I've tried my hand at everything rugby. My serious playing ceased 40 years ago. My social playing, Fifths with my brothers, finished 30 years ago. I've refed, managed and been a delegate to the QRFSU. I've taught rugby as a school subject to boys and girls and I am still coaching schoolboys with an old mate, Got to loves the 4th's. I agree with the old colonial powers, spread rugby and develop leaders for the future in the community. You don't have to be 1st XV or a rep player to be a leader.

Monaro?

The Wrap: Why SANZAAR must hold Frank Lomani accountable for 'going back for his hat'

Thanks for replying KH. Hope you can enjoy the rest of the season. 👍

The Wrap: Why SANZAAR must hold Frank Lomani accountable for 'going back for his hat'

G’day KH. As a Reds man all I’m going to offer is this… I don’t know Penney. He seems, from a distance, to be a well credentialed coach. But if you start to chop and change coaches, you’ll end up going down the same road the Reds did. Of course that won’t worry me, or too many others I suspect, but stability has been one of the great Crusaders’s strengths.

The Wrap: Why SANZAAR must hold Frank Lomani accountable for 'going back for his hat'

G’day and thanks LP. There are many of us who have made one or two of the points that you have raised, but you have managed to bring them all together in the one article.

My hope and wish is that someone in a position of strength will read this and act positively toward the suggestions.

Vive la difference.

How young are you AA?. You seem to be having trouble understanding/comprehending the things that I and a number of other people write. Sorry if I confuse you.

CONFIRMED: Wallabies land final piece of coaching puzzle as ex-Lion signs on ahead of showpiece event

And attack was a lot smarter, and players took responsibility for their basic skills. There’s plenty that could be learned from the amateur era to improve the professional.

Does Wig1 = Donald Trump? 😂 😂 Sorry W1, it was there for the begging.

Tom Lawton would throw 10,000 every off-season that he wasn’t on an EOYT. At least that’s what I’ve heard and he has to be one of our best line out throwers ever. We’ve also had some of the best line out callers and jumpers in the world. Basic skills! It doesn’t matter whether you talk amateur or professional era, they don’t change. Get winning Aussies involved!

Piru, I know some lullabies.

Super Rugby teams week 9: Beale back for first time in 1494 days, Reds make 6 changes, Wallaby returns for Brumbies

Sadly, that WA door is already open… and it’s called Kurtley (Breezeway) Beale.

What do you think his reaction will be to the new incentive, Kurtley Beale?

Thanks Ken. Glad you noticed. 😊

'Not ideal': Reds star duo cop Super Rugby bans after red cards - but where's the consistency?

Maybe a chance for southerners to take some notice of Harry Wilson rather than just believe what others tell them.

True carnivean. The starting side are specialists, the bench is versatile.

Five things: Lesson Aussie rugby can learn from Kiwis - and why next month will determine whether SR gap has closed

My son and I will be there, as usual. Looking forward to Blyth’s return. Like the look of your back row. Different without McReight, but effective in a different way. A surprise to opponents.

Thanks JN for considering my comment. Understand your point of view re: 4). I don’t think my wish will come true but I do believe changes must be made. I don’t believe all technical changes are for the better and need to be used. Do the NFL have it right by having laptops on the sideline that the ref looks at then inform the crowd of the decision? There are still replays available to the viewers. Not sure how this affects the keyboard warriors.
Thanks again for taking the time.

Enjoy the good natured banter. 👍

Rooster must remodel: Angus Crichton says he'd want to 'dominate' in rugby union - this is what he'd have to change

Anyone else notice how often he smiles when play has stopped? And he won’t cop any nonsense from opposition. There’s a man who really enjoys the game and his role within it. I wish him all the success that can come his way.

'Brutal and violent': The two aspects Reds workhorse wants to fix to take next step towards Wallabies

Yes, 15 stone and a sub 11 second 100m. Caused two of my career, three, concussions in one game. Mind you, there were times when I was able to get the better of him, just not if it relied simply on speed. 😂

Thanks Stewy76. I thought they may have started looking at the NFL, so they didn’t have to change too many letters. 😱 Thanks for setting the record straight. 😂

From the mid- to the end of the 70s, I found Stan to be the hardest player in Brisbane to tackle. I wasn’t tall, fast or heavy, probably shouldn’t have been there. When Stan got the ball out in the open, he was surprisingly fast for his size and had one of the highest knee lifts I’ve ever come across. My technique head on, was to go low, hit around the waist and drive up. Worked on most players but all Stan presented was shin and kneecap, so you’d try, hang on and go for the ride.

Almost as difficult, for the same reasons, was Roy Nerichow. And to round out my top three, Paddy Batch.

You bring back memories KFTD. But it’s OK, I sleep fairly easily these days. 😂 😂 😂

At 28 yo, I’m asking a couple of questions.

Does RA not have enough debt to deal with?

At 28, is this just a way of pumping up his (last) league value?

Do we really want to sponsor some body’s superannuation contract?

Put the money into development!

Hamish Stewart. Long and accurate when the game plan calls for it.

Or smoking, eh Stan? (Pilecki- hard) Guess my age. 😂 😂 😂

But it was, and still should be, the first position considered at the selection table. Then your kicker, then the other 13. Then find your captain.
