a lot of his tries have been from hit ups when he’s retrieved the ball and high kicks to his wing

Bird and Bryce under pressure to perform in NRL 2019

the further you move into the scrum, the less you are required to offload. you mention ian Roberts, most of his time was in the front row. fifita thinks he’s a 5/8, but the number on his back says he’s a front row. he can offload, but he can also put a lot down. gallen still put a few guys through gaps, the talent is still there

and he’s fighting hoppa, not the tahs golden child hooper the 5 million dollar man

Predictable push and shove at Gal and Hoppa's weigh in

gallen is going to get smashed and if he’s lucky, he might get an anal rub up also 😉

I wanted to add that I just noticed that our new friend Todd Greenberg is on the board as is CEO of NZRL Greg Peters. hmmmmmm no conflicts of interest there of course

Two codes a world apart

its not the NRL’s job to promote league internationally. there is another organization called the Rugby League International Federation www.rlif.com Haven’t heard of them? they must be doing a great job. Our old pal Peter (its the sharks Peter) Beattie is the Deputy Chair and I think another old friend John Grant was the old Chairman

nah, go to the gold coast and watch the Titans. actually, make titans your team to follow this year. I have a feeling (might have to put an antiseptic cream on it) that they will do truly wondrous things this year. lets go, titans. with big mal and gordy lending their support, what can possibly go wrong 😉

Coming to terms with the retirement of 'JT'

sure. a good player doesn’t always turn out to be a good coach. he still has support from RA so maybe he’s better and we just haven’t seen the results yet. Eddie was a dog coach IMO as a wallaby coach but he’s did wonders with Japan and doing good things with England.

Stephen Larkham sacked as Wallabies assistant coach

“Their is an underlying layer of abuse and racism in Australia that unfortunately will take a very long time and a lot of painful talk to finally bring it out. ”
how did we get onto racism?

NRL left with no choice but to impose tough stance on player misbehaviour

with hooper?

Foley wants Super Rugby rest plan details

hooray. finally I see someone who sees the same things I did. foley is given carte blanche by the national coach to hide on the wing in defence. quade misses some head on tackles or goes too high defending at #10 and gets hung drawn and quartered for it. not blaming foley for this, just pointing out that people should compare oranges with oranges. a #10 is supposed to set his backline on fire or drive the forwards when required. foley is a good tradesman who tries hard.

my God, who is Raelenes stylist???? I think she should dump the herman munster look and go with Uncle Fester 😉

Stephen Larkham sacked as Wallabies assistant coach

stop being so complex rabbitz, cheika stamped his feet and Bernie had to leave. RA couldn’t afford to pay out his contract so he had a stay somewhere so they moved him to the mail room and gave it a nice title. problem solved, not so complex 😉

Stephen Larkham sacked as Wallabies assistant coach

with chieka being sole selector etc, do you really think he would have let larkham totally loose as attack coach? our defence and forward play was pathetic, I wouldn’t have minded if grey had been cut loose. our attack was stupid, too many tricky stupid switches etc behind the gain line, very easy to slide defend. I’m not ready to pile all that on larkham.

best of luck to Hamish. but this reds flyhalf situation strikes me as very much groundhog dayish. remember young Jake McIntyre? back to the future. he had to go to French rugby to get some coaching and development.

Super Rugby 2019 preview series: Queensland Reds

foley? punter? which foley are we talking about? I’d give foley the punt real quick and put someone in there who can kick more than 30 metres. dane haylett petty for instance

An NFL team made up of Super Rugby's best

“Just because Thorn has so far been unable to improve any facets of their game, what’s to say Thorn isn’t going to be able to improve facets of their game?”. love it. gold medal stuff. i’ll be very interested to see how thorn’s team does this year. this is “his team” this season after letting frisby, cooper slipper, and hunt go last year.

Yes minister. Sir Humphrey strikes again

Cheika survives Rugby Australia review - for now

“who incidentally are now my second favourite team as they have Queensland legends Quade Cooper, Will Genia and super boot Reece Hodge. I just wanted to out that out there.”…. haven’t finished reading your article but couldn’t wait to offer myself as conductor of the train taking ex-reds fans to rebel HQ Melbourne. I just wanted to GET that out there LOL

It's time to centralise Australian rugby

and what about broncos talk earlier this year of trying to sign coach X or Y or Z for 2020 season? you don’t think this got bennett thinking about his future? this was broncos talk, not Bennett. remember they came out and said they had bennetts permission to talk with bellyache. and this bellyache talk was for 2019 season, not 2020

'Benny' did the Broncos board off the break

you are kidding me, yes? you have never heard of the term “re-inventing the wheel”? happens all the time, new guy comes in and kills all the offspring of the previous alpha male and sets about establishing his dynasty. happens when the new guy coming in doesn’t have any self belief of his own strength and weaknesses and fears for his position and only has his cronies there to shore up his position. yes, I’m being satirical relating it to sports admin but that’s the history. new guy comes in and sets up his board and then tears down what they didn’t like and then establishes their “new ideas”. people get sick of the old board, turfs them out, new board comes in, throws out the old ideas blah blah blah until eventually, we come back to the new “old ideas that worked years ago”. much money wasted and good people thrown out because they didn’t like the trendy “new ideas” of the guy trying to throw out the old board.

The Wrap: What can Australian rugby learn from Grant Fox?

I could hear a bit of HG and Roy there, that’s got to be a compliment

Crackling and Spanks: Wallabies on the upswing, cricketers walking tall

I liked Markham as a player also and I can’t imagine that as an attack coach he can be as useless as the Wallabies are in attack. If he is being chiekmated *pun* , surely he can’t just be sitting back and saying nothing. But, as others have said here, the Brumbies weren’t that good under his coaching.

Take the win, acknowledge the issues, gear up for England

Don’t call me “frankly”
