Brits in the NRL


Recommended Posts


Walters was hardly reaching for the popcorn. But amid the scrap, he would have been pleased with Brisbane’s defensive clean sheet and the slick performance of centre Herbie Farnworth.

The British utility back was dangerous, amassing 213 metres, six tackle busts and three line breaks as he carved up Canterbury on the edges.

At 21, the 100kg Farnworth is developing into a rangy attacking threat for the Broncos. Brisbane’s forwards should heed his hard running.

It shows how awful the Dogs are though if Brisbane put 24 past them without conceding. I haven’t seen Thompson play for them this season, is he getting a gig?

Isn't Thompson suspended at the moment?

Ryan Sutton outstanding for canberra this morning . Three men down , two of them forwards he stood up and put in a tremendous shift . Nice try from Williams , Hodgson was prominent , but the Raiders unsurprisingly just run out of puff . Absolutely tremendous game .

Shouldn’t be losing after winning 31-10 with half an hour to go.

Shouldn’t but they just started rowing and the Warriors were running downhill fast and the Raiders massively fatigued couldn’t stem the tide . RTS was great against a tiring side . I don’t think Sticky will be overly upset , fully tooled up they’ll be there or thereabouts

Chuffed about Farnworth. Barring injury, I’d say he’s a cert for the England squad now. Some quality at centre, at last!

Which is more than can be said for that match , I nearly lost the will to live after an hour .  Couple of nice tries near the end but those sides are average and  I’d give Town a chance against the Dogs , they’re bloody useless

Superbly weighted kick from Herbie for that last try as well.

All the Canberra Englishmen got over for tries also. Great to see.

It has been confirmed Dom Young will debut this afternoon for the Knights against the Tigers. Position will be announced an hour before kick off but I am hoping we play him in the centres.

They're all overrated. None of them should make the england team for the world cup; particularly hodgson who at best is our third choice hooker.

Ran the ball in well, made a couple of errors in defence. Looked exactly what he is: a young lad, with potential, making his debut. Assuming the injured players return soon he can go back to reserve grade for a bit, work on the things he needs to, and slowly progress. The Knights know what they're doing with him.

Isn’t Best injured and likely to miss a few weeks ?

Pretty much spot on. Plenty of things to work on but some good signs too.

Yeah he's out for an indefinite period at the moment and Shibasaki had an abysmal game on the wing so I suspect Young will keep his spot next week. Hopefully he can build on those few defensive issues and grow in confidence during that time.
