal to discuss the ASADA aftermath, a newspaper poll showing that fans don’t rate the NRL heads of state, and news that there is likely to be a serious bid for a second New Zealand […]

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 […]

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

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

29 Oct 2014

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 […]
