James Hooper is a nob. Targets the Storm for easy clicks. Best off doing yourself a favour and ignoring him.
I think it's time to add his name to the swear filter. Because when he googles himself, and he will, I want him to find as little as possible.

Pretty sure that just like Marge Simpson, James Hooper things googling yourself means the other thing.

Another absolute gem by Hooper earlier in the week. Top notch reporting Hoops ::)

Tui must still be recovering. That’s a shame.

To Hooper (verb) : To attempt to talk yourself up by saying something monumentally stupid or unbelievably wrong.

Loved seeing Bateman call out Hooper on social media.

Also 2. To attempt to drum up apathy and angst against a person or organisation due to one's own prejudice.

Now just 24 hours to go !! Judging from the first couple of games this week, it is going to be quick, and the dummy halves will play a big part. With C Smith and B Smith I think we are well-served in that area !

Resonably confident but concerned by Hodgson and refs who are biased by NSW opions.

As expected, fitness is king. The teams that can play footy through the middle will thrive. Cameron Smith, Munster and Paps to carve up.

Ashley Klein’s refereeing of the 10m was a joke. Roosters jumped early and were in front of him all night. He didn’t care. Then he pinged the Rabbits for not being square :roll:

Tactically, we should slow the first tackle in every set. Stop the opposition from gaining any momentum from a kick return. If we give away a 6 again, big deal, we lose 8-10m or one tackle.

Sorry, add Jahrome Hughes to that. He seems more suited to off the cuff footy and with his speed/footwork and big, tired forwards on the back foot... Hughes becomes just what you want in a halfback.
