The RLWC ramps up in the semi-finals, big news for the salary cap and NRL draw and a pair of backrowers boost the Eels in an action packed edition of The Tip Sheet.
Sixties and Forty20 break down the latest from England as the chase for glory across the men, women and wheelchair tournaments approaches its zenith. With Australia throwing down with New Zealand and the hosts England locking horns with Samoa, the boys look at who will make it through to the big dance.
The Eels have received a twin boost to their backrow stocks. Former Parra prospect Matt Doorey returns home on a 2-year deal and immediately enters the frame to replace Isaiah Papali’i on the right edge. The Blue & Gold have also locked up rising talent Toni Mataele until the end of 2025 and he could feature in the NRL very much sooner rather than later.
The general NRL news is dominated this week by the growing feud between young star Kurt Oloapu and the Brisbane Broncos. Sixties and Forty look at the delicate balance between player empowerment and club responsibilities and how this situation could play out.
Big news for the Eels comes in the way over a new deal with the Northern Territory as well as updates on the cap scenario heading into next year and their 2023 draw. Parramatta will be all over prime time footy next season and it starts in Round 1 as they kick the season off by hosting the Storm. The Eels’ 4-year streak inside the Top 8 will be pitted against Melbourne’s 22-year Round 1 victory streak.
Finally, Sixties caps off the show with a quick recap of the first week of preseason training!
