    News Foran. Canterbury bulldogs withdraw offer.

    Watched him play since under 6s was a cat then is cat now and will always be a cat. Lays down injured in every tackle. Done it all his life. Would be a stain on a Bulldogs jersey.

    Opinion Turning point

    Whoever gave the penalty away after Scott got injured turned the game.We virtually didn’t touch the ball for next 10 fo 15 minutes.Jackson and Foran should have demanded we didn’t give a penalty away there. Perhaps they did and some fool didn’t listen.

    News The Bulldogs have a huge problem on their hands with fears star recruit Luke Thompson could cut his NRL stint short.

    He goes ok. Had half a dozen games to show what he’s got. Good on his feet with some speed. Only positive to his game appears to be a quick play the ball. At this stage I think we can spend his money elsewhere for better value. Not overly concerned if he leaves.

    Spinal Adjustment

    We need 5 new players. 1. Burton 2. B Smith 3. Staines 4. Front rower 5. Half back Out Foran unless he stays on small 1 year contract, Tolman, Montoya, Holland Tui Katoa. Include in top 30 Schoup, Tass , Biondi. Shop Lewis, C Smith, Remis Smith & DWZ

    Official Round 15 - Bulldogs vs Warriors - Discussion Thread

    Schoup played in a trial game and ran strong. Was ok physically. It’s knowing how to read in defence where the young ones flounder. But in the scheme of things if we don’t get a couple of wins and are going to get the spoon we have nothing to loose with giving these guys a taste.
  12. Longtimedog

    Opinion Tass and Katoa

    Only seen highlights of Schoup plus the trial game . I think he held his own physically in that game. I hold out more hope for him. He could be one out of the bag.

    Opinion Tass and Katoa

    Our better young players are currently in 16s and 18s. Harold Matt's were leading the comp before covid.
  14. Longtimedog

    Opinion Tass and Katoa

    I've watched a lot of Harold matts so ball 20s and reserves. Believe me they r nothing special. The top 30 has to be filled by someone. Averillo is the goods even in schoolboy football you could see.
  15. Longtimedog

    Tolman and Napa

    Well said. Halves can't play when we have no go forward or quick play the balls. Decisions for a half much easier on the back of a good run and quick play the ball. That's our biggest problem.
  16. Longtimedog

    Tolman and Napa

    Nappa played one of his better games yesterday. His hit ups were much better.
  17. Longtimedog

    Opinion Tass and Katoa

    Unfortunately they are both worse than Holland and Montoya .

    Sad thing is . As bad as he was he is still better than Holland.

    Hit list 2021

    1. Hoppa 2. DWZ 3. Cotric 4. Reluctantly 1 of Smith/ Lafai. ( Schoup) 5. Go all out for JAC 6. Averillo 7. Burton Reserves Meaney, Okonbur. Shop Lewis. Don't resign Cogger, Foran if he is injured again, Tiu Katoa or Tass.
  20. Longtimedog


    Big and fast. Great coming through juniors. Only very young. One to watch for sure. Best prop coming through since John Kite who couldn't make the step up to NRL. He takes a lot of stopping when running the ball. Reminds me of an old player by the name of James Pickering during Super League .

    Averillo can create in attack but was caught out in defence. Meaney not up to it. Jacko offers nothing any more. One good pass for the game. Renouf has to start over Nappa. Katoa to start with JMK to be 14. Harper will never be the answer. Averillo offers more but really needs to work on his...

    Jesse Ramien Consolidated Rumour Thread

    We need to sign Ramien and Korisou. Currently we have 2 reserve grade sides. Although you need depth, we need to offload fringe NRL players and replace with our best from 20s and the couple of marque signings. Means nothing in the end winning Canterbury Cup.

    Opinion Never been as despondent over the last 45 years

    Doesnt matter who the coach is when you have a bunch of purely, honest players such as Hoppa, Jackson,Tolman,Elliott,Marshall, Lewis and Cogger.They are incapable of any attacking flair. They may improve the situation but nothing major can happen without a change of cattle unfortunately. Start...

    Realistic centre signings

    Remis to centre and grab Oates who only signed for 1 year. Though he already knocked us back this year. Oates,Smith and okubur if he can learn to catch and stay on his wing. We would get great field position with them bringing the ball back. Should be able to score from and defend bombs as well...

    50 50 I reckon Lewis longer kicking game better defence Lewis ,poor pass, 3 bad kicks V cogger 2 kicks that went dead and a bad dropped ball. Could go either way who gets dropped for Foran. Pays problem is who is going the worse [emoji31]
