Nice to watch Cam Smith being used as the footballer he is. He looks to have lost a bit of weight and he needs to be in the 17 most weeks for me.

You can't read too much into this game as the opposition was poor but it was nice to see us using dummy runners let's hope that's a sign of things to come.

Like others have said it was bloody freezing.....summer rugby is back!!!!



Using what now!? That will never catch on. I'm off to write a strongly worded letter to the powers that be because this will just not do...

Agree that Cam Smith should be in the 17 most weeks. In fact I'd be tempted to let him play loose, with Merrin, Ferres, Ward, Ablett, JJB, Donaldson covering second row. What is nice is to have such a talented player coming through who is a natural fit for a position. We have a lot of skilful players who we should let play. Trout isn't far off either - needs to bulk up a bit over time but again, athletic for a tall lad and skilful. Second coming of Steve Menzies maybe!
It's up to this crop of young lads to force the old guard out really.
1. Walker
2. Tindall
3. Broadbent
4. Newman
5. Whitton
6. McClelland
7. Spence
8. Oledzski
9. Johnson
10. Holroyd
11. Trout
12. Mustapha
13. Smith


With plenty of other notables... who needs marquees? Point is we really do have a positive future with the academy working, it's just a case of when we'll see this translate to 1st team success.

I kept expecting ref to penalise us for using them actually. I thought we was banned from having them about 7 years ago. Turns out we wasn't.

Could Cameron Smith emulate his famous namesake and play 9?

No. We've Corey Johnson for that role.

Yep thought England looked most composed against the Aussies when Johnson was on the field.

Golding linked well from fullback and made some breaks and passes. Looked sharp.
