    How conflicted are you gonna be when he scores a try with the last play of the game to beat Roosters in the Grand Final

    I just realised what you meant.

    Albert or Adam?

    Reminds me of the old cult movie "Glen or Glenda?".

    One of the few times I readily agree with you. Champion is a bit strong a word for a bloke at the start of his career but there’s no doubt; the boy can play. Hughes needs to play out of his skin every week to keep him out of the #1 jersey. Nice position for Bellamy to be in.

    The fact that they let another very talented fullback go to us means. The clubs doing something right

    Melbourne has always had a quality Fullback, right back to the start with Robbie Ross. Robbie taught Slater the finer points of the position and now Slater has passed the baton to those blokes, Drinkwater included.

    Billy Slater may be coaching Ryan Papenhuyzen, knowing that the Dutch star could be the exciting future full back of the Melbourne Storm.

    Hasn't Slater got some sort of training gig at St Killedya?

    He's on the coaching/training staff at both St Kilda and the Storm

    Billy Slater's coaching can help make Ryan Papenhuyzen as great as Billy was.

    Ryan Papenhuyzen still has a long way to go to reach the heights that Billy did, but I agree with Albert. The guy is destined to be a modern day superstar.

    I am looking forward to your regular postings. You seem to know your football.

    Thank you Stephen, I’ve spent a considerable amount of time in Europe with a broad journalistic background.

    I can spot talent when I see it.

    The four latest posts are vomit inducing.

    Clear evidence of triple self analingus.

    It will be a real test for Ryan Papenhuyzen this weekend against the Serbian Powerhouse duo. Tom is obviously a lot taller then Ryan so he’ll have his work cut out. It’s going to be great watching future international superstars go at it with one another.

    The 'Dominant Dutchman' Ryan Papenhuyzen had yet another great game last night.

    Scored 1 try and almost scored another.

    I think Croft should be the one looking over his shoulder.
    Hughes kills it every time he plays in the halves.

    Not sure how Croft has managed to keep his position. It’s only a matter of time in my opinion unless he improves a lot.

    Yeah nah, diminutive is the adjective you’re looking for.

    Unfortunately Ryan “The Dutch Flyer” Papenhuyzen didn’t get any game time on the weekend. He will come back & show us all that he’s still the superstar we know he is.
