    Thought he played during his younger years?

    Lol could be a baptism by fire if not.

    He played fullback for the first grade side in Noosa as a 17 year old, never played fullback with us though. First game against the Storm will be massive, Smith kicking from dh will really work him over.

    Mbye summer 2016:

    We're fortunate enough to have another opportunity to take the comp by the horns. We've had a big summer, spent a lot of time together over the summer and that's what it's about, spending time together, blah blah blah

    Wash, rinse and repeat.

    Never hear any player say anything less than positive about their pre-season training.

    I understand they have to say something but i wish someone can tell them to just shut up and put the energy for the coming season.

    My view of a modern day FB is a 5/8th that can catch kicks.

    I wonder what the fuck they were training if they weren’t doing cardio and skills.

    Looking at them in person, they are all super fit looking and some have even bulked up since the end of last season so they must've hit the gym pretty hard. Seems like Pay recognised they lacked in skills development and has added that in already. Normally don't do ballwork until new year but he obviously saw a need to get in early. Good on him.

    We finished last or near last in every attacking category so it's good to see Pay making ball skills a priority

    Do you read much into that?
    I'm pretty sure I hear that every year

    But I'm happy with dean pays positional changes and seems like he is shaken the whole joint up which is exactly what we needed, because even when we were winning games it was boring as hell to watch.
