I knew wed draw the Broncos

Prince & Benji

Can’t wait to see Prince and Benji together again

If Taylor actually sent his best players we would be a real chance, blokes like Moses and Teddy would have a day out, but I understand why he would leave them in cotton wool at home.

Although a strong showing would help confidence and any money our mob can jag would be a massive bonus

And we face JAC as well

We got dis…

I wonder if this is the year we take it seriously…

I doubt it, but hopefully. It is becoming a bigger competition every year but I feel like we’re a team who’ll jump on the bandwagon when it’s too late… Wait for 90% of the comp to take it seriously and then jump on board.

By not wearing the tank tops like last year. It just looked silly IMO.

I am surprised that they didn’t put rabbits in our group

That would’ve been
Storm: JAC
Broncos: Prince & Benji
Rabbits: Taylor vs Farah

But if we want to be successful in the nines we need to play 3 of our back 7
I suggest Idris, Brooks, and 1 more

I agree. The squads taylor has sent so far have been very disappointing.

I’d like to see Brooks, Heleta, Papenhuyzen, Marsters, Chee Kam and Liddle all included in the squad.

Its a Catch 22 situation though

If a Moses ,Tedesco ,Liddle got a season ending injury the Taylor haters would tar and feather him

A win or finals appearance could be a massive boost to the season and really give the squad some confidence

Do you take the risk and go with a full strength squad ??

Farah won’t be playing.

Probably the best draw we could have hoped for.
