    Even if he was going to play I wouldn't expect he'd have been named in todays team

    I won't read anything into that, Des has stated he will give him as long as possible to play

    It still feels unreal to have Brett back.

    His leap for his try and the flick pass to set up another in the corner showed that he hasn't missed a beat. I couldn't believe it though when he got chased down after making a break so hopefully he has some speed that he's building up to.

    des regularly just throws any team up there, he has protested about having to name a team on tuesdays for the last few years, a few times he has posted the team that played on the weekend before, made changes all over the park

    Yes PL, I felt the same at the time watching from Vid's corporate booth on the hill.

    Under normal circumstances we know Brett would have burned them off, however given the fact that he has spent much of the year recovering from the knee op and in far from ideal training conditions, it not surprising that he is still far from top speed. Great to see his touch and anticipation is pretty sharp for only two games in...

    I looked at him warming up on Saturday night and he looked like he could do with a few more runs to hit peak form.  Carrying a bit of weight slows one down I've noticed.

    Apparently doesn't stop Georgie hitting 52kms per hour at the SFS

    Yep, that's very fast for such a big guy.  Almost unbelievably fast.

    Is that it? Gee, how the mighty have fallen.
    Hep Cahill? Sounds like an exotic infectious disease.
    Ryan Tandy? If Blair is out maybe they'll bring in Dick Smith.
    No offence to the players named, and Bellamy will have them, primed for a huge performance, but seriously our team should take that lot d-o-w-n.

    At the game I was surprised at how quickly Brett was run down but having seen that bit on the telly, the winger had a much shorter path to where he was and Brett was running at an angle. As a sprint coach most athletes take a long time to get back their full speed but he is still very quick and more importantly he knows the right place to be at the right time.
