    True but i can write
    Who has Cabra got their eye on this week to bolster their ranks?
    Did speak to one if their coaches today n he seems to think they will be playing their best footy at finals time.

    Their coaches also said that Asquith were hopeless and in for a tough day...... One of the coaching staff has been talking smack for weeks about Asquith. Apparently the coaches left the players after the match. Didn't even go in and speak to them.

    No idea who they have their eye on.
    Did you ask him what is stopping them finding it now or in the next 3 month's before the finals? Sounds like a cop out statement. They were full strength yesterday.

    This highlights the absurdity of the finals system. We have 5 teams doing well and clearly above the rest but as bad as Cabra are going all they have to do is win another 3 or 4 games to stay above the bottom 3 and they are in the finals. They cant beat any decent team at the moment but the squad is strong on paper and if everything fell into place they could fluke something they don't deserve.

    Think they are clinging to any kind of hope. Should be top 2 or 3 with their squad.

    Agree.
    Excluding Blacktown they have the worst attack in the competition.

    I think this is the only place I hear that Matt was at Brothers until I saw him at St Marys. Any news about big Red haven't seen him any where

    How many teams have won the competition outside the top 4?

    RMC

    Wenty 24 Guildford 10
    St Marys 40 Glebe Burwood 12

    With Allan Fitzgibbon, Kurt Falls and Meni Luke all playing NSW Cup, Chris Aunese Scanlon, Jake Maizen and Shannan Wood came back into the side after playing SS last week. Maizen scoed a double. Glebe Burwood included Cruz Topai-Aveai from the Sharks top 30.

    SS

    Guildford 30 Wenty 20
    St Marys 24 University 17
    ECE 56 Hills 16
    Moorebank 64 Belrose 16
    Ryde Eastwood 44 Brothers 10

    Cowan Epere became the 11th player to appear in all 3 grades when he played for St Marys today - 2 games in NSW Cup, 4 in RMC and 1 in SS.

    Fair point but in each of the last 2 years a lower team has reached the GF. In SS last year Guildford won 7 out of 18 and in 2017 Auburn RMC won 9 and lost 9. They both came up against dominant teams but sooner or later someone will do it.

    I am watching the rain in Manchester this morning so I wasn't at the game. That makes Cabra's performance even better, 50 minutes with 12 players.

    Yeh I agree with you about the top 8 vs top 5 but just wasn't sure if anyone had won from outside the top 4. This year is the most competitive I've seen the Ron Massey Cup so it wouldn't surprise if it happened.

    Some very big score lines in today’s games ? What are your thoughts ? East Campbeltown put hills to the sword. There structure was bad and there defence was terrible , the inclusions of Tom young ,Dion Mooney and a few others were still not good enough. They lack attack badly and d is very poor for SS quality . I think coach dan Jackson needs to make some changes because the team he has are pretty terrible.

    Hills have Belrose this week so Hills should produce their first win since round 3. The listed side has Dave Baumann, Pat Bolea and Chris McCoy included.
