    Poor bastard, was playing really good footy too.

    I tell you who is also playing bloody good footy is Jordan Rapana.

    I know he didn't play much at the GC before doing his 2 year stint but I never rated him very highly from what I saw.
    This year though, he's been outstanding and looks dangerous everytime he gets involved.

    Bottle-throwing dickheads at Belmore doing their best to undo the hard PR yards the club has done in recent years. Lifetime ban thanks....

    Watched the Klemmer-comforts-Stanley reply in the sheds, and I thought "wow - Klemmer looks super awkward there". Then I realised that That's as far out as the arms go these days. A little too much upper body work!!

    completely outplayed, we continue to mix in good performances with terrible one's. no consistency for a few years now


    feel for stanley, celebrates 100 games after 10 long years and gets injured before half time, he is due for some luck but just can't buy it.

    It's at the point that contractually, I would be happy enough to sign the bloke (assuming you would get salary cap concessions if/when he does get injured)......but I would have a real problem with naming the bloke in a team based on uncertainty that he would be able to finish a game without leaving you a man down.

    It's got to the point where you put an arm around the guys shoulder and advise him to look at other lines of employment.

    Brett Papworth would have killed to get 100 games. He played 7 in 4 seasons due to injuries.

    Rapa's good but my biggest issue has been and continues to be, his decision making. The guy just will not take the safe option. Ever.

    Running out of our half after not having any possession the last 10min, he's going to fight like a maniac in the tackle and 50% chance he loses it. I'm happy for him to back himself, just needs to occasionally make the percentage play like taking the tackle.

    The flick pass to Croker gave me a fucking heart attack. Just got out from defending our line and he throws that in the wet at full pace O_o. It came off but by golly we didn't need another occasion where we turned the ball over just out of our half again. Anyway its entertaining and working pretty well for him the last few weeks so I can't complain too much.
