  1. Branded a lazy player by some, take a look at the new Dave Taylor. He needs to prove himself all over again. Now he's with Canberra he seems to be bustin' a gut to shape up for the new season ahead.
  2. Korbin Sims released from final year of his contract by Newcastle to sign for Broncos. Daily Telegraph Australia:
  3. Apparently Cowboys want to sign Charlie Gubb from Warriors despite the fact he has another year of it in New Zealand. It's said that he want to get away from Warriors to have more game time. According to reports, Warriors will let him go if they can find a suitable replacement in time for the new season.
  4. Kyle Lovett has been charged with possession of a small amount of drugs and is due to appear in court on the 1st February. Wests Tigers having just been told of this have informed the NRL Integrity Unit. West Tigers:
  5. Todd Carney - that's a move to Salford assuming they can get a visa for him. He did get access to the country via the French club and didn't get into trouble and he has a better behaviour record recently. As for Bradford and Toovey, well the new owners will need deep pockets, a clever plan and probably some luck to maintain a full time squad in our league, given a decimated squad. Good luck to Geoff. He'll need it.
  6. Geoff Toovey has been appointed Bradford Bulls new coach. By Matthew Shaw
  7. Ben Hunt has apparently agreed a big money deal to sign long term for St George Illawarra. Apparently he's getting a six year deal from next season. The Dragons upped their offer a few days ago. I reckon this could make him one of the best paid players in the game. What do you think of this Dragon's fans?
  8. On the subject of Newcastle Knights: Pauli Pauli has been involved in a multi-car crash and has a dislocated hip. First NRL round March 3rd. Will he make it? Doubtful surely??? His injury comes just a few days after Jarrod Mullen was provisionally suspended for testing positive for an anabolic steroid.
  9. So Ben Barba will be able to train with Sharks before the end of his 12 match ban for cocaine use. Remember Sharks ended his contract after this second illicit drugs strike. Sharks still want him. The details of his new contract have still to be worked out and accepted by the NRL. He won't be able to count the Auckland 9's, All Stars and World Club Challenge games. Rightly so IMO he will have to miss the first 12 NRL games. Hey up, Sharks have a bye in Round 13 so the first game he could play will be the R14 match vs Storm. His torn up contract was worth $600,000 a season What do you reckon then... Sharks having to pay him about $300,000 for the 2017 season?
  10. Jackson Hastings has has a hospital stay for an ankle operation. As a result he'll miss the Auckland 9s
  11. Wests Tigers have re-signed young forward Josh Aloiai for two more seasons.
  12. I found a basic membership for Sharks called General Admission 2017 Member pack including your choice of a cap, beanie or scarf as your main pack item Access to all 12 home games at Southern Cross Group Stadium Merchandise voucher (Adult – $30, Concession – $15, Junior – $10) Additional Member benefits **************************** Cost: $189 (which is is currently about £155) 2017 Member pack including your choice of a cap, beanie or scarf as your main pack item Access to all 12 home games at Southern Cross Group Stadium Merchandise voucher (Adult – $30, Concession – $15, Junior – $10) Additional Member benefits
  13. Don't know about FS Snr as a caretaker. I think you are right there Steve about the Cup match.The Smith listed below surely must have been him. The dates fit. Here's the teams: There's Pathe news coverage of the 1935 Cup Final at Wembley in front of 40,000 spectators on the internet.
  14. One to watch out for: Whoever scores the first try for Broncos in Round 1 this season will have scored the club's 3,000th try
