    Latest Broncos player rumour is that Kev Walters is trying to sign up Null Null after a couple of impressive performances in recent weeks.

    I'll do anything you say if you promise not to rip my arms off when you lose.

    For everyone's sake let's hope little Bobby Tables doesn't ever make it to the NRL:

    Thats crazy, was a great hit

    It was a great shoulder charge, which are now illegal, due to the heightened risk of brain injuries from them.

    I thought the Josh papalii hit was very similar on tualagi point of difference the left arm in grabbing for papalii whereas talakai didn’t wrap

    Parra got some good bargain deals with Ipap and Carty. Add Matterson back to the mix and you've got some good firepower on the edge

    Should be some close games today.
    I can't see the Warriors beat the Storm though, especially without Tohu

    Don't want to see this issue drag out for the rest of the week, out of our control
    Just think when both players run hard at each front on, then the arm may never full wap.
    The key to the hit was it came outside in which is usually the best way to put a shot on

    It's not like he is arm is side on and tucked in like a traditional shoulder charge
    If he swings his arm and misses then that puts him in trouble too

    Even in that photo he may have started to wrap his arm but the sheer force/whiplash of the run means it didn't completely happen
    This all happens in a split second remember and the attacker bounced off and fell backwards off talakai's tackle

    If you reverse the scenario and he runs over and knockouts Brailey then we wouldn't even be discussing it

    Can someone explain what the point is of continuously naming someone then swapping them to the bench 1 hour before? I mean it’s not even sneaky?

    is it supposed to make it ok that the point of contact was the throat and the force from the shoulder coming up under the chin was what knocked him loopy? He performed an illegal tackle that contacted the head and caused a concussion due to his recklessness, bye bye Talakai, end of discussion

    Agree, doesn't matter where it started, it finished a nanosecond later with his shoulder in his jaw.

    Haha using your example then Talakai should have just punched him
    Anyways I know where you are coming from, watching the Broncos they haven't tackled in years
