As we come down to the last game of the year...what were everyones thoughts on the other teams and their seasons?

Who impressed, who surprised, who failed to deliver, whos setting up for a big year next year?

Bond - missed opportunity in big games
Easts - young talent needs another year
Souths - look out 2024 if they keep that team
GPS - need to strengthen key positions
UQ - didn’t turn up most weeks
Sunnybank - not up to this standard
Norths - same story. Lack depth

2019 - Brothers had 9 teams in the GFs including 2 playing each other in sixth grade.

I believe they won 4/8. But happy to be corrected.

From the first grade team, there are 4 or 5 players who lost the GF v UQ who will be looking for redemption this Sunday.

I meant a subtle jab at Wests who only have 1 team
Wests actually have 3, Brothers have included Tuckey Cup which is a subbies comp both wests 6ths grades Wyatt and Normanby cup are playing in GF’s this weekend also with Colts 2 narrowly missing out after the bell last week. Slowly building each year with more teams in the finals series.

also for the Filth: Dobbins in the Colts final, Usher on bench for Prems.
Also interestingly Will Wilson and Dom Fraser in 3rd grade Final.

My 5cents for tomorrow - the game will be won/lost in the dark arts of the front row, Brothers scrummaging has been consistently strong the past 5 games allowing their backs to get front foot ball. West scrum has been inconsistent all season but when its on, its on and their backs convert it into points.

If Eloff and Dobbins are coming off the bench this could be a genius move or one the loses them the game - unsure if Lopeti Faifua is available as he was named in the Forced team who played the Cheetahs yesterday in South Africa.

Brothers 12+

Agree - this will be an intriguing aspect to watch and could be key for both teams. It will interesting to see how the Brothers loosehead is policed especially, in both semis it took the officials a few scrums before they stopped tolerating Brother pulling the opposing tight head down on engagement ( Sheriiff was incensed by it last week). If the Filth can get away with it again, it will be a long day at the office for Wests.

Faifua is not playing.

Did anyone head out to Ballymore today? Thoughts on new set up?

A lineout maul try to brother's shortly after means it's not too significant, though Creighton surely wouldn't have missed the easier conversion if Wilson's try was given.
