Western Force announce major signing of Tevita Kuridrani

  Western Force announce major signing of Tevita Kuridrani Tevita Kuridrani has left the Brumbies to head to Perth to join the Western Force for the 2021 season. Fresh off winning the Super Rugby AU title on Saturday, the veteran outside centre will link up with the Perth-based franchise for the next domestic rugby season. Kuridrani has been a Wallabies regular since his debut in 2013 but was a surprise omission from Dave Rennie’s 44-man squad for the 2020 Bledisloe Cup and Rugby Championship on the back of a season in which he was below his best. Still, at 29 years old he still has plenty of rugby left in him, and produced his best game of Super Rugby AU in the final.

The 2018 NRL competition will be adjudicated in accordance with the current ‘ Rugby League Laws of the Game, International level, approved by the Australian Rugby League Commission’ with specific interpretations for NRL . Methods that impede the immediate release of the player in possession.

Cronulla legend Paul Gallen has unloaded on the NRL after it was revealed an experimental rule banning backs from packing down in scrums will be trialled in two Round 20 fixtures.

The governing body on Tuesday announced it will use Thursday’s derby between the Broncos and Cowboys and Friday’s Warriors-Sea Eagles fixture to test drive four experimental rules.

Neither game will have any bearing on the 2020 finals series.

The experiment will feature the ‘Six-Again’ rule used for 10 metre infringements, a change to the way the Bunker reviews tries and handovers awarded for kicks into touch rather than scrums.

The final change requires that only ‘nominated forwards’ participate in scrums, banning backs from packing down as has become standard practice in recent years.

A fired-up Gallen took aim at the governing body over the decision to ban backs from scrums, declaring the move denies the attacking team an opportunity to exploit a potential weakness in their opponents.

“Ridiculous, what are we playing, under-6s?” Gallen told Wide World of Sports Radio.

“Are we playing under 6’s and trying to look after the half-back not having to tackle a front-rower?

“Seriously, if’ you’ve got a bloke like (Brisbane Broncos forward) David Fifita, of course you’re going to put him one-on-one with a half-back, why wouldn’t you?

“If you’re 10m out from the (tryline) and you’ve got David Fifita up against, who’s an ordinary defender?

“I’m not even going to name an ordinary defender, but a half-back, why wouldn’t you put him one-on-one and give him a crack.

“We’re not playing under-6s trying to look after these blokes, that is ridiculous.”

Final chance for Broncos to avoid wooden spoon in Queensland derby mockbuster .
The last time the Brisbane Broncos and North Queensland Cowboys played this late into a calendar year they were preparing for the first-ever all-Queensland NRL grand final. That came in 2015 when, two and a half months after Queensland thrashed New South Wales by a record 52-6 in the third State of Origin game at Suncorp Stadium, the two clubs hammered the final nails into the Blues coffin by setting up the decider on neutral territory. History will tell us that the Cowboys would win their first-ever premiership after Johnathan Thurston booted the title-winning field goal three and a half minutes into extra time.
