Did you know:
That since the 1900 season our success rate verses Northern Suburbs/North Sydney has been 70.81 %. And we added another in the main game on Saturday.
That was the first time since 29th July 2010, the club has beaten Norths in all Grade and Colts games at home.
Manly at home in round 2, was the last time we achieved this feat this season.
With the current standings in the Club Championship we are 4th only 82 points from first place, with 145 points up for grabs next weekend. If we go by the placings of the other three Clubs on the normal numbers multiplied by the 7 teams available, we would have a better rating with 215 points for 7 bonus point wins. There are a lot that can happen with the Club Championship this weekend, but with three bonus point wins to us, and Eastwood win 1st Colts and 2nd grade , Gordon will have to have a bonus point win against Eastwood at T.G. Millner Field to beat us. If they miss the 4th try, they will end on 1394 to our 1397.
