It sure is. The day after he signs a five year deal no less.

Nick is one of our most important marshals in defence.
Hope it's only 6 weeks. It's a long way back from here regardless.
Yep. Massive loss. In the context of things it could take us some time to adjust. Unfortunately we have no one else like him on the list who plays in the same way. Hence why it’s even more important Balta is down there full time. He can’t be our second ruck.

Can Lynch Jack & CCJ play in the same team with CCJ as the 2nd ruck ? Makes for a slow forward line. But keen to see what he can do at senior level.

Dimma needs to address that when asked about Tigga next time.

"Oh Nick yeah hes out for another few weeks, you know the BS injury that you guys all said we apparently were scamming with".

Shows how $^#**^#^*#$ dumb these wankers are if they think we'd sub Tigga off at any time if he was fit.

F#$%#& cocksmacks

We need to find out if CCJ can play. It will be a similar set up like West Coast with Kennedy, Darling and Allen. The extra tall means the opposition is less likely to double team Lynch or Jack. But more importantly it keeps our structure down back at all times.

This is what I want Smoko. I reckon we can set up the tall trio like WC does.

no worries.

one soldier down, another one stands up.

Broady is the natural cover for Love Machines role, and as he learns it, we gain flexibility and resilience,

which wins flags.

We just need the usual premiership winning approach of keeping the win/loss ledger at least even, while these VIPs are on the sidelines.

we really need Stackman fit ASAP.

Sadly Stacky 2019 aint available.

He'd already be in the side if he was, most likely at the expense of Caddy or Aarts.

Fingers crossed he gets fair dinkum and is wound up and ready to rip come round 15/16 this year and he can bring his very best and add the extra gear we might be in need of come Big Boy month into September.

2019 Syd makes our siide better simple.

Lets hope we see it again and he can get his hands on the medal he unfortunately missed out on in 2019.
