NRL’s proposed central command centre gets a big tick

NRL's proposed central command centre gets a big tick

6 days ago

Two announcements in the past few days prompt me to declare this Good News Week for rugby league. The first announcement should go down extremely well with frustrated league fans around the nation. NRL Head of Football Todd Greenberg says the ruling body will trial a ‘central command’ centre next season. Based on the successful […]

The latest ASADA move will end in a stalemate… again

The latest ASADA move will end in a stalemate... again

21 Aug 2014

This week’s development in ASADA’s probe into Cronulla for alleged drug-taking looks to be headed straight for the courts. I can’t see any players admitting guilt in order to escape the maximum penalty from the authorities.

Bye bye Ricky: the Raiders need success not sentiment

6 Aug 2014

OK, the gloves are off. Ricky Stuart you are fair game – come and fight if you can. Your Canberra team’s showing against the New Zealand Warriors on Sunday was Z-grade. Embarrassing, bordering on laughable for an NRL team. No heart in defence, hardly a clue in attack. You have been with these guys since […]

Beale and Folau in a league of their own

Beale and Folau in a league of their own

30 Jul 2014

By profession, I am a rugby league man, but I’ve bought a ticket to the Super Rugby grand final this weekend. I have done so for one – no, make that two – reasons. The first is that I am a dedicated NSW sports fan and our union team, the NSW Waratahs, has richly earned […]
