There are 9 of us who have travelled down from Tamworth NSW for a Holiday. Bought tickets two months ago for the game tonight at the G. Being the group weather man, I have forcast a fine evening of 20 degrees, and victory to Australia. Come on Aussie Come on. I can't tell you how much we are looking forward to tonight
