    Is Kevin the same player from last year.Bigger,stronger,faster,great hands,brilliant.Watch him shine now he has big brother moving on.Him and Gagai should be priority as long term players.Think Jimmy might find it hard to get back in the side.

    Yeah he's been fantastic in the NSW Cup this year. Always been a speedster but he's bulked up alot and is alot more powerful and confident. Ive seen him play fullback a few times and the skills this guy has is amazing, definitely gotta re-sign him asap!

    Whoops, you're right! Even better!
    Funnily enough now Buzz has closed his Twitter account because of a nasty rumour about a Sharks player that he or his paper do not want to reveal.

    Just watched the replay. When Costigan holds his place next week you won't hear boo from me. Apart from a forward pass he was very good. Funny how Edwards rates a mention in MOM discussions yet I thought Costigan was every bit as good. Cuthbertson surely put to bed any thoughts that he shouldn't be in the side. Looked to hurt a shoulder in a clash with the man mountain Hurrell. Hopefully he'll be ok for next week.

    I thought he was decent, with the exception of the forward pass, he ran hard all night.

    i thought costigan was solid,

    i thought Uate did extremely well under the high ball, which is an area he has faltered with in the past. he has obviously done some
    work on that part of his game. Well done!

    I've been championing this from the beginning. Needs to be resigned asap.

    I don't think he will keep Jimmy out of the side but he will come close. Imagine having him as a replacement for any spot 1 - 5 in the backline. Very exciting player

    Kev is the perfect backup at the moment because he's had some pretty big holes in his game for a while, which means he's cheap, but looks to be sorting them out, so we may have a real bargain.

    If we're going to be a contender it will be with quality backup players in the 25 on 100k, and not 200k+

    Are we going better without snowden? Seems the uptempo fast football is working in our favour rather then the big slow grinding hit ups

    Finally got to watch it today...I don't think Uate knocked the ball on when he grounded it..though he got a finger too it before it hit the ground

    But anyway glad to get the 2 points. Don't think anyone had a bad game and Tyrone + Darius are getting better and better every week

    I don't think it was a game plan to be slow if that's what you were trying to say, finally they're all just having a dig and picking up the pace. Snowden will thrive off this confidence if we keep playing like we are when he returns, I cant wait to see him back.

    Yep, it's a confidence thing. Another few weeks of playing like this & you could throw anyone in & they'll look decent.

    I thought they had changed the rules and that's why they awarded no try. But if not that was a try for your life. Pretty poor decision IMO by the video refs not to notice the grounding.
    Glad it didn't cost us though.
