    VOTE Who should play for our right center?

    Just watched the Roberts highlight reels, and Renouf's as well. While Roberts is nowhere near the complete footballer the Pearl was, damn I miss Jimmy's explosive acceleration, sheer speed and agility, that x-factor which made watching him at his best so exhilarating and which I think is pretty...

    PRE-GAME Round 11 - Warriors vs Broncos

    Um, we seemed to handle Keary and Cronk ok so what's this doom and gloom about Kodi and Green? They are not a patch on the chooks halves. The issue for this game is to maintain the passion which underpinned the victory against the premiers, and the rest will take care of itself. If anyone...

    VOTE Who should play for our right center?

    Well, in the Wabbits game, I remember Milf chip kicking for Roberts who nearly regathered and that would have been a try, again IIRC. For mine, that sort of set play is an excellent way of using Roberts's pace. AT a minimum, it certainly turns the defence around and puts them in two minds every...

    Well this is about our right centre not Boyd so I have said my piece.

    VOTE Who should play for our right center?

    I can't agree with that. Last night in particular, I felt Boyd was the glue that held our young side together for lot of the game. I felt he showed some real leadership which is exactly what we needed, and exactly what many of us here have complained we lacked. Boyd is stepping up as captain...

    ... and Lodge and Flegler and Carrigan and Fifita and Offa and Glenn ... and also, build on what we did so effectively last night : Haas and TPJ offloading at the line to break up the defensive line. As someone else I think posted, if we are to be finals contenders, this for mine is a must win...

    POST GAME Round 10 - Broncos vs Roosters

    I have heard and read - can't recall where, that Shiba is very solid defensively, and last night I thought his defensive reads were outstanding, making crucial tackles. In attack, he just needs to find his rhythm and confidence. I reckon he is a cut above Roberts atm especially in defence. As...

    POST GAME Round 10 - Broncos vs Roosters

    I'm still shaking my head at how good our forwards played tonight as a pack and individually, warts (there were a few) and all. Outclassing the NRL benchmark pack is no small feat, especially for such a young set of forwards. One other thing I noticed, and Seibold commented on, was the...

    POST GAME Round 10 - Broncos vs Roosters

    Well, I disagree. His defence tonight was excellent, our right edge is tight thanks to his defence, his running was good against very tight defence, I didn't see him bent backwards tonight once, he dropped ONE ball, yes, bombed a try, yet how many tries has Bird bombed? For mine, Gillett's...

    POST GAME Round 10 - Broncos vs Roosters

    I also wonder where does Roberts fit in now? Aside from that one heart wrenching fumble, Shiba did really really well. This is the squad to go forward, with Carrigan on rotation. Unbelievably dominant performance by the forwards. Pretty much one of the best performance by a pack of forwards I...

    The Turpin-Segeyaro combo is just what this team needed. Turpin was simply outstanding

    Loved Fifita busting Mitchell. That effort was the perfect summation of the energy and effort of the whole team tonight. Stunning performance by every single player.

    They are just too fast and we are just too fucking slow to react

    PRE-GAME Round 10 - Broncos vs Roosters

    For mine the main reason the chooks are so good is that they execute everything so damn fast. The only way to counter that is to dominate them in defence and sit them on their collective arse, exactly as we did in THAT game with Thaiday leading the way, crunching JWH.

    PRE-GAME Round 10 - Broncos vs Roosters

    My fear for this game is slow/lazy/asleep marker defence ... Tedesco going up the middle after he is given 10m of space to run around anyone in front of him, and slow to form defensive line when the Roosters do their trademark "spread the field" on either side. Tedesco actually worries me a lot...

    This guy looks really special. His positional play for one so young is outstanding, and I love his energy.

    I'm looking forward to watching Ryan Papenhuyzen play for the Storm. He looks the goods. I wonder what we could achieve with a FB like him.
