Re: 2022 Rd 14 V Broncos: Game Day

Disappointing game, perhaps I'm so defeated that this one didn't really bother me all that much. The press conference looked a lot to me like "Xavier **** the bed and cost us the game, no need for me to say it, you all saw it" so Ricky just deflected instead of a public execution. Ricky sa...

Re: 2022 Rd 1 V Sharks: Teams and Previews

Decisions like this, Shillo, and Campo, are why I will always ALWAYS have Ricky's back.

He is a brave, courageous man that makes incredibly difficult decisions that 99% of other coaches don't have the balls to make.

Re: How the Canberra Raiders partied with the Australian cricket team on an Ashes Tour of England

I find it equally cringeworthy when ex-NRL players look back on behaviours that should stay deep in the past with a fondness and pride that is just wrong. It’s worse when those same ex-players take a righteous view on the behaviours of current players that is significantly less than anything they g...

Re: Bailey Simonsson signs three year deal with Eels, starting in 2022

The only thing that confuses me about this deal is we'll be picking up part of his salary for 2022 and 2023

That hardly seems necessary for a $250k-ish winger?? But oh well

Re: Josh Hodgson looks to be staying put

I for one am so happy Josh is staying.

He had a bit of a tough year after a knee reco within a team that played pretty terribly overall.

New strength and conditioning for him starting the off season early could do him absolute wonders

I'm very glass-half-full on this one, and happy :)
