    Rava being rubbed out

    Wasn’t it Phil Gould who stuck up for Victor Ridley asking the question something like ‘ The NRL doesn’t want Victor Ridley in its game’? I understand that tech smarts have noted that after the initial contact of Rava’s broad ‘shoulder area’ neck to end where arm meets shoulder ( not point of...

    Rava being rubbed out

    I mentioned earlier on this matter not to get your hopes up with Rava. The MRC had already charged him. We all got on and read the NRL definition of “shoulder charge” and that basically wrap arms around a strong indication no shoulder charge. Yet MRC still charged him.So I was thinking why? and...

    Rava being rubbed out

    Still wouldn’t hold out too much hope. Remember he was charged by MRC. Is anyone ever exonerated by Judiciary? Sort of all under the same umbrella?

    Round 15 vs Raiders

    Basically any front on low tackle will have shoulder contact 1st, followed by arm wrap to a various degree. The shoulder contact stops the momentum, thereafter arms trip, lift or twist legs or body or combination to bring the attacker to ground. Is the MRC now saying that the micro second...

    Does anyone know how to see the video of the incident?

    Tyrell Sloan

    Yes I am a Dufty fan but want Tyrell to succeed big time. Dufty‘s first NRL game saw him score a sublime individual try against Manly. Criss crossed west, back east and accelerated through the line and then had the high end speed to hold out Tommy Turbo for a 30 metre line dash to score...

    Damned if you do and damned if you don’t

    Yes we are the only team that locks up tacklers, slows play? 6 again really spoils the game. Every tackle by every team a ref can find something. It’s very capricious

    Round 15 vs Raiders

    Forbes Creek you said what I was thinking. I have heard of then seen a lot of prospective gun junior players going to turn the ship around for a number of years. Unfortunately, most are pretty standard at NRL level. In my view Zac Lomax falls in that category. Dufty has scored the most sublime...

    Matt Dufty

    Hi Since 77 noted your comments from my post on the Dufty / Lomax matter. Firstly, I don’t ‘hate’ Zac. He goes ok to my thinking and is normally a good goal kicker. What has surprised me is how after 45 NRL games that Zac seems to continue to be talked up as a gun player. However, his mistakes...

    I read this thread with continued interest that ‘Bud and Junior’ by the end of season and are the next big things with Sloan at the back ..we are salivating. Schiller also in the mix. Impressed with Feagai brothers. Give Cody more time blah blah. I hope it all happens because it appears that the...

    Read my back posts on this. The NRL were back tracking quickly after the Tragic round. Accidental hits judged ‘ reckless grade 1‘ became gentle Nuffy careless grade 2 one match or fine by the following round. Duges absolutely smashed Billy Burns in the face and the spectacle of him staggering...

    Oh no not the Lomax fullback thing again. Zac is a very good goal kicker. Has made a couple of fabulous jump catches but drops then also, got away some nice flick passes but just as many go to ground. Rarely, breaks the line one on one. As a player is NRL standard average; after 3 years in the...

    Matt Dufty

    Boardlumps Dufty gets picked every week because he runs like the wind, has scored 44 NRL trys in less than 4 seasons, has developed a sublime passing game and without him we are pedestrian in attack.

    Matt Dufty

    Boy oh Boy Matt really polarises this argument. I hope we keep Matt Dufty because he is exciting, he is why I go to some Dragon games or switch on and watch on TV. A flying machine and sublime passing of the ball. He breaks the line and scores long range trys. I don’t go to the game to watch...

    Round 13 v The Stone Poneys

    As usual good post by Willow. Dufty wasn’t to blame for the two trys that big Robati scored for the Broncos. Dufty nearly stopped the second and saved a 3rd later on getting under the ball. Dufty doesn’t only beat lower teams ‘who don’t tackle him’ as apparently an unnamed senior dragons...

    No thanks DWZ not in Dufty’s league.

    Matt Dufty

    I note some posters seem almost angry that Duff electrified Jubilee tonight. ( after all we are all Dragons tragics on a forum called Jubilee ave). Be a bit generous ladies and gents. Yes it is true that Broncos are down the ladder, but we got some quality players ie big power winger, JDB and...

    Matt Dufty

    Fellow dragons tragic I have posted that Matt Dufty is not a ‘superstar’. That acknowledged: 1. His defence and positional play is no worse that most fullbacks. Of course some posters on the forum can’t stand Duff. Fair enough we all have our opinions. I notice that any kick through try...

    Judiciary

    Well well well Felise K gets off. I saw the incident and thought it was a straight forward tripping charge. Not terrible but straight forward sneaky trip, a low level no brainer. Since the tragic round which has significantly affected our season the ‘new age rules’ are being watered down for...

    Matt Dufty

    Mickey and Slippery, plenty of us on the forum have played RL and been around watching all our lives.The 3 experienced coaches are just human. None have won a comp, but probably haven’t had the cattle to do so anyway. They hold opinions of players as all of us do. We differ ourselves sometimes...
