    Can't wait. And I better not hope that Craig Bellamy does the dirty and coaches Brisbane next season.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    RIP Fardin Qayyumi, a true legend of CW

    Neil Henry apparently, I doubt he's going to have many problems getting a release from Canberra as a lot of Raiders players "apparently" wouldn't be too sad to see him leave,

    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    What makes you think El Masri will be dropped to Premier League? Given that he has been a tremendous servant to the Dogs for many years and the fact that his goal kicking is still by far the best int he world, I sincerely doubt he'll get dropped. Sure he has lost a lot of speed but he is still good at sneaking out tries close to the line, and as I mentioned earlier, there is nothing suggesting that his goal kicking has dropped off.

    Generally with Simon you take his predictions and go the other way

    They are.

    2nd favourite team behind the Broncs for me.

    I'd run through a flaming, anthrax laden, brick wall for Freddy if he was my coach.
