Haami,

Steve Price has been correctly rated the NRL's best captain for many years. He was outstanding at the Bulldogs in several crises.

He's not responsible for silly errors or missed tackles. There's only so much Pricey can do.

Have no probs with Pricey captaining the side. Personally I think he does a fine job.
But back on topic however; I haven't had a chance to see how Fraser is going but I do think Louis is going quite well at the Warriors. He's learning more each time and that will only make him better. I think that after Vinnie left it was probably a chance for Louis to take some responsibilites for himself instead of just having an older brother around. If you get my drift.

well i can tell you i think Fraser Anderson is the dissapointment of the Century!!! there was all this talk in the off season from his father, his father Warwick took it to a lot of press and claimed that Fraser was better than SBW and Gaznier combined. No-one else in the club would back up his comments and now i can see why. he has the defense of an 8 year old. cannot tackle, and for that matter, cannot attack. he will probably come good but there is no way that he'll ever be up with gaz and SBW they tore teams apart on their debuts. Louis is by far the better of the clan. so far.

That's not true. The only article I read regarding Fraser Anderson prior to his debut was from the Broncos talking him up. They did quote his father once or twice, but the main theme of the article, (that Fraser Anderson would be the next superstar), was driven by the club.

Re: the Cambodian players. They were two brothers who have not yet played first grade, so none of those mentioned so far are who I was thinking about. I think they're names rhymed with each other, too.

I rate Vinnie ahead of Louie, brillaint line runner made breaks for us every game was consitantly alot better than Toopi.
For my mind Louie hasn't kicked on from where he started. I don't really think Louie is playing that well.

New man with a mission

MEET the Broncos' new Mr Natural.

Standing 190cm, weighing 103kg and packing pace, power and potential is Fraser Anderson, middle brother of Kiwi Test stars Vinnie and Louis.

At Broncos training last week, the 21-year-old monolith pipped renowned speedster Leon Bott over 40m with a scorching 4.92sec.

The time, recorded running into a fierce headwind in wet conditions, was the fastest in the squad.

He also finished near the top for tests measuring endurance and explosiveness.

Not bad for a guy with just five games in three years under his belt.

A product of Auckland's East Coast Bays club, Anderson quit the New Zealand Warriors development squad in 2003 to join a Mormon missionary in the Philippines town of Olongapo.

It wasn't until June that he ended his role as a missionary. But he has no regrets.

"I wanted a different experience and I got one - it changed my life," he said.

"I saw some shocking things. The conditions were poor - Third World kind of stuff - and we'd just go around helping out where we could.

"It was very hard to walk away from footy, but I also knew it would help me become a better person."

Warrick Anderson said he was "proud as punch" of his son for following his faith.

"It shows what sort of man Fraser is," he said.

"He paid his own way by selling his car and stereo and other things.

"There are not a lot of men who would give up what he did."

His opportunity with the Broncos came when Warrick - who coaches the Bays' open side - persuaded Brisbane mentor Wayne Bennett to give his son a trial. Anderson Sr yesterday rated Fraser a better player than both Vinnie and Louis and potentially the NRL's "next best thing".

"He's a cross between Sonny Bill Williams and Mark Gasnier," he said.

"Gasnier is the perfect centre and Fraser can be as good as him, and he will be better than Sonny Bill.

"He's big, tall, fast, has tremendous ball skills, is great on his feet and is a ferocious tackler."

Bays club president Clive Lindsay predicted Anderson would play for New Zealand by 2007. "He's just amazing, he's going to be an awesome player," he said.

Also a talented basketballer, Anderson made the New Zealand under-23 squad as a shooting guard when he was 15 and turned down scholarships to US colleges Washington State and Brigham Young University.

He also rejected recent interest from the New Zealand Breakers NBL franchise.

"I was tempted to go but league is such a family affair . . . it's in the blood," he said.

The Broncos consider Anderson a possible wing option, with Bott and Scott Minto likely to be under pressure to retain their spots.

"I'm a centre but Wayne's got me catching high balls," Anderson said.

Broncos prop Sam Thaiday said the players were astonished at Anderson's agility.

Back-rower David Stagg compared him with former flyers Wendell Sailor and Lote Tuqiri.

But Warrick Anderson said his son's greatest assets were his work ethic and competitiveness.

"If anyone gets the better of him I pity that person the next time," Warrick Sr said.

It's enough to have Broncos officials drooling in anticipation.

And while the proof will be in the pudding, it should at least be a feast worth waiting for.

You are right 2b2s, Warrick is really blowing Frasers horn, the real problem is that he doesn't fit the Rhyme scheme Vinnie Louie frasery just doesn't work bound to fail.

Was it a good one?

Almost my best! Lol, nah...just saying that I'd read a different article than the one posted. But boy, Fraser's father is really pushing for him in that one! :shock:
