Throw in a glossy (in colour) Rugby League Review and Entrance & parking right up against the Oval....for only $10...great value
2000?? You are kidding aren't you?? Henson NEVER pulls a crowd of less than 9000 according to the ground announcer.

What a great day at Henson Park. Although would have preferred a better result :cry: Hopefully we will have Schirnack, Gower and Hanbury back this week. It seems to me when Lewis fires up the team go so much better. He had a shocker on the weekend so lets hope he's on his game this weekend. Would be great to get Parata back but not holding my breath.

As far as I know Carr could have played but he has had a hamstring niggle that was better rested for the finals

Big Al could have played if needed but has had a calf strain and playe the night before.

Makaui was given a shot as he is too old for 20's next year and the coach wanted to see what he had to offer

White was benched. I would hope it was previous performance that dictated this.

I don't really have much of a match report. it was a very frustrating game from a BRET point of view. We should have locked it up and went on with it. But thats the way things go. That and Henson, whilst being a great atmosphere, is a dog of a ground to really watch football at.

I would have to agree. Great atmosphere but compared to Leichhardt the action is a long, long way away.
