Was a trial so a lot of reserve graders but Souths under Bennett had more structure than the Eels. Was in the balance with 10 to go and the Eels were throwing silly passes and not completing as their NRL team would. Souths showed a lot in denfence.
Players like Jaemon Salmon disappointed for the Eels. The winger Dunstar looks a prospect. Jai Fields was strong.
Rabbits better over all with less stand outs.
Id be very happy to run out like this.
Michael Chee Kam
Clarke is thew wildcard. He is a bit of a nutter and might just jump out of the ground with Maguire’s coaching. If not we play Aloia or Twal and bring in one of the 18,19, 20 or 21. Either way the pack and the depth is fine.
Yes we can add one more middle as 30th but we have a better squad than most.
Nofo been on the wing for years scoring some great tries yet lets one or two tries in a game
excusesfor years it is the centres fault we change centres same thing he is a defensive liability
time to try new wingers we havent made semis for 9 years and nofo seems to be a constant in that period.
Missed the finals 9 years in a row and it’s the wingers fault. Good one.
nah, its also Brooks fault. Going into his 7th year of potential. He’s only played 130 games, he’ll come good in a few more years.
Now we are talking lol.
Watching the Eels v Souths trial. Have to say we will look complete once we add Stefano Utoikamanu. Id be happy with that pack.
Doing OK is he?
He is hard to stop. Not a lot of game time but short stints and post contact metres are off the charts. Finds his feet quick as well.
Watching the Eels v Souths.
Stefano Utoikamanu looking extremely good with his few touches. Standout player for mine however is young Blake Taaffe from the Bunnies. As a half he looks a real prospect. Reynolds and Walker should hold their spots for another couple of seasons but this kid looks ready. They might struggle to keep him if he comes on.
A few of our forwards need to take the next step and stay fit
Aloiai ,the Twuth and Mikaele must step up
You say “must” i say will. Natural progression.
Fitness is on the Gods shoulders …but more importantly they all have to play 20 + games for us to stay competitive against the stronger packs
Our spine will need every piece of help they can get …our forwards getting at the very least parity every week is crucial to a Top 8 finish
Thyell do more than that, theyll dominate most teams. All except the top 4 kind of teams we have covered in the forwards.
