Re: 2022 Rd 16 V Dragons: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

Who is "advocating for CNK over Savage"? I must've missed that post. All I see is a lot of disproportional hate thrown towards CNK for simply being named on the bench, a role I think suits his versatility quite well. Not really if you're rolling with a 9 on the bench though. 2 big men is ...

This series does have a whiff of 2020 about it. Qld played above themselves in game one and got the big upset, NSW dominated game 2 and you expect that normal service has resumed. But then inexplicably Qld win game three. Potentially the same thing here. By rights, NSW should win game three comfort...

Great win from PNG.
Number of top flight players really under performed but a hell of a lot of players from the lower grades stepped up in this one.
Big lesson for all sides this weekend to be picking genuine playmakers at 6/7.

Re: Your predicted finish for the Canberra Raiders in 2022

It's a rather shallow analysis but we can beat everyone on that run home except the Storm and Panthers. 3 games against direct competitors for those final spots means a big turn around with a win. Souths have a tough draw. I think we'll make the 8.

That's the essence of Peachy. Effective when it's simplified but when he's required to "impact" or come up with the big play it's very often a negative impact. He finds himself in that situation far more often than his skill level demands because of that reputation. I'm really not a fan bu...

Re: 2022 State of Origin II: Blues V Maroons

Very odd for anyone to have a crack at the Trbojevic pick. He's the best middle defender in the game and that's why he's there. Not having good defenders there is why they lost game 1. Who is taking those tough carries though? One prop on the bench and one on the starting line up. I think NSW was j...
