They've only gone and done it again, the Leeds Rhinos won their eighth Super League title by beating Castleford Tigers in the 2017 Grand Final.

A sold-out Old Trafford saw arguably Castleford's worst performance of the season on the biggest stage the club has ever been on, they lost to Leeds by 24-6. With the news coming out days before the game that Zak Hardaker had been suspended, we now know why he was, how much of an impact was it not having him in the Tigers lineup?

Leeds Rhinos sent two of their modern-day greats off with one more Super League champion ring. A masterclass from McGuire saw him win the Harry Sunderland award being the man of the match in a unanimous vote - so why are Rhinos letting him go?

Zak Hardaker has been provisionally banned from all competitions after testing positive for a banned substance, ruling him out of the England squad which has now been announced for the World Cup. Is it truly Wayne's way or no way? Wayne Bennett has confirmed his 24-man squad for the tournament in Australia and it's fair to say it has raised a few eyebrows in the rugby league community.

Just a few big issues to discuss then with Mark Wilson joined by Phil Caplan and RL Hall of Famer Garry Schofield.
