Thurston had that ability to go through the line without so much as a hand laid on him, he bambozled players constantly. Cronk was good, but just never had the intangibles that sets a player into the stratosphere.

Sorry universe, but Cooper Cronk is superior to Johnathan Thurston

Even after a couple of years off…

Their couple name could be Kearton or Theary! Or even Thursty….

Is that partly because of the prognosis for the Broncos?

Yeah but then if you put Farrah into the Storm, then they still don’t win but we all get a laugh

You mean Jobs on Nine?

Reckon that’s why Smith is singlehandedly destroying rugby league?

2015 was my favourite NRL season (I’ve only watched about 20). It proved that adlib footy still had a place in the game. Sure we had to watch the Broncos every Friday night, but my god they were fun to watch

God, it was a good game

It’s probably time that the NRL actually protected the player on the ground. This is just a symptom of the underlying issues that continue to pervade the sport. How many times do we see a player put a shoulder into the prone man on the ground?

“approaching” ? He’s approached it, run it over and made off with it’s sister

Are the All Blacks staring into the abyss?

The referees tend to allow it because so many players clear out well past what is allowable, thus creating a much bigger ruck area than what is really allowed

Wish the Wallabies would stop going to Eden Park in that case…

Which rugby nation will be the best in the world by 2023?

NSW warned over Cordner concussion

Mate, I’m married. So I can definitely handle being questioned on a sports opinion website…. 😂

NSW warned over Cordner concussion

When even Gus Gould has questioned whether he should retire me thinks he needs to consider it

Thankyou for pointing this out! In the games I’ve watched of the Panters this year, it always seemed like Luai was the man running the show and providing the real spark. Sure Cleary can kick with a heap of variety, but that’s really his only meal ticket

Nathan Cleary's protected status in the NSW side has become embarrassing

I think it could be disastrous if they narrowly win and all is forgiven

Rugby league at it’s core is a simple game. Forwards have to run it straight and hard. It’s a cornerstone

Why NSW lost Game 1 and how to fix it

I hope that the number reported is incorrect. But yes, if it’s 5 he should have been sitting out for a long time. My concern is that he looks to have had 3 head knocks in his last 3 games. Even if they haven’t resulted in failing the HIA, one has to wonder how seriously we can take the protocols

Brad Fittler considers change for Origin II

I hear Cordner has had 5 head injuries this year. That’s a shocking amount and if he is allowed to play you really have to start asking questions if the HIA protocols are sufficient.

He plays the media like a fiddle. The players love him cause they know he gets the attention off them

Queensland's win proves Bennett factor

Some of his players selected aren’t even in the best 13 at his club. It was fantastic

Queensland's win proves Bennett factor

It’s only perceived by the media surely?

I’m more annoyed that they knocked out the Brewers…
