It will be interesting to see what some people say if we win.

"ordinary team (again)"

"If Thurston plays we lose" etc. etc.


Ho hum.

A win this weekend will generate 100 pages of disclaimers.

It's going to be an entertaining read Sunday night, win or lose. Get the popcorn ready.

That won't come from me. We aren't an ordinary team. We are a good team. We can beat the Cowgirls.

We'd definitely though be a better team if Robbie was there. We'd can also tweak the team a little more by improving on Rankin and probably Lovett on the bench.

This is not hating on Rankin and Lovett either. I think Rankin has been a lot better than what I thought he would be over the last couple of weeks and Lovett has improved a lot this year.

He didn't play last year and we couldn't beat them ... Although we were playing Taylorball that night.

I think it's an even loss. We have Brooks and Robbie out. I reckon that is pretty fair. I think what JT is doing is that he is stating we have such a good squad we don't even need Robbie playing to beat one of the top teams in the comp.

Taylorball is losing footy. You can't compare us playing positive footy to us playing Taylorball. It's a massive difference.

It's a tough ask this week, but playing at 'the old girl' and a big home crowd should hopefully lift the side and they can push the cows all the way. Would have preferred JAC on the wing over Rankin, but hopefully he has a better game than last week. Woods and Sue will be keen to rip into Tamou and Scott. Should be a cracker of a game hopefully.

Is JAC in the top 25? If not he can't be picked.

No surprises, unfortunately lets stick to JTs masterplan.The main thing in our favour is the fact its at home.Having said that i hope its standing room only and a win to the good guys,Go WT

It might be me, but I just don't get the "JTs Masterplan" reference in a lot of posts.
After all he has our boys sitting on the cusp of Finals Footy.
So what do we want from the rest of this year?
The players are not looking at whats happened so far this year?
I somehow think they are focusing on whats coming up & that they are still alive in 2016.
All coaches have a masterplan that's what coaching is about.
All i'm saying is lets get behind everyone at the club while we still have a chance in 2016 & when/if we do miss the finals Unleash Hell if that's your choice
Until then lets stand together at Leichardt on Sunday after all days like this are what footies about :supporter:

Stop trying to remember it correctly and instead try to erase it from your memory, it was awful.

Most of the fans were playing with their mobile telephones instead of watching the game.
