Been called a lot worse! 😛

As James Tedesco hits Game 200, is he the NRL's most unloved superstar?

Funny, I thought he debuted after 1999.

I can imagine him in a Tigers jersey…

Exactly. Hookey left after 1999.

The ones who got away: South Sydney Rabbitohs

Second rate? Didn’t they win last week?

Another one bites the dust! Billy Pollard set for Wallabies debut after hooker concussed

Hockey left after 1999. If you can bend the rules for him, bring in Craig Wing too!

It’s partly an issue of team importance. Turbo gets injured, Manly lose. Teddy gets injured, Roosters still win with the likes of Manu slotting in.

Remember when Lazy Davy was Dave Taylor? It’s kind of like Original Ronaldo aka Fat Ronaldo.

Age just a number: Total seasons a better indicator if 30-something players deserve new deals

The Titans have only won three games all season, yet Holbrook has escaped the axe that fell at three other clubs. He must be doing something right. Call the engravers!

Experts Roar: Coach of the year - Payten, Cleary, Fitzgibbon, Walters, Potter, Demetriou?

Like the sporting equivalent of a ghostwriter, I believe Steve Menzies is still playing first grade football under a different name. Possibly he’s in a full body suit, complete with mask, and is Nelson Asofa Solomona. All the foul play would be merely a consequence of struggling to balance in that outfit.

I’m not the man to ask about young forwards, but their biggest issue for the last decade has been game management. They’ve struggled to stem the bleeding in defense by controlling the tempo, and their attacking philosophy has been to just throw it to Ponga. Adding Pryce and keeping everyone on the park, particularly Brailey, means they have a good mix of organization at 7 and 9, and creativity at 1 and 6. They’re all young enough, but with a reasonable amount of experience. Clifford’s not a finished product, but he’d be going better if he had the same players around him every week.

NRL News: Fainu found guilty, Raiders shut out Stuart drama, Knights nab Super League duo, Amone re-signs

Yeah, things could get ugly. You almost feel like trying to talk Braith Anasta into a cameo.

Greece World Cup predicted squad: Titanic task awaits, but this team capable of upsets

The Knights could have a really good spine if they can all stay fit: Pryce, Ponga, Clifford, Brailey.

ARE WE NOT MEN?

Is Leichhardt Oval equipped to host professional sport?

But one day their Harleys are stolen from their respective garages and they’re forced to ride their kids’ bicycles to training. I’m thinking tassels, flower stickers, baskets on the front. And they’d still look vicious.

The best Wests Tigers players who never played representative football

I propose the next expansion NRL team be named the Sweathogs.

Like someone with the name Bernard is going to be a rockstar…

They’ve always been good at assembling squads with a dearth of representative players.

I believe the terminology is now “left arm wristspin.”

We’re in the 21st century, and Leichardt definitely hasn’t kept up. The Tigers don’t appreciate just how good it will be for them to tear off the band-aid.
Benny Elias would be livid, of course, which is always a good thing.

“How many of these players have ever been to New Zealand? ‘World’ Cup…”

New Zealand World Cup predicted squad: Should Kiwis actually be favourites?

Like when someone says “simples”, they have absolutely not solved the problem at hand. And when someone says “fake news”, they’re almost always the one spinning lies.

Why Stuart won't understand his petulance but consider himself a martyr after being banned

If that’s too much of a stretch, maybe he should try to coach his sides not to lose in the first place.

I just imagined Frank Hyde commentating Hoppa’s sins. “It’s straight enough and it’s high enough if it’s long enough…”
