He might have but he still couldnt punch holes like Ava and Sue

I thought he would go places when we signed him a couple of years ago but the kid still hasnt
Not much better than BMM and Groat sadly
He has put on weight but still plods along out there, the poor bloke just has no leg speed.

I'm with you guys - Buchanan just hasn't got the goods for mine. Lodge on the other hand does look like he could develop into a great front rower. I hope Gavet gets himself sorted as he has great potential in our rotation as well. Woods, Taupau, Lodge, Ava, Gavet and Brown are the future up front!

Buchanan is improving, he will be something in the future. He racked up over 100m against Dogs & Over 100 against chooks after already playing against Jets I believe.

He has the right attitude and I think he will be one of those players who take a while to kick on.

Brown on the other hand is fat, lazy and has crap defense. He needs to pickup his game, soon.

We need to sign Mason, he will give us one good year on the field then plenty of good years off the field. Would love to have him firing up our boys.

Lodge needs more legspeed as well. He will tear teams apart for 80-100m in 20 minutes if he can keep pumping AFTER contact with the line. Thats something that players like Akaula and Woods have.

Don't believe Mason has anything to offer - apart from taking up salary cap space.
Has even less to offer off the field IMO.
