SILLY season is upon and all the attention has shifted from the actual games to who’s playing where next season and I must admit the level excitement is a good thing for the game.
FRIDAY 2nd July 2004
THE weekly column here at Leagueunlimited is to highlight what we here on the site think are the best players in each round of the 2004 NRL competition.
Based on the opinion received from the Leagueunlimited.com live updaters, we have put together what we think is the team of the Round 16.
THE Leagueunlimited.com leader board has suddenly become very congested with Nathan Hindmarsh (Eels), Brett Kimmorley (Sharks) and Paul Rauhihi (Cowboys) all equal front runners on 17 points. Rauhihi has been outstanding form in recent weeks and picked up another two points on the weekend.
