Re: Official Rugby League & Rugby Union Thread

Disciplinary issues is why he was released. can't see him going to many clubs, maybe the Cowboys or Titans if they get their shit sorted. He'll probably head to union.

Re: Official Rugby League & Rugby Union Thread

I can only imagine these undisclosed ‘disciplinary issues’ are trivial compared to his talent. Sydney sides should be cashing in on this unexpected opportunity.

Re: Official Rugby League & Rugby Union Thread

No one player is bigger than the club. Its what Penrith should be doing with Jennings and instead trying to resign Gordon. If you have a code or value in your club then it sends a terrible message when players keep flaunting it. Happened with Carney at the Raiders and Roosters. They tried to get him to comply with their rules (over the top in the roosters case) and he broke them.

Re: Official Rugby League & Rugby Union Thread

You'd have to think that Jennings' "star" name saved his termination after last years stunt. I just hope that he isn't selected for NSW as it doesn't send the appropriate message to him - park footy one week for discipline, the next he's on the games biggest stage.

Awesome news that Gallen escaped suspension, and I hope that he has enough sense to not risk the knee this Sunday if it's still giving him difficulty or could be injured further. Sure, he can love his club etc, but when our origin hopes hinge on him being in the side, well, NSW >'s club.

Re: Official Rugby League & Rugby Union Thread

I'm dreading the announcement of the NSW Origin team. after having the media write shit about the club, off contract players and whatnot all season we're now talked about as having 6-7 players up for Origin. Dugan is a better choice than Stewart at fullback, i hope G. Stewart gets selected and cops a 1 game ban for his tackle last night, Watmough got a burner but he should be alright to play if selected but there are better backrowers, Williams hasn't played in a few months, DCE isn't good enough for a starting spot and he isn't going to be picked on the bench hopefully. Same story with Ballin. D.Williams is a good option for a wing spot but i hope they don't pick him. King and Kite should be nowhere near the team. Hopefully Foran gets his hamstring right soon.

Re: Official Rugby League & Rugby Union Thread

After having none in contention a month ago the Tigers are facing a possible 3 players in Origin, but those 3 (Farah, Galloway, Lawrence) are 3 of our best, so part of me doesn't want them selected, especially when we have the Warriors up next.

Re: Official Rugby League & Rugby Union Thread

You reckon Fulton or Woods are possible bolters?

Re: Official Rugby League & Rugby Union Thread

Anyone watch the Warriors/Roosters match? Pretty solid game, Roosters defense is shocking. Johnson and Maloney is an absolutely quality halves partnership. Its a shame Maloney is leaving at the end of the year because it wouldn't take many signings for the Warriors to be considered a lock for the finals every year. I feel that they're weak at fullback and their wingers aren't too flash (Vatuvai is a head case) but Tupou is pretty decent. Their backrowers in Mateo, Mannering, Taylor, Brown and Luck are very solid players although their front row is also pretty lacking. As far as the Roosters are concerned, the quicker Maloney arrives the better. They'll be a 10x better side when he is there.

Fulton, yes, as he is creative with the ball, can act as a fill-in hooker and defends like a beast, but with Hinchcliffe in the mix as well it's unlikely to happen. Woods may be a bolter this series, but not game 1. If we win that, he might get a look in for sydney.

Yup, it was very free flowing and had attractive footy (better than the St George grind shit).

Maloney/Johnson is the current cream of the crop in terms of a halves combo (Foran/DCE is right up there but Foran is injured). Losing Maloney next year will hurt them quite a bit.

They are weak at fullback because they don't give Fisiiahi (sp.) a full on run in top grade, the kid has scored 18 tries in 9 NSW Cup games, and was epic in his debut last year before injury. Have him at FB with Locke and Tupou on the wings, with Ropati & Hurrell in the centres, and that's a kickass backline.

The front row does hold them down and with the cash freed up by Maloney's exit they should be looking at getting a decent prop next season, and they would be right up there in terms of the top 4.
