    Damn. It looked bad watching it live but I thought he was ok because he came back on.

    Maybe the comp being delayed until July is a blessing for us?

    Bad news for Barnett. Hope he bounces back strong and the mental health is holding up ok. Just goes to show how much these players can run the gauntlet at times. A lot of life left to live post footy and it’s sometimes a matter of millimeters that dictates what the quality of that life will be.

    Well atleast he miss's no footy and he'd be up there with the top people we could trust to rehab properly.

    Brailey will more than likely be out until 2021 if it was an ACL tear and the delay in the season is a blessing for Barnett’s injury. Couldn’t have happened at a better time, if you’d even call in positive.

    Roosters can’t start a season 0 2. Wouldn’t be fair, good thing Robinson is sorting it all out.

    Haha thought the same, and the Sharks being 0-2 means Buzz will push for it in the media.

    Still whoever wins the comp, it’ll be more legit then the 2016 Sharks premiership

    Pearce must be in his old mans ear, because he’s come out and said it not going to happen.

    Thinking about it, I wouldn't care if we had to replay games against the Warriors and Wests because we'd beat them again, and we'd get a few more games in.

    The bubble idea is going to be very interesting, 3 months is a long tine to be away from your family, especially for the other half who has to look after the kids etc. At least they will have each other, might be hard to get up for a game or two. Sounds like it has to be done if they want to keep making a decent wage into the future.

    The mate a couple of doors up does 4 weeks away in WA and I think 10 days home and she hates it , 5 kids and by herself for four weeks straight .. He says he doesn't mind it except he misses a lot that happens with his kids and has given it away after two years … 3 months in one stretch would be hard , 9 months after they finished and got home the NRL would be awash with new babies lol.
