Re: Viking Clap - Mark II - Viking Row

I don't mind it. Mind you, I'm still waiting for a response to this idea from 2016 ... To build a bit of interest around each weekend's game, what about the first grade squad starts a "tradition" of a light bridge to bridge run around Lake Burley Griffin on the Thursday or Friday lunch time?

Re: Jarrod Croker

Jennings has had a few great games this year no doubt. But there has also been a couple where he didn't bother turning up, literally left himself in the carpark, and subsequently re-introduced himself to the reserve grade coach.

In this case he didn't drop it, it was stripped. I agree that it would be a penalty try if he dropped it immediately after being hit in the head.

I thought that there was going to be more equity in TV game distribution once the NRL took over scheduling.

I think you are both sort of right. He went from a one trick pony to trying to become a more complete game manager, where he was also relied upon to kick and steer the team around the park. He couldn't do it and it also negatively affected Sezer's overall game. Sent from my SM-G570F using Tapatalk
