Beau finally gets a run at FB

Well, myself and dozens of others were calling for Beau to at least get a shot at #1 in the trials. He may not be offering a whole lot in terms of support play and a passing game… but 12 carries for 125 metres in one half of football has gone a long way to making sure our sets get off to a great start from kick returns.

Go Beau!

How good was he? I think he’s found his spot.

he was excellent! hopefully they keep the same side for next week

He was brilliant! My man of the match.

He was safe, very busy, plays with passion and is strong on kick returns too. Everything you want from your fullback.

Couldn’t agree more, deserves to be there next week. Very well played by Beau, really got into it tonight.

Long time critic of Beau on the wing.

Yet to be tested under the high ball but so far he offers exactly what we need and if he continues when Tuiaki comes back I think we have our back 3.

Really excellent fullbacks performance

had an absolute blinder. workrate was excellent.

I like how he sniffed out the ball to get us on the front foot a fair few times tonight. He played a blinder tonight and was always involved. Great game Beau!

22 carries for 220 metres. 😲

He hasn’t ever been a player you expect big things out of but at fullback he gets involved and plays with passion.

He really performed well there.

Ryans turning me around. I thought he was a complete waste for most of last season but up until todays game he’s been solid this season & tonight he was fantastic. Not really tested under the high ball but played a quality game at 1.
& why would you move Tuquiri to 1 when he’s such an obvious winger!

Ryan 1
Tuquiri 2
Tuiaki 5
Moltzen 7

SOLD!!

Ryan was OK. Nothing spectacular and not really tested tonight by the sleepy eels.

He’s a bit casual in getting to the ball sometimes too.

But a world of difference better than Molzten.

Let’s see how he goes - but again, Sheens is playing a winger @ fullback. We have about 17,000 junior teams. There is not one first grade standard Fullback among them? If not, why not?

Atleast you admit it and so was i but i think his improvement started last year and his just going from strength to strength.

Alot more mungrel in his play and his fighting in tackles alot more then what he was.

Apart from Liam Fulton coming back it would be pretty hard to change a winning side, Beau you were great, that’s why I named my new dog after you!.
