Clarke’s been disappointing. Disposal as bad as advertised pre-trade. Runs around a bit but somehow looks weak at the contest despite not being a small man.

He’s putting up Tom Mitchell numbers in the NEAFL though so I fear we’ll see him again soon enough.

Agree re: the aesthetics of blue vs red. Best in the league. Classic sporting combo. As per mcgarnagles regular complaint, it beggars belief they made the Giants an orange team.
No it does not. Giants are named Greater Western Sydney. So why would you not steal the courts of the two moat famous Western NRL clubs West's and Tigers, now the West Tigers

"yeah he didn't get up this week"

General soreness?
That's my guess, and that's what I said was going to be a concern with Jack every week now. I just don't think his body can hold up for a dozen-plus consecutive games of footy. He's struggled with just two in a row this year. Every bump or tackle is gonna come with a side dose of concerns. When he was crunched in that tackle against the Bombers, I said to myself, "Will that be him done for the next few weeks?" Turns out I wasn't totally wrong. To me it''s just not practical to carry throughout a season where ideally we want a stable best 22 who can take the field every week. Rowbottom probably won't play every game this year, but I give him a better chance at being able to run out six or so in a row without his body just breaking down.

It makes no difference anymore since rookies can be played in the seniors without being upgraded to the main list. Smith going on the lti list is so we can draft two players in the mid season draft
Not Category B Rookies. Wicks and Bell are both Category B.
