Re: 2019 Rd 25 V Warriors: Game Day

This was my first game this year thanks to weekend work, drove from Sydney, looking forward to seeing Bateman and CNK and a rollicking victory. I'm a bit dirty on the selections.

Re: Croker's kicking

I've lost confidence in his kicking this year and I'm quite the poso. I think the idea of handing it off to Sezer when it's not working is worthwhile.

Re: 2019 Rd 24 V Sharks: Game Day

I reckon it's a fair call. Sia offloads then Papa comes from left to right, running around the back of Sia causing Prior to change direction to make the tackle. It's an old fashioned shepherd.

Re: Joey Leilua out for the year?

I had bulging and fragmented discs at c5 c6 and c7. No fun at all. Luckily, due to the inadequacies of rural health care, by the time I got to see a specialist 6 months later, I was getting better and didn't need an operation.

Sheesh - I stop in at a pub in Mandurama to watch the game as they have massive Fox Sports sign on the exterior. Just asked the barmaid to change channels having already told the owner I wanted to watch the footy if that was OK. I've ordered lunch. They don't have Fox. Spewin'.

Hey GE, I stayed at Greenmount when I was a nipper too. Can't say I recall the spiders but I do recall the jukebox on the stairs. I absolutely hammered Ernie's "Rubber Duckie" (I was maybe six) until a posse was formed to make me stop.
