    Thought since the season is done forvus in 2018 we could look back at moments that still bring a smile to our face.

    For me the 3 best moments were

    1 Ponga length of the field try VS the Titans.

    2 when everything looked gone Buhrers cross field kick to SKD to score in the corner and win us the game vs the Tigers in Tamworth .

    3 Griffins huge hit against the Roosters.

    Ponga's try against Manly round 1. Spent the off season hoping he could live up to the hype. Jumped up from the recliner and saluted.
    Not an actual moment but the effort from the 3 Rooster recruits all season was great. Thought there might have been a possibility they came for the cash.
    Finally DSaf's game yesterday. Shed the promising tag and stamped himself as 1 of the comps best props.

    A bit of an odd one, but I went to the opposed session at Lyle Peacock oval at Toronto and saw a session where the plan was obviously to practice using Ponga as a playmaker, and I've never seen anything like it. Time after time Ponga ran to the line with Fitz and Cory Denniss either side of him, and Rossy out on the wing, and Ponga decided to either pass to Fitz, pass to Cory, throw a long, flat pass to Rossy, or run himself - and the defence of Jones, Naden and Musgrove and Meaney were made to look like under 7s time after time.
    An hour after that I was posting on here that Ponga would be the 5/8 Brown is looking for, and I don't think anyone could have seen that and not thought the same.

    1) Round 1 field goal win and the elation at the ground, Instant booming Newcastle Chant. Welcome to Newcastle new guys!
    2) Can't recall the round but there was a parade of I believe our 97 winning team, as they walked around in front of the Andrew Johns stand another booming Newcastle chant erupted, unprompted. Goosebumps.
    3) Going to games ever time with an actual hope of walking away having watched a victory.
