One thought on “NRL Teams Round 23 2008”

  1. Poor titans, at one stage they were top of the table and looked like top contenders for the title, now they are struggling to stay in 13th position, i’d like to see how Melbourne do with 9 injured players. The Titans will be top contenders next year full force!
