ROUND 22

THE BATTLE OF SYDNEY LIVE ON FRIDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL, PHIL GOULD AND BILLY SLATER JOIN THE FOOTY SHOW

Phil Gould joins The Footy Show tonight to discuss the feud brewing between the Tigers and Panthers over coach Ivan Cleary, and the Rabbitohs and Roosters meet in a showdown with big premiership implications in Round 22 of the NRL, LIVE on Nine.

Women in League round kicks off tonight from 7.30 on Thursday Night Football , with the Cowboys desperate to avoid the wooden spoon in Johnathan Thurston’s final season. They take on a shaky Broncos side who need a victory to lock up a spot in the top eight. Captain Darius Boyd returns to fullback and needs to be at his dazzling best to provide the spark his side needs, while retiring forward Sam Thaiday marks his milestone 300th appearance as a Bronco.

After the game, Panthers General Manager of Football, Phil Gould , joins The Footy Show in the studio to address the biggest NRL story of the year as the coaching dramas at Penrith deepen. The panel will also cross to the retiring Sam Thaiday and Johnathan Thurston following their clash in Townsville. In a special segment, host Erin Molan catches up with Billy and Nicole Slater following Billy’s retirement announcement to talk about life after footy, after which the panel will cross live to the champion fullback. NSW women’s captain, Maddie Studdon , will also be a guest to discuss the WNRL competition which begins during this year’s NRL finals series.

Friday Night Football from 7.30pm* features the game of the round between the Rabbitohs and their arch-rivals, the Roosters. The winners will be in a prime position to claim the minor premiership. In-form Souths hooker Damien Cook will be a crucial weapon in the contest, as will Roosters’ young gun Latrell Mitchell , who has scored six tries in his past three games.

In Saturday Night Football , the Dragons – smarting after going down to the Warriors last week – take on the Eels, another outfit hoping to restore some pride and avoid the wooden spoon. A Parramatta reshuffle moves Corey Norman to fullback. The Dragons will need their halves pairing of Ben Hunt and Gareth Widdop to fire if they want to stay in the top four.

On Sunday Football live at 3.00pm*, the sixth-placed Cronulla Sharks meet the premiers, the Melbourne Storm. Both sides are coming off stinging losses in Round 21, which will add extra fire to an always spicy contest. After announcing his retirement, the great Billy Slater lines up opposite Valentine Holmes , the super-slick Sharks fullback out to spoil the party.

This week, Gould gives an in-depth explanation of the Panthers-Tigers coaching saga.


#1291

if that happens, then Andrew Voss becomes Fox’s main caller. Julian Daw or Chris Warren joining Fox, perhaps?


#1292

Fox could also get David Morrow from 2GB.


#1293

The problem with that idea at the moment is that he has a seven day per week job at 2GB-MSR.


#1294

Nine has scheduled next Friday’s Melbourne Storm V Parramatta Eels on the main channel in Melbourne.


#1295

Though somewhat oddly in comparison, Sundays 4pm game between the Storm and Cronulla Sharks is on 9Gem.

#1298

Then what was the intention of that clusterfuck?

#1301

In tonight’s game, Nine stopped showing the game clock with five minutes to go.

They showed the tackle count in the place of that graphic instead, very reminiscent of Ten AFL’s five minutes warning.

The game then blew out and the clock was back by full time.

Wonder if they’ll continue to trial the tweak during the finals.


#1302

relax, it was because there time was not the same as the ground clock, nothing new


#1303

Yes, towards the end of the first half, Nine’s clock had already ticked over to half time when there was still about 20 seconds of play to follow.

ROUND 24

JOHNATHAN THURSTON FAREWELLS TOWNSVILLE

The Tigers take on the Sea Eagles, Johnathan Thurston bids farewell to Townsville, and the Roosters try to secure the minor premiership in Round 24 of the NRL, LIVE on Nine.

Tonight at 7.30pm* on Thursday Night Football , the Wests Tigers face the Sea Eagles, with the Tigers’ finals hopes hanging by a thread. They need a massive win over the shellshocked Sea Eagles who are embroiled in coaching turmoil. Daly Cherry-Evans and the whole Manly side must shake off their big loss to the Titans last week against the points-hungry Tigers led by attacking stars Benji Marshall and Luke Brooks .

After the game, The Footy Show panel of Erin Molan, Ryan Girdler and Darren Lockyer preview the weekend ahead. Dual premiership winner, member of the 300-game club and now celebrity personal trainer, Chris Heighington , will be in the studio to reflect on his career. Birthday boy and Bulldog matchwinner Lachlan Lewis , Wally “The King’s” nephew, chats to the panel, Hamish and Andy sit down with Freddy and Girds for another unbelievable True Story , and Beau Ryan hits the red carpet for his new film, Comets .

Friday Night Football from 7.30pm* will be an emotional affair as Cowboys great Johnathan Thurston bids farewell to Townsville, playing the Eels in the final home game of his illustrious career. The loser faces the unwanted prospect of getting the wooden spoon with one week still to go in the regular season. Prop Kane Evans returns to the Eels’ starting lineup, and they’ll need every bit of his power to halt the rampaging Jason Taumalolo .

In Saturday Night Football at 7.00pm* , the race for the minor premiership heats up as the Roosters take on the Broncos in a crucial clash at Allianz Stadium in Sydney. The Tricolours get a massive boost with five-eighth Luke Keary back from a knee injury, and prop Jared Waerea-Hargreaves may also be a late return from a rib injury. The resurgent Broncos stunned the Rabbitohs last week and winger Corey Oates shapes as a big danger after scoring a hat-trick against Souths.

On Sunday Football live at 3.00pm*, the Dragons will be out to solidify a top four spot against an improving Bulldogs side capable of another upset. The Dogs will be looking for bright spark Lachlan Lewis , the nephew of “King” Wally Lewis, to once again lead them to victory. The Dragons have shifted Tyson Frizell to prop, and he’ll have his hands full marking Bulldogs talisman David Klemmer .

#1305

I guess Matt Thompson will do the Townsville match.


#1306

No mention of Ray Warren for any of the 4 NRL games this weekend.

You’d think he would be calling any of the Thursday night, Saturday night or Sunday afternoon game since they are all in Sydney.
