Cutting Twal?
Our best front rower.
Who is this guy.
Ridiculous suggestion,
Don't get me wrong, I like Twal and particularly his barnstorming run last year, but you need to take the Leb glasses off Mr Demps, as he was on the field more often than not when WT were being outscored. Hopefully Alex can become our best up front this season, though he will need to raise his level at least a couple of notches to do so.

Anyone who can actually be a class 6, or even a reasonable one will do

So where 12 others.

Mikaele and Liddle, with a little luck and remaining injury-free both future Rep Players.

Matterson for his undoubted versatility.

I think a fit Fonua running hard close to the line off some good ball will impress a lot this year!
I agree, I'm optimistic of Fonua this year.

But a semi fit fonua dropping high balls will get crucified 😉

Not to his face Steve :lol: well not by me anyway.
I think the 'under the high ball' isnt that relative these days anyway.. Kicks to the wingers happens every now and then but not as much as it used to. He can be a game breaker on his day, I'd rather that than the other options we have on the wing. We need points.

Yep I’m with you. I’d like to see him get a chance - not sure whether centre or wing. Good kickers can target him. I disagree with the argument he was inconsistent- he played well before injury and then after injury was slowly getting better each week.

I was looking at some old highlights of fonua when he was in the superleague, he has plenty of talent, and seems to be decent under the highball, he just needs to keep in form thats all

I think overall, Fonua's ability under the high ball is below average and if he doesn't improve this first and foremost, he wont be seeing much first grade at all...

Probably Brooks and Mbye who both should get better and better. Looking forward to some of the young players also even if not in NRL. Cini looks a real talent.

Garner for me.
This guy reminds me so much of Beaver Menzies. Tackles hard, runs great lines and good speed for an edge backrower.
He could be anything.

Yes! Great comparison. I really like this kid and your comparison between his style and Beaver’s style is spot on. Now, if only we had a Cliffy!!

He’ll be hated and labaled a plodder 6 rounds in.

It will happen, gaurenteed. Eisenhuth was pretty popular when he debuted if you can believe it. He was turned on pretty fast.
