I haven’t seen any trials yet, but I love seeing players trying to prove themselves in trials rather then just having a hit out. Obviously the regular first graders don’t need to prove anything, but who are the fringe players that have taken the opportunity in the trials to push for a spot in the 17 come round 1.
It sounds like Fulton got heavily involved and may have some of the doubters thinking twice. I was fairly certain he’d be in the 17 somewhere for R1. He may have done enough already for Sheensy.
There’s some talk of Fafita rampaging in the state cup. Just like how he finished off in the NYC. I’m not suprised and Sheens has already suggested he’ll be used to rotate the bench this year. I think he’ll carry his form into 1st grade and can’t wait to see him get a run. I doubt he could play with the same impact every week in FG, but little cameos here and there might be add another X-factor in our 2010 team.
What about Lazarus - albeit against a weak Cowboys side?
Junior Rocquia got some mentions too.
Let’s hope that they all have their own little personal goals they want to achieve and succeed in that.
I am sure folkes and co. have set each player statistical targets for the season.
If the players achieve their own personal goals……the team will inevitably be ultra competitive.
My eyes are focused on the Main four attacking weapons. 1,6,7,9 Lote,Benji,Moltzen & Robbie. Keep them on the park and we are in with a big chance this season.
I love my Tigers!
