    Typical League fan though, one of the main reasons I've slowed out of following league in recent years.
    I find it hard to believe that AFL fans are no different? Correct me if I am wrong.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    He was just trying to prove that when Anasta is in good form, which is quality, mind you, that Lockyear is still much better, which is pretty damn good.

    I didn't mention AFL as a comparison and never intended to.

    To answer your querstion, I'm sure they are, but the ones on here (Wilson excepted) certainly are not.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    No one (not even Anasta's mother) would claim otherwise, and it was a childish knee-jerk reaction to my post.

    It's a playground reply. I never brought how good Lockyer was into it, let alone who I support or Braith. It's basically saying "yeah well whether he is injury prone and on his last legs doesn't matter because ur side sux".

    It's a fine reply if I happened to make any mention in the slightest of Braith Anasta.

    For sure they have the playing talent.
    They got no depth, or atleast players with any experience. Reckon this season we might see the affect of Gold Coast getting half the youth the Broncos usually get. Will struggle this season if they have two or more injuries.

    As a Broncos fan this side on paper is the least confident I've ever been at a start of a season in memory.

    It's just due to the forwards. Someone like a Nick Kenny is going to have to have a big season, likewise at least one of the newbies in Teo and Satu - Satu has potential, we'll miss TC a lot this year IMO.

    Robbo is likely to play centres in defense and on the wing in attack, if they go that way. There are some major questions over Williams' defense. Though I think it more the positional he gets caught out on the wing.

    Would be happy if Rodney was just an average bench player, that will do. If you need him in the starting XI you going to be struggling.

    Because pre-season was like 3 months away from starting.

    EDIT: Plus you go for the Roosters.

    Quietly tipping St George to improve 100% by winning at least 2 out of their first 7.
