    Lachlan Lam Kyle Flanagan Jackson Hastings

    I canít believe the club is considering Kyle Flanagan as a replacement for Lachlan.
    Lammys son has only had a limited impact in a gun side and he feels the need to prove himself I reckon.

    the word on the street is that the real gun from the shire is the younger Brailey, and I bloody agree by watching him play. That kid is the one we should have grabbed.
    Kyle has had mixed reviews over the years, Lachlan had a pretty consistent reputation that he would make it in the toughest arena.

    Then you have to consider if they are both Jackson Hastings types?
    Famous father, big junior reputations but struggled at the top level.

    Chad Townsend came with a big junior rep. Was pretty ineffective for about 4 years, was exiled to the Warriors and came back a different player.
    He almost packed it in at one stage after his spirit broken by The coach. He fought on, he improved and he is now a premiership winner and a valued halfback.

    its a lot of pressure for young kids

    Flanno in a patch up team was terrific against a desperate Storm

    I thought young Flanno pulled off a couple of really good tackles last night.

    Bears will be pistof if they lose Lammy to our bench this week, which could happen with Ikuvalu injury.
    We'll know soon about that one. Assuming he is in they are fielding a very strong 13 this week. Need to after the thrashing from St George. But this side looks great on paper.

    Agreed JFC. The first option should be to select from within our own ranks as these guys are already in the system, they know some of the structures and are familiar with the first 17.

    That has enabled the likes of Mitchell, Momirovski, Manu, Butcher, Sitili, Curran, the Farmer and Victor to reach first grade standard and play their role over the last couple of years.

    The second and more expensive option is to recruit the outside talent, where the experience is a necessity or a position becomes hard to fill.

    Talking of Bears, what do you think of Fletcher Baker? Seems that our Roosters boys going back to the Bears has pushed him out of the 13, I liked the look of him early this year.

    Yeah good points Louis.

    The broader point too that people miss is we have two other grades that feed into the whole club. We aren't just 17 players that hit the field for Easts first grade each week.

    Im just as interested in what Lachie does for the Bears this year as what I am when subbing in for firsts. If he can steer them to the back end of the Canterbury Cup finals he may well be on the right path.

    It's really important to have that 'one club' culture and use guys you have developed. And not rely on outside recruitment at the expense of that.

He's a Rooster junior through and through who passed up the chance to join his dad in the UK and 'earn' a position in the top grade.

    Reminding me of the Midnight Oil classic Short Memory....Anybody around here heard of a bloke called Joey Manu. He made an enterprising debut too and then had a few average games. I'm happy to sau I went to bay for Joey and am doing the same for Adrian. He deserves a fair go.

    I hope Lam makes it. However, it's professional sport and the Roosters are about winning.

    If he doesn't show enough in the few remaining chances he gets this season the pressure will be on him.

    The club should do what they can to bring in AJ Brimson. He is going to be an absolute superstar.
