    Round 11 Discussion

    Back to Pearce, his career highlights the fine line all 'game managers' are judged against. A half can put in the exact same performance and if they win they're a great half and if they lose they're an 'overrated hack'. There's so little between a Cooper Cronk and a Mitchell Pearce, yet...

    Round 11 Discussion

    Since this evening when Read and Badel broke the story. The Maroons stocks are so low in the centres and at dummy half they have little choice. It's either pick Mbye or go with Granville or Milford, neither of whom provide any versatility.

    Round 11 Discussion

    Got it in one mate. Even in games, Pearce can throw the best long pass of anyone, but he'll only bring it out when the game is over. There was a State of Origin game where Pearce threw the best pass of the series and NSW went onto score this great length of the field try. He never threw...

    Round 11 Discussion

    I have a rule about tipping teams in horrible form so I didn't back Penrith, but I'm not shocked by the result. Firstly, Parramatta have been in poor form themselves and the make-up of their side didn't look great on paper. Second, Penrith looked much improved on paper with Mansour and RCG back...

    TV Show Thread

    Barry is one of my favourite television shows on air. The Grosse Pointe Blank premise brought me in, but the balance between drama and comedy has kept me around. I'm genuinely surprised by how good Bill Hader is in this. I've always enjoyed his side characters in comedy movies but haven't seen...

    Papalii will be one of the first players picked. Unless McGuire's calf is playing up, he'll be there ahead of Arrow. I don't like it myself and much prefer Jai's defence, but it is what it is. Scott > Ofahengaue hurts my soul, but I suspect it will happen.

    2019 Origin Discussion

    I'm not 100% sold on Munster either, but the current Maroons administration see him as a 30 game Origin player. I don't think he's quite earned that reputation yet despite his efforts at Suncorp Stadium. I was largely unimpressed with his performances in big games last year and thought he was...

    NRL Rumour and Movements - 2019

    I'm not sure what to make of Watene-Zelezniak. When Dallin first hit the scene at Penrith, he was being talked about in a similar vein as Tuivasa-Sheck, Trbojevic etc. as an elite back of the competition. I've been watching his progress since he made his debut at NRL level and he's never kicked...

    Broncos Player Movement and Rumours 2019

    I brought that up with a bunch of Cowboys fans a few months ago. I remember when that happened, they were ropeable and couldn't believe Farrar wasn't being held to a king's ransom. With the benefit of hindsight, I don't think the trade was that bad. It wasn't like Farrar went onto become Kalyn...

    Broncos Player Movement and Rumours 2019

    That's a strange move by the Cowboys. In fact, the way they've treated Jake Clifford has been extremely strange this season, almost like Green was pressured into playing him against his will. Green believes Martin/Morgan is the best halves combination at the club but injuries and roster...

    I didn't think it should have gone that far. The referees completely made up a six again call and if ever the conspiracy theorists had any weight for a tight finish, that was it. It reminded me a lot of the phantom penalty Greg Bird received in Game II 2014 that Hodkinson happened to score off...

    Speaking of obstruction calls. @Dexter what did you make of Warea-Hargreaves' effort on Friday?

    Best ingame moments of the past 10 (or so) years

    As good as Lockyer was at the twilight of his career, that knee reconstruction spelled the end of him being a dominant force in the competition. The knee reconstruction hindered his game and took some of the edge out of the Broncos. The other big disaster that season was losing Petero...

    Just heard the news, if there's one guy who deserves a break it's him and I'm glad he doesn't have to go through all that extensive rehab. The lotto ticket is a classic. Hopefully Joe O gets the nod in his stead and he does the team proud.

    Best ingame moments of the past 10 (or so) years

    Brisbane were never in line to win the 2004 premiership, but it set them up for future success. The transition of Lockyer from fullback to five-eighth made the Broncos more potent and the shock selection of Karmichael Hunt proved a master stroke. The emergence of talent like David Stagg, Brett...

    It's a shame the Tigers right-side is so toothless in attack. They had Melbourne in all sorts down the left but just didn't give them enough space to worry Croft, Seve and Vunivalu as much as they should have. I thought Papenhuyzen was exceptional in his debut game at fullback. After that try...
