Lane was pretty average here, he was also pretty average at Manly.

Playing in yellow and blue seems to suit him. He's been a lot better this year.

Some good runs and some good defensive efforts in this match.
 
I doubt the Eels will be shopping Moses around now.

Well this is the club that still has Arthur not under contract which is probably smart to wait seeing as they got the spoon last. But they will need to move soon. Then they have their captain having issues getting a deal.

A good coach who’s off contract!? Now I’m excited.

Lane was here for a 6 month holiday, he sorta picked up abit of form last year at Manly during different stages. But along with just about every Eels forward this season, he has gone up a notch or 3. They still have Manu Mau and Nathan Brown to come back to aswell, moving Moeroa into prop rotation. This is a hard to handle forward pack when they hit their straps, as blokes like Terepo really come from the back fence every run. Not quite the athleticism of Nikora, but Niukore has been very solid playing 80mins on that right edge - good lines, big motor, and solid defence.

That isn't a myth, it is a fact. :banghead:
Going by the results the Raiders are achieving with the 4 Poms maybe things have changed. Surely it cant be all down to Ricky ?? LOL
Paul Kent made some interesting comments re these guys on NRL 360 last night, think he was spot on.

Hard to argue there, but it might be more a reflection on the Warriors as an organisation which turns these guys to shit once they join us ??
They were shite before they got here, and one who would know i.e. Graham Lowe said as much when they were all signed. The only decent signing from Wigan was Dean Bell.

To push my point ladies and jellybeans, ever since adam was a boy the ESL comp has had easy games and hard games. The latter are in the minority. This breeds what is known in cricket as flat track bullies.

Now there have been many true hard men from the north, some so tough it makes me weep thinking of them. However it takes a little bit of skill working out the wheat from the chaf as it were. The wheat seeds perceive Sydney as the land of barbecues and shrimps beside Bondi Beach.

The chaf, with their cunning agents, perceive New Zealand as a South Pacific island where one gets money for nothing, and lots of it too. They figure by the time they have been shown up as frauds the money is in the bank and who gives a stuff what the fans think of them.

Just saying like.

What was that? I didn't see it.

I don't know what it is down to, but they seem to be able to find a bargain if CNK is considered. On the other hand we regard Blair as a bargain. :rolleyes: Remember Canberra is almost as unpopular as Auckland for Aussie players so the club and sticky are doing something right. Just don't try telling me we should be signing poms.

The type of Poms we would look to sign would be of the Lee Mossop at Parra type. Good for sweet FA.
