using Buzz Rothfield as a source..no one has ever given themselves a bigger mother of all upper cuts than that..wait,is this humour ?

2018 in review: Rugby league

Fusitua is one of the best corner post ball planters in the game..but he just wont roll his sleeves up and cart/heart the ball up.
Ferguson was the best club winger in ’18 by a large space..5000 metres run,500 cart ups,840m on kick returns and a lazy 18 tries to top it off…JAC and Futs dont have anywhere near that workload or team value..

Just as SJ engineered most of Fusituas tries..Cody Walker drove in most of Robert Jennings’ 18 or so down that left..genuine best year ever for the gutsiest little bloke with or without the ball in the NRL.

The 2018 NRL team of the year

Josh has 17 international appearances,8 for Australia..Hess still zero best he could do…‘nailed down a first grade starting spot ‘ ..right now,he’s In Dave Taylor territory..

Coen Hess starstruck by McGuire at Cowboys

You haven’t got an iota of a clue..appallingly ignorant..

Dangerously competent: NRL must de-register Sharks CEO Barry Russell for being too professional

The reality is the Sharks aren’t broke..nor have they been backed into any corner..
In fact now that Flanagan has gone and the NRL have informed the club that they’re satisfied with their financial situation (catch up mate)..the sponsors will come,give it some time to settle,the tough but right decisions have definitely been made by the club.

Barry Russell didn’t do this for Barry Russell..nothing to do whether he had it in for him..it’s stage 1 of the club cleansing itself with 2020 being the start of a new period in the clubs history..support the process, fully hopefully the fans can read a little deeper into what’s happening and get behind him..

But theyre not clear rules..Greenberg gave Flanagan permission to negotiate his contract extension whilst suspended !
Which coach signs anything without talking to his office and discussing the playing squad ?

But theres more to it than just this…Russell had to know what he was doing when he handed over so much for NRL perusal.

Don’t blame the NRL for your club’s bad deeds

I’m going against the grain with Mitchell Moses and would like the coach to have a little more belief and give him another chance..as for young talent Parra have a couple of hot 5/8’s who’ll get their chance this year..really doubt that Liddle and current NZ hooker Smith would be cheaper than Segeyaro,who is,admittedly not at his peak but still sharp and whacking hard..Fergo in,Paulo in,S.Lane in,Manu May back..still a bit thin in the three quarters..

Why the Dragons signing Corey Norman is a mistake

Parra need a fullback..direct swap and Segeyaro with the change,would’ve soothed some itches..

Why the Dragons signing Corey Norman is a mistake

There are 7 locals in that side listed above : Watson Ross Levi Fitz. Barnett Safiti and Sione…

Brown needs to be black and white about Newcastle's finals prospects

Dragons now have the money to buy Corey Norman…consider it a favour..

Well, most importantly the players think he can coach.
Who would want to play under a coach with 3 wooden spoons going into 2018 ?..noone…exceptPonga,Pearce,Guerra,EsseEse’ese,Moga,Heighington,Griffin,Watson and Lillyman..then,this years mob of good quality signings..players are lining up to be coached by him..
Don’t know exactly what you want him to say to the press..he has been quoted saying that they’re ‘aiming high’.
Preferably,I’d just like him to have his team concentrate on every set and up for every game,and the rest will take care of itself..

Look at where England scored their tries in the recently concluded Test series against New Zealand (the highlights will do ). Bennett clearly targets Manu in defence and score plenty,this is where he needs to get lots better..

Who would you rather: Latrell Mitchell or Joseph Manu?

Sure,but the only center who is in the same stratosphere as Mitchell right now is Inglis..so to me it seemed that you were basically asking who is the best center in the game and who is the second best..
If it’s about Rooster retention,as you’ve alluded to later..there’s only one Mitchell..

Who would you rather: Latrell Mitchell or Joseph Manu?

Is the question ‘ who would you take .’ as in next year,in your team ?

Who would you rather: Latrell Mitchell or Joseph Manu?

Mcinnes goes all right but I doubt the Rabbits have regretted their decision to let him go for a second..if he gets injured at rep time I’m expecting a breakout year for Brailey at the Sharks to step into the understudy role..

Cooked Cook, McInnes Masterchef: Why Cook’s Origin jersey should be given to crafty Cameron

Mitchell or Inglis
Manu or Ramien are closer calls me thinks..

Who would you rather: Latrell Mitchell or Joseph Manu?

Personally I’d take Martin Taupau as first pick,played out of his skin every time he went out there (take a look at his highlight reel..frightening) stats probably better than either ,Fifita second some very memorable ‘moments’ and Klem third…based on ’18 form.

Who would you rather: Andrew Fifita or David Klemmer?

You don’t finish equal top of the ladder with the eventual Grand Finalists by having only half a season..come the finals and ‘when it mattered’ they were beaten a point by the Storm in Week 1..embarrassing…took out the Dragons who had just cleaned up the Broncos in Week 2..Seibold,you are killing this team !…. Week 3 were beaten by the Premiers 12-4….in his first year as an NRL coach…put your minus 3’s and your minus 44s away for a moment and look at the forest..

There are no winners in the NRL coach shuffle

Half a good season ? Gee,they were knocked out by the eventual Premiers in the final..he had so many individuals having best ever seasons..Cody Walker,sensational..Sutton,never had a better year..ever..the Burgess boys,catching and holding it…rookie development,Murray,Graham,Jennings and Douhei..and arguably the most damaging forward in the game went from half a game in firsts to first player picked in the Kangaroos..Damian Cook..the coach of the year went a tad better than’half a good season.’..

It’s in the e mail written by Seibold,who was informed by Richardson…and sent on to Solly..

'Benny' did the Broncos board off the break

Disagree on both counts..unscrupulous deception doesn’t equate to outmaneuvering..and secondly had this been Bellamy coming in as they originally wanted,you can guarantee they/he wouldn’t have let it get to this stage..why Seibold was hung out and allowed to burn like that I don’t know..

Broncos sack Bennett, sign Seibold

Reportedly…..he was contacting Souths players and organized a pre season camp for them..you know,whilst all the while ‘honouring’ his Bronco loyalty to his players..

Broncos sack Bennett, sign Seibold

Money won’t buy him respect and dignity..as for the pay out..officially it was breach of contract,wasn’t it ?

Broncos sack Bennett, sign Seibold

I saw a very disappointed,frustrated man struggling to contain his anger at what he innuended was a gross act of surreptitious and under handed BS from Bennett..
White said a number of times he believed they had reached a compromise with all parties regarding a swap,then,unbeknown to him Wayne went rogue,called that press conference and back flipped..but,he’s got history there..
