Fisher-Harris, Dallin & Tamou ???

I think this mostly just a training run for all intensive purposes. You will probably see them (and perhaps Cleary) in the final trial against the Eels.

2 of em played in the all stars game so they have a run under their belt, and much better run than a trial too just quietly. Both went good too :ok_hand:

:mega: Results and reports have been added to the top of thread

A good trial, with some questions answered, some unanswered and some new ones being asked.

I do hope Billy is ok with that knee, at lest better for it happen early in the season than late.

Edwards showed why there should be no doubt he is the No1 fullback.

Tim Grant showed form and determination that should see he as part of our prop rotation through the year.

May showed why heโ€™s the kind of player you canโ€™t leave out of your team.

Cartwright showed the goods in the centres, after an injury plagued 2018. This year may be his final chance to crack the top grade.

All the other first graders looked fit and firing.

And then there are the hookers โ€ฆ

Started with Katao, who looked sharp and with a much tighter passing game. The benefits of training under Wallace seems to be paying dividends.scored a nice dummy half try.

Second half with Egan, who looked sharp with a tighter passing game. Training under Wallace looks to be paying dividends. 2 try assists including a nice in-goal grubber.

I donโ€™t know which way we will go with the 9.

The less than impressiveโ€ฆ


Luai didnโ€™t have a great impact eitherโ€ฆ not that he did anything wrong.

Always hard to judge form in trials of course, players at different stages at preparation, some a little over -cautious not to get injured etc.

But one thing to take out this trial is we sure have great depth.

I was super impressed with Tim Grant last night, he played out of his skin and seemed like he was in every tackle when he was out on the field.

You could tell is gunning for a spot in the starting 17, and with a performance like last night, he may very well end up with one.
