    Both the Saifitis have had amazing spells off the bench, coming on fresh against tired forwards.
    Some guys play their best against the strongest possible opposition, and some guys are, in cricket terms, slow track bullies, who thrive when they can dominate.
    The best Jake Saifiti ever played was in the world cup, when he came off the bench against softened up packs and smashed out a lot of easy metres.

    The twins coming off the bench at some stage could be epic in tandem.

    Had a chuckle overnight if Dan was at another club and was on the market most on here would be barking the famous "His exactly what we need" but because his already here his considered a bit of a numpty, yet some bloke who's had 1 consistant year in first grade and been a journeyman prior without Dans numbers and I'll debate impact has leaped him?

    Gavet is the pefect bench prop.
    Will come on with energy and aggressive runs to keep the good work laid by someome like Klemmer.

    Ese is a gun, was our most effective prop last year so deserves the starting spot.

    Size wise makes sense to have Dan rotating with Klemmer and ese with Gavet.
    Gavet will bring the aggression that klemmer has while Dan will bring the meters and size.

    How long have we been wanting no flat spots in our middle rotation?
    Seems pretty logical for that rotation i mentioned as a way to keep it pretty even across the 80 minutes.

    Because Gavet is starting doesn’t mean Dan has been ‘leaped’ at all. Every year Dan has had a slow start to the year and Brown is obviously trying to instill a bit of confidence and hunger in the fella.

    According to Toohey, Gavet is looking like he'll start, so that's why everyone is putting him ahead of Dan & Ese. Everyone was benching him before that so I don't think it's a case of people rating him over the others.

    If he puts out similar numbers to last year though he'll be a good little get, but as has been mentioned, I reckon he'll start those early minutes before Dan & Ese come on for long minutes.

    I think we're keen on Gavet because he's a chance of smashing someone.

    Nice, that pack would tear holes through the opposition defence. Don't know how long they could keep up the intensity, maybe if they played 15 minute halves :lol:

    Jacob Saifiti played all his juniors and first year of reserve grade as an 80 minute second rower.
    In fact, one of the finals games we played on the way to the title in reserve grade, one of the centre got an early injury, and Jacob came off the bench to play 70 minutes or so at centre, and we won the game so he must have gone OK.
    Fitz was the opposite - he played most of his juniors as a fairly ordinary prop, and even played prop in his first few games of firstgrade.

    Played pretty much his whole entire first season as a backrower before Brown moved him at the end. Both Saifiti boys started in the front row for our last game that year.

    Toohey's news today - Ross may need another groin operation and may look at medical retirement if the specialist says it can't be fixed.
    Chris Randall may be the biggest improver of the off season and had a good game at 5/8 for reserve grade.
    Moga only 4 or 5 touches and 4 or 5 tackles in 30 minutes - will need another run in reserves.

    Other the swapping Ponga and Watson I can’t see the 1-6 changing anytime soon.

    Hymel Hunt didn’t really doesn’t really deserve to lose his spot either
