    Maybe it was their best 11 available. Long drive after work from the Central Coast. Some could even work shift work

    Rubbish, If you think a NL1 is going to win the Australia Cup, you're dreamin.
    If I was the Belswans coach I would be going all out to gain promotion rather than trying to win this competition or get to the next round have my best players get injured and be out for weeks.

    I literally said that realistically only one of the A-league clubs can win the whole thing.

    Once again though by your logic what?s the point of the lower teams even entering it if they don?t have some kind of ambition to try and go on a bit of a run?

    If they are from the central coast, they won't have jobs. Maybe they were unavailable as they wouldn't give up their place in the dole line

    No, won't be playing for another two weeks.

    Lyall Peacock is being re-turfed so no other option but to play at LMRFF at the earliest availability.

    In addition to their league schedule, were not able to play before Easter.

    Not ideal, but out of our hands unfortunately.

    It's always up to the host clubs discretion. It's not illegal but does seem a bit of a gee up.

    It's smart but. Croatia would bring a decent crowd along hoping for an upset. Why not put some money into your coffers when you can.
