    Rogues Gallery AKA Bri, had a cup of tea with Alex Murphy and Maurice Lindsay and struck up a lifetime of loving Uncle Mo as much as Uncle Joe and his Minty Balls.

    Wonder how Trent Barratt would have fared in the Championship?
    The worst abuse of the salary cap since it's inception. The fact that it was so blatant and they were allowed to escape relegation because of it, probably has no equal in sport.

    It would be great if Danson did get involved with the sport. The usual response from Super League would be the current owners to hound him out of the sport through fear he will outbid them all.

    In truth we need a guy like this to buy multiple clubs and take a bigger stake in how the sport is run in general.
    I could agree with you but then we would both be wrong.
