Re: Brian Carney: Should Super League salary cap be cut to £1m?

This translates to me as SKy want to cut our funding and trying to get their mouthpiece to normalise the idea

Re: Sammut leaves...

Its disappointing he didnt get more of a run in the side i think his opportunity was missed due to injury but i suppose if we are keeping shorrocks (and i believe lam likes him) then there is absolutley no need for sammut. French at 6 is an interesting one - it could work if we dont play split halve...

Re: Leeds Rhinos captain Trent Merrin gives club a massive lift ... Rhinos confirm Merrill departure & Prior signature

I think leeds have possibly the worst record in terms of "big name signings" they've rarely come and set the world alight

eastwood
galloway
merrin
burgess to an extent

most of looked like they want to leave or havent lived up to the hype

This season SL may end up being a breath of fresh air, lots of NRL players making a move before they are past it.
Agreed the quality of the league this year has really gone up

Re: Coach 2021?

We have no obligation surely to promise him a coaching role. Surely he or anyone gets jobs like that on merit. He May have to start at Hunslet via Pia and West Wales before any thought of a Wigan role. Best man for the job it should be not old boys. If he has the skills then good, if he hasn’t we s...

Re: Starting XII and Interchange

nice topic, but with Manfredi I’d rather ease him in this year I know he had injury issues and as a professional sports team we shouldn’t have allowances to do this but if managed correctly and his up changes he can grow to be a GB winger at least for a few years. He is talent and worth keeping and...

Re: Coach 2021?

I'm sure that Sean isn't being considered as a first team coach just yet but it would be reassuring to think that he's being considered and trained up for the role eventually. If so then why not organise some stints with NRL teams (Wests sand Souths spring to mind) to pick up as wide a range of exp...

Re: SHOT CLOCK ADJUSTMENTS FOR 2020 SEASON

417 passes and 650 tackles, that's either a lot of scooting, or many 2nd and 3rd man tackle being counted twice. Anyone know for sure how tackles are counted? basically if your involved in the tackle in any capacity at the point the player is held then it goes down in your tackle count - its part o...
