You mean Dinkum 1, Nasheed 8
Lol
As in number of previous and/or current accounts on The Kennel?

Yeah, I’d agree with that.
Nice to finally agree on something :-).

Baaaaaahhhh :-) :-) :-)
The very fact you think I have anything to do with that bloke shows how far off the scent you are.

So since you mentioned ‘defective skills’, how appropriate - looking in the mirror are we? :-) :-) :-)

Agree. And I wish it wasn’t - sincerely.
Would be great if the other fella and his multiple accounts stopped it all. I’ve made the offer - up to him to accept.

Honestly doesnt bother me, its like the kennel has to mirror the club. Going from bad to worse. Still love them both though.

Hey be careful, every time someone signs up in the northern hemisphere people will assume it's me and u get banned.
Stay straight, keep eyes on those around you and don't share food and water.

Now that's out of the way.
The team is ok. My main issue is composition and what roles they are playing.
I personally think Silva was more dynamic at the back, but patterns is a popular player around here so it's just preference. Either way.

Utai. Hard to judge. Was amazing first couple of years, but then other teams solved him and he couldn't make reserve grade (why didn't he move to centre?).

Lamb was a goalkicker, so do you need el Masri!?
This is preference. Personally I would take Barba and his attack there and cop a 70% goal kicker in Lamb, as opposed to a slow small winger who kicked at 80. But again, preference.

This next bit is more about team composition and roles.
I'd swap Ennis for SBW because Hetherington could go 80mins, and probably Mason for Jackson. Off the bench it's more punch. darren Smith was utility value so perhaps having him on the bench and finding a new centre is an idea too. A lot of people have been talking about Holland lately, due to his line break record, although SBW might be able to play centre?

you pumped about Thommo!? Or is it too big a super league loss?

Greetings,

Another one from this side of the world eh?
Where are you from?

Apologies for the lateness in replying. Been mental here recently.

Liked your challenges, so let's go through them......

Has to be Patten at FB for me. I'm old fashioned and liked preferred my number 1s to be a safe last line of defence and solid under the high ball. Which I thought LP was

Still has to Utai and El Masri. Why? Utai for 2 or 3 seasons was like a ox near the line and had some pace. Don't know what his try scoring rate was but I bet it was over 1 in 3 in his first couple of seasons.

El Masri is in the there just for his goalkicking. Get your point about Lamb being a successful kicker but El Mas has won us so many games over the years with his kicks, he had to be in there for me.

Has Ennis in there with the intention of swapping him with Hetherington. It's a while since Heth played and I think the games got quicker and could see both halfbacks, number 9 and Ennis swapping round the pivot roles.

As for Mason and SBW. Left them out just for bitterness reasons nothing else.

Darren Smith has to be in there somewhere for me and couldn't find him a place anywhere else just because of his offloads and change or pace and getting the outside him away.

Tommo is going be class for the dogs. Built and plays like James Graham. Plus does long stints. Very fit and mobile for a frontrower! And sod SupaDupa League it's of a poor standard. Nothing near the NRL like some think over here.

Thoughts then?

PS....no ones getting my food and water in this lockdown life.

The northern hemisphere is not the issue Nasheed.
It's frauds like you who pretend you're in Sydney when you're in Europe.
How convenient that leeds_doggie's account is brand new and allegedly from the UK...

GeeZus, outlawyering has really burnt you hard. Couldn't even stick to your own olive branch.
So now Leeds dog is an Estonian?
Yesterday you said Abu was my friend. So he's Estonian too!?
Also said the mods are my friends. They Estonian?
Everyone's an Estonian to you! Estonians everywhere controlling the Kennel.

And do I sound like an Estonian to you?
What's more believable? That I'm an eastern European posting on an Aussie forum or a street rat from Granville, raised in the rough streets of Breakfast point. A past that built my character. Where I learnt to shank, smooth talk bitches and the law.
In those days, it was needed for survival.

this whole paranoia is amusing. The funniest thing is I've often talked Arabic on the forum.

Ha ha - all good mate, I’m not getting sucked back into that conversation.

So you’re from Glasgow originally, eh?
Whereabouts?

How did you come to follow a footy team across the other side of the world?

Nasheed here,
Bit of nostalgia to buy time till round 3, whenever that may be.

Just wondering what everyone's team of the last 30 years is?

the only time is they have to have had a full season at minimum with us and you'll pick a team to WIN, so you can pick a fullback as a winger like I have, and a 5/8 to hooker as I have etc.

1 Rod Silva
2 Ben Barba
3 Kerrod Holland
4 Josh Morris
5 Reimis Smith
6 Braith Anasta
7 Ben Sherwin
8 Roy Asotasi
9 Terry Lamb
10 Willie Mason
11 James Graham
12 Josh Jackson
13 Greg Eastwood
-
14 Dean Pay
15 Sonny Bill Williams
16 Willie Mason
17 Gary Connolly

Fairly standard I know, except I know that everyone is surprised at Terry Lamb getting the number 9 spot.

I thought about it and we have never truly had a great hooker. We got rid of cook before he blossomed. And we had herherington who was more a Matt Ballinn type and not attacking like the new breed of hooker.
We have had plenty of halves so I thought I would utilise one at nine.
Your missing our all star players from the 2008 season..

Great team mate nearly identical to my team, someone who knows his footy but i might of put Thurston on the bench even though he didnt play his best footy with the dogs he was a dog and will be an immortal. Barba or Patten i couldnt decide and Andrew Ryan instead of Britt
