Four players – three backs and one forward – will attract a hot and heavy spotlight in what shapes as a nail-biting Round 25 of the NRL competition.
I didn’t want to write this column, but Monday night’s debacle at Remondis sealed Cronulla’s fate. Yet again.

The Penns may well be mightier than the sword they brought down on Geoff Toovey’s head yesterday, but the knee-jerk reaction from the club’s faithful could be even more telling for the 68-year-old Manly-Warringah club.
These days, I am pretty selective about the NRL games I want to attend live and in person. I pay for the privilege, but Fox Sports do a damn good job keeping me at home in my comfy armchair.
