    Official: Redcliffe Dolphins to join NRL in 2023

    As for comparisons to the US, Sydney is LA, Melbourne is New York City, and Queensland is Alabama.

    Official: Redcliffe Dolphins to join NRL in 2023

    South Queensland is the least worst geographic name. "Sunshine state" is idiotic. No team should pretend to represent the whole state. The broader and more generic the name the less meaningful it is.

    2023 Comp Structure

    I'd be happy to agree to the teams outside Sydney getting an allowance from the NRL to go towards their travel costs. It would be extraordinarily spiteful for anyone to want to deny maximising rivalry games. Also if the 18th team is also a QLD team then really the only clubs this would affect is...

    "It’s very realistic to say that we’ll have a second team in Brisbane in 2023": V'landys

    2023 is better than 2024. If the franchise is to be given a fair go it needs to have a recruiting advantage, that means a full cap it can spend now. Pushing it to 2024 means other teams will have too much time to lock down top tier players. The NRL does not have instruments like draft picks to...

    80% of available practice time spent on defense/wrestle

    Professionalism has made the game more defense based. As well as the training aspect, the bigger and fitter players become, the more it helps defending. It is easier to hold a line than it is to break a line if both sides are improving at the same rate. The game peaked in the 90s and 00s when...

    2021 GF | PREMIERS - Penrith 14-12 South Sydney @ Suncorp

    Well done Panthers. If it couldn't be us there's a lot more insufferable mobs to lose to. As for us, so bloody close. A missed conversion and field goal away from winning. We let in just 1 try defensively despite having so little of the ball. I am proud of that effort. I am going to miss...

    We have had 2 looks at their try line in this game and we have scored twice. We are so much better with the ball than them. This game has revolved entirely on how unevenly the ref has kept on top of the 10 metres and the ruck speed

    Thank god for Edwards being the worst attacking spine player in the comp. But if the Panthers are allowed to have a nap on us in every single tackle we won't be able to win. The refs are refusing to call blatant penalties.

    For a moment I thought the refs were going to dog us again and call the high tackle while ignoring the blatant block. Finally we get a fair go and we are right back in this

    1st tackle 6 agains are virtually meaningless. 1 rubbish call on Blake knocking on when he didn't and the refs magically turning Luai dropping it cold into a strip would outweigh ten 1st tackle 6 agains

    10, 8, 10, are the Panthers scores for their last 3 games. Here they could only score 1 try in a half despite a dream run from the refs. They really are a mediocre attacking unit for all the talented individuals they have. Now we are bloody exhausted because the refs have given us zero 50/50...

    2021 GF | PREMIERS - Penrith 14-12 South Sydney @ Suncorp

    Worst grand final refereeing in living memory. Wasn't a knock on by Blake. Earlier clear as day dropped it and the merkins rule it a strip. And worst of all, the Panthers have not been made to go back 10 all bloody game. The moment the ball is in the dummy half's hands they are about 5 metres...

    This dinky little Queensland cup stuff is cringeworthy. What is effectively 4th grade. They should have played the NSW cup final on grand final day, a far higher standard of footy.

    News Coronavirus and NRL

    Victoria was supposed to go into a short sharp lock down, countless weeks have come and gone, they are still in lock down, while cases have climbed to record levels. Who is to say Queensland won't go the same way? It is absurd to postpone for a week because there is no guarantee it will be right...

    God the sooking from the Penrith camp... You know you use the trainers against the spirit of the game. I can understand doing everything you can to win but the hysteria when you're called out on it is a bit much
