It depends who you talk to on this Forum, if you are Optimistic? it's because your delusional and need a reality check. If you are Pessimistic? Your accused of being a negative Nancy and to go and follow another Club.

Are you being sarcastic? Our pool is comfortably one of the easier pools, raiders don't have any players i'd be scared of in a 9-a-side competition and titans only have a few dangerous players. We should finish 2nd in our pool

Definitely thinking of heading to it this year, although they're upping the ticket prices.

Would be awesome if we could go quite deep into this comp, as the financial reward is quite large for the winner and not bad for the runner up spots, could come in handy for us.

Titans and Warriors could both go close to winning it imo.
If Gold Coast pick their best possible team they will easily have the fastest side in the comp.

Don't think we would be to slow with Tedesco , Brooks, Moses , Austin, Simona and Nofolauma on the park .

Got sent a brochure on it for members. There's packages for air fares, 3 nights accom and 2 day ticket from $1300. To me that's awesome value. If I didn't already have a 5 week overseas holiday booked for next year id be there

Gordon, Roberts and Mead, the rest of their squad is very slow in comparison to other teams.

Last 9's tournament we made Ayshford look like Meninga

When you have the defensive issues we have , they could be Luke Covell and it wouldn't matter

I'll save the $1300 for a rainy day thanks

The 9's is a lottery so I would not have my hopes up for this one either way.

The thing with the 9s is you can't judge how good a team will be just on their nrl players. Clubs will usually take a number of NYC players along too, so you have to take into consideration how many star players each of these sides have in the NYC this year.

Warriors, heaps. Titans and the Raiders fewer than they have had in the past. So maybe not so bad afterall.
