From The Couch: Round 23

Has Anyone On the Match Review Committee Ever Watched A Game of Rugby League? That would be the first qualification that should be checked. There is certainly nobody there with a high school degree, an IQ of a Bunker official, the common sense of a drunk rugby union coach or eyesight better than 20/60. That […]

From The Couch: Round 22

The Bunker, Home of the Moron: Bernard Sutton strikes at less than 50-50 in the Bunker and amazingly is still employed. His performance on Sunday in the Tigers-Cowboys game was beyond absurd. Disallowing the Javid Bowen try when sent up a try and no clear evidence was bad. To award James Tedesco a try when […]

From The Couch: Round 20

A Coach With No Idea: The Tigers may have won against the Dragons but that doesn’t make the decision to drop Robbie Farah any less moronic, particularly when his only alternative was Dene Halatau. To suggest the Tigers have a better attack without Farah is complete and utter nonsense. Farah is a class player, probably […]

The 2016 Willie M Medal: Round 20

The 2016 Willie M Medal: Round 20 Canterbury winger Sam Perrett has drawn into a tie of the lead for the Willie M Medal with just six rounds to play. He is the worst defensive winger in the premiership. His handling is poor. He is slow. How he is in first grade is beyond me. […]

From The Couch: Round 19

Sharp Finally Falls: Another humiliating reign of power has come to an end at Parramatta with Steve Sharp finally releasing his grip on the levers of influence at the Eels. He did so about six months after he should have and hardly went quietly, calling for the NSW Government to appoint an administrator to run […]

From The Couch: Round 18

Foran Leaves the Eels … and The Eels Should Be Stoked: Kieran Foran has walked out on Parramatta and his four-year, $5 million deal just eight games in. It was a major struggle getting Foran to the Eels but the club should be stoked that he has walked away. Foran has been a disaster at […]
