Yeah and that’s just it TB – consistency… It’s been a buzz word for as long as I can remember, but it just doesn’t exist.

And ah… No intentional reference to the Beatles, but hey, I’ll take it

Eight talking points from NRL Round 6

Jee, harsh on Dufty. He has been excellent this year.

Yeah Papali’i has been excellent – such a loss for the Warriors.

Yeah spot on – and it goes for most of the top teams. Bully them up the middle.

The only way Latrell is playing is if it’s at centre… I reckon Lomax has one of those spots locked away. Be interesting to see what Freddy does with the other… On the limited evidence, Tom T might be the front runner.

That’s a fair comment regarding Melbourne & Penrith, but my thoughts are that Penrith have been excellent. This is probably, in all likelihood, a blip on the radar. For Melbourne, handling errors and not having a great fifth-tackle option on a consistent basis are issues, and it’s not the first time we have seen it this year.

It’s going to be hard to get a read on the Dragons this week against an injury-ravaged Roosters… Titans against Souths should be intriguing though.

I think it definitely could open up more attacking options, but I quite like the 2-point field goal personally. Risk for reward.

Hmm, maybe doing things at 1am isn’t for the best after all 😂

The Roar’s NRL expert tips and predictions: Round 6

I don’t blame Milford for signing the contract Kurt – anyone in his position certainly would have, and I am no exception. You get offered 4 million over 4 years, well, of course you’re not going to say “oh no thankyou good sir.”

I blame a lot of this on Brisbane. They have tried to turn Milford into an organising half when in fact, he was never ever going to play that role, nor should he… It’s a point I made in the article. He is a ball-running half, and it’s why at the start of 2020 I wrote calling for Brisbane to sign Blake Green. In hindsight, his injury makes that a bad idea, but they need someone in his style

The Broncos must make radical changes, starting with Milford

Looking likely, isn’t it?

I mean, at least we didn’t pick up a spoon, but point taken.

Also, potentially.

Yup – they need a Chad Townsend/Blake Green type of figure in the halves though… Milford just isn’t the answer with all the youth & inexperience around him.

You bring Croft off the bench with 10 minutes to go though with the game gone, forwards gassed and team on the back foot. What exactly is that going to achieve?

He needs all the help he can get doesn’t he? 😂

Not that tipping Canberra is likely to help him this week…

Sorry mate 😂

It was so good I just outright refuse to talk about it…

The Roar’s NRL expert tips and predictions: Round 4

I have been burned far too often tipping the Warriors!

Don’t tell me you were one of those fans on Penrith’s Instagram last week Baz…

The Roar’s NRL expert tips and predictions: Round 3

I briefly considered it because they were at home… But their attack is just awful.

So the only reason I’m not on the money is because I tipped against your mob? 😂

The Roar’s NRL expert tips and predictions: Round 3

Hate to break it to you, but Dragons-Sharks is at Kogarah Albo.

The Roar’s NRL expert tips and predictions: Round 1

It depends if he can reign in that side of his game… I’m starting to doubt it more and more. It’s a shame because he is excellent.

Marnus Labuschagne to the rescue as Australia's opening woes worsen

Does that even go ahead? 4 weeks of quarantine for 1 final in potentially the second-biggest COVID hotspot on the planet.

More interesting is, who will Warner’s partner be in… I’m going to say Perth… When we play South Africa in about 6 weeks.

Marnus Labuschagne to the rescue as Australia's opening woes worsen

The Stars are floundering. Hurricanes going brilliantly and, to me, the only team which can break up the Sydney teams at the moment.

Are we headed for an all-Sydney Big Bash final?
