Who will make the big time???

Post by simonthetiger » Wed 30 Sep, 2009 7:04 pm

Who will push for a REAL spot in the top grade from our under 20"s next year??

I think Mullaney needs more work,but I see Lui,Dwyer and Fifita as real chances to hold down bench spots next year,and if anyone gets hurt a starter.


Thoughts......???

Maybe Hyland???

Andrew Fifita is a gun and has to be given a go from the start of the season.

Starting building around these young guys and tie them up with long contracts.

13 of the starting 17 are still eligable for the 20's next Year so there's no need to rush...

A Fafita and Lui would be my picks to push for a regular first grade spot....

but then there is....Schirnack, Dwyer, Mullaney, Roqica,D Fafita, Makuai, Jackson, Hyland,Woods that could all get a crack at some stage......

I think only Dwyer and Shirnack have a chance of being regular first graders next year, only problem is they play in our strongest position.

I can see NRL careers for Lui, Fifita, Woods, and Mullaney, but not next year.

I hope the Fifita boys, Woods, Schirnack and Dwyer become best mates with Steve Foulkes in the off season.

Pretty much the whole forward pack from the 20s have amazing potential.

Unfortunately for Jackson, the signings of Brown and Daniella will probably block any chances he has of NRL in 2010. Does anyone know if he's still eligible for U20s next season?

The success of the 20s this year has got me so excited for next year.

Big hopes for so many of these players. I think Mullaney and I really like the stuff Shirnack has done this year. Would be great to see him become a regular starter in the top 17. IMO

possibly not next year though

Lui, Dwyer and Andrew Fifita are the main 3 that stand out for me. Sheens will no doubt carry a prop or two on the bench, along with a backrower and a utility or back. Dwyer and Fifita could well find themselves coming off the bench. As to how much FG Lui gets will be largely dependent on how Taumata shapes up. Lui can still play in the 20's next season so the Tigers have options with him.

Dwyer and Lui are the two obvious stars.

Shirnack will probably figure at some stage in firsts next year as will A.Fifita

Woods and Mullaney are more long term prospects.

Matt Hyland will never play first grade for anyone.

watching the u20s vs the dragons, all the tigers players who had a run in 1st grade this year were a cut above the rest. u can see it in the way they play. it was as though they were playing against a bunch of kids in dragons outfits. its amazing what a few games in the top grade can do to a young player. Lui will be in the top squad next year and u gota give the fifi bro's a crack as well. esp the one who scored that 1st try, i dont remember which 1 it was, but he is a very powerful front rower.
