Quoting Leicester City:
Are Olympia Warriors just the Leicester City of Tasmania. A mid table team, no risk of relegation, who one year had a great season that surprised everyone?

That's a bit harsh mate. So you are trying to say that Glen and Nick fluked a premiership.
Remember those player beat Sth Melbourne in Melbourne.

Quoting Really:
What's happened to Alex Holmes hope he's not injured again.
And where's Wally aka Gabriel where and what was he disguised as today.

slight injury should be back soon.
Even with injured players Olympia would not have beaten Zebras not enough strike power.

Quoting next year:
Olympia will rise again next year. The cheque book is to be dusted off and another premiership will be won.

I actually think that's not what they need. Yes they are a mid table side this year but next year they will be a side to beat. Need another Skelnar are they are away. Just my humble opinion.
