    To be honest as a genuine Bottom 6 team and coming off a wooden spoon last season, the team, from coaching staff to every single player, should be congratulated for what they've achieved by finishing either 5th or 6th. It's a massive over achievement for this group for mine.

    Sure the poor performances of half the comp has contributed to our position on the ladder, but you can only beat what is in front you and more often than not these blokes have delivered this season.

    Well done and bring on the finals.

    Looks like I got 5 out of 10 right and some of the others can be subjective, so I am going to award myself an 85% pass mark.

    They've finished top six twice in three years.

    I’m really upset that we didn’t receive one of those easy draws last year

    They definitely over achieved two years by making the Top 4, but we had a general better squad of players compared to the rest of the comp two years ago than this year.

    Others are selective with what they remember.

    I said we would finish 6th.

    Well, the merkins had to go f**k it up for me, and make me look like even more of a clueless idiot, didn't they?

    Just shows what happens when amidst better players. If Gennings had not have been injured to start the season Sivo may never have gotten his chance. Wasnt Gennings BAs choise for "Back of the Year" last season? Go Sivo!

    A big maybe I reckon but who knows. BA gets his favourites and GJ was definitely one of those. Whatever the reason Sivos form demanded he kept being selected. 330k per year is an absolute bargain. French Rugby will come calling no doubt.
