It impressed me that he took the first hit up on a number of restarts, where you're on a hiding to nothing, running into the teeth of a defensive line that has had time to set itself. I would have expected the more seasoned front rowers to put their hand up for that task but it was Fifita that wanted the ball. I guess with Josh Curran gone, it's another case of Robbo's famous "next man up".

    Notable absentees - Lindsay Collins, Fletcher Baker and AJ Kepaoa. Injuries, I assume? Anyone in the know?
    First two got injured/HIA'd last week.

    Kep lost his spot when Halldog came back, then Iku. Still young enough to play other grades, but looks a youngster of promise.

    He's got the name for first grade.

    He is a centre. And let’s not talk about replacing Cords for another 5 years.
    Haha it was funny when he played with his hair after he scored.

    The reality with Cords' knees is that he may not last 5 years. He's one of my favourites but I'll be surprised if he lasts more than 3 more seasons.

    Pretty big and will fill out even more. Could be a long term replacement for Cordner.

    He moves well for a big guy. He could be a very good centre.

    Congrats Bears , much needed win. Hutch was terrific and Max Bailey and Capt Freebairn in the forwards too.

    I know Lachie buggered up a couple of plays , but just having him out there creates opportunities ala Keary in firsts.

    I like how they play music when showing try replays, like they used to do in first grade games, adds some needed theatre when watching reserves.
