    If there was one player I could pick to dominate for us against the Swans it would be Tippa. When he gets lots of the ball - you just know he's going to hit up targets on the lead and our whole forward line is just going to work. Not to mention when he is getting those run down tackles it lifts our entire side.

    I agree that the week off will have done him good. Last year we needed to rest him, this year we played him 22 games. I think there's a chance we'll see his absolute best on Saturday.

    will be key today. If he can minimise Buddy's influence it will go a long way to winning this.

    Run the big prick down when Buddy is taking the piss with a 4 bounce run along the wing. That would be sweet and Hooker would love it too.

    If we are any chance today, Walla has to curb Buddy's influence like he did in round 14.

    And, just while this guy’s name is bumped up on the 1st page, what a fantastic 2017 this guy has had. Checked out his 2017 highlights - he is just a freaking gem stone. His year-on-year development, the way he has improved areas of his game that were weaker ... who knows where he is heading. More midfield time perchance? I said at the end of 2016 that I would have been happy with more of the same in 2017 - and that is the case this year again. Would love to see him with the Cup.
    Equal favourite player of all time I think.
