First up, appears Tom Robertson is heading to the Force. Good move for both clubs.
Good for the Force, Waratahs not so much. I suppose Bell has been anointed, but he needs time to improve his scrummaging
I give him 6 months. He'll be fine.
Still not great for the Tahs imho. I think Robertson is a little underrated and with his long period out for injury is only starting to look back where he was and is really just entering that sweet spot at 26yrs. I think we've seen how well having some depth and competition for positions has worked for the Brumbies.
I watched a bit of the game last night, frankly Crichton looked out of his depth. Hard to reconcile the reality with the hype.
The had 60 put on them, everyone looked out of their depth. I have seen a bit of the roosters play the last few weeks and he and Keary have been 2 of their best. Be happy to have both back.
That was our biggest win over Easts in 112 years of the game. We were just on another level and it’s hard to judge any of the Chooks based on that, especially when they have a couple of guys who are legitimate contenders for best players in the world in their positions.
What I take away from that game in relation to Union is what a talent pool there is in Australia for contact athletes and what a side we’d have for Union if the athletes weren’t split across three codes. Someone like Koloamatangi, who was basically unheard of outside of Souths circles at the start of the season, would walk into the Waratahs side given time in the game.
Shannon Frizell or Tyson Frizelle?
Okay, but I did say that I only watched the opening quarter or so, I kept an eye on Crichton the whole time, and he did nothing: the score was one try apiece when I lost interest.
Tyson has signed for the Knights for a bucket load of cash.
He stripped Graham 15 out from Souths’ line and in the next set broke Souths’ defence in the tackle that preceded the Roosters’ first try. He was anonymous after that but he was basically the architect of their first try.
Anyway, I would take him at the Tahs next year if he was willing to come back.
Brilliant hole runner, busy off the ball, great short passing game and sound in defence. Would take him in a heartbeat
Meanwhile, Hanigan confirmed that he had signed a one-year deal in Japan for 2021.
Hanigan has gone to Japan
I once saw Dan Carter have a pretty average 20 minutes too.
If that period of 20 minutes was the only time you had ever seen Dan Carter play, what would you think of him?
Didn't we know about this weeks ago?
Not fully confirmed he just confirmed it
Now there are some names to conjure up magical memories - on ya Froggy.
The Cumberland throw.
Long haired skinny fullbacks.
5/8s with hands of silk.
Long striding centres.
Me too. One question though - back row or centres?
Well, I guess he has a mortgage to pay
