#1 Andy McGrath - three more years


#3716

Picks the line very quickly out of congestion, and runs out into space, it’s a rare quality.


#3717

Stood up on Canada day


#3718

Had a great game on Sunday. Love the way he weaved through traffic.


#3719

Very unlucky not to get in the coaches’ votes. Was immense, especially towards the end of the game.


#3720

How he develops his kicking will determine whether he becomes a very good player or a star.


#3721

Not sure.

He is as good a kick as Chris Judd was.


#3722

Agree. But he’s a very, very driven individual. I’m pretty sure he will sharpen up the kicking.


#3723

He hasn’t got any real depth and I’m not sure how much he can improve that. He is a pretty neat kick but he doesn’t back himself to take an attacking option so it’s hard to assess. It’s certainly no weapon.


#3724

You don’t think Merrett is a great kick?


#3725

No I think Merrett is an excellent kick, I just forgot he played for us for a sec.


#3726

fair enough then :slight_smile:


#3727

Not that I’ve gone back over it but I think on weekend when McGrath had a kick when under pressure /needed to hit target he did

He can’t kick very far but was drilling his passes IIRC


#3728

His disposal is very clean and accurate by hand and foot


#3729

Still sprays too many


#3730

He’s less ‘heart in the mouth’ than Heppell and Hurley at the moment.


#3731

Agree most of our experienced senior players make me nervous these days. Add goddard and sometimes even hooker to that list.


#3732

the players taking the kicks don’t make me nervous… the kicks they try to take are what make me nervous…


#3733

Lolz I get nervous when they don’t try and take those kicks.


#3734

I get mad when they don’t. there’s no pleasing me.


#3735

I get mad regardless of what happens.
