    tough times, for Lakes, Eagles, Valo and Buds
    Valo rested plenty of players and Buds beat Maitland in both grades on the weekend. I think both will be fine

    Would save a lot of hassle of having to perform consistently over the course of the season.

    Maybe in the context of understanding who was on the pitch at the time, it's often not clear who some of those teams are playing. ie. the magic trial against belswans wasn't the first grade side.

    You Love a good dig. So the NL1 premiers from last year with the premiership won four rounds from the end will all of a sudden drop out of the race, even though they have the same squad as last year plus a couple of additions.

    not sure where the dig was, just my opinion, on players they have recruited. Belswans will win it, there is my prediction.
    GA, i hope the stags replicate it again, and not choke this time, all the best to the Stags this year.

    Any truth to Riley smith heading to Olympic due to an argument in the dressing room?

    Could be an interesting season if northern follows through with point deductions for referee abuse.

    Hopefully they do, at least it is for the team where the abuse occurred and not just first grade as was first raised

    I'm hearing Jaffa's world's biggest budget. (at least in nnsw)
    Edgy recruited very well.
    Magic lost a few but can't dis-respect.
    Maitland lost a lot but gained some quality.
    Azurie lost there GK .. big loss but will still push sides first half of season.
    Valo bit of central coast player and overseas recruitment & perhaps local players as well!
    Weston have lost some talent but im sure they will be there abouts.
    Olympic rumors they have recruited some very decent players.
    Cookers quiet but playing the long game have to respect.
    New Lambton Piddington will make a deference but? haven't heard much else .
    Adamstown much the same as last season?
    Lakes very youth orientated.

    just my opinion from socials from out side not looking for bitching just opening up chat on what others have herd or confirmed.
    cheers to no bagging but positive chats in future

    Adamstown have recruited two Japanese players plus a few Olympic throwbacks! Not the same group as last year. Three have moved in but bigger squad (not better) than last year!

    You can?t say that many clubs signed decent players cause there aren?t that many around
