    It'll be up to him mate, no-ones pressuring him. He's been doing full training for a while. And yes he won our b&f by a big margin in our premiership year but didnt get his own medal so he's keen for that.

    That indeed is the case budgie... to a point!! 4-5 blokes in 40s or 50s, playing 2nds footy is quite incredible. You wpuld want to make sure a Doctor is on hand... are the tigers running low on troops?

    Yes I’m sure medic will be close by smy in saying that our two 50 year olds have trained all year and played nearly every game so very fit for their age the 3 around or over 40 not so but r cunning enough to stay out of harms way hopefully

    Noosa recruited one of them from maroochys 3rds from last couple if years, very good player and still very fit. Plays qld masters. Allegedly offered a really good seniors health plan and free hip replacement...

    Be interesting to c how many boys make themselves available to the rep game this weekend.fairly late in the season to be playing rep footy imo however I’m a big believer in the concept.i know noosa had 8 or 9 nominated but at least half of them unavailable through injury

    Yeah im a believer thAt it is good for blokes to play if possible. Different coach, differwnt thoughts, bring them bk to club possibly. Improves theplYer too.
    I know plenty have made themselves unavailBle for varioUs reasons, probBly some bs, probBly some encourGed not to by club, some legit.

    You need to check your spelling sir!
    Its a great concept, and something ide always encourage players to do, but agree its far to late in the year. A decent injury in this can finish your yr at this stage. Rep footy, imo, should be an experience you dont get at club level, and play it as a curtain raiser at Gabba or Metricon. This should ensure players have a + experience, tell there mates how good it was and dont hesitate committing again. Im sure the timeslot at 4.30 at Aspley is not as appealing for the South boys as a trip to Cairns is. I think youll find most up North would have made themselves available. My tip is North for this reason

    Just incredibly fast typing leads to errors.. :)
    Not sure why game wasn't played Queens Birthday weekend - yeah agree with being able to play curtain raiser to an AFL game where possible but other states seem to get away with playing their matches without needing to do this. Its post a NEAFL match (which should ensure the crowd is doubled for the NEAFL game anyway.. :) ) at a good venue. Look if there is an injury think you have to be pragmatic and say well one could occur in Rd 18 as well. That's just the luck of the sport we play imo.
    And if all blokes want is a trip away well hopefully the selectors keep that in mind for later years when selecting their group...

    Be interested to hear if anyone was at the rep game on Sat and the quality of it? It seemed like a very low scoring affair for a rep game where players are usually let loose and encouraged to showcase their obvious ability.

    Being a night match made it more or less a wet weather gAme. Very dewey and slippery esp after1/4 time. Sth were miles too good imo. Had good rebound off hbl, and Although got beAten at clearances and stoppGes were too good in transition. Probably a good indicTion of where the 2 comps are at considering this was meant to be northa strongest team for a while and souths weakest. Mond you i think it was a blessing that a number of blokes got their chance to play rep footy for south and grabbed it with both hands.

    Time again think games begin earlier on day but understand aflq probably trying to maximise who would go and wAtch by starting After the qafl games had finished.

    I think we'll see JR return this week - and yes Bevo is training the house down, coming back through the 3rds - a couple of weeks away (NOT) In fact I've only seen him once this year. He was never playing. Sorry to hear Cubby is finished. I loved the way he played - tough, inside, big workrate, gave it to the opposition. I agree the rep game should be earlier but also that the bye in July is on Splendour weekend. Its so popular with the young blokes. I bet UQ were hit by unavailable last weekend.
