Best part of Jennings signing with the Eels

Michael Jennings in 2011 posted:

"I don't hate the Parramatta players, just the team they represent,"

"If you come through the Penrith juniors, you're brought up to hate Parra. That's how I was brought up and I'm sure it's still going on."

They also signed him for 4 years, and he is 27. They also signed Watmough for 4 years, so they're nothing if not optimistic

Jennings and the Eels should be a fun story.

Meanwhile who knows what's going to happen with the Roosters, at least I can lower my expectations for 2016 now.

You've lost Maloney and Jennings, who are both good players but with noticeable weaknesses. You'll miss Maloney's kicking and organising (especially Pearce) and Jennings's explosiveness when he is in form. RTS is a huge loss though and that is easily going to hurt more than all the rest combined.

Jayden Nikorima is a big signing though and he'll be important for the Roosters in time. Copley is a solid replacement centre. Joe Burgess has pretty big wraps on him but one of the SL experts might have to give a proper lowdown. He looked good in the tests and WCC last year.

They're definitely weaker than last season but I don't think they'll be out of the eight, especially since they still have their tremendous forward pack.

I watch a lot of SL and Burgess is indeed a very good winger. I'm especially happy at his signing because Wigan lose his services!

Maloney's kicking is not something the Roosters can do without IMO and Pearce is uneven enough that whoever pairs with him is going to have a lot of work to do to get things running smoothly in the halves.

Also, my rugby league fandom is young enough that I can't really imagine Leeds without Sir Kev so I am afraid for both the teams that I follow :ohdear:

Luke Keary storms out as Russell Crowe lashes Rabbitohs for poor 2015 - report

Russell Crowe has reportedly made his feelings clear about Souths needing to lift their game after a disappointing defence of their NRL title last year.

Seven News in Australia reported that Crowe hosted a team bonding night at his Coffs Harbour property, where he didn't hold back with his views, lashing the squad for their 2015 efforts that saw them finish seventh and crash out of the opening round of the playoffs.

Souths won the 2014 title, but co-owner and Hollywood star Crowe was clearly disappointed in their efforts trying to back that up.

The report suggested Crowe was highly critical of Keary who reportedly stormed out of a drinking session.

Crowe took to Twitter on Wednesday to

"Luke Keary situation entirely my fault," Crowe tweeted.

"A bit of banter that went too far. I've apologised. He is a natural leader and great for our club."

Keary, who has a year left on his Souths contract, has recently been linked to a move to the Gold Coast Titans.

Souths have bolstered their ranks this year by the return of giant English forward Sam Burgess after his brief dabbles with rugby that included playing in England's disastrous World Cup campaign.

Souths may have placed seventh without Burgess but that's better than England did with him.

It's about finding that next group of core players we can win with in the next 6, 8, 10 years. Let's face it, it's hard for 20-, 21-, 22-year-olds to lead an NHL team. Look at the playoffs.

That quote is from fucking 2018. Fuck you Jim

Yeah it's no Monaghan, that fucker literally had his dick in a dogs mouth.

Ranking of poo poo he did wrong in that video:

1. Sexual Assault of the lesbian by kissing her
2. pissing himself/her couch
3. fake humping the dog with his piss filled shorts still on

Also a contender depending on what the gently caress he was talking about - the aboriginal comment :confused:
