Was it last year the fatal accident in Wollongong that caused traffic chaos? The very next week horrible weather and rain so that would explain two Wollongong crowds. Plenty of fairweather Dragons fans it seems

Which club really gets the NRL's best home crowds?

The right decision. Disgusting behavior by two grown men, let alone NRL players. Creeping on high school girls has no defence to it. Good riddance

Bulldogs duo sacked for schoolgirl scandal

Even in your best case scenario you have games being played well into December. Pre season wouldn’t start until mid January pushing the start of the 2021 season back to April and another late season. I’m convinced the best move is to put a line through 2020 and have clubs front up for pre season in November

A revised NRL season and representative schedule for 2020

If you read again, I said early on his career he was decent. But for the last couple of seasons he has gone backwards. Offers nothing in either attack or defence.

Dragons lose another star under Mary

Souths were an embarrassment when they were rightfully booted out. The game survived without them. It was a bad call

The future of Australian sport Part 1: Bigger isn’t better

Souths should not have been allowed back in. Teams have been cut before so don’t see what makes Souths special. For the good of the game Souths should have stayed out, and Cronulla relegated to reserve grade. Dragons will always own Southern Sydney now down to Wollongong. That’s two less teams and move Tigers out to Campbelltown permanently

If you’re referring to Frizell he’s only 28, but agree he should be more explosive and score more tries.

Graham looks like he’s gone one season too many. Saints have some very good front rowers coming through at the moment

Dragons lose another star under Mary

Old boys club. Dean Young, Craig Young, McGregor, Matt Head, Ben Hornby until this season. That’s how you run a park footy side not an NRL side

Dragons lose another star under Mary

Mary didn’t play first grade until he was 23 I believe. He had the talent but not the desire to make a go of it at 20. I believe this conservative nature has become a mainstay of his coaching. Never makes any bold selections, never drops players unless out of necessity. It’s killing the club

Lafai should have been dropped not Aitken. Offers nothing in either attack or defence. I’m with you about Lomax. He was promised the fullback job but moved after one game where conditions didn’t suit expansive play. Mary is getting desperate

NRL Round 2 teams: Peachey dropped to the bench (again), more injury woes for Dragons

My Dragons looked ok in the first half but a Benji masterclass and some questionable decisions cost us. Not sure how Lafai can knock the ball on if he’s lying down, facing his own goal line. Hunt was ok and could have won the game late on if Vaughn caught the ball. However the main issue is the bombed tries. Why Frizell tried to pass instead of steamrolling Corey Thompson is something only he will understand. Typical Mary response about tries from kicks, etc.

Ill-disciplined Eels can’t be considered competition heavyweights

It looks like you have zero knowledge. Anyone flying into NZ needs to be self isolated for 14 days

NRL Round 2 to go ahead behind closed doors

I watched the game and sure it’s only round one but Latrell was barely sighted. Offered nothing in attack and may as well have been sitting in the stands. Needs a big improvement to justify the position. Again I stand my belief he’s not a fullback, at least not at NRL level. He may have played there on juniors but NRL is a lot more demanding

Latrell Mitchell easing into Souths' No.1 jersey

Round 2 will be played behind closed doors. Remaining games in round 1 will still be played as normal, but probably to lower crowds. NZ Warriors basing themselves on the Gold Coast for now. We should move entire competition to QLD, 3 excellent stadiums to play out of. Seems to be else risk of infection up there too

NRL to make coronavirus decision Sunday

Another reason they shouldn’t have be n allowed back in. Who do they even represent? Every other team plays in their own backyard except Rabbitohs. They certainly don’t represent South Sydney

The Rabbitohs' home-ground situation is detrimental to the game

No one is suggesting they broke the law. But they did breach the code of conduct for the NRL. I’m expecting a long lay off for both

Two Bulldogs players stood down over code of conduct breach

“I don’t really care about the boy-meets-girl-for-fun aspect, it happens everyday” your own words

Two Bulldogs players stood down over code of conduct breach

Didn’t realise NRL players had sex with high school girls all the time. You, among others miss the point. When you sign an NRL contract you are held to higher standards. It was an event organised by the club, they were representing the club. This isn’t an everyday type scenario that you are trying to make it out to be.

Two Bulldogs players stood down over code of conduct breach

When NRL players visit schools it’s generally not a good idea to invite girls back to team accommodation from sex. It’s indefensible

Here you go. They knew exactly what they were doing. Creeps https://coupler.foxsports.com.au/api/v1/article/amp/nrl/nrl-premiership/teams/bulldogs/were-you-at-the-school-today-messages-between-axed-dogs-star-and-teen-revealed/news-story/c59f85f9c2d7f10547db3e230e65798a

Two Bulldogs players stood down over code of conduct breach

Inviting two high school girls back fro sex. If the NRL has any integrity at all these two don’t play again in 2020. Disgusting behavior by two grown men.

Latrell Mitchell didn’t walk out on the roosters. His contract was up and he chose to switch to the Rabbitohs, that’s not walking out, which refers to a player quitting mid contract. Aside from that the Titans won’t go down by 24 points, not in the first game of the season and I don’t see how the Tigers can win in Wollongong, a ground they haven’t played at in so long. Home crowd will get Saints home

2020 NRL season: Round 1 preview

If Mary is sacked they will appoint Matt Head for the rest of the year and perhaps extend him pending results. Flanno can’t coach until 2022

Five fearless predictions for the 2020 NRL season

Here’s my 5 predictions for 2020
1. Dragons to surprise everyone and make the 8
2. Rabbitohs to miss the 8 as Latrell struggles at fullback
3. Raiders claim minor premiership
4. NZ Warriors wooden spoon
5. Tigers to shed 9th placed tag to make finals
