A thread for all 2018 Round 12 team lists, discussions, news and views. Serves as a team list thread and game day discussion for all games through the week (besides the Warriors one of course :) )...

You would not believe all those years ago that Wayne would be still going.

Good win for the old man...there will never be another Wayne Benett.

Speaking of which, anyone know what went down between Bennett and Gordon Tallis?

Tallis seems to take a pot shot at him weekly on Matty John's show. Seems weird given he spent 8 years under him at the Bronc's.

Parra are seriously shite this year.
The only forward with any go forward and defensive venom is Moeroa.
Mitchell Moses is seriously overrated .I was at a Warriors game at Leichardt Oval about 4 or 5 years ago and in the Under 20's game there was some kid playing at fullback swearing and yelling abuse at his team mates every time any of them made any mistakes.He was well over the top and I said to my son that I never wanted to hear him carrying on like that smart arse.
He later kicked a couple of goals and the ground announcer said his name was Mitchell Moses.I had heard of him previously as he had a bit of a wrap on him even then.
I said to my son that he would have to be careful if he got to first grade as a lot of senior players wouldn't put up with that.............if you listen carefully you can often hear him still carrying on like a pork chop.
He shouts the talk but can't walk the walk,if he is in Freddys Origin team Freddy is as thick as he sounds and the Queensland roll will continue.
Parras spine is seriously deficient.Cameron King is very average,Moses has speed and a good punt but overall isn't polished enough,Gutho is enthusiastic but inconsistent and Norman drifts in and out of games and makes too many mistakes.They appear not to be able to enact the game plan.

As for Brisbane they won but the same can be said for their spine.McCullough is over-rated,Nikorima is utility bench cover,Milford is totally inconsistent and Boyd is on one leg.
Eels will finish last and the best Brisbane can hope for is to sneak into the eight if some others drop their bundle but I think that Manly,Raiders,Knights and possibly the Cowboys will all be going better by years end.

the season is finally starting to settle down. Im looking at the draw and i think i can pick winners for 5 games easily, leaving only manly vs raiders and warriors vs rabbits as the not sure. BTW im picking the panthers over the dragons. And next week the byes start and Origin starts and everything goes back out the window for a month or so. Maybe Origin mid season does have a place, after all it keeps the betting interesting.

LOL the Broncos timekeeper standing next to Jennings. Ain't no way anyone fucking it up this week.
This is the NRL things will run smoothly for a couple of other weeks until some other basic mistake happens. I'm picking either some time keeper gets caught up in a game and we have a 94 minute game or a team nearly gets in front in a close game only for the full time siren to go off in the 72nd minute.
