    Time for you to admit that other people can have opinions based on hard facts vs your dribble.

    Stability is everything, and Widdop has had to deal with at least a dozen halfbacks since joining the club back in 2014.

    Of course, good coaching structures are essential, so it's no surprise he thrived in Melbourne.

    I couldn't disagree with your post any more.

    Two points:

    1. given the perilous state of international rugby league, it doesn't make a difference if the Kangaroos don't gel because nine out of ten times, the team will comprehensively flog all opposition.

    2. Marshall was coached by Bennett...better coach, better systems for him to thrive.

    Although with limited opportunities, it didn't surprise he did well.

    All your previous personalities argued much better than you
    What a week imitation of the mighty Vas you really are and not a patch on Ruby or Sigurd
    In your twisted world you and Widdop are actually kindred spirits and you don’t even realise it.
    Laughable really.

    Point 1
    No they don't....you do realise in the 4 nations matches, we have been beaten by the kiwis REGULARLY, they were the WORLD CHAMPIONS, not us... in the majority of years.... till the last one.

    And that was with the supposed wonderful cronk....smith....and the grub slater in the team.

    So no.....we are not a lay down winner....go check the last 5 yrs...the kiwis are ahead ...lol!

    Point 2.
    Come off it. The reason is:
    Marshall did NOT have to put up with MRS Widdop, the f..ing sook of a pretender for our on field leader.

    FMD....the guy is a Sook.....with a capital S.
    He can't play with any number 7.

    Put him back to fullback then.
    Make the c##t run!

    You seriously do not realise our captain is a quasi leader?

    Shit I hope Jimmy Graham takes f...ing control.

    Meltdowns have been more regular than they used to be.

    So, you of course agree Woods is the best?

    No, you don't.

    Widdop was very very close behind Smith in winning the overall Dally M. If not for missing 6 games from injury you'd have to think he could have been up there with Smith

    You don't just fluke a Dally M

    My reply as follows:

    1. Are you certain of that? I mean, I had a 'squiz' at Test results between Australia and NZ since the the turn of the century, and the tally is 30 to 7 in the Kangaroos favour.

    So, I'm a bit bemused by your "regular" claim. Yes, the Kiwis won a World Cup (2008?), but this the ONLY occasion that the Kangaroos have lost anything of note since 1978 (against the French).

    2. Actually the immaturity of your palpable dislike towards Widdop doesn't deserve a detailed reply, however, I will remind you that any team with two five eighths under the tutelage of an incompetent coach is doomed to fail.

    Why bother replying to a single minded, ignorant fool. Its simply not worth the time and effort when one is so blind to obvious facts.

    How so?
    Surely if true Moylan will go straight to 5/8 as that is the position that would be vacant and Moylan has played there at club and SOO level
    The FB spot at Sharks will between Holmes & Dugan

    The Mole on Twitter suggested that James Roberts wants out of the Broncos. If true we should absolutely chase him, we missed out last time but he was mates with Ben Hunt and perhaps Mundine has some influence and can bring him here.

    I love a good Roberts to Dragons rumour. Ive heard it a few times over the years and always gets me excited. I'd take him in a second. Exactly the kind of tear away center we need.
    That would be the cherry on top for our recruitment for 2018.

    Unless Pearce to Sharks Rumour has any legs. Then it would be pearce to halves, Moylan to fullback, Holmes to the wing, dugan to the centers and Sharks to the Top 4.
