    ONE of the NRL's most respected medicos last night defended his club's use of insomnia drug Stilnox, describing it as a perfectly legitimate sleeping tablet provided it was used appropriately and any side-effects were closely monitored.

    You've got to respect his views, he has been conducting a pretty rigorous scientific study over the last 5 years or so and is well placed to comment on the effect of this drug. His guinea pig Jason King has been popping two Stillnox tablets before every NRL game and he has shown no side effects. If anything he has probably built up a tolerance to their effect as we have witnessed him actually playing like he is awake of late ;)

    Possible Manly players on Stilnox:

    Jason King -- see above
    Heathy -- lost all his dummy half zip
    Tony Williams -- takes him a quarter mile to hit top speed
    Glen Hall -- In his REM cycle whenever he has been on the field
    Kite -- accidently given double the dose during SOO 1 and 2.

    How do footy players have trouble sleeping at night?

    If I was getting paid the amount of cash they do to play sport for a living I think I would be punching plenty if Zs.

    If Stilnox is banned maybe they could still use botox.
