There is definitely a hell of sense of anticipation about 2020 ....i'm busting with excitement...i dont think i've felt as much anticipation about new blood ...certainly we haven't had this level of 'new hope' since the rebel alliance stole the plans to the death star.

BTW is it just me who always reads Bytel to rhyme with little? I know it probably rhymes with My Smell, intonation on the second syllable, but can't seem to get my brain to read it that way.
I think it's just you man! You have been lost in France too long!
Just like Bonnie Tyler or if your prefer Martin Tyler!
It's By as in Why!
And yes it does rhyme with My smell as in What the Hell?

Calling him Bitil would mean i must Belittle!
Hope that clears it up a little! ;)

He looks good, being skinny isn't a bad thing for mine he will fill out over a few pre-seasons and his skill level and speed for a big guy is impressive.
Bell is currently 83 kg's - perhaps this skinny little bloke should be his mentor.

Clearly we had our eye on him as an option if someone bid earlier on Biggy than we wanted to do. Seems more like a genuine ruckman than Biggie.
Both are such long term prospects I reckon taking Bell as a rookie was the right choice.

Being premiers means you can afford to be a bit more risky

Comparison

Biggie
196cm 87kg's
92cm running and 73cm standing vertical leap,
2.86-second 20m sprint and 8.24-second agility test.

Bell
202 cm 83 kg's
73cm on the running vertical jump.
3.10 seconds on the 20-metre sprint and 8.49 seconds
