Yep. Played that one game late in the year after getting over OP.

Then there was the young Stingray recruit who played the one game last year.
Can't even remember his name.

But.. is he really going to help us win the game? Is he going to be picked to play finals?

If the answer is no (as it should be)
Shouldn't we be picking blokes like Acres/Dunstan?!

Acres might give us 20 touches and a goal.

Battle will be lucky to get 10 touches.


Be bold lad ...he is the future.

Second fave after Galactica!

Well done Saintsationalists! An absolute smorgasbord of nicks to choose from.

And, may I add, now that Dal is out of the blue and white and back home where he belongs, it's good to see the #26 go to a young up and comer like [Galactica/Battlesnake/Man of War]

(NO disrespect to TC intended; we were all hoping he would make it]

Watched him play a fair bit of footy at Haileybury - a gun at that level - has got footy smarts and can run all day, he's a good kid too. It almost seems a bit surreal that I'll see him running around in a Saints jumper tomorrow - go Josh!

This kid will be given plenty of good advice from the coach and leadership group. I for one, think it's great that youngsters are being blooded into the heat of battle! Can only be a good thing ..... IF it's handled correctly, and Richo has the track record of developing young players.

Seriously - the most obvious Nickname - IMHO - is Mars (Alke or Odin) - the God of Battles(War)

But I have always said, if you need to explain a nick-name - the name is pointless.

So:
Scream it Loud
Scream it Proud

Scream the Battle Cry - BATTLE!!!!! - as he kicks a bag tonight

Wow I haven't heard this for a while... one of the most underrated Aussie bands of the last 30 years, cheers Sainternist


Good to know someone else on the forum is familiar with it and the great Aussie three piece.

I also love the Led Zeppelin classic, but I was referring to a song called 'Battlesick' by the Aussie band The Mark of Cain.

Just a thought but maybe we could call him "Battle" as in Battle.
Very similar to the name he got from his father.
