The Tip Sheet – 2022 Ep 37: Nathan Brown News, Previewing The Roosters

The Tip Sheet is also available on Spotify and iTunes!

The Preview Podcast gets waylaid by a significant development for the Parramatta Eels as Nathan Brown is dropped to the NSW Cup and his future at the club put under question. Sixties and Forty20 break down what it all means for both the player and the team.

The Daily Telegraph has tipped the Eels to be picking up young Newcastle forward Jirah Momoisea for the next two years and his recruitment profile is right in the sweet spot for where the Blue & Gold have done some of their best work in recent years.

Finally the boys get to the previews where they look at all three grades taking on the Roosters (or the Bears in the case of the NSW Cup) with revenge on the menu across the board. The Flegg are looking to topple the ladder leaders while the Cup lock horns with another competition heavyweight.

For the NRL it is all about trusting the team structures and bringing the right attitude to the contest. Sixties points out that recent history suggests it will be a high scoring affair and the boys tip accordingly.

As usual a well presented podcast, the big question remains how the club covers the loss of so many NRL level players at the end of this season. Mark ONeil should be judged how effective the recruitment is, we should be a t a level that competes for signings with the Roosters etc. The hierarchy whist stating we are a development club have also put it out there that we are a club where players want to come to That’s the test now, can the HOF deliver replacements that continue the competitive nature of the side, if we are to… Read more »

As usual an idiot reply from you, how many different names do you post under. Like most I want the club to act as big as we are, nothing more. Keep your personal sh*t to yourself.

Hey boys
not sure if anyone can tell me or not but was Oregon kaufusi any good at ball playing,did he ever offload as he was coming through the ranks.It seems we have nursed him through to first grade and he still seems like a bog average up and down straight running forward. What did he show in the juniors to make him the one to persist with? It will be the perfect measuring stick for Brad Arther to see what kind of player he is under a different coach.


its taken over 3 seasons to get him to this level and reduce his mistake rate , hes a bench player at best so now cronulla is going to pay more than twice we do and he will still be a benchy , no measuring stick there !


Luke, he’s playing first grade. He’s getting good coin to go to the Sharks. That’s indicative that he was better than 99.99% of players that lace on a boot as kids, and better than 95% or more that play junior reps. I couldn’t even put a percentage on those who become guns. If we have a player that shows he could be an NRL player, and he fulfils that whether he’s a star or a standard NRL/bench player, it’s still a solid achievement.

Hi 60s

There’s no doubt he’s a tough footballer but what were his strengths in the juniors that maybe we’re not seeing in first grade as there are plenty like him ?Hes been in first grade a fair while now so you could say he should be in full bloom. Was he always just a worker?
It will be interesting to watch him next year to see how a different coach uses him or if he starts ball playing or playing 80 mins with big numbers is I suppose what I’m trying to say.
