- The All-Stars game was a great kick-off to the season with the Indigenous team giving up a 18-6 lead to go down 36-28 for the Artie Beetson Trophy. Great game played with plenty of passion and class.
- The Manly Sea-Eagles are looking to sue their former coach Des Hasler

- Greg Inglis faces 6 weeks off, as he comes to terms with an injury sustained in the All-Stars game.

- DAVID GALLOP still plays boss of the NRL.....???
