  1. This was all over the news when it was first alleged. Wasn’t good. I read somewhere it was the reason he quit the NFL
  2. Minimum of three years and eight months https://www.google.com.au/amp/s/amp.9news.com.au/article/20af9ab9-9908-42b3-9e15-53e101f55ea9
  3. Thankfully it’s all craft beers these days - there seems to be a new small brewery popping up on every corner! Fruit sour beers, alcoholic ginger beers, XPAs, IPAs, pale ales, loads of ciders... Think that’s why it’s so pricey!
  4. You wouldn’t want to live in Australia then - I’m in Brisbane and it’s pretty standard to pay $10-$12 for a schooner of beer (that’s between a half and a pint)!
  5. I’d prefer ‘golden try’. Could make for some really exciting play rather than just trying to set up a drop goal
  6. So true. I wouldn’t be booking anything for quite a while. Doesn’t look like they’ll be opening the international borders here until early next year at the earliest, plus the vaccine rollout here is painfully slow so who knows when things will get back to normal. By all means start planning, but don’t book anything as it’s so up in the air at the moment
  7. And spending a week in Lloret for Catalans v Hull was pretty damn good too (if you forget about the actual game, which was rubbish, we lost , and that most user unfriendly beer token system at the bar at the ground)
  8. Not an away day from a club perspective but England v Tonga in Auckland in the last World Cup semi was my favourite RL experience bar none, and that includes trips to Wembley, SL Grand Finals, NRL Grand Finals, State of Origins, World Cup finals... It was absolutely unforgettable
  9. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9171897/Inside-story-golden-boy-Brett-Dallas-went-hometown-hero-pariah-facing-25-years-jail.html?fbclid=IwAR24ZdMl0LleA8LZnYnEaq5-Z7fxROq3ROzh8Qs0SRaKP3sqQ6GyLF-FKGk
  10. Great for Rob and others rewarded for their genuine good deeds, charity work etc, but getting awards just for playing sport is ridiculous. Lewis Hamilton knighted? Just got doing his job? Load of nonsense
  11. So lucky we’ve had no community transmission of COVID in Qld for ages... but don’t think NSW were too impressed our premier introduced new easing of restrictions to allow 100 per cent capacity at outdoor stadiums the day before the game. Well played premier
  12. From that Sun story: “One of the main issues is a report compiled by Super League, with additional input from Rugby Football League chairman Simon Johnson, Andy Anson and Matthew Wheeler, into whether rugby league can succeed in Canada.” Do you know what would be interesting? If they compiled similar reports for all the areas in the UK where RL is currently played. Wonder what that would throw up?
  13. No I wasn't suggesting it would be an issue, more that it's a good thing that a similar name is lready familiar up here
  14. As someone else mentioned, the Brisbane-based Queensland netball team is the Firebirds, so the name is not too far removed from an already familiar brand in this neck of the woods. I don't think it's too bad
  15. To be fair it was always going to be a learning curve for Toronto early on in SL. Suffering early defeats is not the worst thing - it gives them a chance to figure out just what they need to work on to be competitive. If they can take on board those lessons and adapt accordingly, there’s no reason why they shouldn’t keep getting better, although their small squad is always going to hinder them
