    Hi @Billy. How’s Cooper gone this seems like he’s still scoring tries but appears to be less hype about him than last year?? Could he be a decent back up FB to Ponga or Watson? Do you think he’s why Meaney was allowed to go?

    One of our best, especially towards the end of the season.
    I think he had 3 games of reserve grade and only looked fair at the level, but Meaney was shocking his first half dozen games in the seniors.
    I forgot Fermor scored last week, so Cooper and Fermor are both on 15 tries now.

    So with some work perhaps a good back up?

    The problem is that he plays a very different style to Ponga and Meaney, but he'd play similar to Watson I think.
    He doesn't do any playmaking, but runs a million miles every game and backs up every break. He is always there to score when anyone makes a break.

    Somehow Brodie Jones got his first game of the year last week after playing reserve grade all season, but this week they said Saulo and Jones can't play.
    Starling is the guy who makes the big difference in this grade though. We have plenty of forwards - only 1 really hardworking hooker.

    our next 2 games will be live cast on the nswrl website - so If you have the right setup you can watch them on your TV, or on your computer if you are living in the stoneage like me.

    no - this year the finals of all the lower grades will be a week before GF day.
    I think they might play the NSW v Qld champs games before GF though - don't think it's been announced yet.

    It’s realy unfair that Flegg don’t get to play on Grand Final day. They definitely deserve it.

    It's another case of poor scheduling and includes not being able to attend games and see earlier games, Flegg and reserves.
    Can't understand why all three grades can't be played together on g/f day

    Good article from Toohey, pointing out that our defence and fitness won the game.
    To give the Roosters their due, they made far less handling errors and won the penalty count with good discipline, which meant they dominated possession and field position all first half, and just our defence kept them scoreless all first half.

    Matt Cooper had a big hand in most of those tries.
    I counted up his games and he only played 14 regular season games in Flegg for 13 tries and had 5 games in reserve grade.
    2 tries from 2 games in the finals so far.

    Hope we hang onto this kid, will be a great replacement for Guerra when he decides to hang the boots up.

    Fermor is nothing like Guerra.
    He actually reminds me a lot of Tom Hughes.
    We bought Tom as a centre/second row and turned him into a winger because he has good speed, footwork and loves to score a try - and Fermor looks the same size and build, has the same footwork and speed, loves to score a try and can run the length of the field if he has to.
    With luck Fermor will put on a bit more size and impress the coaches more than Tom has been able to - but gap running second row or centre is his go.
