He might have a go but that is not good enough. He looks stuffed after 5 min. In my opinion, 1st grade is too fast for him.
When he makes a tackle, he struggles to get up fast enough to get back in line. I don't like bagging young blokes starting out but he does not have what it takes to have a 1st grade career unless there is massive improvements in him.

Haha nah I don't buy it. You've got something to do with Spence. Your love of him makes no sense. He has no less of a crack than any other numerous players that have received your and others vitriol and you haven't defended him. He's your mate or something.

This forum really is a harsh crowd.

I'm sure the bloke is giving it his all but he is a bit out of his depth at the moment. I think there are better options like big Ava.

No Allan . INK made comparisons to Johhny Skandalis last week and we are trying to point out just how far away his statement was .Inks a big boy with big shoulders,and is always ready to put the slipper into somebody who he dosent agree with .

I thought Spence mad a bit of effort in defence although the quality of it was lacking but 15 tackles in 22 minutes not too bad. However only 2 runs for 14 meters is just soft. Hasnt shown anything to tell me he should be in first grade even with the injuries we have. Sue on the other hand looks like he can make it

LOL....you BS artist 1/4, I didnt compare him to Skando... I said the try he scored was similar to a couple Skando had scored at the same ground in the same spot off lucky kicks
You make your own luck and rewarded later in the game with a pie which reminded me so much of one or two Skando scored in the same spot - one against Bris in our first game??? ...and the other against the Cowboys in 05 when we finally qualified for our first ever semis series.

viewtopic.php?f=119&t=17298
Take it outta context much hmmm????

I think you'll find I waited a bit longer than their first 2 or 3 games before giving it to guys like Fitzy & Moltz

He is having a go no doubt , but I think he is struggling with the speed of NRL

Maybe give him some time to adjust , coming back from a serious injury and only his 3rd game

He is, no doubt - on both counts....he looks stuffed quick, whether its his running action or what I dunno...its a big step up, Im sure Potters looking towards the future here

He's the least impressive of the debutants no doubt. I too, can't understand his selection as imo he provides nothing. Would much rather buchanan/fulton starting at lock to tighten up the middle third with ava on the bench. On the other side of the spectrum, sue looks the goods. Give him BMM's role of running angles off the halves and watch him excel

I don't think his running action is why he's stuffed quick. It's the jump in intensity and level to the NRL. At the moment the bloke is a little out of his depth. He may come good and from the outside looking in, it looks like NSW state cup would be better for him at the moment. But injuries to the top squad mean someone has to do the job.

I'm not sure whether he's had a disrupted pre-season but it looks like he may have. Those who do are always behind the play a little.

In an ideal world he'd be another player that the coach could shuffle between State Cup and NRL bench to bring on properly... we simply are galaxies away from an ideal world!

It might be because he isn't overly dominant defensive wise Ink , and he seems to be getting caught in the ruck which is putting extra pressure on a already struggling defensive line

We just had absolutely no control over the Bulldogs ruck and they just kept rolling over us

When you are just coming back from injury and trying to get used to the extra speed that just makes everything worse

Just my opinion , anyone wanting to bag our forwards might want to also get stuck into our more experienced non performers Blair ,BMM in particular

I meant his running action looks a little odd to me and even at the start of games he looks buggered.

Him starting last week and again last night surprised me greatly but shows just what a hole injury wise we are in

In an ideal setting he'd - and the other debutants - would be eased in gradually when things are smooth, but desperate times call for desperate measures

Its one thing us mug fans giving it to seasoned first graders playing poor, its another laying the boot into rookies on debut
