Yeah, brilliant. Neither of them played actually, I’m assuming that’s the point you’re trying to get at? Clutching at straws. Wow.

- shortest period in the state wide league when you get kicked out of the competition at the end of the season.

No relegation at the end of the season so that means we will be in it for 4 years minimum whereas your mob were only in for 3 years. Not the brightest are you...

Quoting really:
what no comments from knights and Clarence supporters lol.

Well done knights proved all the pundits wrong that Clarence deserve to be in the npl over you .

Roll on 2019 when we see you back in the comp and Clarence relegated in 2020


Geez, you must have the memory of a goldfish! Knights proved for 3 years they didn't deserve to be in the NPL, and were rightfully kicked out by FFT (not Clarence, shockingly).

I'd make the argument that Knights proved over the 3 years that Clarence deserved to be in the original V-League based off their on-field performances prior to then. Obviously that decision cost them all their best players, who have since remained at their newer NPL clubs, and the rest is history on both sides for these 2 (social) clubs.

Move along please.
