The disadvantage of not having your seconds still playing is now starting to show. Marchbank was very shaky on Friday night and is probably not required against all the Lions smalls. Boyd would be an obvious choice but can't be considered due to lack of match practice. Kennedy showed it. Was not on the pace like the others.

Double edged sword, Friday Doc and Acres won't have time, Saturday and the travel and rest is the issue.

How much did all that cost you if you dint mind me asking.

Club had offered a few packages with that and tickets included, but it seemed excessiveness priced

I think the airlines have jacked the prices after the game.
Also school holidays.
So accomodation in Brisbane won't be cheap
Might need to call Walletwizard ::)

for 2 people flights are 2300 return with Qantas.  Could have had cheaper with a few different variations.

Not sure what the club are offering.

We get an 8 day break, GWS gets 7.  5:15 allows the team to return that night (in preparation for Grand Final week!!😉)

Oof, I know this is about Carl v Bris but … GWS are looking ominous.

Everyone has dismissed our loss to them as no big deal. Players out, no incentive, etc., but I’m not buying any of it.

They dismantled us, pure and simple, like they did to Port last night.

Probably a Lions + Giants GF. BooHoo AFL.

I doubt any tipster will select us to win, and rightly so... on paper just about everything says BrisVegas should overpower us, perhaps easily - fresh and rested list, on their dung heap, weather conditions they're used to. And us? Walking wounded, much smaller pro us crowd and unconvincing victories (scoreboard wise) in recent weeks. David v Goliath stuff.

The one thing we do know is that our group will give it their all.

Although many of us have questioned H being selected of recently times, paradoxically, I'd see him as an imperative inclusion for this game. Martin is a Monty. Unfortunately, JSOS would still be underdone with an insufficient training block to come into such a taxing game in Bris heat.

Ollie will likely make way for Martin, but what a valuable experience he gained on Friday night. Kennedy to make way for H. Cunners sub. Fingers crossed for how Doc comes up.
Only our ruthless best, from Board to bootstudders will get us no. 17

we will be going to that too.  The bathroom renovation will just wait until another year.

We need H in if he’s okay to play. He maybe missed some goals but he is so important to the structure - I think people forget he did some great things other than kick goals. And he frees up Charlie.

My head says we are the walking wounded and our season is about done BUT I didn’t realise sitting at the MCG watching that first quarter against GC that from the second quarter on, we would be a completely changed team that would not stop. But it happened.

Also free game for us, nothing to lose - expecting to see no nerves this time around which hopefully means that we hit our kicks spot on and take our opportunities early.

Initially the club had a 2700 (each) option, including 2 nights accomodation and game ticket....and a few other little perks. That sold out super quick.
Then they had a day trip there and back on a chartered flight including shuttling to/from ikon park/airport/gabba for 1800 each. That was sold out 2 hours later when i first heard about it.....may have sold out in 5 minutes for all i know.

Can't even get return on sunday, or late enough sat night to catch the end of the game.

I think i'm pretty much out of options. I ain't driving for 17 hours there and 17 hours back in a weekend.
