  1. Rangi Chase

    It's as Exiled Wiganer says Matt you may have sympathy for an addict, but it is his aggression and lack of discipline that means he's not right for our game. I will never forgive or forget him using violence against his own countryman in the game where he did this to Tangi Ropati's jaw in 2012. I was stood by the side of the incident and I can tell you that Chase's action was not accidental. By the way Chase got a three match ban, while Tangi was out much, much longer
  2. RL Immortal Graeme langlands is in the news, this time it's not good. He has been charged with six counts of indecent dealing with a girl under 16. It is alleged the offences occurred on the Gold Coast in the early 1980s. He lives in a nursing home in New South Wales and is suffering from dementia and other health problems.
  3. The 2020 Grand Final is due to be played at Sydney Cricket Ground according to some reports, while other big stadiums are being rebuilt. Thought it might have gone to Melbourne or Brisbane for a change.
  4. Good signing for the Titans

    So Peats still seen as first pick at Titans RRovO. You may have to wait longer for his return.
  5. Thurston mystfied by Pearce decision

    Manly surely favourites. The money deal seems to be an offer from Knights. Storm are also being linked today.
  6. Announced at the beginning of November: Manly Sea Eagles have announced the signing of exciting young half Lachlan Croker for 2018 on a one-year deal. A former NSW U18s and U20s player, the skilful five-eighth/half-back has also represented the Australian U20s team. Croker made his NRL debut for the Canberra Raiders in the win over the Sydney Roosters at GIO Stadium in round two of the 2016 season. A player with a great running and kicking game, Croker will be looking to further his NRL career at the Sea Eagles after playing the past two seasons for Mounties in the Intrust Super Premiership. A Goulburn junior, Croker is the nephew of former Canberra Raiders forward Jason Croker.
  7. Hayne to fly

    ... plus they won't have him which is a bonus
  8. You'd think he had a destination sorted before asking for/ sorting out a release.
  9. On his likely move to Manly... DCE has offered to move to 6 as Pearce wants 7 ... slight hurdle:
  10. Well, Wayne Bennett hasn’t minced his words. There’ll be no approach from Broncos for Pearce. He wouldn’t fit in under the salary cap plus Bennett wouldn’t have him at the club as he wouldn’t fit into the club culture. We haven’t spoken to him - we are not interested.
  11. Thurston mystfied by Pearce decision

    Okay JT’s not unbiased but there again some of his media based ‘advisors’ have urged him to move but they aren’t either. For me Roosters with Pearce and Cronk could have been real contenders. If Pearce had held off until he’d got into the season with a few games under his belt, then he’d know for sure. Cooper is a likeable bloke. I think it could have worked out.
  12. Pearce has been egged on to feel slighted and move on. Surely Roosters could have handled this better if they really did want to keep him and Cronk at the club.
  13. Looks to me like England are facing better opposition than Australia.
  14. NRL will face an unfair dismissal case brought against it by a referee who claims he was unfairly sacked from the game’s elite match officials squad. Chris James, who has refereed 228 first-grade games, was let go on October 7 by NRL referees boss Tony Archer, almost a week after the end of the season. Only a month earlier, Archer is said to have praised the work of James with younger referees. James is now seeking reinstatement or compensation, with the support of the Professional Rugby League Match Officials (PRLMO) and the trade union body Unions NSW. “Chris James is a first rate referee who has given a significant chunk of his working life to the game,” Silvio Del Vecchio, chairman of the PRLMO, said.
