Decent read regarding Penrith Emu's future.
I start this article with a cricket story, as you do. A few years ago, I was at a university cricket club, one of…www.theroar.com.au
I have no idea why they didnt shift to Subbies straight away. I can only imagine how dispiriting it must have been to get on to that bus every second week knowing you're about to have your rear end handed to you.
I wish them every success in Subbies and hopefully they can now build uon one or two positive seasons to get numbers back where they should be.
Possibly - but from what the article above states, the fully amateur nature of subbies may have a greater impact than it's location to other clubs.Would the Emus arrival dilute the Mountain men at all? From my drunken bus trip memories Lapstone is only 5 minutes up the hill from Penrith?
I did see a few players in that Emus team that were familiar names from Subbies. Not sure if they stay without getting paid or go back to the previous clubs who are a bit more successful.
