Well it's here after 4 weeks of intense training, 17 hours of YouTube footage of Buddy Franklin and countless 'team bonding' beers we have finally reach the big day.
It's a sunny day but I recommend a picnic blanket for the wet ground from yesterday's rain. Gates are at noon, bounce is at 2pm. Get there early for the entertainment.
Here's the team photo, proudest moment being in front of the coverted Jet Set Lounge in strip ready to play on the greatest ground in the world, commonly referred to as the 8th wonder of the world, Henson Park.
Absent from photo: Joel Beeson - I hope he'll be there today he's a gun; Damien Lovelock - refuses to come to training, that's just detail to him, not interested; Captain Dan Sultan - we may have encouraged a few too many beers and or tequilla the night before at the Meanies show.
