Moylan takes Chad's spot. Royce takes Moylan's. No Tracey unfortunately.

That's my opinion. Need our forwards fresh while we get our match fitness up.

Later in the year IF all is lost for 2020
Give the BIG fella a crack for a few games .
This article from early this year

Franklin Pele was used off the bench for Cronulla in short stints in the trial loss to the Bulldogs in Port Moresby and with each carry the 20-year-old prop bent the Canterbury defensive line and managed a quick play the ball to give the Sharks momentum

Sorensen has made me eat my words this year, been way better than I was expecting.
From the first trial you could tell I reckon. 27 is a good age for a forward. They can really go up a level. Makes me think how old Prior was when he started playing in the middle for us.

We need another potential leader in the pack, not another new bloke. Personally I’d be playing Sorensen at 13, simply because he’s been at the club a while and is at the age where a forward can improve. He’s no world beater, but he has the potential to set a standard in the middle, which at moment is what we’re lacking.

Desperate times...

Not a bad view

While I don't see Sorenson as a leader in the team or of the pack per se, playing the way he is this season he would be capable of setting the standard - bloke has been pretty much perfect. Also is starting to throw the ball around a bit with his new found vigor and confidence.

coach Morris can start to change the culture and drive through some accountability by picking the players that deserved to be picked and giving them more minutes &/or responsibility. instead of sticking with the hacks who keep letting us down and continuing to noise dive what's left of the teams morale or taking the punt on a fresh green starter (although sometimes this is necessary)

I would be hesitant right now to overload Sorro with too much additional work as he is doing a great job keeping it fairly simple and in limited minutes but he would be one of those deserving players to keep in mind if his good form and fitness is maintained further into the season

I thought this fellow was great when he came on yesterday.

Made some really strong runs and seemed to make some good metres.

Just had the one loose carry from what I could see.

But I thought he had plenty of potential and looked the goods!

Yeah this lad has plenty hard running in him. He's pretty raw though. I like the slow intro to FG.

I think he's doing fine.

Only getting small minutes because he'll get gassed and nice to have that big body but not sure I see the value in him being there long term. Feel using that 20m stint for maybe developing Wilton or someone else. We could easily share that 20 mins around the other middles and not lose much. An opportunity to even move Wade to the middle wiht Wilton on the edges.

but we're winning and that's all that matters. Just don't see his ceiling being that high - like a Uele or Rudolf.

He was very lucky not to get done twice, he had a bobble before the one that got called where it came loose enough it easily could have been called.
Needs to tighten that up.

Like the look of him and happy for him to keep getting runs but as I've said there is some value in rotating him with Mags, Wilton and Sorro even just to keep these guys NRL ready.

I’d carry him on the bench, get some match fitness and then give him
more minutes.

In your head, rent free
**** he only knows one way - back fence to defensive line

i thought he would be a liability but limited minutes he is playing well

5 runs for 59m was sexy as he loved the contact

i'm sure he will get more minutes. there will be times where this bench can be reconfigured/reshuffled- with the starters. build them up to make sure they come on and do the job they have to.
what combinations!!!

his try was sexy - threw himself to the line, spin and crash over, weak defence though but take it for the kid.

He is a massive unit. loved how the fox commentators recognised it. spirting image of Fifita, easy to get them mixed up

he can be an absolute weapon.

our team needs to keep building and we could be a threat to the top teams. if we are all firing.

As he gets fitter he will get more minutes

Beast though, ****in beast

He’s a monster... you could see it in his first game - deadly. We need to sign him up soon before others start circling
