Why was the pre match discussion closed so early?
With 4 hrs to go isnt it still pre match?

Just in time to (maybe) enjoy GF week.

Plenty of people in their supporter gear today, in Redfern itself and at Bunnings Alexandria.

All the Bunnings staff were also in red & green for the occasion :wink:

When speaking of the champions, one stands above the rest
Of glories old and records proud, when often put
to test
Of fine traditions, history, that others cannot best
They wear the Red and Green

Glory, Glory to South Sydney
Glory, Glory to South Sydney
Glory, Glory to South Sydney
South Sydney marches on
They mauled the Balmain Tigers
Slew the Dragons from St. George
The Seagulls and the Mounties next
Were crushed by mighty force
They humbled Parramatta
And the Berries in due course
They wear the Red and Green
Glory, Glory to South Sydney
Glory, Glory to South Sydney
Glory, Glory to South Sydney
South Sydney marches on
They plucked the Western Magpies
Slashed the Newtown bag of blue
The Eastern Suburbs Rooster crowed
And then was conquered too
The greatest name in any game
Within South Sydney grew
They wear the Red and Green
Glory, Glory to South Sydney
Glory, Glory to South Sydney
Glory, Glory to South Sydney
South Sydney marches on

How did we blow out so much - is someone else out

All I’m hoping for is to be able to walk out of the ground tonight saying that we played our best footy. If that’s not good enough to win, then fair enough, but jeez I’d be disappointed to have to be talking about beating ourselves in a prelim final with errors and dumb footy. Come on boys!

Nervous and not expecting the win.

BUT

The hope is still there.

Good luck everybody in this vast Bunnies family.

Just on our way in Narwee it’s starting to spit with rain

I would say many think Penrith start fast and we can’t go with them.

Gee’s I think we’ll win. What’s up with you lot?

This team has shown a special quality that has got us this far and I honestly think that same quality will get us all the way.
Penrith may be just a little too confident. No one has picked us. No one can see how Penrith can lose.
I’m sure I’ve seen this movie before?

Good luck tonight guys.

This sounds weird to some people but I always consider this as my favourite game to win. To earn that right to experience GF week knowing you will be there. More important than winning the GF for me as a fan.

Enjoy the occasion. Your team has done a great job with guys that a lot of people dont know too much about, except your own fans of course.

About to leave for the game and I’m anxious as hell. I’ve taken a valium already to try and calm the nerves. :pensive:

We’ve got this.

( and that’s coming from me .
I’m more realistic and negative than positive and opportunistic… and did not think we were contenders after the Manly game)

I am quietly confident.

Edit : it was great to see fellow Souths supporters wearing our colours walking around Penrith Westfield today.
