It’s good that it’s hard to nail down a starting squad this year. There is a lot of excellent talent in the squad this year, and will be of benefit if our depth is tested through the season.
I thought the trail went well. There were a few mistakes and silly penalties, which is to be expected. I like the speed and intensity and n attack and the scramble in defence, it was great to see so early in the season.
The team is fit, super fit. Some of the guys out there look like they could play for hours, Cleary is looking great too, put on some bulk and busting tackles with ease.
I saw on Fox League that Penrith will field a side that has the least NRL experience in the league. I feel we have enough experienced leaders in the team this year that we can give the premiership a real shake.
