Re: PNG v GB

Terrible performance, where do we go from here!

Its bad enough that RL management destroyed one of their own brands 20 years ago and then we follow up with this shambles.

Re: Brian Carney: Is Wayne Bennett rugby league's Gerald Ratner?

Coaching was sub par for me, granted Tonga and NZ dominated the PTB (with refs help) but we didn't have any answer over the 3 games. The Southern Hemisphere teams can play the ref,we don't see to be able and did not hold the opposition down to the limit set by the refs.

Re: Bateman escapes punishment for ‘careless high tackle’

Wonder if any NZ players were cited or whatever or is it just open season on GB players?

Re: Tonga v GB Lions spoiler

All credit to Tonga for an excellent performance. GB - off the mark, some poor selections and even poorer performances.

Suprised no discussion about Kendall who was very poor - I did rate him until the Grand Final and he made some odd calls, especially Tonga not clearing the PTB area,

Re: Australian legend Paul Gallen reveals his toughest game... was against Wigan Warriors

Need to get back to that standard, It seems a long time ago with Budgie and Escare having stormers.

Nice to have Gallen's praise.

Re: RFL STATEMENT: CATALANS VS WARRINGTON

I think Wire have got off lightly.
Catalan, as host clb should bear the brunt but even so, Wire fans were out of control and didn't care that their own players' famillies were in that stand.

Re: Wigan Warriors prop Joe Bullock is fit again - and 'craving' a game with England Knights

So Lam had three fit players in Bullock, Greenwood and Summat and after that show v Saints he didn’t pick any of them. Unbelievable. At the very least he if he didn’t think these players were his best selections he could have played the percentages and rested three who played v Salford the week bef...

Re: Time for an Australian referee to take grand final

Poor day for Kendall, normally he is good but he missed a good number of things, all going in Saints favour.

Re: Tom Davies

I'd see others move before Davies (Burgess, Marshall) and Greenwood (Clubb, Isa, Navarette), TBF they have injuries, once fit theyll be OK.

I thought Bullock might be fit for the playoffs?
If Powell isn't 100% then Smithies could do a decent job as defensive hooker.
Has he ever played hooker?
I'm not sure TBH, it would be a risk, only if Powell is not fit. He must start v Salford and we need to find room for Greenwood.
