So he does get dominated then?
Yes, driven back in tackles but technically that alone is not exactly domination.
Do they also throw him off his game to a point where he can't play at his best?
Some people just underestimate the power of having a well run club.
That site is cancer. Just like the article ‘source’ in Rothfield.
Yeah and how did that go?

How does mead get in the team? Personally i think Pearson is a better playing with more upside.
I see neither Mead nor Pearson making the fulltime side outside of injuries or rep season especially with a player like Issako hitting the scene. Mead hasn't impressed since joining the club and Pearson has struggled to kick on since his debut and did himself no favors in his last first grade appearance. That is assuming Oates is even moved from the wing which I doubt.
Neither will feature much next year and I still think Mead will look for a better opportunity elsewhere despite being contracted. Pearson clearly isn't of first grade quality and will end up being just another winger who fades away.
Is Oates moving into second row next year or something? Can't understand why they wouldn't use him on the wing, he gets our sets started perfectly.
Speculation at most Taylor1921, if he will be moved into a forward role it would be when Thaiday has retired after 2018 IMO. At present there really isn't a strong enough argument to move him away from the wing.
The year he was on the bench, and he started at #11 through origin period. He was awesome. His career is in the second row. It's just what is good for the team next season.
In a few years I can see it happening, at present though, the need for him to remain on the wing(Mead and Pearson aren't upto standard week in and week out) outweighs the need for him to be in the forwards.
We should offer this guy a contract.
He's so good he broke the video.
Recon Oates is playing SR, lookin huge.
More training pics on the site
I reckon Oates is staying on the wing ... we have plenty of capable backrow options .... can't say the same about wing
If you thought it was bad before
Look at Fai's.
Mead, Isaako, Alan, plenty of young backs too. He looks like the biggest guy there, including Lodge.
He has always been that big.
Haven't seen his name mentioned anywhere, but Nikau Terupe looks to still be apart of the top squad, was doing some PR stuff today with Jaydn Su'A.
He was looking pretty good in the trial against the Sharks last pre-season before he got injured, might be an outside chance at that left centre spot until Bird returns, or left wing if we move Oates to the 2nd row.
