Team naming and tips
What are peoples thoughts on teams naming their full squad before a game? I believe teams should be forced to name their full squad 24-48 hours BEFORE a game and they have to stick with it. I think it's a bit unfair when you put your bets on or you are in a tipping comp, and a club like the titans turn around just before kick off and says "oh by the way, aiden seizer isn't playing". I believe some clubs do it on purpose, it could even go so far as to be used for match fixing.View all 65 comments
Brian Smith was an expert at it. I am sure it was what made the NRL introduce the 1 hour before kickoff rule. I remember a game when he was the parra coach he made like 9 changes or something lol
The teams that play on Monday haven't even had time to assess their injuries. While it is the club's prerogative to name the team as they want to, it is annoying naming players they know are no chance of playing.
I guess its to give them a chance to prove their fitness.
Yeah, absolutely no problem if they are even 1% chance
I recall the 1 hour before kickoff rule coming in over an incident which involved Hindmarsh. My memory is a bit vague on the incident but it might have been against the Dragons and Hindy was under some sort of injury cloud and wasn't named as playing but when the teams ran out he was in the side.
I am sure it was in before that. I thought it was in as far back as 2003 or so.
Remember the good old days when some random would run out wearing jumper no.42 having just played reserve grade?
Mark Gasnier made his first grade debut after playing lower grades. (I think that was the case)
Yep, he sure did.
xxvicelifexx are you a dragons fan?
No, Sea Eagles. Viva '96! ;)
Could be in for a big win this weekend unfortunately vice
the poor sharkies don't have best record at Brookvale
Yeah. Manly first to 10 points should be a moral, even if it isn't paying much.
Do you ever punt on your own team tho? Even if I did punt could not do it on dragons fixtures as I always want us to win no matter how realistic is was lol
Sharks are 6 from 37 at Brookie!
Sometimes I do Marcus, but I generally have a bloke who's tips I follow. So if he tips against Manly, so be it.
Sigh. Back to punting discussion. outta here guys.
talk about souths that will get chooky interested lol
Ok....Gee I can't wait to bet on Souths this week!
Chooks by plenty!
maybe we should shart a seperate betting/tipping thread?
he hates souths he wants a excuse to bag em lol He is a roosters fan ;)
