  • Verills & Radley

    I thought Verills did well yesterday despite the result. Itíll be interesting now to see if Radley comes back into the starting side. I think he was kept on the bench in case the hook needed to come out for Verills. We definitely got more from Radley yesterday then we have been & Verills will only improve with more game time.

    Bring on the dogs, hopefully we can end this streak & start rebuilding our momentum.

    Radley is such a great asset , wasted at hooker.
    Verills was good enough.

      ďGood enoughĒ being the key phrase. What we gain by Radley not being wasted at hooker is worth it.

        When you weigh everything up, 2nd game in first grade, playing behind a beaten pack, almost playing the 80.

        Verrills performance was very, very good.

        My only Slight criticism of him is his line speed needs to improve. I'm sure that will come with match fitness but too many times he was 3m behind the rest of the line, especially on kick chases and it made our middle vulnerable. But when he had to tackle he tackled well, his service was crisp and looks like he's got a bit of toe when he scoots.

        Very impressive for a 19yr old in arguably the toughest position on the field.

          Radley is an awesome player, I'd be surprised if we don't lose him to Origin for game 2.

          That piece of ball playing was simply sublime.

            Best thing about that play was Vic sprinting ahead to back up...often players stay on their heels after throwing a money ball.

              Nsw have too many light mobile forwards already. Cant see it happening

                With either of them we lose too much in defense. Radley gets fatigued and drops off tackles and his attack at 9 becomes error riddled. The young bloke tried hard but he doesn't have a big engine and his defense is week at contact and wrestle in poor. Panthers attack is terrible and they still scored 19 points and could've scored more. We lost the middle yesterday and it was the middles that didn't stand up, hence Robbo's naming the 2 senior guys in the middle. We won't win many games until we get a couple of middles to aim up and a hooker who can defend especially after 20 mins of each half.

                  I think he would make a good right 2nd row. I donít Think Angus is going that bad but he doesnít offload like Radley

                    I was impressed with Verillis at hooker. He looks before he passes (none of the stupid forward passes that even Friend and Radley are guilty of) and has a good passing game overall. Looks to have some elusiveness, meaning when he adjusts to first grade he will be an asset in attack.

                    Agree our kick chase was poor and he took his time. Again it's the pace of the game that he isn't used to, no matter how hard they train. But a handy player to have on the books. Definitely worth persevering with.

                    A tough initiation against a Penrith team running into form and with some big boppers like Regan C-G, Nikau, Leota etc on the prowl. He handled that okay.

                      Radley could be 5/8...judging by that try.

                        Verrills is a hooker and though he might have issues with the speed at this level, he will adapt. Heís far better than Baptiste and will help Jake to get a break when he gets back.

                        Victor will have a good 2019 once we get our stars back.

                          As some smart judges have been saying on here. We canít afford to not utilise Radleyís ball skills in the middle. Our only forward with any skills itís a must that he can use them.

                          Maybe Iím dreaming but Verills reminds me
                          of Cook. Similar build. Nippy from dummy half.

                            Itís usually pretty tough to win without Jarred.
