yeah the Club Challenge format changes from next year.
It will be played in the opposite hemisphere (England or Australia) that the Test Series/World Cup is played, so we should see an Australian game next year.

Foxtel are SPEWIN because they planned for Boxer Sonny bore Williams to be playing this weekend but he wont be. They were expecting up to 200 000 viewers.

Did you guys get an email from the NRL ?
I got some brochure thing, was nicely made, had the digital page turn thing.
quite classy.
Hopefully a sign the game is being treated a bit more professionally in marketing.

Just watched Storm vs Leeds. Don't know how Sinfield won golden boot, he offered nothing, his kick out wide wasn't that great. The try/goal line area is lots smaller than the NRL, it's like an extra 2 - 3 metres in, doesn't allow for much bombing/kicking.

The atmosphere in that game is heaps better than games in the NRL though!

The Broncos played ok.
Were much better when Prince came on.
Hodges played well too.

I watched the first 60 mins then went out, thought NZ would cave but they ended up scoring back to back then another to win. Good to see Prince taking on the kicking, Parker was always a dodgy boot.

Agree with all the above.
Broncs bombed about 4 tries IMO so was alright except for that.

well on the one hand you have nz fans who think the entire world revolves around them and that every player that is speculated to leave a team is going to go to the warriors and that they are just generally the best ever in existence, so they are acting like the premiership is in the bag after last night

then you have the dumbs*** brisbane fans who have written the season off after that match, the players should be ashamed of themselves, blaming refs etc etc there is one guy in particular on there who was saying we have to sign JT because the broncos have always had a qld/australian rep half and that's just how it has to be

and then there is the few on there who are just like 'it's a trial game guys.... chill'

Dogs are f***ed, Barba was responsible for 90% of their scoring. If he didn't score the try himself, he set it up. I doubt he will be out for long though, unless he did something that should see him banned from the sport.

Will be really interesting to see how the teams develop this year with all the post/pre-season line-up changes. Cowboys, Storm and Rabbitohs seem like the most stable at the moment but who knows what will happen when the whistle blows?

Sharks story getting interesting with "Duty of Care" possibilities for players banned.
Sharkies story

I also find this interesting,
It is understood the products were not on the World Anti-Doping Agency's banned list at the time but both were included in the Australian Crime Commission report into doping and match fixing under the heading "Performance and Image Enhancing Substances".

so if it wasn't on the list how can they be in trouble? surely they can't make this retrospective?

I think the players will play because i doubt there is enough physical evidence for them to be convicted. If anything the Club bares the responsibility.

SBW "well bro u know its like i have to run bro and u know i run a bit and maybe later i pass bro"

That elevator doesnt go to the top floors.

SBW did nothing and threw a forward pass, what a waste of money and hype.
He treated the Bulldogs and the game like a piece of s*** and now they suck up to him.

hes passed it, too many headknocks.
i thought Maloney was good at halfback and Jennings is still dangerous.
Roosters have a good side there and might make the 8.

his first games back was always going to be low key and he will continue like that until he's completely back in the fold , he made 28 tackles and scored a try

why would i expect anything but overly sensationalized stupidity from that poster

I only watched the second half (website said kickoff was at 8pm, f*****g liar!).

Broncos seem unfit to me which is a bad start to a season. Manly were starting to show signs of fatigue as well and it was a wet surface but Broncos were clearly well behind them in terms of match fitness.

Prince and Wallace showed a good long kicking game but they haven't clicked yet in attack. That lack of effort on the kick chase was disgraceful and some of the "I don't want it, you take it" passing showed a lack of leadership and was frustrating to watch since it kept resulting in mistakes and turnovers.

After all the hype about the Rosters before last night they managed to show they haven't changed a bit despite all the line-up changes.

Anyone know where I can get a stream for tonights game.

Austar disconnected my sports and stuff while we were overseas. We only have basic channels now. I figure it will take longer to activate it if I ring them now.

CBF going to the pub.

Dont mind paying 10$ or something if I have to as long as there isn't a million registration hoops to jump through.

Any ideas?

I'm ok with the ones I lost. Eels and Penrith were f*****g horrible last year, if they've improved for this season that's great but I don't feel bad about tipping against them in the first round.

I changed my tip to the Titans on Friday and never changed it back when it was confirmed Sharks were putting out a full team. Titans actually performed a lot better than I expected, they out played the Sharks in the second half but at the same time it seemed the Sharks were starting to show signs of horse steroid withdrawals.

Storm still look like the team to beat this year.

Qld teams letting me down, tipping wise.

Titans played like they could make the top 4, Broncos played like they will be getting the wooden spoon.

Didn't think the Titans would be able to back up after last week, especially against a team as good as Manly. They are looking about as good as they were back when Matty Rodgers was still playing.

4 halves on the field for the Broncos, a heap of time spent in the opponents half and they couldn't score once.

Broncos are playing way too flat and aren't supporting the ball runners at all.

Roosters broke through their line nearly every time they got the ball in the second half, if they were able to hold onto it and complete their sets the scoreline would have blown out. I think their s***** defense was due to their demoralization in offense though since they defended pretty well last week. They were tiring faster than the Roosters as well which is a pretty poor effort considering the lack of defending they did.

IMO they didn't do enough work in the pre-season, lack leadership on the field and they really should not have come into the season with 4 halves in the side. This points more to poor management than simply a need to learn combinations.

I'm ok with Hunt, he's a good utility player to have on the bench. I wouldn't call him a hooker though.

I think they should have cut ties with Corey Norman though. They've been playing Norman like a 3rd half in offense and he doesn't have the defensive chops for fullback IMO. Hodges looked much better at fullback last week.

There's a good chance he will be going to the Eels anyway, no point in carrying him and he clearly doesn't have a place in the team next year when Copley and Yow Yeh return.

copely still hasn't shaken the Toyota cup player filling in at the top level tag for me and still plays like that

I think norman could become a good fullback fixing his D isn't undoable, just depends if they're willing to just make a call, stick with it and put the effort in. at the moment they're chopping and changing

I get the feeling that, whats the word ???, 'mediocrity' has crept in at the Broncos, if they win half their games thats ok. Theyve become a mid-table team. With the amount of quality support they have at the Club the Broncos should be at the top of the table. Only one or two other Clubs would have a Club structure the equal of the Broncos.

They had been preparing for Locky to leave for quite a while.
None of those younger backs that they have groomed have stepped up.
Hence why they signed Prince which seems to have made little difference.

problem with hoffman is he is pretty unreliable in attack, but has the great defence and ball covering ability

i found watching ever since he had been fullback that most of the time they would try the pet second man play the majority of the time he would drop the ball/not quite be in the right position/throw a bad pass that gets dropped or missed completely

i don't know, if norman want to play 5/8 then good luck to him he had his shot last year and most of it wasn't that great, admitedly not all of his fault our forward pack died in the ass big time after origin time and never eally recovered which doesn't help any half

thaiday and hannant and the other forwards stepped up tonight which laid the platform for the points they put on

that second man play they used to score those tries had me reminiscing of the karmichael hunt at full back days it was coming off so sweetly - the key is they need time and the forwards haven't been providing that for a while

yep sux for you, if thaiday can keep that form up running into origin along with the other ridiculous form already on display from Thurston, Cronk, Smith, Slater, Inglis, Hodges then i'd be worried

the biggest thing they have to worry about is complacency in the qld team, I've been saying this for a while now and I think it's why nsw have come close the last couple of years

I don't reckon. It's only three games and it would be pretty poor management from the coaching end if complacency found its way into the side. Surely it's not hard to keep your guard up for three games especially when the other side is coming after you so hard. I thought NSW genuinely played well last year and I was really happy with everything... apart from the series loss which was just one point.

Even though Cronk was there to take his place, Lockyer was a massive loss I think. Cameron Smith is a cool head and an awesome captain but losing those years and years of experience has to take its toll. The QLD forwards were also totally outplayed last year as well and hopefully they will be again this year. It's our one strong point. Our big weak link are our halves. Pearce is a joke and Carney is as green as grass. Carney showed he can play excellently during the 2010 season and is a genuinely good player so hopefully he can get over his nerves and play well, and hopefully Pearce dies of AIDS because seriously f*** that guy. Hopefully Mullen gets a run this year whenever I watch him play he always impresses me. At least we are out of the doldrums of 2008-2010. There were some truly insipid NSW performances in those years.

I view the regular season as simply a selection process for SoO in case you are wondering why I am talking about it so early in the season :P

I don't know if the Broncos performance tonight somewhat redeems them for last week or makes last week against a much weaker team look even worse.

Horse steroids.

Adam Reynolds is the future half of NSW IMO.

NSW's problem is that they always want to win "this year" and never seem to have the patience to build a team and simply throw around knee-jerk selection reactions every time things don't go their way. I mean, how much of a massive deal did they make about picking Farrah last year? Someone who should have been getting experience in the side for 4 or 5 years but now comes in with only a couple of representative games under his belt is treated like the great white hope of NSW.

IMO Adam Reynolds needs to be if not the starting half, given a bench spot like Cronk used to have for Qld.

I am not excited by Adam Reynolds.
Mullen is about as exciting as corn flakes.

Doesn't really matter whether he stirs your loins or not anyway, he has only been in first grade for a year yet plays like a veteran, he will play for NSW at some point without a doubt. My point is they should recognize that now rather than later and give him as much representative experience as they can.

If they invest in young outstanding players like Reynolds it will pay off in the long run.

I pretty much agree with everything that guy wrote. But I don't think it is something that the Government should have to do, I think it's something that the NRL has a moral obligation to fix.

With the number of NRL players coming forward with gambling problems and the gambling fixes that have occurred and been rumored to have occurred, the NRL have a responsibility to the players and the fans to act on this issue.

Every week Barber was off the field was another embarassment for 9s Gambling promotions.

I saw the ads on Foxtel sat-night. I knew they were on but had hardly noticed them. Its very different to the Ad waterhouse has on 9. Not only does he get airtime then you have to suffered two of his Ads in commercial breaks.

Hes training kids to become Gamblers, in fact Im sure many parents have prolly laid on small bets for their kids. By 9 promoting it like they have theyve made it acceptable for families.

article on Sam Thaiday's ref shirt grab

my point for posting this is it mentions Daniel Anderson the head of refs said the call on that try was incorrect and shouldn't have been a try, which is interesting because it happens all the time

Referees boss Daniel Anderson has likened the play to a marker obstructing a defender from making a tackle, and agreed it should not have been a try.


I have seen a try scored in origin (by nsw of course) after a scrum backed down right next to the try line and qld forwards were held in the scrum and nsw scored right next to the scrum and nothing is mentioned by anyone

i don't remember, it wasn't that long ago though maybe like 2011?

i specifically remember it though, the forwards were complaining to the refs but weren't even acknowledged

Adain Sezer is out for the Tits and it's going to be a damp pitch so kicking will play a bigger role than usual.

I wouldn't be surprised if Ricky was on to something. I don't want to go all Faceman but with the level of gambling in the NRL the refs would be the most sort after for corrupting results. We know that players have been guilty of it in the past and they have far less influence over match results than a ref. Ref's don't have to make bad calls to change a game, they just have to not make the right calls to begin with which can be a very subtle thing and hard to prove.

People seem to think that refs are somehow inherently trustworthy but it's not like they are priests who you'd trust young children with. Many of them are ex-footballers themselves and are likely to glass their girlfriends at the drop of a hat.

What are peoples thoughts on the test side? If this is the side we go to the world cup with I'd be disappointed. Darius "Slow play the ball" Boyd being picked again for god knows why. He's one of 3 fullbacks picked yet he isn't even close to being in the same realm of skill as the likes of Stewart, Barber or Bowen and as a winger there are better options out there like Morris.

Also apart from the Kiwi there are no good young big men on the team which is a missed opportunity to get them some experience.

From my Sportsbet tipping...

Good afternoon and congratulations! You’re ranked equal 1st out of some 63,000 people after NRL Round 6. You’re one of 888 tipsters who equally share the $10,000 cash round prize fair ‘n square. You have won $11.26 cash.

Yes, we’d probably all agree it’s a modest prize given we’ve had the whole $10k go-off twice and two people each pocket $5,000 in the first 5-rounds, but obviously your selections were very popular amongst the 63,000 tipsters.

Better than a poke in the eye with a blunt stick, and hopefully if you like a bet, you can turn it into something a little more cheer-worthy.


Wish I had of picked 8 early on! lol I'm rich!!

Read this on the interwebs

Ben Barba is hated by most of the bulldogs players. It's started as him breaking up with his mrs, then he moved in with Josh Morris, apparently tried to hit on Morris' mrs, he kicked him out. Then the bulldogs went for a night out Barba, Pritchard and Kasiano are three names mentioned, Barba tried to hit on Kasiano or Pritchard's girlfriend on the night out.. Pritchard apparently beat up Barba pretty bad for doing so. Now Kasiano is "injured" and cannot play, truth is Kasiano is sick of Barba and his s*** and refuses to play with Barba.

i'm not really sure what they need to do about this mid season test weekend in regards to other football played, city country just seems to be kept around to help make up the number of football games for that weekend

maybe they just play the test match on sunday afternoon and that's it for the weekend...

similar to the proposal for origin games to be on there own weekend with nothing else, i have no problem with this as it is the pinnacle of rugby league pretty much - and it just becomes a complete farce for the teams that are heavily affected by origin vs the teams that aren't through this period..

Anyone else noticed the difference in reporting of the Waterhouse scandal between channel 9 and other stations? Channel 9 seem to be doing their best to make it sound like that John Singleton is just blowing off steam and the Waterhouse's are completely innocent.

I bet Waterhouse is the cause of all the injuries.

i heard Barber address this rumour, in a round about way, on Sterlo - Fox Sports.
he denied it.

I think there may have been a bustup over Barber being drunk and saying something stupid and Kasiano has dropped him. Maybe a comment about his Woman, thats a good way to get sconned.

In the lead up to that try the rabbits score at 68th minute, Burgess dropped the ball getting up to play it and both refs missed it, burgess even gave it away by looking at the ref.

I think you will find gallen very dodgey for origin, he said he heard a click in his knee when he injured it so i'd be surprised if they weren't just covering up the fact it is more serious than they want to let on.

You cant carry an injury into Origin.
its a much faster game than Club Footy.

They could maybe rotate him, 20mins a half but I think it would be better to replace him. If he broke down after 10mins that puts NSW at a big disadvantage.

Carney was good again last night.
I dunno if Maloney will get the nod.
It would suck to think just because hes a regular on the Footy Show now that he'd get the job.

In other sports news...
Apparantly 9 is in real danger of losing the Cricket.
They wont telecast the Domestic Comp like the Big Bash but TEN says they will.
I hope TEN shows it on HD - FU 9

Speaking of the Footy show, anyone see Beau Ryan get knocked the f*** out from a shoulder charge that didn't get put on report and then alternatively in the Cowboys v Rabbits game one of the Sims brothers got put on report for tripping over another player.

One was a f*****g ridiculous thing to penalise and the other should have been a clear cut penalty yet it went the other way around.

I also think the Cowboys were robbed two tries by the video ref last night. I thought they were doing a better job than last year but now I'm not so sure.

not really.. no - considering how badly nsw need to win i'd find it even more unlikely that this makes any difference than I already would have normally

tbh I wouldn't be surprised if Maloney got it simply for being a good player, he has been consistently good for a long time. unfortunately it was shrouded when he was in nz by being surrounded by a loser team. his first season away from them with a half decent team and he is in the mix origin

I think the cowboys were robbed of at least one try due to not enough evidence to go against the refs initial call of try and I think south's were given a try when there wasn't enough evidence to go against the refs original call of no try - the reffing last night was pretty shady all round, though the cowboys had a s*** load of chances

Losing to Parra is like paying $79 for a steak that wasnt cooked properly.

The broncos sucked but lets be honest.
The Ref was a wanker that made some bizare calls that one side had to get the better of and that side was Parramatta.

The FA Cup is on right now on SBS.
Its on SBS 1 in SD and SBS HD.
How is it SBS can show Sport in HD but 9 refuses to do it >?

9 the home of SD and no longer the home of Cricket.

Probably the only time Phil Gould will beat a team with Smith, Slater and Cronk this year though.

Tits were robbed a try by the video ref, Dragons scored a try shortly after benefiting from a clear penalty that wasn't called. Soward was probably upset that they only lost by 1 point.

This seems to be the worst round so far with regards to ref performance.

There were two or three bad high calls, I think the only one that was an actual high shot in replay was the one that got Bird sin binned.

Then by some f*****g miracle the refs go on to not call two actual high shots in succession by the Titans.

The knee drop by Dave Taylor wasn't a penalty, the "markers not square" call after the Broncos had lost the ball was bulls***, some of those 5th tackle penalties were bulls***, especially the first one. Out of the 9 or so penalties only about 3 were valid.

Titans are defending terribly and their kicking has been s*** but that doesn't excuse the bad reffing we've been seeing.

I reckon Hoffman is going to be stuck on the wing the rest of his career, victim of his own success.

Just because the guys didn't go down hurt doesn't mean it isn't a high shot. The titans came in with a succession of tackles around that area so then the refs are looking for it and the titans delivered. Taylor got the s**** and was on a mission to hurt someone.

The markers not square was an advantage played which was why it was late

SECTION 12 THE SCRUM

2.
Formation of Scrum To form a scrum not more than three forwards of either team shall interlock arms and heads and create a clear tunnel at right angles to the touch line. The forward in the centre of a front row (i.e. the hooker) shall bind with his arms over the shoulders of the two supporting forwards. Not more than two second row forwards on each team shall pack behind their respective front rows by interlocking arms and placing their heads in the two spaces between the hooker and his front row forwards. The loose forward of each team shall pack behind his second row forwards by placing his head in the space between them. All forwards must pack with their bodies and legs at right angles to the tunnel and the upper parts of their bodies horizontal. Once the ball has been put in the scrum, no other player can lend his weight to it.

yes but the scrum was not ready to play.
they may have formed the scrum but technically there was no halfback so the scrum was incomplete, this is also because Storm had the feed so they werent ready to play.

I think the Ref blew time off but didnt realise the error then its was too late anyway.
not 100% certain but thats what i think happened.

Free TV Australia, which represents all of Australia's commercial free-to-air television licensees, wants commentators and their guests to be prohibited from promoting live odds during a game, as well as for 30 minutes before and after the match.

A Brisbane woman has contacted Queensland police alleging she was physically assaulted by Te'o in the presence of fellow NRL players Corey Norman and Darius Boyd.

News Limited can reveal Norman, the Broncos fullback, made a 000 emergency call after the alleged incident, which left the woman with a black eye and facial injuries.

The woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has told police she was punched by Te'o. On Monday, she conducted a tell-all interview with Channel Nine, which will be aired tonight.

In the interview, the woman claims: "I was laying in the hallway with blood everywhere ... I could have been dead for all they know."

I hope this has been through the courts and players found guilty before they air this s***.

I saw that Ralph Harris one they had the other night and you kind of wonder why it's being aired on national TV instead of being done through the proper legal channels because surely it will make it 10x harder to do officially if it's played out in the media. If it's true and they have been found guilty then fair enough but if you air this s*** beforehand surely there are serious defamation consequences.

Then again, responsibility isn't part of channel 9's curriculum, that's why law makers have to step in and tell them to stop encouraging problem gambling.

The way he played last week he looked like a lazy Union back.

You see the interview on the Footy Show ?
I suspect he wont see out the season, might develop another "injury"
He sounded pretty cut about becoming Benchy.

Broncos v Dogs is a tough one, I'm leaning towards dogs.

Although Dogs got thrashed last week they had a few solid weeks previous and I think they have a better chance of bouncing back at home. Neither side has their preferred goal kicker but Broncos are also missing Reed who has been a good scorer and even though Hodges is "back" he is apparently not 100% and is facing off against Josh Morris who has experience in shutting him down.

The one I'm most unsure about is Panthers v Dragons, Dragons are usually pretty tough at home and it looks like Dugan might just be the key to them scoring points. On the other hand Panthers have been surprisingly good the last 3 or 4 rounds.

2 f*****g tips correct this week!!! :(


loved the game tonight though, tipped Souths but was happy for the Sharks to win


EDIT: Yep loved Ricky Stuarts reaction too, I've always said he was an overrated coach, he inherited a team from Gus Gould at the Rooters and won a comp, did sweet f*** all at Sharks

he was best suited to NSW, he can motivate etc but as a club coach I don't rate him

Yep no SOO players so basically Cowboys, Titans, Broncos, Rabbitohs and to a lesser extent, Knights and Dragons will be short handed. Dogs might lose Reynolds but they'd be silly to pick him over Sutton IMO.

Broncos and Cowboys are the biggest affected. Titans lose three forwards but have players that can cover, Rabbitohs lose Sutton(possibly), Inglis and McQueen which is pretty bad but if Sutton stays they won't have to adjust too much.

I don't think the other teams will feel much impact with the one or two players they lose.

Yeah I don't see the worn out Broncos beating the rested Raiders at home.

Looking ahead at the Origin weeks where some teams will be without key players. Some teams get it much easier than others it seems. All Qld teams, including Storm will play 2 of the 3 weeks compared to most of the Sydney teams getting away with 1 week.

I realise it's probably a luck of the draw kind of thing but you'd think they would try to get spread it out a bit better. Warriors only play one game in that period, as do the Tigers and Panthers, none of whom supply Origin players.

Throw a punch = 10 mins in the sin bin.
This is going to be a shemozzle.
Often punches are thrown when the ref cant see it.
The video umpire is going to be contacting the ref to tell him that a punch was thrown. A team with 12 men for 10 mins is likely to lose a game.

This is going to be a very bad move especially in big games where one forward pack attempts to monster its opponents out of the game early on. You are also going to get more Nate Myles stuff where players will do more niggly stuff to draw a punch.

An instantaneous punch in relation to some offensive play in a tackle is very different to what Gallan did, he waited til after the event then decided to throw punches. Its going to ruin games, especially in Origin.

Agreed. I have heard heaps of people blaming Reynolds for milking it. Besides the lifting of 1 leg, you can clearly see Stewart using his leg to take of Reynolds other leg, causing the bad tackle. Foran is a complete idiot with his loud mouth. He regularly gets away with too much chat at the ref and got caught this time.

*Disclaimer: I backed Manly and has hoping they would win, but there ill discipline cost them the game in the end and I am happy to admit it.

Yeh took our oldest along to watch it, was a good show and Cairns all but packed out Barlow Park (over 16k, capacity 17ish) so looks like the Bunnie's travelling home game thing might have legs, we'll be back for next year's game.

Crowd got behind them too which was nice, was worried the locals would get tribal and go for the QLD side, but they really appreciated someone bringing an NRL premiership game to North Queensland. Its a real shame that the first game for points in Cairns wasn't a home game for the Cowboys...

Sydney weather has hammered my tipping this week. Panthers beating Dragons is a fair cop Dragons have been on the up and Panthers on the fall the last couple of games but Panthers are the better side. Tigers and Knights had no right beating the teams they did, especially as well as they did.

Losing Jamal will be a big blow for the Titans, wonder if we might see a top 8 without any Queensland teams this year. The field is still pretty compact at the moment so anything could happen but Origin season still isn't over, it will continue to do the Qld teams no favors.

What a hiding from a side beaten last week by the Tigers.

What really disturbs me about this current season, and ive mentioned it before, is the amount of Zero scorelines. To me that's sides giving up and I think the solution is to copy Union and have bonus points.
Id also like to see sides that don't score a try lose premiership points.
I actually fell asleep near the end of the game. LOL

Isnt that the 2nd Zero for the Broncos this year ?

Griffin isn't the weakest link, peter wallace is the weakest link he is the most useless half in the game. If the aim of the game for a number 7 was to get tackled with the ball in hand - he would be leading the comp and his kicking game is f***ed

That game was so infuriating to watch how many points the broncos could have had, the disallowed try hurt them badly

Who was that new commentator during the Broncos match? He kept calling everyone Gillet and only got it right half the time. Looks like they may have lost Jack Reed for the season.

I think this NRL season is already over for Qld, Titans are slipping, Broncos are stagnating and even if the Cowboys pull off a late surge they would have to be near perfect for a chance at the 8.

What's up with Thurston at the Cowboys? Considering he has what some say is one of the best forward packs in the game (Australian reps) he plays some ordinary football for the Cowboys. Wasn't just that game, I've seen some others and he's just doing nothing great for them.

The Cowboys run to the finals has a lot of home games though so that can only be good.

Isn't he topping the stats in forcing restarts still?

Cowboys are an example that one play maker can not carry a team, Bowen has been dealing with injury pretty much all season, Lui who is supposed to be setting up a new combination with Thurston has been in and out as well. Not sure who their number 9 is but James Segeyaro going to Penrith was also a big loss for them.

The problem is Lui hasn't found any real consistency at the Cowboys yet which means sides can just pile all the pressure on Thurston to keep him contained.

Yeah, Cowboys are still leading the stats in forced restarts.

It could just be this year, I've never watched him really in other seasons. He has won two Dally M's so I'm not saying he's crap. Just this year I figured that the Cowboys would be a much bigger force. We'll have to see their run to the finals, they've got a lot of home games just like the Raiders. It's surprising he hasn't been scrutinised like Benji except Benji had an injury to deal with. I guess Benji has better supporting players? (Farah as an example).

aaron payne retired last year, bowen is struggling again - those 3 together used to terrorise teams

now JT is left on his own without another half/someone else to run plays with that is even a quarter as good

the cowboys lost both of their hookers at the start of this year with Aaron Payne retiring after last year and James Segyaro going to the panthers at the end last year as well - they have a massive hole to fill here and there isn't anyone doing the job properly at the moment

JT is all they have at the moment and 1 half can't make up for 4 key positions no matter how good he is

Broncos are done for the year, they are using the rest of the season to try and work something out for next year.

Peter Wallace is gone, if they cut Prince as well then they will go from a team with 4 halves to a team with 1.

Good old Brothers back hey. I used to roam around down there when I was a kid living at Wilston.

Are they going to have a team again?

I want the Broncs to sign Shaun Johnson and Todd Carney, winning halves combo right there.

yeah they are aiming for an NRL license.
This is like a first step towards a 2nd Brisbane team.
I think the broncos should move out towards the south side of Brisbane and let a 2nd club here take over the northern side.
Would create a North Vs South rivalry.

Brothers has a very distinguished history in QLD Rugby League.
I don't like their chances but money talks and they have some serious backing.

haha another s*** suggestion brought to by Facey - i think it will be a cold day in hell before the broncos do anything to accommodate a second brisbane team, like f*** i'd support another brisbane team. cowboys would still be my second team.

wallace is f*****g useless, he has had a couple of years now to really take this team by the balls and lead it as a start half back and he hasn't done that because he is an average player on his best day that was made to look good by playing inside one of the best 5/8ths ever

all i see him do these days is mostly get tackled with the ball (seriously there has to be a stat around somewhere for half backs tackled with the ball, he would have to be leading it by far) and put in s*** kicks

and corey norman needed to be pulled from the field and never given a broncos jersey again when he didn't jump on that ball kicked in goal from the tigers a few weeks ago, instead ran along beside it waving at it with his hand - no heart

this season is gone for the broncos, whatev - they are signing up big now but we are yet to see the big signing/s for next year

Wallace tries hard but hes never been the same since he lost that testicle.
Wallace ends up being halfback + 5/8 coz Brisbane is a team of utility players with very little specialist players.

Prince still has some skills but you can see him fade as the game does on. Hes had a lot of surgeries and Id say the body is starting to give out. Some of the Broncos appeared to have put the cue in the rack early this season. the Broncos that played Origin had very good performances that don't seem to show up in Club footy.

The only thing that has worked for the Broncos in attack all season has been the Prince/Norman/Hoffman combination. Next year Yow Yea will be back but I don't think Hoffman is a ball playing fullback that can handle the role that Norman played and personally I think he has played his best football on the wing and would like to see him and Yow Yea making a strike on either side of the field.

There's been rumours of Benny Barba wanting to move north as well as Cam Smith. I think Barba is still contracted until the end of 2015 and Smith is 2014 so even if they do chase them there is still the question of what to do next year. They will also need to sign a new half by that time since if Prince plays next year I doubt they will renew the contract further (Barba could potentially fill that role).

There is also talk about K*** making a return.

A lot of big name players possibly available over the next couple of years but that still means next year will be tough for the Broncos.

Milford's dad had a heart attack 18 months ago, only reason he will go back is because of that. He's already said he got over the home sickness. Bronco's just looking to grab some talent and they'll probably get it because the Bronco's are the only team in town up there.

Broncos had the opportunity when he was much younger but did nothing.

He did resign a contract with the Raiders but has a clause about family illness. He's great at attacking, still a little suspect under the high ball. He's like Ben Barba but at a discounted rate if anything. I still like him as an interchange player for the moment. Can't fault him too much though.

There were some terrible decisions made by Newcastle at the end of that game. Taking off their goal kicker and not even bringing him back out during golden point and then being practically meters from the try line and not taking the field goal when it was offered.

I don't think either team can do much with 1 point at this end of the season.

The ex-head of Parramatta poured a jug of beer over the current head of Parramatta a few weeks ago. Parramatta is not just the NRL town bike, off the field the Club is killing itself.

I think its time Parramatta had its license pulled and given to a new Club outside Sydney like Brisbane Brothers.
10 losses in a row for Parra they are an embarrassment to the Comp.

Souths were abysmal last night.
The Cowboys dropped the ball several times and still thrashed them.
Its very hard to win all season, eventually things like injuries happen.
Still theres plenty of time for them to get players fresh for the finals.
bit of a worry watching them last night though.

He's too much of a defensive liability to play fullback for the Broncos though, I'm guessing he will be expected to partner with Hunt in the halves. It is a bit suspicious that the Broncos told their two halves they won't be needed next year without having someone inline for the position, no doubt the club has done as much to bring about this decision as his fathers illness.

I don't see it happening, they might have an amazingly soft run going into the finals but even winning every game might not be enough. Warriors last 4 games are about the same level as the Broncos, Titans and Raiders have it tough but unlike the Broncos could actually beat a competent side if they get their s*** together.

I don't think they are a chance anyway since they could barely beat the Dragons who had absolutely nothing to play for. That said, the reffing was pretty one sided in that game.

He doesn't need to get his hand on it. Downward pressure with any part of the torso or hands or arms on a loose ball is a try.

Barba will get a bigger contract than what he has at the Bulldogs, if he gets a ridiculously big contract though that would be a sign of some shady dealings to encourage him to seek a release as the competition north of the border isn't exactly fierce at the moment with the Cowboys having very little room in their cap and the Titans probably more interested in Milford than Barba.

Looks like it's between the Cowboys and Warriors for 8th spot based on their last couple of games. I completely wrote the Cowboys off after they lost to the Broncos a few weeks ago but they haven't lost since and have a really good for and against.

Not sure it really matters who makes the top 8 though since no one can really touch the top 4.

Newcastle's Kade Snowden is sent off for a dangerous shoulder charge late in the second half against the Cowboys.



Sonny Bill Williams shoulder charge vs Willie Mason earlier in the year which doesn't get him sent off.

you're just another douchebag who can't handle a rebuilding era, basically

so good, f*** off because we don't need fakers like you

the broncos have been stupidly lucky to have the caliber of elite players playing for them since the clubs inception unfortunately we don't have another wally lewis, alan langer or darren lockyer to step in and take up the spot that lockyer left

not to mention some of the other freakish talent they have had in other positions through the years

What are peoples opinions on the Sharks?

It was bit of a disgrace when Melbourne had to play a season for no points so I kind of think they need to force a resolution to the ASADA investigation before it spoils the finals season. The last I read, they had uncovered a secrete fund that they were using the pay Paul Gallen off the books with.

You wont admit the Broncos have been embarrassing because they flat out suck like paramatta.
You want to believe the Aussie Cricket team is rebuilding too.
This is professional Sport not Park Footy/Cricket.

I guess I just have higher standards than you.

Prince retires, Walker is dumped
replaced by who ?
Coach has lost the plot, the players don't care, and now we got no halves for next year. Just about every Bronco has been in the halves this year then they win a game and suddenly they've found the magical combination only to lose the following week.

Back to Back worst two seasons ever.
Like I said, I expect more from a highly professional Club like the Broncos.

The Broncos situation isn't really about Lockyer anymore. The problem IMO was that they paired Prince with Wallace once they signed him instead of Norman. They were certainly lacking someone to guide them around the field and needed a bit of experience but Wallace had done his apprenticeship under Lockyer and didn't really show much for it so pairing him with Prince wasn't going to do much.

On the other hand Norman was the young player that benefited the most from working with Prince, they were starting to combine really well towards the end but because he had been placed in at Fullback he obviously didn't think his future was secure at the Broncos and took a better offer at the worst club in the competition.

No one has stepped up and fill that positon, losing lockyer just exposed wallace for how bad he actually is GL with that one penrith

Norman needed more time there he had his moments of brilliance but was mostly pretty bad against any team with defence that was moving up on him. Possibly also a reflection of how bad the forward pack was going towards the end of last year.

Ben hunt is looking the goods imo he looks like a half when he has the ball and creates a bit of doubt in the mind of the opposition where as wallace was just good for gettjng pounded with the ball.

Not really that fussed on this barba signing he is pretty patchy witu form and we need a half more than anything else right now

I'm not much of a one team supporter. I don't give much of a s*** about history which is where most of the hardcore team supporters live. No one would turn up to an Eels game otherwise.

I do tend to support Qld teams whenever possible and for some reason I don't particularly like the Roosters so I'm probably going to be a Bunnies fan come finals time.

Be good to see the Cowboys continue with their form into the finals, I don't think the ladder is going to change at this stage, very unlikely either the Knights or Cowboys will lose their matches next week.

Yeah I thought we were going to be watching a prequel to the finals but now I'm not so sure. With Manly's form at the moment they would have beaten both sides easily and Melbourne probably would have handled them as well. Roosters recovered but the Rabbitohs didn't, so many bad last tackle options and that center seemed to be making a mistake every time he got near the ball.

I also really like seeing Pierce and Malloney lose so I felt that game was pretty disappointing all round.

Yeah, unbelievable. That's twice in two years for the cowboys bowing out of the finals on dodgy ref calls.

Are the refs untouchable? Players face disciplinary action in the judiciary if they f*** up badly on the field, when the refs f*** up so badly surely they themselves are the ones that need to get put on report.

I'd hate for league to have to implement some sort of DRS system and slow the game down, but there's a lot of disappointed NQ fans out there on the basis of a howler.

What about the Roosters v Manly game, f*****g intense!

We (Manly) at times had nothing in attack, no idea how to penetrate, not ideal! But it was just tense and physical battle!

Yeah they need to sack someone over the Cowboys game that is for sure.

I think Manly just did a really good job of forging the Roosters for finals footy, unfortunately. They were in pretty good form and controlled the game but couldn't crack them which will only strengthen the Roosters for the last couple of matches. Of course their attack would have been marginally better with Brett Stewart in the side.

They will be playing the Rabbitohs in a couple of weeks for sure and I'm not sure the Rabbitohs have the steel to whether the same kind of onslaught that the Roosters survived.

Manly were down 2 players through injury.
That was one of the best games of the year.
In the modern attacking game 4-0 in a Final is tight stuff.

I hate Manly but they are a big game side.
I wouldn't want to be playing them one game out from the big'un

Still think its 1 vs 2
It would ruin the final if it wasn't Roosters V Rabbitohs.
Game of the Decade

Man that sucked for the Cowboys, an extra tackle try and a video ref decision to lose(Not Loose) the match.
Carney clearly wasn't fit, what a gutsy effort to stay out there.

Happy the Cowboys didn't make it. F*** QLD teams and f*** Thurston. Super-stoked Melbourne were beaten. They are the true cheaters.

Hopefully the Knights make it through. I am a bitter, battered old housewife when it comes to NRL. Australia aren't even world champs.

What a battle, can't see Manly winning next week though. Would be a minor miracle if they do. Hope they provide a good game next week.

I thought Tafua dropped that though, had no control and that's what you're meant to have.

If Morris hadn't pulled Ballin, Gallen doesn't score anyway. Ballin would either put huge pressure on Gallen (remember the ball was sitting there for 2 - 3 seconds) or Morris picks up the ball and we have an entirely differently play where Gallen doesn't receive the ball. So I don't think he costs them the game.

You could also argue that Beau Ryan's pick up in goal when the ball was going out of play gave Manly another set which they end up scoring off cost them the game as well.

Now we'll see tomorrow's game and if it's a repeat of last year where the top 4 were the last 4 standing!

Was a good game, Cronulla bombed it as per usual by trying to score off one set of six towards the end there instead of trying to roll some consecutive sets. The shape Manly were in at the time that's all that really saved them, Cronulla's impatience and inexperience in the halves.
Not taking anything away from Manly though, f*** they dug deep at the end there.

The harshest call of the game had to be when the guy got knocked out with an apparent fractured jaw and the ref ruled he lost the ball.

Not sure it it's ok to reward a team for knocking a player out regardless of the circumstances.
Slater shoulder charge in goal, a warning.
He shouldn't have even been given a warning, it's an embarrassment to the game and prevents players from properly defending their try line. The shoulder charge rule was to stop high impact shoulder contact with the head, it was not created to stop fullbacks and wingers from shoving players into touch on the goal line.

I would love nothing more than to see the Knights beat Roosters it's pretty unlikely though. They are a chance on the edges but I just don't see their mid holding, the Roosters have a lot of size and are well rested and IMO will simply overwhelm the Knights down the middle.

Yeah I know, I'm not saying the other team should have been penalised, just that the Storm should have been allowed to have another player play the ball like I've seen them do in other games during similar situations.

It wasn't a call that made a difference to the game, I just think penalising someone for being knocked da f*** out is pretty harsh.

lol @ the no try to Burgess at the end. If it was the same result last week, would Manly have gone through? :O

Incredible how Souths lost that, Glenn Stewart was the cause for all of Souths points. High tackle for two points, missed tackle on Sutton for the try and then the knock on which resulted in a try. All in the first 12 minutes! He comes back and gets the assist for Manly's first points though. Can't see him missing next week's game though, think he'll be cleared.

Wolfman's incredible try, Inglis couldn't stop him!

Glenn Stewart didn't play Origin coz he was injured early on and was I think a big loss for NSW.
Brett Stewart has been away injured for a while and came back this week.
Manly are tough to beat with those two on the field and you cant leave out Lyon, what if he played Origin ?

I hate Manly almost as much as Melbourne but you have to admit that Club lifts like no other team, they almost have the spirit of QLD in them (they should after all the Queenslanders that have played for them).

I dunno, how do you blow a 14 - 0 lead in a Final ?

Cronk had a pretty cracking first half of the season, after that though..average. He also scored 2 points in the last game of the year despite missing what was about 5 or so field goals, I guess he did kick the winning one in the end! He was pretty lucky that other players were injured throughout the year (Carney injured the last 2 rounds). Either way though, he's a good player! Here's the Dally M Team...

The difference in the game came down to the difference between Tupou and Williams IMO. Williams just couldn't defend against him. That on top of Sonny Bill deciding to play in the second half pretty much put the nail in the coffin.

DCE definitely deserved the CC medal though, head and shoulders above Pearce and Maloney (although Maloney's goal kicking was leathal) and Sonny Bill was too quiet in the first half.

I don't get the excitement about the penalty try.

It seemed pretty obvious he would have scored without interference and the alternative was a penalty right on the Roosters try line with a man in the bin for 10 minutes.

Complaining about the forward pass is just as bad, the refs can't magic themselves in line with a fast moving line break to pick up a minor forward pass that had it had gone backwards would have netted the same result.

End of the day the Roosters were the better team and what minor errors the refs made wouldn't change that one way or the other.

Reading into it too much, more than likely he just missed her with everything else that is going on (like being a winner). Anyway, he's most definitely going to Union.

SBW announces he is available after the team has been announced lol

After a few tough seasons topped with an amazing one with the boys at the Roosters, I was faced with the opportunity to have a long awaited break and go on holiday with my family.

Without thinking the whole situation through thoroughly, I eagerly jumped at the chance to chill out and rest. After having some time to really think about how much representing my country means to me, I decided to then put my name forward for selection.

Now I know the squads already picked and I understand if I can't be apart of it, but I'm here and ready to help the brothers if they want me.

who do you dump to bring in SBW ?
not really fair to one of those players.
maybe one will 'develop' an injury.

Considering the guy they dropped played his first full (i think) season this year for the storm after playing under 21's last year, he would probably be bummed but it isn't like they stepping a veteran aside

First Test is next Sunday Morning

New Zealand has good side.
England are never gonna beat Australia, they need a combined Great Britain side.

looks like 7mate is showing the opening ceremony first.
that Rugby League Planet is a good site.

on the bottom right of the screen on the front page is a list of International fixtures. Rugby League is played in a lot more places than I thought.

Its on again today at 3.35 on 7mate.
I think its only the game this time.

I didn't see the game last night, how did Australia go ?
Surprised the Pommies scored that many points.
Did Bird and Burgess go at it ?

It was a good game, Australia started off really bad but after 20 minutes got back into the groove. England never gave up which made it a good game to watch.

Apparently all the players that didn't play last night will be in the next game against Fiji. It will be interesting to see who sits out, I think they will keep their core structure though which I think is a little unfortunate. I'd love to see DCE play in place of Cronk and Inglis get a run at fullback.

yeah Vossy !

I thought that was the best England side Ive seen play.
The backs were really sharp and i thought that winger and the fullback had big games. Though it might have been because the England forwards were really good.
In most Eng V AUS games the fitness of the NRL players usually means the Aussies run over the top in the last 15 mins but that didn't happen.

If it wasn't for some poor discipline from the forwards the Poms could have won that. After years of widening the gap its looks like the Poms are finally wielding Australia back in. Good for the game.

I though Thurston and Cronk were kind of flat in the halves but maybe the Aussie forwards were also a bit flat. I think Cherry-Evans should move into the halves with Thurston and Cronk off the bench. Slater was pretty ordinary too.

I thought Burgess scored that try, it was poor angle for the video ref and the ref was close enough to call it.
