Can't help but get caught up in his story. And damn the NRL needs good stories rn
Would be great to see but there's countless backs that would be picked over him. Dugan, Ferguson, Hayne, Tedesco, Moylan, Trbojevic & Jennings all fighting for spots. The Morris bros & Dylan Walker would probably also be picked before him.
Dugan's out - that's 1 down.
It's a pipe dream bit I think it would be pretty cool.
I'm over the Morris'! Thought Moylan was great tonight and hard to go past Ferguson and trbojevic I guess...
Isn't Rossy a QLDer anyway?
I would think not starting his career with Coogee, but maybe that falls within ****head Father Mal's Quexit? He would not have been allowed to play for City otherwise.
Maybe if it were a few years back when Daniel Toupo got selected on the wing Rossy might have been a chance but not now. As many of you have pointed out NSW is spoilt for choice in outside backs ATM ......
This is 100% correct, with Sione and Burher being 80 players plus Barnett playing 50 plus we could have the twins plus Pauli and possibly another 2 props rotating through the front row with Stone giving Barnett a break and also filling in at edge back row while Burher plays hooker and Levi has a spell. Right now though Sione is only real 80 forward ......
I think the main issue with having the twins and Pauli on the field at the same time is defence. All 3 of those guys struggle with their lateral movement in defence, I think that's why Brown never has the twins on at the same time ....
Good points again!
Though if we have the momentum in that first 10-15 we wont be doing much D... we need to start intimidating teams and bashing meters up the guts...
My view would be to have pauli do the first 10mins at lock then pull him off for 5-8mins to then replace on of the twins at prop.. that first twin can replace the second twin 5mins later.
The more we have 2-3 big units making ground taking 3-4 guys to stop the better our chances of tiring the other team down later in each half.
Letting teams control the tempo against us and ruck is how we lose every week... gotta try something new.
Bash em i say.
I guess it's a 'risk v reward' decision for brown to make, you're right in saying if Brown went that way he should start with them, having all 3 on the field when they're a bit tired could be disastrous. Having Stocky and starling on at the same time is a worry for me as well as neither get much go forward. Maybe that's why Brown mixes them all up ?
None of our forwards get much go forward.
Do we have forwards?
I feel the twins are slowly getting better as the year goes but Starling and Stocky who surprised me earlier in the year are getting tired ......
Starling surprised you? In how many metres he doesn't make?
In the trial game against Canberra he was aggressive and looked like he might be value at the low dollars he gets.
Tbh i was suprised in that game as well... he targeted Boyd and won the battle!
Though when the rest of that Canberra pack was mounties players it was easy to look dominate
He and Stocky went ok in the first few rounds, they're doing nothing now .....
Time to drop them and give Mataora and mickey Paea a run
Maybe the starlo and stocky will be back in form after this little break they have had
