Thought I'd give everyone a bit of an insight into yesterdays Post Match function put on mainly for the SEQ "Country Wings" Members (of which my wife and I belong). Firstly great to catch up with a few Silvertailers, of course @vidmar was there. Good also to see my old sparring partner @mickqld @marga was there getting her Choc Cuddles @COMMANDER was there up to his usual tricks And sensational to have Max Delmege and the great Ken Arthurson in attendance as well! The function was held at the Stadium, in what's called "The Goal Line" Bar, this took place immediately after the game and went to 7.00pm (at which the team left to catch the last flight back to Sydney). Beaver was the MC and those interviewed included Tooves, Killer and Fozzie. Nothing new I guess to report, Tooves was again unhappy with the refs, can't believe that we were almost 3 times as bad as the Titans. Said he was proud of the boys to still win when they had little ball, and after a heavy duty game last weekend. Suggested that the next 3 hard games would be good for the boys and preferred to be playing harder teams than teams lower down the ladder. Also suggested that despite the Titans position on the ladder that it is always a tough game up here, and also mentioned that as the team running first EVERY side they play lifts to try and beat them, in essence there are no easy games as such!! But in conclusion said to us "don't worry, we know when to peak and we are the best in the game for peaking at the right time", so god willing (refs willing) we should be there. Beavers interview with Killer was pretty funny, very relaxed and a bit of teasing about speed / age but nothing much of substance to report on. It's also good to see shy Jamie being a little easier in front of the crowd. Fozzie was reasonably upbeat, said they had been playing great footy mid year but had gone into a bit of a slump. He was however very confident that we'd peak at the right time, and also said the players were well aware of the position they were in for a shot at the big one in October (my assumption on these comments possibly relates to Gifty's departure). The players were very relaxed and great with the fans, no photos from me (not really into that sort of thing) but I will share a new banner with you that Spooky (Steve Lucas the owner of the "Guess what Manly hates you too" ) did for the day. "You can't beat a quick BJ" I had the pleasure of taking it up to Brenton Lawrence (Spooky was busy getting jerseys signed) to get him to sign it, he nearly pissed himself laughing when he saw it!! For any of you that live in SEQ I can't but recommend these nights, they have one every year (at either Brisbane or the Gold Coast) so Country Wings membership is very much a well worth while expense (as you also get a ticket to the game as well). And finally I got a win as the last 4 or 5 times I'd seen the Eagles play (one of which was the GF) they had all been losses.
