    I've only been to Parra Stadium once. Was seedy from the night before and had just attempted the Killa Burger challenge, so I probably need to go again sometime to experience it properly again. I study with UNE, so occasionally get free ticket offers, but haven't taken them up on it yet.

    BTW, just to explain my Broncos pick in the LMS, I think the Knights will struggle without Snowden and Mason. The inclusion of Cuthbertson from the bench can help the Knights, but if he is kept relatively quiet and the Broncos backrow trio of Thaiday, Gillett and Parker have big games, I think we can win in a vital much for us. Also, Broncos like almost always have a full 7 day turnaround, while the Knights only get the 5 days and played in a pretty tough match against the Roosters. I'll admit I'm speaking with my heart a bit, but I think $2.65 outsiders vs $1.50 Knights represents good value.

    Really don't understand why they appointed Stuart

    Guy is hardly the greatest coach and a prize arsehole to boot

    If, as is rumored, there is internal trouble at the Eels, he would be more likely to add fuel to the fire than bring people together

    There's hardly likely to be a spontaneous Parra chant started this season, sadly.

    Yeah he's certainly someone who polarises opinion. I wouldn't be surprised if the whole Hayne not playing this year thing is linked to some problem between them.

    My Dream Team next year will consist only of a squad of ex-Parra players. I'll get 25 easily, and they'll all go brilliantly. Justin Horo is this year's "WTF were they thinking?" contender.

    I can see why they went with him. They were hardly overflowing with good candidates for a rebuild of that magnitude.

    Parra's just a bit of a cluster**** generally. They really lack an experienced, quality player in the 27-31 age bracket. Hayne's a great player but no captain. I mean Reni Maitua and Ben Smith are part of the "leadership" group ffs.

    they're just ****, there's really not much to it, they just have a team of average players. tbf though a lot of the players they've bought recently were good but flopped when they got to parra, Sandow and Tonga being the obvious ones, and they got these shunts on big money which gives them no space to buy any new decent players.

    Tonga has been such a disappointment but he just hasn't got the great ball that he used to get from Thurston constantly. The thing which would **** me to tears if I were a Parra fan is that fundamental mistakes. Kickoffs going too far, penalties failing to find touch, just dumb football.

    They will be better next year, I wonder if 1 Hopoate 6 Hayne is any possibility?

    I'm grateful to Parra for taking that filthy lump of **** Sandow off Souths' hands. I have always been amazed at the raps he gets as I only see a fat small slow lazy grub who has brain explosions. He's got nothing. Top it off he's a nasty piece of work too with some "problems". Could only see him bringing his side down and toxifying the club's culture. Laughed like a maniac when he got bought. Held my breath when Crowe tried to get him back, then laughed again when he left.

    We were lucky the parra offer gave him the money he needed at the time otherwise he might have stayed. Showed where his loyalties lay too. Now we have Adam Reynolds. Honestly after 3 decades of stuff ups it was the best set of events Souths enjoyed for a long time.

    They've signed Norman on fair coin though; I doubt they'll be going with a Norman+Hayne halves combination. I think Norman will play left side half and swap between first and second receiver on the left side with Hayne, and they'll find someone else (Kelly or Sandow most likely at this stage) to play right side half.

    I totally forgot about the Wynnum Manly player.

    So yeah Hayne+Norman+Kelly/Sandow+Peats spine is decent enough.
