Really well. Looks like the change has done him good. Came off the bench but still the first Dragon to get over 100m. Good post contact metres and quick play the balls.

Warriors post upset win over the Dragons

There has got to be something more to this. Maybe, just maybe, Bellamy is on his way to the shire and is starting to call the shots.

Backing, not sacking, young coaches is what brings results

Maybe a tad too early and I seriously hope I am wrong.

I love talking about this stuff now, well at least since the Sharks won 1

Why your team can win the 2021 NRL premiership

Big improvement will be 16th to 1st. As you can guess, it’s not easy making a case for some teams. But, thanks for your comment anyway.

Why your team can win the 2021 NRL premiership

Yes, I think around 3 weeks should be sufficient. I’m normally happy to write off my team after Round 1

My family and I were lucky enough to get tickets in the ballot to that night. I just remember the noise, the camera flashes and absolute elation in the crowd when she won. Best night of live sport I’ve ever been to.

We are tipping through the finals so there’s a way to go yet

Bugger, I told Scotty it was time to fiddle the books. Looks like the message got lost in translation

Bugger, looks like I will only take 2 off AJ’s lead this weekend

Thanks, my ladder climb begins this week

The Roar’s NRL expert tips and predictions: Round 13

Sharks are decimated tonight. Before the start of the season, our best case backline would have been 1. Moylan, 2. Morris, 3. Xerri, 4, Ramien, 5. Dugan, 6. Johnson and 7. Townsend. Only Johnson is playing tonight. Fifita remains out. I’m a Sharks fan but we should be outsiders at Suncorp

Tips and predictions for NRL Round 12

Freddy wants to solve an “identity crisis” by merging 4 Sydney clubs where tribalism represents a fair chunk of their supporter bases. How does this make any sense at all? He’s nuts

I’m a Sharks supporter but have gone the Broncos this week. This is exactly the type of match that Cronulla will forget to show up at.

It’s beautiful, isn’t it….

I think a better attitude leads to resilience.

Resilience is the problem at the Broncos

sorry, what?

stop it kk, I feel like I am going to vomit.

Keep them coming, kk. AJ is going to sink under a sea of compliments.

Well, you are destined to get at least the Tigers vs Rabbits correct

I guess the real point is why is there a need to mix the game up when the players and fans are happy the way it is. I get your point about basketball. It’s worth remembering though that the WNBL is long established in Australia but Super Netball is much more popular. A Super Shot is not guaranteed to bring any new supporters through the door

Super Netball doesn't need to change

I’m in touch with reality, thanks, and the reality is the large majority of fans and players want the game to stay as is.
