Awesome. I wonder if the afl will regret having a bye this week. Although it has allowed freedom of scheduling this week.

I was hoping to watch the storm game too. Was it not on fta. If it was would have been hugh. Looking forward to the finals campaign. Storm to win another premiership and ratings through the roof in the grand final. Imagine a storm broncos grand final.

Veni, vidi, vici
