Jayden really kicked on at Newcastle after playing 70 games with us. Coincidentally Blayke has now played 70 games with us too. Blayke has been good all year, but its interesting that they have both taken a step up around the same time in their careers. It's unfortunate Jayden has had such bad injuries. It would be nice for them both to be playing to compare.Been obvious for a while, and everyone was saying it beforehand, but Blake >>>> Jayden
Jayden, Blayke… even Reece Robson showing some signs atmSo Cooks the NSW incumbent (31 this year). Api is the “next in line” but he turns 30 this year and off to the Tigers.
Is there anyone else knocking on the door or are we going to lose this guy every year at origin time in a couple years?
Brailey stepped in because Hynes has having a shocker (seems the half time speech had an effect though).What I don’t get about Blayke is there are some games where like yesterday he’s all over it and then there’s games like last week where he’s invisible.
I hear all the we have to be winning the ruck etc but reality is we don’t win the ruck in every game and the qualities of good players is that they are there competing and making plays regardless of the game situation and they make things happen, similar to Hynes.. I would love to see more of our players be like this
Last time I checked Blayke Brailey was 3rd on this forum's Leader Board before the game on Sunday & I note players by name of Blayke and Brailey feature on most forum members 3/2/1 points this week so I would think Blayke Brailey is doing okay this season.Brailey stepped in because Hynes has having a shocker (seems the half time speech had an effect though).
I'm not going to blame Brailz for not being creative enough from hooker. Even the team is going badly
Said this last week, we needed more from him last night.If he's firing he's a game changer. Too hesitant or something too often but. I know we're missing some top line go forward for him to work off but he's the #9 and gotta find ways to get it happening a bit more.
