  1. He's earned it. Well deserved.
  2. He's the only footballer I've ever heard use 'coalesces' in an interview.
  3. When your coach, the one who orchestrates every movement, is called Simon Woodwind, these sort of puns are inevitable.
  4. Can't be many who score a perfect 10 in a losing side.
  5. Yep, that's right. Player has opened up the play by twenty metres, avoiding the ugly rolling maul, the ball has spilled free for anyone to swoop on. Sounds fine to me.
  6. And that's where I differ with him. Removing prior doesn't *have* to mean that. If it means what I'm suggesting, it'd be fairer all round.
  7. Don't think so. The rules allow for someone to make a legitimate attempt to dispose when tackled, without penalty.
  8. Let's try a thought experiment, imagining what would happen if there was no prior opportunity rule. 1. Player takes possession, avoids tacklers, instigates play. 2. Player takes possession, is tackled correctly, makes an attempt at correct disposal, umpire immediately calls for a ball-up. 3. Player takes possession, is tackled correctly, makes no attempt at correct disposal or disposes incorrectly, umpire rewards tackler with a free kick. 4. Player takes possession, is tackled incorrectly, umpire pays free kick to player. Does this make a messy situation simpler? No
  9. As soon as anyone brings up 'greatest ever' the discussion is thrown open to the history of the game, isn't it? Besides, Bradman isn't known as the greatest ever because he scored the most runs of any cricketer ever, it's because of his amazing average. By that measure, Peter Hudson is the top, with a 5.64 goals per game average, superior to Plugger's 4.84. But I'm just quibbling. Lockett was a legend, undoubtedly.
  10. 'Greatest forward'? Bob Pratt might have something to say about that, and so would Peter Hudson.
  11. Does anyone know how you can get the member thank you cheap donuts on Sunday by showing your membership card when you've opted for mobile membership and don't have a card?
