    Pulled a sickie to go to the beach this morning. Great time of year for it. Fuck all people. Water is still nice. Dont get super cooked in the sun. Sufficiently rested up for tomorrow Beer

    It's a good time of year to visit from NZ for these reasons.

    I just realised with this “crackdown” on high shots... obviously high tackles are bad but most HIAs are caused by defenders clashing heads and/or going low as the attacker changes direction. Will be interesting to see if an unintended consequence is more HIAs.

    Nah I haven't seen an update since mate. Last I heard which was last week from Robbo was that he was going to be 'a month or two'. With the surgey though I'd be leaning more towards the 2, just a personal opinion.

    He would be on FOZ side.

    I guess I should start thinking about who to trade in for Fifita.

    The aim of the nrl will be to get players tackling around the waist or legs instead of standing up to tackle. Most of the recent shots that have got players in trouble have been where the tackler hasn't got too low and the ball player drops last second.
    I get the idea that its meant to change technique being used and thats great and all in theory, except unlike union where you have a contest for the ball once the tackle is made (and thus a chance to slow it down), you'll have a guy finding his front and getting a super quick ptb because unless its dominant they'll be told to release/roll away. Not to mention what the offloads will cause. Call me a cynic but I don't even think it reaches the stage of players adjusting technique, this is just going to lead to a tonne of sin bins/send offs from all sorts of accidents, the media, coaches etc will all make a big deal of it and the NRL will cave after 4 weeks. Like any other "crackdown".

    Evening Gents!! Been a minute but life got in the way there for a bit!! How good is magic round gonna be!! Reading through I know the Starling questions have been flogged to death but just after an opinion or two:

    Hampton to Starling and 282k ITB
    or Hampton to Fog and 117 ITB?

    Btw mate, thoughts on going Starling in my h2h team? Worst case he makes some quick cash and gets a decent score or he could nail down the role abit later. Feeling a little risky aswell so may aswell aye?

    With WFBs of Teddy, Ponga, Laurie and Walsh. Ponga to Trbojevic is a given right?

    I mean imagine the storm if Cleary accidentally makes contact to a falling players head this weekend, ends up binned/sent and panthers lose on the back of it. Aside from the media pundits like Johns, Gould and co frothing over how it broke their winning streak you'd also have the 9 billion fantasy coaches gathering pitch forks.
