Was chatting with my mate tonight and we both agreed (before all the last minute withdrawals) that a fighting loss would be acceptable. I have to say the boys performed admirably tonight. Souths were well disciplined and if not for Hollywood Harrigan type make up penalties they would have gone through the game unpenalised! But Our boys held true. I still dont think we have a premiership winning team...this year, but we have the makings Foran - Sublime Cherry-Evan = Growing up quickly Oldfield - A solid performer and a worthy replacement for Robbo Hoppa - He is not a fullback...yet, but the sooner we settle on his position and gradually introduce him the better I don't believe we will challenge this year (not a pessimist, more a realist - happy to be proven wrong). But while ever my team turns up like they did tonight, and put in for the full 80 I will cheer them until I go hoarse. I firmly believe that 2013 is our next year, with or without Hasler! Go you mighty Eagles!
