    No offence to Wenty fans, but it will be good to see two new sides playing in the Reserve Grade GF this year.

    The Bulls are an exceptional team, not to be taken lightly, but hopefully the Tigers can show some of the spirit they've shown in the finals series so far to go all the way :D

    I'm so psyched that I'll be there, even if they lose, seeing Balmain in another Grand Final for any grade is fanatstic.

    Barba has something to prove

    Josh Rakic | October 4, 2009


    BULLDOGS coach Kevin Moore says enigmatic halfback Ben Barba will have a chance to prove his NRL credentials this afternoon when he leads feeder club Bankstown City Bulls into battle against Balmain Ryde-Eastwood in the NSW Cup grand final at ANZ Stadium.

    Barba has had the sole playmaking responsibilities thrust upon him after the controversial and confusing omission of five-eighth Daniel Holdsworth, who was ruled out by NSWRL officials who stated he'd played too many NRL matches to qualify - despite having led the star-studded Bulls to the grand final.

    ''It's a real shame,'' Moore said of Holdsworth, who will learn this week of his future at the Bulldogs. ''We feel he's been a touch hard done by due to the fact there were so many weekends he couldn't play Premier League, which wasn't his fault.

    ''I understand the rule is majority of games played, so it was very unfortunate that there were a number of times he could have played for the Bulls but didn't because of split rounds and byes and that sort of stuff.

    ''It's devastating for Daniel because he's been a pretty important part of that squad and contributed a lot to their success.''

    Moore has labelled teenage sensation Barba the man to lead the club to their third grand final win this year - having already won the SG Ball and Harold Matthews competitions.

    ''Hopefully he can stand up and lead the team around the park - that'll be great for his development with a view to play more first grade next year.

    BANKSTOWN: 1 Brent Crisp, 2 Heka Nanai 3 Tim Winitana, 4 Matt Utai, 5 Nick Taylor, 6 Peewee Moke, 7 Ben Barba, 8 Charlie Leaeno, 9 Nathan Smith, 10 Fred Briggs, 11 Danny Williams (c), 12 Brad Morrin, 13 Lee Te Maari.
