to be totally honest, it feels weird for these guys to possibly have their career ended over this when some other guys will get done for drink driving and play on, or domestic violence. but #TheWarOnDrugs

i'm no lawyer (6 weeks of law to be precise) but i cant imagine they'll get much of a punishment from the courts for what seem to be rather minor charges, which in turn should probably give the clubs grounds to only give them short suspensions

i hope thats the case anyway, would be a shame to lose some good players to the game for what in my eyes is pretty minor

Who cares anyway, half the league probably enjoys a good hit every now and then.

Aren't the best thinkers in the world these blokes.

Yup, every code would be ****ting itself. Great tweet from Titus O'Reilly, comparing sports teams on the Gold Coast to invading Russia in winter...

As I understand it, the Crime and Corruption Commission only has jurisdiction here in Qld

They have said that if there are to be any more players given notices to appear in Court, it will happen this week or early next week

In view of the above two lines, the Broncos and Suns in particular will be holding their collective breath until late next week

It's a legal minefield really, as I understand that even those guys so far that have been given notices (such as Hunt) have not even been charged by police; however with the notices relating to such serious things (such as trafficking) it's hard to see how they shouldn't at least be stood down on full pay, but allowed to train so as to keep in good shape in readiness for a return if cleared

Great news for the Blue and Gold juggernaut this morning as Kieran Foran signs a four year deal (apparently). Now we just need Hayne to flop in pursuit of his NFL career and to come back and we'll have a ridiculous back line

one would assume though that its the hayne money being used to get foran, reckon he'll end up playing rugby in europe if he flops in the nfl

foran would be huge for parra, easily in the top 10 players in the game possibly top 5 imo

Not gonna do him any good if Takarangi is in the centres for us again next year though. I know he can be damaging but I don't especially rate him

Sorry to post this so late but I'm not sure I have it in me to run the tipping this year guys. Combination of a few time related factors for the most part.

Souths comfortable enough last night in a typically error prone season opener. They're still going ot be massively hard to beat. Them or the Rooters I reckon.
