Grizzly old fart
always had wraps on Tent [ Paseka ] but maybe to just give some more attention to his defensive technique , has tended to fall of or drop off some tackles in recent times . Much better to stay more on his feet and try and effect some better targeted tackling . Always tries to get over the advantage line with good , hard runs and no issues there but again maybe just some more selective and ' hit and stick ' type defence . No reason why Siro can not go well as a middle if he can focus on his strengths and fit into the present pattern of play , surely he has had enough experience by now .


Always difficult for a tall big man to be a great defender. They don't move quite a fast and have a long way down to nab one of the little guys

Just seems to be going in too early occasionally with legs tackles and missing his mark . Agile and big enough to hit more direct and to be maybe better balanced on his feet

Gosh Des uses a lot of words to get across something he could say in a quarter of the time. But hey, I'm sure there are many on this site would suggest I'm an expert at verbosity, going on and on and on. Further, I'd like to say..... :party:
Why stop there?

NRL emergency in wake of Queensland lockdown

The NRL could be forced to suspend matches this weekend with the Queensland Government announcing a lockdown in Brisbane.

The NRL are investigating the impact on the competition following an emergency lockdown declared by the Queensland Government.

Parts of Queensland will go into lockdown from 4pm today, as health officials confirm there are six new local cases of Covid-19 — all the highly infectious Delta strain.

Deputy Premier Steven Miles said the lockdown would start at 4pm on Saturday with the 11 local government areas (LGAs) already subject to mask requirements ordered to stay at home.

He said it would be the strictest lockdown Queensland has ever had.

Chief Health Officer Dr Jeanette Young said there would be no games.

“No, there will be no football matches,” Dr Young said.

“So, no community sport, no professional sport, nothing for the next three days. Starting as of 4pm today.”

V’landys said the NRL was trying to keep the games going, with a Suncorp Stadium double header scheduled for Saturday night.

“I am talking to the government,” he said.

Asked if the NRL will be shut down, V’landys said: “I don’t know. We are going through several options at the moment. We are trying to keep the games going.”
