in x 2

Not confident in this one what with a make shift team and the nux have added a bit of quality by the looks of it.

Anyway, excuse for a short break

2-1 them, crowd - NFI

Loss

I’m not sure why, it’s just been a really long time since they’ve beat us and they’re coming off a morale boosting win with some momentum. 

Short turn around, key players suspended/injured and travel will **** us I reckon. 

I expect the Nix to come out firing.

Just watched the interview with Raul.

Thought I saw our new u21 signing John Roberts in background. 

Anyone know if any other Youth players went to NZ?

Not confident about this given the short turnaround. On the other hand, despite their win last week, Wellington really are ****.

Well the Nix played on the same day as us so equal on that count.

we have Cornthwaite and Herd both suspended so we have to have at least 1 fresh player in Hamill. Plus Risdon should come in at RB.

Am thinking back to the S4 R27 ToD to Wullington. It was an experience and a half, from start to finish. Truly the best away trip I've ever been on. 

Hopefully the travelling RBB crowd will have a similar experience. Weather forecast looks okay which a good start. Enjoy.

Guys I dont know about dis one but I'm going 3-1 win I think the win for nix last week will make them a little too cocky  and we will comeback firing  they will equalise first then we fight back to score three goals I believe gombau would of put a drilling inside those players head about last game against Adelaide conceding that late goal but I think we're got quality all over the park just need to be more clinical upfront COYW ****off nix  go****a sheep, come on you boys in red and black forca WSW 

For us scoring 3 goals is quite ambitious this season... we haven't scored any more than 2 goals :lol:

Nux don't make it easy for us whenever we play them.

It was a great experience, that trip!

Sigh!

Good luck to those in the Away Bay -  hope you enjoy it!

Who knows - you might get the same escort to the ground as we did - a friendly, flag waving Nix supporter as I recall.:lol:

So far every dangerous Wellington attack has come from us giving them the ball.

Burns will cut us up when he comes on. We need a multiple goal lead before then

We looked great...

 

In the first 10 minutes...

 

In our own half... 

 

Now we don't even look great there. Not looking great so far. They're getting closer and closer to a goal while we look more and more toothless
