Some of the contracts we give out are just insane

He had an interrupted season. At worse, he will be good depth next year. I wouldn't have given him 3 years, but even I concede he was very good last season

Don't agree about Henry being soft. That mark he took late was very courageous. He is young and slight. His defensive run is an issue, I agree.
How about the one before that where he meekly stuck out one hand instead of marking?

I think he has a lot of potential but he's absolutely a soft player at this point in time. I'd be fine with him squibbing the occasional contest like that if he was willing to run hard to chase and tackle - chasing and tackling doesn't take bravery because you're not the one who's vulnerable. It only takes work ethic.

That he doesn't do that is the part that really annoys me.

Either Caleb Serong is the best pick 8 in history, or Liam Henry is not showing anything to justify being a pick 9. The gulf between those two consecutive picks is unbelievable

I agree about the run. I also don't blame himfor being a little self protective when he has big bodies coming at him from all angles because some idiot put hm in that predicament by dropping it on his head. He is only a kid ffs

No. The highlight of the season is that we finally broke the derby drought. Few people on here have dementia

beating the eagles is your seasons highlite.
Very low idea of a high light.

How about a plus in the win column and our season going into the finals
A win in the finals might also put a tick in the high lights column

Henry was a massive reach at 9
Still better than we would of got at our next pick though, and I actually think he will come good once we get rid of all the useless players who burn the ball every chance they get. He looks quite good on the wing too.
