Laizou may just be flushed out of the system.
We have some good young backs in under 20s coming through I have been told. Probably the best of the lot are Yates, Hands,Greig,Russel,Rodwell....And of course Jake maybe. Haven't heard much about Morettis progress so I doubt he has set the world on fire.


Laizou hasn't impressed me at all not sure where the hype came from..

What’s the go with Cini not getting a run? Always seems to make great metres and line breaks in the lower grades. Does he have a glaring weakness that leads to him not get selected in first grade?

Didn't see the game, so is Russell ready for the NRL now, or do we go with Sivo ? Perham needs to go and Simonsson wasn't much better.

Is Laizou better off playing as an edge forward ?
Loizou is still young and Flegg eligible. He’s a skinny runner like Russell. He got injured yesterday and that forced a change where Solo came on and Russell played centre. He’s not a forward unless he stacks on the kegs.

Sivo didn’t go looking for work and looked gassed after doing not a lot.

Zac Cini on the other hand looks for work and is big and tough as nails. He’s been playing centre of late and he’s pretty good at it. I just haven’t seen enough of him to say that his positional reads in D is good enough for NRL. I hope we have him locked up because someone will pinch him if we are not careful. He’s improved a lot under BA/Carr & Co.

Solo deserves to be mentioned as NRL winger. I’m pretty sure he was next up after Russell, but has been out with a hammy from like Rnd 2. He does tough carries and often folds merkins in half.

The latest TCT pod says that Kye Rodwell has received a multi-week suspension which spoiled his call up to NRL. Apparently we engaged NRL experienced lawyers to challenge it and lost

That's a decent reggies backline, now we've got some starters comingback into the first grade backs.

Have Canberra only named 15 players? No #5 and no #17...
