I hope you all have a great Christmas! I wish it was more often than once a year.
Hopefully I get to see Santa this year. If not I'll settle for seeing Jesus and Mary and the ghost and the long eared donkey and the talking walnut.
Who would you pick for the end of year game between Australia and New Zealand? Noted that more injuries, end of year surgeries and suspensions may pop up.
We all love being couch coaches (except maybe John D and his offspring who aspire to be actual NRL coaches). However I'm curious to know what are some things that other couch coaches say that you shake your head at?
A few I've noticed include:
1. Dallas Johnson should not touch the...
Eric the Eel is set to go to the Olympics again. This time as a coach. What a legend!
3 points for the player voted best by Stampede members each game, 2 for 2nd best and 1 for 3rd best.

What sort of role at halfback or 5/8 does everyone think suits Thurston?
a) Organiser who plays to a strict plan (e.g. Ben Hornby)
b) Play it as you see it (e.g. Benji Marshall)
c) Ball runner (e.g. Braith Anasta)
d) Defensive rock (e.g. Travis Burns)
What are everyone's thoughts about the grand final?
I think Manly will win but I'll be on the Warriors bandwagon. Although if the Warriors win it means there will be one less club with the Cowboys on 0 premierships.
Anyone see how any of the former cowboys went last week at their new clubs?
I notice Moi Moi came into the Eels squad as a late change for Carl Webb. Webb hasn't been named this week. Looks like Kearney is a fast learner!
This suggests that Graham will be playing in round 1.
Perhaps Thommo and Jones will be battling it out for the 2nd halves spot. Hopefully Thommo will get the nod.
So the Australian squad trying to win our 4th successive world cup has been named:
Shane Watson, Brad Haddin (wk), Ricky Ponting (capt), Michael Clarke, Michael Hussey, David Hussey, Cameron White, Tim Paine (wk), Steven Smith, John Hastings, Mitchell Johnson, Nathan Hauritz, Brett Lee, Shaun...
What are the top 5 things you want to see happen with the cowboys (not other clubs or rep teams) in 2011?
1. Return to finals football. Making week 2, 3 or 4 of the finals would just be a bonus.
2. Build a formidable record at Dairy Farmers. Preferably win at least 75% of home games.
