I’ll always either pronounce his name or write it out properly when talking or writing. The only time I use Tino is in a blog when it’s rushed.

Six talking points from State of Origin 2

Agree. He was excellent in Game 1…

Spot on.

I mean…

“Cameron Munster played a huge role in Game 1 and was set to again until he was tackled in the air, causing his head to thud into the ground with such force that he was simply never going to pass an HIA test.”

I thought that explained what caused it pretty decently, but anyway.

Tupou acts like an extra forward early in sets… He was unreal. Almost 160 metres in the first half.

I’ve read a little bit of doubt… So it was worth addressing. My goodness he was just outstanding last night.

8:16pm for me.

Alright. I’ll play.

39 minutes and 57 seconds.

It’s a bit of the old Queensland selection strategy. Might be average in club, but if they don’t let you down in Origin, keep picking ’em.

And Frizz has never let anyone doubt at this level.

I’m gonna miss getting to 5pm on a Wednesday and going “Bloody Mithen, where are his tips?”

The Roar’s NRL expert tips and predictions: Grand final

If Finucane is there, the Storm clearly have the edge. I just doubt he’ll play if he hasn’t been named.

Raiders and Storm to be decided by epic battle of the forwards

BA Sports! It’s been a while. Welcome back.

Agree regarding that. The travel is something teams have had to do all year… And the fact he said the Raiders have faced more challenges than any club this year is laughable. The Storm and Warriors have literally not been at home.

It’s interesting you mention Munster and Wighton… If it is as physical as I anticipate it’ll be, then you’re right. The running games of Wighton and Munster, particularly at the back-end of each half, could be what cracks this game wide open.

Raiders and Storm to be decided by epic battle of the forwards

Yeah Albo, I have gone Melbourne – I think being in Brisbane gives them the edge. But I’m not saying that with a great deal of confidence.

Tino and B Smith have huge roles to play for mine this evening. Need to sort of keep the Storm ticking through that middle of the game when momentum can often be one-way traffic for long periods.

Raiders and Storm to be decided by epic battle of the forwards

I’ve tipped Melbourne but on the fence. Genuinely.

I think the out of sight thing has something to do with it, but also, he gets dwarfed in coverage by Bateman… And I don’t think that is fair. Whitehead is a consistent performer for the Raiders.

And yeah, I think the only thing stopping Welch from starting will be Fotuaika. But even then, Welch has the inside running. He has been a mountain for Melbourne… That Round 9 performance – less than 100 metres and 7 missed tackles. It was average. But he has just been unreal since then.

Oops.

The Roar’s NRL expert tips and predictions: Preliminary finals

The Roosters defence has normally been so good. I wouldn’t be too worried about it coming good.

I’ve written about Gutho a few times this year. He is just phenomenal.

Help! What do I write about for my Friday column? I don’t want to sit through that game haha.

Don’t mind the call for coach of the year to Holbrook actually…

Eight talking points from NRL Round 19

The Panthers bandwagon will be as big as the Canberra one was last year. They are the feel good story, particularly with all the local juniors they have at the club. I reckon if they can get over that lack of finals experience, they are the best team.

Because otherwise we get rubbish like Thursday night’s try… Where, you know, Paulo didn’t close to scoring.
