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

How well you know me. Ha ha.

Bulldogs' bark is worse than their bite: Defence needs mending as Ciraldo gambles with star recruit in make-or-break year

PVL is a one off. Extremely capable man, as well as having a good lip. Abdo has been promoted beyond his ability. The culture within his realm is toxic and dysfunctional from what little birdies tell me. Plus he is terrified of talent apparently. Usual story for blokes who spend 99% of their time protecting their job.

NRL News: Kiwis knock back Wayne for NZ legend, PVL may make early Commission exit, Cleary makes call on Luai for final

Throw them around the Park in the pre-season games and have a look I reckon. So long as something sticks. This Club has been so hard to watch for , gee , probably over ten years now. I’m half thinking of running out for them myself.

Exactly. Also, Des might have a year’s grace with the Titans – or does he ? They have outstanding forwards, pretty tidy backs. But they just never play proper footy. Unless they play Manly when they always put it together. Bloody Titans.

I’m sure we’ll see a movie released starring Flanno titled, Poisoned Challice.

'Our focus is 2025': Flanno dampens Dragons hopes as he admits pre-season fitness struggles

Sea Eagles play best when they play like schoolboys First XIII. Joy, belief, abandon in attack, and textbook defence. Always have done. Just let them explore and play like back in the Beaver Menzies days,

'We don’t want to do what everyone else does': How 'live attack' became Manly's mantra for 2024

Manly should only regard Turbo as an Exhibition Player. If you were planning to win the Comp, Turbo would not be part of that plan. Nice to have him, but history tells us we don’t have him all that often. He has an AFL body really. And the result is constant serious injuries. I don’t want to Jinx him, but we Manly Men need to be realistic.

Very hard to pick between 1 and 10. They’re all great, aren’t they ? Good stuff.

Great comment Geoff. There is no time like the present as far as Strange is concerned. Play him. I’d put him at 5/8 too as you suggest, but I think he’ll turn out to be a formidable Centre. I suppose you are happy with Sticky. Lord knows, I never begrudge a bloke earning a quid, but deep down do you think he is the man for the job?

Ricky v the rookies: Sticky has to turn to youth to replace Wighton, but who should it be?

They all end up driving me to the same place DP – the Mental Asylum.

2024 is the Year of the Dragon, but it looks like St George Illawarra didn’t get the memo

As long as I’m not the chauffeur. It’s been a long time since I’ve been likely to be under 0.05

Not from Avalon to Brookie Oval. Sadly.

This article is a simply superb situational analysis of the Dragons’ reality. It is the Year of the Dragon, but it’s the year of the Wood Dragon. Let’s pray that’s an omen for virility rather than the spoon. I’d be leaving a Business Class ticket to Brisbane at the front desk for Hunt, and just tell him to fill in the date. I’m probably the only guy to say this, but I’ve got a lot of time for Lomax. Just saying. Totally agree about Meaney. He has Red and White all over him. Nikorima ? Would want to wear the number 6 jersey I guess, but he’ll be 31 by Easter of next year. Mind you, DCE turns 35 ! in a couple of weeks. So Nikorima could have a bit of life left in him, but I’d be looking around for younger guys who want to play First Grade – as your rightly point out. There are plenty of planes up there circling the airport, and any of them would be stoked to get clearance to land.

I was shocked to learn today that Beaver Menzies is now 50 years old. I’m not saying he could be another Beaver , but if the Northern Beaches ban on supplying him with Kristy Kremes holds, he could be a kind of hybrid of Beaver and Gifty Stewart. Could be . He’s now playing where he should be. No warm ups this year. Play big, strong, fast. Use the hands. Hurt the opponent. He’s got enough experience now. If he doesn’t deliver this year, take the hit and move him on at a discount if need be.

Schuster v Schuster: If Manly can bring back 2021 Josh, they'll have one of the NRL's best backrowers

You just took the words right out of my mouth about DCE. He’s the only long term, big money guy I can think of who actually shows up week after week. I can’t even remember the last time he missed a game.

JT v Cotter: It's not yet time to put Taumalolo out to pasture, but the Cowboys need to rethink what he is

I’ll give you this Christo – you’ve got a pair of big ones. Dunno about the GC down there at that end. Des might be able to breathe a bit of life into them. I mean, on paper anyway, they don’t stack up as entirely useless. Wests are completely an unknown quantity at present in my humble opinion. I don’t think Addo-Carr is going to get much quality ball out on the side line again this year, but he did score two tries against- Wests – at Belmore early last Season from memory. I hate to say it, but barring a miracle, the Dogs should have a bleak season ( but will probably smash Manly because, well Manly’s just like that ). So the Dogs should give Mum a present to stir the Cake Mix.

Nice problem to have.

Exactly. Robbo is no fool by any stretch.

Maybe Kyle Dandilocks can let Manly off the nepotism hook by offering Zac Fulton a cubicle as well.

Just like in rugby union, rugby league nostalgia is not what it used to be

In short, no.

It’s not a proper Season if JWH doesn’t have strife with Officialdom and spend time in the Stands.
