Robinson could have prolonged his stay in TGG for 2 months and played, but like that Farrell he took the filthy lucre from the Dark Side and ran. Judas.

Star signing represents quite a coup for Roosters and NRL:

Some usual ###### in that article though, mass exodus of two whole players to afl and those players you can't name going to union with barely a billion dollars to keep the nrl warm at night! Brink of collapse I tells ya
PROUD TO BE A MEMBER OF http://www.rugbyleaguecares.org/ and http://www.walesrugb...-wales-for-2013
Predictions for the future -
Crusaders RL to get a franchise for 2012 onwards -WRONG
Widnes Vikings also to get a franchise - RIGHT
Crusaders RL to do the double over Widnes and finish five places ahead of them -WRONG
Widnes Vikings NOT to dominate rugby league in years to come! STILL TO COME

I promise to pay �10 to the charity of Bomb Jacks choice if Widnes Millionaires finish above the battling underdogs Crusaders RL. I OWE A TENNER!

8 years ago or so I always remember a post on Planet Rugby about NZRU should poach some up and coming RL players called  SBW/Karmichael Hunt and Benji Marshell.

I think the sponsors ball was an alcohol promotion - SBW is a Muslim so I suppose it was a conscience call. Given that the cricketer was recently given permission to play without a sponsors logo on his one day strip I doubt it'll cause a stir.

In fact the players were probably not even consulted about it - just handed them before getting on the podium.

The trouble with Muslim values is their open to so many interpretations.

I really think it would be a bad decision to drop a named squad member for him. Even though he should be in the team, it would not be fair on whoever gets dropped

Like dropping Kevin Sinfield from the England squad for someone who's in form?

 I don't think we will see him playing rugby league again after next year has finished. It will be Union and Boxing for him.
