Good to see two hard-working teams in the final. South are without doubt all class;this year, however, Eagles and Knights have worked hard for a final's berth. Looking forward to a great match. May the best TEAM win.

& Eagles beat Taroona while Olympic lost....WHAT"S YOUR PAONIT.Quoting Anonymous:
#11 Both finalists have lost to Olympia this year in the league for the only 2 games they have won. Seems to me Olympia is keeping their nerve. Chris hey still needs to avoid relegation. Being second last is not much to brag about. Oddly enough Olympia made the final last year with Previdi and finished second last in the league. So I do not agree with your statement. Olympia will finish above the Knights in the final 2012 standings table. In essence Olympia have kept their nerve.

If any coach deserved to make the final it was Chris, you deserve it.
Good luck mate, I wish you all the best.

Intresting game this saturday Knights .v . Eagles Knights currently second bottom cannot afford to drop point and Eagles second have to stay in touch with South should be a cracker.

Intresting probelm for the coaches the week after they play Friday and saturday then the final on the Monday i think the Knights can afford to rest some players they have the wood on the Lions and really are not going to win the league the Cup is there big shot.

The eagles on the other hand are still in with a chance to win the league and play Zebras.

Be Intresting to see what happens one would think the Team with the fresher players on the monday have a better chance.

Good to see someone else other than South with a chance to win a trophy

no summer or statewide cups for South in 2012 but the league title looks more then 'gettable'.
