For the record it has been FREEZING and hosing rain all day in Melbourne

The Roar's NRL expert tips and predictions: Round 6 - battle for Brisbane, Roosters written off, will Demetriou survive?

Stop it, Geoff 😂

NRL Round 5 Talking Points: For a few clubs it’s getting late early, Jennings shouldn't be in league let alone celebrated

Apologies Andrew – wasn’t going after you, more making a general statement cos I spend too much time on twitter!

This, Geoff – Badger’s bunker calls are specifically explained to the rules and almost always correct. Lots of folks either don’t know the rules properly or just don’t like a female referee, sadly.

Great call andrew.

I was THIS close, Tetley

The Roar's NRL expert tips and predictions, Round 5: Tigers on the hunt for hat-trick, Souths face tough test, Storm rising

Nice one Avry. Fisher is a disgrace, but like most owners all he sees is cash…

Heading for a sad ending: The pending departure of the Athletics in Oakland is a black mark for Major League Baseball

I can’t agree with your second point Panther – these late tries are more the winning team being less interested in defence.

NRL Round 4 Talking Points: A month is done - let’s make some hard calls

Savage has played 27 first grade games across 3 seasons broken up by injury. He’s still learning how it all works, like heaps of young fellas across the comp.

Fair comment Andy- but I’m right 😛

Agree 100% on the reporting pomoz. But until we all stop clicking & sharing it…

Many people forget this, Lizard. Good point

They’re a young team doing young things Steve- but they better get some of the horror errors out of their game or it’s bad times ahead

Nathan Brown actually has a decent rep as an assistant coach Andrew, much like David Furner. It might not have worked out in the head spot but they’re both highly regarded in coaching setups.

I’ve really gone out on a limb saying the Melbourne storm will play finals. Only the brave, Duncan!

NRL Round 4 Talking Points: A month is done - let’s make some hard calls

That struck me too. Another reason to be quiet….

Didn’t mean to single out as a bad thing Horses, just a question I’ve got. Might have phrased it better but I was stuffed with chocolate and rabbit…

Tip of a huge cowboy hat to you as well Tony 😂

NRL Round 4 Talking Points: A month is done - let’s make some hard calls

Nice one Tony – Canberra’s Josh Papalii is on 285 too, so he might get there later this year.

The NRL's 300-game club is hard to get into, but those who have made it definitely deserve the accolades

17,249 was the reported Tony – sold out

NRL Round 3 Talking Points: Blowouts, bad bunnies, and bunker babies are back

Very close second for me. Much as I’d love to I can’t give Canberra game of the week every week 😂

NRL Round 3 Talking Points: Blowouts, bad bunnies, and bunker babies are back

Great point Baz. It caught everyone by surprise the play came back to the middle, didn’t it. Lessons abound!

Yawn

NRL Round 2 Talking Points: Robberies in the north and south, high shots are back and some good losers

I’ve booked my seats Jimmmy, see you there!

That’s Pasami Saulo who they got from the Knights last year, dogs. Another of the good young Raiders forwards no one bothered to look into 😛
