Well, finals time is here! The Eels are supposedly upbeat, but not overawed according to Bea Arthur and this young team should be better this time round having experienced finals footy the past couple of seasons. Will they be? Fark Nose!
Excluding Sivo and Mahoney, all players are fresh and available for selection. Matterson probably feels a bit hard done by sitting on the sidelines however, there are only so many spots up for grabs and it comes down to who BA can leave out. That's a great problem to have for September footy.
On another note, who's loving how Joey Lussick is playing? I'm really enjoying watching him play and he's been great for us, congratulations to recruitment for getting him on board.
Im hoping that the Eels attack down the Knight's left edge as Bradman Best can be exposed and his defence can be frail. They get a couple of big boppers back in Saiafiti and Klemmer and I'm expecting a low scoring game with a lot of play in the middle third. It's time for the likes of Gutherson, Moses and Brown to stand up and lead the team to a win. That win against the Storm a couple of weeks ago should have the boys full of confidence and ready to make a real statement during this finals campaign.
So, who wins and by what margin?
GO YOU EELS!!!
