Shouldn’t leave My Druitt Hey.?

The Roar's NRL expert tips and predictions, Round 1: Who will hit the jackpot in Vegas?

They are playing on a postage stamp. South’s only score 15 % down the guts. The Broncs aren’t much better.
Roosters and Manly to win using the rush . Wide receivers are out of the game.

It’s the cashed up bit you don’t like. Young men ( a lot from disadvantaged backgrounds) making good money. Im sorry it hurts.

With respect the furore around Pascoe for ages was huge, and also with guys like Smith as CEO and Beattie etc etc..
Their maleness didn’t buy immunity from criticism. I never liked Smith but he was deluged with hate at a level rarely seen even in RL.

V'landys may as well be executive chair because he's doing both jobs but league needs to fix lack of female leadership

No we learn this new concept called competence. Beattie wasn’t competent and he’s male so bye bye.
I’m lucky to have some incredibly competent females in my life but they ain’t competent because they are female.

V'landys may as well be executive chair because he's doing both jobs but league needs to fix lack of female leadership

Absolutely agree . But extending that to females is not the way forward.

We need a Russian orthodox chairman with red hair.

Great to see Mick. The womens game is going places.

I agree . In Jones v Ikin I take Jones, in Jones v Beatie I take Jones . But in a larger pool all three would run near the tail. Get female , get a guy ,get a non-binary but please get someone who knows what the f they are doing and especially someone not tainted by political allegiance.

I think that Wahs are certs to make the 8 but I’m not so sure about top 4. Brisbane have one spot , Penrith have another and the Storm a third.
One spot left and maybe 5 contenders .
If the Wahs finish 6th or 7th its another good season even it their fans dont think so.

Why Warriors are no certainty to make finals again despite overwhelming wave of optimism

Couldn’t agree more . I give you Peter Beattie as a prime example. Pollies of every ilk need not apply.

A bit of both Ken. He missed about 8 games for us due to the court case . He was exonerated so it’s hard to be too critical but he’s one of those guys close to the edge.
Now a drink driving charge. Very low range so again it’s not awful stuff but silly.
As far as on field goes , my only complaint was we recruited him on 700k when we were struggling to keep Nanai and Luki.
I’m biased so I would much rather have local boys than imports , even if the imports are better . He’s not better than Nanai amd he’s not better than Luki so I was pleased to see him leave.

Believe it or not, Luciano Leilua is a marquee player - just a wildly overpaid one cashing in on Dragons' desperation

I only know the Cows did well out of this.

Or ‘that’s not a penalty ‘ according to MY rules.

In 2024, we need to leave the NRL’s favourite topic alone - it’s time to shut up about referees

The problem is there is so much misunderstanding from the main protagonists. I rarely hear Gus Gould quote the actual law or current interpretation . He says ‘that’s not a penalty’ . The translation for that is if I were in control i would make sure that’s never penalised . He has a vision in his mind and criticises deviations from that vision.
Many others are the same.
So you have 1 the actual rule, 2 the current interpretation of that rule and 3 the unwritten rule in peoples brains.
Ref’s have no hope.

Spot on . It’s no different from policing society in general. Everyone , including the most law abiding of us regularly break the black letter law. We often just get away with it but just as often it’s just let go.
The object is a functioning society ( or RL game ) not a prison camp.

My problem is never the Ref. Ref’s make real time decisions with imperfect information. They are pretty darn good at it. I’m actually amazed how accurate they are in kicking contests . Remarkable.
Where I am completely intolerant is with the bunker . They are making it up as they go. Ref’s understand the importance of precedent ( mostly ) where the bunker keeps referring only to black letter law. They forget that ‘common law’ is just as important. Hence we get the Billy Slater ‘ drop kick’ and the Hodgeson ‘ no knock on’. Plus their incomprehensible take on obstruction.
Can the bunker and I can live with it all . The beautiful messiness of RL. Embrace it.

Lolitis is dead set right. Perth before PNG. Go the Bears.!

Agree on Zac , he’s done enough to get first go at that centre position. My only concern is that he was out muscled twice in front on defence. Once leading to a try but he’s a really smart player with great hands. I like him.
As for Jase ? I complained about the 10 year deal from day one. It’s dumb business. Three more years , man , oh man.
Where do you sit on Feldt v Valamai. ? I lean to Valamai although Feldt is better in the air . Not sure really.

Yeah, I agree. You can forgive youthful enthusiasm to some degree but he can’t do it again. It’s dangerous.

Nah I have the Titans 1.80. Not much in it.

Oh absolutely. He’s a club legend and GF try scorer. But time is up on his playing days .

Really confident young kid and such a good defender.

Yeah, agree. Last year for Chad, Feldty, Macca and Jake. We can’t be stupid and re sign any of these guys. As you say our young talent is just too good.

I tell them to butt out too. I’m not polite.
