Why are people Surprised and Hating on the Wildcats?
Wildcats won 2 championships in a row
Last year they were still competitive and made the finals.
In the off season they recruited Jervis, White, Kay, Norton, and promoted Vague.
So ok sure they've spent money some other teams don't have but that's all they have done. They massively improved their squad.
Jervis > Cooke
Kay > Walker
White > Tokoto
Norton > Kenny
Vague > DKD
Why are people surprised they have been good so far?
NZ obviously do not have the budget they once did.
Even Melbourne lost Prather and Wesley
No need to keep alleging some huge conspiracy involving the refs.
