Jesus, can we get this quote tag problem fixed?

Usually I'm a bit of a skeptic about 'sons-of-legends'. They're all coaching and no natural ability. Mitchell Pearce is a perfect example. Mortimer was a flop, even Ray Warren's kid had a go, the rest have gone onto become unremarkable. They don't usually last but I have a good feeling about this one.

Outstanding debut! I thought he had a try first touch. Great ball skills, speed and tackles like his old man. He'll do! Tommy can come of the bench and do his thing.

Pearce & Mortimer have done what very few do....make first grade, Pearce repping.
Bit much to call them flops.

You want flops?

Lincoln Raudonikis
Dane Dorahy
Scott Fulton
Ben Anderson
Any son of Blockers

Compare Mortimer and Pearce to those guys and then ask yourself if they are flops

I never said Pearce was a flop, just that he's a boring player.

Gasnier? Grothe? Sattler? Young? There's probably a heap more.

Siro is a solid player, time will tell but geez if sunday is any indication to what he can provide in first grade then he looks the goods.

Surprised at the hype around him (not really)

Aside from missing a tackle on thurston didn't really notice him.

Talking of missed tackles who missed Tamou

It looks like Farah but the vision isn't 100% clear

The late Gil MacDougall and Adam MacDougall Handy father and son combination

Richie Twist and Jason Twist Not so handy Father and Son combination

Didn't watch the game then?? He put on some great hits, ran some good lines hitting two holes and would've scored off one if Benji hadn't propelled the ball forward to him. And if you still didn't notice him then that's almost the point ... that he fitted in so effortlessly he just looked like part of the team.

Hopefully we can build a settled halves combo now. I thought he did well but I hope Sheens takes it easy with him. Remember all those injuries Benji had early in his career? Would hate to see the same thing happen to Curtis, although his body looks much more mature than Benji at the same age.

Agree, Mortimer won rookie of the year and Pearce has played half a dozen origins, flops is very harsh.

I think the problem is that they are constantly compared to their famous fathers, and when you are the son (or nephew) of legend it is a fairly high bar, that very few can match.

In many ways the weight of the famous name is a burden rather than a help

Yeah it was Farah. I think it was a combination of Tamou's surprising turn of speed and Robbie's tiredness. He pretty much went around Farah who had to almost dive to make his attempt (which was a very tried looking effort). Robbie put his hand up to the miss in his post-match comments.
