I think Douhei has been one of our better players this year. The last two weeks though he looks busted. I reckon he’s got some injury and not playing 100%.
Grant has not been as effective and with all the media hype I’m sure teams are now ensuring his impact is limited. In saying that he shouldn’t be playing more then 60 minutes.
In terms of halves I would still go Reynolds and brooks, with walters on the bench to cover dummy half for 20 minutes. I love benji but come on, surely our big dollar halves have to eventually step up and earn their pay cheque.
If smith goes to Broncos then melbourne get Harry.
If this happens and we are out of semi contention dont play Harry blood Simpkin and Liddle or use walters or reynolds etc
We’ll be in contention all the way up to the last round. They know how to torture us.
That’s our speciality right there. Win the last round and sneak into the finals, guaranteed loss lol.
No he hasn’t
NRL 2020: Andrew McCullough shuts down ‘bizarre’ Canterbury Bulldogs rumour
McCullough has a year left on his broncos contract @$600k. He was loaned to the knights for this year only. They were hoping someone would sign him up for next year. With a serious injury he just suffered , broncos might be stuck with him.
Don’t think Stefano wanted to be there as much as Blore - maybe a different attitude when he is with us though.
If I’m being honest, nothing I’ve seen from him so far has me excited to see him here next year.
Gotta let the big fella have a pre season here, Madge is great at getting young forwards going. As much as he’s a big unit he’s never been a huge tackle buster or was whacking people, more like Payne Haas who just has a massive engine and can get through a mountain of work. At least from what I’ve seen of him
He looks like a player who doesn’t want to be at his current club and is being forced to be there. Which bodes well for him being here next year. Give him a pre season with Madge and the guy will be a beast for us.
Can’t be to good otherwise the chooks would have kept him
Once again we sign someones crap, so they can sign a marquee
A few reliable roosters fans don’t agree he is crap.
Put into perspective he has the Morris twins, Teddy, Manu, Tupou, Ikuvalu all in front of him. Add that they also have Billy Smith who has massive wraps on him - all will run around with them next year at least.
Time will tell. He is talented and we could be a good pickup. Not as though he is middle aged with a few years of reggies…
I like this signing , we aren’t paying overs for washed up players to fill our roster like we did before. Our biggest challenge now is going to be keeping the ones that turn out good because they will have big dollars chucked at them when they get out of contract.
Positives for me were that we hang in there. That’s a game we easily lose by 50 previously. Bore , wow wow wow.
Negatives - we put no pressure on their kicker at all. Grant looks like he’s playing injured. Douhei looks injured. Refs keep killing us. What’s the go with that???
Let’s put he on the wing next week. Talua to centre. Lawrence takes Chee Kam spot on bench
Yeah I agree with u Maggie, watched Lawrence last night, been a loyal tiger but has about as much penetration as Elton John at a girls school
Quote of the year lol lol lol
