  • Check on the coach sacking meter
  • Should Peter ‘The Shark’ Beattie, the new ARLC Chairman, Commonwealth Games head honco and former Qld premier be demoted to kindergarten after his amazing blunder earlier this week?
  • Should Todd Carney be granted an NRL contract? Well Jillaroos star Ruan Sims believes no.
  • Saturday night will see Billy Slater bring up his 300th NRL game when the Storm tackle the Wests Tigers at AAMI Park.
  • Wallabies ace Israel Folau is refusing to rule out another code switch as he weighs up his future after six seasons in rugby.
  • Roosters, young superstar Latrell Mitchell has re-signed with the club along with Joseph Manu and Nat Butcher. The trio of young guns have been signed through till the end of the 2020 season.
  • Cronulla captain Paul Gallen has denied the Sharks deliberately targeted the injured knee of North Queensland co-captain Matt Scott during the Cowboys 20-14 win on the weekend.
  • A great week for the Warriors is about to get a whole lot better with an American millionaire set to buy the club. Hawaiian businessman Richard Fale has agreed to take control of the club in principle and could take charge as early as next week. Current Warriors owner Eric Watson has been trying to sell the club for months without any luck - until now.
  • Highly-rated teenager Adam Doueihi has been handed his NRL debut after South Sydney halfback Adam Reynolds was ruled out for up to a month following knee surgery.
  • The New Zealand Rugby League is putting the pressure on superstar Jason Taumalolo to backflip on his decision to represent Tonga at international level.
  • The Bulldogs have decided to hang on to experienced prop Aiden Tolman after earlier shopping him around. With James Graham gone and Dave Klemmer and Aaron Woods set to be missing for the State of Origin period, the Dogs have realised that they will be skinny for front row depth and will need Tolman.
