TRANSCRIPT

With his future up in the air.

The Eels captain finally put pen to paper, ending weeks of speculation.

Clint Gutherson, Eels Captain: “I’m at that age I want a bit of security I want to settle down and try and set my life up and play some good footy and know where I am going to be playing footy.”

Gutherson’s decision to sign a new deal means he can shift his focus back to the game.

And it couldn’t have come at a better time as the Eels prepare to take on the Cowboys in Townsville.

Meanwhile, Essendon has appealed to the AFL, after an incident last week involving Dane Rampe.

The Bombers believe they would have won the game, if a free kick had been awarded following Rampe’s goal post outburst.

Rampe has been fined eleven thousand dollars for his conduct.

Patrick Dangerfield, Player’s Association President: “From an AFL Player’s perspective we think that’s fairly excessive.”

And the Queensland Reds have made just two changes ahead of their clash against New South Wales.

Former Blues playmaker Matt McGahan will make his Queensland debut at fullback.

It’s set to be a tight contest with only one point separating the teams on the ladder.

Peter Ryan, Reds Assistant Coach: “It’s a big moment for us in the game this week, it means we can either go on or we can fall by the way side.”
