    The twins seem to have been around forever, but they are still 23 and have their best years ahead of them.

    He has had a hard time of it for the last few seasons but imo on his game he is as good as Daniel.

    So he should be. He was looking great in both trials and rounds 1 and 2 before the suspension of the season began. On his day he can be as good, if not , better than Daniel.

    Dan’s good for half a season then goes missing for the rest. He’s still yet to have a decent full season. Both brothers are great at their best and injury free.

    Maybe, but we've yet to see it for more than a short period at a time. Dan has a track record spanning multiple seasons. Dan looked on the verge of a massive season this year, he said in an interview he respected Klemmer too much last year & let him take all the ball & he wants to square it back up this year. I can't wait to see him back, hopefully he's maintained the rage over the break.

    Not putting down Jacob either, he wouldn't be costing us barely anything & has as much if not more potential than any other bum we could scrape up from elsewhere so I'd be persevering with him as long as we can until he either comes good or proves he can't do it.

    Has Jacob even had 6 wow games in his entire career? Legit question? Dan was very good at SOO and people are comparing the 2? Honestly?

    Even at Dans worse he still runs for more than 120metres and close to 8-10 metres a carry. If he was playing for another team he'd be "Just what we need!"

    Not really comparing the two as Dan has been good and fairly consistant and gone ahead of his brother . Its just that Jacob has shown glimpses of how good he can be and if he gets a good run in the team for a while I think he will be as good if not better than Dan .

    Jacob was at his best playing for Fiji in the World Cup.

    I have to say that I didn't think either of them would make it when they were playing under 20s because they were big units who made a lot of metres, but both were slow to move and had no agility in defence.
    They were different guys after their firstgrade off season when they were 19, and have both kept getting more mobile and agile in defence since.
    But anyway, I thought Jacob was most likely to make it because he was smaller and more agile - but still looking like he would just get bigger and slower and not be able to defend in firstgrade.

    Yeah I remember the game against australia his first few runs he was the only Fijian to make a dent in the australian pack it took a hand full of the best forwards in the world to bring him down. Unfortunately he injured himself and went off.

    Nice that we have 4 props that would make other teams 17 with Klem, Safiti's and Ese.

    When before Klemmer got here Dan was more or less shouldering the team!

    I see a prop for Cronulla, Toby Rudolf, who is 6 months older than Jacob and has played 2 firstgrade games off the bench has at least 2 clubs (Cronulla and the Warriors) trying to sign him.
    Big, young props have always been hard to find.
    I suspect Jacob would have offers from half the teams in the comp if he was interested in leaving.

    Maybe in the past but you have giant young props coming out of your ears these days. They are all massive now.

    Its a good position to be in when your starting props go off and you cant tell .
    Jacob and Glasby are doing a great job when Dan and Klem go off , I love watching the twins on the field together .
    Jacobs been showing how good he can be and if he stays healthy and in form anything could happen for him . I love the aggression the twins are playing with too, especially Dan.
    A couple of times shoving players in the face as they are getting up from the tackle , we didn't see that as much before .
    I like it .
    How is Glasby Going too and they work well together .

    Especially good when the starting props are origin players in outstanding form.

    Dragons after Jacob and no doubt Ese as well with tonnes of players off contract in 2021-2022 no doubt they'll be after everyone.
