    Team List 2020 NRL Season – Round 8 – Storm vs. Roosters

    Two refs are better than one, I'm sure of that. There was a lot of talk at first of, see, we don't need two refs, it's fine. But players have been programmed for years to expect a second ref at the ruck, so they behave themselves. At first. And then it creeps in, and one ref can't have eyes...

    Team List 2020 NRL Season – Round 9 – Cowboys vs. Roosters

    Lam's performance watched with interest in Wigan obviously. He did well, and Iku's showing just proved the squad depth the Roosters are able to draw on.

    Rugby League NRL - News, Changes and Ideas !

    I would imagine Warriors fans were pretty fed up with the aftermath of the game all being about what a big deal it was for the oh so important Brisbane Broncos, without whom how would the sport manage, etc etc... :rolleyes: The win was just as vital, if not more so, for NZW.

    Rugby League NRL - News, Changes and Ideas !

    I have a few thoughts about how the game is being officiated at the moment. I don't like the way tacklers have given up any pretence of trying to clear the ruck, knowing they will not be penalised, forcing the dummy-half to reach around them. When the ref calls held, and the defenders continue...

    Rugby League Broncos - New Signings and News

    But you could also say, the Bunnies have a much better squad than Brisbane, and Manly have a much better squad than the Bulldogs. And, of course, well done the Warriors! :D Nice to see Blake Green still has a few tricks in his locker; warmly remembered by all Wigan fans.

    Yeah, might be a start, but doesn't solve your half-back problem.

    Rugby League ESL - Wigan - News, Views and Crews !

    Woo hey! Of course this is great news for us: there isn't a team in the world that wouldn't like to have John Bateman in their squad. Now I only hope that he recovers well and gives the Raiders a grandstand finish. I think it's fair to say they look like they've missed him in the last few weeks.

    Rugby League Round 8 - Saints v Canberra

    Canberra still don't look the force they did last season. 18-0 up at half-time, and unable to put the game to bed. Once again Dufty and Lomax looked the most likely for the Dragons, indeed you could probably say, the only likelies. Hunt and Norman offer nowhere near enough for me.

    Fantastic match. Really hard on the Morris boys to be on the losing side after that showing.

    ESL GI to sign one year deal with Warrington

    65 years of pain! That's how long Warrington fans have been waiting for a championship. They choke more often than Linda Lovelace! GI is the latest in a long list of Aussies who were going to make it happen. Will he have any more success than the others? Time will tell, but I say no.

    Rugby League Round 7 - Panthers vs Rabbitohs: Thursday 25th June 7:50pm @Netstrata Jubilee Stadium

    Best side won. If Cleary hadn't had a rare off-day with the boot... To say the least, your halves combination does not look like championship form right now. I'm not a big fan of Reynolds, but to be fair, he seems to have a string of niggling injuries, and Walker only fires intermittently. I...
