Trial Games Feb 12-20

For those that like a footy fix

NRL are streaming some of the trials over the next two weekends

And dont forget the junior games at Redfern are being live streamed by the NSWRL at 10am


Thanks @Siv that’s easier to read.


Went and had a look at the dragons/sharks trial, live up the road.

Some very willing defence in the match.

Saw Tom Amone there, his little brother goes ok too, played 5/8th for Stgill. Small though.

Liked Cronulla’s fullback, Luke Metcalfe looked pretty handy.

McInnes ACL out for the season

Yes. Watched some of the trial on Kayo. Metcalfe was a standout.

Wandered over for a look at the stgill/parra trial tonight, turned away at the gate, covid restrictions. Has anything significant happened today that might account for the restrictions?


Was it covid

Or not having a pre booked ticket

No one was allowed in, guy at the gate said it was due to covid, a parra staff member and other fans said they’d been told the same thing. Weird, we were allowed into Shark park last Friday night, all packed into the main stand on one side of the ground.

Trial: Full time has been called early. Parramatta Eels 28 defeat St George Illawarra 6

Noticed fix spirts dud a launch at WSS today

Yeah at Bankwest Stadium and there are a couple of Cookie articles on the forum.

Am I meant to read that in a Kiwi accent Siv ? :laughing:
