Nice highlights package of Cody in Flegg this year.
Very quick off the mark ...... Na to quick anybody that is faster than our current backs is no good......
Don't worry , he will get a fair go to succeed because we have this thing called a "Pathways program "
He looks good......pity that is the death knell for him.
Look forward to see him killing it in another club's jersey.
We have James Schiller coming. It will create competition
Thanks for that George Cody has played well this year.
Hopefully he will make it
Think he will definitely make it only question is which club
Isn’t it great to see a young Dragon doing so well ! He certainly has just about everything that a fullback requires - speed - good under the high ball - and also a neat 2step that puts opposition defensives completely out of sync . Oh and bag loads of confidence, as many before me have already mentioned , I wonder just which club will use this kid ?
Just hope the club cleans up the coaching side of things so the fans get the chance to se him develop in the Big Red V.
Won't make it, passes the ball too often, catches bombs, too young for our geriatric pathway & has a mullet. LOL
Get out while you have a chance Son, before our pathway peanuts ruin your career & un-skill all your talents.
Similar frame to a young Dugan
He can play and fast and elusive. There is so much talent coming thru the lower grade just hope they grow into big bodies. Can we get Willie Talau to bring that attack to NRL. Maybe a good coach for the future.
Cody has already been lined up to train with the top 30, I expect him and the twins to get DP contracts.
If he made a break none of our backs would keep up with him, so unfortunately, he has to go.
How about size, is he tall? Does he have good defensive skills.
Dufty has another season on his contract but would be likely to ask for a release if he is selected in reserve grade for 2020. I hear that Dufty, Field, Nichols and Maranta will be leaving at seasons end. So to reserve grade and let's see how he goes.
Hunt / Renolds
I think that was a good comparison.
At the Manly game at Brookvale oval this year, we nicknamed him 'Jesus'. Then after, Brian Johnston came to us on the hill and told us about him. He has black boots too!
Cody looks like a very good prospect. He is very quick. Has very good footwork. Looks to have good upper body strength. He is rangy and has a long stride. He will probably develop physically over the next few years too. I even saw a bit of Slater in him. Hopefully he can continue to develop his game and become a regular first grader in the not to distant future.
He could become a bit of a cult hero with is speed and long hair.
