    This is exactly the kind of game that we would have lost under the previous regime.

    Now? I have no f**king idea. All signs point to us being a much improved footy side, both in performance and character. But the scars of the last few years run deep. So I’m still expecting us to f**k up at the most inopportune times.

    A psychologist would probably have a field day analysing my trauma response.

    McRatched’s got fuc/ked over & is self medicating somewhere with Turnstile

    .... and I’ve got my XPT & SCG tickets & smiling all the way

    ORIGIN FORWARD SET FOR IMMEDIATE SWITCH

    The Herald also reports representative forward Josh McGuire is about to complete a mid-season switch from North Queensland to St George Illawarra.

    McGuire’s release is expected to be confirmed this week, and he will be a Dragons play before their Round 6 game against the Warriors.

    If all goes to plan he should be available for selection and could don the Red V on Saturday.

    Could be good timing, given the injury to Lawrie, but I’m a bit concerned that the refs are targeting us in the ruck, and McGuire has a habit of giving penalties in that area.

    Hopefully if he comes he brings his toughness and leaves the grubbiness behind.

    I was actually looking forward to seeing the boys playing against Aitken. Bugger broke his hand and has been out since Round 1 for half the season.

    Interesting had a look at his Warriors profile and had to cut what they say of his 2020 form; He ranked behind only Joseph Manu as the centre with the most tackle breaks (64) while he is also one of the most effective defensive centres in the competition.

    Would have loved seeing Rava welcome him back to Kogarah!

    Will be interesting to see if Josh Mcguire is straight into the team? Will he get a starting spot?

    Highly doubt it unless Fuimaono is injured. Or if he wants to think way outside the box and use Fuimaono as our utility in place of Wiliame and squeeze another forward in.

    I'd say McGuire will be named on the extended list of players for the game and then included in the final 17 on the bench. From theeir he may start in the run-on 13 on game day.

    You forgot a full stop and correct capitalisation.

    If you’re going to lay into someone for their error, at least be sure to be without sin.
