    PRE-GAME Round 23 - Broncos vs Rabbitohs

    Goodness, a half who attacks the line! How novel. We won't know ourselves. Anyway, this game has just become really winnable as long as SOS and our edge forwards work together in running onto the ball instead of catch-pass rubbish from Turps. Can't wait

    Well, I'll re-frame. Put the team first - keep away from the head of the opposition. If you can't or won't, get therapy while you are suspended. Simples

    The doctor is in ... I don't give a shit about justifications for aggression and adrenaline when it screws the team. It means in theory that we will have 1 or 2 players sin binned every time they play? That's good?

    Egos? Means showing off, and putting themselves ahead of the team, careless, reckless, not thinking. Every player ought to know how the NRL reacts to attacking the head of an opposing player whether or not it hurts or harms. You just don' do it

    They are both total dickheads who put their damn egos ahead of the team's best interests.

    Well, I'm looking forward to a real half back and hopefully more of Perese v the Wabbits

    POST GAME Round 22 - Broncos vs Panthers

    Well, Turps is a total dickhead for attacking the head of a player with a stiff arm. WTF do you think the refs are going to do, whether or not it hurts the attacker? Fuckwit , putting ego ahead of the team, and the same applies to TPJ. You just don't go near the head of an opposing player when...

    No it's not on Oates. Oates did, as you rightly say, what he had to because of the poor defensive reads by Shiba and Fifita The problem however remains: how to tighten the edge defence given the lapses in defence by the newbies which have, and will be, exploited by the better sides and will...

    PRE-GAME Round 23 - Broncos vs Rabbitohs

    The problem for mine was that we were short on our left side and Maloney saw that. It wasn't because Dariu$$$ had moved, the space was there because defenders like Fifita didn't slide, didn't read the play, and Shiba was his usual half asleep, out of position self. Just awful defence, and why...

    What a defensive dog's breakfast: Boyd (?), Shiba running around headless, Oates leaving his wing. Three (3) defenders coming in one (1) attacker, leaving the try scorer free Bloody hell, what a shambles

    PRE-GAME Round 23 - Broncos vs Rabbitohs

    Nah, Gillo for mine offers way to much in defence on the edges to be pensioned off yet. Teams target us out wide relentlessly 'cos our edge defence is suspect under pressure. Staggs and Isaako go to sleep too often on crucial plays, and Shiba is all over the shop. Also, If you look at the stats...

    I thought Macca did well. He is at last taking on the line a lot more, which led to a try. Amazing isn't it what happens when he looks for opportunities. It's a pity he won't take more time to check opportunities before simply shovelling the ball to the nearest prop.

    PRE-GAME Round 23 - Broncos vs Rabbitohs

    Souths play bog standard attacking football. Their main focus is getting the ball out wide really quickly and isolating the defending winger, pretty much what all the good teams do. The wrap around play out wide to create the extra space is a good example. The key is execution at which Souths...
