Kurtis Rowe

Was our best despite conceding a few tries. Tried hard, ran hard and was only as defensively poor as the rest of the side. Should take the fullback spot off Moses next week if we aren't about playing favourites. Moses and Austin should have been the halves and Sironen can go and get stuffed.

I like him, good kid. His problem earlier in the yr when he was copping it was that he wasn't Tedesco.

When you have such a defensive liability as Simona on your inside sometimes you do not look to good , but he played pretty strong tonight should of been there last week, I actually think he is a better option at fullback than Moses.

I can't agree with the OP. He was found awfully out of position for Wright's second and was pretty easily out jumped for his third. I can't be sure but I thought he was the one who rushed in for his first as well. It was a pretty ordinary game from him. I understand he was playing in a somewhat unfamiliar position but if that's your job then that's the job you have to do

In general, I don't see it yet to be honest. He gets manhandled when returning the ball and apart from one game his positional play wasn't the best either. No doubt the kids got ticker but seems to be a depth player at the moment who will ply his trade well in NSW Cup for the foreseeable future.

One of only a couple of players who had a go I reckon.

Is it just me or did he look bigger? He didn't get dominated in tackles like he did earlier in the year. I base this thread mainly on the fact that he was one of the only players who managed a tackle break and almost made 100 metres. He would have probably gone the length of the field too if Moga didn't ankle tap him, the kid is very quick. I reckon he's quicker than Tedesco.

He got slower since he bulked up. Based on NSW cup games this year

think I'd back Teddy when fully fit. Who did he run down in the nines - wasn't it Kevin Gordon?

Ah ok. Well yeah maybe he is bigger. He actually didn't look too small to play wing in first grade.

Would have him at fullback next week anyway. He's a better option there than Moses, and Moses is a better option in the halves than Sironen obviously. Play players in their positions!!! Why would you have a five-eighth and fullback, a fullback on the wing and a backrower in the halves!? Potter put the Sheens hat on with this team selection.

He stood up David Mead and ran down Albert Kelly iirc.

I think Tedesco has more acceleration than Rowe, but I think Rowe would be faster over the 100? It'd be close. Tedesco almost got caught by Anthony Don in the nines when he scored that awesome try ... who is actually underratedly quick himself tbh.

The Reason Moses won't play 5/8 as he can not make a one on one tackle ,he wanted nothing to do with anyone running front on tonight and to be frank would be thrown around like a rag doll. If any want him at 5/8 watch the game again he needs another season in the reggies.

I said the same thing in the run then all of a sudden he took down a rampaging Tariq Sims, so maybe he really did just get bamboozled every other time. What I saw of Moses in NSW cup indicated to me that he's a better defender than Brooks tbh.

Probably the person who performed best tonight was the teams bus driver

The only other positive tonight was that I saw a recently retired ex work colleague get picked out in the kiss cam at half time and he kissed his wonderful wife

Funnily enough he was hosting the box I sat in last time I came up for a Tigers v Cowboys game

Seen him a few times at concord recently and i agree he is looking bigger. Wouldn't rule him out as a potential winger when patty retires at the end of next year. One of the few that had a go tonight..

His decision making in defence made Koro look like a defensive genius. Was Rowe even trying to make the right decisions, because i honestly cant believe how bad he was in this regard.

The rest of his game yeh, he seems to have developed a knack for beating his man regularly.

I couldnt have him on the wing again because he's clueless there.

This is pretty spot on. Run it at Rowe on the wing and you will score. I can't give him a wrap on that performance but to be fair he shouldn't have been on the wing.

For some reason Lulia defended the same way, 20m in from the sideline. Take a tip wingers, STAY ON YOUR WING
