Interesting game.

Newcastle have had the better season but stumbled against the cowboys last week.

Parra in a very tight one.

This Year?

Newcastle have a habit of playing the Eels into form.
The most fun part of the game will be seeing whose skin Gamble gets under.

Eels by a big margin and to start their run.


Post Whore
As opposed to missing the whole series anyway because he’s shit

He is but Hass aside who are the props? Jake Turbo probably 1 but surely you need 1-2 on the bench? Surely you aren’t picking Paulo in Origin he’s hopeless every time


2023 Yvonne Sampson is a high range sociopath. There’s nothing behind those eyes.
I mentioned this previously, on a daily (morning) ESPN NFL live show, there is a female commentator who who does this very measured speech expression, and presents herself very well.

Vonny has obviously been told to modify her voice on personality from that NFL woman.

Sadly, she simply doesn't have what it takes, and comes off as someone who is too overbearing in her zestfulness.
