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

Maybe Dale Shearer. And who could forget Lotte Turquiri. Not a lot of time in the jumper I guess, but geez, good players.

Brisbane's greatest NRL team

…… and I had forgotten Mr Boyd. Until now.

Great post

What’s the news on those two ? Are they pulling the pin on Melbourne?

Naden is a 100% weapon in my book. I want him on my side.

They’ll be fine. Look at the Sea Eagles. They’ve always had to travel to play the GF.

The NRL needs a Panthers grand final win, but Cam Smith will get his fairytale

In my honestly held personal opinion, I don’t think perpetrators of cowardly assaults should be showing up in any ‘best of’ teams which are marketed to the general public. Until the NRL actually gets out of the back lanes, the AFL and Soccer will continue to cut its lunch. But that’s for another day. Ask yourself how many players you wouldn’t want showing up to take your daughter or granddaughter out. You’d set the hounds on to them.

Tim, that’s an interesting proposition. I think CNK could rove around the backs. He’d handle winger or the centres with ease. I can even see him as a sort of injury free Foran figure at 5/8. But he has so much to offer, and that talent is best exploited at FB in my humble opinion. Look, Croker has had an absolutely magnificent career on any measure. I think his best is behind him and I think he’d likely fail at FB – with due respect to him

I’ll second that.

HaHa. That’s bloody funny.

To me, I get the vibe that Havili is the guy you get when you need to make up the numbers. Sometimes you need that. Sometimes you don’t.

He’s widely known as a soup king to this day. Tired and emotional I mean.

Why are the comments cut off from the live game.

Raiders and Storm to be decided by epic battle of the forwards

I’m happy with that. I’ve got nothing against Penrith, but I’m still bitter and twisted about The Boys’ 6-40 loss to Storm down in Melbourne in 2017.

I’m not a gambler – that’s not strictly true because I go to sleep each night – but I would be putting my money on a Bleak City and Panthers GF. But I’m happy to be wrong.

Good article mate.

Is this the worst Queensland Maroons team in history?

Excellent analysis and a good read.

NSW State of Origin selection surprises (part 3)

Great observations RoryStorm. I totally agree with you.

Daniel Tupou in for Blake Ferguson but Freddie still names four Eels in Blues squad

I think he needs to start moving out of it yesterday. Great player but, you know.

Exactly.

Daniel Tupou in for Blake Ferguson but Freddie still names four Eels in Blues squad

I know he’s injured, but you can sense the desire to pick Turbo. But you can’t pick him on form, can you? As for those blokes who actually play each week, I’m on board with the suggested debutantes on form. For different reasons, I don’t think Cordner should play and I don’t think he should be selected. When you examine the relentless history of concussions ( and ‘head knocks’ to play down the observation of apparent concussions) that this man has suffered, he should be transitioned out of the game for the sake of his health. If he were to be found gibbering over a fruit juice in years to come, his career will have faded from the memory of most.

He was at his best at Balmain.

How can Brad Fittler justify dropping David Klemmer for Origin?

I was disturbed by the thought of ‘torn labrum’, until I looked up what a labrum was. I’d never heard of it, but it occurs to me that it could serve as a fake insult as in, ‘ mate, you are a dead set labrum’.
