WITH ONLY 9 AND A BIT WEEKS TO GO, EACH STATE AND TERRITORY ARE FINALISING THEIR RESPECTIVE TEAMS FOR THE '07 NATIONALS.
IT IS BECOMING CLEAR THAT THE VIC'S WILL HEAD INTO THIER HOME NATIONALS AS A SLIGHT FAVOURITE.
AFTER LOOKING AT THE VIC'S TEAM SHEET, IT WILL BE TOUGH TO PRY THE TROPHY FROM THEIR GRASP THIS YEAR.

WITH ONLY 9 AND A BIT WEEKS TO GO, EACH STATE AND TERRITORY ARE FINALISING THEIR RESPECTIVE TEAMS FOR THE '07 NATIONALS.
IT IS BECOMING CLEAR THAT THE VIC'S WILL HEAD INTO THIER HOME NATIONALS AS A SLIGHT FAVOURITE.
AFTER LOOKING AT THE VIC'S TEAM SHEET, IT WILL BE TOUGH TO PRY THE TROPHY FROM THEIR GRASP THIS YEAR.
THE SOUTH AUSSIES HAVE CALLED ON SOME EXPERIENCE THIS YEAR WITH SOME VERY FAMILIAR NAMES HAVING ANOTHER CRACK AT THE TITLE. ACE, DELA, YOULTON, SEEBOLM WILL BE HOPING TO PUT A STOP TO THIS VICTORIAN REVOLUTION AND RECAPTURE FORMER GLORY.
BUT THE BIG TWO SHOULD NOT FORGET ABOUT THE REST OF THE CONTINENT... BIG TALK GOING AROUND ABOUT THE TASSIE BOYS AND THE QUEENSLANDERS. THEY ARE NOT MAKING TOO MANY WAVES AT THE MOMENT, BUT THEY MAY FIGURE IN THE FINAL WASH UP.
WORD FROM THE WEST IS MINIMAL, WHO KNOWS WHO THEY ARE SENDING? BUT I TELL YOU SOMETHING, THEY CAN RAIZE HELL IF THEY WISH TOO. SOME OF AUSTRALIAS FINEST TALENT IS CURRENTLY SIMMERING AWAY OVER IN THE WEST... LETS HOPE THEY SEND THE BEST THAT THEY HAVE.
THE A.C.T. ARE SENDING A SIMILAR TEAM AGAIN THIS YEAR. WITH WOODSY LEADING FROM THE FRONT, THEY ARE HEADING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. THE ACT BOYS ARE ENTITLED TO DO A BIT BETTER THIS YEAR, THEY HAVE CERTAINLY SERVED THEIR APPRENTICESHIP AND SHOULD NOW STEP UP TO THE BIG TIME.
THE NORTHERN TERRITORY ARE GOING THROUGH A RE-BUILDING STAGE AT THE MOMENT. THEY HAVE A MIXTURE OF THE OLD AND AN INJECTION OF THE NEW. I JUST DON'T THINK THEY HAVE THE RIGHT BALANCE YET. BUT THAT IS NOT TO SAY THEY WILL NOT MAKE AN IMPACT... FAR FROM IT, WATCH OUT FOR A YOUNG FELLA NAMED JOSH MILLS, THIS YOUNG MAN WILL BE IN THE AUSTRALIAN TEAM IN A FEW YEARS. HE HAS GOT THE RIGHT STUFF. ALSO, THERE WILL BE POKER IN THE NT CAPTAINS ROOM (MICHAEL CHAN) EVERY NIGHT, JUST SAY TRAVIS SENT YOU.
THE PICTURE SHOULD BECOME A LOT CLEARER ON THE TEAMS FOR THIS YEARS CHAMPIONSHIPS OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF WEEKS. I JUST WISH ALL THE STATES WOULD UPDATE THEIR BLOODY WEB PAGES.

MORE SOON, STAY TUNED.

GO THE BLUES!!!
