    It's probably wishful thinking on my part but with the addition of Cronk and Tedesco I think the Roosters may pip Storm this time. I'm excited to see how they do.


  • Registered Users Posts: 784 ✭✭✭kirk buttercup


    yeah I think the Roosters are going to be very good this year , storm will also be very strong and the cowboys and broncos there and there abouts . the interesting ones for me will be
    the tigers - lets see what Cleary does ,he is a super coach
    the Sharks - Dugan joining could give them a whole new look imo and Matt Moylan Is a very interesting one.
    and of course for me the Doggies - I don't expect too much this year but there has been huge changes at belmore so fingers crossed.

    Late answer, apologies, but a more general reply on the subject, the nrl streaming service has a lot of trial and pre season games and has a free trial (just remember to cancel!)

    Sounds like it was a tight game so hope you found somewhere to watch it.

    Oh well, give me an easy life and a peaceful death.

    Hi - unfortunately I didn't get to see it - looks like JT is back and as good as ever. Really looking forward to the new season.

    Bulldogs fielded a Bunch of Young lads and beat the Panthers . Not sure if that's a reflection of the new setup at the bulldogs or the fact the Panthers seem to have alot of problems at the club . Interestingly wally Lewis nephew played for the Doggies and was really really good.

    Does anyone know exactly what way the games will be broadcasted this year?

    It seems a bit higgeldy piggeldy. First week they are showing Thursday game (fair enough) and 2 Friday games. Following week they're showing same, week after same but also two Saturday games, following week two Friday games and a Saturday game. There's no rhyme or reason that I can see.

    Bt and Setanta was much better they showed it all

    Couldn't agree more, it's really disappointing.

    Lists the games, and which ones Sky are showing.

    Thanks Tom Mann. I will only see the bulldogs Maybe 3 times before StateofOrigin. that's depressing reading . Why did sky buy it if they are not going to show it

    I'll keep my eye out for streaming alternatives, and think of some way within the boards rules about streams, to let people know!

    1st time watching NRL from over here. I assume/hope sky broadcast fox commentary seeing as they are related. Much prefer fox over 9.

    Scrappy early season game so far.

    A lot of the pre-game build was about Ben Hunt and he was impressive.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,994 ✭✭✭✭Tom Mann Centuria


    Good win for the Dragons in the end, couple of televised games tomorrow.

    Newcastle Knights v Manly Sea Eagles
    6:30am-8:50am

    North Queensland Cowboys v Cronulla Sharks
    8:50am-10:45am

    Fancy the mighty Knights to win and the Cowboys to be too strong for Cronulla.

    Oh well, give me an easy life and a peaceful death.



  • Registered Users Posts: 10,994 ✭✭✭✭Tom Mann Centuria


    Brilliant game between the Knights and Sea Eagles, very tense, thought it might end up a draw.

    They looked awesome - congrats!


  • Registered Users Posts: 45,594 ✭✭✭✭Mr.Nice Guy


    I managed to catch the Manly/Knights game. Delighted for the Knights. I'd love to see them get the top 8. Ponga was a standout.

    Happy for the Warriors too even though I went against them!

    Guys any way you could pm me on how you got to see the games today? It's okay if you can't.

    Sea Eagles Knights was on sky. Haven't found any decent way of watching fox games yet, channel nine is on a TV app for android.

    Sent a pm, but not much use I'm afraid.

    Shame the official app is only two devices at once otherwise we could have sorted out a shared account.

    Panthers too good for the Eels. Decent crowd there today, and all round there's been good crowds.

    Titans sneaked the win over the Raiders with the last play of the 80 minutes more or less.

    Eels crumbled late on. Good win for the Titans. I didn't see that coming. Some great hits in that one.
