"Serious sport has nothing to do with fair play. It is bound up with hatred, jealousy, boastfulness, disregard of all rules and sadistic pleasure in witnessing violence: in other words, it is war minus the shooting." - George Orwell

As mentioned in my other piece discussing the weekend’s results, the second week of the NRL finals series struggled to maintain the quality of play that was on show during the opening week of September football.
After a scintillating opening round of the NRL finals series, it was always likely that week two would see us witness a ‘regression to the mean’ when it came to the standard of football on display.
In keeping with my standard ‘five’ theme these days, I thought it would be a good idea to analyse which quintet of individuals are the smartest players in the NRL.
What an opening round of finals footy! Four breathtaking games – three that went right down to the wire – in what was a fantastic advertisement for the game of rugby league.
As we head into the first week of the NRL finals, and with much to discuss, there seemed no better time to dust off the old five questions format – which everyone seems to use these days – and start talking about the most exciting time of the year for rugby league.
The NRL regular season is going right down to the wire, with plenty to play for in the final round of the season. At least, that’s what we’re led to believe.
