Well there's plenty of things you could be expecting to read here.
Last weekend though got me thinking about the way every NRL season turns up new young players who surprise and excite the fans with their
ability and athleticism having been off the radar until they got their chance.
That try of David Nofoaluma for Tigers, when he touched down with his whole body hanging almost vertically above the ball was the sort of thing that inspired this post.
You can go through virtually every NRL team and find a young gun or two who has not only got into the team but once there looks like a gifted young star with a maturity and confidence beyond their rookie status.
So whether you are a Bunnies aficionado (Tom and George Burgess), a Panthers follower (Matt Moylan) a Stormer (Ben Hampton), a Roosters supporter (Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, Daniel Tupou) or a Warriors watcher (Peter Hiku) ... (I could go on) ... you can watch exciting new talent unearthed that means that the loss of a big star through retirement or transfer to another sport is hardly noticed.
NRL fans might lose Izzy Folau or Benji but they always have a new generation of talented new players bursting into the game.
No wonder the NRL is so successful in delighting its fans and pleasing its sponsors.
