Pezz, you, like all of us, have no f**king idea what will happen next game, never mind next year.We’re shot ducks, next year we’ll go close to the spoon. Gildart will have to be an absolute genius to avert it. I think we have a pack of forwards that may develop, but Tamou has to go his defence in the middle is ordinary, he is slow, was carried last couple of years. He got caught out badly by the bulldogs and the TV cameras. Utiokamanu has talent with ball in hand, but is too big, his profile says 115kg but I’m calling him for 120-125 no trouble at all, he needs drop 10-15kg, he is a defensive liability in the middle when the little blokes get the pill. The stats don’t show it because he didn’t get a hand near a couple of the fellas up the middle cause he is too slow getting back. There is nothing in our future that looks like it’s gonna bear fruit. We need a lock with a bit of mongrel that can play the full 80
TBH, I didn’t see Stephane’s missed tackles as I was too busy being thrilled at his attacking efforts. If he’s not our best forward who is? He is a kid, his potential is enormous.
Him, Blore, Seyfarth, Simpkin and Tuilagi are all kids, we have a great future in our forwards.
I certainly agree, we could use a mongrel forward, though I hope we look for a real good back first.
