LFGGG BANNER!

The Duke

Let’s go banner. Break yo hoodoo.

The Duke

The bitter tea of general chaos. I have Farnworth but he scored against the Roosters.

cookingeggs

2 questions: 1. What comp is on TV right now. Looks like the Broncos and Roosters but I can’t make it out with all that tape.
2. Who’s boneheaded idea was it? It’s laughable and childlike in my opinion.

The Duke

The R.L.P.A. headed by Clint Newton.

Temple Guard

Really dislike the Broncos Jersey… It feels like I am watching the Storms

Hoffa

It does look very Storm like

Temple Guard

I like both Teams but I am Bronco… dominant Gold (Yellow )

Where did the Walsh line break come from?

jblaze

Shhhh.

Hoffa

Haha, as a non owner I intend on being as loud as possible about it

yearofthebogan

Didnt he break the line before passing inside to the guy that got tackled by the ref?

CBB

I don’t know but I’ll take it

nrl

Well at least teddy got his break even of 7 at half time.. one of those SuperCoach years for me unfortunately:-( lol

zooperdooper32

What about accidentally captaining him

nrl

Oh dear lol

TLR

Oh no. As a Roosters supporter, I’ll offer a PSA – get rid of them out of your teams.
They are a shadow of their former selves.

jblaze

Congrats patty on his first try in the nrl. Well deserved.

j.d.

Punishing watch as a Walsh owner, actively avoiding the play for some reason

j.d.

Now the ref robs him of a TA

Roosters have to be the most overrated team of all time. Apart from Collins for QLD, and Manu for NZ, you really shouldn’t be picking any of them in a rep team. Luckily Teddy had some big credits in the bank, but he isn’t in the top 3 fullbacks NSW could have chosen on form.
Massive rebuild required, could take a few years

The Duke

You’re correct. A clean out. The halves next year should be Smith and Walker. JWH needs to retire, along with Keary. Young is a good winger pickup and will replace Tupou at the end of next year.

yearofthebogan

You forgot the power of the sombrero. In 2010 they went from wooden spooners to grand finalists the next year. Teddy is still a very good fullback – what is he meant to do, carry the entire team. Remember at Wests he pretty much did that and they could still only win 5-6 games a year. There forward pack has been ordinary the entire year. Theyve missed Crichton for most of the year, Radley’s had more days off work then a millennial, they bought Lodge who is garbage, etc. Brandon Smith is an ordinary hooker. He just cant hit the… Read more »

trentmark

Radley is a liability, he is always a week off a suspension. Crichton has to be moved on, like a lot of people that go to Amsterdam, he never returned the same. JWH is a handy reserve, but their younger forwards haven’t stepped up. The Butcher boys are handy, but not rep level players. Sualii will be moving on. Manu hasn’t had any good ball, the halves won’t be winning a comp any time soon, Keary needs a tap on the shoulder and they should target a genuine 7. As for Teddy, still a great player, but getting on now,… Read more »

Good assessment and you’ll get no argument from me. This season has been a disappointment for Roosters supporters though I’m sure it has brought delight to most everyone else.

TLR

Tired old sombrero trope; boring.

As for the rest of your post, most of it is spot on. So I ask you then, did the donkeys need the ref to help them as much last night given how woeful the Roosters are and how wonderful the donkeys are at the moment?

TLR

Of all time eh? Really, most overrated of all time? They tried hard against the donkeys last night but many of the Roosters team are well past their best which means yes, a rebuild is required.

trentmark

They started the season as favourites, but are only in front of Titans, Dragons, Dogs, Tigers. And it could get worse yet. They might only be able to pick up one more win. It would rank up there.
But, the boss there is pretty ruthless, he isn’t afraid to move them on, be very interesting to see what they do in the off season, it isn’t a team that can challenge at the moment

zooperdooper32

While focusing on confusing my opponent, I forgot the most important aspect of SuperCoach.
CAPTAINED TEDDY, SEASON GONE!!!!

Irbox

Ouch

CoG

0/0 season saved.
Hard luck zd. Its close to 32 weeks to get redemption

vertigo

He’s fking rubbish these days. NSW only looked good in game 3 when they cut him out of backline plays.

Reminds me of milford – can’t break tackles anymore as he’s too slow off the mark.

DNA

He isn’t as quick as he was but he did get over the line twice. I agreed with the commentators for a change the try he scored was ok. The defender deliberately took himself out. To me it was Manu who was terrible. They should both be ok for the run home against easier opposition.

trentmark

Hard for Manu to look good when the halves can’t give good ball or create anything. Keary isn’t the same player after all his knocks

TLR

Breaks my heart to agree with you on your post.

Weister

Tough luck, Zooper. If he did ton up then you’d be lauded as a genius.
Such is the world of SC…

A bit late this week Banner Stats 2023 I think we would have to call last week a draw. No golden point for the banner rivalry. Last week Nathan Cleary scored 81 points in his return from an injury game. Just below his 23 average of 83.4, but above his 22 average of 79.9, and his projected score 69 points. The first 21 weeks of Banner scores have been 83,48,79,62,74,124, 85, 40, 90, a DNP, 59, 40, 77, DNP, 89, 117, 27, 97, 45, 58 and 81 (two banners in week 2) 7 wins out of 21 weeks (including 2… Read more »

G’day guys, interested to hear people’s thoughts on Cleary vs Hynes. I currently have Hynes and SJ. I sort of made the continue decision to hold SJ for his run home and being somewhat a pod now. I have 5 trades left after beinging latrell in for SKatoa this round. I know it’s all crystal ball stuff but do people think Cleary over Hynes is the way to go or just sit tight with Hynes and save the trade. It think both runs home have good games and tough games for the panthers and sharks but panthers obviously the better… Read more »

yearofthebogan

If you have a very good option to play this week to cover SJs bye Id consider TD. If your 17th player isnt some chance of getting a 60-70 Id consider Cleary. We are all getting skinny with trades. The question depends on how lucky you feel with injuries/suspensions and how well you can cover certain positions. I personally dont intend to use any more trades on my forwards as I think the upside are with the halves/backs. But my FRF is skinny, so Im taking a risk that I could get stuck with AE each week if Horse gets… Read more »

MenziesBeaver

yeah my reserves are Isaako, Nikora, Garrick, Walker this round so all have a good chance of getting that 60 point score.

trentmark

Hold Hynes. He has been the best player the last 2 years

MenziesBeaver

Cheers guys, yeah its probably not a bad shout to just hold and assess over the next few weeks.

bumbum

I’m not sold on the Cleary hype. He may just cruise into the finals. Lui who is playing for a new contract just like when he was playing to make the origin team Cleary aloud him to do more work then usual. This is simply my observation. He may well come out and kill it. I’m sticking with Hynes and SJ for now

The Duke

Exactly my feeling. My only planned trade for the foreseeable future is Tohu to Munster.

I love Tohu Harris, like Simon Mannering before him he’s always my first pick in the 2nd row but his hell for leather playing style has caught up to him.

Munster will be the beast we all know he can be.

bumbum

I’m keeping Tohu because most people still have him. But understand offloading him due to minutes

The Duke

Sure. He funds a hole plugger. That’s the only reason I’m selling.

Soundasapound

Btter trade for h2h with 5 trades left?:
TU: Nikora to Latrell
TD: Bateman to C. Walker

Evil_Team

Consider doing both – if you have depth and can cover their bye.

Soundasapound

It will weaken my 2rf too much unfortunately so can only do 1 of the above.

bumbum

1 Nikora and Cody or 2 Bateman and Latrel.
Option 1 sounds safer

Anyone have the final word if trell is in? Their Twitter was still abit ambiguous. Just a mention he isn’t playing marbles

douche

I watching him warm up on tv

boink

Thanks! Hopefully he makes it on the field!

Colossal Von Crumpet

He is participating in the warm up on Fox. Hoops and Blocka are hyping him up.

The Duke

Trell is at fullback. Listed on NRL.com

Keyser Soze

Is Munro still injured or Milne ahead of him?

ubeaut

Both I think
