  1. What do you expect with four players missing and yet they have played some good footy.
  2. Marwan Koukash

    A rare breed of editor who says it as he sees it.In other words speaks the truth.
  3. How anyone could even think of changing the name of our great game is beyond me.Nothing comes up when you think about name change.Anyway, I've just signed the petition.
  4. Wakey friendly

    Keeping pretty good Bob,no complaints in that dept, hope your the same.Having a few problems with attachments on this site.
  5. New York, Boston and Hamilton in 2019

    Les there are an abundance of players in PNG that would jump at the chance to play in the States.
  6. Wakey friendly

    Sorry to hear of the passing of Jack Perry.Condolences to his family.I have fond memories of Jack.Played on the wing, slightly built but excellent wingman , also great goal kicker.The Dogs had a great team in those days and the majority were Batley lads.The place abounded with local teams in those days.
  7. The Aussies can't even run an event in their own country, another half hearted attempt in Hawaii will be a disaster
  8. If this game is as well supported as the recent WC it will be a financial disaster.
  9. RL 2017

    They really haven't put much in, in the way development Pom, in fact they are rope around the neck of it.They could be doing so much.
  10. RL 2017

    Well summed up Ray.Plenty of activity in Europe and the Americas,the future for the game in those places looks good. The big draw back like you say is the Aussies, their club games are not that well attended and that's a worry.They appear to be dependent on TV money.They made a half hearted attempt with the recent WC which was dissapointing. Better to cut them adrift and leave them to it.
  11. Todays game

    Thanks Bob for the highlights ,looked to be a lot at the game.Any idea of the gate and is it shared?
  12. Christmas Greetings.

    To all at the Mount and their families and here's to a successful season.
  13. Emerging Blues squad announced

    If only the WC had received this kind of exposure.
  14. Amine Miloudi

    Pity really if his trial was terminated.The guy's a natural.
  15. Try vipleague.co John.That's where I watch all my footy.
  16. World Cup Crowds

    The Aussies have really let this tournament down it's been badly handled,The most entertaining games have been where there has been a full house.You need a good crowd in to create an atmosphere which lifts the players, near empty stadiums have opposite effect.Surely the Yanks can't do a worse job in 25.Would love to be around then.
  17. I Am Happy....

    Couldn't agree more Ray.Good to see some positive thinking ,I'm really looking forward to the coming season in the UK.mainly in the Championship.
  18. World Cup Crowds

    SA is no longer competative due to selection on racial lines.
  19. I only hope the Aussies can make a better fist of the Emerging Nations than they have done with the World Cup Ray.Plenty advertising is what's required and getting the public on board.Sadly lacking inn the current event.
  20. Why are Aussies or indeed others allowed to select teams representing other nations?
  21. For 30 years I coached schoolboy league at a West Auckland Club( they had around 40 SB teams) in that time the the higher grades15 and16Year olds were affected by a certain headmaster, who dictated who could play on a Sat due to him wanting them to play Union.I think this practice still exists today. A couple of years ago the NZ Warriors had the stupidity to get the services of this guy as an advisor, when his record was well known
  22. This game should have been played in Auckland,there would have been a huge gate just from the Islanders alone Over 2,000 of them welcomed Tonga on their arrival in Auckland last night and that was at12pm.
  23. Media Watch World Cup

    Excellent coverage on the news tonight on both the Kiwis and Tonga.Not before time I have to say.
  24. World Cup talent

    Off topic!I'm heading to the NZ v Scotland game in Christchurch on Sat.As usual I will be wearing my Bulldogs shirt, always creates interest when doing so.
  25. Could France host the WC

    France holding the cup may not be a bad idea ,the Aussies certainly can't, the gates so far have been terrible.When you tune into watch a game and see a pathetic crowd it kind of like knocks the backside out of it.
