Watching the Sunday Footy Show, Slater just said that Ryan Papenhuyzen is 80kgs.

Hang your head in shame Bev. Get an angry face :rage: and get involved.

I’ve never really bought the “he’s too small” stuff. Slater himself wasn’t big, nor was Ben Barba.

Could possibly go down as the most over hyped junior in the clubs history, although he has some fierce competition for that prize.

2016 says hi. I’d say not overhyped as his 2016 season was amazing. 19 tries in 13 games. Not sure if teams worked him out or he’s got the yips or combination of both, but something is stopping him in his tracks.

French only has 2 options stick around and hope that the club get coaches that can help improve his game or go to a Club like the Storm or Roosters where he will improve. If he leaves just for a first grade Spot at Tigers or another crap club he will fizzle out and be playing RMC in not to long...

That's a massive straw your clutching at if you're pulling up stats from 3 years ago. He's spent most of the time since in reserve grade.

Give yourself an upper cut.

He played 11 of those games on the wing. He has been pretty average at fullback since and terrible on the wing once opposition teams worked him out.

He's clutching 19 straws (from 13 games).

...and by straws, I mean tries.

19 tries in 13 games illustrates that the hype was legit at the time.

Would you have said he was overhyped after that season? No f**king way.

Any decline thereafter, isn't a case of him failing to live up to the hype as he had already done that in his first season.

Face it Chippy, it was a stupid statement. Give yourself a dozen.
