Why do forwards typically debut alter than backs? Because it takes longer for their bodies to mature and for them to learn how to use their size to their advantage in both attack and defence.

The boy's 20 and has had an injury marred start to his career. Most players take a while to find form after coming back from a long lay off, and he's no different.

Sirro is coming along. Just needs to wind up more with his hit-ups - but the whole team is guilty of this, too flat-footed despite yesterday's result.

I reckon 12 months time a lot of people will be eating humble pie, kid is still developing and he is a future rep player for sure

Most players take 30 to 40 first grade games to start realising their potential, especially forwards. Sironen has missed most of the season, only back for a few games and is now playing 80 minutes against what is touted as the best pack in this competition. From where I was at the game, I thought he and his second row mate Bodene, were nothing but outstanding. Sironen, in the opinion of this old Magpie (more than 50 years a supporter), will be a champion - just give it a year or two.

Their is no doubt being the son of a former great player has probably helped and hindered his rise to the NRL. At present he is a work in progress and will be for another season or two, but barring injury he will be a top notch player.

Very solid game, nothing fancy. Has huge upside. Played closer because the gameplan was to go thru the centre...you may seem him terrorise his old mate next week.

Yes your right LarryC. With Benji's defensive issues. Young Sirro is the perfect player to have running at him all game. Similar to the way Kevin Proctor runs off Cronk.

Sirro spoke very well on sterlo tonight. Seems to be beyond his years in front of the cameras - very comfortable. And he said he was looking forward to running at Benji. Yep....looking forward to that.

Yep. That comment to the like of "I'll be running at him a lot!!" made me chuckle. Was very very mature last night on sterlo. Spoke well and handled the Potter talk around him extremely well. I like that his old man is his life coach but not his part time over bearing footy coach. Well done Paul you should be proud of your young lad. Doing your name and legacy proud. I have no doubt he'll continue to do that on the field too.

Those of you bagging. You need to remember he is still a kid (though a massive unit) who's also suffered two shoulder recos and needs to get some regular footy under his belt. He'll go a long way IMO. Big fan!!

What's in a name
Roach , his son excelled in his sport , water polo
Jack , Sydney swans gun
Pearce , playing first grade , and played rep footy
Sirro , coming along nice , will only get better
Elias , Moses coming along nicely , will only get better

If sirro can stay free from injury he will be a very solid first grader with rep potential , and he is still filling out

:sign: Those of you who say young Sirro was better than his father at an early age don't know what they are talking about so please don't make such outlandish statements because, some of the good people on this forum may believe you. His father was The Dally M Rookie Player of the year.

They showed a good bit of footage from Sirro snr's last game at LO (aged 34) . He ran out holding Curtis's hand. Curtis looked about 8 years old. Great moment for their family. He also mentioned both him and Bailey were soccer players but got too big. I read an article in the SMH about a year ago stating that Brooks was also a rep soccer player. And one opposing team wouldn't play his side unless he was in goals. Cause he'd scored 11 goals against them. LOL. Obviously very talented athletes.
