    What’s the brothers experiment? What do you mean Blue Mountains time will come?

    Seagull stepping on someone’s groin intentionally is terrible. There is no room for that sort of stuff in the game. I’m not talking about those extremes. To be honest I have never seen that in my time in the game either. That should have been addressed then and there. Was it not?

    What happened to the days where what happens on the field stays on the field? Someone gets a cheap shot on you. You wait patiently and get them back at some point during the game. All is not forgotten but it’s definitely left on the field. The game is getting soft as it is, but then to add to...

    I see Forest are still making friends with rival clubs.

    Had a bit of a laugh today. Was told St Pats went through their first grade grand final thrashing and have sent in three videos trying to cite two Blue Mountains Rugby players. Sour grapes or what?!?! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Yeah Forest produced video evidence for both cases at the judiciary. Not sure of the exact circumstances behind it though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    For the record the Blue Mountains Number 8 has a laceration in his mouth and had headaches and a sore neck till Wednesday. How it was reported that the tackle wasn’t high is beyond me. There was clear, hard contact to the head when the player was upright. He is is about 6ft 4inchs tall. The...

    Blue Mountains will have no issue if the Emus come back Heavyd. Go and have a look at our team sheets and see that we only really gave a couple of Emus lower graders a run this year. We have over 150 registered players and we have already begun the player retention and recruitment drive for...

    Check my post from May about Joseph, Prodigy. For the record also he only played about 15mins and got yellow carded. Did not return to the field. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The Real Big Popper If you haven’t already, then maybe check through the team lists of Mountains. It is laughable that there is still discussion about Penrith Emus folding and that having anything to do with Blue Mountains winning games. It’s just an easy cop out from people clutching at straws...

    Heavyd your information is wrong in regards to Blue Mountains picking up the rest of the Emus first grade side. They have no Emu first graders currently playing with them. They have one that might potentially play but has only turned up once so far and if he comes back will probably play in...

    The Barraclough medal is based on refs points. Hunters must have had their points spread evenly throughout the team. Probably a good sign from a team perspective. I am surprised though that the 7 or 9 didn't get enough points to make the final four in saying that. Sent from my iPhone using...

    The 13 for Waverley in seconds was Scott Sarson who is nominated for the Barraclough Medal this year. Very good footballer Don't think he played many first grade games in the back half of the year though in firsts. Their 12 was a standout in that game. He broke the line numerous times. Very...

    Great recap of the day!!! In the first grade fixture, I think you are correct in saying the prop was lucky not to get a red. Very late and there was intent. You swing a closed fist into someone's face that is in a stationary position. That can't be called an accident. Pretty clear view of this...

    Really looking forward to the 2nd division Grand Final this weekend. Can Hunters Hill beat Blue Mountains for a fourth time this year or will the underdogs come through and ambush them. It's always interesting wondering if the week off at this time of year is a hindrance or a benefit. It's...
