    2017 Retirees

    Any list anywhere of who has pulled the pin? Doesnt seem to be many high profile ones off the top of my head, a few solid first graders (other than Stewart and Matai in preseason). Cronk if he pulls the pin.

    Bad rugby league decisions

    AKA the benefit of hindsight thread. What stand out as some of the worst rugby league decisions made by clubs in recent times? Ivan Cleary not being offered an extension (or more than a season as it may've been) by the Warriors in 2011 certainly looks like a terrible call. If ever there was a...

    Best/worst positions for depth in the NRL

    Been thinking a bit about this lately with the money the likes of Tedesco are being offered. I think fullback must be the position with the best depth around. Notwithstanding current injuries to Inglis, Hayne, Coote and Hoppa I'd say every side bar Newcastle has a high quality player at...

    5 day turn arounds

    Having footy every day except tuesday, wednesday, increasing the amount of 5 day turn arounds, is no good for the comp. When sides get back to back ones (as manly did a couple of weeks ago) it is even worse. Brisbane are getting a nice little booster (not their fault, but noticeable) with having...

    Ryan Harris retires

    :( all over twitter at present. Easily my favourite post-Mcgrath bowler, big hearted, bowled great lines, really good quality seamer and a real shame he couldn't get his knee through another series. Sounded like scans showed a worsening to his knee injury which was gonna put him out of the...

    Reduction of teams in the 2019 world cup

    Worthy of its own discussion IMO. I'm not sure there's a worse body at expanding their international footprint than the ICC. The decision the reduce the 2019 world cup to 10 teams is a shocker. Dave Richardsons attempts to explain it seem pretty pissweak to me...

    The Phantom retires

    The Phantom has retired http://www.espncricinfo.com/newzealand/content/current/story/647165.html Decent bowler, had a few memorable performances and had Hughes in his back pocket. Always worked hard for the Black Caps and did well to stick around as long as he did (allowed the younger blokes...

    Excellent news re shield/BBL

    http://www.espncricinfo.com/australia/content/current/story/633824.html Shifting the start of the BBL to later and continuing the shield deep into december is vital for our test side IMO and is very pleasing to see that CA might've actually noticed problems with how the domestic season was...

    Ashes 2013

    This series is done and dustbowled. Whilst we've been poor it was always going to be an uphill struggle to compete in India when our strength at present is fast bowling - And just turn your minds back 15 months to remember how poor India were in Australia. Polar opposite conditions. I reckon...

    Annandale Hotel in receivership

    :( http://www.fasterlouder.com.au/news/local/34884/The-Annandale-in-receivership Rule brothers have handed over the keys this morning apparently to the bank. Best pub venue in Sydney, and on the back of the Sando and, not that long ago, Hopetoun closing its doors a disaster for Sydney music scene.

    Great Opening Lines

    What are the great opening lines that set the tone, mood of a song? Obviously there are some classics eg "Hello darkness my old friend, I've come to talk with you again" - Simon & Garfunkel, The Sound of Silence "I read the news today, oh boy" - The Beatles, A Day In The Life Once upon a...

    Who is left from the 90's?

    Hodgson and Menzies are still (I think) running around in the ESL, but who is left in the NRL from the 1990's? Only name that springs to mind, following the retirement of Petro, Best, Hindmarsh and Burt, is Buderus. Anyone else?
