    Plenty of better players could up their involvement rate if they dropped to only 30-40min a game. Alvaro is a dependable guy that will probably make the bench. But he isn’t a walk up start on the bench for the whole season, no matter how many articles Pou writes about him.

    Evans is above him in pecking as is RCG and Jnr.
    If Kafusi or Terepo hit form Danny will be dropped.

    Thats a one dimensional view of what constitutes a good defender. A good defender can be a guy that makes a shit load of tackles at a high effectiveness rate or it can be an enforcer. Both have their role.

    85% of being a good defender is work rate and effectiveness

    I've said this 100 x There are players who are able to defend as good as Alvaro and also bend the line in attack. Yes they do both. Nikuore is a good example.
    Anyhows I would have Danny in my 17 to start season. But wont be suprised if he drops out if Kafusi or Stone fire.

    Alvaro’s effectiveness isn’t high.

    I’m not much of a betting man but this seems like a sure thing. I don’t know if I want to put you through that, mate.

    I also predict that @hindy111 will compare the Eels to the Panthers at some stage during the season.

    This one could come to pass during round 1.

    Was it higher in previous years? And if so, what percentage was it?

    I bet that he'll compare us to North Queensland.
