Sporting polygamist who supports two rugby league teams, the Bulldogs and the Storm. (The 2012 grand final was a nightmare.) Also a QPR tragic and a firm believer that Ian Chappell\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s mid-70s Aussie cricket team can never be topped.

Tedesco has been a great player but he’s way past his best. It’s well past time to give the spot to either Dylan Edwards,Tommy Turbo, or Ryan Papenhuyzen.

NSW Blues 2024 State of Origin predicted team: Maguire set to overhaul squad in search of winning combination

Fans of these one-man-teams are probably getting a bit sick of their season being over when that man goes down through injury. Maybe Ponga should sign for 300K for his next Newcastle deal, so the club can spend some of its salary cap on whatever back up fullback they can line up to replace him!

NRL Round 8 Teams: Cleary back, big ins and outs at Broncos, Eels blood new half, rookie replaces Ponga, Bunnies boosted

Robbo isn’t happy he’s losing Suaalii and Manu, that’s Teddy’s heading for pasture, Leniu and Young are suspended, and the spine is struggling… but that’s no excuse to take it out on the refs!

NRL Round 7 Talking Points: With big wins come big losses, and which coach is the game’s biggest sook?

Dolphins, Dragons for the finals? The Bulldogs will take eighth spot.

NRL Power Rankings: Round 7 - Dolphins, Dragons finals bound? Knights a non-event, Parra on the precipice

Yes, that was a brilliant piece of sports broadcasting.

WATCH: Fox randomly cut to Ciraldo mid-play, completely miss the grounding for potential try

$750 fine – gosh that will really hurt a guy earning a million a year.

I don’t see a Souths-Parra grand final this year.

'We gave up': Under pressure Arthur rages at 'part-time footy team' Parra as undermanned Dolphins run riot

Never mind Roosters, you’re still ahead of the Storm on points for-and-against: 31 instead of 20. On for-and-against, the Storm is only running 8th.

'Both were really clear': Roosters in a rage over ref's contentious calls as Storm win on the back of two dubious tries

I thought Lindsay Collins’ hair did play at the ball.

Robbo is on another planet!

'Both were really clear': Roosters in a rage over ref's contentious calls as Storm win on the back of two dubious tries

That’s the sort of honesty the Roosters need.

For Robbo’s next trick, I want to see him complain about how St George gets to play their ‘home game’ next week against the Roosters at Alliance, then come back in round 18 to the same venue for their away game 😂

'Both were really clear': Roosters in a rage over ref's contentious calls as Storm win on the back of two dubious tries

Robbo’s turning into Ricky Stuart with all the ref-whining. Now let me guess – did Robbo blow up about Tedesco not getting sent to the sin bin for the trip on Paps? I’ll have to check the press conference…

If Lomax identifies as a centre, who are we to call him a winger?

Next one – Nathan Cleary to super league 😱

Maybe they can pick up a bargain buy centre / fullback from Souths.

Joey Manu leaves a huge hole in the Roosters backline - and it comes at the worst possible time for Trent Robinson

I hope Blake Ferguson can give Joey a few tips on how to thrive in Japan.

CONFIRMED: NRL superstar joins ex-All Blacks coaching greats in Japan - could he do an SBW?

We should just do this post game conferences with AI now. Using an automatic set of stock answers.

Give coaches a choice: NRL post-match press conferences are mandatory, but only to say what the bosses want you to say

Dogs should be at least two places higher.

NRL Power Rankings: Round 6 - Dragons, Raiders prove doubters wrong, Souths players still putting in for Demetriou

I looked up the NRL website for the ‘Moral Victory’ points table, but couldn’t find it. Does anyone know where it is?

Bulldogs grab moral victory, but Melbourne take the two points as Storm overcome Foxx hat trick in comeback win

“Hutcho’s days are numbered surely. His defence and his effort plays are top shelf, but he’s so slow of thought and mind.”

Reminded me of an old Warren Ryan quote about late 70s five eighth Gary Hughes. ‘The fastest player in Sydney, between the ears.’ Slow runner, fast thinker. The opposite of Hutcho.

Bulldogs grab moral victory, but Melbourne take the two points as Storm overcome Foxx hat trick in comeback win

This seems harsh. He’s just about been man of the match in their two wins this year.

Don't believe the hype: Why did Bulldogs fork out big bucks for the most overrated player in the NRL?

Gould is right. But Mitchell should realise there aren’t too many other jobs out there he could get that pay 800K a year. So he’d better make himself fall in love with the game. Consider it a marriage of convenience.

NRL News: Wighton says 'sorry' Latrell has burning desire after Gus raises retirement call, Annesley refutes hip-drop critics

“(The Bulldogs’) defeat at Cronulla was a kick in the teeth, mostly because they should have been playing 12 men for over an hour after Briton Nikora somehow escaped being sent off for a nasty high shot midway through the first half.”

Judging by last Friday, the less players the opposition has, the worse Canterbury play.

Five and a kick: Manly hates you, but should you love them? And are Ricky's Raiders fun now too?

Maybe Mitchell is just frustrated because Souths are going so bad. Their next three games are Sharks, Storm, and Panthers, so it could get even worse.
