Where was the photo taken at?
Just at the Lennox centre at Emu Plains.

Also to save quoting your other post, no it wasn't offensive, she knows she is a midget. lol. The funny part is she is the tallest one out of all her sisters.

She is not a midget in her homeland. My missus is 5 foot nothing too, as is my brother's missus (both Pinoys). It's because they come from a country that has been non-affluent for centuries, in particular their diet lacks calcium.

If the DT is to be believed, the NRL is going to roll back the 6 again rule and re-introduce penalties within 40 m of the attacking team's goal line.

That will be bad for us if it happens. It will make it much harder for us to keep the opposition away from our own try line, and the stoppages in play caused by the penalty and kick for touch will help opposition teams get a rest, which is particularly advantageous for bigger (and less fit) packs.

So the winner is decided on how many times the other person gets hit, or knocks out?
They have judges or sometimes the ref is sole judge. Points are awarded each round. 10-all is an even round. 10-9 is a round where one fighter is somewhat superior, 10-8 is when one fighter is clearly superior, and so on. Also the ref can stop the fight (technical knock out) if one fighter is unable to defend himself, and a boxer's corner can throw in the towel, which is like a resignation in chess. A knock out is when one fighter is knocked down and not ready to continue by the count of 10.

And yes it is an utterly barbaric sport, which you wouldn't be allowed to do with animals, but people are paying good money to watch it. Also shows what some will do for money.

If we're able to defend on the second and subsequent tackles, I'm sure we'll be able to do it on the first as well.
