Hunt is the 3rd best 9 in Qld and the 2nd best 7. As a result he will always be 14

Sydney is way too lucky when it comes to public funding for football stadiums

seriously?

Where is the CBA for these upgrades?

The author must not live in Sydney. If he did he’ll know that the developers run NSW.

He is 27, he is experienced, he is, as you say, a level below rep standard. He doesn’t have major injury concerns and has another 100 games ahead of him

Based on supply and demand for these type of players he will get paid

It’s illogical for Lodge to attract high-priced contract offers based on actual performance

I still think Moses will win Dally M

NRL NEWS: Bird ends contract delay, Cowboys duo out, Smith 'embarrassed' by Storm, Herbie signs, Hynes surges

They can say what they would like, but the NRL do the draw, with the main goal giving every team a minimum number of prime time games. The Qld derby was obviously a game the NRL wanted on prime time. The Titans are again on next Thursday, and that will be their 3rd and final prime time game this year

NRL sets the fixtures, not the broadcasters. That stopped about 4 years ago

NRL NEWS: Lodge quits the Warriors, Best's gruesome elbow injury, Ray Warren may not return for 100th Origin

He thought he was returning to New York, not New Zealand

NRL NEWS: Lodge quits the Warriors, Best's gruesome elbow injury, Ray Warren may not return for 100th Origin

Feel free to point out where I “worship” Ray Warren, or even said anything positive about him. My opinion of him has not changed from the time he coached me to today. I won’t hold my breath waiting for it though. My post was a comment on Thompson, not Warren

I know tickets on the anti-Gould bandwagon are cheap and widely available, and snapped up readily by those who get told what to think, but don’t expect me to apologies for stating facts and opinions different to yours. I have seen how Gould works, I know the opinion his peers have of him, I know he is the sounding board for many in the game.

They had a positive rule – the 20min red card – and now they want to get rid of it

Reduce the value of penalties, and four more law changes that would be game-changing for rugby

'You had to be a smartarse': Dear Paul Vaughan, just like NRL players not all journos are 'the worst people'

Knights looked good, got over the line a few times. But that, coupled with Reynolds out, made them complacent and they paid the price

Does another home loss mean the end of the season for Newcastle?

Vaughan is an idiot, but journalists are overly precious

NRL Power Rankings: New face at top and, no, Bulldogs still aren't bottom of the barrel

The Warriors have twice as many wins and have nearly scored twice as many points as the Dogs, yet the Dogs are somehow ahead. And that is after the Dogs were beaten by double digits by the 14th ranked team, and the Warriors were beaten 2 points by the 8th ranked team

There is no credible analysis that has any team other then the Bulldogs ranked 16th
