Long time rugby league supporter and sports fan generally. My football playing days were characterised by a deceptive lack of pace, very late tackles, and unexpected chip kicks coming off our own line.

Vlandys should make the call and get the second Brisbane team going while he’s at it

Return of mid-year Origin, Magic Round and regional games all confirmed in NRL 2021 draw

NRL will be desperate to get the Broncos back into the top 4

We’re you sober?

Nat, are you being sarcastic?

I haven’t referred to my match score predicter yet, but what I can tell you, based on the Broncos’ roster, coach and draw, is that they must be one of the early favorites for the spoon again this year. The only thing that may save them from this result is the fact that Darius has retired.

Agree. I’m even making the trip up, after missing out this year.

See you there.

I’ll be starting at the Pineapple and finishing at the Caxton.

We haven’t stopped yet 😊

Nah. They should be playing there.

I think that the NRL has missed an opportunity here with bush footy.

Yeah, six games sounds good, but given the rough year all sports had in 2020, the NRL could have gone harder next year to revive as much interest in the game as possible.

There’s only seven teams playing these six games.

Maybe it would be better if each team gave up one home match, and there were eight games involving all sixteen clubs. Apart from the NSW regional centers, these games could also be played in another NZ city for the Warriors, and also in QLD country centers.

Good thought but probably won’t deliver the $$$ that Brisbane will.

I’m beginning to get concerned about you John

What genius booked Tiny Tim?

Preferably with Hunt standing next to him

Sorry universe, but Cooper Cronk is superior to Johnathan Thurston

Careful John. It’s a trick question.

'S--t, who cares?' Paul Gallen says there's no pressure on him at all ahead of fight with Mark Hunt

This fight has about as much credibility as the old world championship wrestling.

Cronk was a conductor. Thurston was a composer.

Good article mate. Created plenty of discussion.

I’d be happy to swap Norman and Hunt for Thurston and Cronk

I charge by the hour

A great centre pairing John

It was always a set up to get rid of Norths

The day that Johns joined the likes of Gasnier, Fulton and Churchill was effectively the end of the “Immortals” concept

Definitely an arranged marriage gone wrong

Rod Reddy could have that effect on the opposition

Must have done something pretty bad to have chosen playing for Manly over being in prison 😊
