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.

Interesting article about the Ipswich Jets and their style of play on the Sydney Telegraph website. I have read it elsewhere, but the article is behind a paywall for me, but I found this from the Love Rugby League site which gives the gist of the article;-

In Topic: Cherry-Evans backflips on Titans deal

03 June 2015 - 10:20 AM

Can't believe DCE has actually said his 'change of heart' only occurred in the last 48 hours!!! He's played the system to the hilt, but his comments throughout the saga have done him no favours at all.

 

As G says, the Titans now have a big part of the salary cap to fill, so you'd like to think the Titans would use that to strengthen the whole team. There's gaps in the forwards to fill, not just the halves. 

 

As for Manly, well their eggs are all now very firmly all in DCE's basket. It's a risky strategy putting so much of the cap on one player. 

 

Should be interesting in Round 18 though - Manly play the Titans on the Gold Coast.

It was Sam Mataora. Less said about Tetevano the better...
