    I think there is less money in cricket here than what everyone thinks with regards to players getting paid!! We woofers only pay 2 blokes, coach/curator.. We are a proud mob, and to have guys walk up wanting to play with us is a testiment to the current playing group! Good luck to all other clubs with recruiting, it only takes one or two blokes to bring a few more along..at the end of the day, if ya love the game it shouldn't matter where ya play, what grade ya play, as long as ur with ya mates and ya havin fun, ya goin alright I woulda thought?

    Enough of the shit lets get this draw out and get into it!

    Thanks BBTC, you've illustrated my point perfectly. All those talented juniors and yet you still go and chase players from other clubs (oh sorry, that's right, they all approached you). How many of those kids do you think are happy to see Tonkin, Ball, Klein-Boonschate and Saker walk into the club?

    Not only that, your coach said in the paper the other day that Saker would only play around his footy commitments. So which one of those former juniors makes way for him every couple of weeks when he makes himself available to play?

    Your "good coach", "good structure" and "good culture" don't sound that great to me. I'm glad I don't play at your club.

    But hey, good luck to you. Everyone's entitled to their own opinion.

    Just to clear up a few things in regards to Lavi Panthers. No one has told Trent Ball or anyone else that they are not welcome. We are disappointed that they have decided not to play at Lavi Panthers. Also Spike does still have friends at Lavi Panthers, including myself.

    If anyone's got the shits they might go elsewhere or not play, some might just get over it, everyone is different and no one should have a go at them for it.. I think ur frustrated with the position of ur club and a little annoyed at the depth of others.. My view only, take that as u will?

    How good is this......... I didn't think people in Albury Wodonga actually cared this much about local cricket.
    Bravo to the lot of you (us).

    Well it ain't far away boys !!!! Very interested in Erdl's comments on the news last night. Saying East will be the big improvers because of their kids from last year. Don't forget about the imports they have . Very handy !!!! I was disappointed that he said Raiders will struggle . This is not aimed at Raiders but if the CAW think they will struggle then why put them up at this stage. What I want Raiders to do is stick it up them and win a few games.
    The big question is how well will Wodonga gel this season?

    Last years side and what grade I think they'll play
    Roberts: -Gone
    Garvey: WCC JUNIOR -1st grade
    Jackson:-Coach-1st grade
    Beattie: WCC JUNIOR-1st grade
    King:NO IDEA-1st grade
    Rogalski:WCC JUNIOR-2nds
    Craig:WCC JUNIOR -Gone
    Dalbosco:WCC JUNIOR-1st grade
    Hales:WCC JUNIOR -1st grade
    Craig:WCC JUNIOR -Gone
    Collins: WCC JUNIOR-2nds
    Robinson:WCC JUNIOR -1st grade
    Hutchinson:WCC JUNIOR-2nds

    This years side (in no particular order)
    Tonkin
    Ball
    Jackson
    Beattie
    Garvey
    King
    Dalbosco
    Saker
    Hales
    KB
    Robinson
    Booth (12th man)
    All players come and go so maybe it's all a storm in a teacup???

    Good luck to their 3rds (oops district a grade) playing at Willow, any truth it won't be ready til after christmas? I'm sure the batting decks at Baranduda and Wodonga Raiders cricket club's would be more accomodating than trying to field 3rd and 4th rate sides in the district comp.:confused:

    Let's leave Wodonga alone for a day or two. Happen to see Belvoir having a practice match yesterday. A few new players on the ground. Not sure who they played against . Belvoir look a lot younger then last year . Just wondering if any others had practice games.??? Not many sleeps to go for the real thing !!!

    so i have heard on the grapevine that brandon purtell been told he will be paid $50 per game to play at new city, surely this is not true. cricket is a gentlemans game and it would be a disgrace if new city are paying players, especially young players. i have heard rumors that andrew lade gets paid to play at tallangatta as well. if this is true, cricket will become like country football and players will shop themselves to the highest bidder. on anohter note, talking about pre season games, i drove by bilson yesterday arvo and stopped to watch albury in a net session. there was only about 10 blokes there but most if not all were 1st grade players, with hayesy and dan dixon watching. but it was interesting to see sam oconner there batting and bowling. i may have been wrong about him going to east albury!

    Are you sure that it was Sam O'Conner ? Sam has been training at Lavington Panthers all pre-season, as far as I know he hasn't missed one session.

    I'm happy for people to get stuck into Wodonga and to give my club (Lavington Panthers) a much needed break.:)

    Anyone read the profiles in the Border Mail today? How's Robbie Jackson's form? Question - "Who is your most important player?" - Jacko "Probably the coach I would have thought". Ha, talk yourself up why don't you!

    The next question should've been "Who has the biggest ego?" Although he's probably got a couple of competitors for that title in his team nowadays.

    Gotta love a bloke with a bit of self confidence.
