        • This from the LOTR master! “Sometimes irony can be pretty ironic” – William Shatner (Flying High 2).

          Imagine me small if it makes you feel bigger Gimli, LOL I’ve told you before I’m no hobbit, and Peregrin Took is a long way from Legolas “the legless”. I mistook you for Sméagol but I was mistaken Gollum. Keep searching you may yet find your precious! Hahahahahahaha

          “watched too many movies you have”

          I don’t get it? Is that a bad thing? 😉

        • hahaha what the hell are you even saying your the biggest spinner on here. surpassing even believethat and broncomatt whether your a Pippin or a golum don’t worry I’m here for you buddy ☺
          I bet you know every word to Beverly Hills cop 1 2 and 3 LOL

          “your the biggest spinner”

          I’m no Warnie and you are no Bradman (haven’t seen you hit a 6 yet!). Comparing me to believethat and broncomatt, seriously? That’s how you are going to play it? I was just having fun (as I have with st47 and batman and others who get it) but you are starting to get a little too salty for me to keep up what was meant to be lighthearted banter and I’m not going back in the box for anyone so enjoy your Dungeons and Dragons alone from now on Gandalf.

    • Was always going to be an audition for a couple of spots.

      I’d say whoever performs well here will go a long way to filling the gaps in the forward pack and backline.

  1. They may be crappy Northerneel but there not over the cap !!! Let’s see how your lot go this year I’m sure Semi has all Parra fans at the top of his prioritys ,he won’t make it past RD10

    • He’s actually not going to the 9’s.

      At least not yet – His court appearance isn’t until after the comp I believe … so his passport will remain confiscated unless he is granted permission by the courts.

      Unless any Parra supporters know more?

      • a decision has yet to be made on whether he will be named to go, if he is named, then he will only be able to travel if he gets permission from the court….as long as that permission doesn’t extend to viva la France I will be happy.
        I would be very surprised if he BA doesn’t name a strong squad, which will naturally include the trailer.
        Something about wrighting the ills of 2016.

  2. where are the overated trbojevic sisters? manly not playing them because theyre scared the crap c@nts are gonna get injured lol.

      • our main squad will be going to england to play an extra game, so our young guns will most likely be playing nines for us.

        • Hahahahaha Your main squad playing in England… Every year the Broncos tag along like an unwelcome relative at Christmas. At least the Sharks, Cowboys, Rabbitohs, Roosters, Storm EARNED their right to be there! Even bridesmaids get married eventually DoorMatt.

      • That’s funny mate. good one. I’ love to see the result of him pulling Taupua’s hair. BANG, night night James. That’s what he needs. A good old fashioned flogging.

      • Ha ha.
        He’s running that new singles area for the 9’s. He’s in charge of doing the girls hair. He has experience.

        • Some will cry “poor taste” but “That’s Gold!” batman. Seriously, take that mask off 😷 and take a bow!

    • Matt, there usually a bit of fun banter on this site, sometimes some well constructed thoughts, but everytime from you it’s just baseless and poorly conceived bitching about every team but your own. Grow up, we’re all bored with it

      • Imagine how shocked saints fans are that Broncos signed there, now average at best, half back to play centre or anywhere for that matter

        • Clean bowled FF2016! And DoorMatt is STILL thinking of a come back. Hahahahahahaha
          Anything yet DoorMatt? Tick tock, tick tock…

      • Dude your not in a position to critique on intelligence , those examples of simpletons in your science text book are actually of you , doormatt are you on a benifit of some sort ? Centre link ? doormatt I’m very happy that I go to work and contribute to supporting those that arnt real good at supporting themselves , just like you doormatt ! For the safety of the public and your local community I’m happy to support your and more importantly isolate you from the general public , whilst it wasn’t a problem in the past ,stupidity it appears has become contaigious , you have been sniffing seats again ,,,, now your that stupid that you believe bindi can bring something to your sinking club , it’s ok doormatt tonight I’m putting $5 bucks under my daughters pillow for the tooth fairy , like you she’s a donkey fan ,,, big fan the tooth fairy is ,,,, does she talk to you doormatt ? The tooth fairy ???

          “Dude your not in a position to critique on intelligence”

          Damn straight! “intelligence” and “DoorMatt” are an oxymoron (oxymoron = a moron who is an oxygen thief!)

  3. Think tapau has to go because don’t you need one of your top 5 on the books to go??
    I may be wrong but if that’s the case we have the options of

    1 dce (wouldn’t risk it)
    2 snake (if plays then he has to stay on)
    3 matai (can’t play but still on the books atm)
    4 tapau
    5 walker
    So out of the last 2 tapau would be my choice. Plenty of backs there playing for round 1 spots
    Plus looking forward to seeing. Young tom Wright have a go, herd he may go alright

      • Hence my tribute to snake a few posts back. I don’t think it will be too long until Slater joins him on the side lines.

      • I am sure snake won’t play again either, but both he and matai are still officially on the books and top end earners, that’s the reason I believe tapau is in the sqaud

    • I’m sure that Lawrence not only playing but being named captain will put a smile on crowy3301’s face (as we both have a rap on BL). I hope Lawrence can get through the year uninjured and get some serious game time as the Sea Eagles need a “senior” forward leader and Lawrence can definitely contribute in that area as one of the last remaining original playing group.

    • How many FB and 5/8’s do we want , Baz must go to bed with headaches cause at training he sees 2 of everything ,
