how old is he?
and do you think he is good enough for first grade next year?

i thought he was great when he came of the bench against the Cowboys.

He's 20. With a full off-season training with the FG squad Dwyer will certainly be a better player next year compared to this year. He's sure to get bigger and stronger and next season he's definitely a chance to come off the bench. If we end up signing Lima and Cayless I think he'll start in State Cup but I also think it won't take him long to make his mark there, particularly if he's puts on another 4-5kg.

Very good player. A fast tall back rower with good hands. He'll see a fair bit of NRL in 2010

reminds be a lot of trent waterhouse, tall guy who will really fill out. can run like a center and has a great offload.

in saying that, i still think jason shirnack was the pick of the backrowers in the 20s. he just needs some time in the gym to catch up to dwyer.

Agreed can cover centre as well........

Depending on future sigings would not surprise if Dwyer pushes very hard for a bench spot from the get go......
Wests Tigers don't need a Coach.. The playing group has taken over..

As per the 2nd hand comments from Gus Gould that the current WT coach views him as a Bradley Clyde clone then if he is 1/2 as good he will be a permanent 1st grader!

If he gets his fair shake with injuries over his career he will be a beauty!

Hopefully one of the Wests Tigers greats?

Great thing about Dwyer is the timing re the salary cap. Hopefully by the time he is developed enough to demand big salary, players like Payten will have moved on. Otherwise we are going to have huge cap problems in the next few years. Especially if Lote's salary is backloaded.

You got that right. Clyde is one of the best Lock Forwards that I have ever seen. He used to be one of my favourite players, even though he was a Raider. The Raiders sure had some excellent players back then: Mullens, Big Nose, Stuart, Clyde, Lazarus, Walters. They were a good team to watch.
