Re Elliott. Great proven tactician and analyser, but not a proven winner.Sounds like there has been big changes in training in the off season and the players are felling it thanks to the new coaches. Lets hope it shows when the season starts. I am more excited with Elliot as part of the coaching team than Hook to be honest. Always thought he was a great coach.
The biggest change that needed to happen for me was the weekly team selections. Hopefully no more cut and paste jobs and players playing poorly will start getting dropped regardless of how much NRL experience they have.
Yes and No..(disappointing use of him as many others in our side) but has to find some intimidation IMO and has been catapulted into rep and some media stardom before his done decent time at NRL which happens a lot these days.I reserve my judgment of him, in my opinion he has been disappointing.
I think Alvaro is a real good pick up and will help instil some mongrel and hardness into our forwards.Only thing I dont like about kerr and most of the forwards there no fear factor.It helps a lot when opposition start having a think.
Hey Old Timer completely agree - did not and never had a wrap on GrahamI think Alvaro is a real good pick up and will help instil some mongrel and hardness into our forwards.
I think we have a lot of "followers" and they just need someone to lead them.
Graham was supposed to provide it but was seriously lacking so maybe just maybe this time we got the right bloke to harden us up a bit.
Funny as much as I see limitations in Lawrie he is one that does bust his arse and heave a real dig including the dirty hit up so he might grow a leg as well.
Hopefully Alvaro is our "influencer" as is Hook.
You got remember McGregor wouldn't let any forward pass the ball and Graham main asset he was a ball playing forward..Hope that has change this year. .
