people were bitching about $500k - he is earning every dollar

what a monster with the ball, he doesn't even need to do the sexy line runs through a gap like he did when he was first trotted out for us, now he just barges over with pure strength and determination

what a weapon 5 trys in 2 games against top 4 sides is no joke

bloke is a chest with legs

People were bitching when he wasn't earning it. Don't think anyone is now.

people were bitching cause they have no foresight but love to judge a player on foresight

it took us 12 months to undo whatever the **** newcastle did to the bloke but undo it we did

Is it not okay to judge a player on how they are performing at the time? He was **** and Newcastle, and wanted to come to us. The contract did seem overs at the time given how he was playing. Right now he is paying every cent back times 10.

Was less about how much he might have been worth, more about how much we could have gotten him for at the time

I think the change in game plan this year has really helped his game develop. Just looks much happier with all the early ball rather than crash plays at the line

He’s going great guns for us this season.

Up there with his best ever season, you can’t be critical of his high shots when & the same time being in raptures with his big hits.
I’d love him to slightly alter his aim target & @ times tidy up his handling but there is just as many in our squad who have the same handling issues but geez, are we or am I expecting too much for him to nail the basic fundamentals like knowing how to draw & pass, he is now mid twenties & is nearing 100 games.

While I still think we could have and should have got Ramien a bit cheaper given the circumstances he was in (no contract, bad form, wants to come to us) it’s good to see what he can deliver now we are playing a game plan that supports him better.

I always said we don’t use him properly outside of SJ who plays deep into line then usually only gives crash balls to Ramien.

i cant believe that he was feasting so hard on hammer and elliott that we decided to stop going to him and start giving the ball to connor

awful game awareness

He's been a big part of our success this year.

Fitzy is a coach whisper.
