LION FOUNDATION NJC ROUND 3 FIXTURES
A fantastic opening round of NRL footy for 2004 and Leagueunlimited.com was there with live updates of every match.
CRONULLA Sharks coach Stuart Raper has named a strong side to get the Sharks season back on track when they take on the high flying Bulldogs at the Sydney Show grounds this weekend.
The team is;
PARRAMATA coach Brian Smith has named a strong line up to play the Brisbane Broncos at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane on Sunday afternoon.
SOUTH Sydney has been rocked by news that star recruit Terry Hill has been forced out of the game due to a knee injury.
WARRIORS coach, Daniel Anderson has made three changes to the Warriors side for this weekend's NRL clash against the Dragons in Auckland.
CENTRE Lee Hookey and prop Luke Stuart are both set to make their 100th First Grade appearance this weekend against the Tigers.
SYDNEY Roosters hooker Craig Wing could be out for the rest of the season after suffering a leg injury during the club's sloppy win over South Sydney at Aussie Stadium last night.
AMOS Roberts is expected to play first grade for Penrith against the Canberra Raiders on Friday night after Brett Howland suffered a leg injury during the Panthers' 20-14 loss to Newcastle at the weekend.
BROKEN arm or not, New Zealand Warriors captain Monty Betham is unlikely to play football for at least the next five weeks.
THE Dragons have crashed to a record fifth consecutive loss at Oki Jubilee Stadium against Canberra today(14/3/2004). The Raiders were triumphant by 21-12 in front of an 'official' crowd of 12,635 that realistically looked between 14,000 and 14,500.
IT was a case of same old, same old for Cronulla fans this weekend. Lulled into a false sense of optimism by sweeping off-season changes to the team?s structure, the Sharks imploded against a gritty Tigers team in a game that could be summarised as simply being scrappy. If Cronulla don?t learn a thing or two about attacking in the next week, they could very easily cop a walloping by the slick looking Bulldogs in round two.
PARRAMATTA Eels centre Jamie Lyon is out of football indefinitely after being granted time off by club officials today.
NEW Zealand Warriors' coach Daniel Anderson has a familiar puzzle to solve after the Monty Betham National Rugby League (NRL) injury saga took another twist during the Brisbane Broncos 28-20 victory at Suncorp Stadium yesterday.
