    Alarm Bells Mahoney vs JMK

    It was posted previously that Mahoney doesn’t run from dummy half because Gutherson pushes him out of the way. Saw it a number of times last night. Every time Parra get on the front foot and a quick play the ball Gutherson jumps in. I think his running game will be good next year when he has no...

    Opinion Our Nsw cup side

    DUFTY looked dangerous a couple of times. But quiet in attack overall. Didn’t make a many soft tackles as usual. Dropped 1 easy bomb. Lume lume. Had one of his better games , dropped an easy kick. No the answer. Credence - Not a centre probably not a winger. Should be our NSW Cup fullback next...

    Agree. But ZDC lost the game with a stupid penalty on the 4th then a horrible tackle in the resulting set. Coach hooked him as a result. Was going ok up till then.

    I know the poor kid only got injured today. But he is likely looking at 6-9 months rehab. Do the rules allow him to be contracted as a second tier contract then be eligible to play after Round 10 or 12 whenever that rule kicks in. That way he is not in our top 30 but will still be cleared to...

    Luke Thompson consolidated thread

    Let me start by saying Thompson is currently our best forward and has produced some great performances lately. Up to then he was underwhelming for mine despite the 14 day quarantine period.

    If anyone is worried about Schoup’s defence , have a close look at Brent Naden. He doesn’t put his body on the line anywhere near as much as Schoup and his reads in a far superior side to the dogs is worrying at the least. Schoup in my opinion is a better defender than Naden. And I add that...

    Jack Miller, Ben Suefale and Josh Daley. Seufale is a nuggety tackle breaking forward. Could be good off the bench for impact. Ex tigers under 20 player of the year I believe. Josh Daley has impressed in his last 4 games at dummy half. Jack Miller impressed yesterday, don’t know much about him.

    Averillo Can not organise!!

    Certainly not setting the world on fire but just pointing out there is gradual improvement. Noticeably his defence. He was pretty good one on one with Kikau today. He got a few line drop outs. Certainly has a better running game than Flanagan. I do hold some hope.
  69. Longtimedog

    Averillo 25 tackles zero misses. A line break and a couple of set restarts. Certainly an improvement and a better option than Lewis and Flanagan.
