    Kahu did a great job when Boyd missed half of 2015. He had a groin injury the last half of 2017 which stopped him playing there when Boyd went down, but I have full confidence in him when fit.

    It'd be great if Kahu was back at full strength and reliable.... poor bloke has drifted into the "one tackle away from an injury" category in my head.

    He's one of few players that exceed my expectations. He's plodding along, doesn't really look like he's trying, or in any danger of getting to the line, then somehow he's threaded his way through three opponents and scored. All the while looking as casual as Justin Hodges.

    Piemole strikes again

    https://wwos.nine.com.au/2017/12/19/06/45/brisbane-broncos-linked-to-england-winger-jermaine-mcgillvary-the-mole

    I fkin hate the mole and the lurker, they clearly just read NRL forums and some how get paid to copy and paste what we write here.

    Doesnt post the "link"/evidence/source - just states that the bronco's are linked to McGillvary. I would suggest that the link is Pieman saying it a few times recently here.

    Didn't lurker actually get found out that he was full of shit like two years ago?

    I remember some random on twitter said to him he saw Manranta at West Tigers and he put in his column "My sources tell me that Manrantas manager is in deep talks with the West Tigers and expected to sign within days"

    Then the twitter goer came out and said he made it all up

    haha ive never heard that but it sounds spot on

    a year or 2 ago lurker was clearly fishing through here and taking some of our posts and stating "player x has been linked with a club" and literally the only thing on the internet about it was a post on sportal or here

    Its so easy for Jurnos to say the player x is link with one club or another because its something that normal fans cant prove. I mean its obvious as hell that most of the reports are full of it but when they get one right god don't we hear about it!


    The only one that is legit is Barry Toohey. Never reports rubbish/clickbait and seems to be a nice bloke

    My favourite one recently was Moles report that he had hyped up as a world first report of a signing on a star player.

    It was the hooker for the irish WC team asking for a release from his contract in the UK.

    No signing. No star player. Best of all - wasnt a world first. The local rag had reported it the previous week.

    haha yeah thats amazing.
    spot on tho, when he gets one right he harps on about it.

    The difference between mole and lurker is that mole actually gets one every now and then. The lurker never has and never will.

    Lurker will say something like - "yeah I have heard that the roosters are looking at crichton, watch this space" after its been reported on all forms of media, then when its announced will be like, "Lurker knew it was happening."

    Blows my mind that ladbrokes sponsor his shit

    Who is the Bronco player facing court after beating on a woman? Anyone know? I'm guessing it isn't Lodge, probably a fringe player.

    Hopefully.

    I would also hope that our standards are high enough that we wouldn't replicate the infamous Newcastle/Joey tactics.

    supposedly the player in question is a forward that spent a bit of time in first grade last year, no details beyond that
