Does anyone have information/background on Garner. He looked impressive.
Garner came to WTs from the Roosters but played in the Manly U20s prior to the move. His is originally a Gold Coast product and if he keeps up the performances could progress like Eisenhuth.
Paws - I see that he is still a young fellow and Captain of the team. Hodgo must be impressed. I just read that he can play Centre or Second-row. It would be interesting to see how he handles centre - at 190 cm would give us some size out wide plus good defence.
Id keep developing him in the second row. Would not have him in crentres.
After gamble I thought he was the standout. Would not look out of place in nrl.

I fully understand if Cleary doesnt want to upset Plan A but this is just silly. Tyson Gamble isnt a 15 year old boy, he is a man and has some real class about him.

If he is good enough thats all that matters.
Its an opinion!

We were talking about garner but same applies I guess. Plus its easier to be introduced via second row off the bench.

Garner played centre for us last year and struggled. Although the entire team was pathetic so it was impossible for anyone to look good.

The whole team really looked good. Gamble was definitely the dominant playmaker and controlled the team well. Not sure if he has a long kicking game though as Drinkwater handled this. If he keeps up this form he'll be in first grade before we know it.

Nof didn't do much so won't get a callup. Both he and Fonua make metres but don't do much else and have suspect defence. Milne touched the ball about 3 times all game which was disappointing.

Sirro looked good. All of our props were excellent. Siolo was also very good, especially seeing our starting hooker went off with concussion after 10 mins, and he was already our 4th/5th choice hooker.

McQueen was solid. A worker, put in, and will get confidence in his body again.

I just watched the game and damn that was impressive,

That dogs team nearly won it last year and we gave them a bath.

Cant believe some peeps ripping on Nofa.....he was great,popping up everywhere and offloads at will....and two pies.

I thought Nof and Milne looked quite the pair offloading and following eachother.

Fonua is almost impossible to tackle....was huffing and puffing a bit but gee he did a million dirty hitups and was killing it.

The suprises for me were my 3-2-1.......which were Gamble,SIro and that Garner kid id never heard of him but gee he is big for a kid and has some nice footwork.

Siro was really light on his feet and was everywhere, he has improved out of sight.

And the MOM IMO was Gamble....hits hard in defense,really strong and damn has hands and feet.....gee he looks first grade bound.

Honorable mentions to JJ Felise who was the pick of the props and Heleta who chimed into the backline very nicely.

Mcqueen and Sue look a bit off first grade but tried hard.

AND.....we got six dropouts.....that's right six.

Take not Messers Brooks that these kids are on yer tail!

Ive only just watched the game but i was really shocked how differently i saw the game to others on here.

And true Nofs defense was on point.....Fonua also came ina few times and rattle the guy with the ball.

Was at the game and just caught the replay. They played like the top grade with plenty of effort and they have some flair and skill. Hard not to think Gamble will make a very good NRL player. I would give him another month than try get him some bench time in the top grade

For sure, he looks a cut above.

The thing i liked about him the most was hom much time he seemed to have.

Very measured and confident young man.

Luke Garner with 10 tackle-breaks in the first round of the ISP is very impressive. No other player came near that stat.
