A full wrap of the day's important NRL Fantasy news that could impact your Fantasy selections.
- Young Newcastle forward Joseph Tapine (2RF, $269,000) has pushed through a late move to the nation's capital on a four-year deal commencing in 2016.

But don't rush to get his replacement the opening round – the NSW Origin prop will be back for Round 2. Read more.
