The NRLW Grand Final will now be played immediately prior to the NRL Grand Final.

Instead of it being the first game of the day like it was before, it will now be played after the InTrust Super State Championship Grand Final.

And yet again, the punishment benefits future opposition rather than the team that suffered the foul play. Bloody frustrating.
It kinda does benefit the Knights though, gives them a slightly bigger chance to overtake Roosters on the ladder.

As much as I hate those drug taking cap cheats the Sharks have done a great job under Morris to stay in touch with the top 4 and are only just getting some of their injured players back.
Definitely a dark horse in this comp.

State of Origin Rep
Hooper is saying Pearce is the hot favorite for the Blues 7.

It's a very familiar scenario but has he ever been in better form around Origin? I'll be interested to see who they team him up with, if this does eventuate. Walker was a massive mistake obviously...but Cleary, rightly or wrongly, is the halves future for NSW.
