20/40, are the NRL trying to turn RL into RU?
Have to say i don't like the sound of it. If you are keeping a team pinned inside their own 20 for 5 tackles, why shouldn't you get the benefit? Seems to be offering defending sides an easy 'out'.

Re: Phil Clarke bizzare comments on GB Lions

I don't disagree, but my point is the problem here is not the rules of the game, or their interpretation by referees, or not having "the biff". Of course, having people running the sport who knew their ass from their elbow would be a good positive start.

Re: Phil Clarke bizzare comments on GB Lions

There's nothing wrong with rugby league. The NRL is, IMO, the best TV spectator sport on the planet, and they play to the same rules we do, more or less. And I don't see skilful halves or wingers dying out there.

Re: 2020 Squad numbers announced

Marshall's star certainly rose last year where few others in the side did.I enjoy watching him play, and hope he does well next year.

Re: 2020 Squad numbers announced

I wonder if Marshall is this year's Escaré: given the shirt, but with little opportunity to wear it?

I suppose it all depends on Manfredi's return to fitness. Presumably Lam will start with Marshall on the right and Burgess on the left

So Sammut could not be off-loaded then?
I’d be amazed if Sammutt stays to be honest he seems to me to be in the room marked exit alongside Escare etc
Maybe, but he'll only be going if another club wants him, surely? Otherwise, contracted until the end of 2020.

Re: 2020 Squad numbers announced

I've never seen Hardaker have a good game at centre for anyone.

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

I just read a piece saying much the same in the Guardian. If the concept was on life-support before, after this disastrous tour...

To be fair, Lomax has been one of the very few half-decent performers.
