Re: Official Rugby League & Rugby Union Thread

Great game, but fuck sake refs are still a joke (for both sides). Really inconsistent and really annoying.

Positives for Wests: Tedesco did great at fullback, Moltzen looked good at halfback, Beau Ryan was great, and Blair has slotted in nicely in our forward pack.

Negatives for Wests: Chris Lawrence still hasn't learnt to pass the ball. Our middle defence is still as flimsy as all fuck. Too much reliance upon Marshall to create opportunities in attack.

Roosters played good footy, and barring dem interchanges (cheap, but funny I guess), were the dominant side and deserved the win. Pearce and Mortimer seem to have gelled as a combo, Friend was great out of dummy half, and Masoe was damaging with his hitups. The new kid, Moga, was a fucking beast out wide and will bring a lot of pain to many opposition players this season.

Panthers, Bulldogs, Broncos, Roosters, Eels, Storm chasing Manly Sea Eagles prop Darcy Lussick

Darcy Lussick is the hottest forward prospect coming off contract this year.

Darcy Lussick is just 22 years old and has never started an NRL game, but he is being chased by Phil Gould, Des Hasler, Anthony Griffin, Brian Smith, Steve Kearney, Geoff Toovey and Craig Bellamy - and has already with some of league's biggest names.

The Manly Sea Eagles forward debuted only in round 14 of the 2011 NRL premiership, and he is averaging 26 minutes of game time each week.

Lussick has played just seven NRL games, each off the bench.

Parramatta Eels are rumoured to be ready to outlay huge money for Lussick, who was suspended for three games late for his involvement in the "Battle of Brookvale".

Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs also fancy their chances given that Lussick has a good relationship with former Manly Sea Eagles and new Bulldogs coach Des Hasler.

One source close to Lussick said: "Manly will be hard-pressed to keep him."

Lussick returns to Sydney on Tuesday morning with the Manly side who contested the World Club Challenge in Leeds.
what a load of shit. Could teams stop trying to buy all our gun young players? First Hoppa got offered an obscene amount of money by the Eels (they'll be done for rorting the cap by a huge amount in 2014 unless the cap is increased after the next round of TV deals) then Foran and DCE were linked out, Buhrer has been linked elsewhere and now Lussick.

We'd be far better off to lock him up and get rid of Kite or King who are getting past it and they don't have long left at 30 years of age. Give King a role elsewhere in the club when he's finished playing. Thats the trouble with having the cap so low, you can't build a team and keep them together anymore. They should introduce a system where you get allowences in the cap for players who have shown loyalty to your club. Take Glenn Stewart for an example, one of the best 2nd rowers in the game, played for us since 03. Under a loyalty system say we pay him 450k a year, and we get a reduction of even something like 50k every 5 years and 5k for every year after that. We'd have him down for 380k on our cap but if anyone wanted to buy him on the same money, it would be 450 on their cap. Would reward staying loyal to your club rather than chasing money (fuck you Hoppa ).

Agree on the Reds & Crusaders, but I think the Stormers will take the SA conference again.

Re: Official Rugby League & Rugby Union Thread

well to be fair i think that report is utter bullshit. No quotes and the suggestion that the Storm would go for him is laughable.

True, Melbourne will be using as much of their money as possible to try and resign Cronk

The Australian Rugby League Commission has announced a change to the 2012 Telstra Premiership Finals Series at today’s NRL Chief Executives’ meeting in Sydney.

On the day of the official season launch, the Commission informed clubs that it had accepted a recommendation to move away from the McIntyre system which had been a part of the Telstra Premiership since 1999.

For the first time since 1996, the competition will split the top four and the bottom four finalists into separate pools in week one of the Telstra Premiership Finals Series (The Australian Rugby League used such a model in both 1995 and 1996).

Whereas the McIntyre system ‘seeded’ the eight finalists so that the top four played the bottom four, the 2012 system will see the top four teams and bottom four teams split into separate pools in the first week.

“As the competition has become closer and the impact of ‘home and away’ finals matches even more significant, the system has become a source of increasing debate,” ARLC Chief Executive, Mr David Gallop, said today.

“The allocation of ‘home venues’ in the second week of the McIntyre system has been a particular concern.

“After going through a thorough process we are confident that this is the right time for this change.”

The recommendation to the Commission follows an extensive review process conducted by ARLC General Manager of Football Operations, Mr Nathan McGuirk.

“Over the past few months we have been conducting a review with clubs and with the recently formed Competition Committee,” Mr McGuirk said.

“An overwhelming majority of clubs have shifted their support away from the McIntyre system and to one where the top four teams play each other in week one.

“It offers greater protection for the top four teams and the possibility of even closer matches.

“Each of the top four teams needs only to win two finals matches to reach the Grand Final, while the bottom four ranked teams must win three.

“The Minor Premiers and Team 2 are each guaranteed two home games.”

The Telstra Premiership finals system will continue to be played on the basis of ‘home city’ venues in week one and two and ‘home region’ venues in week three.
Not a fan. The AFL system is predictable (top 4 reverse their week 1 matches in week 3), and the McIntyre system allowed for a myriad of possibilities. Hopefully I'm mistaken, but I doubt it.

I like the change. No more headscratching and "if this team wins, but that team loses" discussions on the first weekend of finals
