I do not care about the result, I do not care about Daniher, I do not care about any of that nonsense ...

I just want to see our team play their hearts out and our young kids continue to build something together. Our boys will make our future an exciting one.
Yep, more of what we’ve been seeing, keep building.

We are finally seeing sensible selection, players played in their best roles, kids getting a run and performing.

Who is this club and what have you done with Essington?

Would add no season ending injuries to the list of things I don't want to see.

Agree with all that....until the game starts, then it's win at all costs;)

I'm assuming Reid will be pinchhitting in the ruck instead of Cox?
Surely at this stage he's much too light to go anywhere near a ruck contest. My preseason guide lists him at 84kegs, so even if he's added a few since, he's just going to get shoved aside in a ruck contest. I would match him up on Hipwood, who isn't exactly a strong body on body player himself. would have the reach and mobility to match up well from what I've read of him.

Now I’m not in Brisbane, but I have been told that it actually has been raining throughout today and will likely be raining during game.

So....I guess I am a weather woman after all right?! 😛😂
Can confirm that there have been showers around the southern suburbs today, nothing to severe though.

Rain with possible storms predicted from late afternoon. Plenty of times they predict that and we get nothing.

Liking the team. Guelfi suits the sub role. Can pinch hit forward, back or in the middle. Very excited to see Reid get a debut. Zerk-Thatcher wasnt terrible but he has some very clear deficiencies. Snelling locked in, Hams been improving and we still have Draper, Caldwell and Shiel missing from our best 22.
