    Life after Pyrmont

    Some departing SMH journalists, however, are discovering there is life after Fairfax. Diary understands departing SMH sports editor Ben Coady and the paper’s senior rugby league writer Michael Chammas have been picked up to run the NRL’s news website, NRL.com. The hires have come as the NRL prepares to take over the running of the site from Telstra in December. Is this a move by the NRL to go into competition with other rugby league news sites? Insiders say no. They claim that it is simply improving the existing site, which many believe has not exactly set the world on fire over the last five years.

    I don't particularly care who they hire,as long as it's not Massoud or Slothfield.that would be the bottom of the barrel.

    Brad Walter is writing for RLWC so wouldn't be surprised to see him at NRL.com as well.

    Any chance Bill Pulver " temporary ' CEO of the ARU can get a gig at NRL.com. We need more leather patches, more Pimms and more Wolvos in the rl community.
