We turned Shorty into a B&F winning, almost Norm Smith winning superstar from a suburban hack.
We can do anything if they have a special quality in their arsenal.
I’m all in. Where do we sign?
Suburban hack?
I know you're kidding but in this post-truth world not every-one else does.
Lethal with both feet but injury-interupted U18 year, and his size, meant he slipped to the rookie draft.

Not so much kidding as exaggerating the point.
From lowly rookie pick 11 to B&F in a Premiership team.
That’s some feit and not to be unappreciated.

Concerning training reports that Bachar is struggling to get over his calf injury.
Does lead to some questions as to whether it was the right thing to re-sign him or whether he should have retired at the end of last season & opened another spot on the list.
Never write a champion off but as we know with the old man's injury, it tends to get worse not better as you get older.
Can't see him having a big impact from here unfortunately.

I Agree Toots that he probably shouldve retired after his GF Heroics (which ironically have contributed to his current situation no doubt.).

He was only going last season and was never in top form on his return.

No doubt they will take the slow road with him to try and have him right for when it counts.

Hopefully the Bash is ready and in ripping form when things get hectic.

All good rest him until 2nd half of the season , no rush here .
I wonder whether we will end up in a Grigg like situation with Bachar in the middle of the year. I really do hope he gets a run at it during the season and can go out on his own terms.

Not many players do however

Really hoped we'd be the first club to field a premiership team again. Not looking good.

I wouldn't stress too much about Houli, it's important to remember we are on a very delayed preparation this year due to the late finish to the season last year. For our older guys, it's really only early January in a normal year.

I doubt they will be looking to really tick him over until close to the start of the season and will be looking for him to peak at the right time. He looks after himself, doesn't drink and has lots of training years under the belt so his condition will come back really quickly once he is ready for some training load.
