FULTON PLEASED WITH SUPER LEAGUE CALL
LEAGUE SUPER FULTON
   By Brad Walter of AAP

           SYDNEY, Oct 1 AAP - Australian rugby league coach Bob Fulton
today welcomed the announcement that the Federal Court would hand
down its decision in the Super League case on Friday.
           Fulton heard the news at a photo session for the Kangaroo squad
and said his only regret was that he would be away with the team in
Papua New Guinea when the three appeal judges gave their verdict at
2.15pm.
           A key member of the Australian Rugby League's fight against News
Limited, Fulton said he was confident the original Federal Court
findings would be upheld and predicted a boon for the game.
           "It was alright last year, I didn't mind (being here)," Fulton
said.
           "There were plenty of positives to come out of it and sure the
game was split but the ARL got it back where they wanted with the
decisions handed down by Justice (James) Burchett.
           "I think it's very important for the game, I think we ended up
having a fairly successful year ... I'm not saying that because
Manly won the grand final.
           "I think the bringing back of Monday Night Football was a very
positive step for the future of the game and there were many and
varied other things that happened during the course of the year.
           "We had many upsets and the unpredictability of certain teams
... my side going down in Perth to the Western Reds and a young
Penrith side beating us.
           "All those things added flavour to what I thought was a very,
very succesful season and if the judgement comes down the way
everyone expects it to backing up the orignal decision by Justice
Burchett in relation to all the orders then I think the game will
explode."

I'm surprised that Fulton can talk at all!  When he played for
Warrington he was great but suffered a severe loss of brain cells when
playing for Australia. He became an animal more suited to being in the
Yorkshire cricket crowd.

Usually when there are explosions, innocent people get hurt!

BTW     The heart of the game is not Sydney, it is every back yard where a
child picks up a ball and runs with it. Let's not forget that there are a
LOT more players of the game who do it for the love of it, than get paid
the big bucks for doing there thing on T.V.
