Brisbane manly would be a better name. that way, people who hate brisbane would get onboard and because of the manly name, people who hate manly would get onboard also. its a win/win bus and if we had ivan driving the bus, things would be groovy

Manly must invade enemy Bears territory to survive

Isn’t Todd captain/coach up around Byron Bay area?

Todd Carney talks to The Roar: On-field talent, off-field indiscretions and one infamous bubbler

.i’m a league guy who likes rugby also. i haven’t seen koroibete play for a while. last time i saw him, he was a hard runner who didn’t know what to do when he went into contact and more times then not, he threw a wild pass or would turn the ball over in the tackle/ruck. i was quite impressed with his game against argies and i think he might be finally starting to get his head around the game

Wallabies DIY Player Ratings versus Argentina: The results

still is a grub

What did fans really expect from Robbie Farah?

I was watching Shane Lowry trying to hang on to win the Open and a mate sent me a message about the wallabies game being on tv. A couple of years ago, I would have channel surfed between TV ads. This year, I stayed watching the golf. When the clown leaves, I will come back.

The Wrap: Are the Wallabies cursed? Too right they are

the old saying “its better to keep your mouth shut and have people think you are dumb than to open your mouth and prove it”. oh look, its a talking clown!!!!!

The Wrap: Are the Wallabies cursed? Too right they are

Very true. for example, I was sitting next to an oldish long haired hippy type on a flight from singapore to sydney. we get talking and he tells me that he was a retired university professor ( i gave him a good googling when i got home and he was telling the truth). he told me how he led the world (true again) in xxxxx research in his prime but now he was living the hippy life. great!!!! he then tells me how he was just coming back from some hippy festival and recommended to me that if i wanted get a great buzz, I should try injecting pure heroin, not the dangerous commercial stuff on the streets. great!!!!! thanks for sharing. i’ll just stick to beer. just because you’ve got a uni degree doesn’t mean you are smart (true again)

I’m really glad you mentioned the master coach Warren Ryan here. Since he got dragged into the ABC’c political correctness insanity and did the honourable thing and DIDN’T capitulate, he’s been the forgotten man.

Why Craig Bellamy should seriously consider coaching the Dragons

I just read the article again and yes, Ben hunts name is still there so it’s serious. I thought they might have included Jack de belin also but alas, I didn’t see his name there. Seriously? Don’t think Ben hunt should be there.

Blues dominate Origin merit team

he hasn’t been doing much singing lately. he had a good game in the pacific tests

Why the Broncos should consider moving on from their million-dollar man

Good on you Nick for proving to the world that they are correct about your career. I knew you could do it and although its taken a few years to do it, you’ve proven it again today.
The tennis greats have a coach, but you don’t cos you want to do it your way. Good on you man.
The tennis greats concentrate about winning when they are on the court, but you don’t because you want to do it your way. Good on you man.
Champions are applauded and adored because they play to the best of their ability, but you don’t want that because you want to do it your way. Good on you man.
OK, enough, can you see where I’m trying to go with this? You’re a tosser Nick and a disgrace. I feel ashamed to be Australian when I watch you on the court and last night was no different.
You proved a lot last night:
1. You need a coach that you respect but you don’t want a “yes Nick” type of coach who will say the nice things to you just to stay on the payroll.
2. You need a reality check. So many greats have tried to steer you down the right path and Rafa even tried again after the match.
3. You need to learn about self discipline. Try meditation. Block out all the bad stuff and concentrate on the finish line and stay on that path during your matches. Everyone gets bad calls etc during a match. You have a reputation now and some of the public, officials and other players will try to upset you. But stay on the path if you want to get to the finish line in front.
4. Forget about trying to be the entertainer and concentrate on using that your talent to improve.
Who knows, one day I and the rest of the Australian sporting public might actually be proud of you and you might become the tennis great that we know you can become. One day you might be remembered for your spectacular tennis talent instead of your spectacularly bad sportsmanship and behaviour on the court. One day we, the Australian sporting public mightn’t cringe when we hear your name mentioned. Leave that role to Bernard Tomic.

Nadal holds off Kyrgios in Wimbledon classic

i thought we lived in a democracy and had a right to be heard and could take things all the way until the end. the government stopped him before the finish line

Why I donated to Israel Folau - and why I will again

Gaynor won in the federal court, lost in the full federal court appeal and then the high Court wouldn’t give him special leave to appeal. Hardly a straight out loss

There always has to be one, did you NOT read Ben’s article? You’re supposed to be talking DOWN the bloosers, not talking them up. I smell blood, maybe yours 😉

You're welcome, NSW

Adam Reynolds is 28 and he and Cody walker were setting the nrl on fire until his untimely injury. They would have made a good pairing, very dependable

Surely Nathan Cleary is in the last-chance saloon

the best thing about toowoomba is the new by-pass around it.
my uncle was a big flashy winger/fullback who played for Millmerrin in the toowoomba competition back in the late 60’s. but , you see, he was from millmerrin, not toowoomba. can you see the relevance? not everyone who played for “toowoomba” was from toowoomba. Dale Shearers father, Bob, was one of my teachers at warwick high school around 1970/71. Dale would have been about 6. He PROBABLY played junior football for one of the local clubs, most likely collegians. but can warwick claim him as a local? no, of course not. But his father was a great coach of our school team.

What does the average NRL fan think of Toowoomba rugby league?

“Queensland by four”
Four tries? Four changes from the bloosers for the next game? It will be a cracker of a game FOUR sure 😉

State of Origin 2 preview: Queensland Maroons vs NSW Blues

Nick off Toowoomba. You can’t claim Wayne Bennett (warwick/Allora) and Rohan Hancock (Killarney). They might have played in the Toowoomba competition but thats all you are getting.

What does the average NRL fan think of Toowoomba rugby league?

There must be something wrong with my monitor. All i get on the screen when i open this article is “maroons win 2019 SOO series in perth”. and man of the match is from the losing side, the man who (blind) freddie selected at both centre positions, mark gasnier.

The Blues will have to defy history to defeat the Maroons in 2019

Thought malony played himself into the team yesterday

BREAKING: Mitchell Pearce ruled out of Origin 2

Oh dear, how sad ????

Waratahs pinged off the park by referee Egon Seconds

Seriously, how come no one picked up on the Greg Hartley moment in the titans v Penrith game? 6 mins 19 seconds to go in the game, titans spill the ball. Penrith then have 7 tackles from the turn over. Malony tackle was tackle 5, fox shows the green box with 5 in it showing 5th tackle. ball then goes to cleary who runs it and gets tackled. That folks is tackle 6 and turn over. But fox keeps the green tackle box at 5. But Greg Hartley (2 of them) doesn’t make a call, fox keeps the 5th tackle box for the Cleary tackle and play then goes for another tackle which is Greg Hartley tackle 6, except it’s really tackle 7. Luckily Penrith didn’t score from the 7th tackle and the titans won. Bring back finger counting for the ref and specsavers for fox

Eight talking points from NRL Round 5

issy is busy trying to save souls, in accordance with the book of guidelines that he has chosen to follow for his lifes journey. the general rugby public and RA has been busy trying to get issy is follow the path to success in rugby. if the public don’t want to believe that issys ways to redemption suits them, we, the public, voice our disapproval, as has been happening and we disassociate ourselves from issys ramblings. issy has been given a book of guidelines by RA to follow if he still wants to be associated with Rugby. issy has chosen not to follow them and now should do the honourable thing and disassociate himself from rugby and resign as an employee of RA. of course, as a member of the public, he is still entitled to voice his opinions, but not as an employee of RA as is now the case.

It's time for Israel to go

in social media, everyone is entitled to their opinion, and if everyone stuck to just that, their opinion, everything would be sweet. but boys sometimes let testosterone overtake their thinking and start getting personal. and this is when i love social media because you get to see real live idiots up close and personal without having to go outside your house. i was a broncos fan who saw their first game in the sydney competition, but i gave them the flick a few years ago when they sacked players for minor mis-deeds, but kept a certain little ex-halfback around despite numerous drinking and gambling problems, just the sort of influence you wouldn’t want on younger players. i wandered down the road to titansland and have been a fan/supporter through thick and thin ever since and never had the urge to wander back up the M1 to the broncos corral. i note that a few broncos staff/players have recently joined me down at the titans. we’re the real deal and building a great club

A fan's dilemma: What's wrong with being a couch coach?

think back to mid 1960’s when British bikes ruled the world. sure, they leaked oil and weren’t the most reliable, but suckers (public) still were buying them. Honda came along and made some reasonable bikes that didn’t leak oil etc. a smart company would have realised that there was a challenge coming and do something to revamp their bikes. OH NO, not the british. fast forward to now, honda, yamaha, kawasaki etc rule the motorbike world and the british bikes are japanese clones made in india, malaysia, thailand etc. lesson to be learnt from history? don’t rely on the british to change for anyone, they know best. suckers are still watching their dross
