Someone do a photo size comparison of Geoff Toovey/Cooper Johns both at 23 years of age to put things into perspective please.
He has some potential. He just needs to get more NRL experience and given the opportunity to play his natural game. He has everything to prove and if anything his name has placed more pressure on his career than anything. I am excited to see him show us what he has got as he gains in confidence and experience.Can’t believe Cooper is in over Weekes! Another one only playing 1st grade because of his name.
I think he will surprise a few once he starts getting some serious game time. Hopefully we lock him in when the timing is right. We could be potentially screwed in the halves in a couple of years.Toovey was a once in a century freak ... are you suggesting that John's is also a once in a generation or more player?
Also forwards are at least 10-15kg's heavier, faster, fitter and stronger than in 2V's day ...

Samuela still there as 22. Edging closer to a debut.
NRL Team Update: Round 5 v KnightsManly Warringah Sea Eagles Coach Anthony Seibold has updated his Round 5 squad to take on the Newcastle Knights at 3pm tomorrow at Glen Willow Oval, Mudgee.www.seaeagles.com.au
Nothing mentioned about Brailey officially, but this seems to be the talk on their forum site that he's out.Any update on this Alby?
Somebody posted this on the Knights forum, but no updates, apart from not seeing him in todays training photos..Any update on this Alby?
What about Humphries and Fainu for DCE replacement? Do you think Johns is really ahead of these 2? As a permanent replacement that is.I think that Weekes would likely be more erratic and less consistent in the halves than Johns. I also believe that Johns has a superior passing game and kicking game compared to Weekes and will add more stability in the halves. Johns needs these opportunities in the limelight as he will find himself called upon in the halves at various stages throughout the year. He has only played a dozen NRL games in his early career and if he lives up to his potential and makes the most of these limited opportunities he could easily blossom into a possible permanent DCE replacement down the track if he comes up with the goods. He seems to have some good composure which is a good balance to compliment DCE's unpredictability.
