"T20 is too much of a gamble - you have absolutely stacked teams like the Stars doing poorly. Thunder will still make the finals, but we won't win. It'll be another Sixers year I'd say...they're almost as stacked as the Stars."

"I agree on this Tim but passing at the right time and being a solid defenders comes with experience. His experience will be missed. Waqa still has plenty of time to develop these skills when he experiences different games and situations."

The Bench

As the 2021 season draws closer (can't freakin wait) I believe our bench (if all players stay fit) will be the strongest it's been in 10yrs, will that relate to a GF appearance? Time will tell I suppose.Whats your bench look like?  Here's mine.... and remembering if all players are fit and are playing to their potential.14 Roache15 Cartwright 16 Papali'i 17 Hipgrave / Kaufusi 18 Marata

New Signings: Bryce Cartwright

I have previously discussed Cartwright’s recruitment, however this is a piece more on how the Eels will look to use him. Cartwright’s spell at the Titans promised so much yet delivered so little. He left the Panthers on the fringe of Origin selection and finished up at the Titans as a virtual reserve grader. Parramatta’s 2020 side lacked a genuine gamebreaker off the bench. When they needed something different, something a side like Melbourne couldn’t plan for, they didn’t have it. Cartwright…

If you drop a knife on the floor, don't pick it up,get someone else to do it,then tell them that they'll get a nice surprise on a particular day of the week,that you nominate. Same goes for scissors. If you were given knives,as a gift,you had to give…

The Economy.

I have just watched the news covering the virus world wide. One expert said we haven,t got to the peak of the damage the virus has caused and that there are very real chances that the vaccine may mutant to another variant which will not be controlled by these vaccines.Six months ago Economists and Governments were predicting the possibility of an extended recession.No body seems to be talking Depression right now.
