Agree with everything you say Mary, except the things about Brownie..
Ramien really scrued things up for him, what do you think he should have done once everything else fails and the player wants out…DWZ spat Ivan punted him…the Jet spat…Seibe punted him…if you’ve got a disconcerted bad apple who’s going awfully
it’s not helping to keep him in the barrel..
‘He keeps making changes to his squad ‘..other than having to move the chairs around to cover Ramiens departure who’s new ?
Keeping it current, Parra won yesterday because their three quarters were more skillful 3 of their 4 tries came from kicks that exploited the Knights well known soft perimeters..SKD and Mann are not at this level and Moga, Hunt and Lino wouldn’t make the Titans..
Dunno how people come up with the fallacy that the Knights have a ‘throw it to Kalyn to get us out of this’ mentality, fullback receipt stats shows Round 21 Turbo 41..Brimson 31.. RTS 29…Ponga 26…Turbos getting 70% more touches, shouldn’t Manly be accused of that ?

Newcastle are struggling, but that doesn't mean their players don't care

Personally, Benny..his team is better and a far bigger chance of going deeper…and he comes across as a nicer human than he was up north..

The SOO slump might be more convincing if he had more than 3 players involved in the final 2 games…Gagai hasn’t had a good club game all year,has he ? And goodness knows how they would have gone post origin without Murray and Cook who haven’t missed a beat and been outstanding..they get beat by 40 in the semis, and I’m changing my vote to Seiboldt…????

Eight talking points from NRL Round 21

Knights have won only 3 of their last 10 games and people quite rightly are labeling it the end of Nathan Brown..but how are the the Rabbitohs not in the same boat ?

They have won 4 of their last 10…they’ve got a crappy fullback, a crocky halfback and the best running hooker in the competition has had his game significantly nullified by referees ignoring defenses laying all over the ruck…

They went better than they did last week when the Sharks flogged them, but they’re history in a slow ruck game..Storm will do the same thing next week to the Raiders..they can’t win either if that’s allowed..Warriors showed that Manly have the same fallibility, so in the fair dinkum stakes…there are really only 2 sides in it..again.

Eight talking points from NRL Round 21

Well if the Broncos are willing to shell out 4 mill for 4 years for Jack Bird..you’ve got a benchmark..

Better, stronger, faster: Kalyn Ponga is the Six Million Dollar Man

Tom Turbo had a tackle efficiency rate of 71 %…RTS 81%..Ponga 84% in this weekends games..2 trysavers in 2 weeks..waddayamean ‘especially in defence’..

Better, stronger, faster: Kalyn Ponga is the Six Million Dollar Man

Ponga looks across the table and sees Milford on a mill., Hunt on a mill.,Mbye in the mill ballpark, Morgan on a mill, Foran on a mill…well,there are purportedly 14 players on a mill in 2020, and is right to wonder how they’ve contributed anywhere near what he’s done for his club to earn that…money shouldn’t be the problem in keeping him.

Better, stronger, faster: Kalyn Ponga is the Six Million Dollar Man

Nah, he’s free to play next week..because what he did is not in the text..but , you keep believing whatever you want to believe..

Was Kalyn Ponga's huge try-saver a shoulder charge?

‘Under the new rules, a player will be charged if the contact is forceful, and the player did not use, or attempt to use, his arms (including his hands) to tackle or otherwise take hold of the opposing player.’
Straight from NRL 2018 rule book..if you cant see Ponga’s arms and hands attempting to grasp Gutho then you just dont want to see..so, you know, the technical criteria hasnt been met at all.

Was Kalyn Ponga's huge try-saver a shoulder charge?

They’ve taken the quick play the ball away from every team…but that was the key area the Warriors were flogged in last week by Hodgson’s Raiders, logically couldn’t see it happening again 7 days later..

The Sea Eagles' road trip from hell; ‘Baby’ Burton spears the Sharks

No, he gets it on the jaw..just dont get what you’re watching.

Why Burgess escaping suspension is a disgraceful mistake

How lame was that trip..goodness me..something horribly out of sinc here..

Debate rages as Sam Burgess successful at NRL judiciary

Well, yeah, I mentioned those other players in the preceding article…sometimes you really totally miss or twist what’s actually been said..you can’t feel an allusion in that comment to EVERY supporter ?

‘even’ is used to reference the staunch Souths ones on this site who have really said some ridiculous things about Moylan..read the other judiciary article..the game blog..so ,yeah, your miles off what I meant..

Debate rages as Sam Burgess successful at NRL judiciary

What sin did the fans commit to deserve this committee ?
Even Souths supporters should feel shame at what this group have done to the game..

Debate rages as Sam Burgess successful at NRL judiciary

First Josh Maguire then Jake Turbo now this…when do we hit tipping point ?

Maloney, Burgess to fight at NRL judiciary

Currently 13th with a real chance given how they’re playing of not winning another game, would Val Holmes still be keen to go a club going backwards?
Kinda similar to Dessie’s ending at the Dogs, players / fans and coach just seem to have fallen out of love with each other.

Paul Green and the Cowboys must part ways

7 wins from their past 8 says a lot..but the Roosters will be all over shutting Hodgson down this week..the amount of time the Warriors gave him continuously last week was begging for a belting..stop him stop Canberra..

Then there were three – and the green vote is rapidly gaining momentum

Maybe, considering this will be the 1st time in 4 years they haven’t made the top 8..Phil could ask the same question of Cleary..he wasn’t in the plan, that’s for sure..

Manly and Canberra debunk the rebuild myth

Apologies Adrian, not Alex.

The Knights must blood their youth

It’s Round 21 Alex..they’re still the bare 2 points out of the 8..hardly the time to be throwing young blokes into the fire.

That said I’d be trying to shuffle Mann and/ or SKD out, enough is enough..

For whatever reason Pearcies gone right off, this is the killer..over at Manly DCE has been sensationally consistent, he’s got them where Mitchell should have the Knights..now is the time the club should expect recompense on the million he cost.

The Knights must blood their youth

Using that logic Luke Burt and Craig Hodges must be the worst coaches in the history of the game.

Manly and Canberra debunk the rebuild myth

In the toughness stakes, Liam Martin is a nose behind Victor Radley..tough lad..

Eight talking points from NRL Round 20

All great seasons, the guy at the Sharks who’s been just as if not more valuable than Nikora is Braden Hamlin-Uele.
When Woodsy went down he became not only an able back up..but the leading collider and line bender in the entire pack..I’d dare say still holding that title..terrific acquisition..

Eight talking points from NRL Round 20

He tried to get up straight away,note Adam Reynolds closest to the crunch of bone on bone is telling him to stay down…he must have wanted Sam in the bin,too, you reckon..

Sam Burgess placed on report after coathanger tackle

The referee blew the whistle as Moylans body hit the ground..why act if the penalty has already been given ?
Sams been rightly charged ,Benny has smoke coming from his ears about constant ill discipline from that family ..but in La La land we blame Moylan..

Sam Burgess placed on report after coathanger tackle

Soft ? maybe..non grubs just don’t do it…it was over the line to the extent that even his own coach was critical..
