  1. Marcus Holt says

    Or the worst!
    Just when the Cats looked like they’d exhumed the Gabba skeleton and thrown away the 4 points up stepped the man for the moment, ice-cool Jimmy Bartel to kick the winning goal and save the day, again. All around the room the chorus rang, “Bartel will kick this”. I relaxed. Then the unthinkable happened, Jimmy missed!!!
    But, it’s OK, there’s still a minute left and ……HARRY!! On his left! This time! The Cats are gonna win, the equilibrium of the universe will be restored. The best swingman in the league won’t miss from there.
    What’s that?
    He’s going the Stevie J route too?
    Is that wise?
    You’re a beautiful kick Harry, just go backl and dob it with a drop punt.
    Holding my breath!
