    Rumoured & Confirmed Signings - Part 5

    Will start looking for guys like Sorenson once the season is done.

    Rumoured & Confirmed Signings - Part 5

    These things are hard to judge. If our line organisation is better than other teams there's less try scoring opportunities for the opposition so less chances to make one on one dramatic try saving tackles particularly on big forwards because good defense pushes the tries to the edges where the...

    He'd have to. We don't have money beyond what's reasonable. You can't backend contracts now so we couldn't overpay him if we tried.

    Rumoured & Confirmed Signings - Part 5

    We barely have any money to spare atm. We'd be looking for another Sorenson type not a guy like Matterson who probably would have played Origin a couple of years ago if he didn't get concussed.

    Panthers v Parra

    Was mentally recovering from his second broken jaw. Not everyone can run full pelt at a brick wall after that. Like players will play with little confidence in their leg after doing an ACL.

    Non Penrith games

    In the gf To'o made 110 metres so look what Storm did to him last time they got serious. Besides it's not just about the metres mainly it's about the play the ball you get away because that effects the entire set after that. If To'o gets a quick play the ball then Staines is turned onto his...

    Rumoured & Confirmed Signings - Part 5

    Saying 50% of players have a bad rep just isn't true. Maybe it was something like like that in the nineties but if you ask a large group of fans for experiences with footy players the vast majority of people talking about current players (currently playing not say GI and Justin Hodges) they'll...

    Rumoured & Confirmed Signings - Part 5

    It's not basing it solely off that. When people talk about dickheads players they met he's probably in the top 5 (among current players) or so names that gets mentioned the most, I'm not saying he did it. I'm saying I've seen enough different claims about him really an asshole that it makes him...

    Rumoured & Confirmed Signings - Part 5

    I wouldn't say half the player in NRL have a rumour going around they once had sex with a girl who was cheating on her boyfriend and send the guy a picture of his girlfriend giving him a blow job though. I'd emphasise that's just a rumour and I can't exactly remember the exact source comment of...

    Rumoured & Confirmed Signings - Part 5

    Seen some accounts of fans about BJ as a person that don't put him a good light as a person. It's a no from me. Roosters? Roosters finish defending a set from the Raiders after a long time on their line. They're all exhausted but Boyd Cordener takes a one hit up and finds his front. Off the...

    Man that's ridiculous. Dumb clubs have stuffed up the market for everyone else.

    Rumoured & Confirmed Signings - Part 5

    Surely that report in the DT was his manager's pumping up his tires and no other club's willing to offer him 900K-1,000K. That's just insane.

    Penrith v Souths semi final

    I'll bet anyone anything it won't matter at all against Melbourne, Souths or whoever we play the third time. Nathan won't dislocate his shoulder tackling someone or getting tackles unless he's doing it while falling just like it didn't in the previous 4 games Nathan's played. Storm aren't the...

    Penrith v Souths semi final

    How many dislocated shoulders have you ever seen in a Rugby League game from a guy being ruffed up? (edit) It's usually not an injury that happens like that. It almost always happens in a fall and stuff like that and actual players instead of the Souths' arm chair fans would know that. E.g Reed...

    Rumoured & Confirmed Signings - Part 5

    Yeah that's why I said in part in brackets, that's usually not just one reason for these things. Life isn't that black and white. But my point is when you're a half and you're tackling someone would you rather tackle a tall 108kg dude who's quick for a forward or a 99kg dude who's quick forward...

    Rumoured & Confirmed Signings - Part 5

    Sorenson is not as big as Sims. The quicker play style has (in part) brought Sorenson into the game and allowed him to really shine, before that he was a journey man. Whereas Sims has always been big and aggressive enough to be a pretty upper tier second rower. It's a bit of a difference...

    Penrith v Souths semi final

    This week (and Matty too) Cronk says it's a no brainer we'll win and Cleary will dominate Souths with his kicking. They do it week by week so they aren't really talking about the gf. I wouldn't say Cronk's massive on us or on Melbourne to win the gf, it's hard to see what his opinion is from his...

    Penrith v Souths semi final

    For this game. they agreed we're looking like the team in best shape for the gf like last week or the week before but haven't really talked about it in detail wouldn't say Cronk's massive on us to win the gf. But Matty's massive on our style of play. He loves it.

    Penrith v Souths semi final

    Matty Johns also recognises the greatness of Isaah Yeo in it. Said to him that look inside play outside ball to Leota against Manly was the best piece of pure ball playing he's seen this year.

    Penrith v Souths semi final

    Yeah because Hynes was a back on the bench in case of an injury to their backline not a utility forward. If Hynes had been injured and say a utility that usually plays in the forwards like Tom Eisenhuth had taken his spot Tom wouldn't have played zero minutes.
