I do like watching Doggett and Sweppo. Sweppo is I think our best spinner and should be playing Tests.
Finch is a good watch in form and I do love watching Maxwell and Silk field.
Paine is very correct bat with some style.

Imagine him in todays game

I am sure Maxwell would get a few mentions

This probably says as much about the roar crowd as the state of the game but there are very few modern cricketers listed here in the comments.

Don’t be bagging Swampy!!!!

He set up the innings as was the go back then. Plus as you say, the standard of wickets and opposition bowlers was much higher than now. Swampy was actually quick between the wickets, Deano didn’t run those singles on his own and it was regularly Swampy at the other end running with Deano.

Martin Love
Stuey Law
Matthew Elliott
Modern day players Babar Azam is great to watch. Fantastic technique and style about his batting.

To me it is anyone but Easts but still 😁

I never saw you as a Blackhawks guy. Don’t know why, it makes perfect sense. How did your Mum survive West End back then as a Valley’s supporter, she must have been one nice lady.

'You'll enjoy watching this kid play': Players to keep an eye on in the QRL finals

I keep waiting for a commentator to yell out “Yes Mam!” when Ezra scores but so far they have restrained themselves. We shall see if that keeps up is Souths make it onto the NRL GF day.

Have you noticed how fans treat the current independent officials.

I still think anyone who stays down has to go off for the rest of the game or at worst a HIA and those subs count unless the ref blew a penalty for foul play. No bunker involvement.

V’landys, Abdo, Annesley, McGuirk and the trainers: Failure and zero accountability

Since there are no “nice” beaches there, I would say no 😛

None of this nonsense will ever be solved until the ICC takes over full control of the schedule and the control of Aus, Eng and India of the ICC is removed and all Test nations and affiliates get equal say in the future of the schedule and game.

independent medicos will not be better in my opinion, they will still stop the game and probably more often as they will be overly cautious.

Nat, we probably shouldn’t be promoting Mam to the Sydney types by the way, them will all swoop and offer him buckets of brown paper bags.

To bad, has loads of attacking talent.

Did the Kangaroo catcher ever make much progress in the Storm system?

Souths tried to play one out stuff in the first half last week and were run over and well beaten, it looked like we were the ones struggling with the heat. We started to use the ball more in the second half and it showed and we really dominated from then and the Blackhawks couldn’t go with us.
The Bears worry me more than the Blackhawks. We are going to have to be good in both halves, but never write Souths off, we have made many comebacks this year, winning games with full length tries after the siren at times.
Look out for Logan Bayliss-Brow, big prop who has signed with the Broncs for the next couple of years. Townsville couldn’t bring him to the ground last week, he carry three or four at times and the Blackhawks are not a small team.

All that time of Roar fans swearing black and oranje they have nothing to do with the dutch heritage or Hollanida and here we get solid proof all that was rubbish those fans told themselves.

Like the new shirts, got a classic look there.

I am thinking Xavier Savage might be a smokey for a future Broncs spot

Selwyn Cobbo will hopefully take that step next year and be our gun centre or at least one of a great pairing.
