    Absolutely sensational player. If he handles the rise, he will be better than Tedesco. I've never in my life seen any fullback that gifted. He has the World in his hands. Do a bit extra work at training and put in all the hard yards would be my advice to him.Extra work pays off on the field.

    Steve Marsters looks alright in the 9's

    I hope he handles the step up. If he does, our problems have been solved.

    I agree Marsters played strongly against Tonga and should prove solid backup for 2020

    Looking at our backs for 2020 I would be very surprised if Dane Gagai isnt released

    Unless Bennett wants to use Doueihi in the utility bench role (which I think will actually be filled by Lowe/Sironen/Johns) there really is no place for Gagai in first grade and no point in having him at $700K in reserves with a full roster plus Paulo there. We need forwards and the cap space would get us a cheapie back-up centre and a solid forward

    Could end up like that. I'd certainly give Gebbie a crack at FB. I think that's why Bennett asked for him.

    We'll learn in the next few weeks how true the French rugby rumours were.

    Has some potential in the 1 and 2 position but honestly didnt look that amazing against an average USA team in a format where space was easy to come by. Looking at his body shape and speed though I dont think FB is his spot, he could be our Sivo with a proper pre-season

    Go on to the rabbitohs app and look for Bennett's speech on this year. Fast forward it and you will find Gebbies games at fullback in Queensland and for PNG.

    Better than Tedesco? I have heard it all now. Let him see play some a first grade game first. He has been purchased to replace Hiroti.
    How long before the Alex Johnson rumours start up again about him wanting out to play fullback? It feels like it happens every offseason :/

    Im not saying better than Teddy now. If he can handle first grade, he could be better.

    Are they rumours? I recall Bennett answering questions about it.

    And I don't remember Tedesco tearing up the turf and carving teams up like this bloke did in lower grades. In fact, comparing the early days of the two, who looks better?

    I'd have to lean towards Tedesco considering he was an Origin rep at 24.

    I agree. That's not what I'm saying anyway. Crowe misunderstood what I said. I was saying if this bloke carries his Queensland cup form into first grade, he could end up better than Tedesco. If you watch his performances on the rabbitohs app, you will see form that Tedesco never showed in the juniors or at West's Tigers. But he did take his game up a notch at the Roosters. Gebbie hasn't had the chance yet. But from what I've seen in corresponding early games from both players, Gebbie looks better.

    There are some good players in right column, that I wouldn't be at all surprised if they were transferred over to the left. And I'm of the belief there are some more coming to join our squad soon and in a year's time.

    When he first started. And he played centre in early rep games like city v country.

    John Sutton filling in for a dozen games at centre while he's still a teenager is a bit different.

    I'd say as second rowers their the complete opposite in style. Matterson would be the ideal Sutton replacement.

    Matterson is only interested in money and for me, you cannot be loyal to a club if money is your first choice. Wests gave him a big rise in pay and he's really done nothing to deserve another pay rise. Some people might disagree and that's fine. All I ask is for them to explain to me exactly what it is he's done to deserve more money.
