    Yes, it's got to be concerning for the likes of Jude for what be coming. Every time I see Joel Selwood coming off with blood coming out
    of his head I wonder what's going to be going on inside that head in twenty years time. Y'know it's a tricky one, it's a contact sport,
    this is what is going to happen. But then other people have dangerous jobs that may end up killing them. It's the risk you take.

    My new Air-Cushion Helmet should solve the concussion problem for good. Not expensive either. Only $19.99 from Ludwig Biotech LLC.

    And you've done so well to get the little pointy bit on top. Is it to make the player look bigger and scarier, or is it for extra oxygen?

    And is the painting on the wall of an ancestor with similar headwear?

    Don't be silly now. Everybody knows it's for Brodie Grundy's man bun.

    Shhhh! I really don't want that to become a hipster trend.

    Then again, it might be quite entertaining?

    Not that I'm aware of. But personally, I don't really pay attention to anything that Lloyd and Barrett say, so other people might have a better idea than me.

    everyone does it differently:
    6th in season 2020 after getting belted by us in the last round of 2019.
    Will the below additions diminish their ability or elevate them into the top4?

    2021
    Crouch
    Woods
    Frawley
    McKernan
    Higgins

    recent couple of years
    Ryder
    Hannes
    Howard
    Jones
    Butler
    Hill
    etc

    I can't see the Saints finishing top 4. I reckon it's more likely that they will slide a little than rise. Also, I think the biggest improvement is more likely to come from players who were already on their list (e.g. Hill, King, Coffield & Clark) rather than the new imports.

    and the other half are injured, aren't they?
    I did think I heard/read that both Jones and Hanners have slight hamstring injuries.
