In 2022, we had a couple of tough matches (Panthers & Roosters) to start the season, but overall, we had the easiest draw with the least amount of games against top four & top eight sides. If a team is be truly competitive, it has to be able to win against all comers, regardless of the draw.Manly with the second hardest draw for 2023
As long as Tommy stays healthy for at least the first half of the season, we should have enough brownie points in the bank for us to scrape into the 8 somewhere.I’d love us to have a successful year and make the 8, but much will depend on injuries.
I expect Tom to break down again and our forward stocks aren’t strong to start with , so for me about 10th / 11th ( again ).
Yeah, he's just about had every part of his body patched up in some way. Hoping that the patched up parts hold up well for Tommy to have another stellar year like 2021.That’s an extremely big IF.
We all love Tommy but let’s face it he’s a walking time bomb.
We can do it, let's have some positive vibesWe could be leading the comp by the start of round 3, although we rarely win round one.
I'm hoping they're not in the runningAnd guess who gets the last round bye to freshen up before finals
That's a huge advantage
Let’s be a little positive , maybe we can jag 2/7, or even 3/7.Wow , first 7 rounds are tough. Potential to be 1 from 7 or worse. Dogs will be no pushover. But to be a great team, we have to beat the great teams.
But I’m excited. I think as a whole our coaching team is pretty experienced and hopefully have the boys up for it and firing.
We play the Knights in Mudgee in round three. I have been to the two previous matches there which resulted in huge wins, so Glen Willow is a happy hunting ground. I've just booked my accommodation in Mudgee and will again make it a three-day holiday. My advice if you are thinking of going is to act now to secure accommodation as the Mudgee landlords jack up their prices when the RL comes to town.
