Two new Immortals get named tonight.

Dally Messenger is surely a lock (given that they changed the rules to allow those from his era to become an Immortal).

Other than that, the second will probably be one of Mal Meninga, Norm Provan and Darren Lockyer.

Norm Provan and Mal Meninga have joined Dally Messenger, Frank Burge and Dave Brown as the next five rugby league Immortals.

Nice move by the NRL to get a bunch of the pre-war guys in there.

My sentiments exactly, Q. Probably should have been the 1st Immortal. And similar with Dave Brown if my reading of his freakish exploits is anything to go by.

Don't know much about Frank Burge but.

The original Immortals (back in 1981) were limited to players that the selectors had seen which ruled out anyone pre war.

So this is really a catch up now that the rules have changed.   Pretty soon there will only be players from the 90s onwards who get nominated. The likes of Irvine and Coote have now been overlooked several times so it's hard to see how they ever get it.

Ronnie Coote of course has been immortalised in rhyming slang.

I would have gone with Dally, Dave and Churchill with the fourth spot going to anyone but Fulton.

And now I've readf k's post it seems to be moot

Nice to see Mal recognised. Most explosive player I have seen. Surely Cam Smith of all current players is a moral to be inducted

Smith is a slam dunk. Thurston and Slater likely as well.

Hehehe. Still you haven't given a presser to discuss running for political office and then pulling out in the presser.

I'm loath to LOL at the Nags for getting smacked by the Dogs, as the Drags have to play them in in Round 24. They'll probably give us a towelling.

Still, a very ordinary effort by the Broncs.

Spent all day curing a new wok for my techo centric son and his girlfriend and am currently at the pub trying to Find some value in one of the games this weekend.

Taking the "moneyball" option. Teams coming off a towelling playing teams who did it tough the week before are smokies. Hello Raiders.

Damien Cook's ankle just took the full weight of two Burgesses and Soliola in a tackle.  About 350kg in total.

Just watching Toovey on the tv talking sense (I know I lookef out the window looking for flying pigs) about suburban grounds. He then totally farked up his credibility by doubling down on junior development.

Junior development! Manly's idea of Junior development is to open a cheque book.
