He doesn’t look like a great prospect, more a Daniel Alvaro type; he’ll do a steady job but steady is his ceiling. Leg speed is non-existent.

good on him for getting a game and turning up with a strong effort...

I was waiting for to get knocked into the bleachers....so direct with zero preservation, they shook him but put his hand up for another hit up same set...
As Snake stated, his feet are like the Matrix but you know what....he got it done and has a big heart - congrats I reckon....

I think he went OK. Needs more leg drive but plenty of effort and involvement, happy if he's named on the bench for now.

Got a bit of barney rubble about him, a tad taller. I do wonder how the reggie players cope when they do a first grade warm up

He was great. Not sure how much more he has in him, but I won't write off a player who definitely has the attitude, and he does. Croker, Parker, Harper are other examples of players at first glance you think ahh, probably reserve grader, but that's not the case!

The zero errors is a nice exclamation point on the 130 odd metres and 18 tackles on debut.

15 tackles, 132 run metres, 14 runs, 0 errors or missed tackles. They can be as slow as they want, he produced.
100% for a guys that is 25 and only played 25 odd NSW cup games he did exactly what we couod have hoped for.
If someosaid before his debut that they would be his stats then you would take that in a heart beat! Great depth player when hit with a bad injury toll.

I do think he is a top 30 player at best but solid, can definitely do a job when needed. Can't ask much more for a guy that's not even top 30 contracted. From earlier reports he was still working a full time job and training on top of this. Give him a full time contract and he would definitely improve on this. A late bloomer too at 25 he has only played 25 NSW cup games

Bit like Davey, the late bloomers can often be the most highly motivated?

He is great prospect. Not sure if he will get enough games to shine. But have no doubt he can shine at the top level if given the opportunity. Well done Desmond here.

Great effort from Kurt. Impressive stat's for a debut. Just needs a bit more speed and get his centre of gravity a bit lower when he does hit ups. Solid effort lad well done.
