. . . other leading teams should injury strike. We have already lost Jason but, along with Illawarra, I think we could handle the loss of a key player better than Melbourne, Brisbane, 'Boys or Tigers. What chance would you give those teams if: Melbourne lost Slater, Smith or Cronk Brisbane lost Lockyer 'Boys lost Thurston (we saw their struggle against 'Dogs), and Tigers lost Marshall I believe us and Illawarra have a better overall balance than the other pretenders/contenders. Of course it would hurt if we lost one of our playmakers, but not nearly as severely as the above mentioned teams. I hate to wish an injury upon any of the key playermakers in other teams . . . na, I, really do!
