As I said earlier in this thread ( in one of my many Captain Obvious moments!) , last night was a very important game for us, in securing an all-important top 2 spot. Particularly in that context , that was a superb result. Yes the Broncos had some big outs, but the way we sliced them up will not make them feel very confident if they have to come to AAMI Park for a final.
The 30 point differential also is a great help for us.
One very impressive aspect was that we put so many points on them whilst Jesse was off the field ( hopefully it is just a kick on the calf , as reported on Fox , and that he is sweet for next week), and with Jordy hopefully back next week.
As is shown by the comments of others above, Curtis Scott has created a very interesting selection dilemma when Cheyse returns . Not an issue next week of course against Parra, with Blair in for Chambers.
It is very enjoyable watching the Sharks v roosters game now on Fox, knowing one of them will fall even further behind us.
With this breathing space on top, we do not need to stress about the Parra game. Then a bye after SOO, which comes at a perfect time, amd then full steam ahead to the finals !
As a reflection of our depth , although we might have 7 guys in SOO3, we might have some pretty handy replacements( with a bit of luck re guys returning from injury )
Slater - Hughes
Munster - Jacks
C Smith- Griffin
Kaufusi- Myles / Harry Grant ( depending on whether Craig is happy for Kenny to share the hooking role , or blood young Harry ),
