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

This is very serious, not only for him but for heaps of other players. Paul Green and Steve Folkes as former guys off the top of the head. But why is Teddy still playing. Feeding crumbs to the pigeons in the park sucks.

'There were no decisions to make': Skipper drops retirement bombshell after doctors' grave warnings

That young boy, Chevy Stewart, who plays FB for the Raiders has got MVP written all over him in the future. He’s 18 and he was absolutely smashed in one tackle at least the other night – and got straight back up to play the ball. Did you see that ? More senior guys have moped about. Very impressive young lad.

Yes, when I said could, it was on the assumption that he later replace Teddy, after, as I assume, Teddy plays game 1. But the more I think about it, if Teddy is picked for game 1 , then he’s there for the series. You don’t change fullback if you can avoid it. Or look like you made a mistake. Anyway, I’m with you because his stats are good and he’s in form.

Wild idea but Blues should actually pick Origin team on form this time around - and that means Tedesco’s time is up

I watched Alfie Langer. Alfie Langer was a first pick of mine. Latrell, he’s no Alfie Langer.

Too old, too slow: Do these two stats explain why Souths have fallen off a cliff in 2024?

I was only looking at Teddy’s stats last week. Still good. Now Teddy vs Edwards, and who would I want at the back behind me ? Is Teddy better than Edwards, and who might be there in three years time ? Teddy won’t be there, Edwards might be barring injury. Edwards is outstanding. Teddy has had an outstanding career. Teddy is three years older. As you know, age is cruel to all athletes ( except down at the Avalon Bowling Club). It is a hard call, Teddy still has a game. If you think Edwards could be picked for games 2 and or 3, then I’d pick him for 1.

You’ve said it all. Q.E.D.

Yeah, give the Wahs a point. Keep their spirits up. Very intriguing game. Both sides showed they have a lot in the tank. Particularly the Warriors who have the mark of Greatness on them this year.

The Dogs will toughen up mentally as a result of the end strokes to the game. They could have had a victory this evening. I guess it’s when you taste the bitterness of defeat, then you understand the importance of victory.

Des has lost it. The proof of that is his signature on the Titans’ contract.

Five and a kick: Manly hates you, but should you love them? And are Ricky's Raiders fun now too?

I hope they’re on to it. The Psychiatrists are the medication experts and can diagnose and prescribe stuff for mental illnesses to keep them under control. Psychologists can’t do that, because they’re not doctors. There’s no shame in it. He’ll play footy for longer that way, which is what we all want.

'I don't know what goes through Latrell's mind': Mitchell on report twice as Wahs dominate sorry Souths

On the sacred ground of Brookie Oval today, we didn’t just witness a victory for the True Believers, we witnessed the sunlight of spontaneous and creative footy break through the leaden clouds of Robo Play. The soil beneath the turf at Brookie is alive, and for decades it has called to the players above it to enjoy themselves, throw it around, and back themselves and their talent. And today they listened to that call and to the music of the breezes winding between the stands, and did just that. Take the earplugs out Siebold.

Feel your pain. Some terrible beatings early this Season. But as for Latrell, I’m serious when I say he needs to be checked out by Psychiatrist. There is something not right with him. The Club should intervene if no one else will.

Yep, that was particularly a shocker he let in when he came in from the wing. Goes to show that even professional first graders can do dumb things that half decent schoolboy players would never dream of. Which never ceases to amaze me. Enjoy the weekend !

Dragons have dodged a bullet by letting Lomax go early – but only if they box clever to replace him

By the way, he’s the third highest all time point scorer for the Dragons after Soward and Widdop.

Andrew I pretty much always agree with you, but I must respectfully disagree about Lomax. It’s Lomax who is pulling the pin on Saints, isn’t it? Lomax is a good player in a dud outfit and gets as much chance to shine as Ado-Carr does at Belmore these days. There are only two players who have scored more points for the Dragons : Jamie Soward and Gareth Widdop.

Well caught: ‘right now’. He just blurted it out. Ciraldo has lost. Gould will be saying to him, ‘ And another thing, I coached Canterbury to a Premiership when you were still only four years old.’ He’s now an empty shirt. But he walked into it because Gould signed on a year before him. Gould probably had a hand in hiring him because he promoted him to coaching roles at Penrith where Gould would have said, ‘ And another thing, I was Captain of the Panthers at the age of 20 years old.’ This is going to be horrible to watch. Got to feel for the bloke, even if he was a disaster last year.

Very droll. I think Barrett was gone within six weeks of Gould giving him his full support.

Richardson says he thinks they’re a top four club. That, at least, is the right sort of of attitude because if you don’t finish in the top four, you are not likely to win the Comp. He seems to get on OK with Benji – Benji is a good young Coach I think. But what I like in particular is the focus on the fact of 9 or 10 thousand juniors. They’ll be a Development Club rather than a Recruitment Club going forward I assume, which saves money and gives you a chance to have a long hard look at the young men coming through. All sounds great, but the harsh reality is, if they don’t win games on the Weekend, there will be pressure on Benji and pressure on Richardson. I like the Tigers style of play so far this year, good luck to them because God knows they need a break or two.

Great post

Getting value for money from stars is the biggest competitive advantage in the NRL - and the flip side can be devastating

Congratulations to the Dragons. As for Manly. Remember the Mighty Sea Eagles? There is no greater sorrow than to recall happiness in this time of misery. Nothing else can be said by us poor, feeble fans. The rest is silence.
