Interesting to see Carse back at the bombers as senior coach. He was a gun for them in his playing days. Do you know why he is listed as an "in" on the recruitment list ??Justa,
Great report from Saturday, it sounds like the Sydney teams are up and firing, I hope it is still that way for both at the pointy end of the season!
While I as an Aspley supporter appreciate your kind words of respect for the Hornets who are ticking over just nicely at the moment, I think the passage of time has woken last years premiers up from their slumber and these guys deserve a touch more of a rating to coincide with their silverware of last season, they (the Sharks) have been the quite achievers this pre season and as we in Queensland all know from past experiences, once the Sharks are up and about and they get on a roll they are very hard to contain - With Canberra in the mix again this year after a break out season last year, along with the NT Thunder who are always hard to beat every season and the Redlands Bombers with their change of guard and influx of some Southern handy players along with some good young guys returning, it looks like it will be a closer, more even season, competition wise all round this year in the NEAFL - Lets hope for footy in our Northern states and Territories sake, it is played this way right through the season up and to the grand final.

Thanks Billy, yeah I knew when he left he had pursued coaching at the amateur levels back in Vic. Good to see him back at the Bombers and in the top job. Obviously has aspirations to go much further and he's certainly young enough. I just thought it was odd he was listed as a recruit. I can't imagine he'd be a playing coach.Pea Nut.
I am pretty sure Phil left Bomber Land to explore his Coaching options as he received an offer from a side in the Colac area of Victoria. He has been down there plying his new trade for the past few years and he has subsequently returned home, apparently with some pretty handy Country Victoria Footballers whom I am led to believe can play and will fit in at the Bombers and more importantly at the NEALF Level, one of the other scribes on this forum will be able to elaborate in finer detail I am sure, as my knowledge is limited on this subject, I only know what the jungle drums have given out along with a few NEAFL news grabs!
Make sure you get there early to avoid the huge lines getting in. Just kidding, it will be you and a few locals. Guarantee you will be able to watch the game from wherever you like.How much of a crowd do games generally get? I might make my way to the Friday night game in Canberra for my first NEAFL experience.
Yeah I'll definitely be there, I picked up a GWS membership to get my AFL fix and introduced my gf to the sport as well (unfortunately she insists on being a GWS supporter, but it'll make for a good trip to Sydney to watch us play each other).We'll be there on Saturday to watch the GWS v StKilda at Manuka - why not try that as it is a fantastic venue and manageable crowds.
