Most of this would be a few yrs old


Great post @hindy111
dont want to put too much expectations on the kid but there is a bit of Kalyn ponga about him...the running style, pace and swerve...I think he's next man up if a winger spot becomes available...nrl exemption/dispensation pending with some ridiculous rules they have in place...he's one definitely worth watching

This photo has Lumelume shorter than Harper. Harper is listed as 180cm, Lumelume at 187cm


This photo has Lumelume and Martin roughly the same height.

He's not what you'd call tall. But the best winger in the comp currently is 172cm tall.
Harper is at least 6’2”.

Thanks but i gotta see more against better opposition. He seems to have speed, footwork and balance but it's rugby and the defense isn't very tight and i cant tell the quality of the opposition

It just gives an idea of his size and speed. You can't coach either. Do you think he looks small?

Not small but not big. Speed is good but he's running into alot of space. He's not pappenhauzen or Billy acceleration. I think also in nrl, u need a good fend which i didnt really see.

Our style doesn't give the outside men much space. Actually, they get cramped.

When Hayne was here, the wingers and centres got space but not so much anymore as we rely on power

A little help guys (I'm confused):

A few pages back there was talk about whether a player was a Parra junior or a Tigers.

I assumed the West's Tigers was part of our development pathway? No?

So Nathan Brown (the angry one) made the Manly top 30, ready for Las Vegas ?

I was there in the second last round at CommBank and I am pretty sure he got binned maybe twice AND then sent off. OK I might be sketchy on the details, but I remember thinking, dude, wherever you are next year you won’t be playing in the early rounds. Does anyone recall better than me ? Of course NSWRL never release their judiciary stuff, so there’s that.

I said it before, I'll say it again. Broncos wooden spoon. Massive dickheads all in one team, and a coach they don't respect means disaster
They won't win the spoon again.

Broncos will always have culture problems as its such a big club and without ever living in Brisbane i reckon the players are treated like rockstars in the media up there with it only just being a two team town. They also genuinely get the best talent & there ego's get way out of control very quickly by being pampered compared to Sydney media which is a bit more ruthless to the actual clubs .

Social media these days doesn't allow the broncs to cover up these incidents like they probably did in the 90s also.

Nothing to see there. However if Eels players they'd cop suspensions.
Precedent from last year is they should get a match minimum.

Payne Haas got 1 match ban for a dustup with Albert Kelly in the Hotel.

I reckon the fact Carrigan was reported to be heavily intoxicated will guarantee a suspension for bringing the game into disrupte.

Looks like those Brave Roosters will be the benefactors though.

Looking forward to Kenty and the Beetroot ripping into their high alcohol consumption so close to the start of the season.

Well they would if it was us. #culture

Funnily enough I saw Kenty at the Oaks, Neutral Bay on Friday Night on the piss close to midnight. Dressed like he was at a funeral black collared shirt & pants stood out with his greyish hair.

Gee whiz though he had some leeches hanging onto him at the bar. There was a female i reckon half his age by his side the whole time in the sports bar. Not sure if it was a Girlfriend or not.

I assume it wasnt the same one he had go to court for.
