Hopefully Blues x 22 and Cleary plays himself back into form.

Said it before and I’ll say it again, SOO plays havoc with the NRL competition. A one-off game at the end of the season would suit me fine, not so the tv companies.

On another note, I don’t give a damn if the players sing the national anthem or not at SOO but that might not be my opinion if they were representing Australia.


I’m with the ‘birdman’.
Couldn’t give a toss if they sing ‘Sadie the cleaning lady’ quite frankly.


… and there you have it, sadie’s a Qld’er and she cleaned up !!!

so birdman if they were representing Australia which is it ?

a) God Save the Queen –
b)Advance Australia Fair
c) Tie my Kangaroo Down Sport !!!

Sadie’s out, she’s Qld’er and that’s not part of Australia! :upside_down_face:

We could sing waltzing Matilda, however Qld sing a different version…

… then again maybe not such a bad thing lol

Of course vegans may take offence to the lyrics and have a silent protest too

Maybe an ABBA original song.
Oops, that might incur the wrath of Peter Beattie et Al.
