Now that we have missed out on LM, let’s take a look at our 1-5…objectively.
Cory: tries very hard, no passing game, weak under the high ball, small. I think it is fair to say he is in the bottom tier of NRL fullbacks.
Nofa: improved considerably back end of last season. In no way a rep level winger though and no X factor.
Momo: a real pro, improved a ton. Can find the line. Lacks speed, size snd power though…
Mbye: not a half, not a FB, not a hooker, likely not a center either. Nice ability to pass, but generally undersized for the position.
Jennings…can fall over the line.
Depth: very little…State cup backs are terrible / the young guys we do have coming through are still kids.
Size, speed and power all lacking.
Tommy is the X factor…will make an enormous difference if he has an immediate impact.
JAC and AJ would offer legit speed and try scoring ability. We need something. Those last couple of roster spots have to be backs with X factor imo.
As it stands, that 1-5 is the worst in the comp. possibly Titans as bad. But all 1-5 lack key skills snd none have X factor.
