Pettybourne!

He only played 20 minutes but boy were they good!
95 metres and a fantastic run from a drop out.
He needs to be there every week.

It was nice to see a Tigers forward run hard. He and BMM are the only 2 who run with power. Fulton re-signing is a terrible decision.

Nothing wrong with Fults. Great tackler and is v good at attack when we are on top. It's the balance of having two lightweight backrowers that is the problem.

A lot wrong when we don't have the players to carry him. Shouldn't have been re-signed.

Pettybourne was excellent today. Exactly what you want off the bench: impact.

Read the original post questioning Fulton re-signing. It was a poor decision.

Might see Pettybourne in the prop rotation against Parra? He seems the best contender to replace Gallows to me.

He was really effective coming off the bench and "filling in". Be interesting to see if he does start with Woods because I can't see Bell starting over him in place of Galloway.

Pettybourne really hits the line hard so doesn't seem out of place at prop even if he sacrifices size.

I'll be shocked if he doesn't start getting more game time, really stood out in the 20 minutes he played

THIS!

What's with the Heigno shuffle? Every single player incuding Woods....Pettybourne and Koro seem to the only ones taking the line straight and hard

He had a role today and that was to lead the pack for the last 20 minutes.

I think we may see Eddy play as first choice in the prop rotation with Woods and Buchanan starting and big Ava on the bench.

That I would like to see. PLayed well and showed the mongrel that we all have talking about and hoping he would bring to the team. If Galloway is out, Front row should be Buchanen and Woods, rotating with bell and Pettyboune, and thompson if he is back. Where is Thompson, how long was he suspende for?

The crowd just erupted in anticipation when Pettybourne wound up to hammer into the line after that drop-out, how great was that!
Many long-time WT fans could have been excused for asking someone standing next to them what he was doing...after all we have never really seen it done by a WT player before except maybe Daine Laurie. Great stuff!

I think Pettybourne is more suited to coming off the bench than starting. Make the defence really have to steel up to tackle his full-bore charges once they are starting to tire a bit. Give us plenty more of those thanks Mr Ed!
