Consistency will see him receiving at least 4 weeks like the other 2 blokes sent off for them this season
Not ideal for him but, still, he gets a rest. He may be dangerously fresh in September.

Believe it or not but the Parra fans might've left a bit flat after that big win tonight, until Sivo scored at the end. That was their only points in the second-half.

They have to be better than that and they know it.

Now I am reading the 7 twats are ok with wearing and playing in the jersey next year?? So all this religious and cultural bullshit is ok next year? LOL

I see Toby Rudolf has commented publicly on his sexuality... good for him, if he felt like he should, big Ian was certainly emotional.

If the jersey and the symbolism (which was very tasteful and mild) helps some kids be more comfortable in their skin, then it's unquestionably a good thing

I’m glad you brought them up, one can only imagine the micro aggressions they face

A truly inclusive approach would definitely include a round in solidarity with them
This isn't the best approach to the situation either, most white European males now have more aggression towards them due to past event the currently have no control or say over but get the blame for if we talk about aggression (social media pile ons for example).

I feel the approach needs to be explained to people more scientifically, but it seems this is not allowed as it could be accusing a group of being faulty/broken and need fixing or lumped in with groups that may be considered deplorable
(eg paedophiles). So we go down the emotional path, love is love etc which causes an emotional response.

From stats apparently more farmers kill themselves yearly than those identifying as LGBQTI. (This may be an identification issue, a farmer easier to spot.)

When the Eels are good they’re bloody good, no mistake

Will be interesting to see how Penrith go without 6 and 7 for a while, will probably make them stronger in the long run

When Parra go good our man Ice is a world class second-rower and the fans adore him.

seems it'll be 5 pending their decision on contesting... Panthers without their halves until the finals? Moses gone for about 4 too

I just don't understand the JWH, NAS etc And Finucane at the other end, it's not even amusing any more

And they get one! Redemption from last week.

Gee, the spoon race is ratcheting up. I'm scared.
Titans couldn’t beat an egg and even the coach is now admitting that

another interesting outcome pending from the match review committee, that tackle on Hastings was a shocker, but they have shown the past week or so that deliberate contact is ok while accidental contact is a no no

Yeah, the Titans have it. However, the game at Mt Smart might be interesting.

bottom 4 are all woeful - atm Knights and Titans look the worst, but at various stages us and the Tigpies have seemed as bad...

Dogs clearly improving

Adam O’Briens days must be getting numbered by now, his press conferences are bizarre, talking yesterday about how he was an assistant coach for 4 grand finals so that means he know what he is doing

They shouldn’t be anywhere near where they are placed, even if the halves aren’t top shelf, a pack containing Klemmer, Saifiti x 2, Frizzell are all rep level and Barnett, Fitzgibbon etc aren’t terrible

letting Pearce go was a diabolical call, as was the Titans saying no to him when he asked to move there

Most talk has been of Adam Reynolds being the buy of the season, which is fair enough. I'd argue Chad Townsend has been better. Most had a high-ish expectation of what Reynolds could do for Brisbane. The majority (including myself) thought the Townsend purchase was crazy by the Cowboys. What he has done for the club & his team mates far outweighs Reynolds imo.

So we're on 12 competition points... there are five games to go, so 10 more points up for grabs... and the 8th placed team is currently on 22 points.

We're still a chance!!!
