    Proposed date is Saturday 12th August

    Roosters vs Dolphins at the SFS 7:30pm

    Earlier games that day are Bunnies vs Dragons at 3pm (in Cairns), Tigers vs Warriors at 5:30 (in NZ)

    So if that date works meet at a pub in Surry Hills to eat/drink/watch games and then head to SFS to be disappointed by Teddy's Fantasy output

    Other date suggestions welcome.

    Also gives me a rare opp to watch a Dragons game without getting 250 irrelevant questions, or the very thing I’m watching described back to me but incorrectly

    If you're with forum people watching a rabbitohs game, you may be told to "stand and applaud" an awful lot

    This may or may not be better than your current situation

    I'm keen.

    The sooner its confirmed, the sooner I'll book flights. Had a quick look earlier and prices were reasonable.

    I guess with MS that gives us 5 already which is near enough to confirmed go ahead?

    I'm going to have to confirm closer to the date. I've cashed in all my leave passes for a 2-3 week road trip with the boys and get home the weekend before.

    Flooding at Birdsville no worries so you might get lucky amd have water in Lake eyre, if there is I highly recommend a scenic flight

    99% certainty I'm in just gotta convince the missus I should have 2 weekends of debauchery in a row

    A few of the usual suspects would probably be interested even though they don't post much anymore

    Been watching the water come down from the top end and road closures. A lot just opened back up this week. Fingers crossed we get the best of both. It's still 3 months away so water in the lake might be sparse, another cyclone in WA next month would be handy.

    It is what it is, I suppose, but I forgot how expensive even basic accommodation is in the ~post c*v*d~ world.

    Anyway, all booked in.

    I am now 100% in

    If we don't care much about food there are a few decent pubs on Foveaux street running from Central Station to the stadium. Can end at the Captain Cook hotel (normally packed on game day) or the Cricketers Arms if we want a bit more breathing room

    I haven't been out in that area for years but some decent places to drink are

    taphousedarlo.com.au
    kegandbrew.com.au

    If we'll be a decent sized group we should book a space somewhere
