Flashback: PJ Marsh vs Trent Barrett 2005

During the Round 18 clash between the Eels and Dragons in 2005, PJ Marsh collided with Trent Barrett when attempting to charge down a kick. Barrett got up and punched Marsh in the back of the head sparking a brawl. Eels fullback Wade McKinnon returned the kick for a try while the brawl ensued. The Video Referee awarded the try. Did the referees get the decision right to award the try to McKinnon? What would The Bunker have done in this situation?

A QUESTION FOR ALL

Firstly I hope you are all safe and well and I wish you all a million blessings. I'm no expert by any stretch when it comes to infectious viruses but after reading about various countries and how they are dealing with this crisis I have a very simple question , Why aren't we all made to wear masks while out in public ? Surely if we made it mandatory to wear some form of breathing apparatus while out in public it would be better than wearing nothing at all ? . The experts say that many would…

How Will 2021 Look?

OK guys and gals, it's been widely reported that the 2021 season will be re-structured with a reduced salary cap. I've heard reports of a reduction anywhere from 10-20% or even more. So how does this look in 2021?  It raises a lot of questions:-Does this mean the NRL will have to effectively cancel every contract at the end of 2020 and clubs will re-negotiate them?I imagine you can't just reduce all existing contracts by the relevant % reduction of the cap, ie. if the cap drops 10% all…

Seriously Delusional

Just listening to Greenberg on Fox Sports, and the grub is dead set delusional. Claimed the AFL being put on a pedestal is not fair and that the NRL had the same amount of money in the bank as them. Hello, real world to Todd, you claimed you had a surplus of $30 million in the bank BUT you knew you owed the players retirement fund and others at least $21 million that wasn't paid for 3 years after you finally made some of the books available to see!!!! You own NOTHING, not a thing, not even your…

DON ROBINSON

I am having the same problem. Had it for some time Someone yesterday said that he had told me some time ago to check my cookies! The only person to mention cookies to me was Snake. AS I would not know a cookie from a pork chop I can offer no help to you. You indicate that the problem is with the site. I have a sneaking suspicion that you are right. I will first get on to Apple and sort out the cookie situation.

IF IT WASNT TRUE IT WOULD BE FUNNY

I post a bit on this site because I am a staunch Parra supporter. So I have taken a bit of a setback lately. On the 06/02/2020 I was driving and blacked out/ heart attack , veered off the road and hit a pole ,writing off my car , almost running over a off duty Paramedic walking down the footpath. The Paramedic pulls me out of the car and resuscitates me and here I am still standing.Being 62 I don't believe I am that old.Going back a ways I was 18 when I drowned and was pulled from the surf and…

Easter Lockdown looming despite declining new cases

Many wards in NSW hospitals are empty awaiting the coronavirus explosion. Staff are being stood down. Expect more severe restrictions over Easter when they can be more easily tolerated because people will have planned to be off work and school. Presumably this is to try and wipe out the remaining virus in Oz but unlikely to completely eradicate it. We will continue to have severe restrictions sending many broke and reducing our ability to cope with future emergencies for few cases in Australia.…

Does anyone know much about stamp duty?

The timing couldn't be worse. I've just reached settlement on my first property and did intend on making it an investment. I've paid stamp duty but due to corona everyone's spooked and I can't find someone to rent it. I'm thinking of I might as well just move in myself. Does this mean I get a refund on stamp duty as I would then meet the criteria for the first home buyers assistance scheme?

Eels in the News

Why the 2020 NRL premiership will be forever tainted

Throw in the hiccups since 2010 by the salary cap-busting Storm and Eels and it's ... Same goes for Parramatta – the only upside in a token title post-1986 will be the celebratory coat of gloss smeared across the statue of Ray Price.
