The Wizards' magic number is 54

With the Pacers facing a Lance Stephenson issue, the Bulls relying on Derrick Rose being healthy, the Cavs needing to get Kyrie Irving to play defence and work off the ball and the Heat down grading from LeBron James to Luol Deng, the team I’ve got a man crush on out east is the Wizards.

Same tactics from NSW, same result

The talk coming into Origin III was how Ricky Stuart had unlocked the secret of new rugby league. No more props, it was going to be Dutch total football forward packs with a slew of back rowers capable of offloads and wearing down the opposing big guys with angled runs.

And making it illegal has done sweet scratooo to help society.

Is the Barbecue Wars title trademarked?

I believe you Nat 😊

There’s not that many jersey manufacturers, tough to see much of a sustained advantage here.

'It’s such a little thing but it’s such a big advantage': Do tight jerseys really matter?

Warriors get mentioned second paragraph.

Luai’s looked more the neck than head.

UPDATE: Nathan Cleary a free man for grand final despite being placed on report

That’s a stretch.

Not all you said…

It’s not so much that seedy underbelly. It’s just that the qualities that get you to become a doctor, let alone a club doctor, have nothing to do with being ethical. First three qualities that get you in the door are memory, rational problem solving and drive. Same three qualities that make a top shelf grifter.

The ethical standards we often talk about are really regulations because you need to overlay something which would be there if each individual self regulated. they get called ethics to make it sound more noble.

Even beyond that if you’re part of a club, paid by the club, work for the club longer than the average player will play… then you’re primarily invested in the club. That creates a bias to your decision making that is tough to overcome on the run.

Is it time for the NRL to consider neutral trainers?

Isn’t that basically the rule now?

Wasn’t the free interchange here was caused by the high shot on report earlier in the match.

Nat you realise that if we could trust that: then there wouldn’t be HIA’s and concussion protocols.

I’m probably more optimistic on the list management problem and surprised a Storm fan thinks that way. The talent exodus and vacuum would mean that this roster was coincidental rather than part of a longer term plan.

Whilst I got 99 problems with Gus his talent pathway ain’t one.

Now maybe Penrith haven’t gamed out a rolling three or four year roster plan, I doubt it but even so – as long as they didn’t shut down their junior recruitment program then they should have other young talent coming through.

And the second phase of the cycle is easier than the first because they’ll have two pieces of information that other bidding clubs don’t have: which players they feel shine because of the system, which roles they can most readily fill from their reserves.

If they didn’t keep investing in that junior talent pool well then they’re just poorly managed like many other heartland RL clubs.

To be honest, the victory is sweeter when everyone hates you.

Maloney’s boot throwing fired me up more when he was a rooster than when he was at other clubs.

Well you had to pay for it the year before with no benefits so yes it’s “free” not free

Who will bring the carnage in the NRL grand final?

There are some parallels with the Michigan fab 5. Young team, successful quicker than anticipated, does things that grate the older generations and…hasn’t actually put the results up to validate their confidence.

They’re buying their swagger with afterpay and hoping to earn the wins later to pay it off.

Personally I’ll remember them as the best team of 2020, yes they lost to Melbourne in the GF but over the whole season to me they were better. But… that isn’t how trophies get handed out in the NRL

Fans begrudging will accept arrogance when you’ve got silverware.

Now Luai is the “worst” in this regard. Cleary is coping the criticism for choking but for mine he’s doing the opposite – He’s playing his same game, he’s just not shifting from game manager to X factor. He’s Cronking it.

I’d be happy if my halfback doesn’t panic and sticks to the plan when we’re struggling if I’m a coach. If your team is this good patience is valuable.

The problem they have is that Jerome and the left edge are playing on tilt. He’s got more self belief than peak Anthony Mundine at the moment as isn’t playing the tackle on it’s merits.

There’s more swagger to me in not having to do that, knowing that your team will give you chances for the big play you just need to wait.

If they crash out this year and next it will be interesting to see how the locker room holds up between the grinders and gamblers.

A stable side sure. But sides that gutted their staff and changed structures I don’t think you do.

If things could be fixed in 6 months then no organisation would be broken.

It will also be interesting if they focus on processes or the w/l.

One hell of a cancer given no tigers coach has gotten away at 50% or better.

I doubt we will know any more in that time. Hasn’t he had to gut the staff?

It will be 3+ months before he’s hired the right new staff and what another three months before players and those assistants can even start to be familiar with each other and the systems.

This is a window dressing solution to a problem they don’t want to define.
