You know what’s crazy? I still think the Roosters will play the Storm as I think the Eels lose tonight lol

The Roosters' aura is fading

In my opinion, I love Liu – I just didn’t include him as a Top 17 as he hasn’t in most of the games this year, but if not, should definitely be 4 first graders rested**

They will definitely come back, but sheesh that would take a huge toll on your confidence

FYI. Bellamy has never had 60 put on him 😊

Trent Robinson: The best coach of the modern era

I am also for that lol 👍

My crystal ball for this year's finals

Genuinely had this conversation a day or so ago. I think the term SUPERSTAR should not be lightly thrown around.
In my own opinion, I only believe current superstars in the NBA are LeBron, AD, Kawhi, Giannis, Harden, Steph, Luka and KD. Not even Russ, or CP3, or Embiid – I believe should be considered superstars. Definitely stars, however.
Regarding Murray, as I have said, I dont think he is a superstar but sheeeesh his performances in the bubble are definitely pushing himself to STAR status. I would say his counterpart is a star, for sure (Joker)… Murray is probably in the all-star status, but definitely pushing the star status. Love watching him.. and I am a Lakers fan (Kobe fan, not a LeBron bandwagon man…).
Great article!

Is Jamal Murray a superstar?

I love seeing American sports on here! Awesome article. Sheesh, my team have a ways to go (Eagles). Hurts to see how such a talented roster cannot get it together, but I openly blame Wentz. Has not been the same since he went down in the Superbowl winning season.
I would have the Hawks in 3rd, over the Titans and Packers, purely because of who they have beaten, but can’t knock another undefeated side.
Hoping Russell Wilson wins MVP this year, so deserving.

NFL power rankings: Week 2

Was a GREAT way to start. Really cant wait for that series, moreso than the WCF, and I am a Laker fan.

Five things we learnt from the first two rounds of the NBA playoffs

The Conference Finals now, are nothing more than: Great teams v Great players.
Miami and Denver are GREAT teams. 1 strong All-Star, a certified sidekick (Murray and Bam) and some great, tough and durable players.
LA and Boston have GREAT players. LeBron and AD on one side of the spectrum, and Kemba and Tatum on the other. With decent sidekicks, but the 2 in both sides, are the key.
The great TEAM won yesterday in the ECF, I wonder how the West plays out..

Five things we learnt from the first two rounds of the NBA playoffs

I would swap Mann for Morgo, Mann is a proven centre and can play it comfortably and well, and Morgo is the elite 14, in any level.
Carrigan could even start, as he has a great motor, and bring the grunt and toughness of McGuire off the bench. Either or..

Dont mind this team at all and I think it may be very similar to this come October/November.

Who Queensland should pick for Origin this year

Max is in his feelings…. 😂

Nobody does it better than the Storm

Avid Storm fan. A few failed under him, I think no more than the 2014 recruitment lot – Ben Roberts, Junior Moors, Lagi Setu, Junior Sau. All decent players on the downhill movement, but failed to grow up a leg with the Storm. Sam Kasiano was a sad one, one I wish worked out. Nate Myles, George Rose… to name a few

Nobody does it better than the Storm

For reasons being with JAC, he is known to have a fair few “bad” influences in Sydney, hence his family are so stoked he is in Melbourne, away from trouble or any negative influences and is playing GREAT footy! My fear is him falling back into comfortable life and negative influences ruining his career once hes back in Sydney. I give him 2021 to play steady, then 2022 to fall apart, sad as it is to say.

Nobody does it better than the Storm

The Roosters knocked the Storm out of contention last year mate lol. The eventual champs, Roosters..

I don’t think the Raiders are anyones worry to be honest mate, the top 3 sides will comfortably beat them. The Storm spine has a whole season to play together and I dont think any of those Hughes cracks from last season against the Raiders, would show this year.

Eight talking points from NRL Round 18

Fearing the Raiders more than the Storm is the most ludicrous thing I have read on this site lol. One bad game and people tend to forget the dominance and brilliance of the Storm smh

Eight talking points from NRL Round 18

If anything, I think the Storm will rather finish 2nd than 1st, it will suit their run home for the finals. I think once they’re healthy, they will be on a mission to possibly send out their leader a winner.

Seven talking points from NRL Round 16

They have one of the biggest fanbases in the competition. Albeit they’re rowdy (and annoying lol), I enjoy having a competitive Souths side in the competition. Also, a little soft spot for myself personally.. (junior footy lol).

Timing is everything as Parramatta's premiership campaign goes up in smoke

As happy as I am to have Souths playing well, they have only had 2 victories all season, against top 8 teams. Their timing might be impeccable, yes, but I think next week will be the big trial on their form. Playing the Storm with no Latrell aswell, could be a tricky one. Will be interesting, but as I said, I love having a competitive Souths side, just that much better for the comp in general.

Timing is everything as Parramatta's premiership campaign goes up in smoke

I think Philly still get them for the NFC East crown, but I definitely can see them making it as a wildcard, for sure. Really excited fro the McCarthy era, as I hate to see such talented rosters go to waste, as the Cowboys were under Garrett. In a stacked NFC, there will be plenty of teams gunning for the wildcard spots, but I think if they miss out on the NFC East crown, they will get a wildcard spot for sure!

Why Dallas returns to the play-offs in 2020

I am so torn on the Cam situation. I am an avid Storm fan, and want him off our books next year. No disrespect at all, he is the greatest I have ever seen personally, I just am ready for the next wave to come. In saying that, if he wants to go another year, I am hoping its elsewhere, which leaves really only the Titans or Brisbane. Brisbane have the ROSTER, they just lack a LEADER. He could elevate that team to what they should be, based on paper. Say they go for Kevvy, that is a huge pull for Cam, who is a Kevvy admirer. In saying all this, I say he retires and his wifes hacked instagram post last night, I think will point towards a farewell. The Storm are gearing up hugely to send him out a winner, they’re brewing massively up north.

Where are some of the NRL's biggest names set to end up in 2021?

Geez, no charges for Welch and NAS! Crazy lol. Looks like Storm wont be too depleted against Manly next week.

Improved Eels still have a long way to go for an NRL premiership

Hahaha yep 100%

Improved Eels still have a long way to go for an NRL premiership

I think I almost put a pen through Parramatta for premiership chances last night, something about their attack isn’t settling for me.
Barring injuries, I can see the Storm possibly winning from here on out, till the finals time.
Hughes, Smith, Munster, Bromwich all looking to be ready to go against Manly next week. Welch is apparently on the mend and ready to go, but they have lost Brandon and NAS (pending suspension) for sure. Few big names out now for the Storm (Finucane, Tui, Vunivalu, Brandon and NAS), but should be ok.
Spine goes back to normal, Jesse slots back in, Tino starts at lock, just means their bench is a little weaker. I would daresay they go with Hynes, Eisenhuth, Vete and Lewis or Schonig.

The teams that can afford to throw cash at him are literally all losing sides. Bulldogs, Warriors and the Titans. He ends up in a losing scenario if he walks.

9 problems but a hooker ain't one: Knights and Storm two sides of the same coin

As an avid Storm fan, I know this is crazy to say, but I think Cam is damaging the club moreso, by staying. I think he will retire and I hope he does, so the future can shine brightly. Regarding who takes what, as good as Brandon is, Harry is just a better hooker. Plain and simple. Brandon’s deliveries from dummy when hes tired are very subpar and can be very sloppy with his service. I haven’t seen more than 2 bad passes from Grant this year (I watch the Tiger’s literally for him) and he plays exactly like a young Cam. Brandon could be the next Radley hybrid 13 if he wanted to be, but it’s all up to him. If he wants to play hooker that bad, he will end up on a losing side playing dummy. OR If he wants to win, he would make a REALLY good 13, playing in the middle linking between the hooker and both halves on each side, he would be superb at it. I can see a future with:
13: B. Smith
9: Grant
7: Hughes
6: Munster
1: Pap

(FYI, Dale moves to prop. He plays like a prop anyway).

In my long winded opinion, Cam retires, Harry plays 9 and it’s all up to Brandon on what he does.
