Well you’re probably right that horse racing needs to clean itself up. I just hope and prey we dont want to revert NRL to racing where we shoot everything that breaks a leg

Oh i was hoping you’d be a dissenting voice…it would make my thursdays more lively

Rugby league has always needed more philosophy. cerebrum damnum, ergo sum

They lost me the day they came after squirrel grips. I mean if you cant grab the game by the balls, what chance does a team have?

It’s probably the one guy, a public servant I imagine…

Don’t you be telling me nothing about no correlation vs causation

Finger tackle, god

Even though it’s satire, I’ll bite. You’re wrong in saying there were no dissenting voices as I agree that there were some inconsistencies, but I think they’ll largely get ironed out over a week or two. But where everyone was essentially in agreement was that the 3 send offs should be and always should have been send offs.
In conclusion, send offs good. Sin bins mostly good. The lack of protocols for referees to follow bad

Both rugby codes are in this together, AFL players love a good blouse

Smell each others cologne too

Does the NRL have foreign substance rules?

Peter V'landys takes aim at the media's reporting of the NRL's high tackle purge

At least at Magic Round all the players would have been mingling/watching more games so probably should have been well prepared by Saturday and even more so on Sunday

Lead paint is still a thing isn’t it?

Can the USA help Australian rugby league and rugby union?

Volleyball! It seems so obvious now

Can’t think of any…Snooker?

Wanna stay on the field? Don’t hit a player in the head

Quite right. But as it is we had multiple guys going high with a third then coming in and that’s where we get hit drops and cannon balls

I reckon that the HIA interchange should only be with the same two players. So if you come off and go back on that the guy who replaced you initially comes off

Eight talking points from NRL Round 10

I’d be giving up on the bombs to wingers now. It’s really ineffective across the league as the centres are so quickly up in front shielding their wingers and if their feet are set they don’t get called for a shepherd. The Bronx game was about the only one I watched in it’s entirety this week (haven’t got around to Kayo) but their defensive issues have actually improved, but they just couldn’t get any momentum back after about 20 mins. The possession in that game ended up 65-35 or thereabout after even for the first quarter. Kevie needs to get a few more line drop outs out of his team….

Considering the Ra Ras had a game on it on Saturday last week and had a fair few scrums as well the curators did an amazing job

They’ll at least be competitive against the top 5 over the next month or so, I think. In fact we’ll know Sunday evening just how competitive….

I’ll also add that this is going to get a few lazy tacklers to work on their technique. There’s a few big boppers who are constantly grabbing at guys up and around the head and neck. Now I’ll be unfair and single out Kikau, but that man is a cat in defence and it’s because he has the big man disease of 2021. Unable to bend the knees, bend the hips and hit coming from low to high. It’s how I was trained to tackle and it the most effective as you’re hitting between hips and ribs every time. Less chance for concussion for me, less for the guy I’m trying to hit and mostly effective against the offload. Now of course I’m obviously not a playing specimen (never got paid to be), but a lot of these guys are good at what they do. So I’m sure with a week or two of tackling practice at training they’ll be able to lower the tackle height.
I was going to do an article about the amount of times in a standard game someone’s head gets hit/held/pushed/squeezed, but hoping the crackdown prevents that.

It really did. Because if anything, if they really wanted to, they could have had about 5 on 5 in the Broncos Sea Eagles game

That’s why you aim for the stomach? It’s the place to tackle…
