    There were soooo many things wrong with that one it would be difficult to find a place to start!

      It was an abomination is what it was! That filthy rabble have been a charity case for the NRL since they were unfortunately bought back from extinction.

      The best thing about us being in the GF this year was beating Rusty's sordid protected species to get there. I was O/S for over 5 weeks until a few days before the GF and had to resort to live scores on the Fox/NRL websites in the early hours of the morn as the games were being played, which was extremely stressful, espec during the Vermin match. I'd look at the score, swear because it was so close and throw the phone down on the bed, try not to look at it for 5 minutes and then repeat the process again.

      Preventing our mortal enemy, Rusty's Filthy Vermin, from being be in the GF was just as important as us being in it, as far as I was concerned.
      Roll on Season 2017 ...

          How old is he now anyway and how many good years are honestly left in him?

                But yes true Nene off to the cowgirls - doesnít mean they have Taupau though - Melbourne released Jacks today as well maybe they want him to play back up half for them.

                Someone asked how many many good years left in him - plenty - he is not old at all - guessing 25.

                  28 so Iím a bit off but at least 4 good years - as a front rower they only get good about them and these days especially him 40 mins a game has plenty left in the tank

                    I always find it a funny mentality when people talk about going back to back like we have something to win. We don't have anything to win, only to lose. We are not a contender we are the champions, it is our premiership to lose.

                    You would never hear a champion boxer talk about having to win his title again, he defends the title and it's the mark of a true champion if they can manage to defend that title.

                    It will be interesting to see what the mental approach is from Robbo and the team, I'd love to see us take the approach of it's our title to lose, not win again.

                    It's a different mindset.... a different challenge.

                      It was something special actually ay! Last game at the SFS, biggest crowd ever at the SFS (for any sport - how do they do that when there's a max tickets sold?) and we won despite our half getting seriously injured. One for the ages I reckon. Bottle it!!
