Just noticed a few handy players running around playing NSW Cup or Qld Cup this weekend
For me the most surprising is Corey Oates from the Broncos , playing for the CQ Capras
How Bennett sees more in Gavet than he does in Oates amazes me
Corey was naughty a few weeks back!
He has alot of potential though… Reminds me alot of Boyd Cordner!
Sione M, not Chanel M. Still don’t know where they’re playing next season.
Maybe Bennett felt Oates needed a kick up the bum if he was cruising a little too much in pre season…? I’d take him though!
Was chatting to a mate yesterday who had been speaking to Michael Hagan. I understand the Knights are very confident that these boys will stay next season. Hard to see how they could say no to the Dogs who always have cash.
Oates looks very good to me, is he still eligible for NYC???
He is definitely a back rower long term, the fact that he handled center and wing is testament to his talent. Way too good for QLD cup.
Sione and Mamo wont be there long, both stars. I cant see BJ, McManus and Gidley keeping them out long.
Gidley might have to move somewhere else, he is not a better fullback than either Sione or Mamo.
I think Kurt’s first man picked status for a decade despite not really being the best player in any spot is evidence that being a really good bloke helps and coaches try sometimes to hard to pick guys who have excellent all round footy skills but dont really exceed in any given role. (Austin fits this bill also)
