How does one get 'match fit' over a 4+ month off-season in which their are no games?

Our hooker could well at some point be wearing the number of a winger, regardless of his Rankin on the list.

Actually I meant 7th or 8th

And I've never been a hooker, I found the long hours too strenuous.

Still have a better Rankin than Farah , but then again Liddle do I know

Might have a Ballin like AFL if we aren't careful and get Rowdy , someone might Sue , you gotta Lovett though

Taylor made for someone straight from the Woods like Jamal , they might be on the Hunt for a Cassell where Moses parted the seas near where the beautiful Brooks once ran

As you can see I still haven't Marstered this quite yet FG Granted , but I've had a few Bayley's tonight , so I'm feeling a bit Lolo

Did you know the LittleJohn was a character in Robin Hood , Junior did and I don't know where Eisenhuth fits in but I'm sure if I Ava few more the story will get better once the Mrs (who might need to go to the Wesley for more surgery ) has Mr Sheened Jacob's room and finally found Teddy with her Walker

I've meant to tell Watto that Aloiai isn't how you spell Aioli , but we can't just keep Chris crossing the same points can we Pottering around in circles like Pecker heads

Any way hope we have a good leader at the Wheelhouse this season or this season will be the Year of the Cox

What bong have you been on? Mullumbimby Madness - are you passing it around. Russell is always too serious.

Come down when a WT game is on and can introduce to real life ex-Newtown first grader, he began at Leichhardt Wanderers. Also that ex-aust boxing champ as well.

Good effort Happy. My intent was just to get Jordan's name in and a few angry hearts racing as they again contemplated seeing him at dummy half. It was unusual, but he did the job there when requested.

Sorry Dan

Won't be surprised if this isn't a smokescreen , even Ballin off the bench for 40 minutes might be an answer if we do have an issue

Ballin has to follow medical staff protocol, I'm cool with that and no point in giving him an undeserved hard time...

And so we have MM, who was signed for this very occasion. No world beater but would much rather he be wearing the 9 than ET or someone else playing out of position.

Let's just get on with it, I don't see what the fuss is about, this sort of thing happens.
Could be that some just like grinding axes.
I'll freely admit I have an axe to grind. The club signed a 32-year-old hooker with an ACL injury to hasten the exit of the incumbent. It doesn't matter what you think of Farah, that was a lousy signing. Anyone who claims to be surprised that Ballin is barely going to get on the field over the duration of a two year deal is either lying or stupid.

Yeah that's right mate. Ballin has been fit for 1.1 out of 24 games of his contract so far, what reason could we possibly have for thinking this man of steel is injured now. :crazy

Hard to follow your logic with the word barely and the two years, as based on medical opinion the club rightly expected half a season on the field last year. The club has taken leaps and bounds in the medical and rehab areas over the past couple of years, so I trust their judgment.
