Nice work there Rids and Nostra - Should be on the way up now.



Cheers mate. Giants will be a force soon enough now. The addition of a couple of older guys in Lumumba and Cloke allows the kids time to develop and become the players we expect.

One thing is for sure, Giants won't be the push overs any more. Time will tell but think the depth across all the lines is much better approaching 2016 than this year and the scoring potential is much improved as well. Just need 1 or 2 guys to break out at new homes in 2016 - BKennedy, JAnderson, CHampton, Leuey, Melksham, JGrant types and we will be pushing up the ladder.

That is the plan anyways  ::)  ::)

Cheers Ringo, think it'd have to go down as one of the most extreme list turnovers (in such a short time) in XV history lol
Cross over the the dark side (WXVs)... New York had close to 30 trades in last years period :o

I have read some of the WXV thread and it is definitely not for me.

Happy to be a part of the other 3 XV comps however. Find it just enough to keep me amused while I am having time off with the website and other commitments etc.

As a Tigers man, you gotta play Jack Graham surely and if youíre not going to, trade him to another who will. 8)

Everyone is available at the right price. Premiership players however might come a little more expensive than most  ::) ::)
