Re: Useless Rabble versus Neigh Neighs

A fine debut from Canberra lad, and the next Jarr'ad Butlau'aau, Rory Scott... Valetini was brutal... just unrelenting - even chased down Koroibete in open play. Damon Murphy... not the best refereeing performance of the tournament so far. Scott was good for a rook. Glad the conveyor belt at 7 is c...

Re: Useless Rabble versus Neigh Neighs

Valetini was lethal, both sides of the ball. He’d be in the top 5 players in the country atm. Just a beast. His coach was saying afterwards that he’s close to their best trainer these days. We’ve waited so long for the messiah and I need to pinch myself now that he’s come. I wish I remembered the p...

Re: TJ Perenara to the Roosters

So the Roosters are apparently offering TJP just $130K to switch codes. To put this into perspective, he's currently earning around $700K in Japan for his one season sabbatical, and as a 69 test tier All Black his base NZR salary would be around $600K - $700K. The $130,000 deal the Roosters hope wi...

Assumedly the Saders lead is unassailable, but they'll miss those guys in a final. Nope the Crusaders can still miss the final if they lose their final two round robin matches.
