    Paps resigns with storm

    well done to the Storm... recruited Papenhuyzen from the hapless Tigers, developed him into one of the best fullbacks in the game and now he takes unders to remain at the club I'm jealous

    Burton to Centre?

    Brett Kenny, Laurie Daley, and Brad Fittler were all great centres, too... great ball runners... but any very good/great ball runner with good to great passing and kicking games should be in the halves (except in rep football)

    What Dogs want before signing sacked Dragon; Pangai ‘can’t make up his mind’

    to be fair, De Belin has the presumption of innocence and was not ultimately convicted... however, the fact that after such loyalty from the Dragons, De Belin attended said BBQ and was not subsequently sacked though indicates to me that the Dragons wanted Vaughn's $800K a season wage off their books
