Re: Preliminary Final tickets

Any tips on possible bus stops on the way in from Sydney. What are the buses like getting out of the stadium is it likely to be quicker to catch a bus out to my car? I need to get back on the road as quickly as possible to get the family home. Get it from Gungahlin, that's the furthest north and yo...

Re: Preliminary Final tickets

Its going to be absolute gridlock getting in and out of the stadium. Get there early. Sent from my SM-G570F using Tapatalk Yep, sister and I agreed no later than the 6:15 bus. They're running a bus from Gungahlin at 7:15 (the last bus leaving for the game). No way is that one going to make kickoff ...

Frankly, I don't understand why GF tickets go on sale so early anyway. Or why they don't reverse it - a limited number in July/August, then the bulk as soon as we know. They'd still sell it out.

Re: 2019 Preliminary Final V Rabbitohs: Teams and Previews

We lost to them earlier this year when Bateman, Sezer and BJ weren't playing. But we won't take them lightly. Importantly, the only reason we lost is because a Souths player managed to pull the ball out of Croker's hands when he was a certainty to score...and then the ref screwed up the call and sa...

Yeah, let's not get too cocky, though admittedly it's hard after that garbage. Hopefully Sticky keeps the boys level this week.

One thing missing Hong Kong Raider - get Horse up in Burgess' face, he'll lose his **** and hopefully get himself binned for repeated penalties.

I feel bad for them, but they weren't going to crack first grade again.

I do even a little worse for Ata, though. We misused him terribly during that weird period where Sticky was trying to turn halves into hookers.
