Andrew Fifita has revealed that he uncovered the financial irregularities which led to a boycott of the Tonga National Rugby League that has, in turn, seen the TNRL expelled by the International Rugby League.

The TNRL has a week to appeal the decision, but the verdict to kick them out has the potential to derail Tonga’s incredible rise in the international game.

Aren't they allowed to because he has less than a year on his current contract and it's after November 1?
I think that means they can talk to him about next year. Not this year!

Boom Newcastle centre Bradman Best has been ruled out of early rounds due to a foot injury.

“Best will miss the weekend trial (against the Dragons) due to a fractured foot,” The Knights said in a statement.

I bought my tickets last night and for the first time since the Dogs played the Storm at the Adelaide Oval in 2010, I'll be attending a rugby league game in 2020.

Origin at the Adelaide Oval ... here I come :cool: But I won't be cheering for NSW or Qld. I'll be cheering on any Manly players in the game.

We have been waiting for Origin to come to Adelaide since the early 1990s. I wasn't going to pass up this opportunity.

HASTINGS OPEN TO CODE SWITCH

Jackson Hastings admits he would be keen to switch codes, following reports of interest from a leading English rugby union club.

Hastings, the reigning Super League Man of Steel, is being targeted by Gloucester.

Currently contracted to Wigan, the former Roosters and Manly playmaker is understood to have a clause in his two-year contract which allows him to return to the NRL should an offer come through.

It is not clear, however, whether that also applies to rugby union.

Yeah pretty rough on the guy

God haven't the Broncos rubber stamped some rubbish contracts of late, Bird, Boyd, I'd argue Milford

This game puts too much pressure on players returning from injury. I sure hope Jurbo and AFB are ready. Prefer to see them both have a few extra weeks recovery myself. It's a long long season.

More and more players ruled out for the bulk of the year before the season has even begun. Bird, Ryan James, Lodge, Cameron King, Foran, Fainu (apparently), Billy Smith, Bunty Afoa, Jackson Frei.

New South Wales coach Brad Fittler wants to see State of Origin selection rules relaxed to allow superstar forward Jason Taumalolo play for Queensland, but Maroons coach Kevin Walters says he has enough talent already and doesn’t need Taumalolo.

“I think the isolation is getting to ‘Freddy’ a little bit,” Walters told Big Sports Breakfast.

“We’ll be okay – I mean he’s a great player – but he’s put his allegiance now to Tonga.


That's very un-queenslandlike of Walters

Usual status quo from spaceman fittler though

They have a golden egg atm and I have no idea why anyone would entertain the idea of tinkering with Origin.

As if they made if a quasi all stars by having players like Taumalolo or if like Lowe suggested they open up to a maori team etc I'd completely lose interest

Following the injury to Mose Masoe during yesterday’s friendly with Wakefield Trinity, the club can confirm Mose has suffered a serious spinal injury and was operated on overnight at Leeds General Hospital.

The club will provide further updates as soon as possible.


A twitter update showing Mose's progress.
Catching and passing a footy!

'Put me in coach!'

It's a brutal sport, even for man mountains.

SBW has done quarantine and is now in the nrl bubble.

Though this is the car he's driving around in.

I've given up asking about what's in the cap and what's not. It's easier to assume uncle Nick just does the dodgy now vlandys is in chum mode.
