Speaking of him, hasn’t even been sighted in RMC or the Sydney Shield. Is he in the Witness Protection Program? Kid seemed a real prospect, now he’d struggle to get a start selling the game day doubles…
His dad is on here under numerous names and I haven't seen him post anything about LD but I'm sure Warren "Big Mac" McDonell isn't a fan so I'd say he's on a do not enter list with a picture of him dropping a bomb, at the gates 😁

just revisiting this thread now that Pole has been named to debut. this is the beginning of hopefully a number of the new breed making their way into firsts between now and the end of next year. very exciting time if we manage to develop them properly and keep them around.

Are they going to be any better than players that will debut over the next year or two for 16 other clubs? That’s the key part, do they stand out. Just remember over the last few years people have been excited to see the debuts of players like Mikaele, Seyfarth, Kapoa, Talau, Simpkin etc. They all had the same amount of hype before they debuted. Now they are they players most would like to see cleaned out. Mikaele already has been.

I class Matamua as a generational talent. I believe Jordan Miller, Tallyn Da Silva and Lachlan Galvin from our Harold Matts side are very similar. there are a lot of other great juniors, but for now they are just that. Tannous, Kautoga, Scolari, Tupou, Vaihu, Tumeth, O'Kane and Solomone Saukuru should all become regular first graders at WT providing we develop them correctly.

So few make it.

Seyfarth, Kapoa, Talau & Simpkin could all come on still. It's way too early to write them off.

Point well made but not sure it is accurate. I don't think the NSW forwards were smashed - they just didn't win the ruck battle. They were outwrestled and slowness of the play the ball stifled the attack. You have to wonder though - if Cleary is the number 1 half and Freddy is a footballing genius why didn't they change the point or depth of the attack to nullify the wrestling?
Well beaten in every aspect is Smashed mate....
And they were very well beaten.
