    Norm Provan RIP

    What an incredibly sad day for the mighty St George Club and it’s faithful fans. Norm “Sticks” Provan’s sportsmanship, spirit and achievements is such an integral part of the heart and soul of the Big Red V His achievements on the field are truly immortal and he rightly sat in his chair in his...

    The Rumours Thread

    "Let" We kicked him out the door and for the record he wasn't remotely close to being worth the money we paid him. Having watched Lawrie over the last 2 years hard to understand how he could be selected to start ahead of almost every other prop we have let alone Molo. As I said before Lawrie...

    The Rumours Thread

    I wonder how long it would take for people to start whinging if their selections wishes / fantasies came true and they get flogged a couple of times? One thing I have learned that in this place there is very little patience shown even when people get close to what they want / wish for. Yes a...

    Naysayers

    The rules governing the game and our lengthy loss of players due to suspension makes any comparison of 21 to 20 in respect of defence irrelevant. Not even remotely apples for apples.

    2022 Squad: Gains, Losses & Re-signings.

    Burns will prosper from having good halves (f**k me he had to out up with good old Corey and still showed glimpses) and of course he will also benefit if he has a prop that can bust / bend the line.

    2022 Squad: Gains, Losses & Re-signings.

    Hopefully someone takes notice of your simply put but very succinct appraisal.

    2022 Squad: Gains, Losses & Re-signings.

    Suli is an interesting signing and I wouldn’t actually class him as a “journeyman” as his 1st year at Tigpies he was only 18 or so and not yet established. I think if he gets his head right he can ve an asset but if not a definite Joey Leilua in the making. Woods is no doubt now a journeyman...

    Benji Retires

    Benji is a great example of what making the most out of your natural gifts is all about. He is also testimony to the fact that being one of the greatest ever doesn’t give you any special entitlements in respect of the rules or your behaviour. No black marks in a stellar career if only some of...

    Can you send us a photo of the house?

    2022 Squad: Gains, Losses & Re-signings.

    I wonder when fans will realise a couple of key issues 1. You have to fill your squad 2. Not all your juniors are going to step up let alone make it to top 30. 3. You need some senior players (with considerable 1st grade experience) to help guide the most promising juniors through the system...

    The Rumours Thread

    I think there is an underlying risk with many NRL players and signings. Many of these blokes have the bodies of men and the brains and dicks of donkeys. Many live life on the edge and are only a photo, sexual urge, stupid or impulsive decision away from being a headline. JDB a perfect example...

    I agree with all the above but a little extra help whilst we get, learn, create all that won’t go astray.

    A lot will depend on the draw especially around SOO time because if you are going to play Penrith, Souths or the Storm that’s when you want it to be. A kind draw can do a lot to help us that’s for sure.

    I actually think he is a fair bit better than that & I would love to see him at our club.

    Dugan retires.

    Duges efforts on the filed were in line with many great players that pulled on the Big Red V. Never shirked it and shed plenty of blood & skin for the team. The press were relentless in their pursuit of him and tbh his misdemeanours were absolutely trivial compared some that actually still...
