Great young talent, and a good bloke by all reports, but the bit about the roosters cutting him caught my eye, as well as Packer shaking his hand and congratulating him on his debut last year.

Comes across as a good young man and a good talent too. Hope we can re-sign him.

Apart from that, he just wants me to stick with the patterns set by our defensive coach, Craig Sandercock, and the structures set by our attacking coach, Andrew Webster, and go from there. I think I’m pretty good at following a plan.
It's interesting to note that Cleary has swapped the roles of Sandercock and Webster. Taylor had Sandercock running attack and Webster on the defence, if I recall correctly.

Didn’t Sandercock come over to be our attacking coach? Appears he is now our defensive coach.

All I know is that so far our defense is much improved.
Yeah i found that interesting and webster attacking.
Im suprised he kept these two. Not taking away their ability just thought ivan would bring someone new in.

Doesn’t he have a brother or relo at the Dragons that plays fullback?

He has come on in leaps and bounds over the off season, surely talks on an extension are already underway.

Great to hear an Islander kid not talking about "niggas" and "gangstas". This is one young bloke who will go a long way in this game; hopefully while he's with us.

Was told that Ivan viewed him as a Centre so lost 9kg in the off season. Look how his career is coming along compared to Suli’s.

What I like most about Marsters is he had a reputation in the 20s for having real attacking talent but also being a bit lazy on the tough work / defensive side of things. He'd put his hand up close to the try line but not necessarily when tough work was required.

He got that rep game with the Cook Islands team and has just gone from strength to strength since.

I admire when players come to grade without that hype or fanfare, but grasp their opportunity, work hard and get better every week. Marsters was in line for debut last year and is now our first-choice centre.

Twal and Hooth gave similar qualities - unheralde but putting in the hard work to make the team better, even if not being individual superstars like a Tedesco.
He made a ripper tackle on Tedesco about 5 out from the line a bone cruncher and teddy spilled it.
Let us off the hook that tackle.
Marshall made the initial contact
I’d have to look at it again, but I thought Marsters hit him direct.
I guess Benji put Tupou into touch aswell?

Benji hit Tedesco. Masters came in when he was on the ground. They were both great tackles even if Benji didn't complete his tackle.
