Nice to see Kurt Mann get a shot at 5/8 for the Dragons.
Solid game, nothing spectacular but came up with a try assist and some good positional play. Would expect to see him there until Widdop returns.
We must all hang together or, most assuredly, we shall all hang separately

Yeah, sad news. Seeing a number of our guys play 300+ games, you can forget how brutal the game can be on your body. Best of luck in retirement.

Parramatta Eels centre Kirisome Auva'a retires from NRL at 26

Parramatta centre Kirisome Auva'a has today retired from football - at just 26 years of age.

A nagging back injury has resulted in Auva’a’s premature retirement from the game and the shattered Samoan international told teammates of his decision this morning.

"My back has been bad for several years and even after surgery a couple of years ago, I’ve had problem after problem," Auva'a told Wide World of Sports.

Widdop back this week for the Dragqueens. Apparently needs a shoulder reconstruction but is putting it off until after the finals. I wonder just how right it is to go? Expect the Broncos to send big bodies at him all night long...

See if he can make a difference to the team. Their forwards have been underperforming and Hunt has been polaying... well, like Hunt.
