WS - are you referring to a more capable player that should be No.14 ahead of Tracey?

I think that's what Punisher was saying. CT is the perfect 14 because he can provide cover during the game (as opposed to an actual starting replacement etc).
I’m not against Connor in the 14 jersey, I would just prefer that we shuffle up a bit to fit him into 2,3,4 or 5 rather than slotting him in if we lost a 6, 7 or 9 unless we lost multiple spine players, then we may not have a choice.

there was a better guy though, danny maguire

70% of his tries were from support play
There was arguably one better - Terrance Ba Ba Lamb. Freakish how he would always be supporting on the inside for a try without a hand laid on him. I couldn’t stand him once he left Wests, but begrudgingly had to admire his ability to support a break.

I saw Tezza in 2016 at a GF luncheon. I couldn't believe how short was.

What a player. Probably wouldn't get through the junior system in the modern era due to his size.

Yeah he's wider than he is tall these days.

Obviously directed a lot of their attack down their left but Tracey made a stack of tackles.

24-2 is a pretty big defensive load for a centre
Took our second most runs too

He seems to juggle the trying scoring pass EVERYTIME, before he crosses the line.

Mate he could juggle fire sticks as far as I'm concerned!
I’m waiting for the crucial one he drops with the try line begging and wide open. Hoping it doesn’t happen of course.
Would just prefer he holds onto it first up and not have my heart in my throat for a millisecond.
