    Jayden Okunbor fighting for career

    It sounds like you’ve marked a 20 year olds card in this position after just 4 games at halfback. I saw enough last week to know that he can develop into a very high quality half. He created space and passed when the time was right, he ran the ball when it was on, he kicked well (very sweet...

    You’re absolutely spot on mate. Jake is showing a mouth-watering amount of promise at halfback and just keeps improving each week.

    Poor comparison. Cody Walker always had the talent and ability, it was his off-field antics that held him back. If he had his shit together from the get-go then he debuts much earlier.
  28. Horse

    Opinion Watson heleta

    And the game has changed a lot since 15 years ago, particularly the physical attributes required to compete as a winger. The average height across all wingers going around this weekend is 187.25cm. Not one is shorter than 6” and very few are shorter than 6”2’ Coaches don’t pick short wingers...
  29. Horse

    Opinion Watson heleta

    I was waiting for someone to mention To’o but fact is even To’o is 6ft and towers over Heleta. Heleta’s height is a massive handicap in stepping up to first grade and is undoubtedly the reason he hasn’t seen a promotion despite being consistently strong in the lower ranks for a number of years.
  30. Horse

    Opinion Watson heleta

    His form certainly merits at least a look-in but unfortunately for Watson his height is a real issue. He might get away with it in the lower grades without too many problems but the step up to first grade is huge as he’ll be marked up against superior physical specimens with great aerial...

    We were a better team in 2012 with Barba in it. We won 6 more more regular season games than what we did in 2014 which is significant.
