  1. Tiger. Pah. Singaporean and wasnt on the list anyway
  2. A cold Singha is a thing of beauty. It really is. I would have to go Japan, the breadth of quality is unsurpassed in the region tbh.
  3. Lucky. You were lucky. Good effort on the prize front...
  4. Lets hope crowds can go back and clap him non stop for 80 mins. Proper player.
  5. Pink Floyd. The Wall. Oh my. I cant get enough! Imagine buying that on vinyl back in the day. You lucky buggers.
  6. Farnworth looks good in spells, but he looks exactly what he is. A rookie. Doesnt help that hes wing one minute, 1 for spells and now centre. Outside that porous middle and with another rookie outside him. If i wa Brisbane, id be getting Maloney and Graham over for rest of the season..
  7. Seiko SKX007 or a variant thereof. Dont even waste any time looking elsewhere as its one of the best watches out there full stop and in your budget.
  8. AFL A second team in Brisbane also ensures that it remains a Rugby League city. Strengthens the East coast before an 18th team is in either Perth, New Zealand or the Pacific Islands
  9. Wish he were English. Brilliant player.
  10. The other team names are relatable things we know. Firehawks one minute, the bombers the next. Journalism is really poo isnt it.
  11. Really enjoying the bike - a nice hour in the sun during my dinner 'hour' is an absolute joy. 117
  12. How very dare you. Ban this thug. Immediately.
  13. Theres not many outstanding youngsters? Are you on drugs?
  14. Work in progress. Gutherson is ok/good, but hes not elite. Reminds me of Ratchford in that sense. Brown is still new and a bit of a maverick at the moment, not sure on what his game is. Moses is the general, clearly. But needs to be better against the better teams. A bit of a cop out, but you get the drift. I dont know enough about Mahoney. Parra's strength is their exit sets on the back of Sivo, Ferguson and to a certain extent Blake. I personally dont think this is good enough for them to be talked about as they are, but one of my best mates is a Parra fan so maybe im being too negative. As i said. WIP in terms of my understanding of them.
  15. It does indeed. Just thinking on this more, i've always been a keen advocate for this style rather than the 'block' play; i'm really interested to see what happens this season from that tactical perspective. A lot obviously depends on the players you have: Canberra - Very runny. Split halves who want to run 1st with a runny 1. 9 is the general Roosters - Split halves who direct and probe. Runny 1. Workman 9. Structured. Melbourne - A hybrid of Canberra and Roosters with a general at 9 and a runny 1 and 6. Structured though. Parra - WIP especially with their 6 and 9. Manly - Pure general at 7. Solid 9 and runny 1 and 6. Will think on this.
  16. Or a 7. Missing Cleary is huge for Penrith. With the changes in the rules, i foresee a shift from a ball playing 1 to a more running style. The trend will be to go to an edge and come back to the middle where the A and B defenders will in theory be more tired. Negates the need to have a ball playing 1 out the back of a block play - it'll still be there, but less so. Regarding Farnworth, really looking forward to seeing him play centre; with an England WC hat on, we're light there so a good season or 2 and he could be the next Jack Reed ?
  17. Aye. Enjoying Williams's defensive aggression more than anything. With the ball, he does what he needs to do and doesnt try too much which is nice. Be really interesting to see how he develops, see if he becomes more dominant at 1st receiver rather than play predominantly right side. Tom B was very good an all, he'll need to be as that Souths pack is comparatively soft. They could struggle this year. What is Farnworth's best position? Don't Brisbane also have the really good young Tongan waiting to play 1? Maybe he could end up replacing Boyd; a game in the centres this week would do him well then.
  18. A middle age man with back problems, should 100% work out with kettlebells. Done properly, they'll help strengthen the posterior chain and ultimately fix the back. Running is very healthy, agreed. If you're a runner, you're likely genetically predisposed to run; not too heavy etc. For those who are over weight and wanting to lose the timber, thats where it becomes a problem and should therefore be avoided.
  19. Personally, i think running is one of the worst things we can do to keep fit if you're not good at running. Bad mechanics and or support are a recipe for further injury / in-balance. Better options - If you can, swim. Buy a kettlebell. Shadow box. Burpees. Body weight circuits. Lunge. Buy a bike.
  20. If you enjoy that read some of Pavels stuff on kettlebells
  21. Got my bike fixed and the weather seems to be on the turn back to wonderfullness.
  22. Random (very sketchy) memory of Andy Fisher throwing someone into the railings at the railway end, post office road. Think he got a 312 match ban.
  23. My mushrooms on toast are ready for dinner. Hope shes done well.
