The O'Neil and Marsters one is a difficult one (though probably one in vain as Coach Green will probably try pick both of them).What I’d like to see:
What we know we will actually see:
Good form from Oneil, i think he can coast in games and do his bare minimum, when i want a bit more.The O'Neil and Marsters one is a difficult one (though probably one in vain as Coach Green will probably try pick both of them).
O'Neil has a more tidy game now than the last few years. He is putting his body on the line more, finding the try line better than he has the last couple of years, and is not making as many mistakes. His speed has worsened every year since 2016, but we have Hamiso and Val in the team now to soften that blow. He is not getting any better, and is past his prime. But he is not going to cost us a game either (excluding the game Hampton lost his confidence, and O'Neil was struggling to know when to support or defend his own man).
Marsters hasn't showed us much x-factor yet or scoring yet. But he can break tackles, make metres and do a lot of tough hit-ups we haven't seen a centre do since Kano. But his D (or attitude in D) is terrible.
Fully fit, I'd rather we just go:
1 Holmes / Hammer
5 Holmes / Hammer
Opa started off looking like a horrible signing for us (and when a fan thinks 'why did we take scraps from the Broncos'). By the end of last year, I saw some hints of an origin player with his toughness/ attitude/ energy etc.Good form from Oneil, i think he can coast in games and do his bare minimum, when i want a bit more.
That high energy Opacic bought is what team needs, willing to accept an error from him, if he does the rest right...has to be next to Feldt for max benefit to team
I noticed Tom had quite a handy kicking game at times last year. He strikes me as the kind of player that Melbourne would take and make a lot out of.Opacic is a fair bit more skilful than the stodgy ‘grafter’ he is pigeon holed as IMO
How often did he look like he would bust the Knights right open at times And THAT flick pass.
I’d say he is borderline criminally underrated at this point.
FMD.....let's just change the rules as we see fit. So now the ONE referee has to watch the ruck, the play the ball & check teams are back the 10.........or are we going have the touchies rushing with their flag up "offside...offside....offside".The Australian Rugby League Commission (ARLC) today approved a variation to the "Six Again" rule which will allow referees to re-start the tackle count if markers are not square or break early at the play the ball.www.nrl.com
The ARL Commission has expanded the 6-again rule to include markers not being square and breaking early. Effective this weekend.
