Topics I've Started

Wayne Bennett back to the Broncos

21 July 2014 - 07:25 AM

Wayne Bennett has signed up with the Brisbane Broncos for the next three years.

Apparently getting four million dollars for the deal, not bad if you can get it.

 

I am not a big fan of Mr Bennett or the Broncos, it will be interesting to see if can get them back on top.


Marwan Koukash: I'll turn rugby league into a global sport

20 July 2014 - 05:13 AM

Marwan Koukash is prepared to shift to Australia to realise his dream of owning an NRL club, claiming he can help transform rugby league into a truly international game.

Koukash owns the Salford Red Devils, saving them from financial ruin, and is keen to add an Australian club to his portfolio. The British billionaire has been linked to Newcastle but refused to confirm which NRL clubs he is negotiating with.

The man whose net worth is estimated at $3 billion revealed he is in negotiations to stage a nines tournament, featuring NRL and Super League clubs, in Dubai. However, his priority is to take a stake of an Australian franchise, preferably as a sole owner.

"There are plenty of advantages in being involved on both sides of the world. It would help to globalise the sport," Koukash said from Dubai.

 

"My family absolutely adore being in Australia. We did start talking about the possibility of moving over to Australia," he said.

Pretty good game so far.

Very defensive but it looks like it may open up in the second half.

I hope Reynolds gets a few firm hits, he is a solid player but a piece of ######, I cant stand players like him.


Todd Carney has been sacked.

29 June 2014 - 06:59 AM

Todd Carney has been sacked from his $650K contract with Cronulla  today.

A Lewd photo has been circulating of him "bubbling"

I must be getting old, never heard of this rubbish in  my day.  

 

Where Is Marwan now.

 


State of Origin 1 (some spoilers)

28 May 2014 - 11:11 AM

Panning out as a quality game so far.
