Can't understand why people keep mentioning him. He will not play FG this year unless a massive injury crisis occurs.

You seriously can't expect someone switching codes to play FG after round two.

HT - If he switches well isn't a year a long time to wait?

What a joke.

It's like Rugby is a completely different sport; don't quote me and list the differences, because I know them. A winger can handle it. I'm prepared to give Grant a go soon, and if you say now is too soon, ok, that's fine, but a year?

Please.

My take on Grant today.

1st half

He's huge, great looking athlete. Few minutes in Cronulla kicked and Tigers players had to scream at him to drop back. First hit up he got crunched, dropped the ball Cronulla scored. He was then required to make a one on one tackle and missed, Cronulla scored again. Got given a half chance up the sideline but didnt really look like doing anything with it, was going to get bundled out and threw the ball back but we eventually lost possession on the play. That was his entire 1st half involvement.

2nd half
He was on the other side and lost track of him a bit as i was well and truly over the game. He improved. Helped stop a cronulla break by running someone down. Had a strong hit up in the middle of the ruck and looked strong. Sharks put a good grubber in and looked set to score but Grant did very well to turn and get to it first. Scored an easy try.

Overall, i feel he has the talent and the physical attributes. But he looks like he lacks confidence. Once that kicks in we may see a very demaging player, but until then, dont even think about a call up to NRL.

Yeah let's just throw him into first grade after how many league games? 2? 3?

Tim Sheens was on 2sm on Wednesday afternoon I think it was. When asked about Grant he said he was injured at the moment. I forget what the injury was though. Another one we can add to the list

It is simple If he was ready to step up Sheens would play him look at James Tedesco

He obviously isn't ready but that could change around round 12-13

Have the people calling for him to play actually seen him play. I've seen him play 3 times and he most definitely is not ready yet. Meaney has spend the 3 games telling him where to stand in both defense and attack. 1st grade is not the place to learn the game.

He has potential, but he is not ready.

I doubt they have seen him play. Most likely they have just watched the highlight reel on YouTube

. So what do we do utai is injured who do we get to fill in utais place. Sheens put didesco at fullback then mitch brown said [automatically edited] it he went to the dogss then what happend dedesco got injured then he puts TOM FUMBLE he cost us a try. WE NEED EXPERIENCED PLAYERS not players who are unexperienced players we got john grant for a reason not so we can put him in nsw cup that is a waste of a player that could be in the team doing alot off damage.. NOw is the time to put grant, reddy, in our side before its to late....

You speak about not wanting to play inexperience players them suggest grant. He is the most inexperienced player in the club.

He is not ready for 1st grade. He has to be directed by other players for his positional play.
