    The pre-season Premiership market;

    Rabbits- 5.50
    Roosters- 7.00
    Doggies- 7.50
    Panthers- 9.00
    Broncos- 10.00
    Cowboys- 12.00
    Storm- 13.00
    Warriors- 13.00
    Sea Eagles- 15.00
    Sharks- 26.00
    Knights- 31.00
    Tigers- 31.00
    Eels- 34.00
    Dragons- 41.00
    Titans- 51.00
    Raiders- Write you own ticket.

    Melbourne look to be the the value bet for those who're into long range wagers. I expect the Broncos to be in the hunt and at least make the semis under Bennett. And the Raiders, under the guidance of Sticky, might as well have their name engraved on the wooden spoon now. Wouldn't be surprised to see him shown the door during the season, and would bet on that if there was a market.

    Yep. Them and the warriors. Those are my 2 future plays.

    It's more or less a pick between the top 8, imo

    I doubt it...bookies have a cautious dollar on the Warriors...if they can get another decent centre they will be in the hunt...nobody mentioned the Belmore Poodles...those mongrels are never to be ignored

    And more importantly, someone drops the bombshell on them that there's actually 2 halves to a Rugby League game. How many times have they been 12-16 points up at half time, not score a point in the 2nd half, and lose by 20?. More than I can recall that's for sure, and they'll never be a threat to win the Premiership till they sort this out (and get more good players obviously).

    The feeling here is that they should learn to keep a good coach when you have one...i.e.Ivan Cleary

    ^This is possibly, no definitely, the first time I must agree with anything you've said when it comes to sport. What Cleary is managing to achieve at the Panthers is quite amazing.

    Pleeze...I have posted many times about the morons that let Ivan Cleary go...when he really wanted to stay. The CEO responsible finally got the sack last season. McFadden is a decent coach but nowhere near as good as Ivan Cleary.

    ^That might be true, but 99.999% of the stuff you post about sports is 24 carat bullshit. We're all entitle to (at times) debatable opinions, but you're either trolling or completely clueless on most matters. Especially Rugby League.

    I reckon Souths have Premiership syndrome...too many stars to fit under the cap...which is sad for the game IMO...Manly are back to being silvertails without the bloody silver...so good luck to him but he is going to a club over the hill.

    ^ Yes I'm sure the Warriors will dominate - not.

    Luke never got much of a run at Souths, Manly can get him on the field.

    Which witch doctor did you go to, can be a big difference in opinion.

    Just been watching the Aukland nines replays and was looking at all the signs held up by the fans among the usual "rabbits are great" Eels rock" I had to have a small giggle to myself ( nearly wet my pants) There was a guy holding up a sign with an arrow at 45 degrees saying "She Farted", I may be sick but that was a good one when it is not expected.

    Kiwis who have lived in Oz came back with an allegiance to their local NRL team...Warriors are number one but there are plenty of second clubs...geez there was some great footy played

    Personally I thought it was a very high standard of league. There were some massive hits and the defensive game was up on last year. One highlight for me, especially from the Warriors was the inclusion of young fringe players with the older heads to show them around. Those younger guys were motivated and playing for keeps. So missing the likes of Jonathan Thurston didn't really matter as far as I was concerned.

    A boozy night out in a northern Arizona bar ended with blood dripping from a bouncer's head while South Sydney captain John Sutton and teammate Luke Burgess, both the worse for wear, sat handcuffed on the side of the road.

    Fairfax Media has obtained the police report issued by Flagstaff police which details the behaviour that led to Sutton and Burgess being detained for eight hours and contributed to the former being stood down as captain. Both players were charged with "disorderly conduct, fighting", a misdemeanour offence, while Burgess was also hit with an assault charge. All charges were subsequently dropped. Police also noted the pair had "bloodshot red watery eyes and smelled strongly of intoxicating beverage".

    The other man involved in the incident was Patrick Scruggs, a 21-year-old local security guard.

    Flagstaff police had responded to reports of a fight in Monsoons Chinese Bistro and Sushi at 12.50am on November 30. The report says trouble arose when an intoxicated Sutton was asked by Scruggs to leave the restaurant, which doubles as a late-night club on weekends.

    "[Sutton] was asked to leave the bar," the police statement read. "After being asked to leave, he slammed his fist on the bar and said something to the effect of 'f--- this' and began telling bar staff to come outside with him."

    A supplementary police report indicated that Scruggs had been told by his manager that Sutton had spat on the bar counter and staff were "afraid of them causing an altercation".

    "The male subject wearing a black shirt [Sutton] then started yelling and 'acting like an asshole'," the police report quoted Scruggs as saying.

    It is alleged that while Sutton was yelling, bouncers came inside the establishment and asked him to leave. This is where Burgess became involved.

    "Burgess grabbed the victim and threw him to the ground causing his forehead to bleed," the police statement read.

    A supplementary document, written by a second police officer, added: "Patrick stated that the other male subject [Burgess], wearing a white shirt then started pushing him and took him to the ground and began fighting.

    "Patrick stated that he put his male subject in a 'head lock'. Patrick stated that he was hit during the altercation and had a big bruised cut on his right forehead."

    The police detained the two players as soon as they arrived on the scene. Scruggs declined medical attention but stated he wanted to pursue charges.

    "Upon arrival I observed a white male wearing a Monsoons t-shirt bleeding from his head and pointing towards to (sic) male subjects standing in the street," the Flagstaff police officer noted. "I exited my patrol vehicle and was immediately told by several people the two males standing in the street had been causing problems inside the bar. Due to the information I had at the time, I detained both males into handcuffs and secured [their hands] behind their back and instructed them to sit on the curb.

    "I spoke with John and Luke, both of whom had bloodshot red watery eyes and smelled strongly of intoxicating beverage. Both males were adamant they had done nothing wrong and kept asking why they had been detained.

    "It should be noted that John Sutton had no photo identification and stated he is an Australian citizen."

    Fairfax Media understands Scruggs quit his job shortly after the incident.

    Sutton and Burgess were then driven to the Coconino County Detention Facility, where they had an eight-hour wait before the charges were withdrawn.
