    Im with ya Gronk. Always hopeful. Fingers crossed we can score 25 or more. Hate playing Newcastle. Is it "Old Boys Day" again for them?

    I remember thinking it was Parra Old Boy's day ever week in Kearney's first year as coach with the likes of Whatuira, Webb, Hicks, Walker and Casey Maguire running around for us every week!!!

    Yeah, but that was with Will Smith in the team.
    Without him we surely get exposed like a Portuguese chicken in defence.

    We should beat the Knights.
    Worse team in comp and no Ponga. If cant we should march BA out of club.

    Not counting trials, when was the last time we beat them up there?

    2016, Foran’s last game for us.

    We fell in, it was a terrible game.

    I seem to recall Bevan French holding the Ross Dog up and preventing him from scoring what would have been the match winning try... Pretty sure it was French's top grade debut...

    Does the stairway to Beven French have a future at Parra. I'm thinking he is to slight and we carry him somewhat.

    The ladder suggests we are the worst team in the comp

    Agree, he doesn’t camembert to the good fullbacks of late.

    Imo, yes - he's a fullback, and (WARNING: controversial opinion coming up) I believe he is our best fullback option.

    5 tries
    2 try assists
    725 run metres
    13 tackle breaks
    3 line breaks

    = bog average

    Michael Gordon

    4 tries
    4 try assists
    1616 run metres
    37 tackle breaks
    8 line breaks

    And Flash is just used as a stop gap FB until a better one comes along.

    I wont embarrass Bev by putting up any of the stats of the top fullbacks.

    Feel free to check them out but

    Been more games theyve had their asses wiped.

    I reckon of the teams outside the top 8 we are in the best 2 or 3. Especialy moving forward.
    Dogs,Manly seem a shambles. Tigers signing guys for sake of it.
    Titams look to be building smartly.
    Raiders perhaps if where going to do anything was this year.
    Knights might be on rise but bar Ponga there isnt othing great.
    Cowboys will struggle for a few years

    Meh.

    He keeps being flipped from wing, to fullback, to wing, then getting injured.

    Imo, he's quality.
