Yeah that's without mentioning distinctions between old and new testaments which apply differently for Jews and Christians.

If we are going to push back it has to be accurate and I think by educating people. It gets forgotten most of the time these beliefs are ingrained from childhood. They didn't really get a choice and sitting the 7 down with Ian Roberts and having an honest discussion could go a long way.

I think Education is key.

You mentioned being ingrained, Their parents would of had it in grained also from the same age.

To change that mindset is the best thing you can do for inclusivity

Gambling and alcohol aren't issues for Christians unless you get into drunkenness, addiction, love of money territory. Done in moderation it's fine. Muslims have a bigger thing about it.
I agree with "done in moderation". It's the drunkeness, addiction etc and the other issues that comes with that I was alluding to.

Dylan for the Dally M:


Edwards was on 13 points when voting went behind closed doors, six behind Dragons halfback Ben Hunt.

While Hunt will always poll when the Dragons win, there haven’t been many of those lately. It’s why Edwards and Cronulla’s Nicho Hynes are in the mix because their teams have been winning nearly every week.

Edwards has a few other things on his side. He didn’t play State of Origin, he’s only missed one game this season and he won’t have to contend with Cleary because he’s out suspended for a dangerous spear tackle.

I'd love to see it happen though it usually goes to more glamorous players.

I think he is a smoky for WC selection as well. With Trbojevic, Ponga and Papenhuyzen out we are lacking back up options at fullback. Latrell, Holmes and perhaps Munster are the guys who could switch there mid-game but if Tedesco gets injured he is a chance to start.

Rest up


Panthers coach Ivan Cleary is likely to rest a host of stars for next Saturday night’s clash with North Queensland in Townsville.


Many of them won’t even make the trip up north and will remain home to prepare for the following weekend’s opening round of the Finals. I’d be very surprised if Api Koroisau and Isaah Yeo, among others, make the trip.

Would they pick him wing?

The back up guys would need to cover several positions

Resting guys is a must. Maybe earlier then last round would be better, I guess flight time is a big part.

Given we play the Friday night of the finals, Hopefully NSW Cup get the week off to take their pressure off

Hopefully the club is looking at ways to rort this covid nonsense in the finals. It's the only thing I can see stopping us
