"Woods grew up living above the newsagent in Leichhardt’s Norton Street, Tedesco went from tearing his ACL in his first Tigers game to tearing apart rival defences and being offered more than $1 million per season to stay.

He won’t. Instead of being an idol at the Tigers, he’ll be just another star at the Roosters.

In front of those infamously fickle Tri-colours crowds, with whom the fans of other teams may now have more in common with than they realise."

What a load of shit. Every club has fickle fans. The most loyal and consistent with crowd numbers are probably the Knights.

Mitchell in , SKD to play for Wyong this week.
I love SKD , but he gives me a heart attack (or 5 ) every game , his chip and chase last weekend , was the final straw.
Mitchell Toupo combo.

Then we may need to work on the Manu Fergo combination.
But , we need to find more ball for Manu , we keep going left , give him more ball and some space.

Jake to start , but after 30 minutes he comes off , then comes back on 10 after half time.
He makes bad choices when he's stuffed.
You can use Carter or Watson for 20 minutes. , Leave them on depending on situation.

I cant fault the effort of everyone else except for minor lapses in defence , not wrapping the ball up.

By the time the ball is played, dummy half mends down to retrieve the ball, lifts it up and then passes, the defense is pretty well advanced . The top dummy halves are already down at the ball retrieval point when the ball is played and pass in one movement. Love the guy (now) but when Tupou is dummy half and lowers his 6foot 5 torso down to ground and stands up to pass I think the defense is already shaking hands with the first receiver.

Dragons 16 - us 5; Brisbane 15 - us 9; Souths 11 - us 4. These are the worst 3 with the other games being fairly equal except for Titans game which was 13 - 4 in our favour. From my recollections of the games many of these offloads are being popped out from under 3-4 defenders when the tackle looks well and truly wrapped up so what are we doing wrong? I figure that each offload is worth at least an additional 10 metres as the defense has probably gone back 10 awaiting the play the ball.

http://www.news.com.au/sport/nrl/jos...fbc417e54b0b95 Josh Papalii Test selection humiliates NRL over behaviour standards

MAL Meninga has been left looking foolish after Kangaroos star Josh Papalii was convicted of drink driving the day after being selected to play for the Kangaroos.

The Raiders wrecking-ball was convicted in the ACT Magistrates Court on Thursday following a revelation he twice called police to notify them he was drink driving.
Papalii pleaded guilty to a level three drink driving offence and was issued a $1000 fine and an eight-month driving ban.
He was charged with drink driving by police in January after he drove home from teammate Jarrod Croker’s engagement party in Canberra.
The court heard Papalii twice phoned police after 2am to warn them of a black car driving erratically.
He blew 0.123 and was charged with a mid-range drink driving offence.
Papalii told the court he made the phone calls to police “in order to prove a point”.
The jury is out on what he actually meant by this.
It was Papalii’s third serious driving offence.

He faced court in 2014 for *allegedly driving on a suspended *licence because of an unpaid parking fine, which saw him banned from driving for one month.
Earlier that year he was also forced to apologise for throwing a one-litre bottle of moisturising cream at another motorist.
His latest conviction comes just one day after Papalii was selected to play for Australia in the mid-season Test against New Zealand at Canberra Stadium on May 5.
However, his selection is now no certainty after NRL boss Todd Greenberg admitted there are ongoing discussions between the NRL and the Raiders over the possibility of additional action being taken against the 24-year-old.
Magistrate Peter Morrison said his decision to issue the fine and driving ban to Papalii took into account that Papalii would also face additional action from the Raiders and NRL.
It could cost him his Test jumper.
Panthers star James Tamou was rubbed out of a State of Origin game and fined $20,000 by the NRL for a drink-driving offence in 2013.
The NRL and Kangaroos coach Mal Meninga also took a strong stance against misbehaving players when it was decided that Sharks star Andrew Fifita would not be considered for Test selection last year because of an open NRL integrity unit investigation into his support for convicted one-punch killer Kieran Loveridge.

Eels winger Semi Radradra was also overlooked for selection last year because he was yet to face trial to answer to domestic violence charges.
Raiders chief executive Don Furner admitted Papalii may face further sanctions within the game.
“Josh is very remorseful for what went on today we were well represented today and we are happy the matter is over and we’ll move on from here,” he said.
NRL boss Todd Greenberg told Fox Sports the Raiders will first get to decide what type of penalty Papalii will face.
“We were aware that that was in court today and what I can tell you is there are some discussions happening right now between the NRL integrity unit and the Canberra Raiders and I’ll expect them to conclude those discussions pretty quickly,” he said.
“But like we always say, there’s always consequences for actions and that’s a decision that will ultimately be made by Canberra.”]]>

Just comes back after a 6 month layoff from a torn ACL and doesn't miss a beat. Like it ain't nothin'.

We've really really missed him. Napa and JWH must be especially appreciative.

He adds so much punch and power running through the middle.

Big motor as well. Natural footy player. Offloads. Footwork. The complete player.

One of our top 5 players imo.

Now stay fit you beast!]]>
