Each week during the Intrust Super Cup, Matt Crowhurst will give his verdict on the main points to come out of the competition.
Four Pointers – Round 8
RIP MIKE HIGGINSON
Saddened to hear of the passing of friend and former colleague Mike Higgison this morning. Mike was one of the worlds genuinely nice guys and taught me more about the game than I can explain.
UNDENIABLE SELECTION FOR QLD RESIDENTS
Who is the forward, from north of the Noosa River, who is steadily forcing his way into QLD residents contention? He wasn’t on our radar a month ago, however a string of more than solid performances have been grabbing the selectors attention and his selection is now bordering on undeniable.
HOPE FOR US ALL
How good was it to see a 35-year-old out there strutting his stuff in the ISC last weekend and not just strutting it, but scoring a try to help his team get the win. Maybe there is hope for us all?
THE ONES WE LOVE TO HATE
Rugby league fans love to hate player managers, they are ‘blood sucking leeches’, ‘liars and cheats’ we’ve heard it all. If you have enjoyed watching the likes of Tweed Heads Seagulls dynamic duo Lindon and Brayden McGrady in action it is worth remembering that it is made possible by a manager, out there working tirelessly to find opportunities for his young charges. It is also worth remembering that no one gets rich managing ISC players. You do it because you love being involved in the game and love helping these guys live their dreams.
