    I think the 4 teams should have been teams out of the top 8 and played in the last round over there.

    Mad Monday celebrations would have been great and easy to plan!

      How is it a loophole? He is missing games because of his suspension.
      One of my lessons at law school was that there's no such thing as a loophole

        Haha fair. I would consider coming out of rep retirement to reduce a suspension length a loophole (unless he stayed un-retired and racked up some more games) but it irks me when our own supporters buy into the media’s click bait jargon calling it a ‘loophole’. It’s little pot shots like this from the media that fools people into think the club gets preferential treatment. When it’s actually just the rules.

        He is going to miss 7 games, the term of his suspension. If they don’t want rep games to count, change the rules, let him play them and only count NRL games.

        I feel like we get unfair treatment on-field because of these agendas driven by the media and the unconscious bias created from them.. As a team we are always pinned for shite I see other teams regularly get away with.

          Hopefully he can leave early and seek out a good psychologist while he's in Las Vegas.

          I can do without the anxiety he causes me each season.
          1985: 1 try vs Parramatta, 1 try vs Manly, 1 try vs Wests, 2 tries vs Souffs
          1986: 2 tries vs Illawarra, 1 try vs Balmain, 2 tries vs Norths.

            Isn’t game 4 only if NZ make it to the final?

              I think the final would be game 3, the All Stars match is game 4 I believe. Seeing he has served 3, that would then be all 7.

                  Has the NRL confirmed the internationals will count or is it still to play out in the media and whatever the public opinion is will be the outcome.

                        We used to have empires run by emperors. Then we had kingdoms run by kings.

                            I already have. Lost cause though, they're just a licence to print money.

                                Looks like he will be back in round 2.
                                The NRL won't count the all stars games as part of his suspension.
