THE RUSH HOUR WITH MG
It was the news that rocked the rugby league world, just 48 hours out from what is arguably the most anticipated return to footy the game has ever seen.
But as the initial shock of Bronson Xerri's provisional suspension for testing positive for a prohibited substance wore off, questions were being asked - and one question more than others.
