41. As much as social media like to pretend they wouldn’t, both Sonny Bill Williams and Jarryd Hayne would walk into almost any side in the NRL. That being said, I still never want to see that ridiculous ‘marquee player allowance’ used. Donate it to charity or invest it in bush footy.

42. I wish Fox Sports would broadcast more of the NYC competition. Watching the likes of Val Holmes, Tommy Turbo and co run around prior to their NRL debuts made their top grade call ups even more fun.

43. I love the way Henry Perenara signals ‘try’ when he sends a decision up to the video referee. Intense.

44. If I were naming my favourite 13, it’d be:

  1. James Tedesco
  2. Valentine Holmes
  3. Jack Bird
  4. James Roberts
  5. Jordan Rapana
  6. Anthony Milford
  7. Blake Austin
  8. Andrew Fifita
  9. Josh Hodgson
  10. James Graham
  11. Wade Graham
  12. Matt Gillett
  13. Josh Jackson

Looks a lot like my fantasy UL team!

45. Despite moves to quicken the ruck area, there is still too much wrestling and slowing down. It’s going to take a referee blowing 20 penalties a game for it to stop. No one wants to see that. Wrestling is, unfortunately, here to stay.
