Packerlino are going to be great foils for each other. Mats is a bit Todd Payten like, with a grade offload. Packer has the ability to hurt you. Someone to fear. Been years since we can say that about someone in our pack.
GNR I have been saying this for some time. What gets missed with props is the tough hit up and quick play the ball. Packerlino both do this well and they will help each other make metres off the back of powerful charges and fast play the balls. The real wildcard is Matulinos offloads with Brooks and Tui trailing. It's s shame Teddy won't be here as he would have caused havoc in support.

hope he brings his mate VETE with him.
Looks like Vete has re-signed with the Warriors

I watched some of the game last night and geez Matulino looked good.
i didnt see a lot of it but the triple m commentators said he was the warriors best player by a mile.

The great thing about having Packer and Mataulino on board is that i think Jesse Sue will go up a few steps in his game as will Twal. I think if we have a Packer, Mataulino, Twal, Sue prop rotation with the addition of maybe one more. We will have a forward pack that can finally compete.
Sue would want to go up a few steps because he has been ordinary this year.

This pack is fierce...

8. Matulino
9. Liddle
10. Packer.
11. Lawrence
12. McQueen
13. Taylor

14. Sue
15. Vete
16. Aloiai
17. Twal
We aren't far off that. Sue to me is average but he does perform at times. McIlwrick will be there as well as an interchange for Liddle. I'd like Vete as well.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, lol...

Expect a new & improved Sue in 2018 - he will really shine.

With the addition of Muts & Packer, he'll go to a whole new level, as will those two mentioned.
All friends and will really make the most of playing together.

I just hope he's "new and improved " at a New Club
Ever since he got here he's always gunna be good next season.

197 metres and 31 tackles in a losing team today. Can't wait for him to pull on our guernsey.

And all from the bench. Only half watched the game, but he made a big difference when he came on.

Matulino will be the best signing we've made since Ellis. He's who I'm most excited about in 2018.

Love, how many of our supporters almost wet themselves when someone off the bench of a crap team, has a reasonable game, against a team that has been crap for three years.
He might be ok. But today's not a great reference .
He's no Ellis.

Did you watch the game? Newcastle were twelve nil up and well and truly on top before he came on and then he got his team going forward and back in the match.

If a bloke that runs with purpose makes a couple of hundred odd meters and thirty plus tackles does not make a difference to a match, then I struggle to think what else does.

You probably shared the same view when we signed Ellis.
So many around here love to burst bubbles. Let the supporters be hopeful, I'd rather that than everyone being gloomy and showing no excitement from 2018.

Matulino gets a quick play the ball more often than not even after engaging defenders..His defence is also quality after watching closely since signing he does a good job in the ruck...

He will be a leader in our pack....

Big Ben was excellent this afternoon. Constantly bent the line whilst getting quick PTB and defended very well in a badly beaten side. Unlike our forward leader, you would love to take the next hit up after Big Ben every time.

I believe Woodsy will be taking the hit up after Matulino.
He is waiting for the us to arrive from Belmore to Concord. Will the driver turn up?
