  1. I am sure that you are wrong about the reason for hiring Ryan Hall. Trent Robinson is much more ambitious than that.
  2. If true, it is disgraceful, and these responsible English club bosses are digging the grave of rugby league growth in France by their narrow minded parochialism. I don’t know who these club bosses are, but I am sure that Ian Lenagan is not one of them.
  3. Read the last paragraph in this article: https://www.wigantoday.net/sport/rugby-league/joe-burgess-winging-his-way-salford-red-devils-2908318?fbclid=IwAR16BGPAZRZdVAkJnLS5Qf345CLcbAHCtf3sU8LOgUM-LsTfAquhN29g6tE If it happens, it will be a big boost for Toronto, which lacks dominating props. Now all the club needs is two more powerful props and a quality half (Canadian representative Ryley Jacks would be a good choice) in order for the Toronto team to be competitive with the top Super League clubs.
  4. The thought of a 61 year old man running around naked in public is truly frightening.
  5. Poor in the sense of unlucky! Ryan Hall rarely gets passed the ball by his inside men. The one time that Ryan Hall gets a pass in a try scoring position the pass is ruled forward! What rotten luck! And in the same game, his competitor on the other wing scores five tries -- the first time someone from his club has achieved that feat in 65 years! What rotten luck!
  6. I really want the Warriors to win because (1) I like the Warriors, (2) I like Roger Tuivasa-Sheck a lot, (3) all the Warriors players have endured great personal hardship to keep playing far away from family and home, and thereby keep the NRL competition afloat.
  7. Poor Ryan Hall. At least he had the grace to laugh about it once he realised that the try had been disallowed for a forward pass. If Brett Morris is fit next week I can't see history buff Trent Robinson dropping the five try scoring school teacher Matt Ikuvalu. I fear that mathematician Ryan Hall will be dropped instead. What rotten luck!
  8. If either Tom Trbojevic or Kalyn Ponga get picked as full back ahead of him he might. However I don't think that this is going to happen.
  9. In tomorrow’s game Ryan Hall will be marking either the top NRL tryscorer, Kyle Feldt, or former NFL apprentice, “My Funny Valentine” Holmes. Whichever of these two stars it is, Ryan Hall will need to play at his best if he is to contain them.
  10. We have a dearth of well spoken, clean cut intelligent rugby league players. The former prince of those players, Cooper Cronk, has now retired from playing and jumped immediately into a central role as a commentator on Fox League television. Daly Cherry-Evans might possibly follow Cooper Cronk’s path when Daly retires.
  11. Payne Haas could be the lynchpin of the German national team in 2025 --- along with Jimmy Keinhorst, Kyle Feldt, Coen Hess and several other stars. By that time the former US President Donald Drumpf could be the team mascot.
  12. If we could clone him, as I suggested above, then there would definitely be more people like him.
  13. Me too. Lebanon will not have Tim Mannah and Robbie Farah to play for it again in 2021. But it will have Adam Doueihi (West’s Tigers) at full back, Josh Mansour (Penrith), at centre, and Alex Twal (Wests Tigers) at prop. If Mitchell Moses (Parramatta) was to play at half back, then Lebanon’s performances would improve massively over what it can achieve without him.
