    Where song originated from
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ErHFQ3r9K2Y

    Viral Sea Shanty meme
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9zQ_0TyawCs

    Trailer park boys Cat version - brilliant for those who know the boys.

    You need the song in your head to sing along to the shanty i decided on making this morning in work haha. Can add verses because i could go on for hundreds of verses to cover everyone here lol but had to stop somewhere and was all in good fun.

    Hope you enjoy

    A Ode to fantasy from the sea.

    There once was a man, great as he
    Who created fantasy stats for us to see
    His name was juzzy and his intentions were free
    But please visit his site and send mead

    Soon may the fantasy man come
    With meters in the form of kick and run
    One day, when the assists get done
    Fiona, will take her leave and go


    A second man come, with a bright idea
    To form a site from the old sportal smear
    He tried real hard to welcome us all
    But a few had views too small

    Soon may the fantasy man come
    With meters in the form of kick and run
    One day, when the assists get done
    Fiona, will take her leave and go

    Along came a cow, a whizz on the sheets
    Aiding all the locals with great fantasy heat
    Followed by a herd a real nice flock
    Including the number 1 softcock

    Soon may the fantasy man come
    With meters in the form of kick and run
    One day, when the assists get done
    Fiona, will take her leave and go

    The fanatics were born from sweat and beer
    Along with some add ons from far and near
    They talk some shit and the blows are low
    But it’s the only place that I go

    Soon may the fantasy man come
    With meters in the form of kick and run
    One day, when the assists get done
    Fiona, will take her leave and go

    Onto the game and what will it bring
    An 80 minute hooker and new fantasy king
    Ghost TBs, and strips can go to hell
    A’ shitty fullback season from Latrell’

    Soon may the fantasy man come
    With meters in the form of kick and run
    One day, when the assists get done
    Fiona, will take her leave and go

    Will Haas start start R1, will he end up in jail
    I’m betting on Milford as a fantasy fail
    Will Izzy join the NRL with his views on cock
    Will Connor Watson start at lock (huh)

    Soon may the fantasy man come
    With meters in the form of kick and run
    One day, when the assists get done
    Fiona, will take her leave and go

    Two gun halves, or one and cow
    Please fantasy gods will you show me how
    Start with Teddy and his shit 2 rounds
    Or miss his hundie on the Sydney cricket ground

    Soon may the fantasy man come
    With meters in the form of kick and run
    One day, when the assists get done
    Fiona, will take her leave and go

    Do you start picking now or wait til TLT
    Do you wait for the trials for a nice rookie
    Are you on draft 1, or draft number 3
    How do you rates Rabbits draft number 40?

    Soon may the fantasy man come
    With meters in the form of kick and run
    One day, when the assists get done
    Fiona, will take her leave and go

    Now this was the tale of fantasy fun
    Do you start with cows, or middies or guns
    Listen to the pros with their stat on stat
    Or fail the POD route with Matt

    Soon may the fantasy man come
    With meters in the form of kick and run
    One day, when the assists get done
    Fiona, will take her leave and go

    Why is anything a thing.

    Why is the number 1 album in Australia the soundtrack to a kids TV show? Why does everyone want to buy stock in the computer game equivalent of blockbuster? What was so interesting about baby sharks a few years ago? Why isn't Mitch Aubusson the next bachelor?

    Just accept stuff happens and go with it.

    This is a valid question... I would expect SI to be first in line with an application to join the show

    I find Andrew Fifita's inclusion as starting prop in the allstars interesting. Has apparently dropped 20 kg and isn't wearing a knee brace in training photos. Have him in my team currently, will stay there if he looks half decent in the all stars game.

    From Foxsports. Makes Hoy a bit more interesting?

    PONGA’S EXTENDED LAYOFF

    Kalyn Ponga may not return until Round 6.

    Young gun Newcastle fullback Kalyn Ponga is unlikely to feature this season until round six at the earliest.

    Ponga has started running again after undergoing an off-season shoulder reconstruction but the Queensland Origin whiz kid still has a reasonable size recovery mountain in front of him.

    The Knights have also suffered another set back with teenage rookie Bailey Hodgson - the nephew of Raiders captain Josh - re-injuring the patella in his knee.

    Hodgson, 19, has been adjusting to life in Newcastle by living with Knights senior player Blake Green and his family.

    With Ponga tipped to be unavailable for at least the opening five rounds, Tex Hoy will get first crack at wearing the Knights no.1 jumper.

    Kalyn Ponga may return before then.

    Just went looking through photos of this year and he looks extremely fit. Sounds like he has a bit of fire back in his belly as well after moving to the bench last year. Not sure the minutes are there for him with the likes of Royce Hunt and Toby Rudolf coming through, Tolman joining the squad and already having Sharon Woods, Hamlin-Uele and possibly McInnis making an early arrival.

    I wouldn't read too much into Fifita starting in the all-stars game. The Indigenous all-stars have much less depth in front row than the Sharks do.

    With Woods, Tolman, Hamlin-Uele, Rudolph around, I am not sure Fifita will get the game time required to pump out big scores, even if his knee has improved. I think he's done as a fantasy force. I'll miss him, its not too long ago I used to captain him regularly.

    No quotes - just throwing it out there. Guess we’ll see if anything more comes out of it over the next few weeks
