    People have been sleeping on Nat Butcher this season. His workrate and offload is a point of difference to the other middles we have coming through.

    Alot has been made about his size but he will only get better the older he gets and the more he fills out.

    He has been solid so far this season and tonight he was very good. An important offload in the lead up to Teddys try.

    Angus Crichton would want to step it up another gear quickly there's plenty of talent sitting in the wings and in a night when we needed our big name forwards to step up I didn't see much from him.
    Excellent post, Butcher is going fine. Some people expect newcomers to first grade to dominate from the get go, and if they don't, are quick to right them off. All players develop at different rates, Ikavalu being a prime example. The amazing thing is the usual suspects do it over and over again.

    • Great result form Easts under 20ís to beat the Storm even with the home town 10-5 penalty count that turned the game around in the 3rd quarter.
      The phony crowd noise they play over the PA to supplement the renta crowd works every time on the refs.

        Zane Tetevano and Matt Ikuvalu. Took the hits and kept up the quality and execution. A big part of our win tonight.
        Was thinking the same. I need to give credit to Butcher as well. He was solid.

        • I have one serious complaint.

          Those effing pigeons were annoying the crap out of me on the telecast. Iím writing a letter to Greenberg.

            Perhaps the pigeons could be banned under the no fault rule

              Yes liked that they played the 20Ēs in the park outside the stadium good atmosphere without the cost of running the stadium. We should look at a similar approach.

              Agreed the fake atmosphere with the pre records is a bit embarrassing. On par with Souths at ANZ.
