Averillo and Shoupp will make Morgan Harper redundant
Tommy has gone, so not sure it really even matters anymore? And we know the story why Tommy left so good luck to him but Jake is a big part of our future.
But can they tackle?
Morgan Harper is our next Chris Mortimer, very aggressive defender.
It’s not important that’s right but 2 kids similar age they might come up against each other in the near future. But agree I don’t want to rush Averillo.
Looks fast, but skinny.
Will need to fill out but looks to have s something about him, good luck kid.
Well I have high hopes for Harper, he really does seem to have what it takes and I want too see him get a shot to prove himself at least lol.
will hold judgment on the other two for now..!!
Not sure if the 9s are a good indication someone is ready for 1st honestly. Bit like touch footy more than anything, isn't it?
We will probably end up knocked out after our 2 games and if that happens we would have played less then a half of footy. It’s so fast paced and open that I don’t think you can really take too much out of it.
we seem to have a promising group of younger players coming through, a dominant half and hooker coming in should see us back in finals and really competing, looking forward to better times
Both were good coming through Juniors _ talau has had a size advantage which makes a difference in age divisions and also that he was playing in the halves was more heavily involved in games. (I don't know why Tigers play him in the centres) - Averillo stepped up when playing in the halves for Flegg.
Completely agree. Fun to watch, but little to learn from it imo. Just hope we don't get any injuries ...
What I miss most about not seeing the Dogs week-in-week-out is actually watching the juniors come through. Getting to the game super early and seeing all the grades. Nothing better than that.
Really appreciate you guys giving this insight into the youngesters as I really don't have a scooby about how good they are. Cheers!
Both have good sporting dna..willie talau and cliff and jason van blerk(socceroos).Still believe averillo is a half
Might end up back in the halves but I defenitely think he could do a very good job for us at centre and still learn a lot playing there and further develop his game. Our current side lacks a lot of what he has and I feel we just need to find a place for him and he will take his opportunity with both hands.
Agree..sbw had to start in the centres and even thurston was in the centres in flegg and reserves...i rate averillo highly as an attacking half back...his defence isnt up to 1st grade in the centres..but ben barba couldnt tackle when he first came through
The most encouraging part of this post makes me think that we have seen the last of Montoya in first grade
Okunbors defence also isn't up to firstgrade but it looks like he will be starting the year lol. Anyway with Wakeham, Averillo and BBO we have a fair bit of potential in the halves, surely at least one of them will come good.
Mate - your dreaming
Surely Pay will see the liability Okunbor is? Also Meaney and Smith finished last year strongly on the wing it makes more sense to have Harper and Hoppa as the centres.
Does not like to pass
