Agree with all of the above - a true impact player of the bench. I did not know he was a Canberra (Cooma?) boy. I chuckled that we had a heavily biased Canberra boys bench - Williams, Hunt, Tommy.

Loved Flanno's throw back line in commentary about Jack being the strongest bloke in the gym (the gym Flanno built no doubt) - back when none of us gave a **** about that cause the bloke had butter hands but I do remember him beating Gals club record in the gym or something

I think Hunt got the dead lift record a few years ago though and is strongest in NRL

Give Jack a tan and some ball skills and he can be our Sorrenson

As it stands though he has a simple job and is doing it excellent

Not sure about deadlift but believe Hunt was first NRL player to record a 200kg bench press

Was doing the haka for wades send off.

I was certain he had kiwi heritage.
Thought I saw Nicho in the back too. I'm not well versed in Maori culture, but I don't think it's held as something you can only do if you're a descendant. It's more about respect etc.

Happy to be corrected.

My step father is a very proud kiwi. I asked him. His opinion was that it would be very disrespectful if someone not from that heritage/culture took part in the haka.

Cheers for sharing. Got a lot of proud kiwis in that group too, so maybe he is Kiwi? Or maybe it varies for different people. I certainly wasn't aware of it for those boys, and they didn't join in after his last game.

Jack Williams - 2023
More than any other player, you know what you get with Jack. 30 minutes of high intensity in all parts of the field.

Note that he played second row in round 22, so that game has been excluded from his totals.

Slight trend for Jack's tackle % to drop a few points if he stays out there longer, but boy does he make up for it with runs out of his own end.
