Demps, I agree with you, I think Sue will go well next year with these guys helping him.
Sue & MCK are wild cards both players have huge potential but have to consistently perform at a higher level. Way too inconsistent and have plenty of time in first grade to shine.
MCK is nothing but a fringe first grader and I don't see a whole lot more upside in him unfortunately.

Has anyone been watching Ben's games lately. Stats don't tell the full story but looked good tonight:

31 tackles
143 metres
3 offloads
2 tackle breaks

Not bad in a losing side

He's been great. Love his offload. It's going to be great having a prop who doesn't seize up like a statue and actually looks to promote the ball.

Glad everyone has seen the light. Matulino is a beast injury has cruled him. Best prop in the game in 2015.

His last game of the season is at Leichhardt what a coincidence.

He's been gradually improving since he returned from injury. As a long as he's fit, he'll be a great purchase. Frankly, at full strength, I'd take him over Woods.

That would be a bonus. As you posted in another thread, we need more forwards!

I still struggle to understand why the Warriors can't win a game with the talent they have on the field. It's mind boggling really.

That's forlorn hope, Vete has re-signed with the Warriors.

Packerlino are going to be great foils for each other. Mats is a bit Todd Payten like, with a grade offload. Packer has the ability to hurt you. Someone to fear. Been years since we can say that about someone in our pack.

The great thing about having Packer and Mataulino on board is that i think Jesse Sue will go up a few steps in his game as will Twal. I think if we have a Packer, Mataulino, Twal, Sue prop rotation with the addition of maybe one more. We will have a forward pack that can finally compete.
I don't know why but Braith Anasta pisses me off :mrgreen:
