Nth Qlder but Bronco to the bone.

That video was great. Predating and discussing both the bunker and 2 ref system. Considering some of the ‘results’ Smith endured, I do wonder if he ever regretted those thoughts?

The rugby league club graveyard: A merger doomed to failure (part 8)

Judging by the way they were dressed, for every you lost drinking game you had to put on a piece of the English uniform.

I made 12:30 on NYE. I’m calling it a PB.

Yep and he played for them as well, usually ending in a mistake.

I can understand that. I suppose that’s where the NRL and QRL do things a little better, they respect the heritage of each other. Every club has to have at least 2 feeder clubs as not to load up one QRL club with junior and NRL quality. They respect that each QRL club (largely) has it’s own history and supporter base. As long as they understand that some players are going to come and go over the season as the NRL club requires, the opportunity to say “we remember ‘X’ tearing up the comp before they turned into a superstar” is not a bad thing.

Hi John. Hayne is just the poster boy but it’s a long list. Credit where it’s due to the Chooks. Aside from a laundry list of injuries they made the finals. In the last play young Walker gets palmed off and stumbles but still chased down Sami (who is a flyer) and the rest got back, organised their line and kept Herbert out. It may have been a botched pass but it was finals quality defence.

You think the Bears funded that survey? 😂
I thought my 200k was gilding the lily.

Do the Roosters still have a presence up there? thought the Roosters Wyong relationship is now defunct. I have a made Roosters mate that gets the ….. that Souths get more games than the chooks up there these days. At least the Warriors made use of the stadium, it is such a nice place.

Not that I’m a fan of so many Sydney clubs, the NRL really could have handled the demerger better. They’ve been propping up other clubs side-by-side for the last 2 decades and the one that could possibly take in a larger base was forgotten about.

It’s funny, from the outside looking in, we have Rugby fans claiming the region, AFL fans saying that’s their territory and Bears fans claiming 200,000 fans.

The rugby league club graveyard: A merger doomed to failure (part 8)

I hope and think they can build upon their success of last year, their fans and the region deserve a level of success after 30years of businessmen wanting to own an NRL club for status rather then results. From the outside it looks like Kelly and Frizelle are setting the club up for stability by way of club owned revenue streams.

To all those who rubbished Mal’s role at the club, he’s achieved what the fans have been wanting for for over a decade, stop paying overs for temperamental Sydney discards develop the local talent. Peachy, while being a solid contributor towards the end, would be the last of those to leave. Mal found the players and Holbrook is bringing them together. As Tom said, spoon to finals in two years is an excellent effort and they are only going to get better with time.

Interesting yarn Tony, cheers.

They certainly had some names attached to them back in the 20’s. Personally I used to like the Bears style of footy back in the day. I guess having the Qld contingent gave them more notoriety for me. Huge, rep quality pack then Jacko, Florimo, Sears, Dallas et al… it’s a surprise they didn’t achieve more success.

Question: who was the sponsor they derived their name from? I wonder if that would be one of he first name associated sponsorship deals in the league, or any comp for that matter being the 1950’s?

There is a lesson for all potential mergers in there, not just in league circles. If you sign a deal giving the other party all future rights and licences, they are the ones who won’t be afraid to fail…

All class from the whole squad.

'The boys have my back': Khawaja reveals how much Cummins' champagne gesture meant to him

I meant overall but Hobart is also part of that. Eng took their early wickets but after it settled down they had to wait until the sun went down then first thing again pick up the rest. Comparing Eng’s 40-odd in their last innings is a really low bar considering their final score.

So you agree with the comment above? I agree Hammer is very good defensively so wouldn’t you agree it’s more of a risk moving Holmes into the front line? If he’s as bad defensively as you believe Hammer will have his work cut out for him.

As far as football IQ and his hands I disagree. Hammer is super quick and finishes as well as any I’ve seen in recent history, however, he doesn’t have a single Try Assist or LBA which is not great considering wingers live off centres for tries. Holmes has 12 and 22 respectively. I’m not saying Hammer won’t get there but he’s not there now and the FB role has a lot more aspects than scoring tries.

The need for speed: Is this the fastest line-up in the NRL?

I know I can carry on about QRL a bit but there are some players like Berrell how I wonder haven’t got an NRL gig. Most frustratingly my team over looking 100 game talents for ‘the next big thing’. I reckon Melbourne and Sharks are 2 of the best at identifying talent without a large regard for age.

It’s not the first time Jacko and I have crossed swords and TBHI was pleasantly surprised with the maturity he initially replied with. Then, of course, when he realises his argument was falling down he reverts back to the old go to: tell you what position you have and attack you personally while tell you you have been rude to him. At the very least I’m glad I never have to share the same oxygen at the pub. He’ll be stuck at home on facebook getting ever more angry because no ones cares about his perceived entitlements.

DECISION: Immigration Minister Alex Hawke cancels Novak Djokovic's visa, Serb begins legal challenge

“I am extremely disappointed with the Court ruling to dismiss my application for judicial review of the Minister’s decision to cancel my visa, which means I cannot stay in Australia and participate in the Australian Open.”

Yep, very adult of him to try and tie up the court system long enough to play. Is it “fair and balanced” to buy your way into a supreme courts for a game when real legal issues wait?

Fitzy can always call him back if needed and sit him out when they face each other. I reckon they will lose Madden, he will kill it somewhere else and be another on the ‘one that got away’ list.

I know, forever the optimist. We might be pleasantly shocked or we might not be surprised at all.

Expected response from the cheap seats. Gotta love how all these ex Capt come out with their woulda/shoulda’s when their tour experience was very similar. Australia were fortunate they got the best of the batting conditions and Eng got them out just in time face a ball that was swining over a foot. IMO, they set Root and the coach up to fail and got their wish.

You would hope not. That SM article also said that he had very little to do with him mother due to her addictions. Hopefully it is the early wake up call he wants it to be.

Poor little darling, shifting the posts way over to Novak post deportation quotes now because you cannot support any of the BS you posted. 👍

I’ve said repeatedly that I have no issue with Novak’s choices but you want to try position me in way so you can recreate an argument that has nothing to do with the original. Your head is stuck so far up your own A you have no idea where the high is little buddy. Come back when your balls have dropped and you might have a deeper, more mature perspective instead of your entitled BS attitude you have now.

Very tough break for Brailey and the Knights. They have had no luck in this position in recent years and another rookie in the spine isn’t going to help their 2022 campaign. Should see if they can get a swap deal with Berrell from the Sharks. He’s 3rd in line there.

Answering questions with questions instead of answering? Only the big brains can come up with that tactic. 😂 😂
He poses a low risk, as I and Hawkes have stated. That’s enough. I don’t know, why do you want him here? You haven’t made a valid point yet.
What health advice don’t I believe? You’ve stated your position many times over. I’ve referenced it above. Feel free to read back to answer your own question.

ALL have direct quotes straight from Hawke kimself Nope not one does. Only your “get the jist” Which is why I got involved at all.
I was being very objective. The only time I have been impolite is this afternoon when you’ve attacked me. In this instance, having two point of views doesn’t make both right. You are wrong. That’s it. Wrong. Twist, shake, dodge, strawman all you want – You Are Wrong.
