    I wonder if JAC will play for the Storm. Hopefully Teddy and Moses line up for the Tigers, could be a smokey.

    Are you putting your hand up to supply the B sample ?

    Seriously though - I thought you had to notify ASADA 6 months before you returned to competition and make yourself available for testing. How do the retired players the likes of Fittler and Wiki etc. coming back as a draw card get around that ?

    Knights to win their pool, if no one else was playing.

    I think we'll do OK though. 2nd in the pool.

    These old "legends" diminish the tournament IMO. At what point do we draw the line? Fittler and Wiki in their 40's? What if Wally Lewis wants a game, or Changa Langlands? In a few years can Sam Burgess come back? If he is a big enough name, how about George or Tom. Or Luke for that matter. If you draw the line at Luke, what about if you are able to get all 4 together again. Is that okay?

    You should be trying to get promote the tournament as being strong. If you want to see these old guys then have an exhibition match before the final between Australia Old Boys vs NZ Old Boys.

    I would also like to see the weekend finish with the All-Stars match, with those players not eligible for the 9's but that's just me.

      Current date/time is Sat Aug 19, 2017 9:18 pm
