    Not really sure how James Graham got Man Of the Match last night.

    He was admirable and performed well, including the try saver on Corey Oates.

    However, next to nobody seemed to want to talk about Klemmer playing 60+ minutes, taking 22 runs and earning 266 metres on a pitch that better resembled a swimming pool than rugby league ground.

    It was a superman / origin like performance and I think that sort of performance will spring board him as one of the starting props for NSW this year.

    For the record, my 3-2-1.

    3. Klemmer (by a mile)
    2. Daylight
    1. Frawley.

    Again, the channel 9 commentators didn't spend a lot of time talking about how composed he was on a very difficult night, especially considering it was his debut. Hats off to him, we finally have a kicking game.

    For straight out best on ground:
    3 Klem
    2 Old Man
    1 Frawley

    But for most important contribution to the Dogs team
    3 Frawley
    2 Klem
    1 Old Man

    Frawley didn't outshine in the traditional sense, but for giving the dogs what they needed as a team, he was sensational.

    Reminds me of Hodko: isn't a three knees stepper and speed machine, but does the basics of being a halfback very well (at least he certainly did last night).

    Well done fellas. Learn what offside means and you might win a few on the trot

    I agree with this my friend.
    And is des finally working the math out? A good 7 plus a good 6 equals a fluent 13.

    1. Frawley.
    2. Jackson.
    3. Graham.
    Should silence a lot of critics who said Frawley and Abbey are to small. Both played very well.

    Abbey did Fuck all...

    He did nothing a fullback isn't expected to do!

    He caught high bombs? Not one of them had any pressure on him, every fullback even in under 15's is expected to catch them!

    He's positional play is horrible and he got badly caught out on the 2nd tackle for the Broncos try!

    Yeah he scored a try again it was set up by Jackson and the FB is expected to be in support!

    Abbey has to improve in the next couple of weeks or else we desperately need to bring back Hoppa... Abbey constantly overruns the plays and once he is hit by the defense falls like a sack of potatoes (No meters after contact).

    All these Abbey lovers were watching a different game... He is NSW cup standard at best!

    I agree with your points for the most part.
    I like most here are just happy for now to have a fullback who does what a fullback is suppose to do. And the same goes for our halfback. I don't think these two will be virtuosos but they will allow others to shine and concentrate solely on their own game. . You will see a better Jackson, Reynolds, Graham, Klemmer and Morris bros.
    As for Tolman, he won't get better. He will always be Tolman. But I'll take comfort if he doesn't get worse.

    3 Frawley - His kicking game gave us an edge we haven't had for years
    2 Reynolds - Played some inspirational football
    1 Graham - A real captain's knock
