We're only a week away until the start of the Cyril Connell and Mal Meninga Cup competitions. Redcliffe dominated both comps, will they remain on top or will we see the other affiliates stand up?

Tomorrow is also the start of the Harold Matthews and SG Ball Cup competitions. The NSWRL has announced a new streaming platform that will stream all their competitions and fans are being offered a two week free trial.

With the QRL's streaming partner, Clutch, going into administration, there hasn't been any word on a replacement just yet.

I was looking forward to catching up on some games during the off-season only to discover the unfortunate news.

It’s an interesting setup now with HNWP running alongside NRLW now and QLD not doing the same.

Allows the girls more footy so can only be a good thing I suppose. Kezie Apps is at Toowoomba for instance

Does anyone have any idea if they have replaced Qplus tv with a new streaming service?

Is the only word I've heard on the matter.

If it's like NSWRL TV, I'd expect an announcement to be made later in the week and it'll likely be through Vimeo.

Ben Ikin has cleared TPJ to return to the QLD cup. sounds like TPJ might be interested in playing for Souths Logan under Hunt.

Ben Ikin said

“It would be great to see Tevita back in our competition,” said QRL chief executive Ikin.

“He made the decision to step away from rugby league to pursue other opportunities.

“We are very proud of our competition and for those that choose it as a destination, someone of Tevita’s profile and ability is a vote of confidence in what the Hostplus Cup competition brings to the rugby league ecosystem.

“We would certainly register his deal.”

Just turned 28, Pangai Jr has played 138 first-grade games and Ikin is adamant the former Bronco can again succeed in the NRL.

“Of course Tevita can make it again in the NRL,” he said.

“If Souths Logan is the place he wants to play at, that’s a great club with a great history.

“I think the world of Karmichael Hunt, he is an NRL head coach of the future.

“Tevita just needs to get himself back in an environment he is enjoying and where he fits in and finds a way to play his best football consistently.

“No-one can deny Tevita’s footballing ability, so if he sees the Hostplus Cup as a good way for him to step back into the game, we’d welcome him to our competition.”



TPJ Said

“The Queensland Cup is definitely an option,” Pangai Jr said.

“Me and ‘Hodgo’ caught up in October for the fight in Townsville, we fought on the same card. I was having a joke with him about playing Queensland Cup and now it might become a reality.

“It would be pretty good to play for Souths Logan to help my fitness if I did come back to the NRL.

“I have a fight planned for March and hopefully after that fight I can start in the Queensland Cup and help some of the younger boys at Souths Logan.

“The speed isn’t the same as the NRL, but I believe they hit harder in the Queensland Cup.

“It can be more physical because there’s not as much wrestling as the NRL, so it would be a good test for me.”

I think we know why Jack Campagnolo signed in the super league. Sucks to be Albert Kelly and Radean Robinson.

Campagnolo had already left Souths and gone to Falcons and preseason with the Storm- then went to SL after Christmas and didn't go back to the Storm.
