    I saw that and thought Gus was trying not to be Panthers centric. I could be wrong.

    Hay Magpies have two Fijians imported for the 2019 season as well as three boys from PNG...I LOVE the Fijian race of people. They are friendly, caring, humble, polite and outstanding citizens. I had the pleasure of meeting Suliasi Vunivale in Melbourne earlier this month. What a credit he is to his homeland and the Melbourne Storm..And boy can't he play too......
    Mate I was just having a dig at you...It would be fantastic to play an away game in FIJI

    He keeps improving, he already offers more than Gennings IMO.

    He will only continue to improve.

    Not taller, and we don't know if he is stronger or faster either, not to mention some of the freakish skills Semi would display from time to time.

    But Sivo seems okay so far.

    If he’s only going OK, do you think that we would be better off giving George Jennings a go or maybe the lanky Ethan Parry ?

    No, Of course not. So far he deserves his place in the team, but he is far from a cert at this stage of holding onto it.

    He has a long way to go, but I like what I see so far, but there are moments during games that I feel he is unsure of himself, which of course is to be expected at this stage of his development.

    Lets hope we keep playing well, so he has a comfortable and successful transition into NRL first grade football and we don't scar him and his development with crappy performances like last year. If we regress then who knows where and how the kid will turn out.

    But he seems like a good one.

    I like Sivo but wingers are getting bigger and I think in a couple of years the evolution of the wing position will mean he is too small, we need to be looking for a bigger version of him for 2021. I think the NRL needs to start recruiting wingers from the NBA.

    I think so.

    Not a lot of people know this, but Davey was raised by a group of wild dingoes and didn’t learn how to speak until he was 15.

    He got his break when he was rummaging through the bins at a football match at Mackay stadium and in a freak accident 4 of the cutter players contracted the Ebola virus at half time.

    The coach was desperate and promised to give Davey a mars bar if he played in the second half.

    Well, it turned out to be a masterstroke because Davey scored 4 tries, kicked 10 goal and ran for 200m in the second half. He got his mars bar and then promptly went on the become the future immortal that he now is.

    That's quite a story. Three cheers for Angus Whatshiname.
