    Just wondering if any of you 'hardcore' supporters have been out to training yet? I'm just interested in how the boys look, in particular Lorenzo Ma'fau. Have been told he will be a gun if he can keep out of trouble.

    For sure will be interesting to see. For us to sign him after a drug ban must have something to offer. Im sure manly can straighten him out to.

    Thanks Copa

    If the height and weight are correct he's quite small for a prop.

    He is a ball playing back rower who can make a break himself & put on a good shot. More impact due to offering more quality than quantity - will definately push for a bench spot & if guided well by Tooves will break into the top 17.

    The old "spiked drink" defence, always reeks of credibility that one.

    Hughie Stanley and Mitchell Buckett...
    They both played for the sunshine coast team last year!
    If u get to google check out a game they played against central comets on the 22nd of august 2011. Both scored 3 tries! Stanley has played lower grades with the roosters! My mail is the broncos were keen on Buckett but choose the sea eagles because of Daly-Evans...
    IStanley also kicks goals...

    About the same height as Joe and a little lighter, but could put on a few more k's if necessary.

    HAZ88 i have been told (from a very good source) that he is lightning for a backrower and often scores long range tries in Q cup. Is a bit of an animal too apparently. [hr]
    On further investigation he played for QLD residents this year and won the Allan Langer medal at the Ippy Jets for best and fairest.

    Only marginally in front on the credibility stakes than when Craig Field said someone gave him a "cocaine '' tablet

    Cheers Stevo!! That sounds very promising , bit of a animal to i like that, hopefully he has that bit of mongrel in him also(on the field).

    Could be a good prospect for us , you would have to think he would learn a fair bit to from our squad with the backrowers that we have!

    Did not hear about these 2 speedsters either ?? lol
