Very rarely does a naming occur without being a proposal first, but I digress. I have searched the internet and I can’t find any references to Steel Dragons being officially adopted. Do you have a link? Happy to be proven wrong on this, but I can’t find anything.

What's in a name like the Dolphins?

Adding four new teams at once: what could possibly go wrong?

South Queensland Crushers best team ever

The Eels and Cowboys finished 19th and 20th that season. No wonder they… survived…

I’d back the bye against this team.

They dropped the ‘NZ’ in their name about ten years ago. They have been ‘The Warriors’ ever since. Forget the slippery slope, they already took their sheet of cardboard and slid back to the car.

The Steel Dragons nickname was a proposal that rightly never came to fruition.

Told you it would start an argument! 😂

Love it!

Bless the European Cricket League. I knew this footage would be from them even before clicking the link.

WATCH: 'The best dot ball in cricket history!' You've never seen a block this bonkers before

Hot take:
I actually liked the bottle green uniform introduced in 2000. Not saying Canberra should’ve abandoned the line green, just that the darker colour looked good.

I forgot
7. North Sydney 1998, with the centre of the jersey presumably meant to look like it had been torn by bear claws. That was that same time period where half the clubs were changing their emblems to make them look ‘tough’

Did the Crushers have a mascot at their home games, or did they just have a miniature train do a lap of the field every time they scored? Wouldn’t have happened often, mind you.

The only circumstance that the Bears could return is if Manly unexpectedly went belly-up a few weeks before the start of a season and North’s were prepared to step up with no notice. Not going to happen, though.

RIP to a great player, and from what I’ve heard, a great person.

What about the amount of anecdotes those two seem to be the centre of? That seems as good a metric as any. 😛

They were so bad that they were good.

Brisbane once did the M&M jersey against Manly in 1998. Looked a treat (actually, they didn’t. I just wanted to make the pun)

No Mark Waugh? That’ll start arguments. 😛

All-time worst nominees (not including themed round uniforms):

1. Those Northern Eagles jerseys that tried to combine red and maroon and had those stupid triangles on the side that vaguely resembled wings.

2. The early 2000’s Cowboys with horns on their chest that made them look like they all had breast implants.

3. The Storm away jerseys that were white with a thunderbolt across the front. It looked like a kid’s shirt from K-Mart

4. The hi-viz Knights. (My vote)

5. NSW 1997 (but pretty much all of their navy blue additions)

6. The court jester Broncos.

Did I miss any?

Behich needs to be backed by Arnold, privately and publicly, but his bad night does reinforce the need to develop more depth at left back. As hard as it is to find windows to play, Australia need to play some friendlies where others can get game time.

Keep your head up, Aziz - we’ve all had days like that

They were defanged from day one.

How can the Wests Tigers reach their potential?
