In Topic: Round 20 Match Threads -*** SPOILERS likely ... yes... guaranteed ***

27 July 2015 - 04:54 PM

Panthers v Raiders was probably the highlight of what was a pretty ordinary round of games. There's some pretty poor sides down the bottom of the ladder right now.

 

Is it my imagination or are Channel 9 getting the worst games each week? The sound of Phil Gould moaning on each week is getting more boring than some of the games they've been calling recently. At the least the guys on Fox sound like they're enjoying the matches. 

 

And it was a little ironic hearing Gus Gould doing his "they love their Sunday afternoon footy" routine at Belmore yesterday. It's just a pity a few more supporters of Gould's own club Penrith don't share his view given the scratchy crowd at Pepper Stadium yesterday.

He's looking to make the Kiwi tour in November and none too happy about being linked with the Scots.

Johns confirms that he thinks Sandow is coming to Warrington.


In Topic: Frank Pritchard and Krisnan Inu to Hull FC?

12 June 2015 - 01:05 PM

My only real memory of Inu is from the 2012 NRL GF when he clattered a Storm lad with a great hit and Ray Warren came out with the cracking soundbite "How do you do? I'm Krisnan Inu!!!!" Quality telly. Think he was integral in the build-up to the Graham ear bite on Slater as well. Bit of a stirrer.

 

By the next season he'd fallen out with Hasler and I don't think played a minute.

 

 

In 2013 he played most of the year (I think he got a fairly lengthy ban so missed a few), but was dropped for their only finals match at the end of the season. Even in 2014 when he was seemingly out of favour again, he managed to get back in the team mid season before he departed for the other side.

 

Fantastic player on his day, but when he loses form he does appear to struggle to get it back. If he starts off well at a new club, he could prove a very smart buy. My only surprise is how long he's stuck it out in Union. 


In Topic: Salford V Catalans Free entry

Huddersfield did this about 6 or so years ago when they played Catalans and got a very good crowd in for it. It was the game where the Chairman did his 'big announcement' at half time of the cheap season tickets for the following season.
