  1. How do you decide which SL or Champs club gets which player?
  2. Let’s not forget that the Redcliffe Dolphins are an existing club — a very wealthy club! Their NRL team will take matches to central Queensland and Brisbane. If Suncorp is unavailable for some matches, they have their own 10k stadium in Redcliffe. I’m sure Sunshine Coast stadium would have them, as would Rockhampton and Bundaberg. They’ll be light on depth in year 1. But so be it. The TV money will keep flowing in, and they have strong teams from juniors to QLD cup.
  3. I tend to disagree. There’s enough promise in a good half dozen. Just need to remain in a high performance environment. They may not be world beaters, but they can do a solid job.
  4. Not a compelling argument. What was the last UK RL club listed for sale, and who were the registered bidders?
  5. Referees interpret scenarios and apply the rules. In my opinion, some referees have a better feel for the game then others and as a result interpret the game in a way that results in more stoppages. Again, in my humble opinion there are some referees who understand what the game is like to actually play than others.

  8. If the referees allowed a game to flow, I’d agree with you. I think Thaler did a great job on the weekend to let the game flow. I don’t expect them to get everything right nor do individual decisions affect my enjoyment. But an erratic game that becomes total chaos is not much fun for a viewer who doesn’t support a team and rather wants to watch high quality, free flowing, professional rugby league.
  9. By and large, The way games are interpreted and officiated by the referees has a significant effect on my enjoyment as a fan. I find it too erratic and each game the ref is on the brink of losing control. Significant investment is needed. The one I find has no feel for the game is Chris Kendall.
  10. You were correct in your interpretation of the rules, but not correct in yelling at the referees.
  11. Another case of a lack of central funding, no RFL central strategy and the successes/failures of RL in the UK being dependent on the whims of wealthy individuals.
  12. Have supported TO closely this year but feel very underwhelmed at this point in the season. The intensity and grit has been missing far too often. Hull KR seem to find a way in those unfashionable games, and I dare say this will be the same. A scrappy affair but KR on top through sheer determination.
  13. The claim that there’s no players in perth. From memory there’s more playing in WA than VIC.
  14. What it needs is a resourced and strategic governing body, or backbone organisation. The debate should be who is the backbone? IRL, RFL or SRL?
  15. I’d pick a future date that this rule is abolished so it forces governing bodies to be more proactive. At the moment they are doing all that they need to (ie finding players with grandparents) to be competitive. If the grandparent rule was abolished we might see more proactive governing bodies finding clubs for their players to continue to develop at (ie the Greek fella joining London skolars).
  16. Exactly this. Don’t think it would have changed the result. Just made me really frustrated watching it. There were a few obstructions (both teams) where the ball carrier went straight into the space created by the decoy and there was no call by the ref. I know my view is better watching on TV but it just seemed so obvious. Is that ref normally SL standard? I noticed a few seasoned SL refs running the line. What’s the deal there?
