Isaako is certainly built like a footballer, wonder if there has been work going on between the ears to improve his play also?

First sighting of Isaako.

View attachment 16057

Looks like they've brought in a specialist wing trainer for him:

Def a no dickhead policy it seems.

I would not be surprised to see him and Pereira make it into the round 1 side but the question would be at the expense of whom. Kevvie doesn't seem like a bloke to just go based on reputations / hype as we saw with who was willing to drop last year - I REALLY respect and like that about Kevvie.

Agreed. Also now the support is there from HQ a standard has been set. Something that was missing since WB days.

With Flegler suspended for round 1, that opens up a spot for Jensen

Pereira is a tougher one ... if Herbie gets a go at fullback that means it could be:

1. Herbie
2. Oates
3. Staggs
4. Lee/Cobbo
5 Pereira

Or it could possibly be

1. Tesi
2 Oates
3 Staggs
4. Herbie
5. Pereira/Cobbo

The other backline possibility that I foresee are

1. Cobbo
2. Oates
3. Staggs
4. Herbie
5. Pereira

Lest likely as I don't think they'll throw Cobbo into the deep end immediately. I think they try to develop him in the QCup a bit more if they see his long term position as fullback

We have nothing to be ashamed of and anyone who pretends they are - and the rest of us should be - can **** off, figuratively and/or literally. It's all condescending fake horseshit.
You can **** off. Stick to posting the articles, your opinions are bullshit

FWIW, Dobbo predicts us to be a top 6 side next year. reckons he's spent a fair bit of time at Broncos training. predicts our strongest 13 (plus utility) as well: here is the lineup he predicts:

1. Nui
2. Oates
3. Cobbo
4. Staggs
5. Farnworth
6. Gamble/Kelly
7. Reynolds (c)
8. Flegler
9. Turpin
10. Haas
11. Capewell
12. Riki
13. Carrigan

14. Paix/Walters

I basically agree. Carrigan at prop though would be nice.

Wow, you piled shit on me for posting this exact list last week. You said "Dobbo wouldn't know." I can't keep up with you kids today.

a) you deserve shit piled on you for 99% of what you say on here

b) I never said I believed it, just sharing it so the other posters can make up their own minds
