McGuire, Broncos teammate come to blows. http://goo.gl/xgrvXK.
NRL finals tensions have boiled over at Red Hill with Brisbane teammates Josh McGuire and Salesi Funaki coming to blows at training on Tuesday.
The incident was sparked by an overzealous tackle from McGuire on Funaki, a reserve-grader who has spent the year playing in the Queensland Cup for Wynnum-Manly.
McGuire had to be dragged away by teammates while other second-string Broncos, including Herman Ese’ese, tried to calm Funaki down.
It came in the middle of an intense session as Brisbane ramps up preparations for Friday night’s clash with North Queensland in Townsville, a rematch of last year’s grand final.
McGuire said afterwards there was no bad blood between the pair, describing the scuffle as a sign of how seriously the Broncos take their training.
“I turned my back on that and just walked away,” he said.
"Things do get heated at training, that’s what it’s all about.
"They’re all good now.
"That’s the way Moosey plays, he trains the way he plays.
“It does get a bit firey out there and people react different.”
The Broncos will head north after their final training session of the week on Thursday.
Good stuff, Hope Salesi put him on his arse.
180cm. Too small, if we are talking second rowers. We need some size. I’d be looking at Abraham Papalii. Roosters have second rowers coming out of their backsides, so might be a while before he get a crack at the top level

If there was any truth in this, could Wests Tigers maybe sign up the bins?
Are the faster, dynamic 80 litre bins worth their freight, or are the larger 120 litre models the way to go?
And if a bin was really that good, could we ever keep a lid on it?
Player rehab would be so easy, just screw new parts and you’re back in the game!
Would Coach Taylor simply recycle his post-match comments?
There again, if we were to lose, would the critics just call us rubbish?
And when they come back to pre-season training, all the talk would be “how have you wheelie-bin?”
These bins are more than meet the eye!
Funny stuff, tiger_one
Thought 7mate was meant to replay all the games, so far, the only game I’m seeing replayed is the England v Aus game
Australia v England 11.30pm - 2am……replay 3.30pm-6.00pm
Wales v Italy 2.00am - 4am
PNG v France 2.00am - 4.00am
New Zealand v Samoa 4.30am - 6.30am
Found these times for the first weekend. Only game I couldn’t find was the Fiji v Ireland game.
Hope they are correct !
The way Teddy is playing today in the NSW Cup Moltzen won’t be playing next week.
So far he’s scored a try, he’s been backing up his forwards and taken at least 4 offloads and we’ve scored a further 2 tries from those offloads. That not to mention the extra metres gained.
Sure is good having a fullback playing in the No 1 and not a utility.

I loved the idea of the pick the score/margins garnering additional points - That was BOSS.
means that even if you were a few games behind you still had a shot - keeps people interest from waining.
Should use the Tabsports format where you receive the Tabsports fixed odds for points. That way if you’ve got the balls to take a long shot you get rewarded with higher points. If you take the favourites every week your winning margin is less.
