    So we are picking our team for the 9's early and actually training specifically for 9 a side footy this year.

    Winterstein has to be the first player picked.

    We should go better, with speed out wide and our little energetic halves like Cullen and api.

    Hopefully Hopoate and a new back row signing or two gets a run.

          Mate, I don't even know. I just hope that nothing competition bares us no injuries. Throw in our plug players like Wright, Wiliame, Winterstein, Godinet & others who really aren't 1st grade material.

          I know the rules say the squad has to include X amount of top line players. Send them across, throw them on for 2 minutes, then keep them off the field.

            Why do we want to do well in the nines. They are the most unimportant games of the year. No one cares who wins. It doesn't mean a thing.

                Playing a style of footy we never want them to for the rest of the year.

                  Exciting attacking footy is better than the crap we have produced for the last 2 years. Heavily Structured football is almost dead.

                    Bit harsh, without the nines win, Parra wouldn't of had a trophy to take off them... Its very important.

                        Yeah let's make sure we win the nines then the next most important game, the Batlle of Rat Park, hopefully against a second tier comp team.

                          Think we should throw in Williame, Wright, Brown, Myles and some other ones who wouldn't affect us due to injury. Let the warriors use up all their stars, we can just look on and enjoy the only stressless rugby league games until the next auckland nines

                            Eh?

                            Storm made the GF this year, Brisbane the year before and Dogs the year before that.

                            Not too sure any of them would fall under the definition "unstructured".....

                              Broncos are at their best when the throw the ball around unstructured. Dogs flunked their way into the grand final on the back of Off the cuff footy with Mbye and Reynolds. And Storm are really the only team who still play well with structure.

                                Yes the cowboys win all their games without structure.
                                I will presume for the sake of this topic that you have not heard of defense.
