    Full strength I like our chances but we are busted. We are the cowboys GF team of last year and Melb are fresh as a daisy.

    That’s what I said. We are as busted as the cowboys GF team.

    I really hope the old boys recover. Gals will be bad, what happened to lewie?
    I think Fifita should play more minutes if gals off. Need that extra kick.

    I'm happy for Gal to be out next week.

    He was a liability in the first half.

    Just a pass mark this season. Maybe one run too many, in my opinion he has run his race.

    Next two weeks will be the biggest matches for Woods and Dugan. They are still in their prime and now gets their chance to win a premiership, the only thing missing from their stellar careers.

    Just need both to stop sulking and accept responsibility. Holmes has shown what you can do when you stop sulking.

    Dugan has been awesome from limited opportunities at the Sharks. 7 tries from 14 matches at a rate of 50% which is double the rate at his two previous clubs. He is a star.

    He played 64 this week, not sure I want him playing any more than that.

    If Gall is out I reckon Woods to start at prop with Prior starting at lock.

    Bench would be

    15. Bukuya
    16. Segy
    17. Sorenson

    If Gal is out I would be surprised if I didn’t see Fun Guy in the 17.

    Wouldn't it be flipping strange, if both us and the Dragoons made it to the Big Dancethon.

    Gallen was enormous when he was on. He made 18 runs, 137 metres, 58 post contact metres, 15 tackles and the side became rudderless when he went off. In 48 minutes of footy. Guarantee you he made all his points to set up the early onslaught as well.

    Stupid assessment Bossy.

    Was about to post the same thing. Gal was good last night. Kept us going forward and we definitely lost direction after he went off.
    If he didnt get injured he would have played the whole game, he was on a mission.

    I also think its a Bit rough we play Melbourne in Melbourne for a GF qualifier. Shouldnt it be a neutral ground?

    The way it's always been Chewie.... we blew our chance of avoiding that road trip by losing to the Rorters.

    It wasn't just his output for me, he was taking the right runs at the right time getting us into the right positions with a quick play the ball.

    It’s not good for the sport for Melbourne to be in the grand final again. They don’t give a shit about league down there and they don’t travel for the grand final.

    They have had so much success in a little amount of time that they don’t really appreciate how hard it is to make grand finals.

    Fk them.

    I will throw this out there, during the season when both Graham/Gallen were out, we put the C on Fifita and he goes to another level, its like he becomes a bloody superhero, this week Fifita big chance to captain, and my god he knows how to motivate the players and they will lift, this game is going to be most physical of the year yet

    Couldn't agree more on their attitude.

    I go a lot and there is sfa interest from people about the storm and NRL. One time a couple of weeks ago there was literally zero in the midweek paper about NRL, even Union got some coverage.

    It’s completely designed like that also.
