NRL Round 18 - Post Round Mud Rake!

The big signing news this week is Mark Gasnier agreeing to terms with Stade Francais in a two year one million dollar deal. And because he will be playing in France by the time the World Cup arrives in Australia, he has played his last game for the Kangaroos. This leaves the NRL in the lurch a little, after using Gasnier as the face of Australian Rugby League in a million dollar advertising campaign to promote the World Cup. Another less high profile signing this week has been Fitzgibbon extending his contract with the Rooster for another year.
