I wouldn't be writing off NSW just yet.

Surely Munster is a starter though in game 3 on current form?

Munster would be my pick as well but the bloody backflipper (DCE) had another good game against the Warriors tonight so they may still go with him.

Raiders look gooooone. Thought they looked good early on in the season but they're fading away fast. Dragons the same except injuries aren't helping their cause.

And what about the Roosters getting flogged? Didn't see that game but couldn't believe the score when I checked.

Didn't see it either but saw the score on the news. Anyone flogging the Roosters deserves applause. I hate them almost as much as Manly and Parramatta. Speaking of Parramatta, they were gifted a golden point win on a bogus penalty against the Bulldogs. One day the game may go a week without the refs deciding at least one outcome.

I might have been too conservative with twelve months, make that two years away!!!.....

Yep, marked 18 mtrs into enemy territory. I tried to find it on youtube but it hasn't gone up yet. Check out this one which was just 4 mtrs longer.

I rememebr watching Souths vs Dragons in 2009 where everything the Dragons did went wrong, and Sandow produced a line dropout that landed in play about the 60m mark, and eventually found the sideline about 15m from the Dragons goal line.

Was a cold windy game at the ANZ that night.

Should never have been signed up to the Titans. Such an over rated player.

Slagging off the coach won't help his case for going elsewhere. Apparently Parramatta's players don't want him returning and rightfully so.

Could be fun watching Hayne against Parramatta this week with Parramatta short priced favourites to smash the Titans.

Some pretty heavy truths in this article.

http://www.theaustralian.com.au/sport/op...0caa5ca7eb261a8

"The plane! The plane! The first image is of Jarryd Hayne with energetic feet, true story, blood on his grazed elbows, sweat on a crimson face, grunting and groaning with effort while he chased bullet passes from Colin Kaepernick during the training drills at Levi’s Stadium he needed to nail to get a contract with the San Francisco 49ers. He was a driven and determined individual. It was inspirational stuff. “Whatever it takes,” he barked at 49ers staff. American hustle.

The plane! The plane! The second image is of Hayne before the Gold Coast Titans’ match against the Brisbane Broncos in round 22. He was dawdling around Cbus Super Stadium with his backside hanging out the back of his shorts, with his mouth shut as if he was at a dinner party he never wanted to go to — but now he was stuck at the table. When he dropped a ball during the slow-motion runs before kickoff, he shrugged, sniffed and walked away. It was deflating stuff. Whatever it would take for the Titans, Hayne had no interest in doing it. The bludger. One of the best stories in Australian sport was 10 days from becoming one of the worst.

Or so we thought until yesterday’s emergency talks between Hayne, coach Neil Henry and Titans CEO Graham Annesley led to an announcement of more emergency talks before the emergency is resolved at a later date.

Hayne would want to have a blinder against Parramatta on Thursday night — assuming Henry doesn’t take Kevin Campion’s advice to dump him to reserve grade. Gold Coast board members spent four hours discussing the Hayne-Henry feud after the under-siege player and his under-siege coach had been asked to explain themselves to the under-siege hierarchy. You expected Henry and Neil to walk out and quote The Two Ronnies: “Well, it’s goodnight from me and it’s goodnight from him.” But Annesley and chairwoman Rebecca Frizelle emerged to announce that there was nothing to announce. The Titans made the decision to make no decision. “This is a really, really complex issue,” Annesley said.

The plane! The plane! His stint on Fantasy Island is over. No more big bucks can be guaranteed. No more NRL club. No World Cup selection. Potentially, nothing. It’s sad. It’s a reminder that no athlete can take his position for granted. Opportunities are vanishing for Hayne. The pain, the pain. Two years ago, he was on a bus. The bus was driving him down the Great America Parkway. He was the biggest sports yarn in America. He was a 49er. He captured the imagination of the Australian public for taking on a seemingly impossible challenge, for working his fingers to the bone, for respecting his employers, for reading the playbook morning and noon and night, for following coach Jim Tomsula’s instructions, for dotting all his Is, for crossing all his Ts, for doing everything that was asked of him to achieve something extraordinary.

Those early days and nights at Santa Clara were magic but then Hayne quit the NFL and it was the beginning of the end.

The pain, the pain. Rugby Sevens smelled like a disaster from the beginning because he was doing it for the wrong reasons. It became a disaster. His return to the NRL smelled like another disaster from the beginning he was going back to a partner he had already decided he could live without.

It might have been different at the Parramatta Eels but it was no secret he went to the Titans as a last resort. Because the coin was good. Disaster. Hayne is to blame. Henry is to blame, too. Man management requires the management of all types of men.

The plane! The plane! He could have made it work at the Titans. He just had to spill his blood and sweat like he did at the 49ers. Titans training will be interesting this week. Tell Jarryd that Neil said to tell him he’s playing fullback. Tell Neil that Jarryd said OK.

Hayne should have stayed on the bus at Santa Clara. He should have stayed on the Great America Parkway. That was the long-term dream. That was what his heart was set on. Sport spits out the quitters. What a fall from grace. What damage is being done to his legacy. The stain, the stain."
