    Always seems to perform without getting a crack at 1sts, top try scorer last season and probably fairly high this, give him a go and sign him for next season

    Hughes is now 4th highest try scorer for the comp on 11 from 17 games and our top try scorer.
    over his career he has 39 tries in 56 games.

    Yeah I'd love for Tom to have a crack at firsts. Deserves a few games to prove himself.

    Crazy side.
    17/18 year old in the centres.
    Only hooker named is Yates - maybe Butts has spent all year practising hooker - he did a bit of it last year.
    No Lamb - he has been getting back rubs from the trainers inbetween plays, so possibly has a back issue.

    Trying to remember when a kid joined the club to play Ball and ended up in reserve grade in one year. Can't remember it happening.
    Toa has had an amazing transformation. He must love the gym. He has gone from a skinny kid to a beast in 6 months. I think he only got a spot in Ball in round 1 because Bradman Best was injured.

    Think Cooper Vuna at 18 years old.
    Just over 6 foot
    Starting to look like a brick outhouse
    Would rather run over guys than around them, but runs pretty fast when in the clear.

    If Yates, as reported goes to 1sts will need hooker, possibly Cogger to 1/2 and Hazard to hooker save further draw on u20's

    From all reports the reserve grade side were on the sidelines cheering for the under 20s as they smashed NZ to wrap up the under 20s title, and it sounds like everyone was in really high spirits and didn't get stinking drunk or anything.
    I think the club is being very harsh on guys who were finding something to celebrate and be joyous about in our dismal season.
    If i'd have been there i'd have bought them all a drink.

    Toa is struggling at this level, not a huge surprise.

    10-6 to Penrith at halftime. Very scrappy game.
