    This guy needs his own thread, because he is our last great hope of salvaging something from the impending wreckage of 2016. This guy is a better prospect than Elgey IMO, because he doesn't run with his chin glued to the bottom of his neck (in case some of you haven't noticed, Elgey has a peculiar running style haha).

    Im the serious stakes however, this kid has all the skills. He played in the 7 along side Brooks who wore 6 in the NSW under 20's which also contained Clinton Gutherson at 1; come on Clint, get in this guys ear. He is young and you can build a team around a young half. He is not Sandow or Hodkinson, so he has that going for him too. Canberra had high hopes for this kid, but with Stuart at the helm, his confidence has probably taken a shot, but he can find it again at Manly.

    My team for next year looks like this;

    Snake
    Gutherson
    Hiku
    Matai
    Taufua

    Lyon
    Cornish

    Myles
    Ballin
    Jake Trbojevic
    Sika Manu
    Symonds
    Buhrer

    Mateo
    Lawrence
    Lui
    McInnes

    I think we should look at Albert Kelly as well, because he can cover a few positions, and the chances of Cornish and Lyon remaining fit for the duration of the season are slim.

    Tom T should never play Toyota cup or NSW cup again. He's a first grader.

    I like what i have seen of Cornish. I think he as suffered under Ricky Stuart. Would much prefer him over Sandow and Hodko

    I think we can get him, especially when blake green will be 6 and sezer 7 at raiders, unless he wants to play reserve grade

    I disagree.

    At 18, he still has plenty to learn about playing fullback and he can't do that with Snake in the 1. I also think his body should develop against guys his own age, rather than seasoned first graders. Nothing good comes of rushing a future star, especially when we have other stars (like Gutherson) who are 3 years older and have developed that little bit more. All in good time is my motto.

    Cornish played junior Kangaroos?!

    I don't know if you noticed, but Sione Matau'tia was picked for Australia last year, Dugan and Johnston got picked this year, so it doesn't take much to be considered an International these days haha.

    To be fair, TT is over 6 foot and weighs 92 kg's. He ran for over 200m and scored 2 tries on his debut and put his teammates to shame.
    He's in 1st grade to stay IMO.

    Cornish is an option I like more than most of the others.

    I've been more impressed with Blake Austin. The guy is on fire this year. I'd take him in a heartbeat.

    Pity about the mid 90 style horrific undercut.

    He looks like the kinda guy you'd see selling goods in an army disposal store.

    Look, I'd take my 84 year old grandmother over the train wreck that is Sandow, Hod, and Carney.

    So failing her availability I'd be happy with Pasti

    Am I chopped liver over here? I refer you all to my posts on Cornish in other threads. They were largely ignored, sometimes ridiculed. He is well worth a look. Excellent track record at junior level, still young, only 8 1st grade games. Full of potential.

    Lol chopped liver. You obviously you needed to give him his own thread title @;). Agree with you on his abilities.

    Agree 100%, if you good enough your old enough. No point holding back players that are clearly 1st graders.
    Brad Fittler, Israil Folau, Andrew Johns just a few players that have debut in there teens...

    I am from Canberra & have watched every one of his 1st grade games. He was supposed to be the next big thing, the next Ricky Stuart. He seems over coached & lost that instinctive approach. He looked very ordinary in most games, so I am not a fan.
