Been a fan of his for a long time. The knock on him was his defence, but these last two weeks his defence has been outstanding. Hiku and Beale will be off contract after th 2020 season. So you'd think the money to sign him would be available, however I dont see him leaving the Roosters.
I think hes started to realise over the last two games how good he can be, hes barely scratched the surface when it comes to realising his potential. Which is scary as a non Roosters fan at NRL level, but exciting as a Kiwis supporter.
For as much as they dominate the regular rounds and the semi-finals their record in Grand Finals isn't the best. When you get there they are beatable. A nice problem to have as they seem to get the a lot but it is still gutting when you lose.Useless Storm, the one time I want them to bloody win a final.
They will lose Ferguson, Ryan Matterson and a few reserves graders no one has heard about so that should even things out.To think the cocks get even more rep quality players next season.
The talk at the start of the year was they brought Cronk to win them a premiership like SBW did and to have an impact on their professionalism. Looks like he is on the way to a job well done.
A broken scapula ouch. The recovery time on that will be interesting as I haven't heard of too many players suffering from that.
They hid him well.
