klemmers stats say he was the man last night.

adrian tolman, usually mocked as just an easy toiler was my best on the field. he did all the hard runs and defence. worked his backside off.

Well tipping doesn't get much worse than this! 2 from 8 in rd 1 and backed it up with 1 from 8 in rd 2! The only way is up! But hey, I'm still in the last man standing part of the comp with 8 others.



Went Storm in the last man standing. Got lucky at the end with that one. Only one in the Comp to take them so hopping for a few upsets later in the round to clean a few of the other 8 out.



Well those upsets cleared a lot out. Only me and one other left in the last man standing part. Hanging out to win this again as with the disasterous start so far it will probably be my only chance of getting my money back this year!



Took Roosters in last man standing tonight so no we sit and wait to see what the other guy does. Here's hoping for an upset in the Panthers/Knights game tomorrow night as I'd expect him to go for Panthers since they are the shortest priced favs of the round.



Still the two of us left after the Panthers demolition job. On we go to round 5.



Have taken Cowboys tonight. Give them strength!

a couple of players are coming of contract at the end of the year so could make room one would think if you want a high quality halfback which they need

Can only seeing him playing for a team that is close to a premiership, can't see him spending last year or two rebuilding a team. Out of the teams that are closest to a premiership and that need him I would say the Eels. I actually think he will retire, but will be interesting to watch.

At 33 retirement looks likely , he has a future at Fox sports as a presenter which he would do quite well at.
But if he chooses to play on then there will be several clubs looking to see if they can convince him to go to their club . what would be his asking price ? 1m+ , and of those clubs who would have the space in their salary cap.

The flip side is if he goes to someone like Parramatta or Wests and wins a comp he'll enhance his legacy, I'd doubt he'll go around again but just because I doubt he'd want to play anywhere else.

Inevitable horseshoe, will be a great addition to the ranks although it's become a real boys club now, I think this will be his last competitive year, do your best to win the comp.
get married and relax, that's the way I see this fwiw.

Ah the scars of war Heavy 10 , I think he might have to get it knocked into shape, can be a problem with snoring down the line methinks , but love is blind they say the young lady may not have noticed.

Both of us took coybows so both out. I guess that means we split the prize which I'm happy with given it's likely to be my only collect this year.

Touch footy player, a lot like Benji, no structure what so ever but when on song is untouchable. Don't think he will leave the Warriors anyway and would be asking for way too much than what he is actually worth.

Hope the Tigers don't sign him or Reynolds from the dogs for that matter.

 they have to realise that every game needs to be played hard and with speed...speed of playing the ball, passing and of foot...

 they turn on this "soft-shoe-shuffle" rubbish week three weeks out of four...then look shocked when they lose...

 Josh Reynolds outsmarted them easily...especially running into a loitering Sutton, costing a possible comeback try...

 dumb football...knew after twenty minutes they were going to mess it up...
