Uni men are on top in all three of their leagues. There must be a real Buzzzzz around the club!


Doubtful reserves don't reckon.


Equal points, fair to say top! Don't you think?


Um no . 2nd on goal difference is 2nd not top .


Put into context your fool, when people talk about top, they might be talking about top four.

Then say top 4 . The comment was all 3 teams were "top " which they are not fool !!!! Oh and its you not your .

Question could a marquee player be used in the last game of the season, say if the title was up for grabs??


No, rules don't allow a marquee player in 3 rd round of home NAD away fixture

The Zebras defence is often questioned. Yesterday was a case in point! Watched the most week against Clarence. Seemed they all wanted to be strikers! Clarence looked better than they were due to a lack of defensive shape from Zebras. Play your positions boys! Watched South v Devonport and Rangers v Kingborough. The winners had a sense of positional play. Also watched Olympia v Knights; regretting that decision.

If you weren't at the game You should watch the highlights on u tube. Who did mark allsopp? For me the wrong player was on him. Needed a player with a bit of height who could man mark and jump inthe air with him. The problem the zebras have is upfront. The formation is not working. Maybe a 4 3 1 2formation is better suited with McKeown and lLeszczynski playing together and Stone right behind them. If McKeown fails to score goals there play Hoti there and use his pace

I don't care that Zebs did it last year - my point is should it happen at all given it's potential to affect the outcome of the league.

After all how many extra punters came out to check him out?


Under the v league rules I think all clubs can use 1 marquee player for 1 game. So whilst its allowed in the rules a club that has the resources to bring a marquee player over can't be blamed for the potential impact it may have on league standings.I guess its up to all v league club presidents to veto it if they wish.

I was there and it seemed a larger crowd than normal....not sure on actual numbers. Good to see support from other NPLclubs and supporters.
