    Quality footage 40/20/ Excellent mate and very clear. The boys spread the ball well and defended about 5-6 sets on line I think.

      Their discipline for the age group is outstanding and I think it is a positive reflection on our Harold Matthews coach, Scott Jones. Last year I reserved judgement on his talents as a coach as he was handed a stacked roster but even so you could see the control and precision in the way they played and once again it is shining through with a new crop of kids.

      Credit where it is due, he seems to run a tight ship! Hopefully his professional approach will get our District Rep talents a step ahead as they get move towards senior football where professional playing and training systems become increasingly demanding.

    From your highlights package, Dylan Brown seems a good recent addition to the team – from NZ, I believe. He seems select with his passing and a very composed half. Matt Doorey looks a very willing worker. He seems to really enjoy getting around the park. Cliff Lea’aetoa has a good step on him and is a very strong runner of the footy. I think he’s quite versatile, too: can cover fullback, wing, centre, half & lock! Wellington Seve is always busy and probing. There’s a lot of Denzal Tonise in his appearance, and in the manner in which he carries himself on the field. I’m sure he can play dummy-half at the drop of a hat. And Kyle Schneider made a good dart out of dummy-half… How is the team shaping up defensively? Any big hitters or tackling machines among what seems a very good attacking outfit?.. Also, how are Stefano and Valance coming along? Didn’t get much insight into either player other than the former’s barge-over effort early in the piece – I figure Stefano would be hard to stop from that close to the line no matter the occasion!.. Thanks for your work Forty.

      They were strong in defence, they had to defend about 2-3 consecutive sets on their line and didn’t crack. We’ll know how good they are when they come up against a better, more professional team. This weekend against Balmain may be a good indicator.
