Coach Danny Comments.......
Well guys, we did just enough to secure the minor premiership, not to mention a home semi final. Congratulations boys on finishing with that title. We were up against a massive wind and a team that played the perfect first half. If you weren't there you wouldn't believe we only had the ball for a total of nine tackles in the first half. Hats off to Hall for a great half of footy. The second half we showed character and came back to only loose by 14 points. What can I say? Dezzy was simply outstanding in defence and Scott Irwin great on that left edge in the second half when we finally got some ball. I would like to than JT, Beerey and Marchy for making themselves available. Tough game this week playing Hall again at home. Plenty of work to do, especially for Sarah and Wendy having to put the boys back together. Thankyou girls for your efforts this year, being at every training session and every game. Lets get a big crowd to the game next week and see if we can get one step closer to the Grand Final.Go Rovers. See you training.
Coach Bluey Comments...............
We showed plenty of character to fight back from 26-0 at half time. We have managed to secure the minor premiership, but will need to lift and come together as a team next week. We cannot dwell on the fact that out injury toll is high. The next couple of weeks will define our season. Chins up guys and lets show Hall what we can do with an even share of the ball next week. See everyone at training on Tuesday. Go Rovers.

Canberra Waterboy Comments..........
Stress levels excessively high again for old blokes, but what a gutsy performance. You blokes showed everyone, yet again, what courage, commitment and fitness can achieve. There is no doubt that it was those qualities that won us the minor premiership and a home semi.
Now, I want to say a little more about commitment and courage. On our bench this week were a small number of guys who put on the colours because they were asked to, because they may have been needed. They did so despite injuries and in the knowledge they may not get a run. These fellows are loyal club men. They have been key men in putting the club back on the paddock and, without them and others like them, this season would probably not have happened. So, thanks guys. I have no doubt the club appreciates you and I know the club needs you.
