Player movements and rumours

  1. Magic AJ Parker

    Just tuned in to an Atkins try assist.

    Late tackle my ass. The rulings on kick pressure this year in general have been an absolute joke. That's embarrassing.
  2. Magic AJ Parker

    Crowd looks good, was this a sell out?
  3. jazman84 JM Eightyfour

    Would have been close. Was over 50K.

    Great win, but gutted for Paps.

    PVL on recruiting from the NFL

    “It’s an initiative we want to trial,” V’landys said of the American recruitment drive.

    “We’ll do a four-day combine in Vegas and rugby league scouts from the clubs will be there with an opportunity to sign them.

    “I will hear some negatives from people saying it won’t work, but we’ve seen a lot more Polynesian players come through and succeed in the NRL.

    Is he saying what I think he’s saying… or just been misquoted?
  5. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    If it's not in the cap, I hope Broncos target some big units that miss out on the NFL. Could potentially make some decent props. I wouldn't expect any of them to make it in a position that requires too much IQ. They could be better athlete versions of the fobs.

    Those polynesians have been playing league or union their whole lives, bit of a difference there.
  7. Sultan Pepper HG Emm

    Haha geez, surely that's cobbled together from something longer?
  8. Sultan Pepper HG Emm

    Mann & Hutchinson off to Bulldogs to join Salmon and Taaffe. Seem like the exact wrong kind of signings for them
  9. jazman84 JM Eightyfour

    They've let both Alamoti and Avarillo go, makes me think they'll play Burton and Crichton in the centres with Sexton and Hutchinson in the halves with Taaffe at Fullback. Could go alright, more likely to be dire though. They need to sort their pack out.
  10. Sultan Pepper HG Emm

    Actually thought the riffs d was a little more fragile than normal last night. Clinical in attack but there were a few holes up the middle.

    God I hate player rating pie es too. Fox did one give Tago an 8, he was all at sea in the first half
  11. Magic AJ Parker

    I'm sure the player ratings are just a NewsLtd troll to drive clicks. Team wins = 7, 8's & 9's, team loses 4, 5's 6's with a couple of outrageous rankings sprinkle in between to cause debate/outrage. They do the same thing with SOO & Australian team predictions.

    Tago's effort on Olam especially was very lame.
    morgieb and Sultan Pepper like this.
  12. Sultan Pepper HG Emm

    Momirovski to super league apparently
  13. Cribbage RG Cribb

    During the State Championship game, Gould kept saying he thought Taafe was a 6 and had been unfairly shoehorned into being a fullback. I reckon we might see Crichton at the back with Taaffe at 6. Hutchinson basically just a backup utility player IMO.

  15. Magic AJ Parker

    Release Crichton and loan them Suaalii for the year as compensation.

    I'd do it.
  16. Toolman TR Man

    Closer to his parents? He's 27 and his work takes him to Sydney all the time already.
  17. Sultan Pepper HG Emm

    It is a bit of a weird one isn't it. Never know peoples personal circumstances though, just read he has 4 kids so maybe the mrs needs a bit of back up looking after them or something.
  18. jazman84 JM Eightyfour

    Michael Jennings ---> Roosters on Train and Trial.
  19. Magic AJ Parker

    I kinda don't mind it. Think it's great to see ex stars still running around in reserve grade, would be awesome as a kid coming through to learn off ex players who have been there and done it and makes it a more compelling argument for fans to go and watch a game IMO. I know Roosters also tried bringing Pearce back as well this year to play in reserves and already have Napa running around in reserve grade.

    If Pearce, Napa and Jennings were running around Wenty Park every Saturday/Sunday arvo I wouldn't miss a game.
  20. jazman84 JM Eightyfour

    If he is in good nick, he might even get a game here and there if they have injuries in the centres and Robbo isn't keen to blood a rookie.
