Nth Qlder but Bronco to the bone.

So the Bears were late in putting a proposal together? Did that include NSO which is not up to NRL standard? Then knocked back again for exactly the age reason everyone is arguing against the Bears or Jets reinstatement – just another Sydney club taking from the already stretched Sydney talent pool. I can respect they are your club and you want to see them back in the NRL what does it do to develop the NRL as a whole?

“Pot, kettle, black does not apply in this situation. Every other club (supposedly) getting an extra $5m are already in the NRL. This is not same/same, the Bears are not in the NRL. They are unashamedly trying to tie themselves to any proposal at all and pretend like there is a benefit to the new entrant.

I understand where you are coming from. I supported the Valleys Diehards in Brisbane long before Broncos came into town. They went broke, tied into a few clubs before getting kicked out. They fought for readmission and eventually succeeded but they are not even QRL anymore just BRL. I still go down to their games most Saturdays to support them knowing there is little possibility even graduating into QRL. It is what it is.

Blues Origin II team: Latrell 'ready to give it to Queenslanders' after Madge meeting, Barrett says Moses best option

FMD, you just rewrote exactly what i said. 3 years ago was 2021, Hec was stripped in 2019 and the only other winning series he has played 2018 – 6 years ago. Do you think you made any further point? No, you didn’t.

“ Queenslanders were crying and threatening not to show up for the next SOO series” I do like the stories you make up in your head. Next series NSW get 59k to Accor for Game 2 and Suncorp sells out game 3 – again. So who didn’t show up? NSW fans after their most dominant series didn’t show up that’s who. #NSWoneinarow

Hype? Yes by the media until NSW lose. What 2 series in a row? Pretty sure he was dropped in 2019. He hasn’t played origin for 3 years and his last winning series before that was back in 2018.

There is quite a few liberties taken in this article, obviously from a fan perspective. Let’s be honest Bears fans just want the Bears and they have shown over the years that they will attach themselves to any prospective new franchise. They don’t care who, therefore, there is no attachment further than “what is our best opportunity” not what is best for the game.

Dropping 2 top 3 playmakers for 2 bottom 4 play makers is exactly right. The worst Qld team to provide a spine player has nearly double the wins of both Souths and Parra and/or at least 150pt better +/-. If you think facing the Qld will be anything like what the Broncos produced then I will look forward to your sooking and not caring about origin anymore – again.

“Protection from the fans”. No chance. Look at Hynes, he is very hard to dislike and been playing well for a long time yet he has been roasted mercilessly. 17 NSW players will line up next Wednesday against a very dominant and settled Qld team and the only person getting blamed for a NSW loss will be Trell. Sad to say bit this will probably be his last year in NSW team – by choice.

Latrell reveals biggest Origin fear ahead of looming NSW recall

You forget that Mitchell not scoring 3 and setting up is him letting NSW down. He said it himself, he is walking in as a ready made scapegoat.

Yep, Qld is definitely worried about a couple of blokes steering the 14 and 15th placed teams around. Dropping the play makers from. The 2nd and 3rd placed team is NSW all over.

I would be very surprised if the Bears can bring 200k more supporters that are not watching NRL now. The Bear NSWRL team have been a feeder to a number of different NRL clubs over the years without swapping allegiances but you can still be a RL fan. Another Sydney club, Jets or Bears does nothing to expand the game.

Don’t treat Perth as second-class NRL citizens again by lumping them with a relic of the past from 'over east'

You are going to need to elaborate on this. Bears have been given two chances and failed. If the Perth team is financial enough why would they want to be attached to the Bears?

The funny irony in these charges is that Latrell could fight and very well win because 10 in the bin should be absolute max for 3rd man handbags, given no punches thrown. They’ll accept the fine so to play origin – maybe. However that charge stays in his record which means any future incident and he misses games for Souths due to loading.

Throw Moses into that same basket. 1 good game and he’s the biblical Moses in blue. Both coming from bottom 4 teams. Hynes dips from excellent to average in 2 games in 2 years but still leading the ladder leaders he is no good at all.

The idea that any Sydney club should be granted a bolt-on license is egotistical and defies what the NRL are trying to achieve with expansion. There will be no more eyeballs on the TV nor any sustained crowd increases at Sydney games. The amount of people not watching NRL now because they are Bears fans would have no measurable effect that V’landys could go to the broadcasters asking for more $. If the NRL are going to give the new franchisee $15m each year there has to be a return somewhere. Anything less than a few hundred thousand eyeballs doesn’t cut it. That said, if a new franchise is financially viable enough that they can’t make a bid without the bolt-on club they are not worth considering either.

My man, no forward on either team ran for over 100m in the first half. In that first 40 souths were gifted 4 penalties, 4 restarts and yet only ran for 60 more metres than the Broncos did. 20m more post contact metres. If you call that “run all over” then I suppose you are used to mediocre.

'Ready to go': Latrell Mitchell's perfect audition for Origin II as Souths stun Broncos

Broncos were poo. Have been for 2 games. Souths have been poo for 2 years. Typical souths though, you watch a bloke trip and claim you bashed them.

'Ready to go': Latrell Mitchell's perfect audition for Origin II as Souths stun Broncos

Souths deserved the win on the back of terrible Broncos play. 65% completion rate, lose the penalty count, mostly out of yardage and yet beat souths in the final 60 mins by 2 tries to one (off a massive forward pass). Trell might be carrying a rib there as well. A long way to go for both teams.

Dearden is only 23yo. Mam 21yo. Sam Walker 21yo. Then you have Coby Black at 18yo playing Q Cup now. That’s about 10 – 15yrs worth of #7 for Qld.
