IT'S FINALLY HAPPENING!

Postby Footy Chick » Fri Jan 19, 2018 11:24 am

It's been the age old question that has remained unanswered for nearly 10 years....

Can a D6 side beat a D1R side?

On behalf of the Houghton FC, I am extremely excited to announce that we're about to find out! (although in this case, it'll be a D7 side)

Houghton will host the Tea Tree Gully reserves side on March 4th at Aldi Arena (times to be announced)

Will be definitely worth heading on down for a look so we can finally put this argument to rest ;)

I'm sooooooo looking forward to this!

I think we had talks with TTG for our A's and B's to play their B's and C's also. Not sure if it's happening. I think their A grade is playing an interstate side the same day. Unless Houghton got in first

Won't solve anything, like all trials both side will have 48 players unavailable. Houghton will win this, Full strength TTG would win easily.

TTG run very deep as a club and their stocks have been bolstered plenty this year. Would've thought that this is a massive challenge for us, but at the end of day it's literally just a run around. Who really cares.

One wouldn't expect a virtual newbie to understand the potential significance, glad to see you're so excited about the upcoming season too..I hope you're not part of the cheer squad.

The bigger question is, can you get yourself match fit to sneak onto the bench in the first game? Since joining the SANFL bureaucracy you've been on the Tommy Javor diet and emulated the Tommy Javor physique.

If true, and given his height deficiency, he must be starting to look like one of these:

I've seen that diet first hand.....pretty impressive

Not one. Like 0-18. Now that's straight out super funny stuff.
