    The most annoying thing at present is that I try to navigate to another page and it's redirecting to a full page advert between pages on the kennel. It doesn't happen on any site but this one.

    I will see if I can have a word to the site owners. I agree, the ads on mobile are crazy. I mostly try to use my computer with adblock.

    FYI Wipr works beautifully on both mobile and desktop. The only disadvantage is you have to disable it to play video on selected sites including the Dogs and NRL websites - so if you don’t mind taking a few seconds to disable and re-enable it as needed, I find it to be a great solution across the board.

    I'll have to look into it. On my last phone I installed some form of ad blocker and was never able to watch another video from the official Bulldogs site because I couldn't find the ad blocker to uninstall or disable it.

    Wipr is easy mate. Takes a few seconds either way. PM me if you want more.

    PS - I’m referring to iOS and MacOS. I’m sure it’s also OK for Android and/or Windows too, I just haven’t tried it.

    Adblock is great for Chrome, but it does not work on mobile. I think you need to use an adblock browser and bugger that. I suspect most other adblockers on mobile are the same.

    Sorry, bum steer.
    Wipr works for Safari iOS + MacOS and is very effective.
    The one I have installed for Chrome is UBlock and is pretty good so far too.

    I think it’s more a case that Google owns Chrome so actively disrupts ad-blockers because of how it makes its money. Apple cares less about this so ad-blockers in Safari are generally more effective.

    Nasheed here?
    Did this ever get looked at?
    I sometimes can't see content because It is just ads on top of text and it makes the kennel look somewhat dodgy and scammy.
