Re: Leipana?

How about we let them actually earn it first, Leipana occurred after they showed they were a magical combination with almost a psychic connection with their flick passes, their tandem runs from dummy half etc, who knows if Cotric and Rapana will gel even half as well.

Sorry for being that guy.

Yet it ignores the fact votes for the far right increased and got the Libs over the line through preferences. The swing to those far right groups looks to have come from previous Labor voters so they didn’t go the “cautious” Liberal option.
