Nah it’s not, we are just convincing ourselves it is.

Screwing over the man: How teams will pervert the new rule changes

Yes I get that, but those minor differences do not justify getting rid of the entire 6 again rule.

Screwing over the man: How teams will pervert the new rule changes

Can you explain to me why people suggest a 7 tackle set from a kick is bad for the defensive team but a 7 tackle set from a 6 again on the first tackle after a 20 metre restart is good for the defensive team?

Screwing over the man: How teams will pervert the new rule changes

L very much like the 7 tackle rule, rewards skill. Just take it away for one point field goal attempts.

Rule one will just see more pointless challengers at the end of games so teams can get rest. That is how it will be manipulated.

Rule three is all wrong and backwards. Change over for a dropped ball and a scrum for finding touch is how it should be.

Rule four should have been brought in last year to stop the cynical offsides that we saw. If you want to stop the late game offside either consider that a professional foul or give captains the chance to call for a shot at goal in the first play after a 6 again call.

Yes, get trainers off the field. If a player goes down and play has to stop then they should go off fro a HIA check. If they can pass that either because they are concussed or are injured in some other way then they are off. If they come back on it is a sub.

“but seriously how much more fatigue do you want to place the players under.”

A lot more. Not just to open the game up but also to reduce impact injuries and concussions moving forward. Don’t worry there will still be huge guys running into each other or set plays, but we might also see other parts of the game flourish as well.

Screwing over the man: How teams will pervert the new rule changes

I still maintain scrums should only be used when a team finds touch. Teams want a rest so give it to them as a reward for skill not for dropping a ball.

To catch a cheat you should hire a cheat, right?

I am guessing the photo directly under this statement is just coincidence, right? 😛 😁

The Broncs forum is a cesspool. It is where intellect goes to die.

But I don’t know anyone one is excited by Kevie’s appointment.

Bleeping devils

Do you think that is why they didn’t eventually tear it up? I think it is that he is the most talent forward we have and they are hoping he will turn it around but your point would be a part of it for sure.

The glory day culture Kev remebers was built off the back of instant success with an all star team immediately upon entering the comp

That isn’t true. The original team had many great and good players, but most of the great players were very much on their last few years. The first premiership years contained few players from the first year.

Magpies suddenly flush with halves 😁 😁 😁 😁

It is too early to make that call on Turpin

Fair point. He might just be a different type of distraction or just have a lot more talent. Either way he is on his last chance.

In Offa? No.

Where do you think your culture came from?

The Brisbane Broncos have too much talent to come dead last in 2021

I still recon they got rid of Offa for culture reasons. Same with McGuire. Just my guess. We need some leadership to fill that gap.

One big issue for us is the CEO issue. There is a chance the new guy doesn’t start till Sept due to court carry’s on buy the Storm so our culture might just be in limbo for the season. That puts more pressure on Kevie to get things right on his own.

The Brisbane Broncos have too much talent to come dead last in 2021

Kevie gets his go to see if he can succeed. I do not a a Broncs supporter have any preconceived views on him as a coach. So will but that is a flawed attitude. See how he goes over the next two years. If the team turns into a 2020 style rabble at the end of this year then we can talk about his job but he should get at least two years to show improvement in the team. He should only be replaced if Bellyache or maybe, maybe Benny become available.

Goal kicker is a good point, Our other option is out for at least half the season. Maybe give the tee to someone name Cam.

Would you seriously take McCullough over Turpin?
Nat can probably correct me but I am sure TPJ has played Prop in both trials.
I don’t agree with you splitting forwards like that. If we actually see locks move to the edges a lot then yes we can call them locks again. Until that happens in actual games I am still going to refer to them as middle forwards. Hopefully the new rules continue the very recent trend of more mobile locks.

Of course it has. It is a good structure, of course not, it is a dogs breakfast but at least it is a start. I would love to see a champions league for FC cricket as well if possible. More context please.

Has the World Test Championship made Test cricket better?

Some standard mistakes and assumptions in here. TPJ is going to play in the middle, he is not going to be an edge forward. The Broncs and most of their fans know Andrew McCullough is past it, has been for a year or two. A hooker that bases their game on defence, especially in the slow power focused era of the 2010’s is not going to last long. He was not skilful enough, fast enough or creative enough to make up for his decline. Riki will be the second rower.
Other personnel points, Isaako will be under a lot of pressure to keep his spot from a couple of young guns. Hass is in a bad place it seems personally with a death in his family so I am not sure he will be mentally ready to fulfill his potential this year. Hopefully we see Cobo on the wing over Arthurs or Mead by the end of the year.
But yes the Broncs do have enough talent and yes the attitude has been terrible for a maybe up to 2 and a half years, definitely 18 months. We won’t make the finals but “IF” Kevie can fix the attitude in defence by the end of Origin time then maybe we make a push for the eight.

He is off contract soon so maybe if he gets a go and plays well we can out bid the Roosters
