  1. On the Storm front: Bellyache has suggested that he hasn't yet finally decided who'll get the 1 and 6 jerseys for the season opener at Belmore. He's tried a few out in trial games. Says he'll talk to his coaches and chat with the 'leaders' before making his choice.
  2. So, apparently to help beat gambling by players, e.g. Of recent Tim Simona, the rules on the team list issued on Tuesdays have been tightened up. Clubs must now announce a list of 21 players. 1 to 17 plus 4 more. They can then only use players from that list in the match. Quote: The 21-man squad will consist of 17 players named in position, as well as up to four interchange reserves. Coaches will be permitted to cut their squad back to 19 players 24-hours prior to kick-off, with the final 17-man squad announced one hour before kick-off. In any other cases where clubs wanted to include a player at late notice they would have to apply to the NRL for a special exemption and outline their case. This may include bringing in a player from outside the squad if someone in a specialist position such as halfback was injured at training and there was no logical replacement among the reserves. The NRL hopes the changes will limit the common practice of coaches naming ‘bogus’ teams, including the deliberate ploy of not naming a star player ahead of their comeback from injury or so too, the debut of a rising star. But overwhelmingly, the NRL’s motivation to limit the opportunity for people both in and outside the game profiting from inside information, is the cause for change.
  3. That's it, all 20 places are taken in our 2017 NRL Supercoach League. Welcome Adam, and good luck all. Now comes the challenge: picking that team to enter Round 1 with. I've got a team that might be nearly there, but still have two places to fill, plus there's bound to be some swapping once we get to TLT
  4. Some wags are already suggesting he'll be on his way to SL shortly...
  5. Well the NRL given notice that they intend to cancel his registration, alleging that he's been betting on matches He can appeal. What a shame that such a good player as him has gone down like this.
