AJ watches far too much sport. When he's not watching it, he's reading about it. When he's not reading about it, he's writing about it and when he's not writing about it, he's talking about it on the podcast ‘A Sporting Discussion’. Rugby league has AJ's heart, but he loves to give space to the sports that the mainstream forgets - he’ll never rest until Australian baseball gets the coverage it deserves! He’s always game for a debate in the comments section or on twitter @AJMithen - but you’d best come prepared!

It’s only fair. I might slide Taukeiaho just ahead of the Mounties boys

Siosiua Taukeiaho at 44 is an absolute disgrace Scott. I’m drafting an angry letter to the editor this instant!!

It’s the greatest! Especially When you relax and just accept you’ll never know WTF is happening.

That after match sounds a bit more lively than mini doughnuts and a cup of tea 😂

I agree 100% John. It takes an awful lot for a team to turn that around, but it certainly can happen- look at Geelong, and the Roosters too!

The Kabaddi crew are brutal in the comments sections!

We’d moved to Melbourne in 1990 Duncan- rugby league might as well have been Kabaddi.

Don’t forget less than 20 or so minutes later Joey was saying the bunker should intervene to overturn a decision about another knock on…

Joey's ref criticism is absurd

Ay- don’t forget I was 8 tips back and dead last a month ago before I started taking this seriously! I could take you all if I felt like it!

Don’t take it personally Duncan- the Storm are an incredible team, but the Roosters are a phenomenal team.

You never fail to entertain Steve. I love your posts!

Canberra and South Sydney must stay cool if they want to win

It bugs me Mango Man, because they’ve al forgotten more about rugby league than most of us will know. They’re incredibly perceptive about the game and can break things down for the viewer… but they choose the easy road of ref bashing and sooking. Imagine how good watching a game of league could be if they stuck to what was in front of them…

Great post Peter. People aren’t as wary of streaming services now as they were even two years ago. Kayo has something like 350,000 users, Netflix into the millions. It’s part of the everyday experience in the home and the NRL would be mad not to make more of this.

Not sure about how popular a move that would be kk! But I will back 100% a public vote (every two years) to select a commentary team…

Talking more about game broadcast/promotion requirements for the rights holders in that last line there Madrid. I’ve actually got no real beef with a broadcaster having a strong influence on locations/schedules etc, that’s a commercial reality and we can yell all we want but that’s life.
