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

    Just thought of another one! Josh Hoffman scoring a hat-trick against Melbourne. I can't remember the year and I don't think we won the game but not too many players can boast scoring three tries against the Melbourne Storm brick wall.

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

    I remember Jack Reed scored a spectacular try against Melbourne one night. He beat multiple defenders, ran about 50 metres. He just wouldn't quit.

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

    I think this is an excellent idea for a thread @Caniffe Two spring to mind for me. 1. Lachlan Maranta's try against the Raiders in 2015. Maranta capped off a stunning play right on half time. The Raiders were almost in. We somehow got the ball and kept it alive. Ben Hunt was awesome in this...

    PLAYER Jake Turpin is good

    Guys, we need to calm down. Jake Turpin is a back-up dummy half. Andrew McCullough is our main hooker. When he is fit he will be in the side. Now, let's get to the good stuff. The most interesting thing so far about Turpin's fledgling career (and we're sorta seeing it here) is that I think...

    2019 is shaping to be a VERY forgettable season

    Malcolm Knox wrote a very funny article at the start of the year. Here's what he predicted about the NRL: - RUGBY LEAGUE Or, as we know it, the year of the groundhog. The Roosters and Storm contest their second straight grand final. Both clubs are the top two all year, after most of their...

    PLAYER Andrew McCullough

    So I've been thinking more about Andrew McCullough - the Great Enigma. I've also been thinking of Jake Turpin. A potential replacement. Here's Turpin's description from the Broncos website: This clever hooker established himself as the premier back up to Andrew McCullough with a couple of...

    OFFICIAL Kodi Nikorima Joins the Warriors

    and yet he gave this impassioned, emotional defense of Wayne Bennett last year regarding the debacle at Newcastle and how Wayne wasn't to blame. Which a lot of people on here loved... Or was that Steve Crawley? I'm confused. I can't keep up with the imaginary phantoms in my mind that...

    Agreed. But look on the bright side - this thread could generate more lolz than the Conspiracy Theory one.

    OFFICIAL Kodi Nikorima Joins the Warriors

    Guys, I just had a horrible thought. If Kodi leaves, who will be our scapegoat? Y'know for the times we continue to derp it up. Boyd? Milf? Macca? Bennett haunting us from a new life? When we finally unearth this mythical game manager and organiser and he still has to contend with lollipop...

    Great defence from the Bunnies.

    PRE-GAME Round 7 - Broncos vs Sharks

    Loving your optimism. Don't agree about the Sharks. They came back from 14-0 down to take the win. They have an absolute speedster in their backline (I forget his name) who will roast us if our defence hasn't improved. Some games are easier than others but there's no such thing as an easy...

    Channel Nine just put up a graphic showing Wayne Bennett has coached 820 first grade games. Unbelievable! Geez, he'd have to come close to 900 in the next couple of years. He's probably well over 1000 if you factor in his time coaching Origin, Tests and coaching in the Brisbane...

    Party like it's 1999?

    Let him go mate. His pleasent weekend distraction has become an obsession.

    Is this the great enigma thread?

    Nah mate. Didn't see it. That doesn't fit the narrative. Craig Bellamy would never fall for an obvious play like that. Neither would Smith. Rugby League is not about running hard and tackling hard. It's about strategies and structure.

    That's footy mate. I know that's a BS answer but sometimes that happens. Like Slater's try against us last year where he blatantly dropped it, put a boot to the ball, managed to regather and score. Locky asked him about it after the game and they both just laughed. "That's footy."...

    Lol... look I get the fact we're all rusted on fans just going through the motions but this is ridiculous. The Storm busted their arses to get back in the game. Plenty of life and energy in their second half performance.

    Lol fair go mate. Broncos - Cowboys have never had a rivalry. For most of our history it's been one way traffic. We're a couple of teams based north of the Tweed that just happened to play in a couple of close games - one of them was a Grand Final. Great game tonight. Both teams are so...
