You have to credit Bellamy for that. He may be hard to like, but his record speaks for itself.

Interesting that many of those on the recent get together of indigenous players seems to have resulted in some very unhappy players - wanting more money. Mitchell's has ended in tears. Addo Car seems to be starting something. Walker is also after more.

I wonder if they got together and decided on something ?

We also got the anthem stuff too.

What do others think of the ESL's policy of club's "loaning" players to other teams for the Season. Someone you may need in 2020 but not in 2019 could have been loaned to a needy team.

I think there is merit in this and help manage the Cap.

Gavin Badger is a survivor of child sex abuse. The NRL referee talks to NRL.com about his harrowing experience, how it impacted his life and why he has gone public after more than 30 years in order to raise awareness about the issue.

The Australian Rugby League Commission (ARLC) held its first meeting for 2020 in Sydney today and has agreed on two key outcomes:

  1. It has accepted advice from the Australian Rugby League Indigenous Council (ARLIC) not to play the national anthem at the All Stars match on the Gold Coast.
  2. It has provisionally endorsed a new "Captain's Challenge" system to be implemented for the 2020 Telstra Premiership.

Robbie Kearns, Rodney Howe, Matt Geyer, Wayne Evans and Paul Bell weren’t all that the Storm inherited when the Perth Reds folded at the end of the Super League war in 1997.

No to a WA team until their lacklustre junior results improve.

I will be honest. Not singing the national anthem has placed a sour taste in my mouth when it comes to the fixture this Saturday night. I am not sure that I will actually bother watching it because of that. A footy match should never be political. I think there is a time and a place to voice your opinion and protest about these things. While I disagree with the opinion surrounding the national anthem, Australia Day etc, I support peoples' right to express their views. But, again, there is a time and a place, and this is not one of them.
