If ever there was a lock in-waiting it is Alex Twal....Not only because he's called Alex like myself, but he just oozes class in that position when given the opportunity....I predict big things from him this year.... :sign:

Welcome, Zane.

As our signings are going we got:
Maguire
Matterson
Momirovski
Musgrove

Going by that, our next signing will be... Munster? Mansour? Maloney?
Mbye earlier as well, but just remembered that Farah slotted in inbetween.

I don’t see Twal as a lock, he is too rigid and runs with a bolt upright stance. He doesn’t appear to have the agility of someone like Garner or Lawrence.

Most locks now are just high work rate props capable of playing big minutes regularly:
- Jake Trbojevic
- Paul Gallen
- Jason Taumalolo
- James Fisher-Harris
- Josh McGuire
- Isaac Liu
- Jack De Belin
- Herman Ese’ese

...etc. a lot more like Alex Twal than Lawrence or Garner who you would never play at prop. We need more metres out of our middle forwards which means we should be looking at someone like Twal for lock.

That's a fair point TT.. I tend to agree

If you run with Twal at lock (which isn't a silly idea) then I think we are one prop short with only Packer, Matulino, Musgrave, Eisenhuth and Mikaele.

Perhaps a Robbie Rochow at lock?

Matterson and Lawrence in the second row?

Taylor is looking a bench player at this point maybe (if you want to run a more sizeable lock).

This season gone. We relied on on Nofo and Fonua to make meters because the pack couldn't. Having Twal at lock would give the pack some go forward.
in Ivan we distrust

Twal size is against him as a lock, we need to groom a future front row rotation. Twal and Zane are it for me. Stil think we are a prop short.

I actually like Matterson as a lock, after watching some of his games this hear back the last few weeks it showed he is a 5/8/centre/backrower - he can ball play late and runs decent lines + can defend.

He is certainly not carrying any weight except hard muscle....He is 6' 3" tall or thereabout which is nigh on perfect for me anyway....Think Ron Coote.... :sign:

We have to run with 4 props.
Matulino, Packer, Twal, Musgrove. I think Mikalele will beat out ET for the 13 jersey.

I could see a centre, lock and winger signed before the season kicks off. McQueen, ET, Rochow seem to be played that will struggle.

😂

Mikael who's never played a game and isn't exactly conaidered a lock is going to beat out ET, our most established player at #13 and has never let us down rly despite the hate, the head knocks and his huge work rate

Yeah it seems extremely unlikely that Maguire would start a rookie at #13. If Mikaele gets a run it'll be as a bench prop to start with. Taylor, Twal or Eisenhuth will be #13 unless we make another forward signing.

Thomas is ripping in at training..don't know about starting at lock but he'll be there thereabouts in the 17 I would guess..bench to start,,

rated highly by the coaching staff...

Musgrove settling in nicely...we'll have some aggression sorely lacking..
Wests Tigers don't need a Coach.. The playing group has taken over..
