Re: NRL player gets neck viciously broken in spear tackle

That video is horrific - what a f**king disgrace. Those three wankers should be in jail. Yes they should. But I wouldn't hold your breath. There are many tackles every week with far more intent to injure than this. This was careless, but also horribly unlucky. If you think these guys should be in j...

Re: Official Match Thread: BLUES v HIGHLANDERS

Good win but disappointing not to get a bonus point try. Benchy Marshall really stuuffed up an opportunity to score with his pass to nobody that turned over the ball and left us camped in our own 22 for the last 5 minutes. Yeah - running sideways wasn't wise... But then if Parsons could hit his f**...
