    How can he not be a 1st grade prop when he led the metres gained for the props last year. And you want to replace him with Blacker who wouldn't know what 1st grade looked like. You're kidding

    Exactly, he might not pass the eye test for the uninformed fan but stats don’t lie.

    Just on Lawrie. He is only 23 and had to shoulder the burden of basically #1 prop for us this year.
    Josh Kerr is older as is our newest recruit in Faamausili.

    Yes, he needs to add some variation to his game, but that was never going to happen under Mc85. We'll see if Hook can do this.

    Isn't it also the arguement that props dont develop fully untill their later 20's?

    It is easy to forget he is 23.

    You can add Jackson Shereb to that.
    A handy looking backrower.

    Spot on FCD- the height, swerve, deceptive speed and effortless glide of the Peach. The only question is what is his best position? IMO, he looks like a full-back.

    I've been critical of Lawrie in the past but I thought he improved out of site this year especially in the second half of 2020 after Graham deserted, he really stood up. He can only get better under a real coach you'd think. He's only 24 so his best years are yet to come. Plus he loves giving it to the Broncos forwards, plays his best against them.

    Of course he did the most metres as he was Gallen like in demanding the ball.Now his POST contact metre stats would be interesting !

    I like the style of the new young guys coming through - Sloan, Ramsay, Matt Feagai, Sullivan. Haven't seen much of Schiller, Amone or Max Feagai but I presume they will be the same.

    This is a great bunch all coming through together that seem to all get along and could take us far in the years ahead!

    Well I hope these young guns all continue to improve and remain patient while waiting for their chance to shine. We can keep them all if they are flexible in their aspirations. It goes without saying that Griffin and his staff will need to lock them up as soon as they are confident they have what it takes to be a good NRL player.
