  1. Interesting video. Was there for the opener and most the home games of the first season (free tickets!!!!!!). Opener was a cracking game, with a great atmosphere. Winning was the icing on the cake. Sadly by the end of the season, home fans were almost outnumbered by the away fans. Fair weather fans? Maybe... but in a city so far from the heartlands and where at the time the rival code barely drew over 10,000 fans for most club games anyway, a good team (read one able to win at least every other game) was needed. Something that PSG sadly wasn't. Year 2 was a complete disaster if I recall. And quite frankly I felt no connection (and probably wasn't alone, judging by the crowds) with a team mostly comprised of Antipodean journeymen. And no, before anyone asks, I don't have a PSG jersey.
  2. Yep. That's about it. In other words, the NRL is run by muppets.
  3. Barry Russel resigns from his position of Sharks CEO. An interesting tenure to say the least.
  4. Well, I agree with you 100%, Graham. Yet, I'm always amazed when I read that people put themselves in that sort of situation in the first place. What is it, the 4th or 5th incident since the start of the month? It's going to be a long offseason. Edit: Of course, it goes without saying that I'm in no way defending De Belin's actions if what is alleged is true.
  5. Don't get me wrong, I'm ready to believe that this young woman is telling the truth and has been through a painful experience... but, when he proposed a nightcap, what was she expecting?
  6. Apparently, Shaun Johnson to Cronulla for 3 years* is now officially official. Should be thrilled, but replacing a guy who breaks his contract with another one is hardly excitement-inducing. * Will see how long this contract lasts...
  7. Featherstone Rovers... Most journos just copy & paste what they read on the internet.
  8. Don't tell me that Jeff Robson is coming out of retirement.
  9. not that much actually, they'll need to release a reserve grade player first.... and maybe the U/16s water carrier. Tough times ahead.
  10. If Inglis is forced to relinquish the captaincy, I suggest Cameron Munster instead. After all, a kick to the head is barely worth a fine in the NRL.
  11. One of my favorite players ever. I honestly thought he'd spent his whole career at Penrith. So did he, probably. But, I'm glad he eventually signed to Cronulla. One of the many signings that made 2016 possible.
  12. Point taken. We, fans, look at things one way. Players however have their own motivation. Who knows what Fittler's thinking anyway?
  13. Come on, FD. Money is a big incentive, you can't deny that. I think Fifita shouldn't be selected however.
