    Round 13 v The Stone Poneys

    I didn't specifically refer to any lapses by Dufty last night - I was talking about his career overall, where there have been many. I have also seen Dufty make a brilliant tackle on Jake Trbojevic where he rolled him onto his back and prevented him from scoring. The thing is, watching Dufty is...

    George Burgess

    Sign a thirty year old, eye-gouging grub, recovering from a serious injury with no recent football? Of course we'll sign him. How much $$ would you like, George?

    Round 13 v The Stone Poneys

    I didn't get to see the game on Thursday but I just watched a 1 hour highlight on Fox. As good as a win and 50 points are, conceding 24 against the Broncos still rings alarm bells as they have absolutely nothing in attack. Dufty will get a lot of headlines for his performance but his only...

    Billy Smith

    We seemingly had an endless stream of top quality halves in the 50s/60s/70s but Billy was easily the best. I watched him play many times at the SCG and Jubilee and remember being spellbound in his presence while he and my Grandfather were talking outside the Taj one evening. We could do with...

    Round 12 v Tigers

    In Rugby League world ... * If you don't have halves who bend the line, you're f***ed * If you don't have forwards who can break the line or draw defenders and offload, you're f***ed * If you don't have a full-back and wingers who can catch a high ball, you're f***ed * If your halfback always...

    Round 12 v Tigers

    Does anyone else here think that Cooper Cronk calls a game of football like a circuit-bent Speak And Spell machine?!

    JC couldn't save this lot.

    Round 12 v Tigers

    Dear Fat Kid From Hey Dad!, Do the decent thing and resign. And take your Brisbane Over 30s Oz-Tag team with you. Regards, NotB

    Matt Dufty

    None of the players you have mentioned played junior football in the St George district. Unless my map is broken Temora, Shellharbour, Dapto and Gerringong aren't located there.

    Matt Dufty

    Not re-signing Dufty - for all his faults, perceived or otherwise - will mean that there will be NOT ONE St George junior in the NRL squad. Let that sink in for a moment... Some Centenary.

    Matt Dufty

    Dufty is a St George junior and, on recent evidence, will not be re-signed but squeezed out a la Luciano Leilua, Jacob Host.

    Round 11 v Sharks

    It's funny that you should say that, but this morning I entertained the idea that we were being punished for not being wooden spooners, as was almost universally foretold during pre-season. Four wins in a row - especially a dominant performance against the NRL's beloved Eels - was obviously too...

    Round 11 v Sharks

    If tonight proves anything it proves that the NRL is not fair dinkum. Despite six losses on the trot , the Scum are favourites and - whaddya know?! - they win in golden point. Fui gets sent off and the book thrown at him by the judiciary for a marginal tackle on Papenhuizen while Dugan and...

    Commentators your best and worst

    Every word that Andrew Voss and Greg Alexander utter makes me want to crap in my hands and throw it at the television. Ditto for Braith Anasta, Corey Parker and Phil Gould. Alan Marks was a man who could call a game of football without spewing out a torrent of hyperbole and mixed metaphor...

    Round 11 v Sharks

    Or, in Sims & McGuire's case, don't tackle around the legs either. For the last 20 years I've said that if there was no Dragons I would not watch rugby league. It's getting harder to stick to that vow. Constant, ill-advised, knee-jerk rule changes which always seem to advantage the same teams...

    Round 9 vs Dogs

    Actually, I think I dudded Tyrell Fuimaono by not giving him 1 or 2 points, cos he was outstanding today at centre.

    Round 9 vs Dogs

    I'm as critical of Norman as anyone but I thought he really stood up today. He took the line on more, didn't throw any hospital passes that I can recall, looked to offload and was easily 50% better than any of his other performances this year. Maybe he can feel the hot breath of Junior Amone or...

    Round 9 vs Dogs

    Much better second half. Feagai twins look the goods. Amone wasn't on the field long enough to make an assessment, but he'll remember his debut for all the right reasons. I'll give my 3-2-1 to Blake Lawrie (3) Corey Norman (2) Jack Bird (1) We needed those 2 points cos next week is going to be...
