There are a few new faces in the game this year, some usual suspects as well. Who else have I missed.

Paasi)Outstanding against Leeds, after getting flattened by Pauli in previous game, this guy changed the game.

Pauli Pauli)Flattened Paasi,

Tetevano ) probably facing a ban, but looking some player.

Elijah Taylor) Salford star man perhaps.

Big Dave) Not quite hitting his best yet., but if their kid comes, watch out, double trouble.

The King) Unknown abdicated very quickly.

Prior) Superb prop, workhorse Leeds best forward.

Tag) After a good showing v Salford he still looks out of condition.

Mau) Steady, but unspectacular.

Cooper) Good prop for Warry

Big Chris) Very promising,

Watts) Not looking anywhere near his best

Walmsley), Big Al was a little under par v Leeds. The rest of super league will jump for joy.

Mau has been a disappointment for me.Steady is about right in summing up.
he has real pace but just not seen any broken field running from him given he has such strength.
Cant fault his defence or work rate but has the passing ability of jamie shaul.
Liam Watts seems to be under par and i just wonder with Powell leaving this has affected his game.

I'm hoping Ma'u is yet to show us his best form. He's been ok, but hasn't really lived up to his reputation yet tbh.

I agree about Ma'u. He's been steady but hasn't quite made the impact I was hoping for. He was absolutely outstanding for Parramatta before he signed for us and I was expecting a bit more from him.

He had a stop start first season due to injury and suspension and only occasionally showed what a class player he is. He has made the odd uncharacteristic error which seems to have effected his confidence. You can't fault his effort and I'm confident we'll see him back to his best before too long.

You might want to add Andrew Fifita to that list if the reports have some substance.

I thought he finished the season strongly, but has been a bit off form this year, too many errors, I'm sure he will get his form back.

Defensively he has been outstanding though

Yep twins. Cronulla paying part of his wages. Arriving on 17th May just in time for the full opening of the Westgate Run.

All speculation of course :D

He always runs the ball in with intensity too. I think he will benefit more as the season progresses. The reason he was so devastating in the NRL is because he was literally running at one man, as defences had to keep an eye on Gutherson, Jennings etc. In SL, we have been pretty predictable to defend against so teams can double up on him. However, with the threat on the left edge with Griffin and the class of Connor, defences may need to be weary of that, and not double up on Ma'u - which will see him busting tackles for fun!
