Cheers OCSB, feedback appreciated.

The disconnect tugging at Sydney cricket's grassroots

Do you reckon he had the excuse in his kitbag before kickoff?

Who will tell Marty Taupau that biosecurity hits harder than Jack Hetherington?

Handy bloke to have waiting in the wings.

Yeah, the Panthers game is part of the suspension.

I see your point Baz, just not sure it fits the crime assuming a send off is warranted. It’s not uncommon for coaches to finish a game without using the #17, so question whether it’s a light tax.

On the other hand, in the past few years plenty of teams have out scored the opposition despite having a man in the bin.

I like the theory but in practice it’s another can of worms. Cheap shot merchants selected to sacrifice themselves for the scalp of a key opponent. Even if that sounds fanciful there will always be uncomfortable elements of doubt and rage.

Happy golfing, kk. As souvalis points out below, Marty is certainly no angel but what struck me about Friday nights shot was how deliberate it looked. In real time from the Arko stand it looked premeditated right to giving himself up. Subsequent replays do little to sway my opinion.

Hetherington’s a cracking player but he should’ve continued up the tunnel and onto the bus last Friday night.

Yep, kinda feel for Perenara, mixed messages making his job harder. All comes back to confusion by unnecessary buzz words and terms like ‘inside shoulder’, ‘professional foul’. Let the guys call it as they see it, even if it’s through the eyes of the bunker.

There’s always going to be mistakes, only makes it worse when Annersely rubs our faces in it.

Good fella is Ray – I was at Bankwest that night. Rugby League thrives on a pay back – fair play souvalis.

Thanks Phil. I don’t disagree, Bennett’s punishment deserved. I’m just saying there’s a disconnect, Hetherington dodged a bullet that Taupau couldn’t.

My bad Baz, put it down to a late night submission …that doesn’t help either, does it.

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.

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

Pig farmers unite, kk.

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.
