I'd have thought that was even shorter hand for the MCG only.

I suspect Knowler doesn't get out much.
I expect a Swans or Cricket fan may correct me, but Rugby fans usually refer to it as "oh fudge that"

Is Kalani Thomas the young scrum half who came on in the second half of the Force match? If so, he looked way out of his depth in that game. He’ll get eaten alive by Aaron Smith. Yeah he's got huge wraps, but I much prefer Sorovi. Technical question... is it 'wraps' or 'raps'? Not sure. I was refer...
