  1. Media, Counter-Media Counter-Counter-Media then BAM and the player is gone… I’m very tired of the carousel that happens every single offseason. FIX YOUR GAME NRL!!!

  2. NRL and the clubs are an absolute basket case… Its a real shame how amateurish the game has become under Greenburgs tenure.

    • Wasn’t Greenburge AT THE dOGS IN 2002πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸΆπŸ’©

    • Why? He’s gone to brisbane. If anything, Nikorima might head to the warriors and let O’Sullivan take his spot in brisbane.

      • Rumor has it O’Sullivan’s father who works for the Warriors after being banned in Australia wants his son to take on the vacant position and not compete with the current NZ Test half in Brisbane, apparently negotiations have been happening over the past few days. Especially as young O’Sullivan was lured to the Broncos with the thought that Bennett would be his coach.πŸ’ͺβ“πŸ‘Žwith that still being uncertain, a stable position awaits in NZ.

        • Woody, I posted a lengthy reply to your post on the “Who dares predict the 2019 Broncos and Bunnies?” story.

          I think Russell β€˜s lingo is a bit to sophisticated…

          Choose a pill Woody, and “white” is not an option. Cheers.

    • Be careful what you wish for Kev, 20% of the NRL are Kiwi-born

      “110 Kiwi-born players are among the 533 total players listed in NRL squads, as according to the teams’ websites – just over a fifth of the league.” – 2017, Stuff news.

    • Boys!! Boys! This kid hasn’t played a game in the NRL yet and already you boys have moved in for the kill like 3 hungry lions and divided up the carcass. Well, I’m sure he must have come to the Sydney CBD at least once and passed through Redfern to do it so? πŸ˜‰

  3. Apparently Corey Norman has rejected a multi million dollar offer in the Super League to stay at Parra . Not sure what i think of this. He says he wants to stay to help the club get back to winning…. recent form suggests he is unable to do this, but if true and he shows the same commitment on the field then perhaps it will be a good thing.

    • Prefer Norman than Bennys Boy.You would be nervous if you were a half in the NRL and your club was looking at Moses

      • I think we need to lose Norman or Moses before 2019, because together they just haven’t gelled.
        I like, rate, both of them individually, but I think they are just too similar, too unpredictable, off the cuff, almost attention seeking type players, and without a stable organising half, it just creates chaos.
        I’d sign either of them in a heartbeat if you had the right halves partner for them, and if you had their buyin.
        I think Norman and Parra are fed up with each other, so there’s really no chance of him staying at Parra beyond 2019, so for that reason alone, I’d like him to move on now, and we give Moses 2019 to show us if he’s a medium/ long term fit for our club. If not, he moves on after the 2019 season.
        My biggest fear, but there’s also a slim chance it could prove to be massive windfall, is Norman and Moses playing together in 2019 for their future worth. If both want to stand out, to get/keep the big bucks on their next contracts (which is perfectly understandable), well I’m worried it could get even uglier.

        • Norman has had long enough to prove himself and re pay the club. He offers nothing but bad press. Moses gave up his holidays at the end of the season including a trip to Vegas to watch the Connor McGregor fight to get an early start at training. For me that shows a level of commitment that Norman just wouldn’t understand. The NSW SOO coach sees enough in Moses to put him in the emerging blues squad. Happy to keep Moses and will be more than happy to see the back of dozy Norman.

        • I dont rate either much but i much prefer Norman.Didnt think much of Moses at the Tigers and same with him at the Eels.He just dont seem a team player.At the Tigers i thought he held Brookes back and since he has been at the Eels Norman looks gone.I can see Norman leaving Parra and under right coach killing it.Moses i cant say the same

  4. I’ve said this before if I was parramatta I would be getting rid of Moses and Norman they are on massive overs and don’t deserve to be on that kind of money

    For 2020 I would like to see

    6: J Salmon
    7: D Brown

    I would like to see two rookies at the helm
    With the extra cash I would be going after some decent forwards and a very creative hooker

    I’ve seen Dylan play in the lower grades this kid is very good, I can see why the warriors want him.
    Parramatta need to keep him and give him a shot in first grade next year

  5. Why is it we all what to blame Our halves for the season from hell? There were another 11 players out there too. If you go back over the stats we only gave up on two or three games and truely believe we have a global culture issue. In the last 15 years we have been the best and worst team in the NRL. Why needs to be asked……..

  6. If NZ are do desperate, nikorima would do well and be great with a solid consistent player like green playing outside him.

  7. Papa smurf has helpers. We need to get real and trim hard in the off season. Our half’s are not being allowed to play there natural game. We missed Semi this year. Ferguson will make the difference next season and between him and Nathan Brown we should see our half’s doing what they do best. We also need to sign Hayne.

    • We definitely don’t need to sign Hayne.
      Massive distraction off the field and the last 3 seasons he has been with us we have won the spoon.
      Much much much much much better off without the Hayne Drain.

  8. What happened to innocent until proven guilty, he can be managed and was our only shinning light. Clint is not a talented NRL player yes he gets results becuSe he tries hard and when your surrounded by buggies you can look like an eagle. Surely you guys can see the benefits of a fit and health Hayne Plane….
