  1. Was huge, we’re seeing a bit of a replay of the opening 20 of first half - Saints making metres, Catalan struggling again. When will Mourgue come on?
  2. Kicking on the first tackle, when they have had no possession on Saints line all game is just speechless by Catalan.
  3. Saints line speed is preventing any chance to spread the ball. Catalan aren’t making any ground with ball in hand and seem to be struggling. Some luck might help too.
  4. This is as frantic and brutal an opening 10min of rugby league I’ve seen this year

  6. https://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/sport/nrl/rugby-league-world-cup-will-go-ahead-despite-severe-reservations-from-nrl-clubs/news-story/2b16c03b84269680103e4615c593a2f0 Hold the phone, Australia may withdraw. Quote: " The Rugby League World Cup will go ahead but it could be missing one key component – the Kangaroos. The Daily Telegraph has learnt while World Cup organisers have confirmed the tournament will be staged as planned, the Australian team is yet to sign its participation agreement. That could lead to the tournament going ahead without the defending champions. Some clubs have lobbied for the tournament to be postponed 12 months given the ongoing uncertainty surrounding Covid-19 and the extended bubble the players will endure. ARL chairman Peter V’landys confirmed the commission had yet to give the go ahead for Australia to compete."
  7. Nathan Clearly has an injured shoulder and looking at post season surgery. Huge blow to the Kangaroos.
  8. Link to report in the Sydney Morning Herald: https://www.smh.com.au/sport/nrl/why-wests-tigers-are-furious-with-fittler-and-nsw-blues-20201101-p56ah3.html Would imagine a call on this will need to be made sooner rather than later. RIP to Northern Hemisphere teams.
  9. Is this entire match just dependent on SBW appearing? Wouldn't he be with the Samoan squad?
  10. In response to dropping to Number 2 in the World Ranking, Mal says: https://www.smh.com.au/sport/nrl/re...s-drop-to-jolt-kangaroos-20191119-p53c2s.html "We’ve got opportunities to play four or five Tests next year, we’ll see how we go.” The Australians are scheduled to embark on a Kangaroo tour of Europe next season that includes three Tests against England and a clash with New Zealand. There will be a number of lead-up games as well, potentially including a clash with France. Meninga said he was looking forward to Australia playing more matches in the future but was mindful of the demands on his players. “We’ve got Origin, so we have to be careful about the workload,” he said. “A lot of the players in the international side have played through the finals as well. That’s not to say the other nations don’t, but we have got three games of Origin too, so that adds to the workload. “We don’t get an opportunity to play together often. We’d like to play more games but, in fairness to the players, we’re playing the right amount of games at the moment. “We’ve got the Kangaroo tour . . . that’s good for us going into a World Cup. That will give us a bit more continuity and get some combinations going." ~~~~~~~~ Dear Mal, You decide how many opportunities you get to play Tests. The players who don't play Origin, also play NRL/Super League matches. It's not as if they don't do anything. Oh and if players are too tired, play someone else. I don't think we are ever going to see Australia play more than 4 or 5 Test maximum a year. They don't care enough.
  11. Samoa v NZ at the 2013 RLWC. Andrew Voss commentary, and the crowd make it something special. Plus that SBW moment.
