Captain Darius Boyd and recently retired legend Corey Parker will join international Sam Thaiday and CEO Paul White at a dinner at SkyCity Darwin on Saturday May 20. The players will give their thoughts on Wayne Bennetts Broncos galloping north NRL heavyweights heading to the Top End for Q&A ambition to take the team to the 2017 grand final in a question and answer format. The night will raise money for local junior rugby league. Brisbanes event co-ordinator Sophia Ward said it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Top End league fans. We got massive interest when we went to Perth last year. The main reason for our trip to Darwin is to bring the Broncos to fans that may not have direct access, she said. Brisbane supporters will be able to interact directly with the stars, Ward said. This is one of the best events where you have access to players, she said. We have three breaks in the evening where they are up signing things and getting photos, while chatting to local business who buy tables. If Im lucky I might even get Sam Thaiday selling raffle tickets. Other than coming to training, this is the best access you can have to such a high standard of players. Tickets are $140 per person or $1,300 per table of 10. It is an 18+ event. JACK HISLOP Broncos Sam Thaiday is one of several players visiting Darwin the AFL had the perfect solution with their restricted and unrestricted free agency system. The AFL opened a Pandoras box. They will start having a few problems with that, Bennett said. They are starting to get disgruntled down there, particularly fans who have a long history of loyalty with players. But players are starting to realise there is more money somewhere else. Gould made the NRL draft call this week, claiming players and their managers were holding clubs to ransom by driving up asking prices. Brisbane coach Wayne Bennett leads a training session at Red Hill Picture: JONO SEARLE A CALL for the NRL to introduce an internal draft has been shot down by Wayne Bennett despite the Brisbane coach describing the current player market as chaotic. Bennett admitted he was sick of the constant speculation about player movement driven by dozens of off contract stars. However, he believed player managers had become too powerful to allow Penrith boss Phil Goulds suggestion of an NRL draft to happen. He also cited the Federal Courts 1991 ruling that a draft was an unreasonable restraint of trade. That wont happen unfortunately. Players and player managers have too much power, Bennett said. We had our chance 20 years ago to grab it but it was taken to court and the draft was over. It exists in the AFL because of the co-operation between them and the players association and we dont have that. Still, Bennett didnt believe Bennett: Draft wont fix chaotic system Good Friday triple treat on NRL menu ITS a feast in the NRL with three games scheduled for Good Friday. It kicks off with the annual grudger match between Canterbury and South Sydney before the Newcastle-Sydney Roosters clash and BreisbaneGold Coast encounter. The Bulldogs have been one of the most solid defensive sides this year missing the least tackles and conceding the third least linebreaks. The Rabbitohs have their tails up after knocking over Penrith last weekend. The match will also pit Souths captain up against Canterbury skipper and fellow Englishman James Graham. The Roosters insist teenage sensation Latrell Mitchell has been rested rather than dropped for the Newcastle match. In-form Knights centre Dane Gagai goes up against Mitchells replacement, Joseph Manu, who is set to play just his sixth NRL match. Brisbanes big win over the Roosters last week came at a cost with Ben Hunt (hamstring) out for eight weeks, thrusting Kodi Nikorima into the halves to face Gold Coast, who welcome back Nathan Peats and Chris McQueen. .~
