I posted in another thread, there was an interview with Nathan Brown, who said Melbourne won the comp last year with one of the biggest packs. He didn’t seem to think the game speeding up will be an issue for bigger packs.
Yes melbourne pack in 2020 was huge n they looked fine n fit. Oh and who else had a big pack? Canberra n they seem to not have a problem either with the speed of the game. Everyone assumes bigger packs will struggle.I posted in another thread, there was an interview with Nathan Brown, who said Melbourne won the comp last year with one of the biggest packs.

Yeah I remember Fakatoumafi’s few U20 games, made a lot of errors, but was impressive for Southern Cross Campus before that. To me he highlights why we should only be signing outside backs from first XV ranks. Fakatoumafi was probably the top outside back in the country in high school rugby league in his last couple years but the difference in talent between him and Viliami Vailea or Rocco Berry is night and day.Yeh pic 41 is taniela otukolo, unsure what picture I was looking at.
Agreed with Sebastyan Jack, havnt seen anything to think he’s anything special. Obviously POS has seen something. William Fakatoumafi is a bit of a forgotten man. Slipped through the cracks of being too young for the last year of under 20s and too old for SG ball. I think the last time I saw him play was when he scored a try for the Tongan 9s team
Good point. Its all about balance. Melbourne had the speed to take advantage of any opportunities their pack created. For us it might be in other areas, Nikorima speed over a short distances or RTS with his agility/stepping.It’s funny Brown said that Melbourne won with a heavy pack. They also had the fastest back 3 too. We probably have the slowest.
