I think with the finals getting close , some self preservation has defence being neglected.
These huge scores are puzzling.

SuperCoach Gould did the same thing with Cleary- paid for a 12 month holiday. He's a generous man.


Now he wants to sign Cleary again, involving a massive payout to the Tigers.Wacko SuperCoach Gould is a SuperKlutzGus administrator.Big smile

   The big pat on the back to league is they are winning the punters to League by not causing the commission 0f 2.5% to rise as Racing is destroying much of their following ... 10% NSW.
    The hex of hell on them & V'Landy.

Ok here they are. Playing the following this week:


Cowboys/Broncos (already on Cowboys 2.25 with PtsBet yesterday & Broncs 1.7 with UBET yesterday - UBET is all money back I’d lose by 6 or less)
Rabbits/Roosters
Titans/Panthers
SeaEagles/Bulldogs
Raiders/Tigers


All these will be played by backing the outsider with PtsBet and the fav elsewhere. Most favs will be backed using UBET money back for lose by 6 or less promo. Some will be backed partially or entirely with other books where the price is much better than UBET.

As mentioned ALL games have a profitable expectation when played like this using be PtsBet promo. ALL games other than the Storm/Sharks game meet my personal criteria for playing. I simply reduce the number I play for longevity reasons.

This one is for the oldies- Ken Irvine or Mal Meninga- who do you rate higher as a player?

I read Paul Kelly from The Australian saying Irvine was better. I never saw Ken Irvine so I can't say for sure but looking at his height/weight- 5'8" 12 st 4lbs- I reckon he would get smashed playing today, while Mal would be a star in any era.

Saw Irvine live many times, he was essentially a winger , different body shape to big Mal, who was huge compared to Irvine who was a typical non steroidal lean mean sprinting machine , ran 100 yds in 9-3, sec. raced a good racehorse one day at Kembla called Gili, a gimmick , horse to quick, big Mal built like three quarter Harry Wells who played same position, Mal a far better overall player imo, but would never beat Irvine in a sprint, nor could many others, Ian Moir (Souths) comes close.

Crazy game! Cowboys try with 3min to go wasn’t ideal but 2nd best result with all Broncos stake returned as cash. +$125

Thought I was home with the Bronco's 12 in front with not long to go.

    The scoring has been so unpredictable . & high.

Taking advantage of the offers has been a bonanza for the professionals.

Me too. I was happy to see the 1st cowboys try as it took them over the 20pt mark and when he missed the conversion they were still 8 behind which was beautiful! gelati happens though and you can’t win them all. I did benefit from Manly conceding 4 trys in 7 min a couple of weeks ago so can’t complain.

Totally different game today Croca .     Those hero's of years ago would struggle to get a game today.
   St George had to win year after year as they had all the good players.
As an old full back I would have died in the arz to have Mal Maninga coming at me at full steam...   His thighs were like telegraph poles ...   I can't give a comparison as i've never been hit by a train.
League with it's salary cap and the pace of the game is a brutal encounter.
   The old game was like today's ,but being played in slow motion.

There's a lot of truth in what you say Macca, and I respect your opinion, there are things today that make the game so much ( or appears so) faster, they play on billiard table like grounds, sythetic balls, not leather, have synthetic shorts up there arse not daggy ones hanging round their knees, short sleeved guernsey's ( also synthetic) , they have " trainers" running around on the field after them with a bottle of water or a hankie to blow their nose on , they play for 20 mins then have rest, after the game a hot sauna, rub down, nutritionists waiting on them hand and foot , get driven home in business class a/c bus drinking what ya like , they don't work, play pro football, some on a mill. p/y, not like one of my favourites Noel Kelly, his mate picked him up 12-30 pm from the butcher shop sat. morn in his ute straight to the SCG to play, worked 5 1/2 days a week and trained once a week, I'd rather watch him mate than two thirds of the Prima donna's that play today , I know I cling on to the past but I've seen both sides of the penny and I know which one I prefer best, there ain't many immortals in this lot.

When Reg Gasnier was at his best he was a rep for ETA as his Job.

What would he earn today.

I need Easts up with 9 minutes to go.

Souths were well below their best, played a man down after a minute, and Sam Burgess had a shocker again ... and they still should have won.
In reference to every post in the Trump thread ... "There may have been a tiny bit of license taken there" ... Ok, Thanks for the "heads up" PT!

5 penalties in quick time early gives opps NO chance .

Refs are damaging league = big time
