A very special episode this week as Moneyball host Ted chats to a real NRL CEO - the Panthers own Corey Payne.

All of us who play the game dream about it and pretend our rosters are important, but none of us could comprehend the stress of being in the top job for real. 

In the chat Corey discusses how he got involved in club administration, how to balance a roster and Ted puts him on the spot and asks who he would draft first if every player in the NRL was available, which is a situation we as NRLCEOs face each year. Suprisingly, it's not a Panther! 

As well as the interview, Ted is also joined by Jacko and Marcho to finish off the debate about the best NRLCEO players in each position. This week they discuss the props, hookers and back rowers. As always, each position is hotly debated.
