Well done Tigers and Storm, bad luck Wobblies

Footy season is over ... give or take the end of the Rugby Championship and October's Rugby League World Cup. The Tigers' story is a great one. My good mate Simon Smith is a die-hard Tigers fan who's been telling me for years that the Tigers were improving and on their way to glory. Eventually he was right and they did it in style ... congratulations, boys.

Melbourne Storm, stung after last year's Grand Final defeat, wanted to be even better in 2017 and they were. Best regular-season results in a long time - lost only 4 games all year. They got the wobbly boot up in the earlier finals and looked beatable ... but yeaterday's effort was a clinical masterclass in high-pressure footy. Great result for a great club and wonderful team. Shame to see the end of the big three as a combination - I hope we get to see more of Billy Slater, Cooper Cronk and Cameron Smith for just a little while. They will be at the World Cup, anyways.

I haven't watched a Wallabies game for a while because they have been poor for a long time - unfit, unskilled and clueless tactically. Not to mention arrogant and un-Australian. But Saturday night's game they actually played with more polish and better effort, which was great to see. Apart from a short period early, they declined to kick the ball pointlessly back to the Springboks back three ... much better control and consistent intensity. Shame about the result, but the ref missing two blatant forward passes will do that for you. Take confidence from that, boys, and better things lie ahead ...

Now, back to making music ... :-)
