    Also our bad defensive issues over the past had a lot to do with bigger packs running as down. It was men vs boys, now with Klemmer and throw in Glasby, Guerra, Gavet, Barnet and now more exp under the belt for Fitz and Saifiti's we should improve defence and hold are own yard.

    Its a great feeling hey , Gardner and Wests certainly know how to run a business that's for sure . I think we did well we seem to have bought better players than the one's we missed out on .

    It has to be better having a good defensive coach rather than Potter .

    Let's see how he goes. Did Potter bring anything to the club here that we can see though? Didn't see any backs flourish at all under him.

    Maybe that's why he isn't here anymore .

    Ponga and Meaney both seemed to have fullback skills after training under Potter.
    Potter was supposed to train all the backs, but I think teaching fullbacks to position themselves well and how to safely catch high balls was what he did best.

    I'm sure Ponga had fullback skills well before Potter got near him.

    Ever go out on the drink with a couple of Mates that can't fight? Not much fun when push comes to shove. Next week you go out with Bock Lesnar. All of a sudden you're 6 foot tall and bulletproof.

    I'd even be happy for Butterfield to start alongside Chief and bring Sarge on later, but that's just me

    You hit the town with Lesnar there's gonna be a fight for sure, everyone likes their chances against the big guy. The entourage unfortunately becomes cannon fodder

    I see they have put up Klemm's profile on the Knight's site, and listed his position as "lock". Either the IT guy knows something we don't, or knows nothing.

    He was listed as lock on the Dogs page until removed, so that info might just have been imported over. Agree though that he won’t be in the 13.

    Not sure how true it was but there were reports he didn't like playing No.13 when he was at the Dogs and wanted the No.10 jersey

    I don't know if you ever saw Sarge play but he was a hell of a lot better than Butts ever was .

    He can wear whatever number on his back makes him happy.

    Yes, true. Legend, our first international. Butts was good, but not on Sarge level.
