Sports enthusiast from Wollongong. Knights fan, State of Origin mad, NBA, EPL, can watch eight hours of cricket for five days and not mind that it was a draw.

Hit the nail on the head

The tough call on Will Pucovski

Piggy Riddell gets in at 9 for me on try celebrations alone

St George Illawarra's greatest NRL team

That second half was like watching a slow motion car crash.
Qld totally deserved the win.

The snubbed Blues 17 who could beat Queensland

I think NSW biggest problem has always been getting ahead of itself, before games and during. I hope Freddy hasn’t thought about creating a dynasty or legacy and he’s just taking it one game at a time.
I understand the sentiment that victories mean a bit more after such a tough run, but personally I was as devastated when Hodgson through the worst pass ever seen as I was in 2013.

Can NSW match Queensland’s dynasty now they're finally all in on Origin?

Great idea!

Mate I’m very nervous, the Blues are terrible front runners

You’re not wrong – Dufty I think would have to grab a Dally M before he’s in the fold

Haha it’s all a bit tongue in cheek, who would be your six? (excluding those injured or in the 21 man squad)

Can’t believe Bowen and Guerra! Shows the depth of the Aussie teams during those years I guess.

Rugby league's one-Test wonders

I think he was used poorly. The Knights showed if you give him a season at one position (for the most part) he’ll do well.

Should the Dragons take a punt on James Roberts?

I thought he deserved a spot in the squad at least, with my Newcastle hat on I thought he might’ve come in at 5/8 and pushed Munster to fullback as he played so well there a few years ago. Big faith shown in AJ Brimson. Mann is versatile to a fault, with the inexperience in the outside backs he could have been a big asset to the Maroons.

I sure do! Cheers Barry

Great idea for an article!
I reckon Will Hopoate might be unlucky to miss out here, career wise maybe not as accomplished as the others but his one origin game was fire.

One-hit wonders: The greatest team to play just a single Origin

Definitely an interesting proposition. The speed of Ramsay, Roberts, Dufty and Lomax might even make Ben Hunt look a little better with a few try assists. I think if Griffin can get them fit and firing on defence their attack would take care of itself.
I also think it’s the kind of signing the dragons might make – a potentially bad one. The off field stuff is a huge risk, but I actually think he can turn himself around. Fans should get behind players like this not shit on them.

Also nice work getting the comments section firing with your first article 😉

Mann might have been a dud centre at St George but he sure has been a great 5/8 for Newcastle

Dear God I hope he doesn’t play origin this year – Cam Smith swan song, Bennet coaching, NSW favourites – I know how this one goes

You don't have to like him, but you do have to admit Cameron Smith is rugby league's greatest ever

What’s that old saying about lipstick on a pig 😂

I’d love to see D Rose get a ring, but I think Rondo worked so well in that team this year why change it? Rondo and Lebrons basketball iq in the same team is clearly dangerous, and playoff Rondo’s a different beast.
It’s a bit romantic and not likely at all but I’d love to see CP3 and Melo come over to the Lakers, banana boat crew winning a chip together would be a great narrative

Derrick Rose to the Lakers: Good for everyone?

I think Souths might have a bit more talent than you’re giving them credit for, or maybe it’s easy to focus on the talent on the sideline (Latrell, Jimmy Roberts)
But they’ve still got a great team, I think a prelim isn’t over or underachieving it’s pretty much on the money. I think not going further than a prelim next year would be an underachievement.

Six talking points from the NRL preliminary finals

Gunners still just a touch underneath the big clubs

So close yet so far as the Gunners falls short against Manchester City

Available yes – a good target? Questionable.

The Knights' top targets should they offload Mitchell Pearce

Thanks Barry!
I agree with what you’re saying, if Brailey and McCullough don’t go down this year I think the Knights have a different season.
But next year with a healthy side and the addition of Frizell next year I think it’s crunch time for Mitchell.
