Merrin can defend and he can OFFLOAD but unlike frizzle or debelin he isn't a running back in attack.

The big question is seeing the NRL stood a clubs player down who hasn't been convicted of anything except maybe in the court of public opinion HOW MUCH salary cap relief will they allow the Dragons.

Theoretically it should be the total of Debelins contract money and seeing they stood him down the NRL should pay for it
BUT you can bet the NRL will more than likely leave the Dragons paying for a player they cant use and being allowed "some" cap relief which they will also have to pay for.

The womens game is very competitive and no handbags at 5 paces pusing and shoving.
Its even better than Lingerie NFL.
It can only get better so a few more teams and a couple more games in a season will make a big difference.
