    GO LIONS!! forget what happened and restart your season this friday, you can beat the brumbies :)

      Nico... Not a bad team at all. Just hope they can start pulling it together and sort out the minor glitches. This season is far from over and they might surprise a few hopefuls. Especially the toothless ones from down under by the mountain if you catch my drift. Go Lions!!!

      Nico - 2012-04-24 20:37

      @Tokolos, yeap, season is only half way, many things can still happen especially with the other teams that is starting to pick up injuries.

    Always rated Mapoe, but he seems have gone off the radar a bit. Hopefully this is the start of a good comeback. Come on, Lions!!!
