It would be interesting to see Twal's stat when he was playing ISP. I seem to recall many people saying the same things about Twal when he came across from Parra

Twal was still averaging well over 100m a match, and making a ton of tackles without missing many. Clark was averaging about 60-70m a game which is underwhelming and falling off tackles.

So do people who've seen him play think he's more of an aggressive hard runner or a workhorse?
He's not aggressive. From his form this season he's more of a soft, sluggish work horse .

Think of a less impressive version of Eisenhuth.
Cleary and our recruitment guys pick up a dud then, I guess!
Doom and gloom.

And signed for 2.5 years. Part of the constant rebuilding

I would say he is far to young to be written off as a plodder.Wait and see how he goes over the next few seasons before you consign a young front row forward to the scrapheap.
If he was mid 20s and doing squat fair enough

I have a mate on the training staff at Penrith, and he said to me .. "happy to see Clark go .. !!"
From all reports big strong unstoppable young guy in the U20's with heaps of potential, but since stepping up to the ISP has turned in a "marshmellow" .. !! Hope IC see's more potential than that in the young fellow.

Parra didn’t see potential in Twal and he has been our best forward this year. Let’s reserve judgement until we see him in action for us.

Ivan remembers him as an up and coming superstar from his time at Penrith. Much like his memories of Godinet from the warriors

Is Clark able to play for us in any grade this week. Or does he have to sit out to round 17.

Just had a read through and you are right Twal had really good stats. Although so does Woods. Hopefully in this case his stats are not everything.

Ivan seems to have got more right than wrong when it comes to the Juniors.

The critics seem to have watched a lot of the Panthers reserve grade side.

Where? Why?

You can see his stats on this page. If correct he averages 73 metres in around 36 minutes of game time and tackle efficiency of 92 percent.

Wow so much negativity towards this signing. I’ve never seen he play so can’t comment on that however let’s just remember he is a 21 year old prop who would be signed on a small contract.

Appears that everyone is a great player until we sign them and then they are crap.

I am happy to wait and see what Cleary and the coaching team can do with him.

It's not as though he's a 'superstar' signing.
He doesn't sound as bad as some of the doomsayers make out.
Only young for a prop and not on much coin... welcome aboard.

Im not fussed at all with this guy. if he comes on all well and good but it seems more a squad and culture call than anything to do with talent.
Its an opinion!
