    kodi nikorima named on bench for Broncos local trial this weekend

    from broncos site "He is expected to spend time in the halves when he comes on to replace one of the starting pair of Todd Murphy and Sam Scarlett."..

    That'll send broncos fans into a frenzy.

    He's a bit trappish but not the worst trap as will only get 30-35 mins but not more than 40 mins with a 4 forward bench. He never really has got big mins in the past at the Warriors & Panthers.

    Eels Injury update, De Gois resting will likely have an impact on round 1 teams and the Vave injury may see a different forward pack named in round 2 compared to that in round 1.

    Or it's just another example of the media controlling what the refs focus on by creating fake news.

    A little bit cynical....but I like it.

    I tend to think it is as simple as Fox trying to add any sort of bell's & whistle's to their product and not a lot of thought would have gone into any of the benefits/disadvantages for the game itself.

    I guess he needs any opportunity he can get in that position. Makes sense though. Why isn't he starting anyway? Not fully fit yet I guess.

    Would be interested to see who people think will be the highest scoring player from each position for total points.

    I'll go with

    HOK - Cameron Smith
    FRF - Jesse Bromwich
    2RF - Jack De Belin Shocked
    HLF - Daly Cherry Evans
    CTR - Tom Trbojevic
    WFB - James Tedesco

    Probably a bit of both.

    It is obviously key for them to attract as many fans away from 9 as possible so whatever they think can improve the game for the viewer they will do

    I think it's just to give Voss, Gaz and those other dickheads something to whinge about and fill up their bullshit made up shows that go round and round in circles.

    What's with this new 24/7 league show on Foxsports that's meant to be starting soon? Are they just going to show old Grand Final replays throughout the night to keep things ticking over?

    I don't think they have really gone into detail about what's going to be rolling. Probably just a shitload of old games I'd say.

    When I was filling out my fantasy team a Anthony Robbins/Chloe Madanes Life coaching add popped up

    Smart move but wrong kind of coaching

      Current date/time is Thu Dec 14, 2017 11:58 pm
