    New major sponsor?

    The past is often imagined to be better. Looked at objectively the players were far less athletic the skills generally poor the facilities were rubbish and the behaviour of spectators and players crude and often loutish. There were no tactics and little structure apart from "get on your man". Coaching was something else. The torpedo has disappeared apparently but frost hunt and dunne disagree and on the evidence it has a place. Drop kicks are gone but drop punts are much more reliable. New forms of goal kicking have evolved in the banana round the corner and the dribbler. We of a certain age hark back to the 60s and 70's more generally we live better longer and safer. I miss seeing league teams and the replay after the game but i couldnt record the game see highlights on youtube or see interviews with favourite players and so much more Sorry to rain on the nostalgia parade!

    Bernie Vince Retires

    Loved the mongrel he brought and his cheeky grin He must have been a great team mate you would think and his versatility was valued From a team development perspective his retirement is timely

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Cant agree more. Channel Michael Corleone... "its not personal its just business" Take your emotional attachment out of it and try to be dispassionate and you end up saying... "if the price is right"
