  1. Samoa Squad

    To be fair none of their team will be near Aus or NZ selection any way. Milford is still a few years off and Kasiano has had the chance to play for NZ before but opted for Samoa. These guys are proud of their heritage. That's why every game they play is like a war! The England forwards are going to feel it for a few days after
  2. I thought it was one of those games played in poor conditions where the kicking game is key and Brough, as always at Headingley, pulled a great performance. I thought there was a 12 point dubious swing in there somewhere but in general, Huddersfield more than deserved that victory. The last month Leeds have had 4 straight capitulations in the second half. Maybe something to look at for the coaching staff. for the guy who asked about padding on the boards around the wall, it's well padded behind the ads. Still going to sting a bit hitting the wood at full speed though
  3. Cooper Cronk annonces exit from Strom

    He'll come to us with Aaron Woods. James Graham going to Newcastle and Reynolds going to Cronulla are the rumours. Wouldn't mind those trades to be fair. After that, he'll walk into a top media job commentating for Fox Sports. Always great to listen to and knows how to talk in front of a camera.
  4. The defense really pleased me. The structure never collapsed and every tackle seemed to be a big hit. It felt like Leeds wanted to hurt the opposition on every defensive play and prove a point. It was fun to watch. Let's see if the same effort is there against Wakefield first though before anyone gets carried away.
  5. Handlings suffered have you you never watched him before? The whole bunch of them have lead hands. It's an ongoing joke in Aus about how much they all drop the ball. It has nothing to do with union
  6. Just seen the Leeds team. Maybe Cas by 40
  7. Leeds' defence has been good this year so far. Granted they haven't had much opposition but I don't think many will blow them out. I reckon Cas will win but only in the region of 16-8/16-10 or so and that being down to the fact Leeds don't know how to score tries. Should be an entertaining game though.
  8. Are the Aussie Schoolboys the same as the Junior Kangaroos though? I always got the impression they weren't and the Junior Roos were another step up
  9. It's the NSW cup, not just a local comp. The standard is similar to SL and it's the same as flipping it if say Leigh had to rearrange a fixture and a junior game had to be moved or cancelled
  10. Tomkins had a solid comeback too, especially after 9 months out. It was a very NZ Warrior-esque performance by him too. Most of the tries he scored in the NRL came in a similar fashion down that right side attacking close to the line. Then when Shaul turned him inside out it was definitely like watching him in Auckland. Let's be fair though, it's his first game in nearly a year. He'll get better as the weeks and months go on, as long as he can stay fit
  11. He's deceptively big. The first time I saw him in person I was surprised as he never looks it on TV.
  12. That's what I mean. But players are always coming through the ranks so if they found a good young 6/7 and developed them without losing them to Aus/NZ I do reckon with the packs and outside backs that the produce that they wouldn't be far off the mark
  13. After watching them closely the last few years I actually think Samoa and Tonga aren't a million miles off the big 3. I've said for a couple of years that a lack of decent halves is the difference. They definitely play with more pride and passion that Aus/NZ/Eng and everything is done at 100mph. If they could sort their completion rates out and find a good 6 and 7 though they'd be dangerous
  14. TSN and Sportsnet are the main two networks in Canada so I'd assume they'd try to get either of these two involved. Sport at any level in North America is broadcast much better than over this side of the world so I don't think they'll struggle. It all just depends how much
  15. Awful game of football tonight between two very poor teams. I reckon the missed tackle count must have been above 60. It was like watching touch and pass for the majority. Pathetic at times, average the rest.
