Trent Barrett knew the ax could fall if the Canterbury Bulldogs lose to Newcastle Knights



Barrett must also take his share of the blame for the gloomy start to the club’s season. His set was desperate, his coaching staff was too advanced for the team and he hasn’t changed. It was his biggest fault as a coach; inability to listen and learn from past mistakes. This stubborn approach led to the fact that he lost faith in the powerful brokers in Manly when he was coaching and it came back to bite him into the Bulldogs.

Lachie charm

It’s not that bad news to be a sports commentator. Here is one of the reasons why this work is interesting and useful: to tell a story Lachlan Millerthe Sharks rugby seven olympic player, who debuts Sunday in the top class.

During the Olympics in Tokyo, where Miller represented his country, he received a letter from another Lachlan, schoolboy Lachlan Hobbes. His class wrote letters to the Olympians as part of a school project. Young Lachlan went through the entire list of Olympic teams. He focused on rugby sevens because he loves his feet. He went through the team of seven, found Miller and chose him because they have the same name. So he sent him a letter and watched every seven at the Games.


A few weeks after the Olympics he received a parcel at his school. Miller also wrote him a nice note: “The letter you wrote meant so much to me and really helped me while I was in Tokyo. Thank you very much for your kind words and support after returning from the Olympics. I made a career in the NRL and signed with the Cronulla Sharks. Hopefully we can become your second favorite team (behind the roosters) and we will be able to attract you to the game. Your letter meant so much to me. I had to do something in return. So as a token of my gratitude, please enjoy this sighing Australian seven. ”

Jersey is one of Lachlan’s valuables. Ever since he revealed he signed a contract with the Sharks, every week Lachlan has waited until the team’s roster comes out, hoping Miller gets a top score. To say that young Hobbes was thrilled with his choice this week is to say nothing.

Leaders unite

Roosters coaches were spotted at the Pilgrims Café in Bronte for a week Trent Robinson and Australian cricket captain Pat Cummins. They could not discuss football as the Cummins’ Panthers played Rob’s Roosters on Saturday night. Robinson is a great leader and would be a great soundboard for the Cummins. The couple lives next door to each other.

The double act provides

A trip on the M1 to Newcastle for the legend of Channel Nine Ken Sutcliffe and his partner Peter Overton Last weekend brought in a $ 100,000 surplus for RUN DIPG, a charity for patients and families affected by the deadliest form of childhood cancer, brainstem cancer, diffuse internal glioma of the bridge. One of Sutcliffe’s comrades lost his granddaughter Josie due to illness, so he and Pete took a double action, telling stories about Carrie PackerThe Wide World of Sports and the Decade of Pete s 60 minutes.

Manner Vaughn

If it was almost any other player in the NRL other than a serial criminal Paul Vaughn The media may have let him sled. Believe me, for more than three decades the coverage of the game has been worse for me. Even in Belmore. For example, when the players were happy to pour a bucket of ice water on me from the window.

Or when the coach I reportedly was about to fire fell on my shoulder as I climbed the stairs at Parramata Stadium. He was fired the following week.


Or a drug dealer with links to players who spat in my face and swung at me because I exposed him. Eventually I sued him. The list goes on. It’s not always an easy or fun job.

He considers the media “the worst people”. He expressed his anger at the Fox Sports cameraman who was filming near Belmore on Monday after that Trent BarrettDeparture from the Bulldogs. “Should you?” he said. “You have to? You’re the worst people, aren’t you? ” He then got into his car with the window down and uttered the same line to me and Fatima Kdouh from News Corp.

Vaughn is angry at me because I first found out he broke COVID-19 NRL rules in 2020 by going to his local cafe without using his name to log in and sitting in a coffee shop until all his comrades were stuck inside, not doing what they wanted to do. I also revealed that he violated state government laws by arranging a barbecue for his teammates at his home when his neighborhood was considered a hot spot.

After that, the Dragons did not win a single match. The club told him and his teammates that they should not hold such a meeting. It was the act of a man who does not believe that the rules apply to him. It cost him hundreds of thousands of dollars, and he was lucky that the Bulldogs were in despair and threw him a lifebuoy of $ 400,000.

He requested this and more from Canterbury and other clubs, but was of little interest.
Any NRL club that signs it will get a solid player who has seen their best days, but they won’t get a solid citizen. And for some, thankfully, it’s still important.

Fears of integrity

The outflow of key employees from the NRL continues, and, alarmingly, it is destroying the integrity unit.
The last departure will be at the end of the season when the general counsel Joe Collins, who heads the integrity unit, is leaving. Collins has worked for the NRL for most of the decade, but has rarely been seen or heard in public. Collins is known as a hard-working, meticulous operator who doesn’t think to invest an 18-hour workday during serious investigations.

He and Karin Murphy – the chief investigator, who also announced her resignation from the NRL – formed a formidable team. They ruthlessly pursued wage violations by Parramat, Manley, and Kronula.
No matter how you look at it, the unit of integrity that so well served the game is now in rags. This will require a set of quality replacements to protect the game in the future.
