    Is he indigenous? If so perhaps he claim that it was a cultural requirement that he drank the potion offered by the kurdaitcha man ;) Sorta like having to drink, use guns and ride trail bikes...

    The thing that concerns me with the Xerri business is how does a young 19 year old footballer get access to the cocktail of performance enhancing drugs he appears to have used. They have to come from somewhere. Who is advising him? Who is prescribing the drugs? Was the club aware of what occurred. His club’s recently history of the peptides issues, former coach in breach of his restrictions leading to his deregistration and not to mention the systematic salary cap rorting. There has to be serious questions around the administration of the Cronulla Sharks and what has occurred at the club over the past 8 or so seasons?

    Getting your hands on that stuff is easy. I could get all that shit delivered quicker than I could get a meal on uber eats. The fact he was dumb enough to use it is the issue.

    Just after some information on Robbie Duffy who played two NRL matches in 2001.

    I can't access any team lists from that period at the moment but all I know is that those two matches were off the bench and he later went to the Eels. Does anyone know what position/s he played and also whether he was a local junior?

    Thanks in advance.

    The bolded part, ridiculously easily... It may seem like it would be hard, and that it would take a shady back-alley deal with an even shadier bloke selling it, but I can guarantee that if you walk into any gym in the country, you could find at least 2 people to buy steroids from... It really is THAT easy.

    That name sounds so familiar and I have no idea why.

    http://www.rugbyleagueproject.org/matches/Custom/OC03LTQtLS0tLS0zMDk4LS0tLS0tLS0tLS0tLQ==

    This website is pretty good. Lists him as a lock. Doesn't give you any advanced stats like minutes played etc.

    Check out the Dogs team of 2001, belted us 40-14 on a Sunday afternoon:

    Fullback 1. Luke Patten
    Wing 2. Hazem El Masri
    Centre 3. Nigel Vagana
    Centre 4. Willie Talau
    Wing 5. Shane Marteene
    Five-Eighth 6. Braith Anasta
    Halfback 7. Darrell Trindall
    Front Row 8. Darren Britt (c)
    Hooker 9. Craig Polla-Mounter
    Front Row 10. Steve Price
    Second Row 11. Steve Reardon
    Second Row 12. Willie Mason
    Lock 13. Darren Smith

    Anyone remember when they actually started cheating the cap? That side is ridiculous.

    The 2002 squad that was illegally assembled included Roy Asotasi, Ben Harris, Tony Grimaldi, Paul Rauhihi, Matt Utai, Jonathan Thurston, Mark O'Meley, Hughes brothers.

    Dylan Edwards injury problems are a concern. He can’t seem to go long without picking up another injury, plus we just re-signed him. Not great having a spine position that’s always changing.

    When fans are allowed back the Roosters should consider implementing it full time, to cover up their lack of supporters.

    I thought I heard noise during the broadcast last night? I’ll pay more attention during this evening’s games to form a view.

    Hopefully by July there will be real fans back at the games, despite the usual anti sentiments expressed by our bureaucrats.

    I was not unhappy to see Penrith release Wayde Egan to the Warriors. He used to score tries for fun in the lower grades but was not able to repeat this in first grade. I am like most and enjoying the speed to the game under the new rule interpretation, This will suit Wayde I hope he goes well!!!

    Depth is always good. He would of been a good backup but certainly think Api is much better
