    Extraordinary career really, but particularly for a guy who to me always seemed so limited? Playing either in the halves or at hooker but I don't think he ever really had a long kicking game, didn't have much speed, and didn't really put people into gaps. Just tackled hard and competed hard...

    Where we finished by year.

    Roger's injury was 2016. 2017 was sort of a mini-2015, Shaun got injured just as we were looking ok (although not as good as 2015). 2007 and 2010 are underrated seasons because we didn't do well in the finals. In each case we actually did worse the following season, but people remember those...

    Kiwis squad announced

    Utoikamanu was named on the extended bench for NSW in Game 3 this year so I guess he's gone

    Kiwis squad announced

    There now seems to be a prevailing attitude that every Kiwi with a Samoan or Tongan grandparent has a moral obligation to play for Samoa or Tonga. I know it's none of my business but I hate it. Seems perversely regressive while being touted as progress.

    Kiwis squad announced

    Mulitalo has said on Instagram that he wants to play for the Kiwis. Mad, since we are literally his 4th choice - he has already played for Samoa and the USA and before being ruled ineligible he clearly stated his desire to represent Queensland/Australia. I wonder if he actually preferred NZ...

    Benji retires

    Why DID his speed and footwork seem to fall off a cliff so dramatically circa about 2013? I mean I know I said it was common for guys to lose a yard, but Benji seemed to really drop off a cliff at a relatively young age. Like all of a sudden in his late 20s he went from a fast guy to a slow guy...

    Honestly I'm extrapolating a bit from different bits and pieces I've heard, I don't have the inside word or anything. I know Manu has been mixed up with the Headhunters though so assume it's them.

    Rookie of the year - Walsh or Walker?

    Walsh got suspended for 1 game for starting the fight in the Titans game. I gotta admit I had switched off the season by then and didn't realise it. Since when did players get suspended for running in and pushing someone?

    Benji retires

    Quite a unique career, in that he was clearly no longer an ‘elite’ player past about 2013 (he peaked early to an extent), yet went on to have an extremely long career. Has there ever been a comparable case of an elite player continuing on in a second iteration as ‘sub-elite’ for the better part...

    His much older brother has been a very high ranking gang guy for 20+ years. Hard to know how easy it would have been for Manu to say no tbh

    I legit don’t like pulling rank (more like pulling wank) but as a prosecutor for the last dozen years I can confidently say this isn’t a real thing

    Yeah he will probably get a small discount at the last stage of the sentencing process for prior good character etc. Starting point of the sentence is the most important factor though in terms of where the actual sentence will end up, and that is based on the offending itself. By the sounds of...

    Yeah, I've always been a big fan of Meth too

    NRL Finals 2021

    I don't really follow your logic. "It" is rampant amongst all walks of life, but if anything "party drugs" like cocaine, MDMA etc are MORE common and associated with the rich and successful. Lawyers, entrepreneurs, musicians, actors, whatever. I don't follow the link you are drawing between...

    Despite comments above about "the system" and "the government" (what that has to do with a Judge's sentencing in a criminal case I have no idea), the reality is that importing/exporting/distributing meth in NZ is taken almost as seriously as murder. We don't know what exactly he has pleaded...

    Melbourne Storm alleged incident

    I mean, I guess that does sound more fun. Could probably go for it after having heaps and heaps of sweet sweet drugs.

    God dammit I just posted that without even considering my username

    Melbourne Storm alleged incident

    I'm a bit miffed by the ethical code of so many posters here, who seem absolutely confident in the belief that humping a dog is more ok than doing a bit of coke on a night out? Personally I'm all for an occasional bit of sniff and I mostly steer clear of bestiality (and drinking my own piss...

    I was confused by Luke’s situation…supposedly retired but was named 19th man on Sunday?
