    Would he be in the top 17??? and if so, whose place does he take..He was behind Peni and a few others when his ship sailed..Handy, but hadn't played first grade NRL...

    It will improve. Long gone from our Eels but I reckon he's got a few tools that are advantageous. I think BA could have turned this kid into a beast but we have Mr Emu now who will fill that role. This kid excites me very much where as, from what I've seen so far, which admittedly isn't a great deal, Mr Hollis and the unnamed other top 30 prop havent. Early days though.

    Yeah, we probably lost a solid first grader, but it's not going to hurt us, and thats the key thing with retention. Stefano will be the same. Hollis likely won't be anywhere near first grade this year I would say. Its taken Oregan three years to get where he is.

    You make way too much sense for this forum SL. You sure Chess or Bridge aren't your real passion?

    I'm surprised he wasn't rated, given how many games he'd played by such a young age.

    What a great story, I am so happy for him and his family. I hope he ends up a Parra legend by the time it is all over. He seems like such a great man and family man at that. Has quickly become one of my favs.

    Go Paps!!!

    I agree. He's relegated The Lane Train to my second favourite. Let's go Ice.

    Like most of us, you can post some rubbish, this takes the cake. Maybe you should delete it given it’s implication, even if it’s supposed to be funny (which it isn’t)

    Stop trying to limit freedom of speech. This is cancel culture at its finest. Please stop with this lefty diatribe.

    I rated him very highly ... although i only noticed him in 5 minutes of one game when they beat the broncos last year and he barrelled his way over for the match winning try .... but i will still claim i thought he was gonna be awesome
