Why the 2020 NRL premiership will be forever tainted

Yeah, Glenn Burgess was fullback. Turvey bombed him all day prompting the rule change regarding catching the pill in-goal.

On the wing for Saints, he was a schoolboy superstar. Ended up at Wests.

Hi Pickett,

Your recollection inspired me to dig deeper. I found this in Steve Haddan’s The Finals 100 Years of National Rugby League Finals, p235:

‘Mick O’Connor was elbowed early, and Graeme Wynn – always dangerous around the ruck early – was king hit from behind by Peter Kelly and then Steve Mortimer after a scrum close to the St George line. He was ineffective for the remainder of the match and, amazingly, Canterbury came up with the penalty on both occasions.’

Deserves an *?

Good wrap, hope you’re right. What ever happens will still be ranked by experts and punters alike.

The fans’ opinion counts too, roasting half baked mates is what drives the game. You reckon punters will take a Rooster triple for real or welcome the Eels back to the winners circle. There will be more than just the winning side having a laugh.

Point taken, it will be a bumpy ride and the winner will be worthy for sure. But it’s still a compromised comp when compared to other titles, it’s just the way it is, they won’t have run the full marathon.

Cricket season overlap won’t be ideal as would playing in Qld, test of player power especially on reduced wages. #physiodream

Indeed, trying to locate a postponed round Big League is doing my head.

9 rounds would’ve felt like 24 if your horse went missing.

asterisk tatts – gold. Surely there’s one out there.

Sure is survival mode from 10 paces but I’ll be watching for sure. And if my team gets up – then it’ll be an against the odds story 🙂 😊 😊

I’m with you Albo, tough slog. If the comp runs into December it’ll be treated by many as a preseason for 2021.

I’ll aim to meet at the club prior to kick off, I’ll have to scoot at full time.

Cheers, Jason
