Didn’t Sri Lanka play there instead though?

CA wants clarity from India over Gabba Test

Did India opt out of playing at the gabba last Tour as well? Or was that just a coincidence?

It’s very much the jets bid mate. There’s plenty of articles that still call the “Western corridor” bid the jets bid. Take a look – https://www.google.com/amp/s/coupler.foxsports.com.au/api/v1/article/amp/nrl/nrl-premiership/nrl-2020-expansion-brisbane-peter-vlandys-redcliffe-dolphins-easts-tigers-ipswich-jets-and-brisbane-bombers/news-story/ff06b32de4bafa766d30d5647a73aba9

The 17th NRL team? There’s only one answer

I think you’ll find that the “Western corridor” bid isn’t a brand new entity, it’s a rebranding of the Ipswich jets. The Brothers bid probably deserved a mention as well

To be fair its pretty much how he’s defended all critisism as NSW coach, it’s just that he’s been given a free pass until now. He’s never had to use it to defend a series loss before

Fittler learns from Origin series defeat

How does an article titled “Fitler learns from Origin series defeat” end with the quote “I refuse to waste my time at night”? What did I just read? It read like a daytime infomercial that was building up to sell mattresses or something…

Cowboys were robbed!!

The Broncos have one hand on the 2021 wooden spoon

surely enough of the cap’s been freed to make some more permanent acquisitions by now- Bird, Boyd, Joe O, Fifita got a fair chunk between them

Broncos sign Cowboy Asiata

No chance mate, he’ll get given every excuse under the sun. The old boys have been pushing for him as coach since 2014 and I’m sure his media mates can drag out blaming Siebold for at least another 12 months

Did we end up getting Mead? Actually, I dunno if I want to know

You don’t normally rebuild a team on one year deals

They had to get rid of it before Farrah came through, he would’a been waving the markers away whenever he got tackled 😛

No such thing as wingers mate, just wasted fullbacks

The good and the bad of the NRL's rule changes

The problem is that tht’s what they were doing originally and every blew up as decisions were overturned against thier own teams…

Are we taking bets on the first player to get a challenge back that tries to use it immediately on the same call?

Fans would still have to overcome the clubs latest ad offering…

'Tis the season to be silly: Let's talk NRL expansion

The problem with committees is that is rarely publicly stated what they’ve been specifically asked to do. I remember when the NRL said that an independent committee they’d set up had found that shoulder charges were too dangerous and had to go only for several members of said committee to later feel the need to clarify and say that they were informed that the shoulder charge was going to be banned and their job was to come up with how to ban it. And I’ve gotta say that it does seem strange having the chairman of the board on what’s usually promoted as an independent committee

I think Robbie Farrah was the reason

I still don’t understand the rational used for bringing it in (aside from appeasing certain fans).
“So, to fix teams abusing stoppages around penalties we’re introducing more six agains to keep the game flowing! Also, each team gets a free extended stoppage around a penalty or play of their choosing so that teams can’t say the ref is costing them games. Also, you can’t challenge most of the decisions now anyway because they’re play ons… “

At least this time it’s before the start of the season…

You had no right to bring that up!

So essentially it’d be the same as when the bunker would whisper in the refs ear to check something that everyone blew up about a couple seasons ago, just cutting out the formality of including the ref. I wasn’t actually against that but it’ll be interesting to see what the reaction is once a media approved side gets try gets reversed off screen.

So if no one’s asking to stop the clock for cramps then this rule wouldn’t apply to that anyway and cramps will continue as per usual given that this rule only applys specifically to trainers requesting a stoppage and not just treating players in general play

Just for clarity, does the new bunker in the background thing mean that basicly every try is now essentially going to the video ref but the review isn’t getting aired?

Sorry, didn’t realise he was above reproach, guess I’ll just learn my place…
