    The last time we were in a similar position in the semi's (with potential players out) that I can remember was 1991

    From memory we were without Snoz, Des and a fair few others (we had Christ White starting!)

    Yes we lost the game, but we gave the raiders a hell of a fright

    Why is this relevant?

    We support a great and proud club, that, regardless of the the outcome next week , will do all supporters proud.

    Yes I remember this match well, Lyons played the game of his life and almost beat the raiders on his own.
    Not only Chris White, but we had to pluck Danny Russell out of reserve grade to play hooker.
    Who knows what may happen next week, one thing in our favour will be that we will probably be the underdogs [pardon the pun].

    We had Christ and we still lost …? Who the hell did they have?

    Sometimes there is as much pride in a loss as a win - that game was one of them

    Just looked at the team list and we only named 3 subs not 4...were we that short??

    I was at this game. Cliffy was everywhere and almost won it on his own. Remember lots of cheap shots from Ricky Stewart. Lost a lot of respect for him that day.

    Yep - so many on here (not all) were so quick to write us off after Friday night. There is a great spirit in the club which means we are a shot who ever is out there
