    He seems less inclined to pass the ball recently than he was in his first 2 games. This has meant less handling errors, more of a hold at all cost attitude. I reckon this is under instruction from the coaching staff until he gets more used to FG.

    He's coming along just fine. The term 'semi' is also being less coined these days when it comes to Sivo references.

    I was watching the game again on Kayo. Then they mentioned Semi. Which prompted me to switch apps and watch a YouTube highlights package. FMD that try Sivo scored on the weekend was a normal week for our semi.

    He should visit us in his off season. He’d get a huge reception at Bankwest. He coulld raise that flag.

    Semi has been mentioned plenty of times this season, I just think the term is being used less often as the season progresses.

    Yes.
    Whilst Maiko is a diligent student, he needs to TRY harder. I'll take him under my wing and hopefully soon he will show everyone what he is truly capable of.

    You forgot to mention that he hasn't been suspended for inproper behaviour, yet.

    I don't know about all the stats, but Semi scored 12 tries in his first 8 games for us. In his first full season (2014), he scored 10 in the opening 8 rounds, that was a 4-4 start and we finished 10th.

    Similar builds. Semi is listed as 190cm and 100kg while Sivo is 186cm and 105kg (although who knows how accurate those stats are).

    Comparisons aside, Sivo is going great guns and will only get better.

    The reason I forgot might be because it hasn't happened yet? If and when it does, I'll probably keep it to myself.

    If true and on minimum wage plus match payments he’s one of the buys of season. Add on Fero, Paulo and Laney and our recruitment has been easily the best in the NRL’s.

    Paulo’s long minutes and ball playing has certainly shut the haters up. Many on here said he was a plodder.

    Stop coming up with brilliant ideas, thats my job.

    A nice little twist would be if he only raised it to half mast.

    Not many were upset to see Junior back, we probably did pay overs but he was exactly what we needed.

    Name a better prop after 8 rounds and what is that player on ? We are getting great value out of Jnr. Indeed I worry if he gets injured it would change the dynamic of our team considerably.
