LMAO this is hilarious, and definitely a great comeback from the animals after we got them with how Animals eat their food ;)
Talking Points- 30 June 2013
For all the criticism he has received in recent years, including from myself, credit must be given where credit is due to Wallabies coach Robbie Deans for the way he has our national rugby team playing at the moment. Sure it isn’t the most prettiest or toughest rugby ever seen but the heart that each of the players has and the pride shown to the national jersey is something that hasn’t been seen in a while and will ensure that no matter who we are playing, whether the Lions or the All Blacks, it will always be an arm wrestle. You can’t coach that sort of thing, but you can instill it in a side and it seems Deans has done that here.
Speaking of teams and players, I feel for Mick Potter at the Wests Tigers. He’s under pressure despite the team posting a fourth straight win and some very exciting and entertaining play being shown by his boys especially Tim Simona who I reckon will definitely be an option for Origin for NSW in the future. All this because of Boardroom politics and the needs of a superstar. Never has any club been less than one player on it and the fact doesn’t change here now. The Tigers have shown this year that while it will take time, they can win without Benji long term consistently and therefore if he isn’t happy and decides to go, the coach who is creating great footy and inspiring the youngsters, should not be made to leave just so he can stay- that is not logical and for the talent he is, Benji is not bigger than the game that made him- not that he thinks that, but it seems some of the board members at the Tigers if reports are correct do.
Finally good on Mark Webber for leaving Red Bull F1 to go to Le Mans Racing. You’ve done Australia proud over the years and can leave with a lot of joy at what you’ve made F1 in this country during your time in the sport. I hope that your time at Porsche will be fruitful and you will be respected for the great driver you are. It shows quite a lot of class that for the most part, you managed to survived at RB for so long given the pandering to Vettel and the lack of support from team heads, even if you had support from the owner of RB.
A great article right here on a very great man- not only because he’s led my team from the social wilderness into the powerhouse it is today, but I admire him so much because he is all about values and people first- he’s instilled a great legacy into a great club and into the hearts of it’s followers and I wish Todd all the best with the NRL and I know he will make the game a better place.
Thanks TG for everything, you’ve inspired me as a person and will always be remembered as a Bulldogs great!

Ok so the media is today running with a story that says that Kurtley Beale & James O’Connor were out till 4am while in camp- then they say that it was a rest day the next day, they weren’t drinking and they had been at a party involving their Super Rugby team after their match against the Lions. I’m sorry, but when did staying up late becoming a crime- the Wallabies have said they broke no rules and I agree while it isn’t the best image- I know I have and many others have come home late from an event and gone to work the next day. it’s not newsworthy and I really feel for James and Kurtley that their lives are under such scrutiny - give the guys a break and let young men be young men- as long as they ain’t breaking any laws or being disorderly, then I say there’s no reason to report what a person is doing, let them have their life.
Speaking of rules- I totally agree with last night Trent Merrin and Justin Hodges being sinbinned in State of Origin 2- they knew that if you threw a punch you’d be gone and they did, so they deserve what they got. On the other hand however, I am astounded and quite baffled as to why Greg Bird and Brent Tate both got sent. Tate was just letting some frustration out and it never says in the rule book you can’t push another bloke in a contact sport like rugby league- yeah you’ll get penalised for it, but it isn’t by my knowledge a sin bin offense. Bird ran in to stop the fight and he got given 10 for entering into a situation he didn’t need to be a part of… which I think is quite a joke. I know that we can’t condone fighting for it isn’t good for young boys to see and emulate- I totally agree with that, but I also agree that we can’t let young boys see that the only way to deal with your emotions is to not deal with them at all, which is, in some way what the refs were telling the players last night.Young men need to learn to deal with their emotions in the right way- and whether that’s with the occasional wrestle with other men or talking them through, both of these need to be offered and in this game, neither was IMO.
Finally the circus of the Labor Party finally came to a head this week with the announcement of Kevin Rudd as returning to the leadership last night after beating Julia Gillard in a ballot. Personally, I’d just like us to head to an election so that we, the people of Australia, could finally get a chance to make a decision (something that hasn’t happened the last 3 times) and choose the leader we want for our country (I thought that was how it was meant to work in a democracy?) Let’s hope the election is called sooner rather than later for all our sakes and so the rest of the world isn’t laughing at our ineptitude a moment longer.
I love this article, it represents all that makes the Western Sydney Wanderers so great. It shows how success begins with support and humility to seek the advice of others around you. It shows how you should never give up on your dreams and it proves that when you care for those around you, they will be there for you always!
I’m so proud to be a Wanderers fan & even though I won’t be at GF tomorrow as I’m in Canberra, I will be cheering the team on all the way from here and hope that this legacy can keep growing in the years ahead - GO WANDERERS!!!
So yeah big news, I’m homeward bound in 2013…well & a little further south LOL as I join the Canberra-Goulburn (CG) NET Team.
Bit different to last year in that the team in 4 Aussies and a Kiwi and there are three over age of 24 so there’s a fair amount of experience, but as you can see from photo above, we are already getting on really well as a team and having a lot of fun.
I’ll be living in Goulburn which is a regional country town in NSW and we got to meet our contact person (guy who looks after us in CG). He’s so amazing and organised, we got manuals with everything in them we need for year, so awesome!
I’m really excited to be part of a team that gets to travel across the South Coast, Western Region and Southern Highlands of NSW as well as the ACT spreading Jesus’ word to many young people. I also feel so comfortable with the vision of the Archdiocese for youth in the region and that we get to do many different things this year from overnight retreats to day retreats, youth groups, prayer rallies and even some work in universities!
In terms of the community I’m also really looking forward to the family feel of being in a country area and also being part of the Catholiclife setup (we are like volunteer staff, getting induction, training & can visit office and hang out with other staff).
Please keep praying for me, I’m praying for you all too and will write again soon :-)
The following are the boats at the Sydney NYE celebration with the theme of 2012-13 being embrace. I think this best sums up my year in a nutshell.
I’ve embraced being proud of who I am and my talents, embraced the love God has for me, embraced just how amazingly I can change others lives and embraced the fact I’m not perfect but if I work as hard as I can to do the best I can, that’s what counts.
Thanks to everyone who has made this year so special and allowed me, like these boats to set sail for an amazing future and to have so much fun on the journey!
I’m so excited for this next year as I keep growing and living life and I hope you all have an amazing 2013, keep smiling and know that no matter what, this life is meant for living!
