My son and I were travelling to our Table Tennis comp night in Kurnell last night when he heard someone had texted in to Mark Levy's Sports program on 2GB. He asked me how it works and I told him he could text something in himself if he wanted to. I helped him a bit but it was all his idea. And how chuffed was he when they read it out!! Why is it in this thread you ask? Listen to the recording and you'll understand.

Vids private Chad, can't view

Bugger. How do I fix that?
Not sure mate I don't really upload videos to youtube just Xtube
I'd assume there is a settings menu or something somewhere where you can change from private to public. Might have to give it a google

you cant, but you can just give us a rundown
Strange - it says there are no restrictions on the video.

Anyway, it wasn't anything brilliant to others I guess but it was the first time my son had a text read out over the radio, so he was pretty excited about the whole thing.

He just said he was 12 years old, was a big Sharks fan and his favourite player is Nicho Hynes. And he asked how Levy thought the Sharks would go for the rest of the year. Surprisingly Levy gave us a big wrap and said we were well in contention for the premiership!! I think he was trying to raise the spirits of a 12 year old, which was good of him. :)

Of all the sides from 2 to 11 I'd say we probably have the highest ceiling.
Storm have played really well but not sure they have another level or much greater consistency available to them. We have managed to be in 4th at this stage and barely look like we know how to play half the time. If we could get our **** together and have some injury luck we probably could shake things up. Might take a bit too long to get our **** together though...

I'll believe you but it does seem odd to me you can't change your own videos privacy settings

Do you listen to ABC Grandstand on the weekend? They have a 12 year old on each week called Christopher giving his tips, he's awesome. You should have a listen if you haven't already.

Chad's gone into his home video stash by mistake.
No he hasn't! :)

Yes, I have heard that young fellow. Big Broncos fan I think. He is very good that's for sure.

Blues camp becomes study camp as Hynes takes tips from Cleary
By Adrian Proszenko
July 1, 2022 — 12.48pm
To become the best, Nicho Hynes figures you need to learn from the best. Which is why the Cronulla halfback gravitated towards Nathan Cleary in Blues camp.

“Me and Nathan started to get along well towards the back end [of the camp in Perth],” Hynes said. “I like to learn a bit off him because he obviously plays the same position and is the best player in that position.”

Hynes has been one of the buys of the year, taking his game to the next level since shifting from Melbourne to Cronulla. The 26-year-old has already proven during his time in the Shire that he is a genuine halfback, but felt he could further elevate his game by benchmarking it against the NRL’s premier No.7.

Asked what he observed from his time with Cleary in camp, Hynes said: “Probably how he gets everything down pat, he does everything down to a T and is just so professional.

“He just wants to be the best and took that first loss pretty hard on himself. You look at his performance [in game two] and he absolutely killed it – one of the best performances you will ever see.

sional. You can see why he’s one of the best players of the game.”

For the past three State of Origin games, Hynes has been NSW’s 18th man. Being agonisingly close to a Blues berth has only provided the Indigenous All Stars representative with further motivation to break into the interstate arena.

“It’s really good to be a part of [camp],” said Hynes, who lent his support to the Beanies for Brain Cancer launch during the week.

“You surround yourself with great players and learn a hell of a lot. I’m so grateful to be a part of the squad for the past two camps. I’ve learnt heaps and will take that back to the Sharks.

“I learnt heaps about being professional and how they go about their day-to-day business. Watching the likes of Teddy [James Tedesco] and Nathan Cleary, especially being in my position; I pick up little traits of what they do. I definitely take it away, learn from that and try to implement those things into my game.”

centage for Cronulla is down to 63 per cent.

“I didn’t do it in camp, but I need to get a few tips off Nathan,” he conceded. “That needs to pick up a little bit.”

The Sharks have an opportunity to consolidate their spot in the top four when they take on Canterbury at Commbank Stadium on Saturday. Three of their players – Wade Graham, Dale Finucane and Cameron McInnes – tested positive for COVID during the bye weekend, but all are available for the clash with the Bulldogs.

“Fortunately it didn’t knock them around too hard and we managed to get a few training days into them as well,” Sharks coach Craig Fitzgibbon said.

The three players who had it hadn’t had it previously. It came at a fortunate time for us being rep round, and they weren’t involved in rep footy; they got a rest and still got to train.”

Bulldogs coach Mick Potter wasn’t as fortunate and will be required to isolate as his side attempts to record three consecutive wins. Having been twice sidelined himself with COVID this season, Fitzgibbon can empathise.

“It has its challenges,” he said. “I had to trust the staff and I knew the players were in good hands, so there were no concerns there.

“As a coach you prepare all week and then come game day you’re quite powerless to be honest. You set up how you want to play but once they take the field you realise there’s not a great deal you can do at that point. When you’re not there, that’s even less so.

“It’s uncomfortable for sure. I’m sure Mick is the same; that he trusts his staff and they will prepare. You don’t change how you play every week anyway. It’s about improving on your style and the way you want to play. They will know what they are doing.”
