i would say another team in NZ…

@fred said in Wests Tigers v Penrith Trial *Live Thread:

I disagree re logen Dillon and what a silly statement to say he isn’t ready for opens football, he isn’t even on a development contract , so obviously they are not going to play him in first grade this year, , hasn’t ever trained with first grade not once and he told me on Saturday night he just started training with cc after they came back from Xmas break, has way more upside than many others and seen him lay on a few tries with good passes last year in jersey Flegg game against bulldogs at Belmore as one example, if you watch football correctly you will know talau is a back rower, we have tried for some reason to turn him into a centre, he doesn’t have the speed or lateral movement to defend in centres, and was moved to five eighth at the age of 16 by his father who coached bulldogs sg ball, cini shows potential, but he has massive amounts of work to do in defence like most young backs,defence was poor all year in if last year but carries football very well, I’ve actually seen him play fullback on a few occasions he is horrible in that position, Hoffman looked solid but doesn’t look like he has any speed imo, like to see more.scolari I like but he has no skill he is fast and runs hard that’s it, got into clear many times in jersey flegg doesn’t what to do, but they are young and deserve a go

Are you his dad because you seem to know a lot about that age group from the dogs and you talk him up 🙄. All good if you are

Logen Dillon was ordinary, he has no idea on how to play fullback and should go back to the wing where he goes better, he’s got some speed but can’t pass. Maybe he’s just not ready to play opens this year.
Cini shows promise but if the fullback doesn’t play as a link he won’t see the ball, which happened
Talau needs to work on his defensive reads
Scholari has pace and is very strong probably burnt a bit of energy playing at this level which affected his speed
Hoffman is a good signing and will get better for the experience
Madden’s kicking was good but just lacked some attacking vision which will get better with experience and maybe a constant playing group around him in CC.
Johns will be great in cc this year and could be a dark horse for #30 if nobody of note gets signed
Most of those mentioned will go back to JF as better players for the experience.
I think the JF boys are going to have a good year along with CC.
Against the Warriors we’ll get more of a form line for NRL and even then I’m not too worried as it’s all about blowing out the cobwebs after a hard preseason
Good luck to all 🤞

Agree with just about all you say except for Scholari.

Whilst he was on for his 18 minutes, the Riff had the ball for 75% of the time. The two chances he got (would have been tries), he was not passed the ball. How he got his energy burnt I don’t know, it certainly wasn’t in attack. Had two nice passes as well from DH after he wasn’t passed the ball. I think he did well - with very, very limited opportunities.

Nervous energy. It’s a big moment for these young ones and I liked him last year 😉

Played injured at the back end of the season, well that’s what Hodgo said when I asked him

Has it been noticed if the backs are having any dedicated sprint training? We arent the fastest with backs but good sprint training can help in making best use of your pace and burst through speed.

Shervington, the lunch box, was working with some of the boys during the break. Non compulsory of course

Moylan… The riff fans wanted him gone so he left to the peptides to prove a point. Now the peptides fans want him gone so people on here think he could prove a point. There’s a reason why 2 clubs have been willing to offload him so it’s a pass from me, surely the no DH policy is still valid

@avocadoontoast it does it will never change unless it’s waived by the player

If he did sign an NRL contract with us then he is utilising the 10 day cooling off period to make sure it’s the best deal. If he hasn’t signed anything then I’d be tempted to pull the offer. It’s becoming a farce!
