Young Forwards

Post by MacDougall » Sat 19 Mar, 2011 9:39 pm

I've been one of a chorus of folks that have been championing the likes of Schirnack A&B, Aaron Woods et al for a while and I feel justified. The Schirnacks were flawless in defense and Woods looked like a seasoned first grade front rower apart from 1 drop. GOOD STUFF YOUNGUNS!

how good was woods! you see players struggle from the transition from nyc/nsw cup to first grade but woods is handling it so well. im glad he will be in the squad for several weeks.

dwyer is starting to reach his potential.

fifita was great in defense.

shirnacks were defending much better than they have in their previous chances.

Dwyer really improved playing as a second rower rather than as a prop. He's a better option than Fulton that's for sure.

I wouldn't say flawless, Jason missed 6 tackles.

I thought Dwyer really answered his critics tonight. Woods also made a big contribution.

The Shirnaks were important tonights but I do not see them as being in the mix in the long term other than injury situationsl.

i really hope fifita and woods do though

i agree sheens is a d#@k when he puts dwyer at front row as he gets dominated by the big forwards,hence MISTAKES

Jace Shirnack is a talent but gee he lacks size. Hard to see him playing a regular role when we have Fulton and Heighno. I actually wanted to see more from Al Shirnack tonight, he defended well, but he didnt go after his chance in attack IMO. He's a better player than he showed tonight, hope he gets another chance. I think Murdoch will partner Ellis in the backrow later in the year.

That has to be a typo wherever you read it, surely?

I'd would rather see Fulton left out for Shirnack.

Fulton out, Payten out imo... Payten looks like he played a year too long to me.

8 - Gibbs
9 - Farah
10 - KG
11 - Dwyer
12 - Ellis
13 - Heighington

14 - Fifita
15 - Woods
16 - Murdoch-Masila
17 - utility

Hopefully by years end.

Payten goes through these phases. He'll come good in a week or two and his defence will be very important

Wasn't it one of the Shirnacks that missed Mannering on the goal-line?

Cuzzo - Can't agree with your Fulton comment. He is in our best 17 for sure, fully fit.

I thought the same about Payten & yes agree with you King Sirro. He is a big unit and is getting on and like any seasoned stayer it takes him a few runs to get to his peake.

Consistency week in week out is a requirement to me. Is it not to you?
