    Well yeah I can. Tackled Olsen Filipaina and ended up with a concussion. Tackled him well, down around the knees from behind, but he's such a big fkcuk all I did was stop his run and he ended up sitting on my head. 130 kg's dumped down on my head.

    ^^In a word, nothanks!. Is there a better sight in NRL than a fully fit GI with the ball under his wing in broken play, and he spots a gap or small defender on his own?. I think of all the NRL players, the one you'd least like to have the job of tackling while he's heading straight at you at full-noise would be Jason Taumalolo. Its easy to think the guys tasked with keeping him quiet wouldn't sleep well for the week before game day...

    Kangaroo strikes back against hunters' car, breaks man's jaw

    A man whose jaw was shattered in a collision with a kangaroo in Western Australia's wheatbelt suggests there is malicious intent in his recent interactions with them.
    Joshua Hayden was hunting with his brother in a paddock near Kellerberrin on Tuesday night when the pair spotted three kangaroos.


    The 19-year-old said one of the kangaroos disappeared and as he stuck his body out of the window to have a shot at the other two the hidden menace launched itself at the moving car.
    "It actually collided with the side of the car and smashed the front window," he said.
    "Then it bounced back onto me and headbutted me straight in the jaw."


    Mr Hayden said he was unconscious for about 30 seconds before he came around.


    "I woke up and my brother was trying to tell me what happened," he said.


    His brother took him to Kellerberrin Memorial Hospital where he was told to go straight to the Northam Emergency Department.


    From there he was referred to Royal Perth Hospital where he was told he would have to wait ten days to have surgery because his face was too swollen to operate.


    Mr Hayden and his brother regularly hunt kangaroos for food but said normally they do not fight back.
    "Out of all the times we have been out bush I have never heard of this before," he said.


    The incident has shades of similarity with a collision in 2015 where a cyclist captured on video the moment she was knocked to the ground by a kangaroo while riding in Canberra.


    Bronwyn Calver suffered abrasions when she fell and received treatment from intensive care paramedics at the scene but escaped serious injury.


    On that occasion there was no suggestion of deliberate malice on behalf of the animal.

    That's not a Storm cloud ... this is a Storm cloud!


    A low-slung storm front approaches Cable Beach in Broome on Thursday.

    Broome has had the first taste of the storm system expected to develop into the strongest cyclone of the season, with a blue alert issued
    for a tropical storm which has already caused widespread flooding.


    The system is forecast to develop into Tropical Cyclone Kelvin, bringing wind gusts of up to 165 kilometres per hour and isolated rainfall of up to 500 millimetres.
    The blue alert applies to people between Cape Leveque and De Grey in the Kimberley and Pilbara, including the tourist town of Broome, with a
    severe tropical cyclone likely to develop later today or tomorrow.

    People in the district are being warned to prepare their properties and take shelter.



    A tropical low which has been moving parallel to the coast was expected to take a southerly track on Saturday, then intensify and make landfall
    on Sunday.
    If a cyclone does form, it will be known as Tropical Cyclone Kelvin and is set to be the strongest of the 2017-18 cyclone season, potentially
    reaching category three.
    Perspective is everything ... it's the difference between going through an ordeal or going through an adventure..
