Adam is a wonderful example of how a player should go about his business in the NRL


He's pretty hosed regardless though. He'll always be known as a rapist and I don't see how he gets any sort of job related the game going forward.

I dont like his chances of winning an appeal tbh. More details are coming out about the evidence against him. Pretty bad.

Really good game last night. I am still chuckling at Olam not passing to JAC.

That said it was probably an obstruction so it should be moot

It was just bad luck combined with the warriors putting in

Once we had Scott defending with a broken rib and Havili gassed as poo poo defending in the back row (He is normally a middle third player) we were in huge trouble

That said we are way too slow. Raps has been a great servant, still makes great yardage but his finishing is average at best now.

Woohoo, I got RLWC grand final tickets for myself, my wife, our daughter, and my dad. I am sure it was a good idea to wake up at 4am my time to spend £300 on this purchase because as we all know the international game is the highest and most prestigious level of Rugby League Football.

Seriously though any of you goons planning (hoping) to be there? Assuming travel restrictions have eased and my family can actually go, maybe I can trick them into joining me for a goonmeet with whichever of you happens to be in Manchester for the grand final.

I'm dreaming of it but I don't hold out much hope for it

On the other hand I've now bought diamond tickets for the whole Brisbane magic round for me and a mate to get drunk for an entire weekend and heckle everyone so idk I don't make sensible life choices

$299 for the whole weekend. Was going to get a hotel for us in the city (so we wouldn't wake up iajwife and iajunior when we wander in at midnight each night) but the rates were insane; just going to ship those two off to her sister's for the weekend and have the house to ourselves. Ubering in and out isn't expensive.

I know super coach victories don't mean much but I was 60 points behind with 1 player to go yesterday he was playing so poo poo I turned it off at half-time.

My opponent had the C on papy was home for all money.

Well after 5 rounds I gotta say it's a good thing the Bulldogs exist to probably save us from wooden spoons this year.

Turbo and a few others are meant to return this week so maybe Sea Eagles can turn the season around now...

The most hilarious/soul-crushing thing I've ever read

Vagabundo

Ya like Little Wayne?


Imagine Nonu playing for the Tigers.

In 2008, he became the first-choice 12 for the All Blacks, developed an exceptional passing game, and developed a solid boot, while maintaining his ability to be a consistent line-breaker. Between 2008 and 2015, he became an All Black centurion and won back-to-back World Cups.


I think he made the right choice.

Its pretty funny going through some of the incompetency from the various teams. Needing to pay the value of a players contract can cause some wacky situations like the Roosters and the Raiders both chipping in for Todd Payten to play for the tigers.

This one though

2017 - CEO Justin Pascoe tells young gun fullback Ryan Papenhuyzen that we are resigning James Tedesco. Papenhuyzen signs with Melbourne Storm, and weeks later Tedesco signs with the Roosters. He doesn't backflip this time. (Source: https://threader.app/thread/1171721362924138497)

Whoops

Somehow Josh Addo-Carr going to the Storm despite wanting to stay didn't rate a mention, nor did Beau Ryan both wanting to stay and being wanted, but somehow we could not manage the logistics of getting a contract to him.

Broncos v Panthers was a way better game than I expected. Was planning to die during a 60+ thrashing but it was close and hard fought right to the end. Would have been great to watch as a neutral.

Even as a broncos fan I didn't mind the loss. A win would have been loving amazing but I'm just so pleased they showed some ticker for a change.
