  1. Sammutdrop goal 79 minute! Just keeps sneaking up on ‘em this bloke.
  2. Looks like it’s caused a few problems. Would be interesting to see him in sunglasses.
  3. Yeah, I thought that. The incident seemed chaos on the match thread.
  4. Miloudi facing a long ban (or reduced, long ban) for trying to pick a Bulldogs player off the deck ala Luke Gale. Inappropriate language used by Batley players against Miloudi and vice versa. Both clubs appealing. Been quite an incident.
  5. Mick Crane at 13. He had more skill than Westerman and Knowles combined.
  6. Looks like Ferguson has turned his nose up at Leigh. https://www.examinerlive.co.uk/sport/rugby-league/blake-ferguson-leigh-centurions-update-23636603
  7. Whatever his situation now which SL forwards have we that are better than Sutton?
  8. Shows several things in no particular order. Lack of opportunity to develop, unsuitable learning course opportunity (college/Uni), unsuitable Club system, pay, sunshine. I am guessing the London lad is continuing his learning with Keebra Park due to the link with Wests.
  9. Looks like Newcastle Knights are now seriously interested in Pearce-Paul and Pryce. Also that they are looking for a 2 way agreement for their older players to find options to play in SL. Has it come to this??
  10. Reading the aussie press, Kyle was taken out of first team action as Gould thought he needed to 're-set' himself and his game but now he is ready to play. Then Gus drops a load of pressure on him by saying the Dogs will revolve around what Kyle does. If its a confidence thing, which imo is a massive percentage of an RL players make up, then to say nothing wouldve been a better option!
  11. I panicked then. I thought you were going by Taxi.
  12. I dont 100% agree but near enough. The main consideration, regarding the OP, is whether he would make the squad and you have to look at potential & existing injury risk during a long tournament. Unfortunately, for me, Joe fits into the higher level of risk. Our pitches will be getting firmer when/if the summer arrives and a run of good form at the back end might justify reconsideration. Edit: To Joes credit he is 13th in metres gained from 113 carries, so he is getting plenty of work and hasnt pulled up to my knowledge.
  13. Do we know what decision Victor Radley has made? Eng or Aus?
  14. He was down as No29 in their squad beginning of January so between then and now LB have lost an international representative at Academy level for a 3 year contract with Wests. I think we’ll see more of this.
  15. Amazing eh? England youth Rep too. I guess we could call this the DOMino effect.
  16. Thought he was still at London Broncos. Good luck to him.
  17. Nor for me. Ford isn’t and wasn’t involved enough. Certainly a good player at Championship level though.
  18. I think this game is free on OurLeague.
  19. Do you think the new commercial entity that is planned will look at this? If there’s something that could be developed or needs to be culled, it will be easy to spot for outside analysts coming in.
  20. He broke the French Law that professional sportspersons had to be double jabbed. He messed it up for himself and his team mates.
  21. When I’ve seen him on some TV he comes across ok. It’s the Twitter outbursts that are usually his undoing. Most of those are political comments though. We could counter DB with ‘what do Leigh offer’? I tried to get on their website to see but can’t access it.
  22. Realignment saga being realigned again.
  23. Are Wire in for this guy? Fox News saying a SL club chasing him and that Wire are the only ones with space on the Cap. Not sure of the others who are below cap - must be a couple. $200k aus. https://www.foxsports.com.au/news/nrl-2022-blake-ferguson-transfer-super-league-warrington-wolves-news-parramatta-eels-japanese-rugby-jail-round-3/news-story/f5d08bd3d361f4ceabe82e2882b89bb3
  24. TRL piece 6th Feb indicated TO were Kheirallah announced he was expected to leave. Kheirallah said he was ready to play on Feb 8th on his Instagram. This is what the TO President had to say in La Depeche. Feb 10. Mark Kheirallah's case is trickier. "It's more complicated" conceded Thursday, February 10, President Bernard Sarrazain in the columns of La Dépêche du Midi. "We had a problem, he cheated with us." reveals the strong man of the TO. Indeed, Mark Kheirallah would have obtained a fake vaccination pass and would have tried to use it with his leaders. "We tried to explain to him that we could forgive him in relation to his approach", continues Bernard Sarrazain, "but he refuses to be vaccinated. He also refuses to sign the repentance that he was offered and which was mandatory , by law. We are still in a conflict situation with him. But that will be resolved in the coming days." Mark Kheirallah's attitude would have greatly displeased internally, especially coach Sylvain Houlès. For this historic first Super League match, the club will also have to deal without Mathieu Jussaume, injured in the preparation match against the Catalans Dragons, lost 26-10 by the Toulouse team on January 26th.
  25. I think it was the law in France that pro sportspersons had to be double jabbed.
