Groat went well considering his limited first grade experience. He looked stronger than Fifita who didn't make too much headway with the ball.

He is still young but he is very talented. I have heard that the coaching staff rate both Groat and Woods above Fifita. I think we have kept the right 2 out of those 3.

The commentators said he is 117kg. Is this true? Awesome :)

He probably had a better game tonight then Woods has had all season, looks a real player of the future.

Great game Groat. He was solid. Plenty of high quality tackles and solid hit ups for a young guy. He really rolled up the sleeves. His body is still developing so expect a bigger, stronger, faster Groat next season.... very exciting.

Interesting that Fafita's intensity has dropped off massively over the past few weeks. Hardly seen his famous fends or line breaks since just before his annoucement when he was probably still selling himself to jack up his market value.

Was really impressive - ran hard and tackled hard and in his first real FG game up in NQ was a great effort. I think Begovich from the 20s front row is a bloke with great potential too so we have some great young props coming through

He did play well... but I thought Woods had a good game too. In terms of go forward... showed more then Fifita tonight.
I hate South Sydney.... immensely

I'm a little concerned he only looked good because we were winning.

Held is own, but unfair on him to judge him before he gets a full off season with top grade and gets a season under his belt, even if theyre positive judgements, if he continues to develop, he's a prospect, great size!!!

He reminds me of a young Skandalis, still remember his first (first grade) game in the pouring rain at Campbelltown. Pretty sure he played for most of the game though

Solid, good hit out.

Did his job but it would be a big ask to do it week in week out at this stage of his career. Limited bench minutes and time in NYC next season are probably what is best for his development.

But I guess you never know until it is tried
