Support the Mighty Sea Eagles. Arguably one of the greatest strategic minds directed at Rugby League.

Yeah, all the colour and movement aside, the facts are the facts. Obviously I was disappointed with the result, but the event preceded the result.

Six talking points from South Sydney Rabbitohs vs Manly Sea Eagles NRL semi-final

I want to preview the script of the Souths and Canberra game.

You’ve hit the nail on the head about the points let in.

I’d like a preview of the the script for Canberra and Souths.

Souths sneak past the brave Sea Eagles on their way to Canberra

Thank you mentioning Tapau! He doesn’t get enough credit for his game in that department.

Big Sam should be applauded for standing his ground with the NRL

Isn’t that a tautology?

Whatever happens, surely Des must be in line for a Companion of the Order of Australia in January.

The Roar’s NRL expert tips and predictions: Semi-finals

It is not a good look for any team to be smashed 0-58. It says there is a real question as to whether they should be playing. I mean, the sport of boxing tries to even up the contests so guys don’t get badly injured, and that there is a fair fight. That side wasn’t first grade standard.

DB, that’s it for me mate. I’m never touching the stuff again. Strewth.

Five talking points from Manly Sea Eagles vs Cronulla Sharks NRL elimination final

…bit dusty this morning. Love him or not, Gal has been a unit. Psychology is such an interesting thing. Manly monstered the visitors for the first ten minutes, and the relationship was pretty well set from there. Sharks on an off night caught Manly on a good night is how I saw it. DCE and AFB are legends. And, how good is Brookie.

For mine, this is the most interesting game of the round.

Just a really dumb thing for him to do. He’s supposed to be a professional. Terrible judgment.

NRL's battle of the beaches

I think either team is buggered next weekend. It’ll be like Gallipoli. Both sides will be trying to at least go out this year on a high note. I hope the loser on the night does go out on a high note. I would like to see the ball thrown around, a fast game, and that we see a few Wingers’ tries. Neither side is on the same floor as the top four, but both have had a good season all things considered. I’ll be there in my black suit as usual with my globite containing a cheese sandwich and a thermos of – just straight up coffee of course. Go Manly, but good on the folks who make the trip from the Shire. There would be plenty of clubs happy to have supporters like you. Good job.

Give him a rest this week. He’s wearing the wrong colours, but I think we enjoy watching him play when fully fit. Great player.

Storm hopeful of Munster return for final

Boom boom tching !

The biggest question to be answered for each NRL final

I’ll be there. It’s going to be a tough game for the Boys.

Brookie is on for the Sharks game! Cronulla last won there in 2008. Go Manly !

The biggest question to be answered for each NRL final

Maaaate. Anyway, the finals should be bloody great – at least for the top four. On form, it would have to be a coin toss between those beetroots at Bondi and Melbourne. But, no science or logic behind this, one of the voices in my head keeps saying Canberra . Gotta do something about that.

A bandwagoner’s guide to the 2019 NRL finals series

Good article. Storm look the business, but the Roosters – and on some flukes the Raiders – could pick up the title if Storm get Malaria. Souths haven’t got the killer instinct. Nobody else is a contender. Manly, well Manly showed where they sit in the pack, but what a great year for them and Des. If Turbo has ripped his pec or the tendon he needs surgery or he’ll lose half the power of the other side, and be in a world of pain. They must give him, for his benefit, the rest of the year (such as it may turn out to be) off and him to get ready to tell Santa what he wants for Christmas. Newcastle fans – you can’t say it but I can: you pack of miserable numbats. May a man named Tinkler become your son-in-law. Penrith : honestly, get a map out and look at the Catholic Boys High School within a 20 km radius. They contain a better first grade side and more depth, and any of you blokes reading this could coach them to glory without a doubt.
But the highlight of the round, if not the season, was in the 36th minute of Wests V Dragons. A scrum packed, the Tigers had the feed – and the Dragons won the scrum against the feed. My dream to discover a four legged duck has now come back to life!

Seven talking points from NRL Round 24

You are quite correct. In any event, as far back as the 1950s from my own memory, everybody who lives on the Northern beaches and lower north shore have always just called it Brookvale Oval, or Brookie Oval. The football club can call it Planet Neptune if they want. It has always been, and always will be, Brookie as far as the public is concerned.

Get set for the battle of Brookvale this Saturday night

The Sun never sets on Brookvale Oval.

Manly vs Melbourne: A history of hate

I don’t think you’re one-eyed. I think you’ve summed it pretty well.

Manly vs Melbourne: A history of hate

Yeah that was the real deal back in the 70s. Wests and Manly. You might remember that Manly thought ‘ if we can’t beat em ,we’ll buy em’, and Manly bought three of their guys at once : Ray Brown, John Dorahy, and Les Boyd.
