Was speaking to a couple of his allumni at St Kevs, ( during an uber shift ) and they recall fondly Bard pinning a teacher against the lockers

They were the St Kevin’s Kray Brothers
In fairness that was just to prise back the Domain liftout the teacher had confiscated from Brad during class.

After our 1st game Ben Buckley sent us members an email saying he had opened up the lines of communication and would be giving us updates via our website every month.

Has anyone seen such an update?
Too busy flying backwards and forwards from Sydney. Surely he could write this whilst sitting in the Qantas Club.

Remember the rumor going around a few weeks back about Longmire coming to North next season? I laughed it off initially, but when you think about it, given that he and Buckley used to be teammates, and the fact Buckley lives in Sydney, wouldn't surprise me if they had a few informal chats. Given where Sydney is at, it may well be Longmire's thinking that it's time to move in, or he may have got a word from their board that they would be open to such a possibility...

I remember someone saying that Brads doin his best to undo his earlier life so to speak. Hated who he was so now he's reformed from that, desparate for everyone to know.

As far as character goes, as long as you're not one to drag a whole team down with how **** you are as a bloke then who gives a **** about character? And those guys are rare anyway. Most just wide eyed school kids so pick the ones who can play and discipline when needed.

Maybe Bill Shorten Consultancy will be looking for work. Get him in to do the review.
Putting aside all the political side of things, Bill's approach would love the whole corporate bureaucracy of the place and the 'stability' it's offered. He'd come back with "Clean Bill of health" wouldn't he?
