Gee the old Top 12. Why not just play an extra round?


Is this a joke??

Just goes to show how much credibility that this competition has.
What a farce !!!

We might be from the bush. but we ain't green

Slammin Sammy Says

Oh yes its a farce and it just got worse.
GWS have decided not to contest the finals meaning the last placed Bendigo Pioneers are into the finals!!!

from the Bendigo Advertiser...

THE Bendigo Pioneers could end the season with just one victory, but they are headed for the TAC Cup finals for the first time in seven years.
Under a new format introduced into the TAC Cup this season, 12 of the 13 teams qualify for finals, with only the wooden-spoon side to miss out.

While the Pioneers are staring at the prospect of finishing last, Greater Western Sydney yesterday announced it would not contest the finals.

That means the Pioneers will play finals for the first time since 2003, when they lost the preliminary final to the Murray Bushrangers by nine points.

Perhaps GWS's sole win (against Bendigo in round 6) should be taken off them.


I am going to watch Dandenong vs GWS at Shepley Oval on Saturday.
