    Even at $100 grand ? I believe it would be money quite wisely spent.

    Ivan's given him an early mark with 2 and 3 to go in the last 2 games. In the Warriors game, he went off with 13 to go and came back with under 5 to go, but still played 77 because of golden point.

    McKendry actually isn’t even in our top 30 right now, his main contract finished last year. He must be on small match payments for reserve grade.

    A final prop position might come down to him or Grant.

    It’d be the biggest form reversal since Adam was playing fullback for Jerusalem.

    Suspect this is just Gus justifying the bad deal he gave RCG.

    RCG should be in his prime right now. When Tamou was his age, and close to the best prop in the game, he was running for 140-150m per game.

    RCG’s best ever season was 130m, now he’s settled back at 100m

    Yep. He selflessly gave up his top 30 spot which is why I've got his pic in honour of his sacrifice.

    That comment was made about Fish, not RCG.

    Do you realise that this weeks team has only four players that didnt make their first grade debut with Penrith?, and that is out of the 21 not the 17!
    Only Whare, Maloney, Tamou an Winterstein debuted elsewhere. That must be some sort of record!

    I’d let Mansour go and go after radradra. Sauce - 1 try this season isn’t very good for a winger. Yes he does do some yards out of own end. Him and naden aren’t on the same page when naden’s got the ball (pass goes into touch or to ground).
    Also go after peach.

    I mean I can't really bring up stats like tries scored or anything for him in 2017 so this is just a pointless conversion from now. You won't change your mind and I believe you have recency bias.
    But yes I agree on current form he's overpaid (though he's improved since the start of the year so it isn't by nearly as much). But look at JWH 2/3 years ago. He was similarly vastly overpaid for two years. Then hit from around the right time and won his team the comp.
    Tamou also had the benefit of taking his runs after Matt Scott who was the best prop in the game and regularly got quick ptbs.

    Maybe, but there’s plenty of other examples

    from this year

    Klemmer - 170m

    Tapau - 140m

    Taukeiaho - 150m

    Haas - 166m

    Wallace - 150m


    Then there’s a stack of guys running 110-140m

    RCG is way down around 30th prop for most run meters.

    He’s a freak, but I was only looking at props.
