Rabbitohs player Bryson Goodwin has confirmed that he will depart at the end of the season to take up a contract in the English Super League.

Goodwin will see out the 2017 season with the Rabbitohs, his fifth season with the Club having joined South Sydney in 2013.


Goodwin has been a honest and reliable toiler for the club and I wish him the best in England.

Bit of a shame they scored last rather than us but a very creditable performance today.

Handling much better than usual and impressive both in attack and defence.

What I was most pleased about was the celebrations when they were able to take Edwards back into the in-goal.  Great that they were still doing that even though we had the game in the bag at the time.

Too little, too late.

Souffs can't make the 8. Doubt they can win any of their next 3 matches (Chooks, Cows, Sharks) they might pick up some of the Drags, Dogs & Warriors before losing to the Storm and the Eels in round 26 😎

The Eels on the other hand (currently 8th) have the Tigers, Dogs, Knights & Titans along with a bye and the Rabbits in the last round ...... How will the Rabbits get past the Eels who are currently 8th  :chin:

We might win the rest of the games this season.

Or we might lose the rest of the games this season.

Or we might win a number somewhere in between

Of course JWH but I was trying to look at it like a realist.

Barring upsets I reckon I'd be pretty close, so it would take a lot of upsets to sway that.

I've noticed that four hookers from other sides are ex-Souths hookers.

Must be some sort of record I'd say.

Okay, so it's half time.

Time to consider this bet's options for the second half.

How many forward passes will St George (Ben Hunt) get away with in the second half?

2

4

6

or 8

I was watching a game on the television with the sound turned down - Saints are playing a team wearing a red jersey and black shorts and what looks like a black V on the jersey.

Norths used to play in those colours but they were "banned".

Has Essendon bought an NRL franchaise in the off season perhaps? I haven't been keeping up.

Read the other day that our rorter mates, the Roosters, don't have a salary cap.

They have a salary sombrero.

  :lol:

No over the past couple of years we sacrificed players like Michael Jennings, Jackson Hastings, Roger Tui-Masa, Mitchell Pearce, Aidan Guerra, Michael Gordon, Jayden Nikorima to name a few so we comply with the salary cap.

Whilst I don't agree with them letting Pearce go it should be noted that we would have still been able to fit him under the salary cap.

Souths have recruited dreadfully, and as Greg Inglis limps off with his umpteenth injury this should be drummed home to Souths that if you pay enormous amounts for aging players like Inglis & Sutton or overrated players like "the Burgess Brothers", and at the same time letting your best young players go like Luke Keary and Angus Chrichton, then you cannot go blaming anyone else. Souths supporters seem to be expert at blaming other people.

And remind me of the enormous 3rd party payments Inglis gets as well, not to mention Sam Burgess' media contracts. So in effect Souths are probably way over the cap them selves but are saved by the rules.

The circumstance of Keary leaving the club were the fault of the owner. And it probably horrified the other players.

He then sacks his experienced coach and goes all cheap and nasty when getting a new one.

Your owner has too much say in the running of the club and it is starting to show.

Souths have one of the easiest first 5 rounds in the draw and find themselves 0 and 2. It is going to be  along year unless they start playing for 80 minutes like they did in the first 40 minutes against Penrith.

Why would alleged be used in this instance ?

Is there doubt about the incident ?

"Our club apologises unreservedly to Greg Inglis for the upset caused by the alleged incident."

Regardless of the players lost, it is a mighty good feat to fit in Tedesco, Cronk, Friend, Corona, Hargreaves etc and still have room left for another origin halfback in Pearce. It is also reported that Ferguson is on $500k per year and he is a winger. I regard the Roosters and Broncos administration as being brilliant to always fit in their salary cap without any breaches especially with no evidence to the contrary. I am being sincere in this.

The issue that many have is those players will cost a lot more for other clubs. Before people say this must be a rort, ask yourself why many people to choose to live in city compared to the country or why live in an apartment instead of a house or work in a big firm instead of a small company. Prestige, localities, peers etc have a lot to do with this. The Roosters and Broncos ooze professionality, location and are talent developers. Most NRL clubs are not that great into developing players for a higher pay level too. Storm, Broncos, Roosters are prime examples where players have left after a few years for a greater pay day elsewhere. Very rarely do they pay big money for a high number of players.

My knights have paid more than they should have for some  players for the past 10 years which has greatly hindered our growth. The Melbourne and Broncos wingers would be on less money than other wingers in most clubs.

With the soft salary cap coming in next year, it will hurt the big clubs but level of impact will be interesting in next 5 years.

I thought it was extremely poor form from the crowd  emthdown

The NRL needs to nip this in the bud pretty quickly lest we get an Adam Goodes situation.

Burgess rubbed out for 2 weeks.

Not sure I agree with that.
