One of the qualities good rugby league judges often say you can never put a price on? Speed. And by all reports Eels young gun Dylan Brown has it in spades.
The story that made us sit up and take notice was when Parramatta coach Brad Arthur talked up the day Bevan French made a break at training.
The 18-year-old NRL rookie Brown not only ran him down and but also bundled him into touch.
Every game of every round of the 2019 NRL Premiership LIVE with no ad-breaks during play. Get it all on Foxtel.
The other great indicators for Brown are the fact he can tackle like a back-rower and loves taking the line on.
There’s good reason for genuine excitement about the NRL debut of this teenager.

BIRD FLYING BACK INTO FORM
THE Brisbane Broncos have essentially got a new recruit in one-time NSW Origin utility Jack Bird.
Forget last season, judge Bird on what he produces over the next 12 months.
The Broncos have confirmed Bird has stripped off 7kgs over the summer with the 2016 grand final winner completing every minute of every session in pre-season.
The other good news? No issues with his shoulder reconstruction and his fractured sternum is completely healed.
INGLIS READY TO ROCK AGAINST LATRELL
GREG Inglis didn’t appear like he was in any doubt for Friday night’s grudge match against the Sydney Roosters during South Sydney training at Redfern on Monday.
And the Bunnies right-edge had a lethal look about it. Sam Burgess, Adam Reynolds, Inglis and Dane Gagai is an all-star representative line-up.
Still at Redfern, we were surprised to see the Rabbitohs engage in a full-field game of AFL for about ten minutes during training.
With supercoach Wayne Bennett playing the role of umpire, the Bunnies took to running around the Melbourne-way of going just to break up an opposed session.
KEARY READY FOR BLUES CALL-UP
THE evolution of Luke Keary was one of the best football narratives of last season.
And his Sydney Roosters halves partner Cooper Cronk believes Keary now has the perfect temperament to make the transition into State of Origin football.
Aside from winning the Clive Churchill Medal, Keary also made his Test debut for Australia at the back end of last year.
Origin is now the playmaker’s final frontier and grand final hero Cronk is adamant Keary will handle the furnace that is Origin football.
COWBOYS RISE ABOVE THE FLOOD
THE Cowboys continue to prove they are one of the most resilient clubs in Australian sport. Winger Nene MacDonald was recently forced to spend time living in a caravan park when the floods swept through Townsville.
Other players Gavin Cooper, Jake Granville and Kurt Baptiste were also badly hit and have been forced into temporary accommodation.
In total including some of the Cowboys staff members the club had 13 families affected.
In true country fashion, you won’t catch them whinging or looking to use it as any sort of excuse.
STORM ON THE MARKET
MELBOURNE Storm chairman Bart Campbell has confirmed the club is continuing to explore selling a percentage of the club to its fans, similar to the model used by the Green Bay Packers in the NFL.
Campbell confirmed to Fox Sports the owners of the club had also discussed selling the Storm to alternate private investors last December.
But the owners – Campbell, Matthew Tripp and Gerry Ryan – have decided against this and are instead continuing to seek interest among fans and members.
Campbell said more than 8000 Storm supporters have registered interest in learning more about becoming share holders in the club.
In the NFL, the Green Bay Packers have more than 361,000 members. The Melbourne Storm currently has 25,000 members with the club outlining an ambition to double that to 50,000 by the end of 2023.
Love Island’s Jack Fincham shows off body transformation – Entertainment News from Xposé – Virgin Media Television – virginmediatelevision.ie
20th May 19 | Entertainment News
The reality TV star said he wanted to get healthy.
Love Island’s Jack Fincham said he is feeling “strong and healthy” as he showed off his recent weight loss in a series of dramatic before and after pictures.
The reality TV star said he did not care that he didn’t share the same honed physique as many of his fellow Love Islanders but decided to embark on a new diet and fitness regime to be more healthy.
“For me, getting fit was about getting healthy, it wasn’t really about the way I looked,” he said.
“I was never bothered that I didn’t have the ribbed abs like the other lads on Love Island but I was bothered when doctors told me I was clinically obese.”
The star – who split from his Love Island girlfriend Dani Dyer in April – said he feels “strong and healthy in both my body and my mind” after losing more than two stone.
Discussing whether he was now getting more female attention, Fincham said: “To be honest I haven’t paid much attention!
“I’ve got a bit more I suppose and people have complimented me on my transformation.
“I’ve just been focused on feeling strong and continuing my training.”
– Fincham has partnered with Protein World, using the four-week Slender Plan.

Look At Eddie Hall’s Insane Body Transformation Over The Past Two Years – BarBend
Professional strongman Eddie Hall just uploaded a before and after photo highlighting his weight loss journey that has taken place over the last two years. After dropping nearly 70 pounds and a considerable amount of body fat, the 2017 World’s Strongest Man is now discussing just how much it took to maintain his 2017 physique and how tough it was on his body at the time.
In Hall’s Instagram photo’s description he wrote, “What a difference a couple of years can make on the left around 196kg / 31.5stone and on the right around 165kg / 26stone. Both I’m very proud of but my insides are thanking me for losing the weight and getting fit again for sure now!!! How did I do it????”
His transformation is really impressive, especially given how much muscle he’s maintained, and it’s something that has had the media’s attention for quite some time — there were even rumors he was photoshopping his new body, rumors he swiftly denied.
In 2018, Hall was averaging losing around two pounds per week and weighed in around 164 kilograms, or 361.5 pounds. This was 70 pounds, or more than 31 kilos lighter than when he won the World’s Strongest Man in 2017. And while he is weighing in almost exactly the same now, a year later, he looks more defined, and comfortably lean.
When Hall was his heaviest, he weighed 433 pounds. Last year, during his weight loss journey he said “Jeeze I wouldn’t wish that torture upon anyone.” Hall didn’t just need to lose weight for health reasons, he also wanted to. He’s been actively promoting a healthy lifestyle through his various social media channels.
In an interview with Express that he gave two months ago, he went into more detail on the toll his weight took on him.
I knew that I was pushing the boundaries. I knew that I was basically risking my life with all the health factors – it’s very unhealthy being that big. So, I decided to take a step down from that sort of professional side of strongman. To lose a load of body weight, get fit, get healthy, and basically I just jiggled by diet around.
He also added that at the time he had basically cut out all carbs, following an “all-protein, all-fat” diet that he was combining with five or six hours of cardio per week comprised of boxing, swimming, and cycling.
“I feel really good at this weight,” he told Express. “I’ve got a six pack and I’m quite happy to stay at this, until I get a bit older [in his late 40s and 50s], when maybe I’ll have to reduce the weight a little bit more.”
He also posted a video this spring where he discussed his own battles with mental health, and what he has done to overcome his personal struggles. Here’s an anecdote at 20 minutes into his video where he talks about three little words that have shaped him.
“The only thing that got me through life was goal setting, that’s whats got me through so far. Sink or swim, those three little words can make such a big difference in people’s lives. Sink and dwell and hate the world and blame everyone else, or you swim, you set goals, you move forward and you do great things in life.”
Sink or swim, Hall chose to swim. We’re looking forward to seeing how his physique and performance progress.

Cashing in: Since starring on last year’s season of Love Island Australia, Grant often promotes fitness-related products online
Since starring on last year’s season of Love Island Australia, Grant has landed a number of fitness endorsement deals.
He regularly takes to Instagram to plug protein powders and hair removal products.
In October last year, it was exclusively revealed by Daily Mail Australia that Grant was trying to cash-in on his newfound fame and impressive physique.
Despite splitting the $50,000 cash prize won on Love Island with Tayla Damir, a source close to Grant revealed he was trying to turn his fame into cold hard cash.
‘He’s available to do everything and almost anything – only catch it has to be legal,’ the source said at the time.
Looking to the future: Grant found love with Tayla Damir on Love Island, but has since rekindled a romance with ex Lucy Cartwright (pictured)
