The Warriors are not a car that'll break down 100m down the road. They'll manage it well before that.

Oh yeah, I have zero expectations this year. I'd say they'd have done well to make the play-offs, regardless of how deep into it they get.

Some woman attended the Catalan Gay Haters v. Castleford game draped in a rainbow flag, but Catalan officials were triggered and wanted to create a safe space for special snowflake Israel Folau, and demanded she remove it twice. Evidently, she told them to gently caress off both times.

Catalan has denied doing such a thing, but gently caress them, they can go suck a dick.

Kalyn Ponga’s contract allows him to swap to union should he want a tilt at making the All Blacks and play at the 2023 RWC.

He will be entering a congested area of the field though.

So apparently about 1/3 of the players' retirement fund is missing because the NRL was using that money for operational costs for the last 2 or 3 seasons or so. I'm sure the players are thrilled to hear this right now.

They were supposed to be putting money into the account, but weren't, from the looks of it.

It'll be interesting to see what Super Rugby will look like after this. I'm guessing some sort of NZ/Aus/Japan situation, and with the provincial unions in NZ expected to merge, the NRC sides being invited into the NZ provincial comp to make up numbers.

Tim Lafai at the Dragons has done... something. It involves the police too, so fairly serious.

I am disgusted that the avatars I purchased for iajanus, Jono C and Smorgasbord for my own amusement have, even in a small way, enabled an abuser. I wish this poo poo had come to light earlier, and I am disgusted with myself for having contributed towards that shitcunt’s lifestyle in any way.

So what the gently caress happened today with the Warriors and sponsorship? Supposedly Telstra was going to force Vodafone out as the club's major sponsor, but all of a sudden backed down.

Telstra and V'Landys decided that there was no room in RUGBAH LEEG for any telco sponsor other than Telstra, so they demanded that the Warriors sever their 20+year relationship with Vodafone, trying to make them Vodagone from TELSTRA RUGBAH TELSTRA TELSTRA LEEG TELSTRA.

Basically, the overwhelming response was Vlandys can go eat a gently caress and Telstra can join him.
