    Great stuff. Hopefully jmk can develop a cool style running game as he is very fast for a hooker (nrl.com once said he was faster than cook)

    His defence has impressed me a lot. For a small figure he knows how to wrap the ball. I think his running game has improved a lot as well.

    I mentioned mid way through the 2018 season that he will become one of the comps best utilities.. I still think he could fill in anywhere on the park, even as a roaming forward. If he continues doing well as a rake he'll be a sure thing in the 17 for a long time.

    Some can't wait for new signings.
    We must understand that players we keep are needed in the future as well. And JMK is one resigning just as good as a new one.

    Solid squad player but that's about it right now. Really shouldn't be a starting 9 but if he can improve as much as he did last year with this coming season then maybe he could be something more.

    I’m fine with this.
    It’s not like there are any real superstar hookers available that we’re missing out on.
    He improved shitloads last season and could be anything with another season or two under his belt. Damien Cook was playing reserve grade, 2 seasons before he played origin.

    You gotta hand it to JMK. He got dropped from the halves early on and in most cases players would have a sook and sit in reserves until they get the chance to jump ship. He’s worked on his game and improved massively. Still a way to go but these are the types of players you want in and around the club during hard times

    I don't see how anyone can expect us to make massive signings, or even young players with potential who can't get a start elsewhere for next season when apparently we are finally getting to the end of this cap fiasco, plus the appeal of coming to the club isn't great atm.

    I could be wrong, but I don't see any great prospects being recruited until at least 2021.

    Or maybe with the likes of Renouf, Wakeham, Okunbor getting a taste of FG we could have a solid squad that will compete and could surprise us all next year

    I think we're going to be competitive next season. Hopefully a few of our young outside backs are pushing for selection during the year. We've hopefully gotten through the phase where the bulk of the squad are being overwhelmed by the pressure. From my seat on the couch it looked like our biggest losses were when we shot ourselves in the foot with repetitive errors. After some poor decisions by the refs we'd try playing too expansively to chase points and wind up leaking them due to errors. It took some time, but we looked like we fixed that up and played composed football.

    I hope his improvement is exponential and he smashes it next year.

    Happy for dogs to resign jmk, glad we arent after mc culloch, but still think segyaro in 14 would be ideal.

    Thoroughly deserved new contract. One of the most improved layers in our squad this year, and he finally nailed down a position and made it his own. You have to give the kid credit for this!
    He regularly made 40-50 tackles a game, with few misses, and as the season went on he became better and better at choosing when to run. He was also quite possibly the only Bulldogs player to kick a 40/20 this year??....
    I would hope that Pay or Price have the sense to invite Jason Hetherington down during the offseason so that he can spend some time with his son and JMK and school them on the nuances of being a really good hooker.
    I'm more then happy for JMK to be our starting hooker next year, and I think he will only get better after training at hooker all year.

    Another one of the many players we’ve had over the years that has the odd good game and everyone gets excited and thinks they may have a future. Makeshift hooker at best...

    Agree. Did we wait till we missed out on Korisau before resigning him. Assuming he didn’t have other good offers
