    It goes without saying that we now have a LEGITIMATE front tow enforcer in Paul Vaughan..

    The guy is a metre eater and in turn inspires Packer, Ah Mau and Simms to follow suit. His defence is also just as ferocious as his running style.

    There's no forward pack I fear anymore - and I'm sure our forward pack led by Vaughan are of the same thinking - their confidence and self belief must be sky high..

    Ben Hunt would be licking his lips playing behind this pack..

    Why didn't Ricky Stuart like him?

    Who knows but looking at the Raiders pack last year it was a very big pack

    What a great buy Vaughan is. If he keeps fit and injury free he will help us win many more games this year.

    Too me that's what it seems, that's why I asked, anyway thanks to the Raiders we have got some special players from them.

    Hey guys, Raiders fan here.

    I have no knowledge of what happened with Vaughn that led to him falling out of favour with the club, but I can say that it wasn't lack of ability. The bloke can be an absolute gun on his day, big, strong with great mobility for his size.

    I hope he and the other ex-Raiders that you have in your squad go well.

    Except for Dugan. Screw that guy.

    The forwards are feeding off each other, running hard and hitting just as hard, got the vibe in the trials after watching Vaughn, JDB, Packer etc and they've carried it into round 1...keep going boys

    The Panthers were surprised with vigorous and crushing defence our forwards dished out.

    Those runs from Vaughan coming from the back fence were awesome.

    The sound of his collisions when he hit the defensive line a few times was breathtaking.

    Think I've got a new man crush :blush:

    Young Kerr from reserve grade should be the next young prop blooded for first grade. He shows signs of being very damaging up front..

    I might be biased, but Paul Vaughan is odds on the early favourite for buy of the season. Adds that extra size and extra aggression we have needed in the pack. What a great pack we have this year. They completely man handled the much more fancied pack of the Panthers. Interesting stat: 11 of our starting 13 made more than 100 metres and just 3 of the Panthers did the same.

    Toss up between him, Jay Gallagher and Hame Sele. All very good young options.

    Im so happy that we are all excited about our pack - no matter what happens from here we know what they are capable of on their day and if they don't perform to their optimum well it has to be put down to a coaching thing...Yesterday they showed us as a collective the machine they can be...no more wondering - we know what they can dish up...and it was breathtaking!

    I said the same in sack Mary thread, we can go deep into the semis with a good coach, the ball is in Marys court whether he survives this year.
    Premiers 2018!

    Yes and when in attack our blokes had plenty of leg drive......not one of our forwards when tackled just gave in..they just kept the legs pumping..about time to I might add

    This guy is a damaging prop, hungry for FG game time and success

    This is a top buy, full marks to recruitment, and worth whatever they are paying him.

    He put in a great effort on the weekend. Definitely part of the improved performance.
