    Was a sensation for us this year. Has a bit to improve on until he can play first grade but he is close to it.

    The form he had in the finals of the NSW cup was good enough for firstgrade I reckon.
    When he came back from injury he was very reluctant to put his body on the line and risk injury again, but he got over that.
    He doesn't look it, but he must be incredibly strong. He breaks the first tackle just about every time. No one can hold him one on one.
    He should look at taking up wrestling.

    Great news. Funny, a certain twitter account said we weren't offering him a contract not so long ago!

    So glad we finally re-signed him. Was a gun this season. 17 tries in 16 games include 4 in the one game alone. Impressive strength for a small bloke too.

    Hope to see him shine again for the next two years and hopefully make first grade at some stage.

    In all seriousness Ross would be about our 6th choice fullback.

    That may be the case, but there's no denying how much of a weapon he is when fully fit and injury free.

    easily can be taught, no worries look at uate seemed to drop it all the time now teams target him and he has it covered most of the time, will be an awesome all-round player if he gets better under the high ball, nothing to worry about.

    Hopefully this deal gives him the opportunity to learn alot while training full-time. One of the most enthusiastic players I've seen with the ball in hand, one of the most unenthusiastic players I've seen without the ball in hand.

    Well if they gave him a crack in first grade we'd really see how good he is.

    Way to many in front of him to consider when he runs away from the highball.
