Nothing about this kid has ever impressed me. Yes i know he's young, but i remember watching Woods debut thinking to myself 'gee this kid can play', something i have never ever thought about Groat. He's never stood out to me, except for the Warriors final last yr where he made crucial back to back errors. Give me Fifita 8 days a week over this kid. For all of Fifita's faults, he had 1 thing that Groat will never have, an X-factor

Agree. Moors and Bell look up to it, as does BMM but I'd prefer to see him in the backrow. Groat needs to play some big minutes in State Cup I think, get his match fitness up and then use him off the interchange bench.

Groat is fefinately not up to 1st grade standard at the moment. Way off. A young prop that needs to star in a lower grade for a while to get his confidence and fitness up. BMM needs to be starting prop with Groat dropped. He really struggled last night. Where as I felt the other forwrds put in some effort. Woods stood up and got stuck in, Ellis was as usual very good, BMM was good and will grow in stature when given the responsibilty of a starting prop role.

Don't think effort is the word you are looking for their. I don't anyone can question his effort, it is obvious he is giving 110%.

You want to question effort, look at Adam Blair.

BMM, Bell and Moors are all better options then Groat. Word is Galloway will be back this week, so with him in the starting side, i'd like to see a bench of BMM, Moors, Bell and a fourth forward, but Meaney will most probably get another run :brick:

I think that's even more concerning from Groat if that's his 110%
