    It is the two players, both for the right and the wrong reasons, who have made everyone talk about the Super League.

    Israel Folau and Sonny Bill Williams have been two rugby union and league giants in the past 15 years.

    The pair only played against each other in the NRL twice and in a test game, with Folau the winner all three times.

    And given how high-profile their arrivals have been to France and Canada, they will get big bills.

    When SBW’s Toronto Wolfpack travels to Catalonia in June, the game could be moved from the Stade Gilbert Brutus of the Dragons to the iconic Stade Velodrome in Marseille, home of Olympique Marseille.

    The last time the rugby league was played there, New Zealand beat France 22-0 in 1985 at 67,394 capacity.

    The Dragons, whose stadium in Perpignan has a capacity of 11,800, drew a record Super League crowd of 31,555 to Camp Nou in Barcelona for Wigan’s visit last May.

    Warrington player Anthony Gelling was released from the club after being arrested on suspicion of being injured.

    A police statement states that “a 29-year-old man was arrested on charges of intentional injury” at a Cronton Lane Mews address in Widnes on February 8.

    A club statement read: “The Warrington Wolves can confirm that the Anthony Gelling center will not be available for selection pending a club investigation into conduct outside the club.

    “Gelling is fully conducive to investigation.

    “The club and the player will not make any further comments at this time.”

    Gelling, who hails from Auckland, spent most of his career in Wigan before spending a season in the NRL with the Warriors before returning to the UK with Widnes and then the Wolves.


    Rumors have circulated that connect the former St. George Illawarra Jai ​​Field utility to Leeds.

    Second League Expresshowever, Field is unlikely to join the rhinos soon.

    The club currently has no quota place abroad for the speedster, however this may change if Rhyse Martin’s PNG passport is processed.

    Steve Price, former chief of St. George Illawarra, gave Justin Holbrook a tip to give new life to the Titans of the Gold Coast.

    Holbrook is the third Titan boss in six years for a team that has only gotten the finals once in the past 10 years, with off-field and financial problems that have tarnished the club’s stability.

    But Warrington Price’s coach says Holbrook has the ability to lift last year’s wooden spatulas up the NRL ladder.

    “He’s a good man, he’s Justin and what he did here with St Helens last year to win the final was an extraordinary feat,” Price said.

    “It will make them play for each other and I will see the Titans making some really big improvements.”

    “What people don’t understand is that they have formed a good and solid coaching base by going through grades at home

    “He has trained reserve and under 20 for a number of years and has been assistant coach at the Gauls and Parramatta.

    “He came to the Super League somewhat unknown and was brilliant in St Helens.

    “This will put him in a good position.”

    Okay, so Rhys Williams isn’t a former NRL player, but chances are you saw him running around Wales in the 2013 and 2017 World Cup.

    You’ve also likely seen the 30-year-old Salford winger go viral on your newsfeed marking a fantastic attempt against Toronto.

    While the attempt was good enough to make the rounds, what sent him around the world is that Williams has a strange resemblance to Liverpool superstar Mo Salah.

    “It’s been a very strange few days, my phone has been on all week,” Williams said Mirror.

    “I started getting comments on Mo Salah when I grew my hair in London Broncos last year, so it’s not new. Last season I was able to hear Blake Austin in Warrington calling me Mo on the field.

    “He had diminished a little with the boys, but now he’s back up. It was fantastic for the club to get visibility from everything.”
