    News Bulldog Lafai keen on Barrett NRL rebuild

    Just adds to the mystery doesn’t it Right centre is normally the stronger defender as teams attack better to the left.So now Averillo has to forge a new combination on the right.Lol I give up and will just drink my beer

    Official Round 12 - Bulldogs vs Eels - Discussion Thread

    Was told he was to slow on the weekend and Sue had a week off with a knee injury and was between Renouf and Ogden to make way this week. Don’t know why we change a winning team but that’s business.

    Official Round 12 - Bulldogs vs Eels - Discussion Thread

    Same with Averillo’s defence but maybe a late change.I just wonder the reason why we signed him at his age but am thinking he will get more metres than the others.Not that I think that will win games but smarter men than you and I make those decisions.

    News (ABC) Knights ban most Bulldogs fans from attending game

    Knights fans are very passionate and verbal but thankfully there was only 3.5 k of them there and the rain and the loss made them leave without having to listen to their excuses.Every time Ponga made a mistake I told the supporters around me that was another million dollars down the drain lol.

    I was at the game today as well and agree with all you said,the conditions in the 2nd half were against the dogs.I thought Napa had his best game of the year and Lewis had a strong all round game.Was never going to be easy for Wakeham to play in those conditions but hopefully he will learn from...

    Our dummy halves have to kick more often to take pressure off Lewis and to keep opposition from just targeting him.Both JMK and Katoa kicked in first half but neither in the second and Lewis doesn’t have the experience to handle a game plan on his own. Am sure the coach will have highlighted...

    Official Round 11 - Bulldogs vs Knights - Discussion Thread

    No argument here with Jacko but Mariner was bought as a ball playing back rower and that is far from the truth.The team desperately need a ball player out wide to bring the outside attackers into play and that includes the fullback.As it is other coaches only need to bring their centre up and in...

    Smith played his best football when he was on the wing.....outside Holland. That was our best combination we have had and neither player has been the same since.He got disinterested last year playing outside Hoppa because he saw little ball and then wanted to play centre

    He has two players outside him that he never uses.Is a ball hog and keeps stepping back into ruck.Is a runner only not a ball player.Has not passed a ball to an outside man and seldom even off loads for 2nd phase.

    Am I the only one who saw Meaney run down a skinny blind and when going into touch threw the ball to a Dragon player.That was a huge fuck up as we were 12 in front and early tackle.Also the 2 non contested bombs that both led to tries..Fullbacks are expected to at least contest them.
