gallen v sbw -

I agree with you macca...it COULD be easy work for sbw. thats what i thought as soon as i saw gallens first few fights and stood next to him at a geale sparring session one day. he is too small for a HW....very short in stature. and he gasssed in his first few fights. however, his fitmess has improved as he got experience...but its against guys who arent boxers.

sbw gassed badly against botha, and they pulled a rort and shortened the fight to ten rds during the fight. he has been 8 rds with genuine heavyweights, albeit very average ones. but guys who have been around the block. sbw hasnt fought since 2015... is his body still able to handle boxing?

if he is in good health physically....sbw has too many advantages over gallen. id back him but id like to see him have one or two fights beforehand.

I can't take any rugby league player who turns to boxing seriously, they have turned boxing in to a farce....but it's entertainment so I hope SBW and Peptide Gal knock each other's brains out

You cant knock em for getting in there. and its not their fault they get more media and money than most full time pro fighters. although i see the frustration with that, as full time pro fighters with stacks more ability do the most.

Gallon is compact and his firepower, short range.   The only full fight I saw of his , the opponent fat and exhausted in 2 minutes. Anyone with some boxing skills will " dance like a butterfly and sting him like a bee " .
SBW has had some experience at a better level , and gone to unan. decision 8 & 10 3 minute rounds .( Joke really ) NZ heavyweight ---- WBA international Champion . I'm sure Paul will need oxygen after 3 rounds .
You and I would beat em both --- ---   They wouldn't hit the aged & infirm ----.> Good luck to them if they get a quid .
   I'll pay the $60 for self , family & friends watch Horn again. December I think.     Drop in if your free.

Tiaz.      The former Welterweight Champion of the World is a Politician.
I'm trying to decide if that enhances your statement or is telling us Politicians are scatter brained.
I'll settle for the latter with Turnbull in mind.

Can write off our boys already Tiger be lucky to be 1-5 after 6 rounds with that draw!

Still as long as things are roses in Red Hill, Bondi and at AAMI Park then all is good according to the NRL!

Tigers have bought really well.

their front row pairing of packer and matulino might be as good as any in the comp.

Looks likely Cronk headed to uncle Nicks rorters, finding it harder to believe the NRL isn't built to favor certain clubs.

The game is a joke if Cronk is allowed to sign with them, scrap TPAs and bring in a draft again to make it a fair system, who cares what Terry Hill did years ago

The Rorters are a blight on the game and the NRL administration couldn't run a chook raffle,absolute decades behind the AFL

Agree the third party agreements need to be scrapped and a common draft introduced if they want to make it a truely even competition over the long term.

As a tigers fan it makes me more and more likely to switch my attention to AFL the way the game is going, I've watched the club turn players like Tapau, Woods, Moses, Tedesco and Fifita amongst others into good players only for other clubs to come in and grab them.

This will never happen but, the NRLs only concern seems to be that the Broncos, Roosters and Storm are going good. Phil Gould even alludes to this now and again.

The NRL is a joke

Love the game but it's dying, the imbeciles running the game are destroying it

Roosters would be lucky to have 5,000 supporters, no juniors and outnumbered by Souths supporters in the local area but the NRL looks after them like no tomorrow

In the Sunday Terror there is an Easts salary roster with Cronk added to it on $1 million and they still make the cap. You will say the figures are bogus but the NRL know more than you and they accept them.Cool

Its still possible they could be under the cap, because a large portion of easts player salaries could be made up of third party agreements. uncle nick would hsve lots of corporate associates and friends to call on.

but here's the thing....TPA's cannot be arranged or finnaced by the club. it must be done through the player manager or outside the club entity. now we know that rule is an absolute farce and totally laughable. that suggests player managers have the business nous, acumen and contacts to go out into tbe corporate world and sign up player sponsors for hundreds of thousands of dollars. yeah right. the clubs are up to their necks in arranging TPA's and everyone knows it.

secondly...until we know what every club spends on TPA's, any suggestion this is an even comp based on the nrl salary cap is also a farcical joke.


make the TPA's public!!! so we can find out which clubs have spent $12 million on their rosters and which clubs have spent $8 million.

The Rorters let go 3 players so they could fit Tedesco in under the cap on 1.2 million a year, now they can sign Cronk without letting anyone go lol

TPAs are the biggest scam in the game

Pearce boosters always point to his Grand Final win with Easts in 2013. Pearce has never impressed me much and I've seen him in loads of SOO games, unfortunately. Like all Pearce performances the 2013 GF has left no impression on my memory so I thought I'd check the player rankings from the famous Pearce highlight game to see if he did anything notable.

"7. Mitchell Pearce
Helped the Roosters control field position with a solid performance, albeit one in which he rarely threatened in attack. 7."

Yes that sounds like Pearce.  Interesting to note the rating for the halfback on the losing side.

"7. Daly Cherry-Evans
After a quiet first half Cherry-Evans got the Sea Eagles back into the contest, making a couple of line breaks at the start of the second term and rolling in the grubber kick that led to Jamie Lyon's penalty try. A great effort to win the Clive Churchill Medal in a losing side. 9."
