The Tip Sheet – 2023 Ep 91: Intercontinental Conversations; Talking Eels, NRL & Vegas With Ron

The Tip Sheet is also available on Spotify and iTunes!

The Tip Sheet goes international in the offseason as Ron returns to chat all things rugby league with Sixties and Forty20.

The boys reflect on Parramatta’s frustrating 2023 season as well as how the competition tracked as a whole. Newcastle’s red hot run, the outrageous talent of Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow and the sheer dominance of the Panthers all feature in the branching chat.

Vegas is locked in for the NRL and Ron won’t be missing out on the opportunity.

The show dives into his big plans for the NRL’s much anticipated venture into the states before looking at what sort of splash the code could make.

From rumours of Tom Brady’s involvement to the timing of the games in the wake of the Super Bowl, the boys look at how it is all shaping up.

    Whilst I am deeply against the Las Vegas games, I am against teams not playing at their chosen home ground. I hope Ron has a fantastic time and that one day he’s able to experience an Eels game at Parramatta stadium, there’s nothing like it.

      I can definitely see where you are coming from Ham. I’m not a fan of the Darwin game, and eventually losing two home games in a season for promotional purposes isn’t ideal. Would the Eels consider not taking a game to Darwin in the year we nominate for Vegas? Probably not.
      Would I be disappointed? Yes.

    Probably not on topic but Mark StJohn Fox sport gave his rankings of best halves pairings.

    Season 2022 Eels pairing of MM and DB were ranked at No 1. Based on their efforts in 2023 they were down graded to number 4. No issue with that.

    What caught my attention was the Storm pairing being rated at No 2. I thought Munster had a very ordinary season by his standards and Hughes had a lot of injury. Further I always maintain that Hughes is more of a running five eight.

    Am I missing something?

    There is a story on Fox sport of Reynolds taking a haircut on his current $800,000 salary to go around again in 2025.

    As if this is not a little hard to believe we also read this. Mam is on $250,000. But the hardest to believe is that Walsh is only on $400,000.

    Broncos have been playing these games for a long time. Mam was talking about going to market a couple of weeks ago. The talk stopped dead.

    What do you think Mam would get on the open market?
