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..
Something positive to look forward too

These 2 may have more of an impact than we could ever of imagined

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.

Ive been saying it for a while. He is wasted on an edge.

I hope we play him in the middle.
Its an opinion!

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
ET doesn’t work with our current props. I thought it would but you can’t go past the lack of metres. He’s a good player but doesn’t suit the modern game.

Packer and Matulino are big in other areas not just metreage but the 13 has to be a third prop. I may be way off but age should be no barrier. This kid can go hard and is very mobile.

I’d prefer an experienced recruit with Mikalele off the bench to ease him in but it may not happen. I’d give the kid a crack. He’d struggle to be a downgrade on ET’s last year.

ET didn't work with how Ivan used our props. Mats average metres for the previous 3 years have been between 116 and 150. Packer's metres not as good, but close to 100. It's been said elsewhere: Ivan had their primary job as defence.

Yeah, some perspective. Playing to a game plan and a challenging one at that in defence, so not much juice left for attack when they were using so much energy in getting well across field to be the A defenders much more often than their counterparts at other clubs were required to do.

It is also not where we lost out this past year, with lack of finesse and finishing being much greater issues for mine.

Right edge has been a weakness for years which is why we've cycled through a number of (unsuccessful) options there. We finally make a quality signing for the position and then people want him moved to lock with the result that we'll have the same old unsuccessful options for right edge...

As per usual Geo you have your finger on the pulse.

I have posted before that Tom Mikaele is the BEST forward prospect that this club has had in many a long miserable season.

And ridding ourselves of Cleary's counselling sessions and replacing them with Maguire's blood and guts will benefit Tom probably more than any other player in our squad who is just naturally aggressive.

. . . And one of the best things about playing him in the middle is he actually has a short kicking game.
To have him put in the odd grubber and have our quick #7 running on to the kick, instead of making the kick would add another dimension to our goal line attacking options.

Cronulla do the same with Wade Graham and Luke Lewis, they were edge players through and through.

For the life of me I can’t work out how ET, RM, TM and MCK all make their way into a Zane Musgrove thread.

My logic? I made a statement about how there is always a talked up player.
I'm not saying Thomas is a dud. It's just the bold statement is something we hear every year about some one....
