    One thing I kind of picked up about A-Fi today, yes he was awesome again but I get the feeling he is starting to feel the pressure of being the solo dominant forward.
    He needs Gal back to take some pressure off.
    I am in no way having go at him, his presence has been immense

    His knee is pretty pharqued. It’s gonna tell on him sooner or later.

    If the others all return en masse in the next month I’d send him on a holiday after a game or two with the band back together

    Has to be managed carefully. He must be fit for the finals for us to have a shot at winning the comp.

    Congratulations to Andrew Fifita!

    Another 3 points in the Dally M’s

    He now goes to outright first on 16 Points.

    Ponga is on 15
    Brooks is on 13
    Maloney is on 13

    Then daylight.

    Wouldn’t it be awesome if he won the bloody thing.

    Points awarded in our game this weekend was;

    Fifita 3 Points
    Holmes 2 points
    Seggy 1 Point.

    Which was pretty much the popular choice of our 3,2 & 1.

    Watch how mature he has become.

    Not arguing with referees. Not trying to always milk penalties. Just being dominant and making the refs respect him.

    I’d leave him Captain with Wade this year. What a beast he is now.

    Yes, but our front-row stocks are a little thin. We have great back-rowers!

    Maybe we could do the unthinkable, and actually play Gal at Prop for 2 weeks!

    We would STILL have an awesome back row, with quality reserves...

    I cant recall him being penalised or having a handling error for incorrect play the ball this year. Makes a difference.

    Which should shut all the whingers on here up finally who are like housewives doing a final building inspection report "oh, Ithought that would be wider" kind of stuff. FMD, bagging a 120 kg guy playing 60 minutes running 200 metres & making 40 odd tackles & the whngers would come in here & say " oh, but his play the balls" FMD.
    FTR, his play the ball speed is still the fastest in the club by a country mile. Even yesterday.

    I love the fact that Flanno was sending messages down trying to get him not to carry the ball and just tackle towards the end haha. Guy is a beast.
