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.

Curtis Scott back for the Storm in reserves? Just in time to punch Walker again next week at Manly.

NRL Round 23 teams: Still no Cordner for Roosters, Foran returns for Bulldogs

Brown to St George …

BREAKING: Brown to part ways with Newcastle

Who’s going to pay it? Tinkler? Oh that’s right …

The Newcastle Knights should ask Trent Robinson to name his price

Another six game winning streak will put them into a grand final qualifier. That would be pretty funny.

BREAKING: Brown to part ways with Newcastle

Of the alleged ‘big four’ of Wests 2 years ago (Woods, Tedesco, Brooks, and Moses), Tedesco is the only undisputed success. Still, maybe if Brooks or Moses played for the Roosters or Storm, they would look better than they do now.

Holy Moses! Why Mitchell is now the real deal

GI, can you do an Alfie Langer and comeback for the finals?

Where it's all gone wrong for Souths and how they fix it for finals

Buzz Rothfield wrote a great story today in the DT saying that the dirtiest team in the comp are … Souths. Cop that Papi. https://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/sport/nrl/monday-buzz-tackle-whinge-is-a-storm-in-a-tea-cup/news-story/916ced06219528d99ee92f01133805d9

Are cracks appearing in the Melbourne Storm?

I had no idea you could have a ‘concussion sub’ now. How long has that been a rule?

Australia second Ashes Test player ratings: Smith and Cummins the standouts as top order flops

Smith 3 innings, 370 runs. They couldn’t get him out so had to knock him out. Our batting looks pretty weak if he doesn’t play in the 3rd test.

Good article from Phil Rothfield today in support of the Storm. Hooper, Crawley and Paul Kent need to move on from attacking them.

Brett Finch furiously defends Storm 'wrestling' tactics in heated argument

Agree. New Sydney super comp. Newtown, Annandale, Glebe, Balmain, Wests, Cumberland. That’s all you need.

Seven steps to save the NRL

Bring back Newtown and Glebe.

Cracks appearing in a side 4 points clear of the comp. It’s time to panic!

It just comes down to how teams play in the last 2 weeks of finals. Losing to Canberra and Manly now doesn’t matter, it’s how they go then.

As Max power said, Easts are still favourites anyway.

Are cracks appearing in the Melbourne Storm?

Pretty poor, I agree. Much of it to do with resentment at England’s failure to get Smith out.

The booing of Steve Smith was disgusting

If you believe the term is correct, then define it. I’m guessing you often throw hyperbolic terms around quite loosely e.g. your description of Trump as a ‘tyrant’, which trivializes the suffering of people who live in actual tyrannical regimes rather than imaginary ones.

As for being ’emboldened’, at least I am bold enough to write under my own name Mr/Ms ‘Doug Graves.’

Why racism in sport is so dangerous

The NRL paid for Smith’s daughter’s piano lessons too. Ian Schubert?

NRL make classy gesture to deserving person, outrage ensues

Paul is correct in saying racism is not a ‘whites only’ issue. Japan, for example, does not allow immigration and diversity, which in Kay’s terms must be seen as a racist policy.

I know what it means, but I’m not sure what Isaac means by it. The term is flung around very loosely these days, and often used incorrectly.

Why racism in sport is so dangerous

What is a ‘white supremacist’? I’m not sure what you mean by the term.

Breaking news – I heard the NRL bought Smith’s dad a bottle of port. Not the $4.99 flagon you get from Coles, one of them flash ones for $24.95. I just hope this is part of the Storm’s salary cap. Ian Schubert?

NRL's diamond ring stunt proves the game has lost its connection to the fans

Can’t see the far right column showing the competition points.

Here's how we can break the NRL ladder

Bancroft reminds me of myself when I was an opener as a boy. Good for a hard fought 11 or 13 before inevitably getting out.

Warner and Bancroft are floundering

Harsh but funny.

Newcastle's unending pain: Six win streak of 2019 will be this generation's '97

Fair enough. You’ve certainly put a fair bit of work into it.
