Be surprised if Sivo doesn't get rookie of the year
I reckon it will be between him and Nikora from the Sharks
Payne Haas i'd imagine
Sportsbet had Maika Mess Of You at $2.50, second favourite behind someone at $2. Nikora I guess.
I'll throw a few names up there.
I would give it to D.Brown as he is playing in the hardest position to master and is 18.
Fair enough. 18 is the age of consent.
The most pleasing aspect of picking our best buy of the season is we have so many to choose from. All of our major buys have been excelled and is the reason our team is going so well. It has been a long time since we can say that and why we have so many differing opinions and all with equal merit.
For mine value for money and being the leading try scorer virtually all year, meaning consistency not just hot streak, has to go to Sivo. Also from the time Fergo started getting injured, he has slowly stepped up a notch or two. That to me has been the most pleasing aspect of his development. He didn't drop off without Fergo constantly encouraging him as we saw in the games they play together.
The boy is fearless and a power house with an awesome fend that he is just now starting to use. I also loved how his dad came to watch him play and he didn't know anything about it till after the game. Beautiful stuff. Does anyone know, did our club organise it to surprise him or was it something his dad did on his own volition?
Club arranged it and dad surprised him at training Saturday morning.
And then surprised him again at the game. He couldn't believe who he found at his place when he got home.
At the game it was announced that the trip over was sponsored by VB.
We can't have it included on the salary cap like the NRL did with Semi!
You can get it massacring a guy called Blake
You can get it drinking kava by a lake
You can get it any old how
I've also enjoyed watching the evolution of Sivo's defence - he has improved such in thksbatea.
It definitely helps to have Michael Jennings defending at centre.
Did it happen to Semi too? I have a vague recollection of Fui fui’s Son being flown over and we were forced to count that on the cap
You are correct. It was Fui and not Semi
Did we count the $35 ticket to game under the salary cap?
It was already counted because Max took it out of his pay.
Bang for buck, it’s sivo hands down!
This has nothing to do with bang for buck.
Sivo has been excellent but has he been better then Blake? I feel behind the scenes no.
I still feel like our most expensive signing is the biggest difference maker in our performances this year.
Performance wise game day I’d say sivo and fergo have been on par with each other. Fergo pips him off field.
