Sharks be ambitious

All fair but the table says the Dragons are a top 8 side, Cows until last week were a top 8 side and the Panthers are the Panthers..9 times out of ten the Sharks win by falling in.

Best case scenario acknowledging limitations, realistically playing for 5th- 8th..with about 11 others.

Josh Hannay deserves to be a full-time NRL coach

Are you not entertained?

We’ve seen what happened to Penrith when they had 8 out. So, it should’ve been no surprise when main men SJ, Talakai, Graham, Ramien and Mulitalo were brought back and anchors around the clubs necks Townsend and Hiroti sayonared the side would get back onto winning road.Accusing the team of not trying during that period was terribly wrong.
Josh has got them all going well, nice shapes and getting into the grunt.
He’s just getting on with it, no whinges or gripes in his presser. He’s showing right now he is a genuine NRL coach.

His profile lists him at 177 cm.
That’s 5 cm shorter than Brian To’o.. goodness.

Five changes plus shock debutant in Maroons Game 2 team

Where are Jayden and Joe O. ?

Flirting with disaster there Joker, Liam Nelson says it best ‘they will find him…and they will kill him.’

Absolutely Wal..sound and toughened right up.

Eight talking points from NRL Round 15

Those kicks weren’t 50/50 pot luck bombs though.
They were beautifully crafted, positioned into holes and executed..particularly the Peachey for Fifita and Campbell to Mayzhew..Tom was caught out.

Mulitalo is 19, Greenie could be bluffing.

Haven’t seen many G1 sprinters cop a bad check at the 100 yet still pick up the leader on the line the way Xavier got Gagai the other day. Be surprised if Latrell and Luai don’t bring that up with him in on game chat.

Scorer kicks..really ?
Only if the NRL starts playing in someone’s backyard.

Clearly it’s about an uneven distribution of talent. Storm have the two best hookers and two of the best fullbacks in the world..Dogs and Broncos have two of the worst and two of the worst.
Penrith have 8 of their starting 13 playing SOO..only Charlie is thus far not at rep level
yet.
Other top 8 sides Manly are carried by Tom, Roosters by Teddy, Rabbits this year by Cody.
It’s about settling cattle haves and cattle have nots..kicking off won’t prevent hidings.

Are you not entertained?

Walsh is a very entertaining razzle dazzle player, but gee he looked frail at times on the weekend against the Knights. Coach Brown went public with his front on tackling vulnerability during the week to try and save him from this to no avail.
Wasn’t fullback fit enough to sprint for 80 meters, rundown by hooker Brailey, damaged knee, this will make or break him.

Dogs deserved that against them purely on the incompetence of the 2 who instigated it.

Eight talking points from NRL Round 15

‘A couple of years after that he took Souths to a Premiership here, the first in a very long time ‘ forward another couple of years and South’s gratitude was expressed with the kick to the kerb.
Bottom line it’s his watch. 9 times this year they’ve had 30 or more put on them in a game on a coach’s mantra of improved defence..and then there’s the recruiting, abysmal.

Tigers turn on each other in crushing loss

What in any shape or form does what a completely different individual have anything to do with Kaufusi’s filthiness or Matterson ?
I mean Gal played underhandedly so Townsend must have been a dirty crook ?
Nuts comment..

Bring it on: Luai ready for Maroons response to 'that' Kaufusi photo

All power to him, lets not forget he’s giving it to the bottom of the birdcage slummer who among others, elbow slammed Matto and put him out for a month.

Sharks lost 6 in a row after Morris was jettisoned.

Tigers turn on each other in crushing loss

They were lucky it wasn’t at Leichardt on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Attendees would’ve burnt down Latcham’s stand at half time.
Fans are beyond ‘we learnt a lot from that’, coach didn’t have the team ready from the outset, zero fight on either side of the ball.
Wouldn’t want Madge coaching my team.

Could have been more ironic for Robbo, Roosters could’ve got a 6 again call by the ref who then changed his mind and cancelled it but the player didn’t hear it..and, well, Penrith scored off the next play to seal it..

Trent Robinson sees inconsistency and confusion in NRL refereeing

Roosters were never going to win that, even at 2 tries up and playing optimally, with ball Penrith’s roster at 100% v a Rooster skeleton..buckleys.
They will beat sides, on discipline, but not Top 5..especially now Teddy’s not well and got no one of note around him.
If Dally M team of year announced tomorrow:
Best player, half back, captain in the game: Cleary
Best winger in the game : To’o
Best prop: JFH
Best 13: I.Y
And best left center: Burton

Trent Robinson sees inconsistency and confusion in NRL refereeing

By preserving Jason T’s longevity the coach has completely watered down the weapon he once had.
From the best forward in the game dunno if the shackled $10 million man is even the best player in the club anymore. Certainly not playing up to his price tag.

When will the Cowboys' dark days end?

Brisbane's recruitment strategy is all wrong and the proof is on the field

That crusher last night was unforgivable, that said wouldn’t knock him back if he was interested in the Sharks.

Brisbane's recruitment strategy is all wrong and the proof is on the field

My simple understanding is one of the reasons the Broncos wanted a new direction sans Wayne was they were sick of getting knocked out of the semis early.
That hasn’t changed at his new club.

From that headline you could sub in (Broncos) ‘and Dragons’ to make it fairer.
