  1. Wow. What a great match. Canberra are indeed 'the real deal' I really hope they win the Grand Final
  2. Thanks Farmduck - very interesting reading that I think it will end up Storm Roosters Raiders Souths Eels Manly Broncos Sharks I will also stick my neck out and tip the Titans to finish bottom
  3. I like computer games. Playing online can be sociable and I know a lot of people that do it. It is very entertaining. My son plays online games with his friends. Some of them are from the local football team who he plays for. They get plenty of exercise and seem generally healthy. As with watching TV, drinking pop, eating crisps, red meat, drinking beer etc etc it is fine if done as part of a balanced life and not 24/7 when it would be a problem. Well done to this lad. He has a skill and has made a lot of money for himself and his family. Not really sure how judging people for doing something that doesn't hurt anybody is going to restore society to it's previous golden era? Is it really that different to being on mobile phones or the internet.....
  4. Yep. Whitehead and Hodgson were also excellent. Great balance in the Raiders team - I really hope they can keep it up and win the Grand Final. Leiluia is on his way back which gives them a bit more strike power and their defence is looking very solid.
  5. The match this morning between Penrith and Canberra was interesting. A few tight calls (which the commentators all felt were correct after replays) went against Penrith which led to James Maloney having to be warned on the way off at half time to stop disputing all the decisions and Ivan Cleary having a word with the ref at half time - which is not allowed. Refs did a decent job - they cannot win. Our refs will be looking forward to Maloney coming over and helping them with the rules. On a different point - the English players were excellent again.
  6. I meant Brad Mackay the loose forward who played for Bradford. McNamara was quality for a couple of seasons so I stand by that one.
  7. Sculthorpe A Farrell Fielden Fairleigh Vagana Anderson Morley Hill Graham Sinfield Mackay Cunningham Roby Lowes Peacock O Loughlin Bateman Whitehead Vowles Bird Burgess McNamara Shiels Walmsley Thompson Forshaw Watts Clarke L Farrell Dymock Hetherington Lautiti Delaney Gilmour Was he better than any of these?
  8. Not the people who choose the 20 best forwards obviously....
  9. Every player is 'quality' according to O Connor. I was trying to work out how Leeds are doing so badly as according to McDermott yesterday all their players are wonderful, especially the young ones who all seem to be set to be world class. The potentially interesting part yesterday (Wilkin's comments about faking injuries and crusher tackles) was cut short by Carney but is exactly the sort of thing they should be debating. Clarke talks some rubbish at times but when prompted in the right direction he can come out with some interesting stuff. Jodie Cunningham has real potential - getting better and better and already better than 'Baz and Tez'
  10. If it is a choice between Liverpool or no magic weekend = Liverpool. The concept is sound. A weekend of rugby league be it live or on TV is a great thing. There is work to do and ideally it will go back to Newcastle but wherever it goes it is still worth having.
  11. Very good point. Does not portray the sport in a good light - other sports dish out massive fines for even suggesting refs get things wrong. (Fans doing it is bad enough)
  12. That went well for the Roosters....... The Knights were fantastic though
  13. I like magic weekend - can we not keep it and try your idea as well? Surely the fans would go to magic and a big game at a football ground if there was plenty of notice and they were kept away from magic and the cup final?
