  1. How can all you blokes take this garbage game seriously? These end of season internationals are a joke,they`re just a way to extend the season when we all know players on both sides of the world must be sick of seeing a Rugby League ball. The refereeing started off ok,but even that degenerated,helped along the way by the ever pedantic Mr Thaler in the Bunker. Most teams in the NRL would`ve walloped both sides on this showing,so roll on 2019 and get back to playing/watching decent entertainment.
  2. I was in Auckland on Sunday,driving back to the Airport with my brother in law. He took us around several suburbs in South Auckland,the red and white flags,bunting and artwork were all over the place. Pity they were soundly beaten,but the match itself will live in the memory for years to come.
  3. Bennett and Siebold to swap places in 2020,though probably both will move before the start of next season for obvious reasons. McGuire is off to the Tigers,with Cleary reuniting with his son at the Panthers and having Gould looking over his shoulder every time he turns around.

    Swinton v Worky.

    Well done Swinton and Hornets for surviving the dreaded drop. For once the crackpot goings on at GHQ has worked in both clubs` favour. We can both have a good Christmas and look forward to 2019.

    Half time

    I can only say well done to everyone at Hornets for this lifeline,hope the new coach and new players can keep the status quo again next season and onwards.

    Dewsbury Rams

    Great result Hornets,a real Houdini act in the offing now. Sheffield got nowt to play for,so it`s a matter of how much Hornets want it.

    Johnathan Thurston (Merged Threads)

    Not sure if this is the right Forum to put this on,but Steve Birch and I,two staunch Rochdale Hornets supporters,were privileged to have been at Robina Stadium on Saturday night to watch the North Queensland Cowboys defeat the Gold Coast Titans,30-26,to end the career of one of the greatest footballers ever to take the field,Johnathan Thurston. He played a total of 398 games for Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs,North Queensland Cowboys,Queensland and Australia. The man is a legend in Australia and rightly so,not only for his amazing skills as a footballer,but for his ongoing contribution to the Aboriginal people,something he will probably continue to do on a full time basis. No doubt a new star player will emerge in the coming years,but Thurston,to many,will remain their number one of all time.

    Only bottom club relegated

    I`ve just read Kevin Ashcroft`s views on the game. As he says,Bill Fallowfield would be turning in his grave at the things that are going on in the game today.

    Killer to Leave.

    Why can`t clubs get back to wearing the traditional big V? These modern day ones look like rugby union shirts,god forbid. Back in the day,blue shirt with red and white V;away shirt,white with red and blue V. Still got my away one from the eighties that I occasionally wear when I go out walking here in Tweed Heads. Now,that IS a shirt!

    And the band plays on.

    Now for the final tests

    You reckon mate? Barrow and Swinton are definitely beatable,Dewsbury,Batley and Sheffield no world beaters either,so if Hornets stick to the game plan and don`t lose their heads,a Houdini escape act could be on the cards. Let`s face it,there`s nowt to lose,no pressure on the team,just go out there and give it their all.
