      Thank you @JC ; pretty predictable loss to the 'hoppers. Neither Fyfe nor Dunkley and bad selection policy (what has changed?) means the cows will be watching the finals from the sidelines. We will be in good company though. :)

      Thanks for the write up JC.
      Wow that was a very close encounter & very happy the Uglies got over the line.
      The Oil’s -King of the Mountain might get a run after reading this :)
