AN article from Gorilla in the Forum Sevens Grand Final between the Bluebags and the Warriors
JOURNEYMAN players are common in rugby league ? players with long careers, moving from club to club. They don?t stand out like the stars and pin-up players, but each week they?re on the field, mainly remembered by the fans from the clubs they played for, rather than for stellar performances. Steady, reliable players.
EVERY season there?s a couple of rising stars who burn bright in their first few games or season, who the media compare with the stars of the past. A young player might be called ?the next Meninga or Johns?. In years to come they?ll talk about ?the next Fittler or Lockyer?. Sometimes these players achieve that mantle, sometimes they burn and crash. The game is littered with players who never fulfilled the media?s expectations when they were bright and shiny and full of promise.
WHEN I was a little country fellah, half-time entertainment at grand finals was usually a march past, around the showground (footy field), by the junior teams closely followed by the local brownies.
?I?M hit, knocked groggy. The feeling is like being half awake and half dreaming. And your awake half knows what you?re dreaming about?..you see neon, orange and green lights blinking. You see bats playing trumpets, alligators playing trombones, and snakes are screaming. Weird masks and actor?s clothes hang on the wall.?

2ND February 2003-02-02 Hi everyone ! This is my blog (web log) !
Angela the marketing assistant came to training and asked if anyone wanted to make a blog ? Everyone pointed at me and Dicko went and told her what my name is.
So here I am, dear diary ?
Angela came to the unit (sponsors is Megaplex) and showed me how to turn on and where to tipe.
Had my first ?beep test? today and Channel 8 was there. I guess they called it a beep test because they have to beep out all the swearing ? Retch was so out of breath, he could hardly swear. The beeptest is f***ing hard. can I say that ?
GORILLAI weighed the wedding tackle the other night. After having a shower I was admiring myself in the mirror, just window shopping, when I spied the bathroom scales on the floor.
WHEN you're fighting for your life, up against a wall with someone advancing on you, I want a mate beside me. And not just any old mate, no stoner-pal or drinking buddy, I want a mate who is a also a forward !
