    Is Fitzy really 110kgs? Watching some games from last year. Man he moves well for someone his size.

    He is naturally quite an aggressive footballer but i dont see it convert into tough defense too often. At least not in FG, maybe its a fitness thing?

    If he can improve on last year, he could be a hell of an edge backrower. Needs to fix a few things defensively, like the way he grapples, wrestles, he could have a bit more control for someone his size

    I wouldn't think he'd be quite that big, but what would I know.

    I'd believe that he's 100-105kg though, so who knows.

    He's 6'4" and a big frame, easy to hide the weight

    Fitz is a big lad. I'm 6ft and 115kgs. I felt small standing next to him.
    One player that did surprise me was Aiden Guerra, one large human. He looks a lot smaller on TV.

    Fitz is somewhere between 105 -110kg
    Nathan Ryan stated that fitz is 6'4 110kg, fitz profile in 2017 stated 108kg.
    Either way his built like a brick chithouse.

    110k is huge for an edge running forward, particularly one that moves like him. Im definitely changing my view of him. If he continues to improve he could anything

    They seem to have fixed up sione's profile as he was listed at 6'2" for a long time. I'd be asking for a refund on the tape measure tbh.

    The saifitis are really impressive in person, size wise.

    Bigger players all over the park is the way the game is going. Look at last year's grand finalists edge forwards;

    Tohu Harris 195cm 110kg
    Felise Kafusi 189cm 109kg
    NAS 200cm 115kg

    Ethan Lowe 194cm 105kg
    Gavin Cooper 197cm 108kg
    Coen Hess 190cm 114kg

    And ours (from the profiles)
    Guerra 191cm 104kg
    Fitz 192cm 107kg

    Settle down slots.

    In his defence Sione did have to play where he was plonked.

    That's Ponga's weight. Buhrer would be more like 98kg

    I think last year demonstrated that depsite having two edge backrowers that are technically gifted, fast, high work rate and full of effort, we still sucked. So this year we should try a field of big aggressive units and see what difference that makes

    Fitz is a massive human, he'd easily be 110 or close to it. If he can work out any little defensive deficiencies in his game then he doesn't even really need to improve his work rate. He's got that classic, lanky but solid body type that is perfect for a hard running second-rower & a pain to have to get in front of.

    Tolman to Titans? Still think he was worth more than a passing thought, not many quality front row players will come available in next year or two, he might be the best. What will we do if in 2019 no Lillyman and Heighinton a very real possibility.
