First Rooters scandal of the season
So, the Sydney Rooters have been given two byes next season, both of which fall conveniently in the weeks before the two State of Origin matches. That's a bit presumptuous on the part of the ARL, I mean, NRL, isn't it? Why don't they just name the Origin teams now? Of course, they will say that it was pure coincidence that the byes are at rather conveninent times. Arse.
