    Well that's mostly because the content put out on Fox League is rubbish outrage based trash that equates to 3 old boomers yelling at each other while Yvonne Sampson sits there and watches, while the content on NRL.com was actually really good.

    Pretty sure there is another thread for that chat though

    Given I get Kayo for $5 a month I might can Stan Sports until Super Rugby starts again.
    KAYO has BEIN as part of the package.

    I am 99% certain......

    "SMH tweeting that Noah Lolesio has been called into the squad."

    I actually think this could be OK. Cooper, good as he's been, represented a risk in the UK where Eddy Jones & Co would have really applied the blowtorch. Without Kerevi to take the hard runs - not sure. JOC has much more experience over there. I'm happy enough.

    I assume this is a reaction to the response about Beale being a possibility.It appears 90% of the rugby media have finally realised that he's a tool

    So with the Autumn Internationals underway, any thoughts on the "caterpillar ruck" tactic? I hope the referees will police the "use it" law a bit better. Been watching the Premiership a bit watching Ryan McCauley.

    I'm not hopeful on what I've seen. Ferinstance the highly experienced Wayne Barnes regularly makes the call then allows another 4-5+ seconds deliberate slowing down. One one occasion the 9 reached in and dragged the ball then calmly used his foot to paddle it back past 3 late arrivals. Play on, FFS!

    For a refreshing change of pace, have a look at the ox nche yellow card from staffers vs taffys, I only just watched that game today and that constitutes the absolute best work I've seen around use of video to confirm a yellow card. The conversation was clear and concise with (IMHO) brilliant application of law appropriate to the situation

    Yep. Most would have talked themselves into a YC for the first non-offense. I thought he handled the whole match equally as well. Very clear communication with all concerned.
    Considering the conditions, it was a ripping contest.

    Yep, really enjoyed the watch, which is kinda interesting given Sa stuck to their game plan pretty strongly.Surprised they didn't take more scrums on penalties though. Their maul was being defended pretty well, but their scrum looked unstoppable

    Monsieur Poite has done SFA to ease my frustration with the Catterpillar Ruck.

    Quade Cooper has made James O'Connor look like a bricklayer not an international flyhalf.

    Spent far too little of the game running with the football, I might not have watched closely enough but it looked to me like he didn't carry to the line before the 70th minute.

    It pains me to say he looked sharper with Beale at 12 than the bloke whose been standing next to him for the last year.

    Ra need to make an emergency phone call to kintetsu to buy Quade out of his contract and place him in an Aussie team

    In fairness samu kerevi is for me the biggest difference from the SA games to all others this year

    I was discussing former Force tight head prop Ollie Hoskins, now with London Irish, over on Green and Gold a few days ago.

    But apparently he has now been called into the Wallabies squad as cover. I don't have a link for it, though.

    Y'never know. Always had potential for higher honours.
