Ex-front rower, albeit if they played where I lived, I'd still be putting my body thru motions it wasn't built for! Qld Country NRC, Qld Reds, and of course the Wallabies are my teams, plus the Cowboys. Prone to meandering and late night rambles, so possibly not made for articles worth reading! Part time publican, full time Racing Chicken trainer.

Thanks Chris, it was written due to insomnia and nostalgia haha

Let’s celebrate “Dad Monday” rather than Mad Monday

Thanks Paul much appreciated.

Thanks North!

For the professionals this is possibly the only option.
Which is sad both from the point of view of media/society hounding then, and the fact some can’t behave.

Thanks Johnny! Glad you enjoyed it.

Thanks Geoff!

I’ve been lucky enough to have some top contributors to The Roar comment, and somehow missed a lot of them!

Unfortunately weeks out from the RWC, I think your comment still stands, but the die is cast!

Cheika should rest players. Here's why

Thanks Ruggers, and apologies for late reply!

Agree more needs to be done on a local scale.

Unfortunately I live west now and there is no local football team of any code!

Machooka, I missed this comment, apologies!

I agree on us needing a number 8, both then and now! Ahhh but the die is cast!

I missed your last reference with ffs!?

As ridiculous as it sounds, and as disappointed as I am, I thought Australia played ok.

I thought we were much closer then scoreline suggests.

Two of the first tries were against run of play.

NZ were at the fortress.

One or two bounces of ball, earlier, and in a neutral/home venue for NZ, and a drier track, much closer or different result

Bledi hell! Wallabies walloped by brilliant All Blacks

One Eye, to be fair this tactic is taught to TH’s, and taught to loose heads how to combat.

Twisting the LH so he isn’t square is one of first things taught, and binding long so this can’t happen is one of first things taught to LH.

Not saying it’s within the referees rules, but it’s certainly fair in the front row society.

That and beer and pie eating haha

Barrett: Our attack will click and All Blacks will retain the Bledisloe

I was worried at any point Cook or Tedesco could open it up for NSW, thankfully we held out!

Should be a cracker at a neutral venue! I reckon we escaped potential danger situation and having a neutral venue could help us over the line. I’m just happy it’s an exciting series where anyone can win!

Yeah it can get hectic. Golf tournament this weekend so full house!

I’m in Western Qld these days. Little town called Tambo

An outback Queensland publican’s thoughts on Origin

Yeah they were missing a strike centre. Inglis like player would have been helpful. Defence was great

Nick as always a great article.

Question, do you think the tougher competition makes it harder for Southern Hemisphere teams?

Who will be the King in the North in 2019?

I really hope you are wrong Nick, as a short “stocky” bloke who plays in the front row, I prefer union over league because of said positional size.

I think I’ve just worked out my second article for The Roar but!

Why rugby is moving towards league

Yeah get that Rhys, and had come across it with my degree, but had forgotten the term haha

I guess I see resting players who I think are our best (Pocock and Genia) as giving them rest and hopefully finding/continuing good form with some renewed enthusiasm.

The rest of rest because maybe we unearth some players that can do those things, or if not, provide us with spark and grunt.

It is a struggle to be a supporter currently Jonesy!

Thanks Stu…… for reading I guess!

I mentioned all of those elements, but I can’t change them, nor can my hopes for everyone of those issues be covered in one article. Hence why I picked one thing, that I believe could provide a slimmer of hope, and one that could possibly, albeit a slim chance, of happening.

I don’t believe in giving up, so I posted a suggestion.

Can I ask any of your suggestions?

Haha thanks Lano, good to see front rowers stick together even over the inter-web!

Yes I know it may not get any traction, or we will not keep repeating previous mistakes.

But I can hope!

Thanks mzilikazi, glad you enjoyed it.

I just want to see some new blood, as we can’t keep doing the same thing.

As that hasn’t gone well.

I hope that by resting them, we see other players play, to replace them but!

I agree they are out there.

They just need some game time
