I think someone's hit the Xmas tipple a bit early! Quite a few typos!

After last week's effort, I fear another loss, but I'd love to be proved wrong. COYB !!!

Megagrumpyblue you're right we do, it's time for the old guard to move on and a new captain to be in place for the first game in the new year.

For those who have dismissed the possibility of relegation this term Richmond have won again and are only a couple of bonus point wins from us . Do we not have to play them away still too ?

Most haven't commented for a few weeks, fair enough. Away at Pirates too, great win for them. It's a relegation dogfight now. Time for change

Agreed. We are 11 points from Richmond and only 6 points from fourth. Looks like a battle for the playoffs.

I was at the match and the two teams were pretty evenly matched. Hopefully we can get a couple of wins under our belt and go on a winning run.
