Couldn't find an official thread for the kid.

Looking good for a spot on the bench this year according to an article on the nrl website. Keen to see him get a run.

I’d been meaning to make one, so I could of started both the brothers. I’ll trade you Kyle Flanagan for Blayke?

never seen him play but heard a lot about him.

just from what i've heard i would prefer him over flanno jr at this stage if we are going to have a hooker/half on the bench.

due to jayden though being able to play 80 i would honestly have sorrenson play hooker for 10 minutes to give jayden a spell. he's done it before in nsw cup. then chuck him back in the 2nd row when jayden comes back on.

This kid will be the number 1 benefactor from Flano’s “sacking”. He could be a rep player one day but I don’t think his game is suited to Flano’s style at all. He’s the best prospect in the club IMO.

John Morris could be the best thing for many of the young juniors. With how well he knows them I doubt he'd hesitate to get them in if they are ready.

fwiw, he apparently has been training the house down and putting real pressure on his brother

flanno jnr looked good for a bench spot but will now more than likely have to wait for chads usual form slump to get a run in the team

So we probably expect a Jayden/Seggy style mix with Blayke coming on with 20-30 to go looking to take advantage of fatigue?

I would think so, the only difference being he spot is %100 up for grabs.

I think we knew what we had with Jayden and Blayke and were never really prepared to back Seggy fully, even if he was playing better football at the time.

Blayke and Jayden are going to have this awesome rivalry this year and it’s only going to bring out the best in both of them.

Ability will only get you so far in this comp, he needs 10-15kg of muscle before he can be given a shot.

Hookers need to be tough, from what I saw of him, he is too small at the moment.

Seggy could have easily played more (or even started) and there were a few time I wanted him on 5 or 10 minutes sooner. In general I was happy with how we used him and I think it allowed us to get the most out of him in terms of his explosiveness and ability to do something unexpected.

I'm still surprised he hasn't found a contract somewhere.

seggy is 170cm and 84kg

blayke is 184cm and 88kg


very odd take
