Welcome Dane. Nice wrap mate. Hope you’re right about the Sea Eagles.

Tips and predictions for NRL Round 12

You’ve seen your share, kk. No doubting this end.

Smith remains the game’s best player because Tedesco disappears in big moments

This year for sure, it’ll be part of Dessie’s plan against Parra.

Dark horse? Penrith might just be the only certainty of 2020

Ha. No different to gibberers like us on here then. There’s hope for us all, well most anyway.

Dark horse? Penrith might just be the only certainty of 2020

Yep, agree. Still away to go before they have the consist resolve of the usual front runners. But if windows are a thing then the Panthers are close. Plenty of names on the rise, just like their pay demands as the wins mount, be interesting to see how many are still on the books after another 2-3 years.

Even though Api already has a premiership ring, he could be just the Priddis the Panthers need.

Is the Manly merge in the current 50 year cycle, I’m up for anything. Moylan and Turbo in a battle for the front row seat.

Pig farmers unite, kk.

If Kent, Hoops and Hitch are stumped for words, narrative is the filler. Surely kk, of all the busted years, the Storm/Easts narrative is dead. Battle of the west makes sense so long as it’s not branded the narrative we had to have.

Form hides everything hey, what the Sea Eagles would do for a win.

Dark horse? Penrith might just be the only certainty of 2020

Did Gus eventually settle on 5 years, is that now or are we getting ahead of ourselves?

Dark horse? Penrith might just be the only certainty of 2020

Tend to agree. Looks like a four horse race but with 11 rounds to go anything can happen.

Sounds like I could do with your help, what’s the topic?

Top-eight twists will be a formality as warp-speed fallout takes hold

Just because Robbo didn’t know doesn’t mean another in a Roosters tie dealt facts that you don’t care about.

I’m worried about Marty, he doesn’t possess the authority around the middle as per previous years. Certainly doesn’t run with as much purpose and it seems Des has coached the offload out of him.

The Suli loss has been undervalued too, his footwork and punch through the line is a big loss.

Manly will come good, the combinations will improve. Just a matter of coming up with enough wins to keep them in the race for the return of Tom and Dylan.

Eight talking points from NRL Round 7

Well played Sharks. SJ and Moylan stood out but the Eagles were bashed up front by a hungrier pack. Turbo wouldn’t have changed the result.
Seibold finally exposed as a fraud. That presser was disgraceful, worse than his team’s effort on the park. Directionless, clueless and uninspiring. Apparently he white anted Madge then hid behind an established combination. Apparently white anted Bennett and has now been exposed. For me he and White must be replaced.
Parra are the real deal, they hit hard every week. Another physical performance put the out of sorts Raiders away.
Finally, Corey Horsburgh, I just love him. A prime-time must. Get well big fella we miss you already.

Cheers Andre glad you enjoyed it.

The disconnect tugging at Sydney cricket's grassroots

All good. I love watching Easts too, entertaining and skilful.

Was it a beat up or another part of the club making claims out side the playing squad. Don’t under sell the Dragons here, they gave your guys a decent contest.

Chill man, the three peat is still on.

And who’d seriously consider taking on the Warriors. Tooves is already mad, he’s probably the only serious candidate. But with a faceless CEO, everyone will always be looking over their shoulder.

I’m running with the Dr tag, kk. Pity my neighbours.

Supercars, great summation. Parra v Raiders was ferocious, wouldn’t want to be Horsburgh’s little brother. Parra the real deal, I reckon they’ll cover Moses’ absence but have they got the bash until October.

Cheers Nat. Will Seibold be choosing next week’s lineup???

Sustainability a massive issue. That said, it’s tough enough trying to score a gig to see any match.

There’s merit in quarters for the remainder of 2020 but would you continue it in 2021 assuming the players are better prepared?

Your not wrong Paul, already there’s a few sides caught between a rock and a hard place. Wouldn’t be a coach for quids.
