    I remember 2V taking a leaf out of Alfie's book, hanging around on the field with a water bottle, running with the line, barking orders... Alfie was the best at this, and still is. I think the other night, he was something like 42 mins on the field.

    Why is there no rule about this? How come the league lets these guys get away with this advantage? I thought at one stage, Alfie was going to grab the ball and go for a run!

    Is it cheating? Not sure, but it's a hell of advantage, passing messages from the coach, motivating the boys. Is there a rule for water boys? If so, it is loosely interpreted. Are they wired up?

    Imagine Snake running the water around Tommy!

    This was an issue debated about 10 years ago. It's just part if the game now and done by all

    Hmmm, I think Tommy is better off without Snake yelling "take the tackle", "don't put your body on the line, you might get hurt" and "remember what they did to Gifty"...
