  1. Sargison back to SL

    Another English player who has taken the soft option and quit the NRL after one season. We never saw the best of him because he was injured. I would have liked to see him have another season for the club next year.
  2. You posted this the other day when I said Hardaker being out endured a Leeds win and I was right. I am correct here also. pepple trying to be anything but pessimistic about this result are kidding themselves
  3. I doubt it. This is their one chance in their history and they blew it. Will be a failure next year too
  4. With now Cas having failed this year and everything they have achieved come to nothing, should the club cash in and sell allot of their good players and their coach? They have allot of players who would command a great transfer fee and could keep the club going financially for years. For the players, they would also get a chance to win the GF by playing for one of Leeds, Wigan or Saints (the only clubs allowed to win a GF). The coach too- is it time for him to coach one of the big 3 or indeed the NR? He clearly can coach and he needs the right club to allow him to win silverware. Would also net Cas a good transfer fee.
  5. It's poetic license. So disappointed about this. I knew this would happen as soon as Hardaker was ruled out
  6. I'm shattered now. One of those days I wish I'd never heard of Rugby League. It's criminal that Cas aren't champions.
  7. This game so far has been a huge disappointment. Why is it that only 3 teams are allowed to win the GF? Cas never in the hunt
  8. Jason taumalolo

    Kiwis have been decimated and IMO, it's down to Kidwell. He has lost the dressing room. on the upside, this is England's best chance to make a WC final in years. They better not ###### it up.
  9. A strong squad, but pleasing for me is Mal hasn't resorted to stealing players from other nations. Sure, we know the likes of McGuire, Kaufusi and Fifita could have played for other nations, but the squad is 100% Aussie and it should ensure the other nations are at their strongest for the World Cup. So Tedesco will play for Italy, Korisau and Hayne for Fiji and Milford for Samoa BACKS: Billy Slater, Darius Boyd, Will Chambers, Dane Gagai, Tom Trbojevic, Josh Dugan, Valentine Holmes, Cooper Cronk, Cameron Munster, Michael Morgan, James Maloney FORWARDS: Aaron Woods, David Klemmer, Josh McGuire, Andrew Fifita, Jake Trbojevic, Jordan McLean, Boyd Cordner, Matt Gillett, Tyson Frizell, Wade Graham, Felise Kaufusi, Cameron Smith, Ben Hunt
  10. The Leigh squad

    I think Leigh have some good players worth having a look at. It's a shame they went down- they have a team which could have developed nicely
  11. What now for Catalans Dragons?

    Greg Bird's wife posted on Instagram following the game "thanks boys.....I needed at least one more European Summer". Sums it up really. The Catalans have too many foreigners just there for a holiday. Their hearts are not in it for the club and there are too many of them (only te'o Frenchmen in starting 13 today!). To fix the club, punt all the foreigners then sign up the best French talent, starting with a spine of Escare, Barthau, Fages and Pelisier. Gausch can pay transfer fees if he needs to. The club needs a culture and spirit that is French - not just be a hub for a bunch of Aussies and Kiwis to see Europe.
  12. Best end to a game you've ever seen?

    Best endings to a game: last years million pound game last nights game state of origin 1994 game 1 Souths v Roosters 2012 Leeds v Bradford in the first ever magic weekend but the coup de grat.... the 2015 NRL grand final
  13. With the success of Darryl Powell - undoubtedly the best coach in Britain, who made a name for himself at semi-pro Fev before being given the reigns of Cas, I am curious as to whether there are any other coaching gems floating around in lower league Rugby I'm England. It appears to be a decent breeding ground for coaches with former SW Scorpions coach Siebold also taking charge of Souths and former Keighly coach Demetriou the hot favourite to take over the top job at my club. For those that follow lower league rugby, who are the best coaches in the semi-pro ranks that you could see being a success at the top level?
  14. Wonderful game, the in-form Saints took Cas all the way. But it was the right result in the end and anything less than a Cas victory next week would be an injustice
