    As explained on the Tippo thread, I always hope for the best.

    It would be wonderful if you are right but I have diminished faith in the player and think he should not be selected and is traded at years end. If he kicked 3 goals in a winning GF it would also help improve his position in the trade market.

    It's worth remembering the two top ups wicks and Osborne got a half each. And they are 17 year old non professional kids.

    2018 games breakdown
    • Giants 4
    • Lions 4
    • Suns 4
    • Aspley 1
    • Canberra 1
    • NT Thunder 1
    • Redland 1
    • Southport 1
    • Sydney Uni 1

    2017 games breakdown
    • Giants 3
    • Lions 3
    • Suns 3
    • Canberra 2
    • NT Thunder 2
    • Sydney Uni 2
    • Aspley 1
    • Redland 1
    • Southport 1



    So they've taken away 1 game each against Canberra, NT and Uni to play the other 3 AFL clubs to create a really lopsided draw. However given the thrashings some of the non-AFL sides received at the hands of the AFL sides last year, I think both groups should be happy with that.

    Scheduling NEAFL Round 1 with AFL Round 3 means that the last week of the regular seasons of both competitions will be on the same week.

    The amazing news is that only one game is scheduled for Blacktown, but of course the weather might have something to say about that when the games come around next year. Newcastle game now in Wollongong and we also play the Suns away in Lismore.

    Lopsided NEAFL fixture playing AFL reserves sides 4 times each is a great result for us and our young players' development. Would have liked a couple more games against Sydney Uni (Swans 3rds) as they will be pretty strong in 2018 IMHO.

    We're going to want match reports now mate. Someone's gotta keep grimlock in check.
