Hey Mushi, what do you mean?

Thanks AMD.

Thanks Andrew.

And the Penrith heading is a quote from one of the Panther’s fans in the story.

Hi JennyfromPenny,
I didn’t pick the Penrith heading, that came from the editorial team.

Congrats on your first article Sam, and welcome!
As wonderful as it is to have options and depth, if you are unsure of who the ‘star’ is to fill each position and who the back up is in your own team, you can just go round in circles. Until the Tigers work out who their main person is in each position of the spine is, they may make too many changes throughout the season and not build any consistancy or strong partnerships.
For me though, the halves should be Douehi and Hastings.

The Wests Tigers' spine conundrum

I was wondering the same thing, He could have just come out and apologised, said he was cleared but what he did was still wrong, and now just wants to focus on the Ashes.
Very interesting that he resigned.

Thanks for that Jacks.
It’s one of those topics that just goes round in circles.
While all league players continue to get labelled as ‘grubs’ and ‘boofheads, while all women continue to get labelled as ‘Gold Diggers’ and ‘only in it for the fame’, while all fans continue to keep players on pedestals and say “what did you expect from a footy player?” or struggle to acknolwdege that their heores could ever do anything wrong, and while clubs continue to protect their talent instead of reprimand and educate – nothing will change.

'Toxic': The way women are treated in rugby league must change

😂 Not cheap enough! I would be so angry if we signed him.

Thanks for the Around the Grounds Troy.
As a Knights fan, I hope we don’t buy anyone else for the halves. As much as I’d love to be, we all know we won’t be a title threat next year,. We have Joey training the halves and we have some great young and exciting talent that could potentially grow into a halves pairing sensation. We need to throw them in the deep end and give them a few years to develop.

Thanks Tony. Not going to lie, may have done a little happy dance when I saw it 😂

Thanks Tony. Yes, was more my decision to have a fan from either side of the merge, but totally get what you are saying.
I will be doing that for your Dragons as well!

'Just go out every week and have a crack. That’s all we ask': What it’s like to be a Tigers fan

Hey GB,
Um, wow. Not sure why I feel you are getting angry at me. Of course it is not ok to verbally or psychologically abuse anyone.
I heard about this a few weeks back, and if the all boys team were allowed to compete (which they obvioulsy were) then they won fair and sqaure. That’s terrible that they have been treated so poorly after the game.

Women’s rugby league makes no money, but its players should be paid the same regardless

Congrats on your first article Dimitri, and welcome! Big topic to start off with!
Some fans are angry thinking the women are getting equal pay and don’t deserve it / don’t bring in the same revenue etc. If the game thinks along the same lines, the women’s competition will never become top level professional.
The women are getting paid the same as the men for playing 1 Origin game. They are both doing the same thing, so getting paid the same.
The men can earn 3 times the amount as they will play 3 games. The women will only play 1 so only have the ability to earn 1 match payment.
If you start a business, you invest in it so it grows it and hopefully it becomes successful and makes you a profit.
If you want to have a nice flower, you buy the seeds, soil and a pot, you plant a seed, nuture it and grow it. Then you have the result you wanted. Spend money, look after it, watch it grow, reep the rewards. That is what is being done here in the women’s game.

Thanks Phil. Yes, there definitely seems to be a big issue going on back of house.

Thanks Tony! I needed that laugh 😂 God help us if Fox get the rights to the race and stretch it over 2 nights like the Dally M awards.

Thanks Nat. Yes, and I’m sure they are not the only fans that feel like that.

Thanks Stormy. Yes it was great to chat with the guys about their team. I’m really enjoying putting these pieces together.

Thanks Andrew. Yes I think the Dargons one will be interesting!

Nice write up.
It’s been great having him at our club. I love that he kicked a winning field goal in his first and last games for us.
I wish him all the best for the future.

Mitchell Pearce, farewell and thank you

Interesting idea Hairy.
I think the hard part is that so many of us turn to sport as enjoyment and as an escapism, when we get told to support this, like that, oppose something else, it can feel like bombardment and the actual issue can get lost along the way.
I’m all for good causes, and appreciate the importance around the discussion on climate change, but maybe as a starting point to something like climate change the players and clubs who want to speak out about it can do so themselves on their social media or even during interviews?

Why doesn't sport do more about climate change?
