They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
This is a special week on the Australian Calendar where we mark the anniversary of the proudest moment in our National History – the landing of the ANZAC’S at Gallipoli in 1915. We use this day not only in memory of that battle, but all Australian war time involvement. It is a great honour for our top rugby league players to play on this special day and throughout the weekend. We see these young men in uniforms go into “battle” in our great sporting arenas and reflect upon their deeds.
At the same time we remember other young men, in other uniforms going into the battles of wars in far off lands in years past and present . We reflect upon the national significance of their deeds and wonder to ourselves, “Will we never learn.”
Dragons vs Roosters
One thing that can be said for the Dragons so far this year, they are consistent. Have not looked like striking any sort of form at all this year. One would think that with Wayne Bennett arriving to coach them next year, they would be trying to show why he should keep them on the playing roster for next year. Missing Mark Gasnier is a blow yes but they have had little success this year even with him in the side. Can’t be used as an excuse.
The Roosters’ loss last week against the Knights was probably a good thing. Players that had mixed success last year may have been getting to high in the sky with this season’s early successes. Showed in the first half that sixty percent of possession is useful in building a lead. They also showed they may be fragile if starved of the ball.
