To be brutally honest, I barely remember Marty Berry as a player but was a big fan of Norm Berryman. I got them mixed up and thought Rocco going to be a fearsome beast of winger/centre..

Was quite shocked he was white and clearly 1/2 the size! - my bad I guess? Lol

Marty Berry, Rocco's Dad, was not the most talented players but he was skilled and a typical 2nd 5/8 in those days. I remember being told as a midfield back that if I wanted to play 2nd 5 in NPC I would have to have a crowbar smashed over my knees, if I blinked I was Centre. Marty was one of the hardest going.

That's nothing, in league they used to run us over with a bulldozer and if we blinked they broke our arms and put us on the wing.

Seen a couple people suggest CHT at 9. I'd urge you to go back and watch the games he played at 9 last season. It wasn't pretty.

The Egan situation isn't ideal — he's clearly been playing with a knock for quite some time now and is having to play 80. Given Walsh's form, I wouldn't be surprised to see Kodi move to 14 once CHT comes back, or CHT moves to 14 and comes on as a half, pushing Kodi into 9.

But in the meantime, given we're supposedly not afraid to blood new players this season, I really don't know why Otukolo hasn't been named on the bench. Especially if we're keeping him around as 18th man.

A shame to lose Turner but can absolutely understand why he'd want to move on.

A shame about Turner but not unexpected after it come out it was coming from him/his management about moving to the Broncos when Walsh was on his way. Then the FB post going around.

Good to see the club made him an offer. Our was higher so can see his motivation is game time and likely in his preferred position. He would of got game time this month with our injury toll but unfortunatley he got injured himself.

Hopefully his new club gives him opportunities to prove himself in his preffered position(s).

Good luck to him. Hopefully he goes well except for one or two games a season.

Just saying Rocco has good bloodlines
