So he's seriously not going to get the vax no matter what. I don't understand it, but I respect the conviction.
Apparently Japan don't require covid vaccinations to enter the country, so I guess it makes sense.

Unless Norman is flat broke, I can't see how a player wasted their career after playing the game professionally for 11 years. Especially when they're paid extremely good money for doing so.

Norman won't be remembered as one of the great halves of his generation, but it wasn't fair to have those expectations in the first place.

He was always an enigmatic player with an odd running style that troubled the defence without necessarily being effective. Norman was great at making these half-breaks that would skittle the defence but made it difficult to link up with his support so a lot of promising plays would end there.

By the same token, there were times where Norman could land an inch perfect kick in heavy traffic or time a pass perfectly. He was a great highlights player and if you compiled all those moments it would make for a great package.

I'm glad you brought up his debut theshed theshed. I remember that like it was yesterday and being really thankful that Henjak was willing to take that risk to find somebody who played like Karmichael. It was extremely risky since Norman was still finding his feet at NYC and was only just starting to find success there but he shocked everybody that night. Of course it came out pretty quickly he wasn't really a natural fullback but for that brief occasion it was exciting to watch.

His tackle on the try line was brilliant .

Kick off to the 2022 season is slowing but surely creeping up on us. Teams are getting pretty close to finalising their squads, here's how many spots each team has open

Brisbane Broncos: 1 NRL, 3 Development
Canberra Raiders: 1 NRL, 2 Development
Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs: 1 NRL, 6 Development
Cronulla Sharks: 2 NRL 2 Development
Gold Coast Titans: 3 NRL, 2 Development
Manly Sea Eagles: 1 NRL, 4 Development
Melbourne Storm: 1 NRL, 3 Development
Newcastle Knights: 4 NRL, 3 Development
North Queensland Cowboys: 2 NRL, 3 Development
Parramatta Eels: 2 NRL, 3 Development
Penrith Panthers: 3 NRL, 2 Development
St George Illawarra Dragons: 2 NRL, 4 Development
South Sydney Rabbitohs: 3 NRL, 6 Development
Sydney Roosters: 0 NRL, 4 Development
Warriors: 3 NRL, 3 Development
Wests Tigers: 1 NRL, 3 Development

Worth noting a couple of things, both Jacob Kiraz and Issac Lumelume have joined the Bulldogs. I presume they're both on NRL deals since they were on one with their previous clubs and were signed for the season ahead so somebody else maybe forced to go. They also have to announce at least 3 development signings.

Clubs that have more than 1 spot left have to announce more signings to at least reach 29 before the start of the season. So Cronulla, Gold Coast, Newcastle, North Queensland, Parramatta, Penrith, St George, South Sydney and the Warriors will have to announce more signings. Similarly teams that have more than 3 development spots will have to announce those signings ahead of time.

Newcastle is set to announce Edrick Lee who is awaiting clearance before signing his NRL deal. If Anthony Milford is cleared he should be added to the South Sydney squad as well. Their squad is looking very dicey to me, they still have a few key figures but there's a lot of inexperience there as well. As far as I know they don't have too many experienced players doing a train and trial either. I believe Jack Campagnolo, Dean Hawkins, Tallis Duncan, Shaq Mitchell and a young centre by the name of Josiah Karapani are the only players who have been identified thus far.

It's good to see the Dragons upgrade Tyrell Sloan to an NRL deal.

I thought he showed something at the back end of last season and he was one of those juniors who saved their best footy for the NRL. I was surprised he wasn't there to begin with and was shocked that the Dragons were willing to wait until mid-season to give him another game, when potentially he's their best option.

The Dragons are going to be a real work in progress. They have plenty of competition for spots and with the versatility of Bird and Mbye I can see them experimenting with their line-up constantly.

I just hope that Hook can settle on his line-up and can find some balance with the squad. If he can mix players like Amone, Sullivan, the Feagais, Shereb in the line-up I think it will go a long way towards rebuilding that club.
