Both calls were correct. Yes marginal but correct. The same rules apply to everyone.

The Roosters bring back an all-time favourite post-try celebration

Hey Paul. That’s for your concession. I’d be happy to take your 12-18 months. You can’t keep a good club down.

The Broncos' road to redemption starts this weekend

It’s better than Storm, Panthers, Rabbitohs, Eels, Roosters a s Storm. The new executive positions bring a change in culture, standards and accountability.

Dragons are done. They don’t have the troops and Vaughn was one of their best on field. It is time for them to start looking to the end of season BBQ.

Is the Dragons' season over?

A straight answer would have put the matter to bed.

Things get tense as Paul Kent grills NSW assistant coach

What was wrong with the line of questioning. I thought it was relevant and worth a straight answer. Brandy got defensive because he felt invaded on account of Moses only getting the gig because Joey coaches him and Fitler had a relationship during World Cup with the Lebanon team.

Joey coaches Moses

Without Cleary and Luai, are the NSW Blues really that good at all?

Yes I think your correct. Ben Hunt played a fantastic game. His attack was sensational with two tries to his name however his defence was also excellent. Huge tackle count and some game changing hits.

STATE OF ORIGIN: Who won the Wally Lewis Medal and the player of the match?

NSW has again picked a strong team however I have my doubt over the halves combination. Cleary and Luai were sensation in game one with their Panthers combination really standing out. It is yet to be seen how Moses will perform at the SOO level.

2021 State of Origin: Game 3 preview

The three games in Queensland have been through circumstances that are out of the normal authorities control. Hopefully the pandemic eases up and things can return to normal however in the mean time we all need to support the decisions and our team.

Repay NSW in 2022 with three home games in Queensland

Good call. I know the NRL is persisting with them in order to keep the competition alive in 2021 but a points strip would be fitting for the Covid breach. That would be an enormous deterrent and potentially stop any further foolish behaviour from players.

Why are the NRL bending over backwards to accommodate the Dragons?

Good call. As mentioned It is a Rugby League forum and Johnson gave a good account of himself. The left field nonsense is best addressed in its respective forum.

Shaun Johnson finds out live on air about the NRL's QLD move, reacts accordingly

Correct. He was asked to respond to the breaking news and developments of the NRL during Covid duress. To lump all these other issues on him is absurd. As a Rugby League forum it would be best to stick to the topic.

You make a good point. Let’s watch how the Olympic Games are handled and hopefully there are some lesson to emulate so international sport can still be brought to homes for our entertainment.

Great signing. Duffy has been under appreciated at the Dragons. He is a quality player and could really flourish in the next few seasons. He is only 25 years of age. As an established first grader he will get the job done in any team.

Bulldogs to land Matt Dufty on one-year deal

I got a giggle out of that. Funny. Has Vaughnie still got mates. I’m not sure too many would turn up for a BBQ any time soon. Not as stupid as Jai Aarow in my humble opinion.

Bulldogs to land Matt Dufty on one-year deal

Game awareness by young Walker. I applaud the play. He took the risk out of the last play option. It’s legal and he used his smarts to wind the clock down and secure the victory. First time I’ve seen that play but maybe not the last.

Roosters coach claims Sam Walker chaotically running out the clock was clever

Wow I was taken back by the NRL announcement however I can see why the have acted. The Covid 19 situation has escalated and the NRL have acted accordingly. We are fortunate to have sport and in particular Rugby League to watch and enjoy and I am grateful for the sacrifices of the athletes and their respective clubs. Hopefully thing improve in NSW and normality can be restored ASAP.

NRL officially Queensland-bound for the next month

Stellar attitude shown by Shaun Johnson. The Covid situation has escalated and the NRL have acted accordingly. We are fortunate to have sport and in particular Rugby League to watch and enjoy and I am grateful for the sacrifices of the athletes and their respective clubs.

Yes your correct. Some of the pressure is about who is fit in terms of players and the team in general. If the Bunnies can field a fit and healthy team I agree with your predictions. It’s going to be great.

Cowboys concede eight straight tries as Walker produces another dominant display

Tim, I like your work. I enjoy reading your articles. I feel you are out of touch on this issue. A change of Origin venue, the relocation of many Sydney teams to Queensland as well as the Warriors camped in OZ for the second season tells me this matter of Covid is a real concern.

In the land of 'it's coming home', Australia's disdain for RLWC causes deep wounds

The Rabbitohs are in great shape. Missing six Origin stars they blew the Cows off the park. Cody Walker was a master class and Johnson is now lead try scorer in the NRL. Bennett is building his side nicely and with a good draw for the coming month is assured a top four berth.

Cowboys concede eight straight tries as Walker produces another dominant display

The NRL is damned near cancelled as it stands. Constant bio-security breaches. Yes it is too much of a risk.

David ‘Cement’ Gillespie is another uncompromising forward I would add to the team or at least the bench. I still think Queensland could win.

A Blues side to take on the great Maroons of the 1980s
