Indeed the 23-man squad for Sunday’s hit out against the New Zealand Warriors at Rotorua International Stadium is only missing Matt Eisenhuth because of a foot injury.

On the weekend they wrapped up a first innings victory over Penrith at Howell Oval. The win pushed the Ghosts to 10th place on the ladder, just seven points away from a finals spot. There are two rounds remaining, but potentially there will be 18 premiership points up for grabs, so the… Read more »

Wests Tigers hit rock bottom

It had to be. Rock bottom. After the week in hell. And so it was. In the deep north of Australia. More than 2,000 kilometres from Balmain. Even more from Campbelltown. About 50 more, give or take. It was 20-0 after 20 minutes, but most Wests fans would have believedRead more »
