"I really liked the old-school front-rowers. Shane Webcke, Mark O'Meley – that kind of style of front-rower ... Jason Taumalolo's been one of my favourite players for a long time."

Just copied that same quote to paste here! Just the mentality we need, can't wait to see him get a game

Players named also stood out to me, good role models for a 125kg ball of muscle

This is one player I'd be happy to take the punt and offer a 3 year deal .
Right Now.

Think the only way he’ll be stopped is if we bring the head highs back. Can’t run without a head

The Ridge!
I'm yet to be convinced by Franklin. Yes he is young and a big strong unit but the way the game has changed, it's not friendly to the big fellas.

I'm concerned at how he'll handle the speed of an NRL game.

Any thoughts of signing him to a 3 year extension is laughable.

Let's see how he goes in the top grade first - if he is selected of course!

We'll see ,
Taumalolo 2.0 mark my words
He's faster than our hooker , young AND mobile .
As I said , just got to be defensively sound and he'll be fantastic .
But granted , unproven in top grade as of yet .
IF he gets snavelled up by the team I am not allowed to talk about , I'll be devastated .
Whilst we're conservatively stuffing around playing wait and see .
