PP, the sharks have a few interesting characters plus a few reformed ones too. If Gallen can inspire his team mates, they will give the competition a huge shake.

Any team that contains Duggan, Johnson, Fifita, Woods, Moylan, Morris,  Graham etc will be hard to beat along with some of the younger talent that is developing.

On the Napa front, NRL will act due to the offseason from hell with the number of players charged over alleged assaults and / or sexual assault etc. I fear he may end up paying a higher penalty as a result.

Hayne case is the worst alleged assault of the lot but technically he is uncontracted. Thus he is out of reach for the Nrl to send a message and for many including the non sports lovers, he is still seen as a Nrl player though. Any penalty is moot because if he is found guilty, he might serve some custodial sentence. However he is still facing court so presumption of innocence is still there.

There's no consistency from the NRL PP and it all leads back to Greenberg.

Corey Norman got 8 weeks for being caught with a pill yet the Kiwi players are on film snorting a line in Canberra and get hit with a feather of two.

You only have to see the mud the Eels were dragged through over the salary cap yet Manly spent the whole of last year playing with similar offenses hanging over them but it's amounted to a fine, it was major headlines for the Eels.

Greenberg isn't a leader but purely reactionary to the headlines, he's a myth & needs to go.

I know your OP says $15 for The Sharks but I see $18 on offer.

I like to have 2 or 3 early bets on sides at those sort of odds and see if I can arb myself into an unbeatable position come GF day and Sharks look a little bit of overs to me.

My opinion of Fifita is that he is the best prop to have played the game since Artie Beetson.

Artie was a bit off the rails in the early days as well until Jack Gibson got him to settle.  Wondering if John Morris can do the same for Fifita.

Greg Bird. Another one. Got away with glassing his partner and snorting Coke as well as pissing on a policeman's wheel   :biggrin:

Mitch Pearce was drunk as a skunk and was filmed from someone in a closet who got paid $250,000 by Channel 9 so they could advertise that night's ACA as having a first grade Rugby League player having sex with a dog (we all know now this was untrue).

I'm still shocked over it  :o

Interesting that two people suspended for salary cap rorting at two different clubs are united now at the Roosters.

https://www.canberratimes.com.au/sport/nrl/anderson-to-join-roosters-after-doing-time-in-purgatory-for-cap-rort-20190129-p50ud7.html

Far from being judgmental and a cleanskin but I thought salary cap rorters were banned from entering the competition again. It is not a great deterrent if people can do this at one club and walk back into a job 12 months later at another club. Unfortunately the original club could be still be suffering penalties from this.

Regardless of clubs or people involved, it should be a mandatory 3-5 years suspension from the game if NRL were serious about salary cap rorts. Manly will be still paying the penalties for years to come from not be able to recruit properly and their fans will suffer.

Compare current scenario to the Wests Tiger CEO who got in trouble with the ambassador position where a CEO got deregistered. Farah is yet to be paid or accept the role too but that maybe a moot point.

Cowgirls are a nice price. I got 15s
Maguire and Barba will make a big impact and Morgan will make the team his own
Mosby and Martin to step up as well. If the coach is smart Taumalolo will have his best year yet

/quote]

Has already made a big impact apparently . .  :whistle:

Dunno what's happened . . Local news channel had Lozza telling us what a great bloke Benny was . . "training the house down with the Cowboys" I think were his words

Half an hour later ABC news has Benny sacked for breach of contract over integrity issues



I think the Cowboys had him on a 12 month contract . . in case . . they were bad judges  :confused1:

Saw him one night in the Bistro at Cronulla RSL with a couple of mates. Was obviously "inebriated" (I was going to say drunk but that may be inaccurate given subsequent events) and was carrying on like a first class pork chop.

Some footballers just do not get it  :no:

Could have been anything.

I agree PP. I recall below incident when there were allegations previously. However the dogs were cleared of any wrong doing.

I am not sure if below is a genius idea to distract from all the off season scandals or plain stupid.
