Really liked those highlights. He's listed as 201cm but has a low centre of gravity for his height. Combine that with his preparedness to tackle and play like a big man and he projects as more of a Brodie Grundy than a Rhys Stanley physically.

The way he moves and plays in close is like a bloke who learnt his craft in smaller/medium roles then had a growth spurt. Would be curious if this was accurate?

Agree with the above - isn't it exciting to see a pick 72 develop nicely for a change ))

Out: 'The Ripe'
In: 'The Oh'

(Would also like to hear the latter used as the background music for all future Xerri highlight clips.)
So instead of cheering with a loud X, are we gonna have to go with a long Sssshhhhh?
