  1. Thanks, you articulated that much better than I did. Agree with all of it.
  2. Does anyone else think Hall was brought in primarily for his defensive ability and being able to make good metres coming away from the line? He replaced Ferguson who is a very good metre maker as well as outstanding all round winger. Not one for scoring tons and tons of tries though. Maybe Hall was not brought in with try scoring a priority?
  3. I like Moses alot as a player. Very good attacking runner, high skills. Issue could be for the Kangaroos with his defensive ability. Correct me if I'm wrong, however at club level he generally has a player cover his side specifically to keep him off too much tackling. He's yet to play SOO either, so I would feel the jury is still out on if he will be at the step up to tier 1 international level in 2021. The Roos may well go for a safe option which DCE would be... With Munster or Keary.
  4. Agree, if all 5 remain fully fit, they are definitely in the mix for winning the big trophy this season. It could be their year yet in 2020. Would be great if they do.
  5. I hope they continue too. They really make quality game and replica shirts that fit very well.
  6. If there is ever a Perth team in the NRL it would be likely to be very Anglo. The SL Forwards and some Backs who go over from the UK, do a good job in the NRL, with some going on to be being big stars. Good luck to the young man and I'm sure there will be more Wigan players going to the NRL soon.
  7. Good player. Would do well at Salford or Castleford or Wakefield. Would be a good addition to most squads as is very good off the bench. He has devestating acceleration. Would like to see his time over 40 yards.
  8. I think it makes sense as they are maybe looking for players with development potential, so the younger age bracket makes sense. With 25 year olds you would need them to be the finished article and would not be so willing to invest a few years in developing them as players.
  9. Unfortunately this is very true. A weak OZ team on paper is often better than thought once out on the field. If it's losing too, it's usually to NZ for sure. I think the Kangaroos have too much quality in the backs and halves for England sadly.
  10. He would be a good replacement for Evalds at FB next year and would be likely to fit in as SRD seem to be good with talented players who need a understanding coach who can get the best out of them.
  11. Cipriani is arguably the best NH fly half in Union and has great passing abilities. He's a player who would be able to do a decent job at half back in the NRL imo. Only issue is he would require a big salary and its not clear if he would be worth it, ie would he be a star half back? He also has played in Oz, in super rugby about 10 years ago. The list is probably speculative as it's for an article tbh. Ben Te’o is a very good signing for The Broncos and him being there shows how a year can be a long time in life and alot can change. From the England Union squad for a WC to Japan to the NRL.
  12. Agree he would definitely be a SL level Half and agree that he would suit Hooker better in RL than Half Back. I think he would be very effective at 9.
  13. Agree. Tbh OZ must have 75-100 players who are of a good enough level to probably beat a England 13. Taking away 40 of them will still make for a competitive series and there will still be interest in the games here in the UK and some interest down under too.
  14. If this does happen, couldn't OZ pick a side minus the SOO players? It may not be as star studded but a selection of NRL players who aren't quite good enough to play SOO is still a formidable opponent and one I would pay to watch. During the SL war in 1995, didn't OZ go to the world Cup without some pretty big names and it was still a good tournament and a decent OZ team?
  15. Tbh sport is far more important to the Male over 30 demographic than people probably think. I will miss sport alot. It gives me alot, and got me through some dark times. I think having the players and teams play out of a location up North OZ and one stadium so to keep TV sport is a good idea. Imo other sports should do the same, as the public need something to do and to take their minds off things. I am gutted SL isn't continuing in some limited format for now. I hope the NRL can keep going to some degree.
