All 4 sides won again on the weekend. There will be lots more people getting on these trains this week!

All aboard the NRL train

Me too. It actually reminded me of my first ever Roar article. Think you might like it/relate: https://www.theroar.com.au/2013/02/12/remember-the-1989-grand-final-i-sure-do/

Waqa Blake and Tyrone Peachey hopefully have lots of points ahead, they are two very good footballers. They’ll be a big factor in deciding if that Penrith line takes you to the Grand Final.

Part of my reasoning for writing it was exactly your point Paul. It will be very interesting to see if they can keep it going, as all have shown early promise and faded. I like that some of the people switching trains and getting carried away by the train they are on, are starting to make some definitive and bold claims. It is all part of what I love about footy fans. This early, it is all wishful thinking and speculation, but it’s fun to dream, hope and guess.

Thanks for getting on board with the train analogy too!

What if the Warriors get to win in 2018 as a compromise?

Me too, I don’t start betting before Round 4, but keen to see how all the new combinations work out.

Thanks Riley, I’ve got my pies in the oven and am ready…

I agree, they were hilarious – thanks for the link.

NSW State of Origin rituals ready for game I

Thanks – I should declare I don’t have any shares in Puffy Dogs, and I only eat them during State of Origin for some reason…lol.

Wow – no wins in the history of Facebook, that puts it in perspective.

I hope so – I was more referring to the talk around the team than the reality of any changes. It’ll be talk of the halves and changes to forwards and switching the bench utility players – you know – the usual…

A puffy dog is a cocktail frankfurt, no skin, wrapped in puff pastry. There are pictures of them on the version of the article on my website (www.dearweetbix.com.au)

Wow. Thanks so much for all of the lively discussion. Some great points made. Liked reading the suggested improvements of others.

I wrote another article at the same time as this one. Check it out here:

If sport’s a drug, then hook me up

Thanks!

Six things that will improve the NRL

The Brumbies v Waratahs game is going to be a cracker. Hopefully everyone stays til the end!

To those who leave the rugby early

The Cookery Nook at Hawker in the ACT has a bunch of old League mags in the shop. It’s great fun reading through those…

Oh no, there's been a Footy Card price hike!

Can’t say I remember that Gary Jack one. Lol. The swapping and dealing and trading was a massive part of it. It’s why I’m dirty they are now $4 a pack.

Yeah, I had a hard time getting the Steelers one in ’88…

One of the reasons I didnt go a pie, was that it was actually a a warm night last Saturday. I normally love a good pie on those nights at Canberra Stadium when the wind is cutting through you and I use them as life support. Ah well, next time Gadget, next time…

To those who leave the rugby early

After the first try, they played Kris Kross “Jump” where I was, but I did notice the weird perpetual soundtrack, I realised I hadn’t heard “Enter Sandman” in a really long time…

To those who leave the rugby early

Thank to everyone who has commented so far on this piece.

I love being at the games to support the Brumbies, but I just love being in the crowd. One day I’ll be that old man I’m sure.

This is from my blog “Dear Weetbix”, but I’ll keep posting my sports related pieces here on The Roar, love the engagement with other sports fans.

To those who leave the rugby early

Ours were never that extravagant, but that sounds awesome. Reminds of the Boxing Day tests, where the cricket is good, but the watching the spectators shenanigans is also a big part of it.

That is a great story, it’s that sort of stuff that I generally love about sport.
