we have the former Melbourne CEO ... who i think everyone on here rates, and even he isn't going against the NRL on these matters. could that possibly mean, we're better off not speaking out 🤔

Hard to know if it is better or not when we never ever speak out. Though the fact we continue to get smashed on and off the field by decisions that only ever seem to go against us would suggest speaking out isn't going to make it worse.

Honestly, what's the worst that can come from speaking out? Cowboys won a premiership from whinging. At the very least we get some good calls the next game we play. At most we get fined, have Karl Morris say it. He's rich as **** for some reason

what’s the reason for not being able to play gamble… is it just the because he was not named in the 21?

Interrupted week from sickness (It's what I heard earlier in the week and that Hunt would be playing) and the NRL would make us jump through hoops to bring him in at this point.

yes.

we've applied for an exemption. to be able to bring him in as we have no other regular half in our squad. usually granted in these cases

“It’s good to see Payne with a smile on his face, albeit at Queensland’s expense. He is bouncing around training and Xavier is looking to get himself back into some winning form, so they are ready to go and keen to get down to Canberra.”

McHunt

Hopefully lifts the spirits of 78 other New South Welshmen in the squad as well. Shame the Kiwis didn't play and get a win, or basically the whole team would be jubilant.

Kelly is a big out, we will need something special to get some attack in this game, Hopefully from Herbie.

Didn’t jelly leave the nrl due to consistent injuries? Amazing he got 6 years out in the super league and lasts 3 games back here

I realise Kevvie is considering his options at the moment but I wonder what his plan for K hunt is when he hits the wall after 20 mins. Will gamble play 2 positions at once? Will he somehow sneak young Billy in wearing one of his old jerseys? Or is it time to play his trump card with Isaako at 5/8? Can this year get any worse for the poor guy. Chin up Kevvie.

Walters press conference on pretty much everything to do with this match. Says it's not a trial for Herbie, but then contradicts himself by saying it's his "chance" to show what he can do there. Says the usual platitudes - that actually panned out with Milford and Dearden - about Oates and Isaako needing to go back (to ISC) and work on a few things and he'll be sure they'll be back in the NRL. When he says "NRL" whether he means the Broncos is up to you to interpret:

Don't worry Kev has a plan B

I wish Kevvie would share some light on what exactly those things are that Corey Oates needs to do better, I understand why he doesn't but as a fan I am sitting here thinking about the great game he had against Penrith and the Titans, he was instrumental in both of those performances.

He had a pretty ordinary game against Manly and we haven't seen him since.

It was nice to see Payne Haas smiling though as NSW racked up 50, I hate NSW but part of me was thinking if there is ever a bloke in the comp who deserves to be out there revelling in the joy of beating the shit out of the opposition it would be Payne Haas.

Been our best player for the last few seasons at least and we continue to get pounded but he continues to be in the conversation as the best prop in the game.

I have no doubt he has let Corey know. that's all that matters

Other than staying on his wing and maintain ball control I can’t see what else he needs to do. He’s not going to get faster that’s for sure.
