Wane is the only one on the 2 lists I’ll take

The Walker brothers were one trick ponies who got found out very quickly in Qld Cup, They will be found out even more quicker in the NRL

Maguire came from melbourne, went to England and then took Souths to a premiership

Patrick Mahomes signs richest deal in sports

both incidents resulted in a Leilua leaving the field, so in a way they are similar

No. Sydney embraced rugby league because the immigrants from the coalmines in northern England (where the game was born) came and worked in the coal mines in Newcastle and Wollongong,

Time to end the code wars, AFL and NRL can live in harmony

For nearly 2 decades half of the games profits went into the pockets of News Ltd, and the TV deals were News Ltd negotiating with News Ltd.

It’s hard to grow income and increase cash reserves as a game when that happens. AFL has never had to deal with that

I called them all individually, and I told them step by step what was needed to be done. Noen of them listened. The only people that listen to me are Politis and bellamy

Joey Leilua the “worst signing by any club in the NRL era”? Hmm, he may well be

Bird also has that $1 million option in his favour.

The salary cap was introduced in 1990. Canberra breached it in 1991, and the Gold Coast and North Sydney both breached it a couple of years later

The Broncos have slumped to a 15-year low after six losses in a row

The salary cap was introduced a couple of years before Brisbane won their first premiership

Rothfield, Kent and Hooper don’t dig. Their employer owns the club, and they will be told what to say about the situation and when.

Seibold is safe according to Broncos CEO

every “expert” bagged Fittler for making changes after a loss, and no changes after a win. They also had Wade Graham at 6 for game 3.

My NSW Blues side based on form

Fullback and halves pick themselves

Ferguson hasn’t scored a try all season. Addo Carr is playing well below his reputation. The kid at the Sharks and Topou at the Roosters are just two of many in better form (excluding Morris boys as they are retired from rep footy).

No issue with your starting pack (even though Saifiti had a shocker last week). Cook isn’t playing well, but I can’t see an alternative.

Raiders are one of the most powerful teams, and use that power to get all those ch9 games every year, and to attract big name signings to the club

Matt Rogers was a league winger, he was a playmaker in union. I’m sure the league boys will be fine

Can the All Blacks play rugby league?

It’s not an easy task. Not all players will be available at the same time. You might get one or two this offseason, one or two the next year. James Maloney is 34, not the sort of player you want to base things around.

Do you throw everything at the kid from the Tigers based off a dozen games? Is there a club trying to fit “3 into 2” in their halves that they can pick up? Or can you pull off that big headline splash?

It’s hard to win without that quality half. There are very few around, and you pay top dollar for them. Parra have the large junior district, yet haven’t done anything at halfback since Sterling. Penrith are lucky Cleary fell into their lap. Newcastle haven’t produced one since Johns. Do you take a punt on a young half, hoping he has a high ceiling and your coaching can bring it out in him? Does he turn out to be Keary or Milford, and how long do you wait to find out? (look at the ages of Johns, Thurston and Cronk when they became that player)

Most importantly, the Dogs (like every club) need to find their Peter O’Sullivan or Noel Cleal.

The five players the Bulldogs should target for 2021

Him and Jackson are the only 2 worth keeping.

I honestly don’t rate the rest of the squad. Very few, if any, would start at another club. Maybe Tolman, thats it.

Improved? yes. Up to the class of RL? No

I have watched every game of SR Aotearoa and it is not at the level yet (and on form Will Jordan is the best FB in NZ, Barrett and Mackenzie are well behind him on form)

Can the All Blacks play rugby league?

Hopate is a good fullback, and an ordinary centre. Leave him were he is and look elsewhere in the spine
