  • Strong pack the Kwas have there.

    Fred Zeilinga better get some big shoulder pads this week cos those fellas are going to be running at him on Friday night.

    It totally baffles me that, considering the lack of quality tight heads around, we get rid of Nick Schonert. Surely he was one player we could have kept.
