Re: Official thread and signing news

Yeah, it seems to me like he's really got his nose out of joint (pardon the pun) with the club after the whole "white powder" incident and the scrutiny that followed... I'm sure being in Sydney will help him with that! Or perhaps he's revelled in the media coverage and attention that he's ...

Re: Official thread and signing news

Tui has been stood down by the club for an incident with a women Just seems since Dave donaghy left and Justin rodski came it’s been problem after problem I don't see the link between these two statements. Did Justin have something to do with Tui & this woman? What other incidents could Justin ...

Re: Sunshine Coast Lightning

I don't see why they couldn't get their own thread somewhere in the Everything Else section of this board.

There is also an existing thread already started for the Lightning in the Other Sports sub-section of Everything Else.

Re: Official thread and signing news

Great idea - seems like a no-brainer to me, especially for players that are signed or have committed long-term to a club.

Re: Official thread and signing news

I thought he already conceded that he's not an effective 80-minute hooker - his style of play just doesn't suit that role, and he's a lot less effective when he has to play extended minutes, so the Storm role actually gets the best out of him.

Re: End of year celebrations - to be investigated

Dunno where the 4 game punishment talk came from but that was never going to happen. Given how they've treated Bromwich for his indiscretion I think all the words from the club mean very little tbh. Hopefully Munster can sort himself out. Seems to be in a dark place. No, I was thinking they'd proba...

Re: End of year celebrations - to be investigated

Sounds about right - a bit lighter in regards to the suspension than what I was expecting from the NRL actually.

Watch the NRL now schedule a big 'prime time' rivalry game for us in Round 1 knowing that we'll be undermanned though - Roosters, Manly or Penrith.

Re: End of year celebrations - to be investigated

Meanwhile our club and CEO get blasted in the media for "hiding under the table" and not dealing with this swiftly enough, you know, in our usual unprofessional manner... while the NRL do nothing to clarify the situation and change the narrative for us. So f*cking typical.

Me too - kind of awkward now, and certainly wouldn't go down very well in the media (not that anything we do ever does). Maybe this makes Brandon ineligible now, and they give it to Hughes instead?

Fox Sports have already named Chris Lewis as the third player.

Re: End of year celebrations - to be investigated

If you're stupid enough to be doing what they were obviously doing, you're stupid enough to record it (or not care that it was). I'm starting to not really care whether we end up losing Munster to a new Brisbane team - his lacklustre or ineffective games are now just about equaling (or even outnumbe...

Re: Some perspective

I agree - we threw away the all-time consecutive win record against the Eels with a disappointing, unenthusiastic performance, and now our best shot at back-to-back premierships.

It was a great year overall, but it could've been so much more, which certainly leaves a sour taste.
