Always wondered if a club could provide meals and it not be included in the cap.

Reckon they'd provide all of the sports nutrition stuff. I think that's what he does when he wakes up in the middle of the night, downs a protein shake.

I'd take the Homer Simpson approach myself and get stuck into bacon and wear a moo moo dress.

Could a club provide all their players their meals for the week and it not count towards the cap? If a player didn’t have to worry about food, they could accept a lower contract amount. Obviously a clubs wealth comes into it, being able to provide that financially, but for a club like the roosters I reckon it would be just another way for them to get a leg up.

Don't think it'd make that much difference money wise, they're not having panda steaks with sides of shark fin soup or anything.

I'm pretty sure they'd provide supplements though. Not that it's always a great idea...

I'll be laughed at but I would like to try him at hooker amongst tired forwards.

Not so much hooker because his service & passing in general is iffy. But just loitering around the ruck ready to burst into a gap behind a slow/offside marker or exploit a tired bloke 1 or 2 wider, force an edge in, quick PTB. A nippy menace around the ruck whose good for that Smith/Cronk/Slater outside/inside play or just to grab easy '6 agains'.

The way he plays, his attitude, I gotta find him a spot. He's a bloke Melbourne recruit & just make it work.

My issue with Brailey is he looks like a kid amongst men. He needs to bulk up. He is 3cm taller and 7kg lighter than Grant. He is also 3cm taller and 8kg lighter than Cook.

He looks it but he lack no courage & when he gets low & drives he puts some monsters on their back. Nailed a rampaging Thompson from Bulldogs the other week

A lot of our squad have this problem - some of them need to go on a big meal program next year

Seen something in the offseason BB was smashing 6 big meals a day, waking up at ridiculous hours to put away another steak to try bulk up.

was a little better in attack today but in defence was worse - think his missed tackle led to a try or two.

Trindalls worst game this in the halves too couldn’t create anything - our forwards got dominated way too easy

Mmm not sure I want him in the centres next year either, off the bench at 14 is fine for him.

Tend to agree .
A perfect bench player .
As there are better players we could play or buy that would be better in each of the individual position . 1-13
