Manfred Mann's Achievements



  1. With the departure of the current Warrington coach Steve Price and the arrival of talented Daryl Powell the club will surely have a renaissance in 2022.
  2. I thought that Inglis had signed for two years! Warrington should re sign him. 2022 will be a good year for him.
  3. On Fox League NRL360 today one of the commentators said that Corey Norman is headed for Super League because no NRL club wants him. All agreed that no NRL club wants him. Don’t underestimate the stupidity of the recruitment office at Wakefield.
  4. Paul Green was an assistant to Trent Robinson, and left to become coach of North Queensland and NRL Grand Final winner in 2015. Green is now Queensland State of Origin coach. Justin Holbrook was an assistant to Robinson at the Roosters. But he left to become very successful at St Helens, winning Grand Finals, and quite successful at the Titans. From what I have seen of Trent Robinson in public, I can’t imagine this very intelligent and caring man ever being an insecure employer of incompetent sycophants. There are Bellamy assistants who have been successful, most notably Michael Mcguire who won the 2010 Grand Final in his first year at Wigan, and was named Coach of the Year in the Man of Steel awards of 2010, and the next year won the Challenge Cup final over Leeds. In 2013 Mcguire began his position as coach of South Sydney, making the top four in that year, and the following year won the 2014 NRL Grand Final at South Sydney. He is now coach of West’s Tigers and New Zealand.
  5. Both full back Matt Dufty and five eighth Corey Norman have just been told that they are not wanted beyond this season by St. George-Illawarra rugby league club. Dufty, who is not on big money, has only been in conversations with Canberra Raiders. No other club has shown interest. This means that he cannot demand a financially extravagant contract. Norman’s agent has been trying to find another NRL club for him, but has found no interest. Norman will thus not be demanding a huge financial deal. This suggest that both players, who are still in their prime, could be attracted to good offers from Super League clubs. Which clubs are most likely to put in an offer to them?
  6. So you are claiming to be part of the tradition of Robin Gibb?
  7. Robin, I hope you don’t mind me asking, but are you a man or a woman? Robin can be a man’s name, but it is more commonly a woman’s name.
  8. Robin, I hope you don’t mind me asking, but are you a man or a woman?
  9. Boyd Cordner won’t be elected an Immortal. But he deserves to be a member of the NRL Hall of Fame. He is a real role model for younger players.
  10. I found his statements very moving. Any rugby league fan who has a heart should watch the entire 26 minutes.
  11. You are exaggerating massively. The Catalans teams are not consisting of “virtually no French players.” Last weekend 9 of the 17 Catalans players were French. Catalans are not fielding “half a dozen ex Wiganers.” There are four ex Wiganers in the team when all are fit and not suspended: Sam Tomkins, Joel Tomkins, Mickey McIlorum, and Tom Davies.
  12. But it was the poster I was responding to who first described himself as a bad person.
  13. I never said that Catalans blew away St Helens. There is no sentence of mine conveying that interpretation. Please read my text again. I said that Catalans displayed against both Wigan and St Helens a “more consistently relentless and unwavering attitude in both attack and defence for the full 80 minutes.” That allowed Catalans to narrowly defeat St Helens, in part by inducing a part of Saints’ poor completion rate to which you referred, and also allowed Catalans to blow away the Hardaker diseased Wigan team.
