Also, anyone else feeling like this year could be a 2001 type of year...and we all know how far we went the next year...
Just looking at this side and making some comparisons. We have plenty of young guys who have now had a year or more under their belts and continuing to improve. A coach who is yet to prove himself but has his back up against the wall. A couple of older but solid forwards (although I am in the camp of believing we need another big bopper to bend the line). I can see some comparisons between Ayshford and Carlaw. A very talented half in Shaun Johnson, who could possibly go down as one of our best. I just think this year we are going to have some ups and downs and scrape in there, but next year (as hard as that is to say and think) is going to be the year to do the damage.
Anyways that is the way it is feeling to me at this point.
I'd be making a comparison to 2010. Lost some games we shouldn't. Won some games we shouldn't. Built nicely and fell in week 1 of the finals. I'd be content with that this year. Obviously want to get as far as possible but 4 seasons in a row without finals footy - have to start somewhere.
