Finals locked in
Its taken a while but we finally locked in our finals position with one round remaining. It was a game with a finals feel as both teams were wanting earn te 2 points for a better finals position. Our forwards lead the charge and set us up for a strong win. We now head to the new stadium to play our arch rivals, who are doing everything they can to say we are not welcome.
Tom Burgess after a few weeks off, came back and dominated off the bench. His game continues to grow as he powers through the middle setting up the team for vital success with his strong runs. And this week a try to boot to wrap up the game.
3rd Offence Fines dont stack up
Well the concern over having a fine system has come to light in a big way this year. Players can get 5 offences in a year and still not actually have to stand down for any games. This is not what a 3rd offence escalation should result in. Most of these 3rd offences are actually 2 match suspensions. But with a early plea you can pay $3,000 and not miss a game. For players earning big doallars this is chicken feed. The system is letting the everyone down. We need to change these 2 match suspensions "early plea" to be a 1 match suspension, going forward and close this loop hole.
