The try that wasn’t, or was it? Well it looked like a try to me, but the clowns maskeraiding as referees found a knock-on that wasn’t there. But the Cowboys are getting used to these type of decisions by now, especially around finals time, seven tackles etc. Good luck to Easts, or Sydney if you [...]
It took a week longer than expected, but the Canberra Vikings’ National Rugby Championship campaign is alive and kicking after a 37-18 victory over Greater Sydney Rams last Thursday.
The Vikings put their disappointing 28-23 loss to Perth Spirit in round one behind them as they notched their first win of the competition in relatively [...]
Hoodoo finally ends for St George, good one Ricky! Now the wait to see who get’s the spoon, Raiders must be firming in the betting. Oh there is always next year! But on reflection, no, we will probably be worse off, no Milford etc.
But really does anyone care anymore?
It took 153 minutes before the Raiders Holden Cup team scored to make it Raiders 6 against New Zealand Warriors 108 in the 2 games that they have played this year.

Jokes are already doing the rounds on social media poking fun at the evidently common sense challenged NRL player Todd Carney. Sadly I now know what ‘bubbling’ is. According to the Sydney Morning Herald it’s pretty big in Australia. Who knew?
Last week, Luis Suarez bit an Italian player during a world cup match, resulting in [...]
Todd Carney has been caught up in yet another scandal. This time a photo was posted overnight that showed the troubled Cronulla star urinating in his own mouth.
Reports are circulating that the Cronulla board have just acted to the news which has been sweeping social media all morning. Carney has been reportedly sacked.
A search on [...]
The Raiders have narrowly gone down 19-18 to the West Tigers overnight at Campbelltown Stadium.

However this enthusiasm [...]
I have just sat through the most pathetic game of what is purported to be rugby league served up by Brisbane Broncos and the Canberra Raiders and Brisbane did nothing wrong, so work it out.

Ricky Stuart said after the match that he was [...]
Shame the National Rugby League (NRL) doesn’t have promotion and relegation. That way it would at least force Canberra to put a decent team out there, or you would hope so. I have just suffered enough at 22 nil against Easts when I turned off. It appeared Easts were only going through the motions, it [...]

Brand Finance have some interesting news on the value of Australian sporting brands.
I’m buggered if I can see how the Penrith Panthers have the most valuable sporting brand in the country but I guess I don’t live in Western Sydney.

Looks like the Raiders Holden Cup team has caught the first grade disease (you know going through the motions not really trying to win) 18 nil against Penrith before I switched off, that was before half time.
