Has been badly battered and bruised this year but gets up week after week. His durability is as much as a highlight as his form is.

Saty must be frothing.

Another 3 years of jumper 39

Also stops the winding up he has been giving me about moving back to WA for last 6 weeks

Word on jumper this year Boordiya  means Boss    about right

Is that cos he know he has to be a leader down back these days @Satyriconhome, with Plugger Mac a permanent forward and Lever going down with the knee knack?

He has been a leader down there for longer than that and more importantly I think the other backs love and respect him. I suspect he gets that from all the team. A man comfortable in his skin and his role as a leader.

Much love for this guy. Hope he stays on at the club in some role post-playing career.

You really seem confident about this ProDee.

I must suffer from the past more than you do.

Well done Neville 

Shows what dedication and hard work can do.

Next task - mentoring Dion Johnstone to become a worthy successor: by all accounts some inroads have already been made.

Some symmetry perhaps: Nev was dropped to the rookie list and thrived, whilst Dion looked to be gone but a change of role (like Nev from forward to defense) may make the grade, perhaps.

I bet the actual document was placed on the wrong side of a table that should've been far to big for him to reach across, but somehow he still managed to get a fist to it.

The world needs a more superlative term for the kind of rock-solid respect that Neville Jetta has so thoroughly earned.

Oscar McDonald was 50cm away and couldn't impact the contest because he didn't react and leave his agent quick enough to impact the contest/contract-signing.

Heheh, yes, I was thinking much the same:  it was probably someone else's meeting but they didn't turn up and Nev had to run across the hall to get there.

I gave up suffering from the past about 10 years ago.

I made a choice.

Has been quieter in recent weeks due to niggles, but still gets the job done, week after week.

Proud to have him at the club.

When we lost, the first thing I felt was sadness for Nev. Once again the only one desperately trying to save the game and spoil at the end. I'm unsure where our talls were positioned but a part of me thinks that is exactly where Gawn would have been, but he was off with a scratch (didn't get sent off with blood rule from memory?)
