Child Progidies

IT seems like teenage sensations are all the rage in the NRL right now. Sonny-Bill, Benji, Karmichael- all big names, and all just out of school (and all Kiwis, but that?s another story). Will today?s youngsters be tomorrow?s superstars? A look back at rugby league Macauley Culkins from years gone by tells an interesting story.

Forum Sevens: Life begins at 30

SCOTT Sattler must be the most popular man in the retirement home. I can only guess that he bought himself a supercharged walking stick- how could the old man have caught Rooster?s winger Todd Byrne in one of the great grand-final tackles on Sunday?

Forum Sevens: 2003 Warriors- second year syndrome?

MOST sports fans know the clich? of the brilliant rookie who is unable to repeat the heroics of his debut season in his sophomore year.

Forum Sevens: The problem with New Zealand rugby league

SOME fans would say that New Zealand rugby league is currently enjoying a boom period. There was huge media and public interest when the Warriors reached the NRL grand final in 2002, and now that the Warriors look likely to again make the top 8 (for the third consecutive year), New Zealand rugby league fans have a competitive side to watch week in, week out, in the world?s best rugby league competition. Surely this is what the fans and administrators hoped for when the Warriors played their first game in 1995.
