Well Well Well……
The Ball is 2 from 3 and so are the Tigers!
The predicted Injury clouds are well and truly over our club at the moment but…are we in the middle of a really bad storm or will this rain pass us by just as quickly as it came?
:crazy The Crystal Ball comes out of the Box…is dusted off…the traditional 45min ‘aligning of the stars’ ceremony takes place…followed by a cup of strong coffee of course… I put it on the table…lets look in!
(Definition of ‘Aligning of the Stars’ ceremony cannot be revealed due to a spiritual clause contract I signed when I bought the Ball at the Reject Shop Back in 2009!
WATCH OUT FOR APRIL FOOLS PRANKS…Can’t say I didn’t warn YOU!!!
Friday: Whilst all the talk in the media is about our injuries…the Ball can reveal that boys are focused on the task ahead, confidence is quite high. Mr Miller your time is now!
Friday Night: “Demps” once again is thinking of placing a “have a dig” type of comment on this topic will he or won’t he…The Ball predicts he will…so in true “Demps Style” he probably won’t…WE LIVE IN HOPE!
Saturday: After heading out last night you opt to buy some take away Thai for dinner whilst watching the Saturday Night games on Fox. You forget to say “Mild” when ordering CHILLI BASIL CHICKEN and a MASAMAN CURRY WITH BEEF! This could backfire as you are heading to the SFS in less than 24hours!
Sunday: A string of favourites getting up in Round 4 has us all thinking that the law of averages has an underdog getting up today…TIGERS!!!
:slight_smile: The Roosters start well but the Tigers are extremely focused today. Benji, Farah and Co. get us infront early.
We catch the Chooks off guard and attack the depleted left edge continuously …then in one swift move the Right edge gets a taste and Utai crashes over!
A defensive lapse and back to back penalties gift the Latte boys 6 points! As they are gaining confidence…we may be losing ours! HALF TIME Tigers are up 10 - 6
:bawling On cue the MASSAMAN is back with a vengeance and has you running for the mens instead of the Bar!
The second half starts and Carney is keen on destroying our defensive line with some clever attacking kicks…they work. Roosters 12-10.
After a hard period the teams smash it out and the Tigers forwards are really standing up…Galloway is playing like a Madman!
Gus goes nuts in the box as “The Rookie” & “The Master” provide the match with a moment of brilliance. Tigers are in front again and we are set for a grandstand finish…
A Roosters fan sitting behind you leans over and whispers in your ear…Remember the Semi Final last year…chokers!
His face: :slight_smile: Your Face:
See that wall up there…if you don’t turn around and get out of my face this will happen! :brick:
Now, the Ball cannot reveal who the winner is…just kidding!
This sign should say it all: :sign:
Atmosphere: 3.5 of 5 (We provide the 3.5 because the Roosters fans have nothing!)
Gamebreakers: Marshall, Miller, Galloway and Moltzen
The bunnies are waiting and the Tigers will be heavily challenged by Inglis and Co.
All will be revealed next week.
Thanks Tri no scoreline ???
24-20 would be about right!
A video ref decision Could blow it out to 8 or 10 margin but no more than that!
The Ball seems confident that the injury issues will not have as big of an impact on this result as once thought…atleast for this match!
**I do not promote gambling but if your up for a tip then this would be it…
Tiger WIN or Tigers/Tigers for an exotic.
1st Tryscorer - Farah and/or Utai
Last Tryscorer - Brown and/or Marshall
:ugeek: Any sort of line or margin betting would be suicide on this match!
Actually better question NO INJURIES ???
Our run with major injuries is done!
Fatigue related injuries may pop up but certainly nothing that will see a players missing games with lengthy spells on the sideline.
The Crystal Ball repeatedly shows me that we will be TOP 4 again….probably sitting at 8 and 5 by the half way mark! 16 pts seems about right!
A powerful end to the season with a full strength lineup when others will be struggling with their own injury crisis…namely Dragons, Manly and Bulldogs.
A Reject Shop Crystal Ball……it may not be real crystal Tri…sorry to disappoint.
It also suggest two things:
1. The ball probably only has 6-10 good working months left in it.
2. You are probably a teacher if you are shopping at the Reject Shop.
Re:1 - I buy a NEW one every season!
Re:2 - I’m Married to a teacher!
SPOT ON Tigergirlz……Don’t tell me you have a Crystal Ball too…your 2 from 2 with your predictions on me!
