Has Pantherus been hacked? I suspect the GRU. Wink

I have talked to @Pantherus and can confirm that he banned chewy because chewy asked to be banned. I don't know why, and I'm not going to delve into it.

The ban has been re-instated. @chewy whenever you want to come back just ask any of the admins and you'll be back straight away.

Hey guys - yeah Chewy asked to be banned. I argued that he could just deactivate his account or, you know, just not log in, but he was insistent.

Didn't think anything of it once it was done as it didn't occur to me that others would follow up on it Smile My bad on that front.

We will see what comes of it.. @Sambo10 and @Brentton are also up from div II. Good luck to all of us!
Thanks you! Honestly I never thought I'd get anywhere near Div 2 let alone Div 1. In season 27 I was still in Div 4 despite starting 15 seasons prior Laughing

As suspected I'm well behind the 8 ball of whats required to retain a position in Div 1. Time for some new personnel I reckon Cool

Got to say I'm very impressed with how your lot play Donkey, well above what you'd expect given there CSR.

Thank you! Your result away against Sparker wasn't too bad either, considering the difference in CSR and the HGA. And you have an important game against WuhC this weekend. Good luck!

Looking forward to see how everyone does.

You were so unlucky Sambo - literally one metre away from scoring at the end from that linebreak. Then at the ruck your Number Eight gave away a stupid penalty and WuhC kicked it out to win the game.

Yeah she was tough loss to swallow sparky! I might have to rethink the discipline in my forwards as 25 penalties is far from ideal haha

I just checked out your lineup. 4 of your pack were reckless and there are 3 rebellious and 1 reckless in the backline. Naturally the game losing penalty came from a reckless forward. But I suppose I can't be too hard on them because they got you promoted to Div 1, and they did win the turnover battle 14-1 but the 25-5 penalty stat is a shocker.

Yeah I mean it’s always hard to say how much reckless players hurt your team. Obviously you have the disadvantage of the low turnover to penalty ratio, but I’ve always wondered whether low discipline players cause more opposition penalties as well as upping your pressure on attack and lowering the openents. Alas it is time for a change however, as not worth the risk against the much higher tech forwards in div 1.

@donekysaint, unfortunately for you my newly imported open side is healthy the day before the game....... really wish I didn’t have such a key game the following week, was pretty keen to go all guns blazing against you Wink

@sambo10 some NT teams bank on reckless/rebellious players by defaulting to BTB. And they are getting consistently good results by doing it.

That is sooo boring. It's much more fun to default to aggressive, and tie in turnovers while still winning the penalty count. Smile

Welcome back Bren!

He has a new signature already too. Makes me think I should have one although if I've gone 2 years without one another 2 years won't hurt Laughing Would be a good place to display all my trophy swag though Razz

Your original club name was Antelope Mine Demons. Sounds sinister although I wasn't aware that antelopes could be mined.
