    It's more that they are ridiculously inconsistent with it. Seen ones over that weekend that were more impactful then Ponga's but would have drawn a cheer from the crowd if there were a good one, take the Manly/Roosters game for example.

    I know they are thinking in terms of the future of the game and in 50 years time but really it's about as grey of an area as any grey area of officiating rules in our game.

    Straight swap for Hoy. No point fighting it at the judiciary our players never get let off even if there wasn’t anything in it.

    I remember watching KP kick goals in round 1 thinking that he had really improved.
    Not sure what happened round 2.

    No way in hell Mann should go to fullback. Straight swap with Hoy and Ponga.

    He did in under 16s and maybe under 18s, but only a few since. I think he was one of the ones training for it in the off season though.

    Crowned Dally M as well.

    7 deaths and we are about to go into full country lockdown where the government have total control. Then will remain in control of a large percentage of the population after this as well with so many in debt.

    Worked a treat for the media and government.

    Not a surprise, but I am absolutely gutted. Both at the virus' effect but also at the fact the NRL has been run so poorly that it's been dependant on playing on these past weeks for its own survival. Fingers crossed we can be watching the Knights and other teams play again soon enough.

    This is just unbelievable. I’d be happy to see them play again! Hopefully the NRL and Government can sort it out as soon as we show any signs of turning a corner. Whenever that may be.

    Most of the Clubs will be lucky to survive, including ours, with no licensed club income for some time.

    As if we are not in enough trouble with infection rates sky rocketing overnight, our dumb Government allows 4 cruise ships to dock in Sydniey. The first shp, Ruby Princess, has reported 48 confirmed cases on day one.

    The NRL has been run poorly since the News/ARL merger, which is funny because the whole point of having the two biggest media organisations in the country was supposed to be for the benefit of the NRL, except everything was botched and they were behind the times in all aspects of running the competition and negotiating rights for everything. Even David Gallop said during that time it operated on a spend everything and make $0 profit basis. But it's just snowballed to the present really.
