    Surely u didn't share your opinion without reading into the context of the conversation before sounding like an absolute dick head did you?

    The comment made was about stamina... The kids mentioned are guns no doubt but still have a fair bit to go to topple Tolman in the fitness department.

    Haas plays more minutes than Tolman and is more effective in every area except leadership during his stints. It's unfair to compare Tolman to Haas tho as he's a prodigy and the prototype Prop moving forward.

    Tolman stamina is overrated, who cares how long you can go when there's minimal impact.

    I agree he definitely shouldn't be doing what he does as he doesn't offer much impact but he does do the job and his been doing it for a fair few years now whilst getting smashed in the process... No disrespect to the beast that Haas is but its only logical to think he needs to do the shit work as well as covering and supporting for those fair few years straight to overtake Tolman.

    You can never disregard the fact Tolman punches above his weight too which would probably result in exerting more energy but then again Haas is probably heavier.

    We didn't get beaten 58 nil yet Haas and Fafita did so the 1st thing they can improve on is not being pea hearts and learning to tackle effectively. tolman is an 8 out of 10 defensive forward in the middle 3rd and has the capacity to stay on the paddock for 80 minutes. Comparing him to Haas and fafita is like comparing apples to oranges. The best thing we did was lose Klemmer because we had 2 of the same types of player. Comparisons aside the addition of an offensive style forward that can play prop and do the minutes would really balance up the side. I think to omaga, if he can lose 5 or 6kg, could be a top tier prop because he has an offload in traffick and he can also take a crash ball for a try.

    Mate, that is fantastic that you have the courage to talk about this publicly, you are among friends. Movember is done but Doodlember should be a thing we support. This might help mate..

    Once again your jumping the gun Fincho... Nobody said Haas doesn't have stamina just questioning how somebody can measure what Haas and co have done so far in their rookie seasons compared to Tolman who has been doing it for multiple seasons.

    And apology accepted mate...

    fair point, but Jacko is our leader and has been the rock through the hard times. I think we will lose a lot more than a player if he leaves. His leadership improved a lot last year. I wouldn't want him just for sentiment though, he's a great player and I just hope Pay puts him at lock where he belongs.

    But why use us? No-one wants to come to the Dogs. Better to use the Storm or Roosters if you want to bump up their price.

    Lol yeah no one would believe either of those 2 teams were that desperate to try and sign every single player that comes up.

    I'm convinced Pay won't play Jackson at lock because he wants him on the field for the 80 as captain. Tolman and Napa as starting props also doesn't really help the situation, lacks the punch you want from a proper frontrow combo and doesn't really allow Jackson to play to his strengths through the middle.
