    Oh wait, that was Mark Gasnier.


    Have a feeling Lote will go back to League. It'd be a shame to lose him simply as the Tahs are already short on wing options. In terms of the bigger picture, the Wallabies and the cash it frees up for the ARU, it's probably a good thing.

    or not......


    THE Australian Rugby Union's bid to force Wallabies winger Lote Tuqiri into meeting a deadline of 5pm today to decide on their latest contractual offer has hit an embarrassing snag with revelations that it contravenes the players' association agreement.

    Chuck Norris has the greatest Poker-Face of all time. He won the 1983 World Series of Poker, despite holding only a Joker, a Get out of Jail Free Monopoly card, a 2 of clubs, 7 of spades and a green #4 card from the game Uno.

    RUPAs since said they're comfortable with the deadline due to the amount of history, but where they would stand on the issue if Lote decided to claim right and delay would be interesting. I think he'll sign - if he doesn't and the ARU stands firm, watch the NRL offers magically shrink.
