If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music he hears, however measured or far away' [Henry David Thoreau]. I'm a bit of a sports addict, love competition.

And lost three awesome juniors including an Australian rep. Not a good result in my book.

Signing spree: Dragons land three more recruits for 2022

I thought you’d be pleased

Good call

DAMIEN FLEMING'S First Ashes Test XI: 'In an ideal world he doesn't play', 'the one we've waited years for'

That’s a good a team as any, agreed with the question around Wade.

Had/has to happen. We thought the loss of Smith would have an impact, pity it was their most important game of the year.

No GOAT, no glory: Is the Storm’s purple reign coming to an end?

Has to happen Tony, they’ll drop off the pace and when their #6 goes north in 2023 they’ll drop a little more, but still almost always around the 4-8. We thought the loss of Smith would have an impact at some stage, its a pity it was the most important one.

Don’t support South. Get your facts right.

Cleary confirms it: There are just three kinds of successful NRL coaches

Or you are allowed to rort without repercussions.

Mo would be nice but apparently locked to Titans until 2024

The famous Red V: Why the end of the 2021 season cannot come quickly enough

Don’t forget Rava. Between him and Suli… IF we ever get Suli, just like 2020 ‘it’s all signed yarda yarda…” then he’s not there. Where is the confirmation? Anyway, between those two we have power running out wide. We need three forwards though, seeing as they have ticked Simms off..

The famous Red V: Why the end of the 2021 season cannot come quickly enough

HI Mushi, Thanks for the feedback, well received. 1, valid concern and the idea is in its infancy. The NRL would have appropriate controls here; eg. limit the number of applications over time per club, check club balance books (? the uncooked ones.. lol),
2. IMO it is. We lose so much experience each year and the talent pool will be stretched thin to support the first expansion team and then beyond that.. the cupboard is bare. This is a way to develop the talent pool and is – in conception – more designed to develop talent than to just keep a guy at a club. As noted, the door is also open for 250 game vets as well as club stalwarts. The title change by the editing team created a misconception, it was actually supposed to be called ‘the Retirement Contract’.
3. refer above
4. see #1
Last – see #2
In conclusion, it’s just spitballing an idea atm, I think the concept has legs and seeing how your ideas and responses can develop it.

Cheers and thanks 👍

My plan to let NRL legends finish their careers at home

If Penrith win, my fair play meter will be on the fritz again for the 3rd year out of the past 4.

The Roar’s NRL expert tips and predictions: Grand final

Gocha. Then it’s the same and it sucketh. @ guys working all year get shafted at the death. Don’t like it.

Hmm, I’d have to see it again, don’t remember it that way..

Of mousetraps, the Man and David Manson: St George’s unlikely run to the 1996 grand final

Who lost their spot because SBW got a leg in?? I bet they were impressed… 🥊

I’d want to check some dates before I conceded the Townsend comment. Did he come on board before or after Roger left?? Because when Roger left they threw in the towel and didn’t think they would be there at the end. I didn’t go troppo over that one because of that and because he wasn’t going to save them.

I told you, he hasn’t ticked off the chooks yet. That’s how you get the axe, or not.

Sutton handed the whistle for fifth straight decider

Thanks SPM, we’ll see how far it goes.

TFW?? The Final Whistle?? I spoiled your jest then but I’m tired and dumb and missed it.. 😔 sorry.

Ooohh.. yes, ref manipulation, Cleary shoulder charges and spears guys with impunity, trainers ill.egally stopping play…..

Yep, went troppo then too. One difference is that he wasn’t in transit from another NRL club. Didn’t excuse it, but this sets a worse precedent. Anyone moving clubs from a club out of the 8 can go offering themselves to clubs in the semis to bolster their talent. Some poor Rube who has bene bending his back all year gets tossed for the ring-in. It’s really not a good happening.
OOps.. Souvalis, were you talking to me then? Or Roarhide?

Thanks heaps AMD, that is a super idea and will be taken up has been actioned. If we cross paths afterwards I’ll fill you in.

My plan to let NRL legends finish their careers at home

Yeah, cheers. Unfortunately at the rate the NRL work I could have given it 10 years ago and they’d be waiting for people to forget so someone could claim the idea. 😛
