Fair enough, no offence taken. Forums are meant to discuss varied opinions.
I just think guys his size struggle to make it to the top level. The game is full of 100kg robots these days.
the little guys you reference played in a completely different era where fatigue and small guys with footy smarts could succeed.
I see so much of it in junior footy, where small 7s and 1s have speed and talent then only to do a shoulder or get a few concussions from slightly poorly timed tackles.
It’s tough to make it to the top.
Good point JJ, I still have visions of the small Dolphins FB, I think Fuller is his name having blinders, but you are right maybe in this era their time is limited.

Few games on today:
o Jersey Flegg (1.20pm) - No Coverage
o NSW Cup (3.15pm) - Foxtel/KAYO Coverage
o First Grade (5.30pm) - Foxtel/KAYO Coverage

Flegg thoughts: They are missing LKT/Buchanan in Cup but so many replacements they should be fine, and they need to get used to players moving up anyway,

NSW Cup: Im more concerned with the 5 first grade outs.. means no Couchmans, Marschke, , Feagais, SFinau and up against the Panthers... upside will be tv coverage of LKT who I think is next most likely behind Williams to move quickly into Cup more permanently.. and Buchanan I think is next in line behind those 2.. its just his size/age.. so lets see how he handles cup today.. will be a great test. Hopefully MMolo and AlexTui stand up, but its an awful bench imo.. needed one of the props to move up.. Tonga or Stewart etc.
