Yeah, for sure. It's a brutal sport.
It's a collision sport and most injuries happen by accident. Take the injury to Tenterfield as an example. There was no foul play involved yet he may suffer the ill effects for life.
Head knocks may indeed contribute to dementia, but no doctor will ever know how many of these were caused by accidents. It seems to me that most of the head injuries are being caused by 'friendly fire'; gang tackles gone wrong.
No one disputes that the NRL should take action to punish deliberate head knocks, but they should realise the majority of injuries are simply the result of a sport in which physicality is the cornerstone.

Turbo has all the skills of the great centres/fullbacks of the past with the added bonuses of having the size to break tackles and the height to catch bombs. He also imposes himself on a match and is prepared to take hit-ups and support the ball carrier. He doesn't sit back and wait for opportunities to be presented to him.
I had to scoff when I read The Mole's critique of the players in the SOO. He gave Turbo an 8. Just shows you how little weight we should place in the opinions of The Mole.

Was MOM part of the multi? Congrats either way.
Nah won't let you put MoM in the multi that was a separate $10 bet.
All in all $20 of bets paid off big time.

If turbo or DCE are out tomorrow I'll throw on Saab anytime try scorer into cowboys win though

Surely DCE and Jake play tomorrow. One radio station today was saying Tom and Jake won't back up
