Rugby League Week - - Scoreboard -

I won’t be sad to see the back of Ben Barba. He’s a great player and a delight to watch on the field, but his de­fec­tion to union when all he had to do was wait six months be­fore re­join­ing his mates at Cronulla shows he’s too self­cen­tred to be a true team man.

Be­sides, I reckon this will ac­tu­ally be good for the Sharks be­cause it’ll free up money so they can keep Wade Gra­ham, Jack Bird and Valen­tine Holmes, and I rate all three of them above Ben, es­pe­cially when it comes to staying out of trou­ble! And it’s the safest bet in footy that Holmes will kill it at full­back this year. The only thing that will stop that from hap­pen­ing is if he gets in­jured — touch wood! JEFF MAY, VIA EMAIL
