Billy Dib fighting Amir Khan is a disgrace

During the week it was announced that Billy Dib would fight Amir Khan in Saudi Arabia for the newly minted WBC Welterweight Pearl title – whatever that is – only for the WBC to withdraw the Pearl title and announce that the fight would be for their vacant International title.

I do agree however that both Kaino and Nonu should be higher than they are but it is a mash of a number of peoples opinions so….

So you rate Kaino a better player than Michael Jones and Ian Kirkpatrick?

Never heard Kaino mentioned by anyone I know as the greatest ever AB but I have heard MANY say it about M Jones

Not sure I saw Horan shifted to make way for any replacement during his career.

Great skill to have to be able to play both positions but not sure I have seen many “best at the position in the world” moved to make room for someone unless it was for injuries.

Apart from the Fullback I can live with that side

The Roar’s 50 greatest players in Rugby World Cup history: 10-6

Not sure that even if we did find a great captain it would help much.

The problems that Rugby in Australia have go far deeper. The success of the Under 20’s and Schoolboys proves we have the raw talent, it is what happens after that, be it coaching, the splintered competitions, competition from NRL etc that needs to be sorted

Would not say Best, De Villiers or Kolisi were in the same league as Eales.

Smit was good but I would not say he was GREAT

The Roar’s 50 greatest players in Rugby World Cup history: 10-6

Last GREAT captains of some of the teams I mentioned:

SA – Francois
England – Johnson
Ireland – Wood???

The Roar’s 50 greatest players in Rugby World Cup history: 10-6

Gee that’s a bit harsh.

I would rate him probably in the top 5 International Rugby captains of all time.

When was the last GREAT captain for SA, England, Ireland, Scotland, etc

The Roar’s 50 greatest players in Rugby World Cup history: 10-6

If that is the 5 which I think we can safely assume it is I think that Eales not being ranked ahead of a few of these is pretty harsh

The Roar’s 50 greatest players in Rugby World Cup history: 10-6

You are kidding re Nonu and Horan right? When it comes to WC performances?!

The Roar’s 50 greatest players in Rugby World Cup history: 10-6

That is not saying much, it also does not mean that BOD should not have made this list, though I don’t think he should have.

It is a subjective list by 9 different people so not sure why you are having such a cry about it for!

The Roar's 50 greatest players in Rugby World Cup history: 15-11

So just being captain makes you a better player over an extended period of time?

Give me a break.

I will counter with, who was a better captain, Eales or NFJ’s? Gregan would have been Captain if not for Eales!

The Roar's 50 greatest players in Rugby World Cup history: 15-11

Yeah because there was nothing coming from the other side in the time leading up to that game! Geez!

The Roar's 50 greatest players in Rugby World Cup history: 15-11

Maybe Argentina have just been average at WC’s

The Roar's 50 greatest players in Rugby World Cup history: 15-11

Yep they do.

I will admit that I have not watched as much rugby as I used to and the state of Australian rugby in the last few years has not helped.

Having said that, reading through these articles, seeing the Wicks play the Argies at Coogee Oval, and working with a few Rugby mad guys has me excited for this WC.

Games being sort of in the same timezone will help, and I would just love to see a competitive tournament with a bit of flowing rugby.

Would love to see the Wallabies put it all together but if they cant then my heart is with either the Irish or the Welsh!

Would be great to see a fresh winner to put a bit of spark back into World Rugby

The Roar’s 50 greatest players in Rugby World Cup history: 40-36

So Lamaison basically gets in ahead of legends on the back of ONE WC game?!

This list seems to be going all sorts of pear shaped

The Roar’s 50 greatest players in Rugby World Cup history: 40-36

Gregan not in your 6 best Scrum Halfs?

Big Call. I would have have him and Joost ahead of Genia and Weepu at least!

The Roar’s 50 greatest players in Rugby World Cup history: 45-41

Exactly.

If you want to make a “Best Players of All-Time” list then do that, but if you are going to do a WC list then it has to be recognised that the SH and SH players have been dominant!

The Roar’s 50 greatest players in Rugby World Cup history: 45-41

Pretty Harsh on Little being behind BOD.

Little was key to the defense which saw the Wallabies win both their WC’s

The Roar’s 50 greatest players in Rugby World Cup history: 45-41

Sorry but the Roosters do not have “massive” member numbers.

The death of a Sydney NRL club is inevitable

Will be interesting to see how this Finals plays out with the weeks break before the Finals. Big risk the Richmond and Collingwood are a bit short after 1 game in 3 weeks.

From flag favourite to dark horse: can West Coast still go back-to-back?

Suggest you look back at their crowd figures during the lean last few years!

Also, you can’t just “leave aside” the Brown situation. The bloke took the wooden spooner’s and put them in the Finals hunt and it appears that the players and club just gave up on him. If they have no loyalty to the coach why should the fans give their loyalty to underperforming players and an inept board?

Interesting that Buderus has walked away from the club over the board’s handling of the situation!

Seven talking points from NRL Round 24

Was sold out within an hour of the finish of the game yesterday!

Seven talking points from NRL Round 24

So in other words you actually can’t point to any incident so your assertion that he was a “DIRTY” player is just BS!

No excuse to boo Goodes

Can you please provide all these blatant examples of him playing “DIRTY”?
