Re: Round 23 - Storm vs Eels

I was wondering about another possible reason for Hughes out and Croft in was that Craig talked about the last game as a problem with game management. I don't think that JH has done anything to be dropped but when Dale Finucane had the ball on that last tackle there was something very wrong. JH has ...

Re: Round 23 - Storm vs Eels

I don't know whether there's any stats on this but when Suli comes out of the line to put a shot on someone, how many times has that been successful compared to how many tries he's let in because of the hole in the line.

Re: Round 21 - Rabbitohs vs Storm

I can certainly see the positives in putting B. Smith in but given the type of opposition, who do you drop?

Re: Round 19 - Warriors vs Storm

I remember an individual called Cherry Poppins who used to haunt the Bai Stand who now on the League Unlimited forum has turned into a real Mong. I think someone touched his little Snake.

Re: Billy Slater - Rep Retirement

Congrats to NSW for the series win but like Mr. Pool I felt that Qld was the better team. For 1. Retirements of the QLD 6,7 and 9 II. More Injuries. III. NSW Forward passes that achieved maximum results in game 1. Iv. Gifted a penalty try in game two and suffered a loss in game 3. IMO I'm sort of fe...

Re: Smith/Slater/Cronk Story

As I said; in modern society, to say nothing is more or less agreeing with the gossip and it gives it more air if you say nothing than denounce. I have no great desire to debate he rights or wrongs of your opinion as you are totally entitled to it. I am interested however, in your motivation to fur...

Re: Smith/Slater/Cronk Story

I'm afraid in modern society, you just cant do that. You have to face it head on. Else saying nothing is the same as confirming it is true. That is how modern journalism works No Cameron , modern journalism works on individuals giving air to such clickbait. We will never know the true story, the co...

Re: Smith/Slater/Cronk Story

A couple of things also irritated me. He claimed that he was with a cameraman when the alleged incident in Fiji happened. He's a nrl gossip columnist and there's no talk of turning the camera on! That would be Current Affair Gold. It's all anecdotal. The other thing is propagating the Sydney based m...

Re: Round 17 v Dragons

YH, I never actually said I like the bloke at all and I agree that a. it wasn't planned and b. the ref was week with not only the non-send off but how the penalty was applied. It's only my opinion given the state of play at the time, a full on melee and front rowers trying to intimidate. And I think...

Re: Round 17 v Dragons

The bite was disgraceful, and he was rightly suspended heavily for it (Internationals shouldn't have counted in my opinion), and he was blasted for it heavily throughout the media at the time. It was 6 years ago though and certainly hasn't been repeated behaviour. As SS says, it's not repeated beha...

Re: Round 16 - Roosters vs Storm

If there are any issue between the GOAT and Cooper Cronk, what does it matter ?. As long as Cameron Smith will leads Storm around the park with more victories and losses and Cooper Cronk plays for another club, who cares if they've had a falling out.

Re: Round 15 - Knights vs Storm

I think we at least need more options at HB. Croft may succeed yet; but there are still big risks around him and we still have a window of opportunity for the next two or so years with the GOAT in his prime and Munster running riot. If we don't find a decent HB, we will be a good team sitting about...

Re: Round 15 - Knights vs Storm

So if Hughes comes in to FB, do we go Young on the bench or go for some size. I'd love to see Pat K be given a run.
