Quoting Ranger:
Maybe we would be slightly better at the top end of the club if we weren't hell bent on trying to win a reserve league no one cares about or follows. Maybe take a look at ourselves we're becoming a joke.


Everyone cares about Northern Championship 1... what are you talking about?!

#6. Don't get too excited.If that was South playing Zebras they would have smashed them again.Zebras were lucky Rangers bought down their social team.There was not once ounce of resistance other than the last 10 minutes and Zebras were pinned in their own half during that little period.Complace ncy is brutal.

Quoting On the Sidelines:
zebras looked far more composed today. Thinking they may have turned a corner, as usually over-run by lower ranked teams. Muller held the middle and finally the front third had better service from the middle. Defence has been woeful these past weeks and midfield absent. Great to see better football today!

Yes the back 4 looked very composed and that was because they had no pressure. Different to South last week and I am sure Davenport will apply pressure in their next game.

Wait until they play like that against the other top 4 clubs on a regular basis before making a comment like that.

Interesting to see the NPL and WNPL have a similar pattern, two northern teams on top! Great for the game in Tas!

Pub team is actually a compliment. Sorry Lino but that team should refund spectators the cost of admission.
They should be ashamed of themselves.
