This Hudson Young goes very well
Apart from gifting walker an open passage to the try line he was really good.
Are you sure that was him? Young defends left side, Walker scored on the Raiders’ right side
He was number 12 no?
Cogger always had the goods. Being outside Lamb hobbled him.
Both Cogger and Lamb are going great now they are working with coaches who can develop young players.
Meaney and Tom Starling have also come on in leaps and bounds this year.
I think all four of those players would go alright behind the forward pack we have now. Cant keep all the juniors and its good to see them going well at other clubs.
Thank goodness the rooters have him.
Brendan Elliot is killing it. Dessy is a very good coach.
No he was No.11
Whitehead was No.12
Easy to get mixed up from the long shot
Tyrone Amey got 69 fantasy points for Easts - 20 runs for 171 metres - 47 tackles, 2 missed in 71 minutes at lock
Brock Lamb got 64 fantasy points for Norths - 3 try assists, 2 line break assists, 1 try, 5 goals from 6 attempts.
Tom Starling got 62 fantasy points - 2 tries, 1 try assist, 1 linebreak assist, 34 tackles, 0 missed
Brock Lamb got 1,000 fantasy points in an amazing performance for the Newcastle Knights last night
Tyrone Robberts had a great game again.
I do feel a bit sorry for him to be honest. He had to play for the Knights in a fairly under gunned team, leaves to a club in a better position than us talent wise, and gets his first shot in a game where there is no Cronk, his halves partner gets taken out within 20 minutes leaving him the main playmaker not counting Mitchell who should never play 5/8 again.
Tough to step in to a game like that and dominate.
Kurriboy he was like many players we had in that era, just not good enough.
Looked good amongst poor players than when around 1st graders didn't cut the mustard.
Unfortunately, it was the spooncession we had to have. The only way to turn the club around was to free up cap space and that meant getting rid of our higher paid players, buying cheap and cheerful, and build.
I don't lump Lamb in with that group. If, he were coming through the grades in a stronger Knights outfit, and got his proper introduction to NRL level, eased in with care rather than plonked in to get smashed every week. He would be a different player.
It was the Knights that weren't good enough in his case, not the other way around.
There's not dominating then there is lamb passing to aubussen with the defence in his face on the fifth tackle. He used to do that here, maybe he can't count to six.
He's still young with plenty of time to develop. He has the benefit of being around the current premiers, including Cronk and Keary. If he is as good as some believe, he's in the best place to ply his trade, otherwise if he doesn't then he might just not be first grade quality, regardless of the team he's in.
I don't think he will be in Trent's short list to replace Cronk.
Hodgson is out for up to 6 weeks with a broken thumb for the raiders, and their bench hooker is basically a spare forward, so you would think Starling, who is playing 80 minutes most weeks in reserve grade and killing it, should be close to a contract upgrade and some firstgrade time.
