*Official* NRL 2013 Season thread


Cricketer Of The Year
Well trials and whatnot have started. Time for another edition of the greatest game of all. Will the Sharks finally welcome Harold Holt through the front door? Will Matt Elliott's Warriors recover from their terrible 2012? Will Thurston finally get a premiership that isn't a footnote? Will we lol@Souffs or stand in awe? Or will Slater, Thurston and Cronk just grind out another one? All will be answered.

For my part.

I'll be running CW DreamTeam again, and will run the tipping if there are no objections. I know some people are into supercoach so feel free to sign up for both. Or we can combine them, I'm pretty easy. As long as Benchy plays I'm absolutely fine with it.

So sign up at NRL Dream Team 2013 - NRL.com. Invites should have been sent out to those who played last year. League code is 644023.

Gus Gould is working on a new promotion. GWS play one game as the Panthers and the Panthers play one game as the Giants

Loving that George Rose has "WAC" shaved into the side of his head.

It's doubly annoying because IIRC Sky do have a weekly round up show, as well as the Grand Final and the Origin Series.

Brett Stewart arrested after an altercation on the weekend.

Probably a better fight than either of the Williams or Cooper bouts tbf.

Reports I've heard said it was last weekend. Is it an earlier incident just been widely published?
