McGuire?

Storm co-captain Dolphins-bound in major coup

Thanks Tim, spot on as usual 👍

Kangaroos without borders: Australian internationals who represented other nations

Nat, I had a look at the stats for professional footballers and 21 as a year has around twice the cardiac deaths as the previous years. So 17, 18, 19 and 20 as a year have around 10 or so, doctors have put 21 down to an anomaly.
Old mate has quoted numbers that serve someone’s agenda by taking the statics group set back 50 years and thus making 21 look like they want, they could easily of said in 2021 only 10 more professional footballers died from cardiac related issues than in the previous years.
Also as you well know I only acknowledge statistics from 2018 onwards 👍

No mate I believe the TBA was Lote 👍

Kangaroos without borders: Australian internationals who represented other nations

No doubt there is some ego there, sometimes though confidence and ability is lumped in wrongly with ego. Having said that the Jerome Burton hand shake celebration is probably my favourite of all time, just edging out Piggy Ridell jumping into the crowd, taking a seat and applauding his own try 👍

NRL 2022 Radar: Carefree Panthers perfectly placed to pounce on back-to-back premierships

Yes I suppose John you have won 1 series in the last 4, so you are travelling pretty well at the moment 👍

NRL 2022 Radar: Carefree Panthers perfectly placed to pounce on back-to-back premierships

I happily watched the Dragons play the dogs last year, but that unlimited interchange thing stopped me watching the game for a while 👍

Will the NRL ever give the big men a break?

I also heard one comment that if you combine Delta and Omricon you can spell the word Media Control from the letters, you can also spell Erotic Almond…. 👍

It's time for V'landys to return the whole NRL to the bubble

Thanks Tony, I haven’t looked at it on the google machine but Robin was Scotts dad I’m assuming, he would have been a very hard man. Tough boys running around the bush in those days 👍

Remembering the players who left us in 2021 – Part 1

I would think that it gets put into the too hard basket and is postponed again, unfortunately decisions are based on revenue and I feel that the NRL will direct all of its resources to ensure the men’s comp runs.
Until its an accepted part of life that a workplace can function with people who have the virus, but are still able perform then the WNRL won’t run.
There will be a massive change in the NRL policy this year, otherwise that comp will be disrupted massively, the ability to keep all staff and players Covid free is impossible and concessions will be made.
Mary unless the player status and contact criteria in regards to the virus are changed then I can’t see the comp happening this year and that’s a shame.

Leadership needed ahead of NRLW season commencement

Good write up Paul, First time I’ve had a good look at the Sharks, they look pretty good. I think they end up in the bottom of the eight.
Officially now top 4 in no particular order, Parra, Manly, Roosters and Penrith. Then Storm, Sharks, Souths and Titans….
Happy new year all 👍 and good luck to all teams except you know who.
Just edited it again as I forgot about Souths, had the Dogs at 7 but changed my mind 👍

NRL 2022 Round 1 predicted teams for EVERY club

My point was more the fact that Melbourne choked in that finals game against the Panthers, The Storm with C Smith are a far different team than the 21 side and it will happen a bit more than it used to. I’m not saying that Parra or Arthur are anywhere near the class of Melbourne or Bellamy, just saying that they had a pretty good season and I think they will go allright next year 👍

Storm scored 4 tries in 160min against Parra and lost both games 👍

NRL 2022 Radar: Best and worst case scenario for EVERY team

Come on Souvalis, I’m a Parra let me have some joy. If we only win two games all year and it’s against the Storm then I’m happy.
Merry Xmas mate 👍

NRL 2022 Radar: Best and worst case scenario for EVERY team

I may have made this point before, but the team who physically stuck it to the Storm and beat them twice and pushed the Premiers within an inch have very little chance, yet if you squint you can see Manly holding the trophy…
I agree it is unlikely that Parra will win it, although I have tipped a Parra Manly GF. They will however be a massive bogey side for a couple of teams, I’m not sure anyone would want to play them in an elimination final. Merry Xmas 👍

NRL 2022 Radar: Best and worst case scenario for EVERY team

Just for theory, infringe on tackle one, two and three that’s a 21 tackle set. What are the chances of not infringing in the next 21 tackles, it would literally be back to the unlimited tackle rule.
Imagine the commentary. “15 minutes to go in the Grand Final and Parramatta have had 100% posession they have completed 1 from 1 sets in the first half and are currently in their second set, the Eels are leading the Storm 1-0 thanks to a Moses Field goal right on half time”
PVL hmu if you want to run with this 👍

NRL needs to tread carefully with fans about ongoing rule changes

I agree that in this case it improves the rule. My thought was always 6 again literally, so if you infringe on tackle one its 11 tackles to go, could be a nightmare with Sutton calling 37th and last 👍

NRL needs to tread carefully with fans about ongoing rule changes

Hang on, don’t judge me but and I know its crazy. What if a when a player is lying all over the tackled player outside the team with the balls 40 we blow a penalty as well…. wait I vaguely remember that used to be the rule.
Just blow the pea out of the whistle, penalise the teams until the ruck speed is where you want it and most importantly mute Gould and co when they start their dribble.
Cut and paste.. just ref to the rules
Merry xmas

That’s a pretty good signing, I think Bennett gets the best out of him.
I’m really interested in the lower profile signings and how he builds the working core of the team 👍

Wether you agree or disagree with the punishment Simona received, he has actually served his punishment. Was it sufficient, probably not.
