“forwards or towards the opponent’s touchline.” That had me worried about the attention to detail…

How to fix the NRL

If Souths lose all their games they are a good chance of missing the 8. Saying that, they have a game against the Warriors they should win…

Do or die for Souths in Brisbane this Friday night

And this is how Brisbane lost its trams, ill considered change for change sake.

” with the former side looking to continue their rise up the ladder”
Have you looked at the ladder? 7 isn’t going up to 6 unless Souths, Manly or Parra loses all their remaining games.

Darius is just waiting to unleash at the right time. He is the new Shane Perry.

I have a mate in the jewellery business and the markup is insane.

The diamond ring is a Storm in a teacup

I’d like to know what the NRL actually paid for the ring. I doubt it is anywhere even close to 15k which I think puts a different spin on things.

15k might be a rounding error, but it is still a lot of kid’s jerseys. Just because the percentage is small doesn’t mean the number can’t be significant.

NRL make classy gesture to deserving person, outrage ensues

Nope, not what I mean at all. Why do the ABs need a decent ref to win?

Bledi hell! Wallabies walloped by brilliant All Blacks

Actually read his comment, he is saying that this week NZ won because there was a decent ref. Implying that they only lost last week because the ref wasn’t decent. The All Blacks can never be fairly and squarely beaten according to their supporters.

Bledi hell! Wallabies walloped by brilliant All Blacks

Read your first comment. It somehow attributes the scoreline this week to the competence of the ref… are you blaming the loss last week on the ref then? Typical NZ supporter, you only lose because of the ref, you had a second string team, food poisoning etc blah blah…

Bledi hell! Wallabies walloped by brilliant All Blacks

I thought the All Blacks got thrashed when we had a half decent ref…

I looked up the rules, seems you still can.

Parra matter, the Panthers lose their puff and the Broncos are going to make the eight

Then their budget is wrong.

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

They award it Thunderdome style…

Then he could’ve stayed home and been an accountant and play with his kids every night. If your hubby is on an oil rig and you see him a week a month, that’s sacrifice. If he is off getting payed millions to play football that is not – it’s a lifestyle choice.

It’s 15 grand of someone else’s money, you just don’t do that.

Drop Bancroft for Starc. You will get as many runs because Starc can bat a little and as a bonus you get an unplayable left armer you can use in 3 over shock spells.

Warner and Bancroft are floundering

Did anyone else think a try was missed when Hass lost it in the ingoal? It looked like the Panthers player grounded the ball with his torso before Hass regathered and grounded it.

Doesn’t your inner yobbo ever get to peek out? You will burst a blood vessel being so uptight all the time.

Union head and shoulders above league for player welfare

A facial has nothing to do with head injuries. And you must have something dead inside you if it doesn’t delight you to see grown men behaving like children every so often. The facial had grown on me as I get older, I used to hate it, but now I just laugh.

Union head and shoulders above league for player welfare

I think your reasoning is flawed. You might as well have Mark Waugh in there because he missed out on a few tests as well waiting for his spot. ALMOST EVERYONE has to wait for an incumbent to retire or get injured to make the team. Why isn’t Gilchrist in there? Imagine what a keeper he would have been without having to wait for Healy to lose his spot….
Now go back and drop everyone with over 20 tests and get Law, Maher and Siddons in there.

Australia's unlucky XI from the 2000s golden era

“tightest NRL finals race in years” ?????

What, tighter than 4 teams finishing on 34 points and 4 teams finishing on 32 points last year? How do you even get any tighter?

The Storm already has this year’s minor premiership locked up and spots down to 6 in the finals aren’t going anywhere. The last few games just see who are in the bottom 2 of the eight and sort the order of places 2 – 6.

We could be set for the tightest NRL finals race in years

No, no more knee jerk rule changes. If you don’t want to make the ingoal, don’t try and get there 🙂 We have so many new crap rules trying to cover for the odd corner case that just doesn’t happen that often. Sometimes a team just gets an advantage because they are smarter, and that’s life
