    Good for him, but keep Dugan away from him!

    Just didnt want to take space for one selection. Seems we have a few. Good on them. Hopefully they come back injury free.

    At least some interest from Panther fans in the world cup now.

    RCG should kill it.

    Congrat's to all our players who end up being selected in the sides to compete in the 2017 Rugby League World Cup. Very pleased for RCG and Josh Mansour to get late call up's. I think in the end they have both earnt there call up's. Mansour was an Australian Rep last year and RCG on late season form was one of the form front rowers of the competition.

    This is Josh's destiny. What an incredible year for him. The baby's due one year after his injury. Going by the size of Mrs Mansour it must be any day now. Good luck Sauce.

    Well done to all players but especially RCG! Always knew the big fella was destined for rep honours! He might not have a fast play the ball like Woodsy but I guarantee you he will never get caught out walking back on the inside as the opposition scores like those peaheart nsw starting props.

    Wallace ruled out of Scotland. I thought the injuries the back half of the year would take their toll on him.

    I had Stein close to first grade. A week later he wasn't making NSW Cup. I'm clearly a very good judge but I like what i've seen from him.

    St George must have a permanent seat on the Security Council for Dugan to get in that squad.

    If he wasn't running back to the halfway line after an opposition try,he was on the ground playing hurtees.
