    Has AKP really topped out? Probably not a bad idea to cash him in for someone like Bula.

    This is how I'm looking at it:

    AKP averaging 29.3 or 33.4 if you decide you want to exclude his first game where he got his donut.
    Currently priced at $388k (29.8 @13000 or 28.7 @13500).

    He probably needs 35+ just to go up 10k. He's just as likely to lose that 10k.
    Not a lot of movement either way and he doesn't play the first bye so not worth holding IMO when the money can be better spent elsewhere for points or cash gains.

    What is real? How do you define real? If you're talking about what you can feel, what you can smell, what you can taste and see, then real is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain.

    On Campbell Graham he makes some massive defensive plays most games shuts down so much. He makes so many tough runs out of yardage too he’s always there. Both these aspects of play you need in origin. This season he has improved his attacking game as well. He can also do a fine job centre or wing.

    "Sadly this bloke just can’t lock down a spot at a club but it doesn’t surprise me, from all accounts he is definitely a bit out there.

    My cousin is a strength and conditioning coach for the bulldogs and said that after full time of a game this year while they were in the sheds, Kyle showed up in a long black trench coat and black polarised sunglasses after using the restroom. As she was dealing with the 15 injured players, she saw him drag two chairs to the middle of the sheds and sit down.

    He motioned for her to join him, and she eventually obliged. Flanagan opened both hands to reveal a blue and red pill. My cousin repeatedly refused, and Flanagan ended up taking both. He remained in the sheds for hours and showcased his impressive results from two doses of Viagra."

    Sounds like a standard post game recovery session


    One of these types of stories come out for pretty much every player being scapegoated for their teams below average performance (or players ill advisedly signed to a long and expensive contract which it is now in the clubs interest to try and terminate as cheaply as possible). Fans are generally idiots.

    That's true. I like it.

    Knights and bulldogs after parra though. Tempts me to keep him until end of R12.

    And yes, it sounds made up because it is. References to the matrix.

    Was just a funny read.

    On the field he stands so tall,
    Ryan Sutton, rugby league's wall,
    Muscles flexing, power shown,
    Opponents feel his strength, full-blown.

    But not just brawn, his mind's sharp too,
    Leadership and teamwork, he'll pursue,
    A true team player, he'll always be,
    Ryan Sutton, a rugby league prodigy.

    He’s ok I guess, I’m hoping Freddy picks him for an easy win for the maroons. Would be a bit worried if they went Lomax. I’m glad Lomax has been dropped hopefully he falls off the radar and picks Campbell

    Surely we play full backs or halves in the centre again. It just makes so much sense.

    Wighton and trell centers.
