Starting favorites this week. Our biggest test this year so far in my opinion. Win this week and we go into the derby 3 on the trot. Very very important as derbies are very physical.

A good swap - like for like with Tucker returning to the team because of Balic's injury.

I hope Darcy goes well on Saturday. It will be interesting to see how he goes in our new rejuvenated team. Certainly he will notice an increase in pace from his first two games.

I am really pleased that Lyon seems to sticking with the same team unless someone is injured.

It should be a good game.

If you haven't been to one before, it isn't great.

Awful food , far too expensive and over crowded. 
The drinks are outrageously priced.

I notice that most sports commentators are picking us to win this one.

I think I like it better when they write us off than when we are favourites.

Still, it demonstrates that we have managed to change their perceptions of us in just two short games.

Well done Freo.

I can't see any reason why Freo can't win this one based on recent form and North's lack of. 

I'm enjoying the effort of the team. A complete team with all the blokes giving great effort. I'm enjoying the progression of Hamling, Cam and Kersten.
