    Wests are specialists at having close losses, then they'll come out and have a 30 point win over one of the top teams. It's been happening as long as I can remember - even back to when they were called Western Suburbs.

    That's true. For years they've had teams that had potential to be really good. Loads of good players - most of whom usually move on to other clubs. Playing a full 80 a real problem. Even yesterday they seemed to go into "Not bovvered" mode for 20 minutes of the second half. A lot of their players ride the confidence wave. When things go well they spark up and look like world beaters. Just need to hang in there more when they're under the pump.

    They haven't had a lot of trouble beating us in recent seasons. Sometimes twice.

    Like Parramatta, Wests seem to reserve their best games for the Woodies

    Ooops - barred from a Facebook page because I asked why he resents Manly so much;).
    Those who look for excuses, and fault - are not / rarely the leaders.

    So I went back and watched that last 15 minutes I missed on Saturday. Ho-leee-crap what a finish! That was one of the most entertaining Shield games I've seen in a while in that last quarter.

    Hearing that allot - record and am keen to watch it.
    Table would be vastly different if Wests score up to 7 points extra in each of their games.
    An extra 4 wins.

    And it got relatively good ratings comparatively to other games this season with 18k tuning in. Only beaten by the Uni/Eastwood game in Mudgee earlier this year.

    One thing that stuck in my memory was when George, at the peak of his career, appeared at the Reserve Grade Grand Final one year to support the Marlins.

    George Smith - a great role model for existing top line players all the way down to the grass roots.
