General NRL 2019 Round 1 - General Discussion

Anyone else get the shits every time the commentator says Var-Rey for Whare?
I actually wonder whether the coaching they've had around names was no good to start with.

The only way I see them getting V' instead of F' for Whare are as follows:

They got a Polynesian coach across all the dialects . . . I'm sure some Pacifica cringe at Dale husbands Maori pronunciation of Samoan and Tongan names.

Or they got a toothless Maori from Whanganui . . . I say that tongue and cheek Cuzzies.

It's a long season. I reckon Parra will still battle for wooden spoon. Penrith will get better. They've started at rock bottom, bad distractions pre-match. They will improve.

Panthers are not what they are cracked up to be, not yet anyway.

Split on this one.

Tits are my team 2 but I will be happy to see CNK win.

All eyes on the Pom half.

Raiders are stacked with ESL....wow that's really cool.
