For me it is an upgrade over Cooper Johns
Another good buy here from the club. I thought he brought some really good stability and free flow in the pivot role in the last few games. Actually reminded me of Foz with some additional speed. Great backup to our starting halves + potential cover in backrow / backline. This kid has a bright future ahead of him me thinks.Arthurs is a good player who proved his worth this season and will IMO on what I seen just get better.
I love every one that is a Manly WinnerI know BOZO isnt onboard with Seibs and Mestrov and the only way to get people like him onboard is to have the team show that "Manly Mentality".... Just ask Bozo..hehe
He's still growing and, in time, will probably play as a lock as he has the necessary skills to link well with the backline. I think this was a very astute recruitment.Not too sure with Jacob [ Arthur ] being that suited to the back row at the present time , good competitor but would have to be a lot more robust all round to transition there, especially in defence
Not a bad range of skills , good attitude and again certainly prepared to have a go .
Club can no doubt see the type of value he can provide and scope for some more improvement
Have to be a bit prudent ideally filling those main squad positions but Jacob seems more then deserving in the current circumstances .
Thanks for the feedback mate, cheers. Good to see he is keen to improve next year. Thats the attitude you need to succeedI went for a walk around Brooky with the kids today to check out our new seats for next year in the Bob Fulton stand. In the gym on his own with music blaring and working hard on the Assault Bike was Jacob Arthur.
That's the type of discipline you cant coach.I went for a walk around Brooky with the kids today to check out our new seats for next year in the Bob Fulton stand. In the gym on his own with music blaring and working hard on the Assault Bike was Jacob Arthur.
Are you thinking Arthur off the bench into a ball playing lock? I don’t mind that idea. Would need to be him or Gordie at 14 though, probably can’t carry both.That's the type of discipline you cant coach.
Looking at U . He's our first in line in the halves. In time that 13 and 14 option too. You just never know what opportunity awaits. But only he can control if he is ready to take em.
After watching our ex Manly five eight come off the bench for the Aussies last night. He went way better taking a ruck and roaming all be it when the heat had been taken out of the game at that level then I would was expecting. And that last pass for the last try was just pretty and why and extra play maker should always be an option .
I still think not have Jake at lock is where we team is at. Bull starting in the 13 for mine. But dam they should be lining up for that coming off the pine and having that opportunity to ball play amongst the fatigued late.
Yeah. Its an option we should have.Are you thinking Arthur off the bench into a ball playing lock? I don’t mind that idea. Would need to be him or Gordie at 14 though, probably can’t carry both.
