Terrible news. Greg played in the first game of RL I ever saw at Wilderspool. Great player. Thoughts go out to his family. 

 

RIP Greg.

#2992273 Holden Cup on Premier

Posted by thirteenthman on 10 September 2014 - 01:14 PM

Just noticed that Premier Sports are showing live coverage of the Holden Cup U20s Finals series starting on Friday morning at 8am. Tigers v Bunnies on Friday and then Knights v Dragons and Roosters v Warriors on Saturday morning.

 

Broncos v Eels was also going to be shown, but it's now being played at the same time as the Roosters v Panthers NRL game, so Premier presumably aren't showing it.

#2978426 Storm last week Eels this

Posted by thirteenthman on 16 August 2014 - 04:42 PM

That 40/20 rule with the 'quick' restart is pointless. Hardly anyone ever manages to actually get a quick restart out of it, and as Phil Gould said in commentary, what exactly was wrong with having a scrum? But blaming a ball boy for throwing the ball to the player instead of placing the ball on the ground is just a joke.

#2972470 Winning Melbourne

Posted by thirteenthman on 06 August 2014 - 04:26 PM

I think all the AFL teams in Melbourne play their games out of 2 grounds, which I believe are pretty central, which gives them an advantage. In Sydney, I thought the SFS was a good ground for RL, but there's no trains out that way. As LRL says, ANZ is just too big for most of the games they play there. The suburban grounds I saw left a fair bit to be desired.

 

I also think the NRL are also still too much tied down by the TV contract. Monday night games are a good example. TV loves them but the crowds are generally poor. The AFL tried Sunday night games this year for TV, and after a 'disappointing' crowd of 40,000 they canned them. Even if the NRL wanted to change time slots, they can't.
