I get the T-rex comparisons, but don't forget that there was a time when T-rex was almost unstoppable. Yes, it was a brief time, but he was a very good player for Manly, NSW and Australia before things went south. The really frustrating thing is that Paseka hasn't shown anything yet.
So the secret could well be Foran prodding the bear !! @:p

Just watching Storm v Roosters- why can’t Paseka run as hard at the line like Solamona does ???
Paseka runs like a girl & has no idea how to use his massive frame. Des needs to slap him across the face and wake him up otherwise piss him off as he really offers nothing at the moment and we already have enough front rowers miles ahead of him.

He has no brace. The goodens generally brace themselves before impact , so they try to control the deflect. Not saying they slow down, they buff up, go jonny bravo to stop as many leg tackles

He just kerps getting cut down, he needs to challenge the initial contact more by stepping ito it befoe impact with objective to position his body better for continuance.

Could you imagine if he played like big NAS? I’d swap tentative safe play for psychological impact of a big unit coming at you with a scowl on his face any day, even at the cost of a few errors.

When is the last time we had a huge impact player like we would like Paseka to be? Do we class AFB and Taupau the same as a Klemmer, NAS or Haas in terms of raw impact?

The answer is Paseka must lift his intensity 2morrow along with his other Manly mates and redeem them selves once more . Last weeks 40 point cricket score was an injustice to their ability
No effort no results . Lift up your games boys
