Great to watch Toyota cup game on weekend. What a great win, did anyone see the defence, Manly boys stopped at least 6 full sets on our goalline. Penna was known as a highly rated attacking player but he seems to have defensive plans downpat too. I really feel he is a big chance of taking over from Des. His teams play exciting footy and seem to have lots of structure. Some standouts to watch for include: 1. half Gary Riccardi: Brought down from qld with huge wraps, only young but just has awesome game and controls it well. Great kicker as well in general play. Seems to be similar to Hokko. 2. Hoppa jnr: great presence, knows when to chime in etc. Fantastic play at the back. 3. Front row: Lama Tasi (19): the wraps are out about him as listening to NZ commentators. He is in under 20 NZ team. Absolutely looks a great talent. He is really well built, runs like Moi Moi and hits hard. Another great thing is he plays loads of minutes for a big guy. Without doubt, the next player to look at our 1st grade squad in coming years. Wonderful build for a footy player, similar to Burgess. 4. Hooker Liam Higgins (19): every time I see him play he is just a genius at dummy half. He makes these wonderful scurries that gain huge yards but then hits players with quality ball to keep them moving forward. He kicks from dummy half and just looks quality. I did hear that Knights were sorry he left their club. Similar to Ballin but makes more yards out of dummy half. 5. Prop: James Cunningham (19): works great with Tasi. Not as big but gets around field really well. Always seems to get hit early but bounces back for more. I have heard he has been earmarked for better things for at least 2-3 years. Shocking Â player: On weekend Jack Webster filled in for Portlock. He is the shaggy blonde hair winger. I have watched him go thru sg ball etc and cannot belive he is in Toyota cup. Warriors scored at least 2-3 tries thru his wing. Must have some relative/official who has quality shots of Des or Penna with that sheep and pig lol.
