Re: All Blacks World Cup-winner TJ Perenara to Roosters?

And no doubt, like Sonny Bill, it will be at a budget rate. One time offer, Roosters only, other teams need not apply!

Re: Round 6 - Storm vs Roosters

Very good performance all around. A few mistakes, but overall excellent.
Ref creating new rules cost us the only points. Since when is running 5 metres and kicking on the first not taking advantage?

Re: Round 4 v Broncos

So... Ryan Papenhuyzen’s pretty good huh? Yeah, he goes ok. I actually think the single most telling moment of the game was just after Melbourne's first try. Behind the line Paps put his arm around Eddie's shoulder and is whispering in his ear the same way Cam Smith used to with playmakers, and Mun...

No doubt Kent will unleash on Fox tonight. Maybe the club is giving him enough rope to hang himself. I hope so.

Re: RD 3 vs Panthers

That tackle is called the “prowler”. Did some googling and it’s been around since at least 2008. There’s some varying opinions on its legality. Probably worth at least a fine these days. Which one of our players invented it, or was it just another Bellamy creation? :rolleye: Most famous for Riley B...

Re: RD 3 vs Panthers

Apparently it wasn't a penalty for offside because it was knocked into our player first... that seems to be what Bellamy was told before his press conference. Well they are wrong. After a knock on the ball is still live - even if it touches an opposition player. The non-offending team can pick the ...

Re: RD 3 vs Panthers

Refs were never going to give us that. That should have been a try. Also the clear offside by the Panthers with 30 seconds to go - no penalty.
Having said that, all due respect that last try saver was amazing.

Re: RD 3 vs Panthers

So, player is held and it's legal to shoulder charge into his ribs. Really?
Think Munster will be in trouble for a hip drop though.

Re: RD 3 vs Panthers

Jennings and R. Smith on the right again. Not impressed. We have conceded 6 tries this season, 5 of them down the right. Three due to poor positioning and two due to not effectively managing (or indeed competing for) a high kick. Dean Ieremia is on the reserves list; I'd be more than happy to risk g...

There’s currently 17 teams with 14 (possibly less) with seniors

Will be good to finally get going again

If anyone else on here is from an NRL Vic club post your club below

Mine is North West Wolves
Thanks Sally. Great idea.

Re: Round 2 - Eels vs Storm

Parra Doesn't Matter won't be much of a threat to us if we play like we did during the first half last week. But if we build a lead early then make stupid errors like last week, we can expect Parra to punish us. Also, we are guaranteed to be handed more biased commentary on both Fox and Nine since ...
