Re: Finals Week 1

How it wasn't advantage to Papenhuyzen is beyond me, as was the ruling on their kick not being advantage taken. No point in the rule if that's how it's policed. Are you referring to the linebreak after the eels broke the scrum early? I don't think the advantage rule applies to scrum infringements. ...

Brandon Smith did an online interview with NRL.com and said Munster could be playing this week and what a great healer he was.
He may have realised what he divulged because he moved off topic quickly.

Re: Blake Green

Perhaps he could mentor some of the younger guys. He has a wealth of experience to draw on from here and the UK. He also seems to have the personality to be able to take more of a developmental role. Kind of like Benji at the tigers perhaps but hopefully with more impact on the field!

Quinn is the only one I can think of
Yup that's a good example. In general I don't think the club puts too much value on players (especially outside backs) who have achieved success outside of our system.

Official we will play Roosters at Suncorp
It's pretty much our second home ground isn't it? We've have a pretty good record at Suncorp in recent years.

Re: Official thread and signing news

Alex Johnston being reportedly squeezed out of Rabbitohs due to salary cap. Do we look at him as a replacement for Foxx and Suli? Or do you think his price tag would be too expensive? I would really prefer us not to have another sub-90kg winger that is ineffective in getting our sets off to a good ...

I think the Tigers would play Grant ahead of Reynolds and Walters.
Agreed

Re: Official thread and signing news

Anyone thinking that we will retain both Brandon and Harry past 2021 is delusional, regardless of what Smithy does. I tend to agree with that. Good hookers are at a premium at the moment and there's no chance we would be able to have 2 NRL quality 9s on the books moving forward with other clubs wil...

When was the last time we won two trials in pre-season? Not sure what to take away from that... Probably the same thing we take away each year, not a whole lot.
Surely it means we can expect some new silverware for the cabinet? :lol: :lol: :lol:

Re: Half Back for 2020

I thought Hughes looked good in the Warriors trial. Excited to see him play halfback this year with a pre-season under his belt in the position. I have so much more confidence in his HB play than I did Croft... I feel like there was just some underlying expectation that Croft would work out and eve...

Re: Official thread and signing news

SMH (Adrian Proszenko) With the swap deal falling through, Harry Grant is now seeking a release. There are quotes from Harry in the article so I don’t doubt it’s credibility. He can seek a release all he wants but as long as he's useful the club should keep him on the books. He will probably get so...

Re: Curtis Scott

So far NAS is the only one to be punished for anything :-\ The Fafita incident is really puzzling to me. It seems to be quite similar to NAS except he is charged with an offence. I guess the NRL thinks that NAS' incident was a bigger hit to the game's reputation because it was captured on video. Th...
