NRL counts the cost of players not able to participate in this round due to State of Origin fatigue (how anyone who participated in that game can back up three or four days later is beyond comprehension), of more concern are injuries which are longer term considerations. Although it looks like more coaches have fallen by the wayside this week than players.
AFL is carrying out the battle for eighth place in the eight, while some of the leading teams have mid-year stumbles. Weirdly the sure things were the wrong things last week.
