    The Tassie representation is also good on the same basis. SA the best of the big states.
    There have been recent seasons where NT and Tassie have scored a donnut on players drafted, LW. This was a comparatively good one for them.

    The wheels are slowly turning in Tassie . There’s a few handy boys coming through next year that I would expect to get drafted . The U/16 team won the division 2 title .
    There slowly fixing the issues with having a better representation of North West players . Years gone by nearly all the training was done in Hobart with some in Launceston

    It’s ok, we’ve also got Tom (x3), Dick (well, 2xWill anyway) and Harry.

    I thought we were a bit slow getting on the Cooper and Jayden/Jaiden bandwagon. We still lack a Bailey and Phoenix.

    We've had a Tyrone but still no Tyrells.

    We're also a Sam down - only two left. But up to 3 x Will with Edwards joining now too.

    Remarkably Jack and Scott free.

    Hayden, Brayden & Jaiden really have to get together and do something in the Christmas revue. Perhaps with the Tom-Tom-Tom club to follow with some drumming.

    How about the Old Testament crowd with the number of Elijahs, Joshuas and Jacobs? We were late to the party too!

    The draft strategy was not done to deliberately piss anyone in particular off. We needed to trade picks. We had to nominate F/S twice to get the trade done. Taking Vickery was not a deliberate plot to piss, Hawks off. Thry knew he was likely to go before 40 anyway. So the supposition we did it just to piss off the team we just traded picks with is just stupid supposition. It does not make sense. We picked, Vickery because we thought him the best player at that point of the draft who suited our needs.

    This stupid Melbourne Media ankle kicking is a powder puff in a storm. Tomorrow they will find another interstate club to bitch about

    Well we definitely tried Joshua, and we dabbled with Elijah - but in terms of the Old Testament where are our Noahs, our Moses, our Abrahams? What do we stand for? We're having a bet every which way with our New Testament crew of Luke, Mark, and John too (although Matthew got left behind). I don't know where Caleb fits in but he sounds scriptural to me.
