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..
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.
Was said about Neil Begovich.
Was said about Matt Groat.
Was said about Lamar Leovevave.
Was said about JJ Felise.
Wait and see Demps - Mikaele is a different kettle of fish to the players mentioned above.

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.
. . . 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.
It's a good headache, isn't it?
I think it's pretty clear though.

Ryan Matterson is first grade and will be played as such, starting second row - guarantee.
Zane Musgrove is no slouch and despite claiming he is depth / ISC - he is top 4 at our club in his position - he'll play off the bench.

ET > Other options at present unless we move Twal to #13 - Assume ET will start at lock unless he's moved on between now and round 1. He can play front row + second row too during the game - I'd keep him away from hooker.

MCK - Depth tbh. He's no beast. Won't let us down though.

TM - Hype boy. Let's see how he develops this year before we start claiming he's the next Klemmer like some dud with Tyson "Thurston" Gamble.

You and I both know these are statements we read about certain people every year....
Like the look of the kid though, hoping for the best.

We've been needing a gun prop to step up since Galloway...

I think Musgrove will kick on being under Maguire again, I think a combo of Musgrove, Twal and Mikaele on the bench gives us great go forward when Mats and Packs have a breather.

The stats and opinions on our pack - i think in this thread earlier- are pretty on the mark, we are way down the bottom with post contact metres in both attack & defense...this crucially needs improving

Hopefully that was down to coaching instruction.

Packer and Matulino have both shown in the past that they are very capable players.

I like Twal & Musgrove looks the goods.
We'll see about Mikele though.
Hope you're right !

The stats on our packs ability to make meters is unfair anyone who watched more than a few games would of seen our forwards were not really used to get out of our own end. I feel sorry for you if that flew over your head.

I am expecting Madge to get the best out of our forwards this year and if TM can live up to half the hype we will have a top 8 pack.

Does anyone know how Oliver Clark is performing on the training paddock?
Or is he is in recovery?
If he doesn't show something outstanding he will be the first one to go.

Well he surely couldn't run any softer than Packerlino.
If he can make more than 36m he might be our starting prop.

funny but true....sad/soft buys they have been
