Unfortunately I have most of my possessions in storage in anticaption of moving house. When I'm settled, hoping to crank things up again.

On paper great side but mentally we were not ready. Was an absolute credit to the club and all players involved that they were able to make it through the season and finish 3rd. A very underrated performance in my opinion.

Good point. I still today think that some of the blokes that went through that horrible experience were ever quite the same again. I guess when you go through something like that it's quite life changing. I can't even comprehend what it would've been like.

*Nods* absolutely....I have seen uncensored photos of some of the carnage in Bali and some of the stuff those boys must have witnessed was just sickening almost beyond comprehension. Any experience of that magnitude has got to leave an indelible mark on your psyche. I definitely think it was a credit to the courage and determination of the lads that they made it to the top 3 that year....against such adversity and personal battles to heal mental scars from such a horrific experience, I think the boyd did themselves and their supporters proud Very Happy
