DCE or Foran: who should Manly sign if there was only money for one?

DCE or Foran: who should Manly sign if there was only money for one?

5 days ago

There’s nothing better than a good argument about rugby league players and I ran into a doozy at a Four Nations barbecue. About a dozen of us had gathered for the New Zealand vs Australia decider when someone asked: if Manly could re-sign only one of their halves, would they plump for Daly Cherry-Evans or […]

PRENTICE: Bronco Boyd could prove to be null and void

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.

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

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. And they are all here and preparing to play […]

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

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

15 Oct 2014

Jarryd Hayne‘s loss to rugby league leaves a massive void in the code, and I feel really sorry for his lifelong club, the Parramatta Eels. Athletes of his extraordinary ability cannot be replaced overnight but in time, there is every chance Parra will unearth another footballer endowed with a similar skills set. League has the […]
