Teams: Australia & Newcastle United
A 100%-fit Allan/McKernan rotation would almost have the Blues in the eight next year alone - add Campo, Ratten, Whitnall, Kouta, Manton, Hulme, Franchina and other walking wounded on top of the best 2 kids in the land and best mercenary and all of a sudden things look positively mouth-watering.
If Carlton do lose him they're f***ing stupid and Elliot should move to New Zealand.
"They picked on the wrong man - and the wrong country. It was like pouring petrol onto a fire as far as I was concerned.
There's an old saying that the dog that barks loudest never bites. They did a lot of barking but we bit them pretty hard. Uruguay's attitude just showed how scared they were of us - it was their last resort."
- Vincenzo Grella, Parma & Australia.
