#2996452 James Roby's stats

Posted by Tonka on 16 September 2014 - 08:29 AM

Yep - you can't just credit one-on-one tackles if you think about it.

 

But I think being "involved in" 65 tackles speaks for itself.




#2996443 James Roby's stats

Posted by Tonka on 16 September 2014 - 08:20 AM

I have just read James Roby's stats for the Huddersfield game (and his ranking in the team). 

 

Tackles - 65 (1st)

Carries - 27 (1st)

Metres - 184 (1st)

Offloads - 2 (joint 1st)

Kicks - 5 (2nd)

Passes - 105 (1st)

 

Only negatives are 2 missed tackles and 1 penalty conceded (shame on him). 

 

I think the tackles equal Steele Retchless's efforts from (1997?), which I believe are still the record.

 

You might argue that he of course gets more passes away as hooker - and indeed that stats aren't everything - but has anyone seen these beaten?

How dare someone satirise our sport for being M62 corridor WHICH IT CLEARLY ISN'T.

Steve Redgrave.  Now that would get bums on seats.  Him and Dwaine Chambers.




#2885187 Should NSW and QLD be standalone international sides in RL?

Posted by Tonka on 21 February 2014 - 10:51 AM

Nope.

 

That was easy - keep em coming.

 

Monkey tennis, etc...




#2882316 Sam Burgess (merged threads)

Posted by Tonka on 17 February 2014 - 11:06 AM

I really wish he wasn't going for all the reasons others have already articulated.

 

One thing I do wonder though is that as well as the immediate pay packet (which may not be that much more than at Souths) being a (potential) dual code international gives him more chance of career longevity in the sport beyond his playing days i.e. there are a limited number of coaching and media jobs in RL but many many more if you have expertise in league and union.

And all this say it to my face rubbish.

 

Like the f*cking playground.

It seems you can't ask rugby league fans anything without getting into a debate about restructuring...

There are many man-made mysteries that cannot be explained away: Stonehenge, the Atacama Desert Symbols, and the fact this thread has reached 8 pages, amongst them.

 

I thought that myself, although here I am again, helping it through its 9th...

#2823724 Should an gridiron pass be introduced in rl.. Yes or no.. If no how come.

Posted by Tonka on 01 November 2013 - 12:55 PM

It would be revolutionary if they bolted a basketball hoop onto the front of the cross bar and you got 3 points for chucking the ball through it (or a thousand for drop goaling it through).  But it isn't a good idea.




#2785661 Stevo

Posted by Tonka on 09 September 2013 - 12:36 PM

I was standing next to him at the bar at the West Riding Refreshment Rooms in Dewsbury on Friday (at least it looked a lot like him)  and he was talking about retirement - whether his own or someone else's I couldn't say.

 

A man who may or may not have been Stevo was talking about his or someone else's retirement...

I feel that the media has badly let itself down here by failing to take full advantage of the puns available.




#2773575 New England Shirt

Posted by Tonka on 23 August 2013 - 09:05 AM

East London Mike's shirts are ace. I'd put him in charge of kit design for the World Cup.

It is a shame the badge is so noddy, but it's not ELM's fault.
