I think that headline is a typo and is supposed to be the other way round. Of course I won't be watching that garbage to find out.

you really should watch it.

Do you mean Luka Dončić..... the Slovenian professional basketball player for the Dallas Mavericks of the National Basketball Association? Nicknamed “Luka Magic”, he also plays for the Slovenia national team and is regarded as one of the greatest European players of all time.......

That Luka Doncic?

Well yes. Not saying they are spitting images of each other, just that there are similarities.

With the Reynolds injury this is Jocks chance to show he's the guy.
It's not a one week fill in, he's got a minimum 12 weeks to show what he's got and whether we go looking elsewhere or not.
I guess in a way the Reynolds injury is what we needed before he hangs up the boots, we don't want to be going into 26 putting all hope on Jock and he's not up to it.

How Ezra and Walsh handle this period will give us a idea of what we really need in that 7 Jersey moving forward.

IF… and that’s a BIG IF…
If Ezra and Reece can play to their potential (every week) we can have Jock, Joe, Jack or Jill at #7 and we still win the comp.
Shall I remind everyone who the premiership winning halfback of ‘06 was?!
Exactly.
Yes, we had Locky of course. I’m just saying that with the two guys there in Mam & Walsh we can get it done.
Our forwards are capable, so we just need a solid role player at 7.

Nah , defence has improved too much to not have a half who is a threat .
You need the half to create space for the strike players . Reynolds is a threat as a runner which keeps defence honest .
Start catching and passing all the time the defence will just slide off and cramp the attack .

I'd say Madden is a bigger threat as a runner. Not against a younger peak Reynolds, but current body Reynolds.

I think you're going to see a Madden that will be hard to keep away from other clubs without an established halfback after the 12 weeks.

Yes Madden has some wheels .
I was comparing Reynolds to Shane Perry circa 2006 though . Reynolds doesn`t mind a trot himself once in a while to keep the attack straight and be a threat himself .

I think at atm Madden has it, he lacks the alpha male asking for the ball shit you want from a 7 but his kicking game is not far from the best atm, he just need a kick up the ass to get it all imo.

we have enough game to see him devlop that though, but from what i have seen this year his kicking game is superb and exactly what you want from a 7.

Been saying for a long time I think Madden will be great for us post-Reyno and the more time he gets the more comfortable I am that he will be a more than serviceable #7. I really like the bloke, hope he has a blinder today.
