    Awesome news. Ballin had another very competent game today & he can only get better with more first grade exposure.

    Let's hope Des keeps Matty in when Smurf is good, (next week?).

    Please, please, please.

    How good is it to have Ballin in the team who doesn't give away penalties or make mistakes like Dunley.

    Burns also has stopped giving away penalties for high shots this year.

    What will you say if Monas gets the 9 back when Orford returns. Burns goes to the bench and Ballin back to PL?

    Good points Tooks. Its making a big difference when we arnt hampered by those penalties. Burns has the same agressive outlook but has tempered the verbal outbursts. It seems the penalties we do now give away are all about slowing down the play the ball.

    That is exactly what will happen.
    What will happen when Matai comes back - Lyon to 5/8th and Burnsie to miss out?
    Great headaches to have but a few bods are going to be disappointed.

    I thnk it is no conincidence that our go-forward has improved with Ballin's service at dummy-half. It is crisp, fluent and he gets pin-point passes to forwards on the advantage line. He picks appropriate points to scoot hiimself and he links with other key players. He also feigns to go open and then switches to blind, catching lazy defences out.

    What has not been said is how effective he is at plugging up the middle in defence.

    He is a gun and can play 80 mins.

    Don't get used to it. It's only temporary.

    or, to be less ambiguous, get to the ground early to catch that excellent service in the PL game once Orford returns.

    i mostly do, hence why i have been a strog backer of him based on his game time, also why i know cuthbo is a second rower not a prop and both meaney and bani are available in depth should we need it.
