Luke will puke, but the NRL cannot allow him to play in the grand final

2 days ago

Let’s put on our serious faces and get real. If Issac Luke takes the field in this Sunday’s grand final, it will be the farcical peak of the NRL’s maligned corrective system.

Grand final week is often described by overexcited footballers as akin to a Seinfeld marathon, a bucks session or time at home alone while the missus is away.

Stuff the top four, an outside intruder can win this year's premiership

13 Sep 2014

Forget about last night’s lopsided fizzer – this year’s NRL finals series still promises to be one bold and fruity drop that will maintain its acidic properties right up until closing time, and I’ll be swilling it like a red-nosed toff until my kidneys cry.
