looks like a good attacking option but does he know how to tackle?

This guy could be the missing link to a premiership. Having a winger with speed and a threat under the high ball is exactly what we need.
Garrick says "Hi Robbo" ,
Or do you mean, Having 2 wingers with speed and a threat under the high balls ?

15kgs to 17kgs weight gain over summer .... hope it is excercise and not KFC ... or worse ..

With all the wraps .. I can't understand how he can't make a first grade side that hasn't won a game since Aunt Mable was a good sort ....

Prefer to blood young Hoppa & Funa before importing outside backs. Albert, if he can remain injury free, apparently has the potential to be a future super star of the game.

Brendan Eliott is in his final year of contract so he will probably free up a position next season. Illawarra has claimed Saab is a long-term prospect and won't release him so nothing is likely to happen anyway.

I mean a threat like Tupou or a threat like Turbo. I cant recall Garrick scoring too many tries from cross kicks. To be honest we hardly ever even try a cross kick to Garrick

Remember that one he scored at the northern end at Brookie last year where the kick bounced really high & he jumped, & caught & grounded the ball in one movement before going into touch?

Granted he wasn't jumping to catch a bomb but it was highlight reel material.

EDIT: it's around the 55 second mark in the vid @SeaEagleRock8 posted.

Yeah, I finally figured that out. The only Saab model I know is 900. Saab's didn't do anything for me, I am mostly a V8 Ford and Porsche guy..
Mine was a 900. Cost a fortune every time it needed a repair, which was frequently, but it was great when it worked.

If the kick is accurate and Turbo is on the spot, will take 75% of high balls...I reckon he is the 1 not used in this way as much as he could be....then again its starting to turn into the Turbo show....suppose we need a few others to make that special play.....
