I think this current group can find their feet and write their own stories in time because they are not similar in any way to the group before them!Yep - agreed.
And I'm not concerned because you can't replace those guys overnight and I think we've done a pretty bloody good job of it all, but need another couple of these guys to emerge from somewhere.
I remember Bob Murphy likening Hodge as the Marlon Brando of his generation which seemed s fantastic insight from a quality person/player who saw first hand of how brilliant in a cowboy/mafioso sort of way Hodge operates. You add Sam , Jordan, Gibbo, Cyril to that and you get one helluva ‘Mob’ that had the win at all stakes mentality in such a tough profession.
O’Meara, Mitchell, Wingard, Scully, Stratton, Smith, Shiels , Mcevoy and Gunston will grow as a group as they knock off some good teams and hopefully lead us to the promised land.
Also, our younger brigade seem quite tough and competitive as well , Worps, Morrison, Sicily and Howe don’t seem timid types.
But Hodge Mitchell Lewis belong in a different category altogether! Blessed, we were.
