    With a few rule changes/interpretations being announced for this season, are tries from kicks still worth 4 points?

    Josh Mansour is apparently on the move. I'd take him on a 2 year deal.

    Hey, Mary is a nugget for making excuses about tries from kicks.
    However, I seriously think they should be worth less, not all are boring, but 5 tackles then put it up... is a bit dull and predictable.

    Maybe they can still be 4 points but no conversion attempt.

    Personally, I find it boring.

    I don't mind punting the ball during a game but l'd rather we punt our coach fulltime!

    Reading in today's Tele Sport that St.Helens have no intention of allowing Ben Barba to walk away from his contract and that he WILL remain at the club until the end of 2019 season .

    Such a shame , more so for the Sharks who - still have room to move under our salary cap . That sounds familiar, I know I have heard that before somewhere ?

    Don't mind UK clubs enforcing contracts for aussie players that are unable to play for the NRL. I would presume Barba is able to return to the NRL in 2019.

    No issue with players going overseas however, It's a bit rich to dump the club that has given them a contract.

    Yes that is so right SEAT 1A , those particular players who go to the ESL to wash away their sins and continue their ' rickety ' careers . They have as in Barba's case , lost a lot of respectability because of his actions . Yet the English clubs offer them a lifeline only for these ungrateful sods to throw it away at the first hint of being able to return to the NRL .

    In this particular instance I have a feeling that there was more involved behind the scenes in Sydney that made him decide that he wished to return . However I am glad that St.Helens remained firm on the issue as far too many ex NRL players have done exactly what he was hoping to do .

    Heard on the weekend someone talking to Brian Johnstone 2 years ago when he was corporate . He was asked about Doust and responded that it will take 2 years but it will happen. Not a fan apparently. This bloke said Johnstone was very well liked and very , very positive tee-totaling bloke

    I met Brian Johnstone. Really nice bloke who loves the club. Seeing he had Doust's role before him, he would be an obvious choice to replace Doust.

    Lurker is reporting Reagan Campbell-Gillard is going to be the next player out of Penrith. Is he worth a look at.

    I believe they are related. Could be a plus if he becomes available
