  1. So we know now where Ben Barba is going. His playing destination is St Helens in Super League. Saints want 'clarification' as to whether he must serve the twelve game ban he earned himself in NRL. Well of course he must. Anything else would be wrong, sending out the wrong message about our game, international unity and agreement. It would also demean the game in our country. Ben Barba should serve his full ban. A ban in NRL should be a ban in SL and vice versa.
  2. Dane Gagai has told Newcastle Knights officials he will depart the club at season's end. Gagai joined the Knights in 2012 and has played 116 of his 122 NRL matches for Newcastle. Gagai informed his teammates before joining the Queensland Maroons side in camp on Monday. "We are obviously disappointed that Dane has decided to leave the Club, but we respect the decision he has made with his family," CEO Matt Gidley said. "Dane has been a wonderful player and ambassador for our club over the six years he has been with us. "He will leave at season's end with our best wishes for the future." "We know Dane will give 100 per cent for the team before he departs us at the end of the year."
  3. Hi SS13 Don't quite now how I managed it, but somehow I've got 16 players for the round. I'd have had 17 if Milford hadn't been called up for Origin! I didn't think I'd get anywhere near that number. After R9, R10, 11 and this week I've just moved towards the bye round but wouldn't have traded anyone just to make up the numbers. It's the little used and non-playing bench players who've made money for me that I've used to trade this week. I had more money that usual to invest this round, but not as much as you I'm guessing. That is where I've tried to be more active this season - generating money by buying players who increase in value.
  4. Billy Slater out of Origin 1 2017 Is that the end of his QLD Rep days? Not everyone happy in the camp? Conspiracy theorists see Darren Lockyer behind this. Kevin Walters thought not to have had the final say. The Smith, Cronk, Slater weapon is incomplete.
  5. Match Officials Origin 1 Matt Cecchin and Gerard Sutton will referee the 2017 Holden State of Origin I at Suncorp Stadium next Wednesday, May 31. Brett Suttor and Chris Butler will be touch judges for the match, while Bernard Sutton (Senior Review Official) and Ben Galea (Review Official) will officiate from the NRL Bunker.
  6. Hayne has scored some of the best tries ever in the game. But that was then... ... and this is now. I expect he will improve as he beds back into the game.
  7. I see Kodi Nik has been demoted to the bench this week to let Benji Marshall back into the team alongside Ben Hunt
  8. Would you have picked Jarryd Hayne? He's not there on merit this season surely? He's not got the form or pace he used to have, you know the trademark bulldozing and darting runs. He's had limited play time this season through injury. Yet I bet he was one of the first names pencilled in.
  9. Irish Saint, with reference to you choosing Warriors... I've told you once and I told you twice...
  10. Not an easy week. Even those who planned ahead might struggle. Last couple of weeks in particular I've been shaping up for this bye round but without a clear picture of how many I'd get on the park. With this week's trades and some money in the pot, I've managed to get a decent number playing. The aim was to try not to weaken the squad and hopefully make some more money on the incomers..
  11. Very harsh on the Warriors fans whose team must be difficult to follow. They should be retained though. Their presence in the NRL does more for the game than just add a team. They have a good fan base, folk who deserve respect. They have more members (15,000+) than Roosters, Cronulla, Newcastle, Manly and Gold Coast.

  13. Remember FD, I told you once and I told you twice, but ya never listen to my advice.
