Canterbury Cup Team Announcement: Round 22



  • @raudallas Not #2. I meant #6. Def not #2.



  • I am sure that next season’s Canterbury Cup team will only include 2 or 3 players from today’s team. The new players will be young with greater quality. There will also be a new coach.



  • Dylan Smith was lauded as a future NRL fullback…he has no heart or commitment when attacking the ball…has shown nothing in his time @ CC



  • @tigerap Agree, hopefully Dillon can play CC next year.

    a pre season under Madge can do wonders



  • I’m looking forward to this mythical off season that is going to turn below average footballers into above average. People keep saying so and so just needs a good off season…yet the following year they are still crap.



  • I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, this team is too small, too slow and too dumb.

    Not a single player in our 17 is capable of breaking the line. Compare it to the sharks and practically every single player including their props look capable of tearing us apart. Their backs all have pace and power/skill their forwards all run hard.

    From our team maybe Bradley, seyfarth, Miller and F Smith have any chance of playing first grade. Ratu is solid, just back from injury. The rest should all be released or encouraged to leave. Most of these players are perhaps Ron Massey level at best.

    Problem is all those mentioned above need at least another 5 kgs of bulk as they’re simply too small for first grade.

    It all comes down to a complete lack of recruitment over several years. Next year will be better as there’s some talent in Flegg and no doubt Madge will recruit heavily.

    Please don’t tell me has an an NRL contract for next year? He hasn’t looked even close to NRL level all year. We’d do better to promote the Flegg fullback.

    He does, but I’d say he’s looked solid but unspectacular. Been solid in defence and under the high ball but hasn’t created enough in attack. Not easy to stand out in a rubbish team but still other fullbacks at this level can make line breaks from kick returns etc which he hasn’t done much of. If he stays he’ll still be around this squad next season but will be under pressure from Dillon and co. He may seek opportunities elsewhere if there’s any interest

    He and McIntyre are taking up valuable spots in 30 and I’m afraid are not showing much to get enthusiastic about.
    Not sure if they have a future beyond this year but of course they could prove me wrong.
