I actually had to stop and think what the date Wass for a second. April 1st.

Super League axe scrums for season restart

Was Cordner junior development program?

Who is the most powerful NRL club? Part 6, the winner is...

Hi Ray Mulligan, I am totally with you about ‘clubs not on level playing field’, but to me it is different reasons and points.

Who is the most powerful NRL club? Part 6, the winner is...

I think their ‘possible’ power may end up being shown with how the NRL responds to the Bronco’s this year and the next. The NRL don’t do too much with other clubs having shocking years.

Yep it’s dumb. Like teenagers at a bus stop arguing about their suburb or town being better than the other teenagers place. The thing that upsets me and that I find myself arguing about is if the code I follow (League), not doing something as good as another code is, management and administration wise.

Time to end the code wars, AFL and NRL can live in harmony

Yeah obviously the working class, tradesmen in Victoria, none of them would be playing AFL

Ha. You guys, poor things. From a Parra supporter ‘you just got to hold on’.

Eight talking points from NRL Round 8

Yep ‘The V-man’ is doing ok. It would be tough for the AFL atm with Victoria’s predicament. It wouldn’t be a cake walk for the NRL if cases roof off again in NSW or NSW and Qld at same time.

It is tough but the footy player and football don’t move at the speed of a tennis ball

Who is the most powerful NRL club? Part 2

The rugby league digest ‘super league war’ has been great. For me it’s how amateur Lots of it was run and built, introducing new clubs and sorted over lunch or who you liked. Crazy

Who is the most powerful NRL club? Part 3

I think the questions should be ‘why are these teams positioned in a certain spot or not’ For the people not agreeing with article. I agreed with jamesb down the page about the cowboys. My questions are why are the dogs down right now, how did this happen? What Things are weakening the sea eagles? Ground, back room troubles? It’s more then just saying ‘gov won’t pay for a ground’. Why won’t they? Why don’t the go see a point in it?

Who is the most powerful NRL club? Part 2

Agreed Soda, only tough years any a big pool. You could do one from any era, the NRL, from the modern tv times with the ARL. Even a ‘generation’ age/time one, the rough generation of a player, a new generation of fans, cause that also eb’s and flows

Who is the most powerful NRL club? Part 3

I’d like to see a ‘most poorly run club’ ranking, from the ARL era. It’s the modern tv age, breaking through the Sydney comp.

Who is the most powerful NRL club? Part 1

Ok. So are we talking like 96 it’s a double header, if so what do you think are the two games rough scores? Or are you wanting one mashed rules game?

Can the All Blacks play rugby league?

Maybe a Warner as 12th if team playing in anywhere outside Aus and South Af.

The current world's best Test XI

Yep, agree The Set with all. Same Convincing winners, 50-12 in league rules. But same sort of score in Union

Can the All Blacks play rugby league?

More clubs! So you think Sydney can support the numbers of teams money wise? The poorer teams have no money to compete for some other reason, it’s not to do with ‘can’t get sponsors $’?

Lack of talent isn't a problem in the NRL - but lack of good coaches may be

So there are untapped players better then the players in the bottom four teams that could give the top teams a run for their money. Really?

Lack of talent isn't a problem in the NRL - but lack of good coaches may be

Yep. You can see the over bowled in days from old score sheets, way more then today. Plus they did 8 ball overs.

Timeless Test matches: Play until there's a result

But I not sure their talent is that much in the ‘key’ spine positions.

Lack of talent isn't a problem in the NRL - but lack of good coaches may be

Agreed. That issue is more the one stand out problem. Clubs hoarding talent, Jr’s and other grades, top clubs with reps player even coming off the bench, that stuff dont make a fair, competitive comp, but lots aren’t really. looking for a ‘fair’ comp. There is a definite difference between a coach who has ‘it’ and one who don’t, same as a player like Barrett and Des. But I don’t think Bellamy or East coach could get the dogs to the top four this year with their cattle. Easts having how ever many rep players compared to the dogs show distribution isn’t even. Easts lose a top notch player and sign another top notch one, the bottom teams can’t even get one. Administrative competence is the top thing for me. I also not sure how much you can pump up a player’s performance vs the dogs (Sorry The Barry, lol).

I’m not sold on the promotion/relegation. I know it gives you still a chance as a fan. But those teams that are perennial bottom half, a few times maybe getting to the eight Once a decade, I’m just not into that kind of ‘comp’, it don’t think you making most of the market. You have fans of a team in, but fans of more then one sitting out waiting. I want best of best. I don’t want to basically know the top eight before first game of comp, the haves and have not. I know there are weaknesses and arguments for and against it. But for me as a Parra fan living ten hours from their home stadium, if it was run like that atm with the last 30 years as a rough example, I could understand fans jumping ship to another sport, particularly young kids. I have said it before on here in other articles and I’m not the brain or autocrat, I like the idea of the lower grade that’s a feeder for the National comp. for example, Parra being in this With Penrith and Wests, whoever. And their player work to get up to Rep their national team, or bought buy others. I’d have no problem following parra’s ‘parent’ club and I understand plenty wouldn’t. But times are changing from a city comp, to a state comp, to a national comp. league hasn’t really adapted to that too well. They are tons a reasons and ideas about why not and some people that think league is doing fine. I see it as a bit similar to more then a century ago people saying ‘curse those cars’. Shooting at vehicles even, lol, want to hold on to the horse. Good or bad, right or wrong, things change and adaptions should be made to move with it. To me it doesn’t seem like league is loving with the times. The AFL has been the best at looking ahead to the next generation with its teams/national comp, grab those kids young, in twenty years idea.

What rugby league should look like post-COVID: Part 2

I don’t know who Or what the best Options are. But the are mega companies around the world that make tons of money assessing this kind of stuff, they don’t necessarily need it back ground in the thing they assessing. They know how to do their work. They even work out if it feasible or not to do at. If not, they shouldn’t. Surely they have already been doing this. If I got a belly ache I don’t go see my local electrician.

Nice article. I do like the ‘expand’ slowly way rather then grab any half baked consortium to fill the league to an even number. The ARL doing this in the past was stupidity on another level. The poor GC teams and boys club groups during the ‘jeans west’ times that never had any business base background of running a ‘successful’ league’s club and got into the nation comp to many times. I’d rather have one team sitting out a game every week rather then the comp ‘carrying’ a club not up to it management wise.
