  1. Home kit is being launched on Friday, with the away next week I believe
  2. Yes, it seems they did. It's a shame, as they had been running for quite a number of years.
  3. Says Red Bull Stadium here: https://www.nrl.com/news/2019/10/17/new-york-bid-sizing-up-usa-players-for-shot-at-super-league/
  4. Imagine how good that side would be with Sam Burgess, Tommy Makinson and Mark Percival fit
  5. Agreed. Connor maybe, but I think it is pretty much of a muchness really.
  6. He didn't travel due to the injury suffered in the GF
  7. I like that pack. I would maybe not have selected Hill, so as not to start with both him and Graham, but as Watts isn't in the touring party, its probably as string as it can be. Halves look good too.
  8. It would be great to see them playing in downtown Manhattan, until crowds grow, Pier 40 (current home of the New York Knights) holds about 5000 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pier_40_at_Hudson_River_Park
  9. He might have been wearing no 2 but Chris Anderson and John Ribot were the wingers that day
  10. So they dont take notice of the ref's calls in-play? Ok then. Given there is audio of the ref telling them its the last tackle FIVE times after the initial incorrect call, then, as I said, its on the player in my opinion
  11. No, neither accusation applies; I actually wanted Canberra to win. I dont think he ran it in knowing it was the last tackle, but he DOES need to be more aware of what is happening around him -
  12. Exactly - imagine if he'd been informed it shook due last tackle, ignored it and called play on. Canberra then score on the next play.....
  13. Five times he cals 'last tackle' or 'still last' - its easy to blame the refs, and yes, the initial call of 'six to go' was incorrect, but players have to be aware of what is going on around them. It is 8 seconds from his initial call of 'last' to Within being tackled - that's on him.
