The rugby league weekend has concluded and a NRL Round 1 review will be everywhere on many fine websites and news locations.
It is also available on our website as well.
We provide our thoughts on the best and blurst of the weekend, as well as provide our NRL Round 1 Review Team of the Week. Plus our 5-4-3-2-1 points for the best overall player this week contributing to the inaugural Shearer medal.
BEST BIT OF THE WEEKEND
Having Rugby League back and Fox League to show it all. That and the ending to the Cowboys and Raiders game.
WORST BIT OF THE WEEKEND
Penrith. The killer of the Footy Tipping competition and Multi Builder. And for the many who tipped them as premiership hopefuls. Only one game though, and loads O talent there.
Inglis playing on despite injury not far behind.
6 QUESTIONS FROM NRL ROUND 1….
Will both the Sharks or Broncos play finals?
Will the loss of Inglis affect Souths chances?
Where did the Dragons form come from?
Is Golden Try better than Golden Point?
Will the Hayne Plane take off from the Gold Coast?
Who loves their Sunday footy?
….AND THE INSTANT ANSWERS
No if you saw him play for Souths last year.
Mmmmm. Who knows.
Every chance given his changes of mind lately and getting in trouble for having not enough team spirit.
Depends which part of Sydney you are from.
