Hopate eats up heaps of meters running it out of our own half.
Meaney is quick but not a hard yards guy.
On Jackson I still think he is an above average player but no longer the elite player he was.

Idiotic decision to let the Morris boys go, well not to offer them a 2 season contract.
Brett & Josh playing on base salary for the...
Talk about flogging a dead horse. This thread appears every season about this time.
No way, Josh had his good times with us but no way is he the answer to our problems.
Des sued alright.
But it never went to judgement.
The club settled, reportedly for the full terms of the contract.
You do remember that the club sacked Des right?
And still had to pay Des the 2 years of his new contract that was never taken up, because the club...
Defence first two games was ok.
Manly were way too good for us tonight.
But yes we have looked clueless in attack.
Lewis doesn't have it.
Remis playing shit at centre is pure and simple a coaching issue.
Ouch 7 try drubbing.
Manly were way to good tonight but boy have we gone backwards over the covid - 19 lockdown break.
Come on boys!!
br careful what you wish for. Now you said that we will get that prick Sutton for 30% of the remaining games this season.
I didn't know about this, just looked up. Only Smith's wife right?
Yeah I'm not worried about it.
I'm certainly not going to be lectured by anti vax nut jobs.
If you don't want to get your kids vaccinated that is...
no jab, no play & no pay is a well known doctrine in this nation.
Sorry (not sorry) anti vax nut jobs can tell their story walking.
Foran will take the ball to the line (unlike Lewis) so if we can get some of the forwards running hard at the defensive line, and they don't drop...
I thought Crichton went ok the first two games, Smith was average at centre however I'm happy with that team.
good point, it happened after 01/03 so they are entitled to jobkeeper.
Question given the staff have been stood down who do you think would be/should be doing all the stuff you mentioned?
No the not for profit status is governed by the Australian Taxation act 1936.
Plenty of non for profit operations would have huge capital reserve...
100% all season, come on let's jump on the bankwagon boys!! We started the season good in defence but not much idea on attack. Foran back on the...

I don't think Pay can do much with our current squad, which is, lets be honest well below average.

Fuck off Todd you useless prick.
The fool made Rugby League much weaker.
Loving the hate for McCracken, traitorous c***!!
Also loved when he was declared bankrupt in 2013 after his "30 million dollar property empire"...
Which spastic Orangutan suggested these two to run the NRL?
Whenever NRL starts up again there is going to be a lot less money in the economy &...
Time & time again this happens.
NRL requires a club tp sack players only for another club to sign them later at a discounted price.
She certainly has the kiss of death about her.
The decision to delay the decision on TV rights deal for Rugby has resulted in the auditors unable...
Is that flog Gerrard Sutton still getting paid?
One small consultation is that Berrie & Gerrard Sutton will hopefully get a 100% pay cut.
I have no doubt our great club will survive.
Ultimately I like tens of orher supporters would be prepared to put our hands in our pockets to...
fuck no, we we can't live as proud bulldogs!! I don't wana live.
Man there will be more to follow for sure.
I read the Leques club has already stood down 400 plus staff.
"When you are going through hell, keep going"
Stay safe & healthy everone, and look after any & all of your elderly relatives....
This of serious concern.
The NRL did have a rainy day fund, but they handed it all back to the clubs.
Now it's pissing down.
Unless they get bailed out by government the...
The NRL will be bankrupt in 3 months so I wouldn't worry about it.
Averillo looks good.
Yeah he's not really doing anything.
Lewis loves a hospital pass.
Cancel the season, this is shit.
I would love for the NRL to go belly-up.
They are a corrupt horribly managed organisation.
The game will be rebuilt by the clubs, supporters of...
Yeah herd the same.
Just read the restrictions the French government has put in place.
This thing is unbelievable.
Best comment mate.
Almost 100% will happen now you said it.
I can't believe those two fucktards blew up a $2m revenue stream for the club.
Also if there are further restrictions on public gatherings by...
They are girls, not 18. One is only 16.
That is the issue..
If they were 18, no issue.
But they aren't all adults are they? That is the issue.
Maybe about Lewis, I would like to see Hoppa used one off the ruck.
I think he would create more opportunities in attack.
He seems to run fast enough in defence when Parra made the break (off a a knock-on) last night.
So call me crazy but I would like to see Lewis move the centre but still be used for kicking and use Hoppa as a running 5/8 ?
defence was good, but not much there in attack for us.
First game of the season so let's hope it clicks better next game.
Hoppa had two when he caught a couple of kicks from Lewis. Other then that I can't think of any either.
We never looked like scoring a try tonight (Elliott got close) because the speed of moving the ball from the ruck was so slow.
And Lewis doing...
I also thought he was shit.
He got two good offloads from Hoppa when Hoppa caught the ball from a Lewis kick.
Did nothing with those chances.
3 - Nappa
2 - Hoppa (gotta send more bombs his way)
1 - Britt
This is the point, this is as good as it gets with Lewis as a halfback.
We can't expect him to do things he simply cannot do.
Same old story our attack has looked like a 1922 tractor. The one with the steel plate back wheels.
True, but Parramatta have dominated field position so I feel like we are reliant on a Parramatta error to build any type of pressure in attack.
Lewis doesn't offer much in attack does he.
Haha....Parramatta keeping up their long held tradition of being massive dumb c***.
Has Hoppa put on some bulk or what?
First points. Forwards holding up well so far.
Need better kicks than that Lewis.
Haha....Brown you stupid fat c***.
Fuck you fingers you rotten c***.
Giddy-up, let's go boys!!
I haven't read through the thread.
Does anyone know how the girls are?
Ready to get back on the Kennel big time with 1st game of the season.
But pissed myself laughing when this was the forum @ the top of the queue....
No that loss of $4,474,518 is the consolidated entity.
There is $15 million in depreciation so the leagues club is cash flow positive but there...
Where do you think we will finish the 2020 season ladder wise?
Also with regard to Melbourne (and I hate them because I live in Melbourne) would...
Agree he is not NRL standard.
good for 2020 for sure. Hoping we can get to 13 wins this season!!
$450k to $500k.
Agree, the competition is more uneven than ever.
Gee the NRL salary cap is working well.
Merry Christmas boys and girls to you and your families, stay safe.
I thought the club only has $400k left under salary cap for 2020?
Agree what other club would be prepared to anything near that amount.
Bottom line he is doing well to keep himself employed!!!
Doubt he is ever going to get the chance as an NRL head coach.
The NRL and it's bullshit salary are so corrupt and broken that it is now beyond fixable by the NRL.
The Australian and/or NSW government should...
That's what we dogs do "cheap the salary cap"
Roosters work around the salary cap.
Will the NRL require West Tigers to stand Reynolds down?
I know the NRL came up with a rule once De Belin was charged with rape and had to be...
How??? De Bellin has had the book thrown at him and is charged with rape along with many other charges.
When the fuck is Elliott's contract up?
Can't see Jackson playling lock.
Also Katoa will be in the 17.
No....but that's what I'm saying.
Fuck up big enough and they give you money to go away.
Rae Rae will be whistling all the way to the bank before...
To be fair she was born in Wagga.
I don’t know, she could be very smart!!!
Looks likely Rugby Australia will have to give her a big bag full of money to get rid of her. Probably...
Maybe, I don't know. But I suspect it was a large settlement in terms of $$$$
Rugby Australia have proven to be totally incompetent.
Not sure one follows the other. In any event the payment terms may be protracted.
I don't know if it was $8 million or even close, but I can't see...
No they are not.
Why would Folau agree to the settlement not on his terms? He raised $3 million to cover his legal costs and in the end this is an...
yes, I am a lawyer so I know what a NDA is.
Point is "if" that is the financial settlement that is a huge win for Folau and is in excess of all...
Read the respective "apologies" they are not equal.
How does the NRL reconcile these examples of Inglis & Burgess where they seem to have granted salary cap exemption to Souths for side agreements...
Reports (not denied by RA) settlement is $8 million.
If true that is a huge win for Folau and with the apology a vindication for Folau in his...
not a rort, but a handicap as it has turned out.
