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.

'You had to be a smartarse': Dear Paul Vaughan, just like NRL players not all journos are 'the worst people'

It (the article) will turn up when Vaughan next googles his name.

Correction top above, Molo at 18 is because they retired the #8 for tonight.

Probs because it’s the Titans mate, with no Fifita.

Reynolds is out. Those tipping Newcastle looking a lot better now!

Most of the homies.
I’m looking at the Knights at home as the likely upset of the round, there’s always at least one.
Knights
Tigers
Eels
Dragoons
Cows.. (wow, tipping over Storm)
Panthers
Rabbits (bit of a coin toss and might change Saturday night)
Sharks.

The Roar’s NRL expert tips and predictions: Round 11

Crunch time for the Roosters, they face the draw from Hades over the next 6 weeks and could easily be on only 14 points come their bye in round 17. Bronco v Chooks R21 could be deciding a top 8 spot between them.

NRL hopefuls have three weeks to impress, finals spots are locked after Round 13

me too.

DeBelin hasn’t been the same since.. well, you know.

I have a suspicion that he may have been neut.ered. He’s playing a bit that way…

Are either a better quality newbie than Gosieski or a local we should be encouraging. Problem is that me saying “we better not lose” is into empty air adn neither Hook nor apparently the club board/management are really phased by losing. Whatever one thinks of Barrett or the way that ended one obvious fact is the club wasn’t going to (note this Newcastle [3 spoons], Tigers mess, Dragoon {sad death of a superclub}, Titans [perennial optimism] ) accept continued mediocrity. Good on them. Laundy wants to be another Uncle Nic, this is a fair start. They weren’t going to win in 2022 but they should be running 11/12 and putting a scare up some teams.

Cheers mate, I’m not hopeful and wondering how he got picked ahead of some of the others..

Matth, great series, always an enjoyable read and a bit of surprise on how many guys slipped under the radar that I just don’t remember. I did recognise names in the second row but not much else.

The best Newcastle players who never played representative football

But he doesn’t need to carry them, just lead and enjoy. I hope he goes there, spreads the talent and attitude.

The Dolphins must sign Munster

Nadan with the Tigers?? how did that happen??

Round 11 team lists Late Mail: Flu rips through Raiders, Hughes injury causes Storm reshuffle

Lets go through it.
G.1) Knights getting some good people back.. could be close one. And I thought TM Martin was knobbled??
G.2) Wests short on numbers and WTHeck is Dufty still doing at #1 for the Dogs?? Spoonbowl and classic 6pm Friday. Getting a rep for being the stinker game of the round.
G.3) Eels look weak in the backs, need Sivo asap. Tom will miss Origin if he keeps playing with this obviously-not-near-90% leg and where is Saab?/ A month for a toe issue?? I had a goose run over my toes at training and broke one in high school, still played that weekend.. Was the little toe, but still an ouchie.
G.4) Ramsey?? WTDickins?? He’s just NOT a fullback, we’ve already seen that and answered that question a few times. He’d be # 5 for fullbacks, even 6 if I was in the squad. Can the Manly boys tell me anything about Gosiewski?? How is he in the squad?? Warriors, like Titans and a stack of teams before them looking forward to the Dragooons running them back into form.
G.5) Cows have consistency and confidence. Looks a strong team to take on the best at home and Storm still missing Paps. What chance a move at fb before they run on?
G.6) Roosters missing a few before their month from hell. They’re on 12 points now and best hope is 14 in a month before a freebie from the bye. Penrith no changes to their giant killing R10.
G.7) Who the heck is Trent Peoples?? And Nikorima gets a run in the Cardinal and Myrtle. Wighton is back so ’twill be a good game.
G.8) Is this Marsters first game of the year?? Beware the Sharkes yo-yo rebound, even without a couple of faces.

Halfback. He has most of it bar the long kick. ANd defence isn’t a huge problem there, most of the worst defenders in the NRL are halves.

Who's in the running to replace Barrett – and what do they need to fix first?

Old Boys don’t do well coaching the Dragons
