THE comp is an absolute pineapple at the moment. Just when you think you?ve got things figured out a crazed posse of Mongols ride into town and rearrange your saloon. This situation was typified by the plight of the Dragons on Sunday afternoon. A loss would have seen them reeling in 11th position but their big victory over the Sea Eagles propelled them into 6th.
FRIDAY 22nd July 2005
FULLBACK ? C Schifcofske (Raiders) Played a pivotal role for the Raiders in a close game against Parra. His three goals and superb ball-returns set the tone for Canberra.
LEAGUE Wrap: Round 19, 15-17 July 2005
The pressure is on Matt Bowen to retain his number one spot in this year?s Leagueunlimited.com Players Awards. The Cowboys fullback is still in front on 19 points, but Broncos? five eighth Darren Lockyer has thrown down the gauntlet and is now only one point behind on 18 points.
WITH all the upset action from last round and player movements during the week, League fans and punters around the globe have maintained the enthusiasm throughout. Conversation around the water cooler has been dominated by who?s going where, Trent?s tickle on PJ, the abomination at Penrith Park and the Tiger?s chances of finally making the Top 8.
FRIDAY, 15th July 2005
A huge round of upsets this week sees some interesting selections from our trusted live score updaters who have a keen eye on every game of the week. There?s absolutely no doubt that every player here is worthy of selection this time round, making the Round 18 League Unlimited Team of the Week the only side running around in the NRL that is a sure thing to take the two points home.
LEAGUE Wrap: Round 18, 8-10 July 2005
Back rowers Nathan Hindmarsh (Eels) and Ben Kennedy (Sea Eagles), and half back Stacey Jones (Warriors) are the big movers in this week?s Leagueunlimited.com Player Awards. All three players have made an impression and are within striking distance of the competition front runners.
THIS week?s sheet has some classy names on it even though 33 rep players were stood down for Origin III this coming Wednesday night. ?TBA? passed his fitness test but failed to raise the eye of our Live Updaters during his cameo, apart from the little 35m dash up-field. So here we give you the Round 17 League Unlimited Team of the Week which would take more stopping than a player manager before June 30.
