I’ve never been a great fan of League-ies coming across to rugby, and landing in Test sides without playing at least a few years dues, but Hunt is SO much better than Kerevi that I’m willing to  change my stance. Hunt can stay in a defensive line, he can understand his role in that line, […]

Burgess was in the squad for the same reason the Wallabies picked Sailor, Tuquri, Rogers et al (not to mention some actual rugby players) because their Unions pay them big dollars to switch codes, and aren’t going to leave their major signings on the bench or off the field. Sam Burgess selection the tipping point […]

Yeah yeah – he’s a lovely guy. He just happens to play a violent contact sport and occasionally brainfades happen and someone gets hurt. Staffies are beautiful friendly dogs, just occasionally they bite the face off the next door neighbour’s child… Melbourne Storm probe NRL over failure to send off Sia Soliola for Billy Slater […]

What a trite conversation piece. Is it wise for the NRL to keep employing The Plane when he makes such ridiculous comparisons? I wonder if he knows the market forces involved in the US? More particularly, does he realize the hold that NFL has on revenue streams? Does he even know the population of the […]

Oh Gawd I am SO sick of these w****ers and their entitlements. You’re a handy footballer mate, not a brain surgeon. The only reason you get paid at all is because some people are willing to watch you play, and because advertisers know that lots of people watch your game on the telly. Everytime I […]

I think it’s wrong that Reynolds (or really any rugby league player, or professional rugby player for that matter) can afford a personalised number plate, let alone the Mercedes to put it on. Have you heard the guy talk? He’s barely literate. Lucky he can play footy because he might just be too dumb even to […]

I’m sure James understands the “disappointment” that Paul White feels. I’m also sure James knows that when he gets on the turps sometimes bad things happen, especially to him. And now I’m sure that James mostly feels bullet-proof because, like so many others before, he can breach contract clauses, the law, and common morality, and […]

Weidler says that Greg Bird  “is no dummy…quite the opposite…” The dictionary describes stupid as : Given to unintelligent decisions or acts : acting in an unintelligent or careless mannerc : lacking intelligence or reason : brutish So it would seem, Weidler, that he IS in fact stupid as, since these words very accurately describe […]

Hopoate forgets to mention that some of his “past mistakes” happened within the last 12 months. Perhaps he thinks that his most  “famous” finger-poking mistake was helping boys become men. In which case, he’d make a great priest…SIGH… via John Hopoate says he’ll make good men of Manly boys.

Yeah, he’s a magnificent physical specimen. Yeah, he’s an extremely gifted athlete. But let’s face facts – Nonu has shown him how far he still has to go to be in the same class as someone who’s played the game his whole life, and SBW is out of time. He’s 30 years old, and spent […]
