In Topic: Roosters versus Panthers

Yesterday, 08:55 PM

Personally i didn't think the panthers v roosters was a particularly good game at all. Great finish, with the final 15-20mins edge of the seat stuff, but for most part I thought it was pretty clumsy stuff from both teams, with the panthers especially out of sorts in attack and a bit nervous in defence.

The second Whare try was just a wonder to watch, truly amazing from Zelezniak.

Regarding Ray Warren, I used to think he was great in commentary, but the last couple of seasons his ignorance of certain aspects of RL (namely international RL and everything outside the NRL) and at times arrogance in calling the game have left me starting to dislike his commentary. Much prefer Vossy and Joel Caine these days.

Valentine Holmes been named in both the kiwi's and Junior Kangaroo's squads.. Here we go again..


In Topic: Gareth Hock to leave Salford?

Don't think Hock is ever gonna mature, anyone who takes him on will have to take the rough with the smooth. If it was an NRL team i think we'd have heard a few names by now.


In Topic: World Club Series 2015 (merged threads)

03 September 2014 - 06:34 AM

The fact that its Souths and Brisbane being mentioned suggests to me their two of only a handful of NRL clubs who would even want to play International clubs games, so i'm glad its them. At least they'll do their bit.

If/when a comp like this shows signs of making any money then we'll see al the NRL clubs moaning about not being involved. Essentially its going to be the WCC as we know it, 1st v 1st and two other games involving NRL and SL opposition, but under the banner of a WCC. Three games involving NRL teams against SL teams sounds good to me. Hope they do something special like a double header for the first two games, and maybe even something crazy like playing them on a Saturday night at the Olympic stadium, Stratford!

The only completely ridiculous part is the one game being played when the Aussies host it.
