Has anyone else noticed. Didn't he set up another try last night? He seems to be in the right place @ the right time & he uses his body as a tool to get him to where he wants to go. Has grown a leg.

Junior is playing for a contract! Pity he doesn't play like that for the entire year!

Bagging Keithy? Surely you people are not serious? (not referring to you AHX)

Gee of all the players to criticise this season, Keith would be near the bottom of the list.

He is probably burnt out due to playing huge minutes earlier in the season.

Our starting front row of Woods and Galloway was one of the few highlights of this pathetic season.
Galloway's only problem is that he seems to be injury prone but that's life. Hopefully a few months off will do his toe a world of good.
On the bus or under it!

Our problem is that we do not know how to use the bench, for most of the season they were forced to play too many minutes, while Bell and Moors played 5-10 minutes max.
One of our problems (the other being non existing FB and centers) were ineffective 2nd rowers (except Fulton and underused BMM). Blair and CW were ordinary and did not provide any go forward, while Ellis was injured for most of the season.
For mine Woods and Galloway deserve to play for Aus, and shall be NSW props next year.

Do we think Pettybourne will compliment Woods and Galloway?

Not quiet enough mongrel for my liking.

With keithyvwe won 11 from 18 , without Keith we played 7 and didn't win a single game I think that shows just how important he is

Can't believe some people are calling for him to be moved on! One of the most consistent this year for mine and his value in Woods' development is invaluable. The only beef with Keith I have, is that I wish he would realize how big he is and sprint at players, he's very slow and doesn't seem to wind up much, I think if he brought a fend into his game he could be a better player. But, in saying that he's known as a no nonsense front rower, similar to Grant, Petero. He does his job every week so I wouldn't be calling for him to go anywhere.

Doesn't bend the line? Do you watch any of the games? He always bends the line.

What players? if he is injured so often where are these players that will stand up and take his spot? Cashmere is the only real prop we have in reggies, the other guys aren't proven yet and even if they are capable Sheens wont use them.

people are delusional if they think he's been on fire this year. he's hot and cold.
yes he has injury problems, however you cant use that as an excuse forever. there comes a point you make tough decisions so the club can move forward and succeed.
p.s. pettybourne has 10x the mongrel keef has.

Mate, how many front rowers do get through a full season of 1st's uninjured? Not many.

And to be honest, how has he held back a player in Reggie's or NYC? The only one I think who really started to deserve a spot was Mosese F from the 20's and Cashy was hot and cold all year. Groat took a massive confidence hit when he got belted and was injured for a majority of the season.

We're a better team with him in it, and that's a fact. I'm sure with a full off season to get his injuries sorted out and hopefully somehow, someway a new coach with some new ideas for him, he could become an even better player.

Agree Alex. most of these fools dont have a clue, and forget he struggles with a permanent injury to his big toe which hampers the very core essence of a front rower....his go forward....he cannot push off his foot hard at all.

He gets smashed week in week out, and gives back twice as much twice as hard......plays with guts and ticker, spills blood and plays for the team, unlike a few others....and people here are questioning him.

Really....no idea.
Agree with both of you. Keith has averaged over 100 metres per game this season and he's played busted for most of it.

And might I also note that what I said about Mosese I should clarify. When I said he was starting to deserve a spot I meant on the bench. And by no means ahead of Keith.

Also if Sheens used his bench better, Keith may not be getting injured as much, and I could see our season being a lot more damaging during the season. But that's a whole different subject.

Clearly Keefy - Kite is a solid player but at his age not in Keffy's class.
