Team naming and tips

What are peoples thoughts on teams naming their full squad before a game? I believe teams should be forced to name their full squad 24-48 hours BEFORE a game and they have to stick with it. I think it's a bit unfair when you put your bets on or you are in a tipping comp, and a club like the titans turn around just before kick off and says "oh by the way, aiden seizer isn't playing". I believe some clubs do it on purpose, it could even go so far as to be used for match fixing.

Hey Guys, please be nice! @knitey - @xxvicelifexx isn't affiliated with rleague.com so you're best off asking us those questions. Vice is correct though, the previous owners of rleague did have a whole section called 'rleaguebetting' which had about 30,000 hits a month. It was a part of the site, BUT we do understand that it's not the right approach to be overboard with gambling so so we'll keep this information available, but not as heavy as you see it now.

It's worth noting that all major rugby league websites have some sort of gamlbing content, such as http://www.nrl.com/TelstraPremiership/MatchCentre/tabid/10999/Default.aspx#matchid=3326&tab=Teams

We actually removed the whole category in the forum which was called 'betting', but you may not have noticed this. Just now we've been approved by Google to show some other advertising which is non-gambling which means we can sort some of this out shortly.

@Stathpine.......what has that got to do with the question....."Is this now a gambling site"?

A simple question...pls answer honestly...if possible

Ah..so the main focus is now on gambling....on footy.....that makes it a gambling site.

@knitey, the main focus for rleague.com is rugby league! I hope you will see that in time.

Lets hope the punters paradise members realise that too and talk footy and not turn everything into gambling related discussions.

I agree MrChook - footy should always be the focus.

Back on the team lists, the naming of teams early in the week is redundant. Not sure why this still occurs 
MrChook

Agree sludge. Its pointless that official team lists need to be in by Tuesday. Its obvious coaches love to play the smoke and mirrors game and have their run on side already planned which differs from the tesam named.

Brian Smith was an expert at it. I am sure it was what made the NRL introduce the 1 hour before kickoff rule. I remember a game when he was the parra coach he made like 9 changes or something lol

The teams that play on Monday haven't even had time to assess their injuries. While it is the club's prerogative to name the team as they want to, it is annoying naming players they know are no chance of playing.

I guess its to give them a chance to prove their fitness.

Yeah, absolutely no problem if they are even 1% chance

I recall the 1 hour before kickoff rule coming in over an incident which involved Hindmarsh. My memory is a bit vague on the incident but it might have been against the Dragons and Hindy was under some sort of injury cloud and wasn't named as playing but when the teams ran out he was in the side.

I am sure it was in before that. I thought it was in as far back as 2003 or so.

Mark Gasnier made his first grade debut after playing lower grades. (I think that was the case)
