Re: Are we premiership contenders?

Re: Canberra Raiders forward Ryan Sutton should be called up to Great Britain squad

To put somebody ahead of someone else without even seeing them play is an arrogant opinion, try giving it a watch to enhance your player knowledge - you might even enjoy the odd game :roflmao I've tried watching ESL. I cant do it. The game is just not very good quality. It's not enjoyable for me.
