    Rugby players first. Not the bulked up robots we have today. All it is now is about slowing the ruck down & bashing the opposition. We've listened to the Australians too much, and just ended up with a slower version of what they play.

    I hardly watch the NRL now. That 2nd state of origin last season was one of the most boring games of either code I've ever watched
    Spot on Ralph.
