    Official Team List Round 12 v Dragons + Match Discussion

    Sad to say but he’s another Moses Mbye. Might be able to play in different positions but not well in any particular one. I think the coaches he’s had have played a big part in his lack of development.

    Opinion Should Flanno take over now if appointed

    Maybe it’s not up to him. He’s got a job elsewhere at the moment, perhaps he can’t just walk because something better came up. I’m sure he can have input but what’s the benefit of being involved in this rabble, hopefully a lot of it has gone by next season.

    News Flanagan and Sullivan could trade places in latest twist at Belmore

    A player swap between Canterbury halfback Kyle Flanagan and St George Illawarra counterpart Jayden Sullivan has been floated in a bid to solve the playmaking issues at both clubs. The development has put Flanagan’s father, Shane, in an invidious position given he is part of the Dragons’...

    Official Team List Round 12 v Dragons + Match Discussion

    As much as I want Averillo to succeed people need to forget about him playing fullback. He would be a similar style to Dufty, can give a good pass or might score a electrifying try but he won’t be able to defend at the back or organise the defence. He’s made 70 tackles and missed 9 or 10 this...

    Stimson to Super League

    That article gave me a laugh. We also lost “major signing” Brent Naden. Also says he’s only available to clubs with 200,000 pound upwards haha. The salary cap there is 1/3 of ours, as if any club would waste that chunk of their cap on Stimson. He might sign but it would be a very low deal...

    News ‘If he wasn’t the best halfback he wouldn’t play’: Shane Flanagan addresses elephant in the room as Bulldogs call looms

    Daddy Flanagan please accept your son might have been good in lower grades or under 10’s but that doesn’t translate to FG footy. No other coach could get the best out of him but you will, yeah ok. As much as I hate the roosters I think their coach was a pretty good judge and moved him on. If...

    ZDC Preparing to Play Hooker

    The media just carry on about JMK because he’s Benji’s brother. The guy is 26 years old and they talk about him improving. If he was 19 or 20 I’d understand. Based on his rate of improving he should be a good player by the time he’s 45.

    We’re the stupid c**** who offered Dufty a contract. We’re not offering him another one and he’s going elsewhere, I don’t get the hate. We were the only club who offered him a deal, the blame sits with Gould on this one, the player wasn’t becoming a superstar under tbags.

    News Jim Dymock puts his hands up in interest to coach the Bulldogs for 2023 and further

    Dymock isn’t a FG coach. He’s on a similar level to Pay. He won a few games at the back end of a season, if anyone judges him by that they have no idea. That was also in 2011, how many jobs have come up since then and no club has gone near him.

    News Shane Flanagan puts his hand up to lead the basket case Bulldogs

    News ‘Can’t look anywhere else’: Ennis’ passionate Bulldogs plea in huge Flanagan endorsement

    He’s more of a half than a centre or a fullback which some people dream he can become. Whether he’s a first grade half is another question and he’s definitely not a 7.

    News ‘Can’t look anywhere else’: Ennis’ passionate Bulldogs plea in huge Flanagan endorsement

    His son is signed for 23 and the only other halves signed would be Averillo and probably Rajab. My feeling is he’ll try and build a game plan around his son for at least a year while he’s contracted.

    News ‘Can’t look anywhere else’: Ennis’ passionate Bulldogs plea in huge Flanagan endorsement

    The Biggest issue with the bulldogs …

    The biggest issues with the club go back to the end of the Dib era. Then the Andersons wanted to blow the place up and start again. There were other solutions but they thought they were doing the right thing. Those decisions have resulted in years of pain for us and more to come. Apart from...

    Opinion Rd 12 team

    For those saying BBO at 7 he’s another Averillo. He has talent but the coaching staff are killing it by not helping him find his best position and keeping him there. If he’s a 7 (which I doubt) he needs to play NSW cup there.

    Opinion How much of Thompson’s salary are you willing to pay

    I hate bringing it up again but the Anderson era included signing Barrett plus Thompson and Cotric. There’s a lot of work to clean those players you mentioned.

    Averillo

    I kind of feel for him. Imagine being coached by Pay and Barrett. I’m sure he does have talent but he needs a decent coach to know what it is and develop it. We don’t have that at our club.
