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?
No ....as far as I'm concerned , Woods is under the bus ..."Road Kill".
We need mongrel ..
No more plodders !

Nice. I'll settle for the bus going a different route.

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.
I never said he was an Ellis, I said he would be our best signing since Ellis. He can't do it all by himself at the Warriors, but the stats from today speak for themself. And It's not just one game, he's been just about their best since coming back from injury.
You're having a laugh if you don't think Matulino is going to have a positive impact on our pack.

I didn't say that you said he was an Ellis.
And I didn't say he wouldn't have a positive effect on our pack.
It wouldn't take much to be a positive on a pack like ours , especially when you take Woods out of it

Matulino of all the players we have bought looks the most likely but it will be just like the Warriors if the others dont perform around him - he will look good in an ordinary side. Plenty of talent at the Warriors but what a disappointing season.

I agree with you Fraze, I think Matulino will be a big positive for us next year, providing he stays injury free.

I'm glad people are seeing how good he is - his stats are fantastic and he often has to carry a lazy Warriors pack on his own, much like Woods has had to do here for years. Yet one is considered to be a great prop, the other crap. I guess the grass always looks greener on the other side of the fence.

All I can say is that it would be awesome to have them both here with us next season!

It will be nice to have the 4 kiwi boys ( Matulino, Packer, Lolohea and Taylor) on board next year.
I have family in Balmain and the Western suburbs so i guess that makes me a Balmain Westie

As well as Taane Milne and Benji. Not sure about Fonua, I think he's Tongan.

That looks like the Outrigger at Sigatoka. Very nice place to stay.

I like the fact we will be absolutely fine through the origin period - Unless the likes of Nofo, Brooks, McQueen or Reynolds get shock selections.

Very slim chances are all of those UD. Will be good to head on into the origin series full strength.

With only two origin affected rounds this year, that means every team only plays one game origin affected. Fortunately for us that game is against roosters!

I really like his signing, personally think he'll be a better buy then Packer.
