      I was just reading the article and was thinking “What is the point?” Hardly anything relevant to talk about but you found something worthwhile. Good luck, it will be a great couple of days and well worth the trip no doubt. Souths will barely play any of their stars but I will be looking forward to getting a glimpse of the new young junior talent Souths have brought to the club, as well as some of the younger guys from last year.

      It is the perfect venue to show case up and coming young talent, all the open spaces and speed of the game really play to their advantage. I am especially looking forward to seeing Kalyn Ponga showcase his talents under these circumstances. Enjoy, and just know that I for one will be envious! 😉

    • You will definitely enjoy it. I went there last year and the atmosphere is incredible. Sunday morning took the crowd a while to warm up (with all the sore heads from the night before), but it was a great couple of days with the mates.

  1. In the last 3 Auckland Nines, Souths have always played more top line players than most.
    At least 1 Burgess brother has always played.
    John Sutton has played in all 3
    Keary played in 14
    Adam Reynolds played in 2015, this year he was in the ALL Stars so he pulled out late.
    Gray, Goodwin, Turner Clark, Tyrrell and our main Hooker has always played.
    Luke in 14 and 15
    McInness and Cook in 16.
    In 2007 I bet that most of them above will play also plus our new buys will also.

  2. bet the drags wont play combined country again this year seeing country beat them last year trial lol..believe that

    • Wrong again half-wit.

      St.George played 4 trials last year – against Wynnum Manly, Souths, Warriors & Central Qld Capra’s.

      I also remember you saying that Warriors would flog Saints in that trial. Wrong Again….

    • Believethis,why don’t you follow instructions ,the Dr advises you on your visit and the pharmacist reminds you when processing your script ,, you could really hurt yourself and everyone here at ZT wouldn’t want this ,,, we enjoy your input and support all types ,but you must start to help yourself ,before the white suits arrive unexpectedly and take you away for good ,,,

      • If euthanasia was legalized in Australia, believethat would be a perfect candidate, and the reason is for the benefit of the greater community.

  3. why would certain teram supporters even worry about reading anything this season .. those teams wont even go near winning the premiership .. this is a known fact .. drags…knights..mutts..eels..panthers..chooks …rabbits…just to name a few so theres definately nothing to read all season foir those fans …believe that

    • I heard EBay is having a sale on nooses. Borrow your parents credit card and buy one, considering you don’t know how to make one yourself.

  4. Using an image of Bryce Cartwright on an article about “playing pre-season” – classic! He is certainly out there training hard!
