#26 Cale "Thank You Mr" Hooker

Heil Hooker


#3787

oh my


#3788

I can’t see hooker slipping our fans the finger let alone kiss it.


#3789

Yeah, but we don’t spit at our players either.


#3790

got moved closer to goal under Buckley. Didn’t work.


#3791

LOL he runs like he’s never seen a real person run before and he’s copying it off early 2000s video games.


#3792

Thoroughly enjoyed, would watch again.


#3793

Looks so natural.


#3794

He’s going back and you’re all gonna fkg like it.


#3795

Set him free Woosha


#3796

How goods the tackle by begley after.

also spoils into a spot we can potential regain possession.

almost like hes a bona fide gun defender.

#3798

Its the way he distributes the ball and directs play that makes him so effective down there. I think he would bring Saad and McKenna into the game far more than we currently are with his use of the ball from intercept marks. Hurley is great at what he does but I dont think he uses the ball as smartly as Hooker.


#3799

no it’s not. It’s the contested intercept marking till the early morn.


#3800

You don’t need to convince me.

I would love him back there!

I think structurally it may effect the forwardline at first but that may actually force Wooshas hand on getting some more defensive small in the forwardline to create pressure.

Win, win as far as I’m concerned.


#3801

True, but what he then does with the ball is so important. Its rarely just a kick back up the line, he finds a runner or a switch kick and sets off the slingshot. Thats what we are missing this year, it’s chaos coming out of the backline.


#3802

Along with tackling, smothering, shepherding, kicking goals and a handful of other things.


#3803

The difference is hooker marks it cleanly in his hands and lands on his a feet ready to dish so we can transition quicker. Hurley often double grabs, or Falls over or takes a chest marks. More often than not be goes back behind his mark too.

Hooker bringing Saad and Conor into the game more is an interesting point that is not considered before


#3804

watch him start at FF and kick 1.3 for the day


#3805

if it was me. id play goddard on a forward flank and hooker back. Goddard on song is a fantastic field kick. I want that forward of centre.

something like

Baguely Hurley Harts
Zaharakis Hooker Saad
McGrath Smith Orazio
Stringer Stewart Goddard
Green Daniher Walla
Foll: TBC, Heppell, ZMerrett

Bench: Guelfi, Parish, Begley, Mckernan.
