The NRL continues demonstrate consistency in a couple of key areas: random losses by fancied teams and coaches getting the knife.
The fact that both Easts and Paramatta lost last weekend is pretty moot, because they’ll probably play a grand final later this year. Somewhere. Sometime.
And I reckon Paul Green has a pretty fair idea of where he should be looking for a house to live next year as well.
The AFL is just about ready to embark on a plan where they set up one non-stop game and just cycle the eighteen different teams on and off the field for the required number of quarters until their contractual obligations are fulfilled. Or something like that.
