    Ken Irvine might have been a Bears star,  but he saw the light and had to move to Manly for it to shine.  72 & 73.

    Yes they pissed off the storm today for continual salary cap breaches and for generally being a useless team of ****wits.  The bears are back and on the road again. 

    Lingard played Toyota cup last year.  Didn't realise that he was that fast though.

    With Snake out he is probably next fastest, though Robbo has a bit of go about him too

    Robbo seems to need a bit of lead time to wind up.  I would have thought Williams was very fast from a standing start over 80 metres.
