2012 Pre-Season

The Blues were unashamedly talking the talk about 'Top 4' through February 2012, and the excitement was palpable as we moved into the pre-season. 4 losses from our 4 games, including one scoreless half and a smashing against the Lions, raised the obvious question...'What does this mean?'. Every chance it could mean nothing. Game summaries below:
