Probably get jumped on for mentioning but what exactly is his value to this team?
When he first come he was used as a bit of a ball playing forward. But since we have steady good steady halves in place ....What value is this guy as he doesn’t offer much in hit ups or stinging defence.
Well its nearly time to have a 'CRACK'....Go you :sign:

He’s the heart and souls of our pack. That’s his value.

Starting to fear for ET's health now. He cops bad head knocks most weeks, would not surprise to see him retire pretty soon. He seems like a really smart bloke who would leave the sport rather than have health concerns later in life.

His low running style makes him a target as the Newcastle pool cleaner found out last night.

The clean up work he does in defence is invaluable. You can’t have a team of big hitters/hard runners you need to add in some work horses as well.

How long did he re-sign for? Till the end of 2020?

Lol he’s contracted for another 3 years. I bet you Ivan doesn’t believe that.

Because he can make 50 tackles and stay on for 80 mins, HIAs notwithstanding.

If we want to retain comp-leading defence which means multiple men into every tackle, good line speed and scramble for 80 mins, you need long-minutes backrowers who van mop up all game.

That's why we started Rd1 with Taylor, Rowdy and Rochow, because then you can fairly rotate the props.

Look at last night - ET off, Rowdy missing and Sue in for Packer... and what do you know, we lost the ruck, couldnt stop the Newcastle go-forwards, let in late tries, got sucked to the middle and exposed on the edges.

People who only look at metres gained or hard runs are missing half the game.

Don't need ET to ball-play, got plenty of players to distribute. Don't need stinging defence, that only contributes a handful of tackles each game. Need cover defence, smart wrestle, ball-wrapping and commitment to tackles.

Look at Napa - best prop in the comp for big hits but generally average in regular D, and mediocre in all aspects of the attack.

He was off the pace last night, but that is expected after the layoff. Hopefully he gets back to form

Needs to start at hooker, have a rest and then finish the game at lock.
