    I remember him and Upu Poching being the up-and-comers in the Warriors NYC team.
    Gavet didn't come right until his return to the Warriors. He was great for us this year.

    Pity Upu was never able to kick on.

    Hari Kondabolu would probably try to get him off the team anyway

    DT article about Ryan Matterson. This part talking about his concussions.

    Apart from suffering serious migraines, Matterson was also sleeping 16 hours a day, struggling with dizzy spells and battling to cope with even sunlight and the slightest noise.

    “And yet all the concussion tests suggested I was right to play,” he reveals. “That's the scariest thing, I was passing the tests.”

    But as for being pressured to play?

    “Even if somebody had suggested it, I couldn't,” he continues. “Even the lightest jog would leave me feeling like I'd played an NRL game.

    “So to then be passing the tests … I can't really explain what that's like.

    “But it gets to the point where you have to draw a line in the sand and say ‘no, I'm not right’.”

    That doesn't sound too good for Matterson & his career moving forward. I think that makes him too much of a risk for fantasy as well.

    Wighton's verdict comes down tomorrow and the injunction of the footage gets lifted. Should make for a nice pre season story

    One of the guys (kids) should have just decked the prick. I had heard rumours Wighton took on 5 guys and could handle himself but that didn't look the case to me. He just bullied these guys who didn't want to get into a pushing and shoving match with him.

    What were the Raiders thinking when they bitched about the NRL sanctions? He's gotten off lightly from the NRL and courts.

    Love the guy that eventually put one on him and almost floored him with that one shot.

    I now have confidence that there is at least one professional NRL player who I could knock out easily.

    Anyone know how Hayne's sexual assault case in the US went ? Hoping for his sake it's over. Nothing worse than when they over lap.

    I think its still ongoing, legal circles move slowly over there. Surely the Drag queens will lose interest in signing him now.

    And wow, Mcguire to the Cowgirls, didn't see that one coming.

    So where would McGuire play. It would have to be prop because he ain't going to oust Taumalolo from lock. A McGuire/McLean front row looks impressive & both have big motors.
    We all saw how when McLean returned it dented Taumalolo's fantasy points & if McGuire goes there it will be worse for Taumalolo. This will be like the Gallen affect on Fifita. Both McLean & McGuire will play big minutes, steal Taumalolo's hit ups & reduce his minutes.
