so now we know why aussies have dominated the international scene for the last couple of decades they are all full of enhancing drugs. two aussi clubs are being investigated due to to their involvement with a dodgy sports scientist. back home holty tells our lads to keep off the chips and eat a healthy lasagne from aldi or tesco but it doesn't seem to make them run faster........ :D

Do we know whether any of the cheats are rugby league players and clubs. If so could make a big difference to World Cup 2013.

Manly have been quoted many a time. Also Cronulla were shown on sky sports news. Even if a dozen top drawer Aussies players get pulled they still won't be weak. For example.

Full backs: Slater, Barba, Stewart, Duggan, Inglis

Wingers: B Morris, Uate, Boyd, Yow Yeh,

Centres: Lyon, Jennings, Inglis, Hodges, J Morris, Tonga

Half backs: Thurston, Cronk, Reynolds, Cherry Evans, Carney, Pearce

Hookers: Smith, Farah, Ennis, Ballin,

Props: Scott, Tamaou, Hannant, Shillington,

Second Rowers: Tony Williams, Luke Lewis, Greg Bird, Dave Taylor

Loose Forward: Paul Gallen, Ashley Harrison (they usually just stick a second rower there so its irrelevant really)

Australias third team isn't far off as strong as their first so it won't make much difference. The players which would make a difference if they got pulled would be Thurston Cronk and Smith. But I'd be surprised if they get pulled due to they don't really rely overly on size and strength. Although Smith does seem to have a lot of stamina mind.

If Cronulla were found to be involved then they should ask for their money back as it doesn't seem to have helped them much in recent years.

Does anyone know of any sport that hasn't signed up to drug testing by the way.

Horsey, horsey don't you stop
Or you'll end up in a Tesco shop
Tail goes swish and the wheels go round
There you are you're a quarter pound(er).

I remember when .............................

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.
